Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie

While on the plane, Abner stows away in his backpack. When everyone arrives in San Lorenzo, they are greeted by Arnold's parents' old friend, "Eduardo".

Later that night, "Eduardo" is smelled by Abner. Abner doesn't smell anything good and tried to warn Arnold, but to no avail, deciding to leave the ship so that he could warn Arnold's grandparents.

Abner managed to make it back to Arnold's grandparents, Grandpa Phil and Grandma Gertie who see this as a sign that Arnold is in trouble.

A few months later, Arnold wakes up in his bedroom and rushes downstairs to find things seemingly back to the way it was before the trip, only this time his parents are cooking breakfast, when Arnold are ready for his first day of sixth grade and give him a bacon.
