The adventures of a daydreaming, jazz-loving, football-headed 9-year-old, who lives in a boarding house with his grandparents and some eccentric boarders, encounters life in the city with his best friend Gerald, a loofah-haired kid, who is the keeper of the urban tales and coolest kid in class; and Helga, who torments him, but loves him secretly.
Rhonda has a party and only invites the cool kids. Arnold attends, but realises her party is only for snobs. He leaves and has his own party with his buddies and eventually Rhonda realises that 'geek' is cooler than 'cool.'
