Save the Tree - Feb 26th

Post by Annemiek on Fri Feb 26, 2010 9:52 pm

Save the Tree


["Alas, here I am again. Torn between two forces. Arnold's foolish idealism, and my father's unbridled greed. And this time I fear blood is thicker than water. Oh, curse the day I was born a Pataki!"]



WHERE CAN I WATCH THIS EPISODE?
Download: Hey Arnold! Torrent file (Season 1-5 You'll need a torrent client program to download, like Bittorrent, but it's worth it)
Watch Online: http://www.megavideo.com/?v=VAO488IO (I tested it once, but can't guarantee it works for everyone)
Buy: Amazon.com / I-tunes



The questions:


1) Ever had your own treehouse?

2) Don't you just love Grandma's hippy-outfit and attitude XD

["If I hit the lever, I think I can stop it" *totally fails*]
3) Any other ideas on how they could have stopped that thing?

4) Sheena, this episode tells us that she loves nature (or at least Big Pete), she always seemed like the kind of treehugger type of person to me. What do you think of her?



REMINDER: You don't have to just answer the questions! Seriously, SAY ANYTHING YOU WANT. And respond to other people to keep the conversation flowing. Big Grin

Tomorrow:New Teacher (2/27)

NEXT WEEK: Helga's Love Potion (3/5) and Gerald's Secret (3/6)!!!

1) No, but I remember wishing I had one.

2) It suits her. She's donned stranger costumes that's for sure.

3) Arnold definitely earned himself a post on Failblog with that throw. I suppose they could have climbed down really quick and tried to hop onto the bulldozer. They just needed to get on it and hit the brake, right? Then again it was going pretty fast so it's not certain if it could be done in time, or even safely.

4) To me Sheena is... quite distinct for a background character. Her personality is simple and straightforward so it's easy to understand her. She's a nature lover, a health nut, and seen by her peers as a geek.
She's also kind of timid. For example, even though its in accordance with her apparent beliefs, I don't think she'd have helped Arnold and his grandmother save Lockjaw because it would have involved breaking the law. Whereas with Mighty Pete, all she had to do was sit in a treehouse as a form of protest.

1) I never had a treehouse; but my grandma has a HUGE tree in her backyard and for a while, there was a treehouse where all the grandchildren would hang out. It was so much fun hanging out with my cousins on that tree. Today, however, most of the grandchildren have grown up, my grandmother's much older and getting along in her years, and the treehouse is no more. The memories are great, though.

2) I loved Grandma's hippy outfit. She's hilarious!

3) I agree with Nefarious on this. Instead of just sitting up in the treehouse and screaming at it to stop, I would've hopped on that thing! I think it would've sent out a real message if the kids tied themselves to it. I think doing so would've showed that adults tend to underestimate kids and what they're capable of. It also would've proved that kids are willing to fight for what they want.

4) Sheena seems to be a very passive person to me. She's not a doer and isn't someone who takes initiative. She stands in the background a lot, and even seems sort of fragile; it seems as though the littlest things would break her.

1. My sister was prone to concussions and broken arms...as a result, no treehouses for our family.

2. I love *everything* about Gertie. She rocks.

3. None.

4. Sheena always seemed nice to me. I kind of wondered why no one had the issues with her that they did with Lila, since they seem a lot alike. I guess it's because Lila did everything so ....freakishly perfectly, while Sheena had her insecurities and ...I'm trying to think of her having faults...I guess she sometimes went along with class pranks, which I don't think Lila ever did.

What I really like about this episode is that it *does* show that Bob cares about Helga. As much of a blowhard as he can be, as big of a jerk as he sometimes is, he did freak out about Helga being in the tree with the bulldozer coming at her. He's not a perfect dad, but at least he wants to protect her. Humanizing moments almost make up for what he did in "Parent's Day" (...still not quite enough)

Another humanizing moment for Big Bob was the "Quantity Time" episode, where he took Helga to see "Rats", and he and Helga were both able to bond over the fact that they thought the musical was ridiculous. I like those episodes where Bob and Miriam are given some humanity to them instead of just being seen as horrible parents.

But what he did in "Parent's Day"... that was inexcusable.

1) Sadly no. DX But one of my cousins did! Back one or two times when we drove out to visit, he'd take my brother and I to the treehouse he had in a tree behind the house, or another one half done out in the woods on another tree. Pretty cool. :3

2) xD Of course I do! Gertie is fun and cool.

["If I hit the lever, I think I can stop it" *totally fails*]
3) Doi! Climbing down, getting into the truck, and stopping it from there!

