So the best Nickelodeon TV show ever, also known as Hey Arnold!, is finally returning to our lives this Friday for Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie.

Premiering November 24 at 7 p.m. — the day after Thanksgiving — the movie is a sequel to the 2002 Hey Arnold!: The Movie and is supposed to solve the final questions left unanswered from the beloved TV series.

You'll remember our favorite lovelorn P.S. 118 student for her unforgettable Arnold shrine, a serious commitment to pink, and of course, her iconic unibrow.


And you've probably wondered at some point, I wonder if there's a story behind that badass 'brow?


According to an interview by the Spanish language news site El Estímulo (link in Spanish) with Hey Arnold!'s creator, Craig Bartlett, Helga's appearance was apparently straight up inspired by Frida Kahlo's childhood pictures.

Bartlett even posted this pic on his Instagram earlier this summer with the hashtag #HelgaPataki.
