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.

Please reblog; I don’t normally say this, but I want people to know what cartoons used to be like, back when cartoons had a moral.
I remember crying so much when i first watched this a loooonggg time ago. still makes me tear up now.
