Phoebe Heyerdahl | Hey Arnold! | APAHM | Nickelodeon Animation

Celebrating Asian Pacific American Heritage Month with one of the first Asian-American characters in Nicktoons history, Phoebe Heyerdahl from Hey Arnold! Nickelodeon Animation partnered with the Nick Archives team to show a behind-the-scenes look of the development of her character (voiced by Anndi McAfee), who debuted in the first episode, “Downtown as Fruits,” on October 7th, 1996. In the words of creator Craig Bartlett, “I just thought it was time for an ethnically/gender diverse cast on a cartoon show. I knew I wanted to set it in the big city, and my experience living in LA in particular was like that: a big gumbo of different cultures, all living side by side.”

Watch all your '90s Nickelodeon favorites on NickSplat, your late-night destination for your favorite childhood Nickelodeon cartoons and live-action shows! NickSplat doesn't question football-shaped heads, but embrace them - along with Reptar bars, a Big Ear of Corn, orange soda, and even slime for Pete (and Pete's) sake.
