  1. ^ "Shortman" is not completely confirmed canon. Craig Bartlett has stated, however, that Arnold's last name has been used quite often in the series, and some fans speculate that because Arnold's grandfather refers to him as "Shortman": Shortman is his last name. Fans either use Shortman in referring to his last name or do not use one at all.
