Helga's Locket
Helga has her Arnold locket inscribed with her name - and then has to get it back from Grandpa, who thinks it's an anniversary gift from Grandma
Written by Joseph Purdy
Storyboard Direction by Chris Robertson
Animation Direction by Frank Weiss
Storyboard Artists: Aldin Baroza, Miyuki Hoshikawa

Arnold - Spencer Klein
Helga - Francesca Smith
Grandpa, jeweler - Dan Castellaneta
Grandma - Tress MacNeille
Abner - Craig Bartlett

  • The chain on the locket magically appears when Grandpa has it
  • Helga is afraid that "everybody" will find out how she feels about Arnold...but when Arnold tried to put Grandma's picture into the locket, he was alone; if Helga was going to "confess" to Arnold any time soon, that would have been the perfect opportunity
  • Then again, had Arnold seen the inscription, why couldn't Helga just say that somebody was playing some sort of joke on her by putting something like that inside the locket?

Sidney (the frog) - Craig Bartlett

  • Everybody but Sheena moaned when they realized it was a hygiene film
  • Stinky says "no bout a-doubt it"
  • How did Sid's hat fit inside his diving helmet?
  • For that matter, how does Sid breathe in his "clean suit"? (He's wearing a diving suit, which has air pumped into it)
  • When Sid uses his disinfectant, it has a squeeze trigger, but it sprays a constant spray like an aerosol
  • Sid was the only one wearing shoes in the contest
  • NO FROGS OR PIGS WERE HARMED IN THE MAKING OF THIS FILM - just like Sheena requested at the start of the contest (this is a reference to the "no animals were harmed in the making of this film" message in the credits of pretty much every movie that uses animals)
  • Is Craig Bartlett becoming the next Frank Welker? Craig was credited as both Abner the pig and Sidney the frog
  • ...but he was also credited as Brainy, who didn't "speak"
