ARNOLD (and family)

Season 1

Season 3

Arnold is just your typical nine-year-old fourth-grade (must be close to his 10th birthday then) kid - "Everykid", as it were. Well, he would be if "Everykid" had a football-shaped head, an ever-present hat, and an attic room with skylight and remote-controlled furniture. After Arnold's parents left him with his grandparents before leaving (and never being seen again), Arnold lives in their boarding house ("No Kids - Pets OK"). Okay, he's also a little more laid back and enjoys jazz a little more than your typical fourth-grader, too.  Arnold is named for his mother's father.
There are a few questions about Arnold that remain unanswered:

  • What's his last name? (Let me guess - "the same as Rocko's" (on Rocko's Modern Life); even his bus pass and his school records say just "Arnold")
  • How did he get all of the stuff in his room?
  • And how does such a small hat stay on such a large head, even when he dives into a pool with it?

However, some things are known (from "Married"): his favorite number is five, his favorite color is blue, he plays the harmonica, and he was born on the 7th day of some month.

There was only one story where Arnold did not have a speaking part: "Ms. Perfect".

Grandpa (Phil)

Season 1

 
Arnold's grandfather (and Miles's father) Phil runs the Sunset Arms boarding house, assuming he can get the boarders to pay the rent, which is no guarantee when you remember that, with the possible exception of Mr. Smith, none of these people apparently make enough money to be able to live anywhere where they have their own bathroom!  In accordance with the unwritten "everybody in the boarding house has to have some sort of musical talent" policy, Grandpa plays the drums (in the movie, at Blockapalooza).

Grandma (Gertrude / "Pookie")

Season 1

 
Grandma is almost never quite sure where she is; it's not out of place for her to be in jungle fatigues "hunting" mosquitoes. Her choice for an appropriate song at a Christmas party: "Yankee Doodle Dandy", and according to her, it's just not Thanksgiving without fireworks.  The one time she's "sane" is when everyone else is going insane during a heat wave. On the other hand, she's pretty good behind that piano, not to mention in the kitchen, and she does have quite a few other talents, even if she has quite a few personalities to go with them.

Abner

Abner is Arnold's pet pig.  He was a wedding gift to Arnold's parents from the "green-eyed people" they helped save, even though Grandpa Phil wanted to barbecue him on the spot.  Abner's best talent seems to be digging out truffles.

Chester

Chester is one of Arnold's pet pigeons (he has a couple of others, named Fester and Lester).  Arnold tries to train him to deliver messages, but Chester is about as good at it as Abner is at tracking...

Voice: Craig Bartlett

Mitzi

Mitzi is Grandpa's twin sister (she's older by six minutes).  She and Grandpa stopped talking to each other when their pet dog died - in 1927.

Voice: Phyllis Diller
Grandpa's Sister


Cousin Arnie

Season 4

 
"Hey." Arnie is Arnold's cousin (just which cousin is never specified).  Arnie is a little werid; his hobbies seem to be counting things, reading ingredient labels, plain-flavored gum, and collecting lint.  Nobody seems to like him - except for Lila, who has fallen in love with his, uh, "charms", and his new girlfriend at home, Hilda (who bears a striking resemblance to Helga).

Voice: Grant Hoover

Weird Cousin


Miles (Arnold's Father)

Miles (Phil's only child) was a scientist/doctor who visited remote parts of the world to help people who didn't have access to medical help. He didn't have much of a love life, as he felt that no woman would put up with all of the travel he had to go through, until he met someone who not only put up with travel but did quite a bit of it herself - a doctor/botanist named Stella. However, two or three years after his son Arnold was born, they had to fly one more mission - and they haven't been heard from since.

Stella (Arnold's Mother)

Stella was a botanist/doctor who happened to be in San Lorenzo (as part of an archeology expedition, apparently) when Miles literally fell into her life.  See the entry for Arnold's father for information on what happened next.
Stella's father is named Arnold - it's not exactly a coincidence, as that's who she named Arnold after.

Grandpa's Father

Grandpa's father ran the Sunset Arms "in the old days".

Voice: Dan Castellaneta

Grandpa's father also speaks in "Sally's Comet", but there was no credit given
 


Grandpa's Grandfather

"That's the trouble with our society - no work ethic!"  That's just how Grandpa's grandfather taught his grandson, just as Grandpa passed it down to Arnold...
