  • Episode Description
  • Maximum Hugh: It's time for the Parent-Child Picnic Games at Lindbergh Elementary - and the Vortexes always win. Since Jimmy doesn't think Hugh has what it takes to beat Cindy and her mom, he invents a headband to scientifically bring his dad's performance levels up past human standards. Invention: Corrective electromagnetic cranial band. (Hugh's headband) Sleepless in Retroville: Jimmy is hosting a sleepover with Carl and Sheen! To make it the best slumber party in history, Jimmy invents a machine to make perfect pillows for pillow fights, create made-to-order pizzas, and tell scream-your-head-off scary stories. But what happens when Carl overloads the invention and the programs mix up? Invention: Slumbertron 9000.moreless

  • Quotes (13)

    • Hugh: I remember my first sleepover. The games, the practical jokes, the crying for my mommy. Judy: Hugh, that was our honeymoon. Hugh: Yeah, I know.

    • Carl: Hi, Mr. Neutron! We're here! Sheen: Are you ready for us? Hugh: (confused) Sleeping bags? Toothbrushes? You're moving in?! Aww, no...two more mouths to feed, braces, college. Honey! Judy: Calm down, Hugh. They're just here for Jimmy's sleepover. Hugh: Oh, well that's not nearly as bad.

    • (the Pizza Monster wakes up from a nightmare screaming) Pizza Monster's wife: Honey, what is it? Pizza Monster: Oh, I had the most horrible dream! There were 3 terrible children; a tubby one, a maniac one, and one with a giant head!! Pizza Monster's wife: I told you, dear. There's no such thing as children, now go back to sleep. (both go back in pizza box beds)

    • Pizza Monster: FOOLS! Haven't you ever heard of sequels?

    • Jimmy: The possibilities of you and your mom having different eye color, foot size, and earlobe length are 270,000,000 to 1. Cindy: You think just because your stupid data says that, it's true?! Jimmy: That ... and the fact that she has a zipper on the back of her neck.

    • This episode can be seen on the DVD "The Jimmy Timmy Power Hour."

    Trivia (9)

    • When Jimmy accuses Cindy of cheating, he supplies the evidence that the chances of Cindy being that different from her mom are 270 million to one. However, this is not conclusive because Jimmy would not be able to calculate the difference without her Dad's genes as well. It's very well possible that her father could have many dominant genes, therefore spreading more of his physical features onto Cindy instead of her mother.

    • The Pizza Monster is Jimmy's nightmare, which is Hugh's nightmare, which is Carl's nightmare, which is Sheen's nightmare, which is the Pizza Monster's nightmare.

    • We learn that Hugh has two left feet. Also, we see that without Hugh's headband, he couldn't run.

    • We learn that Carl's dad wears a wig after an accident at last year's picnic.

    • Coach Gruber mentioned a father and son team called "Team DeCarlo." Mark DeCarlo does the voice of Hugh. The DeCarlo's mentioned as "Team DeCarlo" are also the CGI versions of Keith Alcorn and his son, Nathan.

    • Coach Gruber: Team Neutron is dominating these games!
      This quote, Hugh's victory dance, and the victory music playing in the background during the scene are spoofed from Madden NFL.

    • Title: Sleepless in Retroville The title comes from Sleepless in Seattle.

    • Pizza: Monster The unsuspected and very bizarre ending for "Sleepless in Retroville" is very similar to those same unexplained endings in the highly popular television show The Twilight Zone.

    • Marshmallow: Toss When Hugh's catching the marshmallows in his mouth during the marshmallow toss, the slow-time thing is taken from The Matrix's bullet-dodging scene.

    • Carl: Time to take out the trash! This is the infamous catch phrase of Duke "The Dumpster" Drose.
