During the late 80s and early 90s, Craig created the now-famous football-headed kid know as Arnold, as a clay puppet.



''Hey Arnold'' was in production continuously from 1995 to 2001, made by Bartlett's own production company, Snee-Oosh, Inc, which he founded in 1986. The series culminated in a TV movie originally titled "Arnold Saves the Neighborhood", which Nickelodeon decided to release theatrically as ''Hey Arnold: TheMovie'', in June 2002. Unfortunately, a second planned movie, which was meant to serve as the show's GrandFinale and tie up all loose ends was cancelled due to the first movie not meeting expectations and Bartlett and Nick disagreeing on a contract extension.

The dispute resulted in Bartlett leaving Nickelodeon to write and produce a TV movie for Cartoon Network called ''WesternAnimation/PartyWagon'' (also produced by Snee-Oosh), a story originally intended as a pilot for an ongoing series. The pilot was not picked up, however. During his time at Creator/CartoonNetwork, he worked with Van Partible on the fourth and final season of ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyBravo''.

In September 2008, a show for preschoolers called ''Jim Henson's WesternAnimation/DinosaurTrain'' was picked up by PBS Kids. Produced by Brian Henson, this was the first show created by Bartlett to be picked up since ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold''. The series debuted on PBS stations on September 7, 2009. Years later, he would create another PBS Kids show called ''WesternAnimation/ReadyJetGo'' .

But mostly importantly for 90s kids, after 15 years of campaigning by fans, Bartlett announced that Nick finally gave the green light to the long awaited Hey Arnold: The Jungle Movie as a 2 hour TV movie. Bartlett and much of the original crew will be returning and several of the voice actors are reprising their roles.
