* FanficFuel: Craig Bartlett revealed enough details about the Jungle Movie and ''The Patakis'', that many fanfic writers have written their own versions. The Jungle Movie itself is finally happening, so it will be interesting to see how much the fanfic authors get right.

* WinTheCrowd: The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=su8IHV0AH2o San Diego Comic Con preview]] of ''The Jungle Movie'' did this for anyone who had doubts about the film, showing crisp animation, tons of CallBacks and ContinuityNods to the series, [[TheBusCameBack a few characters who disappeared during the series returning]] and that the returning voice actors could still do their characters' voices while the new voice actors sound just like the originals.

*** Lane Toran (then known and credited as Toran Caudell) was the first Arnold on the show proper[[note]]J.D. Daniels voiced him in the pilot, which was only shown in theaters[[/note]] and only lasted one season in the part (though he subbed in for Philip Van Dyke in the season 2 MusicalEpisode "What's Opera, Arnold?" because Van Dyke wasn't a confident singer). Even after his voice broke, he remained with the show for its entirely as the bully Wolfgang, a role created specifically for him. Due to FirstInstallmentWins, he's often remembered as "the" Arnold by the media - in 2015, a widely-reported story (with pictures!) noted how "the voice of Arnold" was all grown up. Toran is also frequently invited to fan conventions and panels reminiscing about his time on the show, alongside Francesca Marie Smith.

** Arnie. Everyone (other than Lila) hates him and openly mocks and ridicules him, even genuinely nice kids like Phoebe, ''to his face'' just because he happens to be a little peculiar. He never does anything to deserve that kind of treatment either. Perhaps Lila liking him isn't such a bad thing after all, since she's about the only one who shows him any affection.

* WTHCastingAgency: Alex D. Linz, Arnold's last voice actor during the series, isn't well liked by the fanbase. One reason is that, while Arnold had many actors during the series, Toran Caudell, Philip Van Dyke, and Spencer Klein all had similar sounding voices while Linz's was noticeably higher than the others, making Arnold sound too young. Another reason is because [[ReplacementScrappy he replaced Spencer Klein]], who, as noted above, [[ToughActToFollow is considered by many fans to be ''the'' Arnold]]. Fortunately for them, Linz only voices Arnold in the last three episodes and when they recast the role for ''The Jungle Movie'', the crew selected Mason Vale Cotton, whose voice is much more similar sounding to the first three actors.

** While Lila is portrayed in the series as a nice girl, many fanfics tend to demonize her, portraying her as a cruel, {{Manipulative B|astard}}itch (or in T-rated fics, as a slut) who deliberately gets in the way of [[OfficialCouple Arnold and Helga]]. The fact that Craig Bartlett says that Lila had a repressed dark side only adds fuel to these types of fanfics, even though he also clarified that she's not a bad person, her trying too hard to repress her dark side is meant to parallel Helga who tries too hard to repress her good side.

** WordOfGod mentions that Lila has a dark side she keeps repressed much like how Helga represses her good side, but this is never actually explored, even though doing so would have [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap made Lila a more interesting character]] and a more sympathetic one since ''how'' her dark side was born would be very obvious to anyone who had watched her debut episode. But sadly we're stuck with just a straight [[ThePollyanna Pollyanna]] rather than a deconstruction of one.

** Lila creates a lot of different interpretations. There are elements to support her being either a manipulative BitchInSheepsClothing hiding behind a mask of sweetness, or a StepfordSmiler trying to be as sweet and smart as can be while having a difficult life. WordOfGod is that she has a repressed darker side (which was never shown in the series); however, this just adds fuel to the fire. Then there's the UnrequitedLoveSwitcheroo between her and Arnold, and Lila being the MasterOfTheMixedMessage. Some suggest that she intentionally led Arnold on and gave him false hope (see: the end of "Love and Cheese"), while others suggest that she genuinely got over him while still caring for him deeply, and turned Arnold's advances down [[ShipperOnDeck to stay out of the way for Helga's sake]].
