I, honestly, thought you were different from the rest. I thought you were going to change. My tears for you, were for nothing. Absolutely nothing. You played me like I was some kind of rag doll, and you lied to me. So have a good life, because I’m over you.
Everyone’s innocent, until proven guilty.
This is Mr. Huynh’s story about his lost daughter he had to give up while living in the Vietnam War. There is no humor, no laughter when he describes what he had to go through, almost as if the person who played Mr. Huynh went through the same thing.
Take a moment and watch this Hey Arnold clip, and think about the cartoons you watch today. Do any of them deal with these kind of real-life situations and stories? Can they portray such a sad story with such emotion as this? This is back when cartoons dealt with more than just trying to entertain people; Hey Arnold took real historical events and portrayed them as people experienced them. Though I didn’t understand it as much when I was a kid, I look back and say, wow, they were dealing with that? That’s some serious stuff for little kids.
this hits the spot
Hey, on the bright side, he does meet his daughter near the end of the episode because Arnold pulled some strings to help Mr. Huynh find her! (:
