See What Characters From 'Hey Arnold!' Would Look Like As Adults

Have you ever wondered what the characters of "Hey Arnold!" would look like grown up? How about what they'd be doing in their adult lives?

Thanks to artist Nuri Durr, you can now find out what happened to the kids of P.S. 118 and where they ended up (at least according to Durr's imagination). In Durr's reimagining of the Nickelodeon classic, which he describes as a hypothetical series centered around the now 26-year-old Helga Pataki, some characters have pursued the arts, one has run for office and others have stuck around Hillwood.

Check out Durr's illustrations and character descriptions:
