"Helga's Makeover" is an episode of Hey Arnold!.


After every girl except Helga goes to Rhonda's slumber party, the boys have suggested that Helga's not a girl and a man on the streets has called her young man, she wants to show everybody that she can indeed be feminine. So she buys an issue of Preteen Miss at the Corner Store, where Gerald's mother works at the checkout. Then she locks herself in the bathroom and starts her makeover. The result makes Miriam faint and the girls at Rhonda's party speechless.

While Helga's giving makeup tips at Rhonda's, Sid, who had seen her, tells the boys, who are eating at Omar's Falafel Hut, about Helga's new look. That makes them curious so they come up with a plan to scare the girls. Meanwhile, Pheobe tries to reason with her best friend. She explains that she wants the old Helga, but Helga refuses. Just when Rhonda is about to drop a scoopful of avocado facial cream into Helga's face, she changes her mind and becomes the old Helga again. She tells the other girls that what they're doing is stupid, states some reasons why--they're only nine, so they don't have to worry about skin problems (wrinkles) and they're also currently taller than most of the boys (so there's no need for them to wear heeled shoes). Rhonda explains that these are what girls do at slumber parties and asks what could be more fun. The other girls repeat Rhonda's question.

At that moment the girls hear a noise coming from outside the window. When they pull the curtains aside they see the boys staring at them. The girls are scared of the boys and the boys are scared of the girls with their avocado cream masks. So the boys start to run away and the girls chase them. But Harold's not fast enough and falls prey to the girls and they dress Harold up like a girl with Helga and Phoebe agreeing that this is much more fun than what they were doing before.
