The millennial generation will remember what Arnold - who lived with his grandma and their pet pig in a boarding house - and his pals got up to, but it didn't do as well with younger audiences and the show got pulled.

According to the show's creator, Jim Lang, Nickelodeon aren't keen to revive the show.

However, he did reveal in an interview with the Tunes/Toons podcast that some streaming services are vying to bring back the cartoon for an online audience.

He said: "Netflix, Amazon, Apple were all people that they were going to go out to with the idea of trying to make a season six of Hey Arnold!

"We haven't heard anything yet but we've got our fingers crossed."
