* It is confirmed by WordOfGod that the town Hey Arnold takes place in was heavily influenced by Seattle Washington, but is known as "Hillwood" in the show. But in every episode you never see the Seattle Kingdome in the background. This is because the Kingdome was demolished by Soviet artillery fire during the Third World War in 1989 and was never rebuilt. In addition to that, smaller townships within Seattle may have been established thus giving birth to "Hillwood" after the war. Or Hillwood just happens to exist as one of the smaller municipalities within this alternate Seattle.
** I have also realized this can also explain the absence of Arnold's parents. Perhaps they were killed during the invasion or perhaps they died in Cascade Falls and Arnold survived. Arnold's Grandpa made up the adventurer stories and forged the journal to buy him some time before Arnold finds out how they really died ''or'' wait until Arnold is old enough to understand the truth.
** In addition to this, Lila's last name is "Sawyer". Plus her father looks like he could be a related to Colonel Sawyer who successfully repelled the Soviet invasion on the west coast and in Europe.

* As payback for foiling his evil schemes, La Sombra blackmailed Eduardo into convincing them to return to San Lorenzo. Once they were in his clutches, he either killed them both or kept Stella alive as a sex-slave, bearing a child who will go on to become Arnold's arch nemesis if the series ever gets revived.
** That... No. [[BigNo NO]]. That's just too sad, dammit! What ''actually'' happened is that after La Sombra was Defeated For Good, the trip into the mountains delivering medicine went awry, stranding them in a mix of Shangri-La and Brigadoon. Both parents are alive and well, they're just unable to get back to Arnold because the refuge they were given shelter in has yet to return to the Earthly plane.

* The former part of this may or may not be confirmed by WordOfGod, but it has certainly been heaily implied. She's tired all the time, has no energy for anything, and certainly never seems happy. She's also constantly drinking 'smoothies' that aren't explicitly mentioned as being alcoholic, but seem to have a similar effect on her. Furthermore, rumour has it that a spin-off from ''Hey, Arnold'' was proposed aimed at an older audience, and in which Helga's mother explicitly attended Alcoholic's Anonymous meetings.
** There are some moments (though regrettably I can't recall a specific episode) where you can actually hear ice clinking in a glass as Miriam speaks to Helga. These moments generally occur while she is not visible- and if she was drinking something innocuous, why hide it? There are lots of clues- for example, in one episode Helga is looking for Miriam and is told by Bob that "she's asleep behind the couch," whereupon Miriam pops up looking disoriented, glasses askew. She often slurs while speaking, also- the list goes on.
** Makes sense because in one episode, she was looking for Tabasco sauce while making a drink and Tabasco sauce is an ingredient in a Bloody Mary.

Mary.



* The episode will be a VerySpecialEpisode about divorce and alcoholism. Big Bob, being [[JerkAss Big Bob]] will decide that instead of ''helping'' Miriam, he will decide to leave her and take Helga. Helga will be distraught about having to leave PS 118 (and Arnold) to live alone with her father, and she runs away, living at Sunset Arms with Arnold and his grandparents.
*** This is one of the only theories that I've read so far that I could actually see happening.

* In keeping with the above two entries, Bob and Miriam, whose relationship was on the rocks, decide to try for another child to improve things. RealityEnsues, and the reason that Olga is [[ParentalFavoritism the favorite]] is because she reminds them of when they got along better, while Helga inherently represents when things started to fall apart.

Rumors of a reboot were spreading around shortly before ''TJM'' was finally confirmed to be coming out. So basically, ''TJM'' will give closure to the old ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'' series and satisfy those old fans. Then a rebooted series will debut shortly after. New continuity, new voice cast for a new generation of fans. It seems unlikely that they'd finally make this movie after ''15 years'' without planning to follow it up with something, and since the planned ''Patakis'' spin-off was turned down by the networks for being a ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}'' rip-off and too depressing, a reboot is pretty much the only option. Hopefully it won't be as controversial as ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'' or ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls2016''.

[[WMG: ''THe Jungle Movie'' will feature an argument between Arnold and Gerald - perhaps even turning physical - over recent events that mirrors fan arguments about bringing Hey Arnold back only as the Jungle Movie, and about the previous movie's similar nature]]
It's been confirmed that the movie will be extremely meta, and, well, there's a reason the BigDamnMovie page used to be titles 'Why Is Arnold Saving Something?'.
