Characters:

James Isaac "Jimmy" Neutron Jimmy is a very smart kid, a genuine boy genius! But he's still the shortest kid in 5th grade, and he can't go out after dark. He spends his time inventing the wackiest gizmos and gadgets you can think of, and then saving the town of Retroville from the unintended results.... Jimmy is an only child and loves it ... most of the time, anyway. Any way you look at it, he's not your average, everyday kind of kid.

Carlton Ulysses "Carl" Wheezer Carl, Jimmy's best friend, loves llamas, and food, and sparkly, shiny things! His favorite channel is The Llama Channel, and one of his favorite activities is folding and hanging his pants! Carl is kinda like an old man trapped in a 5th grader's body. Nonetheless, he's still used as a test subject for many of Jimmy's inventions, and he usually goes along willingly. Although, one of these days, he's gonna end up in the hospital from helping science along....

Sheen Juarerra Estevez Sheen, Jimmy's other best friend, is completely, 100% obsessed with UltraLord. UltraLord, as Sheen would be quick to explain, is an action figure (not a doll) from the TV show The UltraLord Show. Sheen almost always has at least one of his many action figures with him, and he can relate anything to UltraLord. He is usually pretty funny and is the most maniacal character in Retroville.

Cynthia Aurora "Cindy" Vortex Cindy strongly believes that girls are better than boys, period. Especially if those boys are Jimmy, Carl, and Sheen. Cindy is the second smartest kid at Lindbergh Elementary, which really annoys her - she hates being second-best. But beneath her tough exterior, she secretly has a crush on the town's resident boy genius.

Liberty Danielle "Libby" Folfax Libby is Cindy's best friend. She's also something like a walking electronic store, since she's usually wearing her headphones, listening to her CD Player, talking on her cell phone, or any combination thereof. Libby sort of keeps Cindy sane, but she is always there to back her friend up.

Goddard Goddard is Jimmy's best invention, since nothing seems to go wrong with him. He's a living, metal, robotic dog who is very useful - he can do just about anything for Jimmy, like getting out tools or listing options. Goddard is actually a little smarter than Jimmy, and he can sometimes tell when an experiment will go wrong. But Jimmy always asures him that it will be fine.... Nick Dean Nick Dean is Mr. Cool according to the kids of Lindbergh Elementary. He can usually be seen with his helmet on, doing fancy tricks on his skateboard.

Jimmy's Parents Jimmy's parents are about as normal as their son. Jimmy's dad, Hugh Beaumont Neutron, loves pie and ducks. He's nice and everything, but Jimmy can't help wishing his dad was less embarrasing. Jimmy's mom, Judy Neutron, is more serious than Hugh, and she's where Jimmy got his intelligence. She's the cook and mechanic around the house, always fixing up pies and cars.

Miss Winifred Fowl Miss Fowl is the gang's 5th grade teacher. She sounds and looks much like a chicken. She's always willing to teach, even if Jimmy and Cindy are more like the teachers in the

Betty Quinlan Our favorite boy genius has a bit of a crush on this older girl. And the more appearances Betty makes, the more jealous Cindy becomes.

Bolbi Stroganovsky Bolbi is a foreign exchange student hailing from Bakheristan. Many of our American customs are still a mystery to Bolbi, but he is quickly adapting. One of his first American experiences was being elected student body president on soon after he began attending Lindbergh Elementary.

The enemies:

King Goobot Goobot is the king of the planet Yolkus. After Jimmy's satellite-toaster lands on his ship, he kidnaps all the parents in Retroville and quickly transforms into Jimmy's worst enemy.

Ooblar Ooblar is the brother and sidekick of Goobot. He is often hilarious and crazier than the king.

Poultra Poultra is an enormous, mutant chicken. She used to be the chicken god of Yolkus, but she presumably left for another planet after the embarrassing incident with Retroville's kids and parents.

Professor Finbarr Calamitous Calamitous is a bumbling, evil genius who never finishes anything, sometimes including his own sentences! Originally, he was plotting to use Jimmy to help him take over Retroville, but now his main goal is to destroy Jimmy and his friends.

The Junkman The Junkman is an alien junk-dealer who kidnapped Jimmy's mechanical brother's parents, Mombot and Popbot, to turn them into Grava-Disks. All he cares about is making interstellar money. Also, Goddard appears to be in love with the Junkman's alien dog, Roxy.

Eustace Strytch Eustace is a spoiled rich boy who started his enmity with Jimmy in a kite contest. His desire is to have Goddard and to make Jimmy's friends of his own, thought he doesn't trust in anybody but him, his lots of money and his butler, who happens to make him company and responds to every one of his foiled plans.

Meldar Meldar is an alien who, using the power of matrix generators in his cuff links, forced different forms of life from different planets to play his game show, Intergalactic Showdown, where the losers got their home planet destroyed! Jimmy and the others got his show cancelled permanently, though, forcing Meldar to work on infomercials.

Twonkies Twonkies are cute and fluffy creatures from the comet Twonkus 9 ... at least, they're cute and fluffy until they hear music! Music causes them to mutate into horrible, ugly creatures that try to tear up the town, eventually combining together to form a sort of mega twonkie, and this is the Final state. The Twonkies continue to make cameos in episodes throughout the 3rd season. Be on the lookout for them.

Grandma Tatters Althought you can first think of her as a chubby and good-as-bread grandma, she's part of an evil race of aliens from outerspace who can control human's people emotions and make them all 'happy' zombies.

Dr. Moist A scientific and crazy genius. He managed to build his own lab in the Bermuda Triangle, at the bottom of the sea. People who passes through, Dr. Moist abducts them to his lab and turns them into Algae Men.

  • Ended Over Money

    10
    After the 2006 movie, "Ant Bully" DNA Studios made a massive 55+ million dollars. This led to issues With Steve Oedekerk who owned "O Entertainment"(A Co-Producer) (Back at The Barnyard) and thus he sued DNA Studios and the founder John Adams paid him off. This put DNA Studios in major financial issues due to the lawsuit and in 2006 the show came to an end. This was a close childhood favorite of mines. Its nostalgic, genius, creative and funny. Its a TV show that spun off a innovative movie and is a good show. Steve the company did not deserve this, a chunk of my childhood was removed, for greed.moreless
  • this show actually holds up

    8.0
    This will be a short one. Its rare that a TV show like jimmy neutron comes around because it was based on a movie by the same company, had all the voices reunite for the series, had some really good writing, jokes, plotlines, and even character development (though the animation sucks, but it has charm), and when the show ran out of ideas, it ended while it was still good. if you can find a way to watch this show, please do. it surprisingly holds up after all these yearsmoreless

    A silly but charming show about a super genius boy who's gets more than what he and his friends bargained for from his inventions and antics. Definitely worth watching. Has really good moments.
