There's a cheeky filthy scene in 'Hey Arnold!' that we all missed
Hey Arnold! was one of the best shows on TV.
It had possibly the grooviest theme tune of all kids' shows, a great range of different characters, and the illustrations were so wacky and weird.
The Nickelodeon animated series featured the daily life of nine-year-old Arnold. He spent his time living in the city, hanging out with his group of chums, all while avoiding the unibrowed neighbourhood bully (who actually secretly loved him), Helga.
But if you want all your childhood illusions of the hit show shattered, then please read on.
One eagle-eyed viewer has spotted a hilarious NSFW scene in the '90s show, and we're not sure if it is an innocent mistake or a cheeky animator taking the piss - but it definitely looks like a certain... type of job to us.
You wouldn't be alone in that reaction.

At least the clip prompted some enlightened adult conversation:
For what it's worth, The AV Club have attempted to get to the bottom of things and got in touch with Hey Arnold! creator Craig Bartlett who says that we all just have dirty minds for seeing something so filthy behind the main action.
Unfortunately, Bartlett has to be a big party pooper and leave us all feeling like assholes for trying to make him the butt of the joke.
"That’s Uncle Chuck eating a turkey with his hands," he said. "I assure you it was never intended to be what the guy tweeted it was."
Sounds like a load of crap to us.
