I loved it except one thing. The Green Eyed People's entire adult population was in a sleeping coma for a decade. Yet the children remained unaffected and manged themselves from diapers to be healthy and run a village? Major plot hole!

I saw it today; I liked it a lot. The references to the original series were very well done.

However, I hope they just leave things where they are. A continued reboot at this point could be too much of a good thing.

I saw it and I really liked it. I'd definitely like to see a continuation series, but if it dosen't happen I'm satisfied with what we got. Thanks, Nickelodeon. You may have botched things up originally, but good on you for letting this non-toyetic/merchandise driven series get some kind of closure. I'm really looking forward to the Rocko's Modern Life movie next year.

I don't think every adult got affected all at once. I think the idea was that it slowly affected the tribe for years to the point only the children remained, though why the children were unaffected is a good point.

Personally, I couldn't help but wonder how Arnold's parents survived for over a decade. Even if the Sleeping slowed down their metabolism I don't think they could survive for years without food. Did the tribe force feed them and cleanup their waste during their slumber? Shouldn't their muscles be too weak from disuse to even allow them to walk? Then again the movie also had Eugene bloat up into a bouncy ball in a matter of seconds from an allergy so maybe I'm thinking about this way more then I should.

That's great. Sounds like the rugrats movie could be interesting. Now all we need is Aaahhhh Real Monsters the movie!

If there is a season 6, hope some of it takes place before TJM. I'm curious of how these character dynamics changed.

Craig's maintained that season six is post-Jungle Movie, though he has said he would love to make episodes set during the film to cover the ground he hadn't been given the time to explore.

I would hope Bob changes with the times and sells iPhones and Androids. Not even in fiction could he survive in business.

Arnold's crush on Lilia being transitioned away and Helga opening up instead continuing to put on a show.

We did not get much with Stinky and Sid. Interesting to see how they developed.

I still do not understand the skipping over 5th grade. It would have made more sense to have been the last day of 4th grade. No way the whole class would have stayed the same and had the same teacher.

Odd having Arnold's parents living in the boarding house. I thought they would have moved somewhere in the same neighborhood. What are their jobs exactly, humanitarians sure, but who do they work for?

Arnold stopped crushing on Lila ages ago in the series, it's been indicated several times he himself was always in love with Helga anyway.

I never saw the crushing on Lila ending or liking Helga back. I do remember a late episode, April Fool's Day he seemed to be flirting with her out of the blue. Interesting developments coming up!

When it states 13 half hour episodes does that mean 22 minute segments orv26 11 minute segments?

Here's what I don't get. In the actual series, Bob sold beepers and phones and occasionally other electronics (he was testing out equipment in Roughing It to sell later). The beepers were primary while the phones were secondary. All three have been shown with cellphones (Bob, Miriam, Helga). We also know that Bob isn't stupid and is all about making money. He's a businessman. It felt very convoluted that Bob didn't switch to cellphones fully and other electronics.

It's rare, but not impossible to get the same teacher again. Them having Simmons for 6th grade I feel would be pushing it, though. Having the same classmates is more common.

They're probably still working out the legalities of them being back in the states after being missing for so long. Stella is a doctor and I'm sure she would need to go through a lot of junk to update her license. Both probably haven't found jobs yet, so them living in the boarding house makes sense. Seems finding work would be slightly difficult given the ten-year gap.

Timberly Loves Arnold is when his crush on Lila officially ends, even though I figured it did in Arnold visits Arnie. Timberly Loves Arnold and Eugene, Eugene takes place before the first movie. He was paired with Lila for Eugene, Eugene for their school play and Arnold didn't care one way or the other....Helga did, though, but to be fair, she wasn't in Timberly Loves Arnold. Craig said he wanted Arnold to be done with the Lila stuff by the time of the first movie.

April Fool's Day takes place after the first film. He was legit flirting with Helga during their tango. Craig also said that Arnold at that point was starting to consciously fall for Helga. All throughout the series, it was hinted that Arnold deep down liked Helga. For Married, Arnold looked like he was in extreme denial. Arnold isn't a superstitious character, but he did that love origami test 110 times.

I still feel that Arnold's Valentine is a great subconscious hint that he's always liked Helga in some way. I know I've probably mentioned it, but Helga as Cecile did ask Arnold if there was a girl he liked that was smart, funny, and beautiful and Arnold brought up Helga before backtracking and saying that she bugged him sometimes. Something I never caught, though, or thought about, was that he was on a date with Ruth...his current crush at the time. It's surprising that he didn't say her.

"Married" is what convinced me Arnold loved Helga. Helga in the nightmare is just about to confess she loved him when he woke up. He then tells Gerald on the bus being married to her would be ok.
