never watched Jimmy Neutron because no dub when I was a kid
hear about it sporadically when terrible tumblr tier memes pop up
watch a couple of episodes out of curiosity
it's pretty damn good
How did they manage to produce a show with so many mature jokes without censors asking for their heads on a stick? Was it because the budget allocated for the whole thing was basically peanuts? I mean, I've heard the animators were working beyond human limits and modifying assets and reusing animations left and right, but still.

For a show that was animated on a budget of chewed bubble gum and buttons, they really managed to polish their turd well.
It's a decently fun show, with all the highs and lows that entails. I've not seen it since it went off air years ago, but clips here and there still make me laugh, and my friends still bring it up from time to time despite being twenty somethings.
Was the budget that shoestring? I remember it looking pretty well.
they used the same half dozen character models for pretty much every background character in the show. so whenever there would be a shot of some downtown area, it would always be just a few people walking around cause they couldnt afford to fill it up more.
There's a Japanese TV bigshot who gets reused for various roles, including a policeman, an angry mob member and a father, among the various reused assets.
tell me, i didnt watch jimmy neutron much, but did the show go downhill before or after the fairly oddparents crossovers? or at all?
I've watched almost, if not every episode. I haven't seen it since it went off the air, so my memory's a bit fuzzy, but I didn't notice any real decline back then. Aside from some story development, the show stayed pretty much the same from start to finish. It wasn't super amazing, but it's worth the time to watch it.
Stay away from Planet Sheen though. I watched half of an episode, and I nearly fucking died.
Tell me about Planet Sheen.
Sheen's brain is replaced by Patrick's from Nu-Spongebob, and he's on a planet full of alien Patricks, except they're even dumber.
Now imagine watching that for a full 30 minutes, with only the occasional commercial break sent by God himself in an attempt to save your soul.
The weirdest part about Planet Sheen is they don't seem to have the rights to any other character. The note on the ship in the pilot is just labelled "J. N." with no distinguishable marking of it being related to the original series.
Doesn't one of the aliens look exactly like Carl?
They had some rights. There was going to be a movie finale where Jimmy and friends rescue Sheen, but no one watched Planet Sheen, so they canned that idea.
JN suffered the Nickelodeon curse.
Boring first season, great second, hit and miss third.
I remember it dearly.
Some characters got positively flanderized, my favorite was Sheen who grew up from the ultralord BS to become some hyperactive squitzo that's a charm to have in small doses.
The episodes did grew increasingly in quality plots and the arcs could be very entertaining but it is jarring to go back to some of the animation, late season 2 got gud though.
I did got involved in the romance subplots, then again I was dealing with the same issues of the age at that time, BTW did you ever got that feeling that the characters were supposed to age with the show (I.e 11, 12, 13 by season) but had to keep with status quo?
If I can pinpoint when the show got good I when they adopted cartoon logic and became self-aware to not take itself too seriously.
**Alson, sorry for out of the left field topic is one of the last cartoons to play the "Beware of immigrants even if they say to need help."
Is JN off the air in the US?
Charlie is fucking all girls on a planet and they get HIV. Inbetween there are laugh-reels. It's a non-stop thrillride.
Yeah, as far as I can tell at least.
I don't turn on the TV too often, but I haven't seen JN on in years.
I would have actually enjoyed a darker JN if it were the last one at least.
It was great they were able to show Cindy in her underwear. Anyone have scans of the When Pants Attack book? Curious how she's drawn there.
It actually sounds pretty good for a last season, kinda glad it's over though since I know that it wouldn't have been the last one and would only gone dark and edgy for the sake of it, also I hope they never bring it back, I don't trust 2017 to explore the relationship of two teenage girls in a kid's show.
Why? Is not even good CP.
Man, I forgot how weird this show was sometimes.
Maybe if The Jungle Movie is successful we'll see more grand finale movies for canceled series. Wouldn't be too hard to recycle the ideas for the last season into a single movie.
Some moments are goddamn hilarious in a weird humor sort of way
Sorry, but whenever I hear Jimmy Neutron, I only remember that smug police bitch from Tenchi Universe.
Holy shit dubs, didn't they just end up trashing whistling?
I think it was a cyclical hate of something.
This may be worth a nostalgic revisiting.
by being an early pusher for racemixing and "we wuz kangs" :^)
No, it was "Extreme dislike of girls who dislike boys who dislike girls who dislike boys…" ad infinitum.
Ahhh damn, that made Carl snap didn't it?
Sheen was the one who snapped.
they found the tsundere quirk
they threw it in the trash
Better people than us.
The ones doing the racemixing were a spic with a nigger though. Plus the whole Kangz shit happened in a time where there was still no definite evidence that ancient Egyptians were, in fact, even more Aryan than Romans themselves.
I actually like the romance subplots, IIRC I was annoyed with all the "Will they, won't they" bullshit between Cindy and Jimmy, until now I realized Sheen and Libby were an official couple long before the series ended so the BS between Jimmy and Cindy is actually in-character because of their egos,
Oh hey, I remember wanting to fuck her :^)
Also, they had a
we wuz kangz lite
Prove it pale nigger. They weren't nigs but they're not Europeans either.