4) Sheena...well, she's your average, simple, good-natured background character. She's nice and sweet, a little timid, but I like her all right. ^^ And it's funny how she is also voiced by Francesca Marie Smith! XD It's funny to compare the sweet and timid Sheena to aggressive and yelling Helga! xD

Good episode. 8D

...I liked it when Helga jumped into Arnold's arms. xD

1) I must answer no... because I don't and never did... But I have fantasized!

2) Gertie is a complete lunatic... Which is why I love her!!!

3) Well... He could have MADE the shot. Or he could have found some rope and made it into a lasso so he could lasso the lever and pull it that way. Or he could have had Helga throw the cup instead (She seems like she'd have a better arm). Or he could have just done what everyone else suggested above, and just climbed down and hopped on the thing... but he wouldn't have been able to do it in time, most likely. And plus, where's the fun in doing the thing that makes the most sense? XD

4) Oh yes, I agree with Nintendo on this one. I love comparing Helga and Sheena since they're both voiced by Francesca. It's so fun to do!

But I think Sheena is just... there. She's obviously a health nut ("Phoebe Skips"), and she's real into nature (Somewhat demonstrated in this episode) but hates violence. She just seems like the average hippie chick to me. XD

Oh YEAH! I loved it when Helga jumped into Arnold's arms! And he totally held her!!! YAY! I loved that she did it on purpose! Helga is so smart!

Yay Big Grin Love Big Grin Yay

Oh yes he did, Singr! >w< Yes he did! Helga, you so smart! She also jumped into his arms in "Wheezin' Ed". >w< And he held her there, too! OH YEAH, BABY!!!

"Aaahhh!!! Hold me, Arnold! I'm scared!"
"Helga...we're walking to your house in the middle of the day...what are you afraid of?"

XD YES! That's too funny!

Continuation:

"Uh... That tree! It looks mighty shady to me..."
"Helga... it's just a tree."
"A shady one that going to hurt us."
"All trees are shady, Helga."
"I didn't mean like that! Now just hold me like a good little football head!"

XD

I love how she just sort of stares at him, and then the look at her face is sort of "We might die anyways, screw it, I'm going for it!"

Singr...LOL!! xD

Okay, more continuation! 8D

"Um...okay? Why?"
"Because I said so, doi!"
"Well, yeah, but why?"
"Don't ask questions! Just do as I say!"

Tsk, tsk, Helga...didn't we learn from our rewatch of "New Teacher" that there has to be a real reason when "why" is asked?

@Perhapsormaybe: Yeah, I love that. I can totally see her thinking...

"Screw it! If I'm gonna die, I want it to be in my beloved's arms!" XD

@NintendoGal55: XD Helga rocks soooo hard! And you just made me laugh to the point of having my head just fall right off. Luckily it screws back in pretty good... so no ambulance required. XD

MORE!

"Whatever you say, Helga... but... why?"
"What did I just say?! Don't ask questions and hold me, football head! I'm scared!"
"Well... I'm sorry you're so scared of trees... but... do you really want me to just carry you home?"
"DOI...! I'm so scared!"
"Uh... okay..."

XD

Arnold's gotta be pretty strong...given her height and build, it's likely Helga's a bit (not much) heavier than he is, but he always catches her when she jumps into his arms.

Agreed!

"I'm gonna die in Arnold's arms! ...Believe it!"
xD


LOL!!!!!!!! ROFL!!! xD Singr, you're too much. Glad to make you laugh! 8D I'm laughing too!

Okay, MORE!

"Good, I'm glad we're on the same page."
"Really, Helga, can you just tell me why?"
"I already said, doi!"
"You're not afraid of trees, Helga. If it were rats, well, okay, I understand that."
"Oh...did I say trees? Darn! I meant rats! Yeah! I...saw rats in the street and got so scared!"
"Whatever you say, Helga."

XD They went to her house and made out like wild animals.

*Cricket chirp*

Okay, that's just me with my sicky fantasies. xD 'Cause I'm weird like that. 8D Whoo!

No, Arnold took her home, held her hand for a moment, making her swoon, and bids her goodbye and leaves.

...Before Helga yanks him into her house by his sweater and-there I go again.

xD I'm just gonna stop now. X3

Aww, don't stop! *shifty eyes*...I'm not a perve, I just really like that pairing! The poor kids have been 9 since like...1996...technically they should be legal age by now. (I know, I know...silly Perhapsormaybe, cartoons do not work that way!)

ROFL!!!!!! HOLY JUNK!!!! THAT"S TOO FUNNY!!!!

Ya know, they may be nine... but they all really do act like freakin' sixteen year olds. And they do mature more throughout the course of the show... just not on the outside. XD

Continuing:

Bob: KEEP IT DOWN UP THERE!
Helga: S-S-SHUT UP, BOB!
