Also, I love the idea of giving Phoebe a big instrument, as one other person said, like Lisa Simpson and her saxophone. And maybe Rhonda refuses to use an instrument someone else has used before.

Also, if we did a rock band, we could have Arnold on bass, Gerald and someone else (Jamie O maybe?) on guitar, and Helga on drums because she's the only one that fits the role. They play a concert, and at the end Helga tries once again to confess her love to Arnold, but Gerald comes backstage and tells them the audience wants an encore... or something like that.

I think Helga would be better on guitar. Harold could be on drums.

Harold would put his head through one of the drum heads.

I think there should be a running gag throughout that Curly wants to join the band on bassoon and everyone shouts in unison every time, "WE DON'T NEED A BASSOON!" Because let's face it: Bassoons are funny.

Also, I think a jazz band is best because the show had a kind of jazzy feel to it as evidenced by its background music. It would be cool to pay homage to the music of the real show.

Excuse me, but SLIDE WHISTLES are funny. Bassoons are just big, fat and ugly.

And I agree with the jazz idea, but honestly I think a rock band is more popular in that age group. I realize that Arnold and Phil love jazz, but still... Rock bands make kids go crazy. I know, because I'm a kid.

Yeah, but slide whistles are so juvenile! Bassoons are funny BECAUSE they're big, fat, ugly, unnecessary, and unwieldy to carry around. It would just be funny to see Curly lugging a bassoon everywhere. LOL.

And I agree that kids today are more into rock bands, but this is Hey Arnold we're talking about. Everything is very 90's, and the show has a really retro feel. I just think rock bands are clichéd and every cartoon and their dog has had a rock band episode. Hey Arnold has always broken the mold--why stop now? We should do something different! Jazz band for the win!

That is my final answer. XD

You make a good point, Meganium. Alright, I'm convinced.

We could show the kids in concert band, then have that inspire them to start jazz band. And drumsets are far larger and more unwieldy than a bassoon.

OOOH! If Curly is in the band, when they are coming up with a band name, he should suggest "The Thaddeators" - and be rejected, of course. Now, how can I work Rhonda into the jazz band so she can personally tell him no.... She can play piano. It seems like a rich-person instrument. Can we say she just happens to own 2 9-foot Steinways?

So what about Arnold on bass, Gerald on guitar, Helga as the drummer (I know, PleaseSendMoney - point taken) only because everyone else was crap, Rhonda on piano, Curly on baritone saxophone (it's nearly as big as a basoon), Phoebe on tenor (still bigger than her), Sid on alto sax, Eugene on soprano sax, then Harold on trombone, and...uhhh. I seem to have written myself into a hole. Perhaps Lila on trumpet, as an unexpected twist, and Brainy on... damn... uhh... another trumpet!

Alternately we could give Phoebe the bass saxophone, which is slightly larger than the bari, and find another tenor player. We could also do a "combo", which is generally smaller (3-6 people) and not have to worry about so many instruments.
