Hey, Football Head!

Arnold’s head is shaped like a football. He lives in a boarding house under a freeway. He deals with bullies, lost baseballs, a pig named Abner, and a tough girl named Helga who constantly teases him but secretly writes poems about him. Sound bad? Not for Arnold. His neighborhood is the only place he ever wants to be.

• Craig •

The series came to life after Craig created various versions of the football-headed hero. First came an Arnold comic strip for Simpsons Illustrated, then a claymation version for Pee-wee’s Playhouse. As the character and world emerged in a whole new way, Craig animated the first episode of Hey Arnold! in his living room, and then pitched it to Nickelodeon.
