Who are your favorite characters of the show?

Post by Jfgoofy on Sat Apr 02, 2016 6:25 pm

Just a simple question and I'm actually kind of curious and interested in who are your favorite characters (I'm probably going to expect most of us are going to have our favorite characters being Arnold and Helga, which I can understand, and they are 2 of my favorites). I mentioned my favorite characters already in my introduction post and I know Leskuh's because of her art, so to everyone else who are your favorite characters?

Obviously Arnold and Helga, but I like Rhonda, Phoebe, Gerald, Grandpa, and Grandma. I know she's kind of a dream world character but I also like Hilda, even though she pops up in only one episode...I like to think she does actually exist though.

I hope she actually exists within the Hey Arnold! universe.

My shameful favorites are all the garbage bullies because I'm terrible. Helga, Harold and Wolfgang. GARBAGE.

Arnold, Helga, Gerald, Phoebe and then Mr Simmons. I like everyone else, but they're my faves.

I think it's pretty obvious who the best character is. Someone get a mod in here to close up this thread. Debate over! There's a CLEAR winner here.

That is too difficult a question, because every time I say "Oh, I love you [character's name]!", a different scene pops up where a different character shines and I'll just say "Oh, I love you [different character's name]!"

But the ones that come to my head first are Helga, Arnold, Gerald, Phoebe, Grandpa, and Grandma.....but I love everyone else too!!

I agree with AibouFTW, it's hard to pick sometimes because I love them all and they shine at different times and differently.  So it kind of depends on my mood and the episode.

But Arnold is definitely my favorite with Helga as a very close second.  And after them I really like Sid, he makes me laugh every time. Same with Eugene.  But like I said, I kind of switch around a lot haha!

I like pretty much everyone (they're all so multifaceted, which is one of the reasons why I love HA! so much) but my personally favorites are Gerald, Helga, Sid, and Big Gino.

I love how grounded Gerald is and his taste in 70s music and shows (I figured he's an old soul like Arnold. Must be one of the reasons they get along so well!).

I love how complex Helga is: intellgent, funny, and heartbreaking, all rolled up into one.

Sid, oh man Sid. I really can relate to him because I was a lot like him when I was a kid: paranoid, into the paranormal, and scared of a lot of things. I also have empathy for him because of his upbringing. Sid can be a jerk sometimes, but I think his family not having a lot of money is a major driving force for his poor decisions.

Sid also makes me laugh, especially in "Sid's Revenge". His screams always bring me tears of laughter (sorry buddy). :') I got a soft spot for cowards.  

Big Gino because yeah, sometimes I like characters who are unforgiving jerks (and are snappy dressers, not to mention all the Godfather references). I would have loved to have seen him as a reoccurring bully like Wolfgang but he really did steal the spotlight in his episode, so at least there's that.

Sid really is a great character. Yeah he lies and cheats a lot but he's actually really sweet and just wants to be loved. u_u

Arnold is my absolute favorite character. If he were real (and grown) I'd be in soooo much trouble. Arnold's Love, you totally know what I mean right? I love every aspect of his character. I know that he is not the center of attention on every episode, but to me, if Arnold were not who/how he is the show would be hollow. That said Arnold may be the framework and foundation of the show, but Helga makes the show complete.

I'd have to say that like most everyone I love love love Helga. Hear that, Helga? I would totally adopt her if I could. Of course, it'd have to be okay with her and everything. Maybe I could be like an honorary Aunt. I'd take her to visit my family all over the world and tell her how smart she is everyday. We'd people watch and make fun of all the dorks we see and enjoy each others snarky wittiness. Basically give her all the attention and affection she deserves. She has my heart.

I also love Eugene, and can relate to him a lot too in that I refuse to be anything but optimistic a majority of the time in spite of negative circumstances. My husband frequently tells me my optimism is annoying. (I tell him to shove it, and then burst into song just to rub it in. *smirks* )

Stinky is another favorite because he is just so endearing.  
Sid tugs at my heartstrings, and I can agree with what rainbowraider said about what makes him tick.
Lila, because she is observant and quick, but still manages to be kind.
Also, for some reason Brainy. Don't know why. Have not stopped to think about it to hard, but I love him.
And, Spectrumbunny, I too think that Alan is one sexy boy. Woo, that boy would have brought havoc in my life. Wink MMM mmm.

Also I have a new found appreciation for Wolfgang after reading some of Leskuh's fanfic. I think I have to agree with her insightful take on his personality.

Wow, TIF, I really like the way you describe Arnold and Helga! That's why they're not only good for each other, but good for the show as well.

Haha, it's like you know my inner thoughts or something. I love Arnold. :-) He's my cartoon crush. But I also think I like him best because I relate to him the most. Like I legitimately was just like him in high school and always got teased and bullied for being a goody-two-shoes who always tried to help everyone and looked on the bright side. That episode "Deconstructing Arnold"...I know it's not a fan favorite, but I relate to it on such an emotional level having gone through similar things in my childhood/teenage years, so I really like it. I think that's why in my fanfiction he's the only character I don't have to work hard to keep in character and why I choose to write from his POV most times.

I love what you said about Arnold and Helga making the show together. THat's my feelings exactly...I could just never put it into words. I'm applauding your explanation!
