Sunset Arms, or around his friends at his school, P.S.
118.Arnold's adventurous parents, anthropologist Miles and
biologist/physician Stella, were doing missions in the
jungle of San Lorenzo when they disappeared.

Helga Pataki. Unbeknownst to Arnold, Helga is secretly in
love with him, though to keep these feelings secret she
verbally abuses Arnold so he will never come to that
conclusion. As such, Arnold has a more or less, tolerant
feeling towards Helga. He states throughout the series that
even though she acts bad she really is a good person.
Arnold's best friend is Gerald Johansen, whose relationship
dates as far back as pre-school. The pair have a distinct

the show back to the top of the ratings, and becomes Japan's
biggest star in anime history.
Segments of LilyMu are seen at the

similar to the mix of styles in Who Framed Roger Rabbit.
While most characters on the show are drawn in an
anime-inspired style such as using thin outlines, big,
detailed eyes, small mouths, and all ten fingers, Mikey and
all other American characters is drawn in a retro-inspired
American cartoon manner where using thicker outlines, single
