* AdaptationExpansion: Arnold originated in a series of [[StopMotionAnimation claymation]] shorts for ''Series/SesameStreet'', albeit as much different character who [[MisterImagination frequently daydreamed]]. Needless to say, it was nothing like what it would become.

** Arnold himself can do anything. By the time of the movie, most of the neighbourhood believes he can save them from having to sell up and move. And he does.

** Bob and Miriam Pataki, but especially Bob, are abusive to their daughters in different ways. Bob has a horrible temper, is extremely authoritarian, and is [[WhenAreYouComingHomeDad otherwise obsessed with his work]], while Miriam is always either loopy or [[TheAlcoholic passed out on the couch with]] "[[FrothyMugsOfWater smoothies]]." The two of them pay any mind to Helga, always calling her by her sister Olga's name ([[ParentalFavoritism whom they dote on whenever she's around]]). Meanwhile, their EducationMama tendencies turn Olga into a neurotic mess from having to be perfect for them, to the point that [[TheBGrade getting a B on an otherwise flawless report card]] causes a nervous breakdown. "Helga On The Couch" delves into this at length.

* AbusiveParents: Helga and the Jolly-Olly Man both have G-rated versions of these. Helga's mother is always passed out on the couch with "[[FrothyMugsOfWater smoothies]]" and never seems to be in a right state of mind. Her father, meanwhile, has a horrible temper, is extremely authoritarian, and is otherwise obsessed with his work. Neither of them pay any mind to Helga, always calling her by her sister Olga's name ([[ParentalFavoritism who they dote on whenever she's around]]). Bob and Miriam's (particularly Bob's) treatment of Olga can be considered abusive in a different way. She's a neurotic mess from having to perform all the time "like a wind-up doll" and her perfectionism is implied to be the result of some pretty extreme EducationMama tendencies on the part of her parents. When she got TheBGrade, it triggered a nervous breakdown that had her admitting that she would rather be treated like Helga.
** See the episode "Helga on the Couch" for more information.
