If Stoop Kid were real, his life story is the type of thing Oprah would dedicate a full episode to. First he was abandoned on a stoop as a baby and that alone is pretty damn bad. It gets worse though, he raises himself on the previously mentioned stoop eating apples from a nearby tree and basically loving and protecting the stoop as if it were his family. His obsession gets out of control as he aggressively shoos away and harasses each and every passerby. When Arnold exposes Stoop Kids fear of leaving the stoop to the general public, kids torture him with a very public, massive verbal lashing. This is all HORRIBLE. I mean, sure in the end Arnold kind of helps him become comfortable leaving his stoop and that’s sort of redemption but that doesn’t change the cold hard facts that follow:
1.) He was abandoned as a baby and nobody found and/or took care of him.
2.) Nobody loves him. Hell, nobody even likes him besides Arnold.
3.) Nearly all of his life has taken place on a stoop.
4.) He has a ridiculously thick unibrow. Seriously. Look at him.
Now, we can all look past these things and be satisfied that Stoop Kid is no longer afraid to leave his stoop but if you’re a decent person then surely the conclusion of that episode wasn’t adequate for you. If you’re a cold-hearted person and that ending was sufficient – you probably related well to cartoon characters like Angelica Pickles.
