Nickelodeon gave fans a first look at character art for the new “Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie” during the 25 Years of Nickelodeon Animation panel at Comic-Con.

The artwork included six photos featuring the title character, Arnold, as well as Helga, Gerald, Phoebe, Grandpa and Abner, Arnold’s spirited pet pig. The images capture the personalities of the characters that fans of the animated series will remember: Arnold and Gerald appearing laid-back and cool and Helga frowning with her fist balled up.

One nostalgic image shows Arnold and Gerald enjoying ice cream cones on Arnold’s front porch while Helga looks annoyed after her’s falls down.

  5. gabe says:

    wow so they are making this after all huh well ok

  6. Brian says:

    So why is Gerald the only one who looks different? The flat top is what made the character so unique. is a flat top somehow racist?

    • Jibbik says:

      Gerald never had a flat top. It was more of a tall afro.
      And it is absolutely not what made the character unique. Did you even watch the show?

    • srtatacomal says:

      Gerald is not the only one who looks different. Helga didn’t have any hint of breasts before. Phoebe’s little ponytail used to be a bun. All of them have different but similar outfits. Arnold’s the only one whose looks didn’t change.

      • Jason says:

        Actually Arnold’s clothes are slightly different. He has replaced his sweater with a cardigan and removed the “skirt” look that his flannel shirt used to create. I think it was even a joke in the show once when someone made fun of him and he pointed out it was a shirt.

      • 2hypedm8 says:

        Arnold has a jacket on now, it was just a sweater over his flannel before