I remember having wet dreams with Cindy when I was a kid, I never got off since her model would degenerate as the dream kept on until she was just a mass of meat and limbs with a cgi vagina.
Also I was dreaming for some reason.
Maybe the first dynasty, but Cleopatra and Ptolemy were of mixed Greek-Egyptian ancestry.
They certainly didn’t look like the bastard result of the Warlord Muhammad’s conquests that are modern Egyptians.
The only aspect of that god-forsaken show that my brain hasn't mercifully purged was the intro; everything after the first cutaway gag and my brain stopped remembering anything.
So Greeks are Aryan now?
They weren't nigs but they're not Europeans either.
That's because the Egyptians had been along for so fucking long compared to all other European and Middle Eastern races that they stand out as unique among all of them. Besides, if you ever lived in a place where it's sunny 360 days a year you too would look bronze. Anatolians and Southern Europeans were most definitely white until Turkic races emerged from the various Asiatic hordes that settled down around the Middle East.
Greeks were definitely white until the fall of Byzantium. Most of North-West Africa was also black before, once again, Muslim invaders took over. Arabs are probably the only ME race to stay relatively the same.
They are if it means not copping to the fact that Mediterraneans are separate from whites.
Update: Carl Wheezer can no longer be trusted, the sick fuck
I'd like to see that Planet Sheen..want to see that Tiger Blood in action.
Same voice actress, I assume.
Is this from something Rob Paulsen did or what?
I remember this show being pretty lame, sheen just doesn't work when he's alone, he's better when's he's with jimmy and carl.
Egypt was for a time the center of the world, I would highly doubt there's a single ancient egyptian ethnicity, and probably some that just doesn't even exist nowadays. Arguing over who was "white" thousands of years ago by today's modern definition is futile.
They weren't nigs but they're not Europeans either.
Their DNA sure says so…
an interview with him and cindy's VA
user your shift key is broken,
user your shit non-meme is broken
Truly, a patrician walks among us
>Having an Into the Future ending ended up being the best way to end the series
>To this day some series keep on tumbling down trying to up the ante with barely any significance behind the act other than cashing in on the franchise's popularity
No one cares user
I think the author himself implied that he could perfectly have continued the series. There was an interview where he mentioned many scenarios he hadn't written (school trip, etc.) but he felt as if he'd given enough material/characterized Kitano and his friends enough for the reader to be able to imagine these scenarios instead.
Oh man I forgot that episode. That was a fun one, I miss that show.
don't pretend you don't post that everywhere like the reddit spacing autists do
Reminder of Jimmy Neutron > Fairly OddParents > Uncle Grandpa > Power Puff Girls > Dexter's Lab connection. CANON. One multi verse.
Is Mandark a better inventor than Jimmy?
What's the Uncle Grandpa connections?
Fairly OddParents > Uncle Grandpa
owns the greatest lab in the universe
How can Dexter ever recover?
wtf was Jimmy's problem?
Also on the mexican dub, Skeet was voiced by the same actor who used to voice Eddy.
Uncle Grandpa connected to either of those
to my knowledge it's only connected to Secret Mountain Fort Awesome and Steven Universe
canon in any way
The others I can sort of see being in the same universe, maybe, if at different times
but that shit no
Jimmy is the worst character in his own show, personality-wise. Sure, Cindy and most of the kids antagonize him because he's clearly the smartest in the whole town, but he needs to show off in everything he does. In the episode in question, the trio runs out of gold they stole from their relatives to power up some anti-gravity invention, which by itself would have more than made up the money they lost if Jimbo had the foresight of actually selling it off to the govt instead of being a hoarding bitch relying on his parents' wealth. They go job-seeking and end up at McSpanky's, where Skeet, being the savvy businessman and eternal employee of the month, immediately notices that Carl and Sheen have the right attributes and potential to become gourmet fast food workers. Jimbo is considered a bad fit for the job and Skeet politely tells him that he wouldn't hire him. At this point, Jimmy just wants in on the mcjob to show off: earlier in the episode, it's clear that there's jobs available that would suit his autistic intellect more than serving patties, but he HAS to show this honest worker that He, Jimmy Neutron, Boy Genius, can work at a mcjob no problem. Literally the problems that arose in the episode are all Jimmy's fault and he'd have recouped the money for the lost gold in less time if he took the nuclear job opportunity, but no, he has to waltz in a perfectly working establishment and dismantle it from within like the terrible person that he is. Skeet even tries to give him increasingly easier jobs to avoid breaking his heart and firing him and he just spits on his generosity.
A Q U E B I E N S E Ñ O R M A R A V I L L A
The porn of both is still topnotch
I don't remember fuckin' anything about this show other than that one episode about that guy who couldn't finish anything.
Me neither, only when Jimmy invents a repeating day machine or his evil self.
