  • They already made a movie of this. Its called gremlins.

    *sigh* Nick ncik nick...why cant you make up your own ideas? Huh? They had a movie simalar to this called gremlins. Nick is just being cheap...again. I like jimmy neutron, but this was just sad. Very sad. Plus...if you read rapaxs's review, youll see something I also hate. Carl was a freaking spoiled brat in this episode.He acted all bossy and had an anooying 'I have to be the center of attention' additued.He acted like he was the gretest person in the world all because he had a stupid twonkie.

    In closing, this was probally the worst jn episode ever. Who could think that such a good movie could be hacked up itno this?moreless
  • very witty

    The first half of Attack of the Twonkies was very funny, poor Sheen, getting teased by Miss Fowl and Princple Willoughby, because he cant sing.

    I love this quote:

    Willoughby: Look Sheen as Chorus master I know talent--

    Miss Fowl: And thats what you have no talent.

    That cracks me up.

    The fact that the twonkies become enraged when they hear music is interesting where the singer is good or bad, but in Sheen's case he just put them to sleep.moreless
  • This epsiode was funny and clever.

    Yes this episode was the best episode of season 2. It was a great season finale. It was comical and very adventurous. At first I thought nothing well be better then The Jimmy and Timmy power hour but I was wrong this episode topped The Jimmy and Timmy power hour. Sheen's singing was horrible but FUNNNY. After this episode the twonkies appear in every episode in season 3.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Also contributing to the submission below, since ice is water in a solid form, and the human body is composed of approximately 90% water, it would be impossible to be allergic to water, because he would be allergic to himself. Of course, the possibility of being allergic to anything and everything is a constant running gag of the Wheezer family

    • If Mr. Wheezer is allergic to ice, how does he survive winter?

    • When Cindy pushes Jimmy, her twonkie is pink, but after that, Isabella is green.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Jimmy: How did you guys get in...
      Carl: (pessimistically) Bag of your hair. (holds up bag)
      Jimmy: Well, how did you guys get a bag of my... never mind.

    • Jimmy: Guys! This isn't the time for blame. If it were I'd be saying things like "I tried to tell you" and "Why didn't you jerks listen to me?"

    • Sheen: Too bad you didn't get anything from the comet to make me feel better....
      Jimmy: Nope, I sure didn't! So anyway, Goddard hits him with the ion blast, and it doesn't even phase him! So then I said, "Hit him with a particle beam!"--
      Sheen: So you're sayin' I should battle the eight foot monster of rejection with a particle beam of my amazing talents?!
      Jimmy: ...No, not exactly.
      Sheen: I'll do it! (proudly walks off)
      Jimmy: (sighing) I have to work on my story-telling skills....

    • Sheen: Please let me in the chorus! My voice grows on you!
      Miss Fowl: So do liver spots, but I don't make you look at them! (laughs)
      Willoughby: (trying not to laugh) Now, Miss Fowl, that's not funny. (starts to laugh) Okay, okay, it was a little funny....
      Sheen: (offended) I have half a mind to report you!
      Willoughby: Half a mind? No wonder you can't sing!
      (Sheen stalks off as Willoughby and Miss Fowl laugh harder)
      Willoughby: (finally recovers from laughing) We are so fired.

    • Willoughby: Look, Sheen, as chorus master, I know talent--
      Miss Fowl: And that's what you have - no talent!

    • (after Jimmy blasts off for his date with Twonkus-3)
      Sheen: So, what'd I miss?
      Carl: Oh, Jimmy's dating a comet, and I have to go sniff animals. (leaves to go to the pet store)
      Sheen: And they say I'm the weird one.

  • NOTES (12)


    • Graystar: Name and Appearance
      The band name in the episode was taken from the real band Graystar, consisting of Dominic James (lead vocals), Craige Finnie (lead guitar), Niel Hartly (drum/precussion), Tim Dyer (keyboards), and John Reynolds (bass). In the episode the band is more of a punk/rock band though.

    • When Jimmy drops Hugh off at the grocery store, Hugh floats down with an umbrella, the same way Mary Poppins used to do.

    • Jimmy: Atomic batteries to power ... turbines to speed....
      In Batman, Robin would say this before the Batmobile started up.

    • Willoughby: (singing) Library! We've got the cutest little library.... The books are stacked by author, A-Z, and all for free!

      Willoughby's song was to the tune of Brenda Lee's "Baby Face."

    • Jimmy's Rocket Concert Piece
      The music that Jimmy is playing inside the rocket is Boccerini's "Minuet in A Major."
