Top 10 Hey Arnold Characters


The Top Ten

1 Helga Pataki Helga Pataki Helga Pataki is a character from the 90s Nickelodeon cartoon Hey Arnold created by Craig Bartlett. She's known for being bossy and being a bully to most kids she encounters. However she's secretly loves Arnold despite the fact she acts bitter around him to keep her secret. She will often pull out a more.

She is the best character in the 90's of Nickelodeon, she is do funny and awesome, she can beat up any boy in the neighborhood, she is tough and strong, hilarious and the prettiest girl in the show, and plus she's even better than Arnold. - rockrockmountain

She may be the popular character of the series, she does have a dark past of how is it like being neglected by a family in a favour of an older sibling. Also she probably wants to beat the shins of other people excluding Arnold is the reason why she kept her obsession secret.

Helga is a great character, despite her "angry" exterior. If you've watched the show, you realize why she is so mean. Also, she likes Arnold because he was one of the few people who noticed her.

One of my favorites such an adorable character let alone her voice actress being so romantically beautiful. - Jkthemanwiththeplan

2 Arnold

Arnold is so optimistic, despite his parents being gone. You know he's one of the best characters in this show.

Very nice kid. He gives good advice to people he likes and dislikes. Helga is also a good character

Yeah! Go Arnold! Woo!

Definitely the best kid. optimistic, kind, and emphatic. He should be #1, not the jerk Helga.

This guy is hilarious, it is also the black series, all copied her hairstyle is very Marge Simpson

4 Grandpa "Steely" Phil

"I've got duct tape and I'm not afraid to use it! "

Funniest character on this show, period. Arnold always goes to him for advice. Sometimes, it's good, but most of the time it's just not the kind of advice he was looking for; still makes for a good laugh though, and a lot of times, Arnold's able to make something out of it.

Phil is the man! - Yorkshire2001

5 Phoebe Heyerdah

I just Love Phoebe. She is just so awesome and the Episodes where Phoebe is a major Character are the best.

I don't know why but I always loved Phoebe growing up. She was just the cutest thing ever.

Phoebe is way better than most of the characters in the show and a far better character than Helga

I <3 her

This kid is hilarious. I was gonna vote Arnold, but since this is kinda low, I gave this character some support.

9 Stinky Peterson

"Aw gee! You mean I ain't in the top ten but that Oscar feller is? That really bites! "

Stinky is just the funniest character, he is amazing.

Stinky can be a bit rude at times, but he's still a nice guy so I think he's my favourite.

He looks exactly like me except he has a large nose.

10 Rhonda

Love rhonda, she's beautiful. Like her hair

She may be beautiful but I don't like how snobbish and stuck up she is at all. I don't like how much of a jerk she acts like at all either.

Honestly, she just slays at life.

Rhonda is a stuck up brat - Yorkshire2001

The Contenders

11 Brainy

Loved the gag where Helga would punch him after he'd snuck up behind her.

The Derpy Hooves of 90s cartoons.

12 Oskar Kokoshka

Quote from "Weird Cousin": But he's an idiot! Oskar's one of my favorite characters and has the best laugh! Ehehehehe!

13 Mr. Hyunh

Best tenant of the boarding house. This guy was hilarious and had a lot of depth.

14 Eugene

I love Eugene. He's one of my favorite characters!

I always felt bad for him. - PeeledBanana

He's unlucky and gets hurt in every episode he's hilaripus

15 Lila Sawyer Lila Sawyer Lila Sawyer is a fictional character from the 90s Nickelodeon cartoon Hey Arnold created by Craig Bartlett. She's generally known for being nice and kind to her classmates which disgusts Helga Pataki. She also has a crush on Arnold's cousin Arnie. In the series she's revealed to be poor next to being more.

I hate her. She's so darn annoying. Although I do feel a little bad for her, she's very poor.

16 Patricia "Big Patty" Smith
17 Thaddeus "Curly" Gammelthorpe

How come Curly's only here? He deserves to be WAY higher. He's hilarious to watch, completely insane, and just because he does the worst things, he's redeemed himself before. I especially like when he dumped Rhonda at the end of "Curly's Girl" because he realized what he was putting her through.

18 Ruth P. McDougal
19 Nadine

I like Nadine she's cute and funny I can understand
Why Rhonda is her best friend
