Arnold "Arnie" Pye, once referred to as Bill Pye, is a disgruntled, somewhat eccentric helicopter traffic reporter for Springfield's KBBL-TV (Channel 6). His segments are titled Arnie Pye With Arnie in the Sky.

Biography[edit]

Dislike of Brockman[edit]

He has an apparent dislike of anchorman Kent Brockman, with whom he often gets into arguments on the air, because Kent is a much bigger and luckier star. Their rivalry may have also started when Brockman described Arnie's job as "a mere traffic report".[1]

Accident[edit]

Pye's helicopter once crashed; he managed to say "Tell my wife I love—" before the live feed was lost. The incident was dismissed with a chuckle by the oblivious Brockman. However, he survived and has been seen in several episodes afterward.

Replacing Brockman[edit]

Arnie Pye as an anchorman

When Kent was demoted to a Weatherman and eventually fired, Arnie briefly became the new head anchor. He spoke in a deeper, smoother voice, but returned to his normal register when he got excited near the end of the report. (A similar gag was used in a previous episode with Bumblebee Man, who took over Brockman's desk and spoke perfect English as he delivered the news, right up until the end.)[2]

Behind the Laughter[edit]

  • In some of the early episodes, he was referred to as "Bill Pye".
  • "Arnie Pye in the Sky" is a play on words with the expression "pie in the sky".
