Top 10 Hey Arnold Characters

The Top Ten
1 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 locket and say a monologue of her love for him in a place where no one will hear her or sometimes in public. When this happens she usually hears breathing and punches Brainy a lot.

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.

I wouldn't say she's the top best in Hey Arnold, but she's absolutely the most interesting. She's one of the reasons why I loved watching this show, she made it interesting and gave the franchise a reason to make The Jungle Movie! (Besides Arnold's lost parents obviously)

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.

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.

2 Arnold Shortman

Arnold is by far the best character on the show. He's the most sincere, sweet, caring, and honest person in the show. He deserves the world and nothing but love and respect.

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

I love Arnold! His sweetness and care for people is what I love the most about him! I want a friend just like him!

I like his personality. He's a nice and caring person in the show. Also, I like how he noticed Helga first.

3 Gerald Johanssen

He is the coolest guy on the series! I would love to have a friend like Gerald! He's helpful, dependable, cool, and really nice!

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

4 Phoebe Heyerdahl

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.

She is my favourite character.

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

5 Phil Shortman

"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.

Gramps is the funniest

Phil is the man!

6 Gertrude Shortman
7 Rhonda Wellington Lloyd Rhonda Wellington Lloyd is a fictional character from the 90s Nickelodeon cartoon Hey Arnold. She's generally known for being rich and stuck up. Along with that she cares very deeply about fashion. Her best friend is Nadine. She generally hates people that are "geeks" and refuses to be around them or to hang out with them.

She's unlikable all because of the writers of Hey Arnold episodes so they just had to portray her as a snobbish jerk.

Love rhonda, she's beautiful. Like her hair

Honestly, she just slays at life.

8 Harold Berman

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

9 Sidney

Sid has always been my favorate hey Arnold character since being a fan of the show in the 90s still a fan of Sid today I think he deserve more credit and should be further up this list preferably swapped with Rhonda she should be here at number 9.. I have always liked Sid he's one of the few characters who stood out to me his character design and his personality was one that stood out.. I actually think it's clever that the creators made Sid a fan of the band the beatles the Beatles boots Sid wears are the style of boots the actual band wore.. but in the color white instead of black so yeah that's cool

Sid should be top 5 why do the main characters get top spot? what about the side characters ? Sid has many qualities he's on edge like tweek a total worrier.. he has OCD he's cheeky a laugh and is just a ball of energy.. people hate him they see him as a jerk for his actions but he does show compassion for the wrongs he does which makes him impulsive.. it's clear he wants acceptance is embarrassed of his background being poor he is easily led by his peers Sid isn't a bad lad he's vulnerable.. he has always been my favourate character in the show. I find it a tad boring when Sid isn't present he brings more energy into it and his character design is spot on he's a well developed character so deserves to be higher up Sid and Arnold are my two favourate characters

My favorite type of episodes are the ones where Sid is the main character.

His paranoid tendencies are hilarious to watch.

10 Stinky Peterson

Stinky's book report in Stinky's Pumpkin:
"This dang book was a real long one and it was really hard! "

Other than Grandpa, definitely the funniest character on the show.

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

"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.

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 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 a country/ rural girl. Most of the boys in her class admire her.

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

She's relatable in that it's common for people to resent the success of those better than them

13 Oskar Kokoshka

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

14 Eugene Horowitz

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

He's such a sweet guy! He deserves to have loads of friends! No matter what short comings befall him, he never blames anyone for it! While aronold sees accidents as his fault, eugene never blames him & sees aronald as a nice giving guy & enjoys & appreciates what he does for & with him dispite getting hurt all the time! He's so sweet, & doesn't deserve to be so unlucky as he is! 😢

I always felt bad for him.

So unlucky but nice

15 Ruth P. McDougal
16 Sheena Annapotato

She's the tallest girl and student in her class but despite not ever having an episode involving her she's an extremely gentle, sensitive and caring girl.

Her voice is so high pitched and cute. She's literally voiced by the same girl who plays Helga.

A gentle kind character

17 Mr. Hyunh

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

18 Patricia "Big Patty" Smith
19 Rex Smythe-Higgins
20 The Pigeon Man
21 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.

The kid is off his head

Should be top 10

22 Suzie Kokoshka
23 Stella Shortman
24 Tish Wittenberg

The coach's fiery wife

25 Stoop Kid
