3. Are there any extras?
Nope, lol. ^^; (But maybe if we ask nicely, Nick will put them in future volumes, or include a whole bunch of them on a separate DVD.)

4. Are the episodes in production order?
No, I believe they are in the order that they aired (in the U.S.)... See below for the order...

6. What did it play on?
It plays on my Playstation 2 (but it seems to skip during the lightning parts/scenes-- if that's your only DVD player, you might not want to get it, unless you just don't mind the skippage/slippage XD).
It works perfectly fine in my other DVD players tho: An HP Pavilion dv9700 Laptop/Notebook PC (which is a DVD+RW and runs on Windows Vista), my desktop downstairs (which is a Dell 9100, CD/DVD-R and runs on Windows XP)...

This is an Amazon exclusive and won't be sold in stores. Amazon worked out a deal with nickelodeon to "Burn on demand" meaning upon receiving an order that Amazon will create the dvd and insert then ship it to the buyer...

I've been waiting a long time for hey Arnold episodes on dvd, so heres another reason to luv Amazon!

Hey Arnold is a Nickelodeon cartoon series that originally ran for five seasons from 1996 to 2004. This DVD box set from Shout Factory contains the first 20 episodes of the series.

The series was created by Craig Bartlett and depicts the life of title character Arnold and his interactions with his quirky classmates and bizarre neighbors in the large nameless city in which they all live. It is well known for skillfully mixing comedy with some dramatic moments as well as for devoting at least an episode or two to even the most minor of characters throughout its run. It also has a fantastic jazzy soundtrack. The animation improved greatly over the 5 seasons of the series, and the first season is notably rougher than later seasons, but it is by no means bad, simply a product of its time.

This DVD is the general retail release of Season 1. This season was previously released as an Amazon exclusive Media on Demand (MOD) set burned to order and available for a relatively high price. The retail set has a much more professional feel to it, it comes packaged in a clear case with some nice art on the inside, as opposed to the standard issue black case that the previous release used. Additionally, the previous release had silent menus while this new set has the show's theme song playing in the background. The old set also had some compatibility issues related to the nature of the product; being burned on demand onto DVD-R discs led to complaints about the discs not being playable on certain players. While I personally never experienced that issue with any of the MOD sets, this new set should be free of those problems regardless.

This release contains NO extras whatsoever. Personally, this doesn't bother me as I usually use DVD extras once, at most.

You have no idea how excited I was to get this DVD. I watched it and within the first half hour I noticed something. The DVD SKIPS! Now I only figured this out but I can't be wrong when I noticed when Doug season 1 and Hey Arnold season 1 both have this problem. During flashes of light(lightning) the DVD will skip for a second or too.

Least to say I was outraged. It was due to several factors. The delayed shipment, the price of the DVD, and me finding out the DVD skips and made me wonder about the craftmanship. Now, this would not be a problem if I got my order on time OR that the price was significantly lower. If I am only the person with this problem, then the product I received was low in quality. But if anyone else does not have this lightning problem, then buy it!
