Stoop Kid is a nameless character who lives on a stoop in Hillwood. He is infamous throughout the neighborhood for his attachment to his stoop, as he grew up on it and refuses to leave it. He is an aggressive bully, shouting at pedestrians and those who get too close to his stoop, however he himself is bullied by the neighborhood kids as well. In the episode "Stoop Kid", which marks his first appearance, Arnold coaxes Stoop Kid to finally leave his stoop, an event which draws a large crowd and headlines in newspapers. Harold is unaware of this and taunts him, which results in Stoop Kid jumping off his stoop attacking him. The only other times Stoop Kid is seen off of his stoop are in the episodes "Arnold Betrays Iggy", where Stoop Kid is seen in the crowd of people near the end of the episode, and "Cool Party", where he is a guest at Arnold's 'geek' party.
Stoop Kid has been shown eating apples from the tree beside his stoop, washing his hair with a nearby hose, watching a miniature television, and reading The Little Engine That Could, all while on his stoop.
