Councilman Gladhand is the main antagonist of the Hey Arnold! episode, "Mr. Green Runs." He was the local councilman of Arnold's district who would rather entertain rich friends than actually do his job. When he does nothing about a sinkhole outside Green Meats, Mr. Green runs against him. Gladhand attempted to persuade Arnold to make Mr. Green drop out of the race in return for fixing the sinkhole. Mr. Green wins anyway and unseats Gladhand as Councilman.
