Not only did it receive a lot of hate, but both Harry Shearer (Seymour Skinner's voice actor) and Matt Groening (Simpsons creator) have disliked this episode. It also ruined Seymour by calling him the impostor of a character that never even appeared outside of the episode, and the way they got rid of him was ridiculous. - Swellow
I agree, that was by far the Number One worst episode of Hey Arnold, even his own grandfather finds it amusing that he's humiliating himself, which is way out of character for him. The only good thing about this episode, however, was that Gerald was never there when Arnold subjected him to humiliation to gain Iggy's forgiveness, so this shows that he will likely laugh at other people's misfortunes but not at Arnold's.
This episode got pulled off the air due to the 9/11 attack. One thing that cause this is one thing: the magazine for the trip to New York for 9 bucks along with the twin towers on the side. - MrEmerik2000
This episode is our first real introduction to a reverse trap called Itsuki who (spoilers) later becomes Cure Sunshine. It tackles the topic of gender politics. Due to this, I imagine this episode being very controversial in some countries. - PerfectImpulseX

This one wasn't inappropriate. Besides, kids need some darker episodes. - LordDovahkiin
What happened that was so bad?
Banned after one Japanese character commits suicide near the end. - egnomac
This episode shows about not being perfect and suicide, but the good news is that it has a happy ending.
It's about a duck who tries to commit suicide the entire episode

This episode depicts unemployment. According to SpongeBob's best friend Patrick, he thinks that being unemployed is a good thing and calls it "fun-employment."
SpongeBob: "Unemployment maybe fun for you..."
Why Mr. Krabs fired Spongebob for a nickel? It doesn't makes an sense. Also, this episode got controversy by teaching kids about unemployment, literally. - MrEmerik2000
This isn't controversial at all! - Turkeyasylum
Kids still shouldn't watch it.
Not controversial at all. The toenail scene creeps peoples a lot. There's a filler moment of Squilliam showing off his house. - MrEmerik2000
The toenail scene is not controversial just disturbing
It Was Just One Toenail Scene. Geez. - kcianciulliV 1 Comment
