Tying Up Loose Ends 1 by limey404 Tying Up Loose Ends 1 by limey404
AW YEAH. WARNING. super big file... cause i said so


A Hey Arnold comic. A Hey Arnold comic about Helga and Arnold gettin together. YESSSSSSSS best idea ever. So here's the backstory on this one: since dumb old nick never made the jungle movie (BASTARDS) in which our favorite football head was supposed to finally find his mommy and daddy and FINALLYYY hook up with Helga, i'm makin my own ending, goddammit! you know what they say... if you want somethin done do it your frickin self! kinda the same reason why i made first date... I wanna know what the frick happens next yo!!

ANYWAYS. Yeah the backstory. In the Jungle Movie in my head, Helga plays a HUGE role in finding Arnold's parents... just like how she always plays a huge role in arnold's major dilemmas hehe. Also, Arnold kisses Helga in the movie, but they get interrupted by Gerald and never actually get to sort out shit in the "feelings" department... then they all go back to Hillwood City (Arnold doesn't stay in San Lorenzo in my head version!) and he's busy spending time with his new rents (completely understandable) but Helga's taking the period of silence as a rejection. YEAH that's about it.

basically this comic is how i picture arnold and helga sealin the relationship deal. short sweet and to the point!

I gotta say... writing one of Helga's psycho poetic speeches was hella fun. haha obsessive people are funny. Yeah, it's a lot of dialogue, but Helga G. Pataki writes a lot and talks a lot, so it was completely unavoidable! i love making characters in character! muaha!

wow i can't believe i had that much to say. what a n00b. traha yeah this baby will be 6 pages, next one should be up in a couple of days! i'm havin wayyyy too much fun with this 8)

PS: I dedicate this little comic to all the cool Hey Arnold fans that still love HA! and were left hangin by nickelodeon! those guys are the shittt man.

and major love to craig bartlett for inventing bitchin characters.

FORWARD MOTHERS TO page 2: [link]

THANK YOU SO MUCH. I don't speak english vey well (I'm from Chile) and I know this was published a long time ago, but thank you so much for putting your drawing talent to make comics and drawings of hey arnold. Hey arnold was a big part of my childhood, so you gave us, fans, a closure, an ending; your characters are incredibly real and similar to the ones on the show, you're amazing. 
I know this drawings have gone really famous so I really hope someone from nick or the creators have contacted you haha. Muchos saludos: Paula

Growing up, I didn't have a tv, so I couldn't watch these kinds of things.

It looks good thought.

I swear that made me cry because that is what i want to tell the guy i liked.
TheRealForlong Featured By Owner May 1, 2014
Well, you sure know how to write Helga.  A scene like this wouldn't be out of place in the show.  All it needs is Brainy breathing heavily and interrupting her.
SpyPhoenix44 Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2014  Hobbyist Writer

I kinda really want you to direct the movie now! Like fanmade or something. At least we'd know shit'd get done!

Sunny-Scribble Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
exactly! i agree!
SoBoredd Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2013
I found you! HAHAHAHA -cough- Sorry. It's just that today I said to myself 'I am feeling a bit nostalgic today, hmm. I should go watch some 'Hey Arnold!'', and then I went downstairs, turned my Computer on and searched for it. After some episodes I said 'Hmm, what was that movie from HA!? The one with Arnold's parents on it' So I searched for that one too. Just for it to come up as 'Save Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie!' And I was like 'The heck? Didn't it come out already? I remember it' So I browsed (?) for it everywhere. Until I gave up and decided to watch some 'HxA' even if they (at first) were just drawings. And then I found your account! After than it all came on me like a bunch of bricks. It wasn't the movie!! Those were your amazing drawings trying to confuse me! Haha! But I am glad it was like that, otherwise I wouldn't be able to find you again. (Jesus, talk about corny and long xD)

This is beautiful! And Helga's monologe is the best!! :D It was always my favourite part of the cartoon. :)

Am I the only one who keeps relating HA! to anime? Like seriously, Helga is SO tsundere and moe!! I love this :-) And btw, I think it's amazing that you kept the exact same art style as the cartoon...Talent! <3

You're a troll right? Because this was posted over two years ago, plus you only have one page up, while she has the rest.

angeldemonpinkpup Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2012
Also I agree with LilJunnie, I did the same thing :)
angeldemonpinkpup Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2012
So beautiful and sad!! They should have made the movie, but at least we have our imaginations to make our own endings....although I'm pretty sure all our endings are the same. He finds his parents, falls in love with/or confesses love he already has to Helga and they live happily ever after..oh who am I kidding?! I WANT A MOVIE, DAMN IT!!!!
LilJunnie Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2012
Totally read it in her voice.
BobDoesTheArt Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I so want you to make a comic about them finding his parents now....
DarbyLucy Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I totally agree with you! I think it is unfair when those bastards that make great stuff (like Hey Arnold! or Avatar: TLA) just skip over what happens next thinking that fans don't care. WE CARE A LOT DAMN IT!! That's why I'm gonna make an Avatar fanfiction soon that goes into details that we as fans will never see in episodes of Legend of Korra or those really short comics. I hate when that kind of stuff happens. And it seems to happen quite frequently...

I love that you are writing comics and making fanart of Hey Arnold! stuff for what happens after the Jungle Movie. (That never existed. :() I think it's a great idea, and that you should continue. :D

Anyway, I also wanted to tell you that your art is TOTALLY FRIKKIN AWESOME!!! I love Avatar and Hey Arnold! and you have a perfect balance of fanart from both those shows. :D Your gallery is like Heaven. XD Great great job!! Keep it up please! :)

Thank you, thank you very much, through these pages I finally got an ending for Arnold and Helga in my head, I was never at peace with the series not ending, but your almost identical style and knowledge on the characters helped a lot in it. Great Work!

I still love HEY ARNOLD :´( I understand you and I love your work :)
Handymarco2010 Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
that is really really good. Your detail to the show is practically 100% not only to the design and the look of the show but to the actual dialog as well cause A lot of people come up with these and I think to myself the character wouldn't say anything like that..... but You actually nailed it down good and it is 100% believable and I think you should actually come out with the comic series of the jungle movie you could pull it off your that good....that being said good job
Iubita Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
I actually HEARD the music that always plays during Helga's soliloquies start up as she pulled the locket out. That was amazing! :D

I know I hate Nickelodeon for leaving billions and billions of children cliff-hanging it just isn't right! I love the comic it's like watching tv! hahaha :)
HAFanForever Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2010  Hobbyist Writer
I know it isn't fair! *pouts* We deserved to see the real ending to the show, and I still Arnold would have found his parents in TJM. I mean, what happier way to end the series than him reuniting with them (and hooking up with Helga)?

I love this bit here, I really think she captured Helga's personality well, and that monolgue is right on target. I feel so sorry for her in the last panel...She probably think that his confession was also just in "the heat of the moment" and he wants to take it back, just like with hers. Poor baby!
BlueJewls Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2010
Aww I know it's just sad how she feels like she's regretting everything. I know I just hate Nickelodeon for doing that! I haven't watched Nickelodeon in a long time when I found out about TJM.
