Movies and Chill — 90s90s90s: nickelodeonplease: Nickelodeon...

Heeeeeeere's... Woohoo! I'm back once again with my continuing project of rewatching and reviewing every episode of Hey Arnold. Welp, we're halfway there... or three-fifths there. While I was rewatching Season 2, I was worried that any subsequent season after the first would be inferior. Turns out I was mostly wrong. Not long after rewatching Season 2, I started rewatching Season 3, which originally aired from September 1998 to March 1999 (although the season finale didn't air until Season 5. Again, WTF Nick?) This season consists of 20 episodes of 34 11-minute segments and 3 22-minute specials.

As with my last entries, I will be rating the episodes either Bold, Good, Meh, Bad, and Raspberry. Will S3 be bold like S1 and S2? Let's dive right in...

43a. Stinky Goes Hollywood: Bold | 43b. Olga Gets Engaged: Meh

44a. Crabby Author: Good | 44b. Rich Kid: Good

45a. Helga Blabs It All: Bold | 45b. Harold the Butcher: Good

46a. Arnold Betrays Iggy: Raspberry | 46b. Helga and the Nanny: Meh

47a. Dangerous Lumber: Bold | 47b. Mr. Hyunh Goes Country: Bold

48a. Arnold's Room: Meh | 48b. Helga vs Big Patty: Good

49a. Career Day: Good | 49b. Hey Harold!:  Bold

50a. Casa Paradiso: Meh | 50b. Gerald's Tonsils: Good

51a. Phoebe Takes the Fall: Bold | 51b. The Pig War: Bold

52a. Best Man: Good | 52b. Cool Party: Bold

53a. Sid's Revenge: Bad | 53b. Roller Coaster: Good

54a. Grandpa's Birthday: Good | 54b. Road Trip: Good

55a. Arnold and Lila: Bad | 55b. Grand Prix: Good

56s. Arnold's Thanksgiving: Bold

57a. Girl Trouble: Bad | 57b. School Dance: Meh

58a. Helga's Show: Bad | 58b. The Flood: Bold

59s. School Play: Bold

60s.* Parents Day: Bold


...And that was every episode of Hey Arnold Season 3 reviewed. Let's take a gander at the chart.

*sigh* Looks like Season 3 wasn't as bold as I thought it would be, not saying S3 was terrible though as it had many fantastic episodes. I also noticed the chart looks like a crooked peace symbol with the Bold and Good making up the "top parts." Much like S2, S3 only had one Raspberry episode (and probably the most infamous in the whole show.) However, the Meh and Bad episodes have increased from S2. It kinda makes me fear for Seasons 4 and 5. Alright, I've rambled enough. Time to give this season a rating.

What would I rate Hey Arnold Season 3? Even though it lost some boldness, it's still a very GOOD season.

Now onto my Top 5 episodes of this season. Once again, it's hard to choose.

  1.  Parents Day
  2.  Helga Blabs It All
  3.  Dangerous Lumber
  4.  Curly Snaps
  5.  Hey Harold!  

Now for my Bottom 5, which is much easier since they episodes here ranked Bad or lower.

  1.  Arnold Betrays Iggy
  2.  Girl Trouble
  3.  Sid's Revenge
  4.  Helga's Show
  5.  Arnold & Lila

That brings us to the end of my review of Hey Arnold Season 3. Wow, I can't believe how fast I'm going through this. At the time of this blog's release, I've already finished watching Season 4 and I'm trying really hard to savor Season 5. This is Woohoo signing off or signing out. I still don't know the difference. -_-

iirc, Arnold Betrays Iggy was so bad, Craig Bartlett himself publicly disowned the episode, going so far as to indirectly write Iggy off entirely, with his last mention being

Spoiler

In the episode where Dino fakes his death, when Arnold walks by a trash can and goes to check it, he says "Iggy? Is that you?"

I'm wondering if that's symbolism on his feeling on both the character and/or the show

Eugene: The Mauve Storm!

 

Sid: The Dark Avenger!

 

Stinky: I've got it! What about "The Mauve Avenger"?"

 

Arnold: There is no way we're calling our go-cart the Mauve Avenger. :bea:

Arnold: I can't believe we called our go-cart the Mauve Avenger. :mlp_maud:

Curly: "I say we paint ourselves with tiger stripes, and go free all the animals in the zoo!" :wau:

Grandpa: Well, that's it. I must be in heaven. Oh, no! Oskar's here! This must be the other place!

Principal Wartz: Are you attempting to leave the school grounds without permission, Miss Pataki? 

Helga: Are you attempting to dance the flamenco, Principal Wartz? 

Principal Wartz: This moment never happened. 

Helga: Gotcha.

Actually, Iggy did appear and have a speaking role in the Season 5 episode "Gerald's Game." However, ever since Season 3, he has been reduced to a background character. :eww:
