We know, we know -- every day, someone else is declared "the original hipster" (even the "Sweet Valley High" sisters). But we're pretty sure that Arnold from "Hey Arnold!" was indeed one of the forebears of today's modern hipsters, what with his commitment to plaid shirts, skinny pants, retro headphones and generally laid-back style.
