Hey Arnold has been known to give some of the most heartwarming and memorable holiday specials in Nickelodeon or even TV history. Of course, everyone remembers the Halloween, Valentine's Day, and Christmas special, but not many people bring up the Veteran's Day special. It debuted on November 6th, 1999, which was around when Season 4 was coming to a close. It debuted after the "Headless Cabbie/Friday the 13th" episode but before most people's favorite episode "Helga on the Couch". Couple with how incredible "Helga on the Couch" was plus a holiday many people don't appreciate makes "Veteran's Day" sidetracked when it first came out. How does it hold up today? Let's see as we look into "Veteran's Day".
Overall, this is one of the most overlooked and underrated episodes of Hey Arnold and happens to be one of my all time favorites. It's told very well with funny jokes and heartwarming moments. Sure, it's not as memorable as the Hey Arnold Christmas special, but it's still up there as one of the greats. As of now, it's the only cartoon that I know of that has a Veteran's Day special. I recommend that you watch this episode and pay respects for the men and women we lost in exchange for our freedom.
That's all for now. Hope to see you around Old School Lane soon. Happy Veteran's Day.
