Season 3 Episode 18a - Crabby Author

When I originally watched Crabby Author, I thought, “broken person who Arnold helps find a spark of happiness in them.” When I rewatched it, I thought, “How does Aggie eat? Where does she get her food? How does she pay for it?” And the answer was obvious: Earl. He’s the only one who knew where she was, and she’s been on Elk Island for almost a decade, so she has to have some sort of way to get residuals from her books and to, well, get food. That’s what spawned this comic. I’m sure that, if it was Earl that’s been bringing her food for almost a decade, whatever drove her to shut herself away from the world would become a topic of conversation between the two after a while. Add alcohol, and who knows how much she’ll reveal.

“The movie is very meta & answers pretty much every fan question I could think of” - Craig 

“The fact that so many employees currently at Nick are 90s Nickelodeon kids was crucial in bringing Arnold back for the Jungle Movie” -Craig 

“It’s a long fulfilled dream of mine to finally bring you this movie.”
- Craig Bartlett, creator of Hey Arnold (1996-2004; 2017)
