On The 20th Anniversary Of ‘Hey Arnold!’ Let Us Remember Stoop Kid

Hey Arnold! premiered twenty years ago meaning we’re officially old as shit.
The show, which ran on Nickelodeon 1996-2004 depicted the lives of kids in Hillwood, a fictional city said to be a combination of Seattle, Brooklyn, and Portland, Oregon.
Hey Arnold! was an important show as it was an authentic portrayal of middle-class urban kids in a multicultural setting.
But one of the stars of the entire series, despite his relative brief appearances, was Stoop Kid.

Stoop Kid was something of a legendary figure in Hillwood. It is said that when he was born he was left on the stoop, doomed to a life of reading The Little Engine That Could and watching his mini-tv.
While the neighborhood kids would routinely pick on and bully Stoop Kid, he was also quick to criticize any and all passers by.
