YouTuber Merfish is a pro at recreating famous scenes from movies and TV in the open-world game Grand Theft Auto V; visit his channel and you’ll spot The Powerpuff Girls, Teletubbies and even a trailer for Batman v Superman, all set in the fictional city of San Andreas.

His latest clip is perhaps my favorite: a frame-by-frame remake of the intro to the 1990s Nickelodeon animated series ‘Hey Arnold!

Merfish nails everything from the costumes to the camera angles (with some creative license, of course), and even throws in a surprise ending that veers cheekily from the original.

Check out the remake above, and head over to YouTube to watch the side-by-side comparison.
