Hey Arnold! was a Nickelodeon cartoon created by Craig Bartlett that aired from 1996 to 2004. As with most shows, a pilot was created in 1994 for the creator to show to the people running the network. While it was never aired on TV, it was shown before the theatrical release of Nickelodeon's first live-action movie, Harriet the Spy. When the movie came out on VHS, however, the pilot was not included with it, and while it was "remade" into the season one episode "24 Hours to Live", the original version went unreleased to the public. However, on April 22, 2012, the pilot was finally uploaded to YouTube.
On November 20, 2018, Nickelodeon & Paramount released an 18-disc DVD set called Hey Arnold: The Ultimate Collection containing 18 discs which contains all the episodes of the main series as well as the two films. The pilot episode was featured in this set.
