** In "School Play", when P.S. 118's production of "Romeo & Juliet" comes to a close, there is hardly a dry eye from anyone who had watched the play.

** The first season is a lot different from the other seasons. The animation is of much lower quality, with lots of OffModel scenes, there were fewer episodes centered on Helga (and she lacked any redeeming qualities for a while, with the abuse and neglect she suffered being used as a form of ComedicSociopathy), Arnold has a crush on Ruth, who is nowhere to be found after season 1, there is a heavier focus on bizarre one-shot characters as opposed to Arnold’s classmates, and on top of all that, Arnold is FAR more child-like and immature compared to the later seasons.

* FanDisservice:
** In TheMovie, it's Grandma Gertie in her showgirl outfit. It comes with noticeable, unflattering cleavage and JigglePhysics. It gets weird when she's initially seen in it as she appears to have the body of a younger woman. Thankfully after she's arrested we just see her in a standard prison jumpsuit.
** Another instant is when Gertie decides to go naked in "Summer Love" after encountering some naturists at the beach, her nudity thankfully obscured by [[HandOrObjectUnderwear a surfboard]]. Phil even lampshades it.

** Fanfic writers are also particularly fond of the plot where a character leaves/runs away from town, stays away for years, and then comes back as an adult. This type of story usually stars Helga, who comes back [[ShesAllGrownUp hot]] and much nicer, and at the end finally manages to be with Arnold)

* EvilLaugh: Curly wins in the best psychotically evil laugh department, but Helga has a pretty impressive one as well. Some of the other characters get one in certain episodes: Sid for example gets on in "''Sid's Revenge,''" and [[BewareTheNiceOnes Phoebe]] gets a brief but creepy evil chuckle in "''Phoebe Breaks a Leg.''"

** Lila mentions she gets sick on the big amusement rides in "Love and Cheese". After riding the coaster in "Timberly Loves Arnold" she's seen throwing up.
** There's a couple in the movie involving the episode "Dino Checks Out." Out of his album covers spoofing Music/TheDoors Strange Days is seen in Grandma's jail cell, and the Dino Impersonator is seen in the bar Arnold and Gerald sneak into.

* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Sheck in the movie, who isn't above burning a historical document declaring the neighborhood where the main characters live as a national landmark just to build a huge mall.
** Technically that wasn't corruption, that was revenge. As he wanted to destroy that neighborhood because that's where his ancestor lost.



** Played straight when Arnold and Gerald try to slip past two security officers working for Scheck in [[BigDamnMovie the movie]] and Gerald gives one of them a kick to the family jewels.

* TheBGrade: "Olga Comes Home" had Olga spiral into a depression over Helga changing one of the perfect grades on her report card into a B.

* BigDamnMovie: In spades.[[note]]There's a reason why this trope was originally called "Why Is Arnold Saving Something".[[/note]] While the regular series is purely SliceOfLife and features down-to-earth problems faced by each individual character[[note]]The only episodes that could be described as having an action scene are "Runaway Float" and "Save the Tree".[[/note]], the movies are a different deal.
** ''Hey Arnold! The Movie'' is an expanded version of "Save the Tree", featuring Arnold and Gerald sneaking into a corporate building using spy gadgets, Helga revealing her secret love for Arnold, the main characters on a runaway bus, the overpass behind the boarding house being blown up, underground explosions, and an army of bulldozers.

* AnguishedDeclarationOfLove: In ''Hey Arnold! The Movie'', Helga gives one to Arnold along with a [[TheBigDamnKiss passionate kiss]]. [[spoiler:Then revealed at the end that she denies it.]]
** Helga does this twice in ''The Jungle Movie''. The second one sticks, as Arnold blows off the first one.

* CommunityThreateningConstruction: The BigDamnMovie, which has the residents of Arnold's neighbourhood banding together ([[HeelFaceTurn although some later than others]]) to prevent the neighbourhood from being razed and turned into a mall by a CorruptCorporateExecutive. This includes Arnold and Gerald going into a quest to find documents that show that the neighbourhood has historical significance.



* ConspicuousCG: In the third act of ''Hey Arnold! The Movie'', the [=FTi=] helicopters, the bulldozers, Scheck's car, and Murray's bus are very clearly 3D models. They stand out because they aren't like that all the time. If you pay attention, you can see how in one shot, the bus/bulldozer is hand-drawn, while in the next it's 3D.
** Justified, since the movie ''was'' made in 2000-2001.
