  • Perfect - funnny, but with a great plot too!

    The first 20 seconds of this episode looked stupid, just some kung fu kid (to quote Sheen), "Doing chop-sakaki stuff." Well, thank god I didnt change the channel. This episode is my favorite Jimmy Neutron one and is in essence what the show is all about. The plot was strong - Yoo Yee (the kung fu kid) wants Sheen's job as the chosen one and must fight him for it. In order to get Sheen to Shagra-Llama, he takes Libby. It was fully engaging and I didnt move, even during commerical breaks.



    But this episode was also just hysterical. When Sheen was doing the "Funky Porpouse" I almost fell out of my chair. I have made it my goal in life to learn that dance (jk . . .well, kinda). This episode also never gets old, I've seen it about 10 times, and every single time, I start laughing when Sheen does that funaky porpose. (EEEK!)

    This episode was too funny, Yoo-Yee is great at kung fo, but the one thing he lacks to become the chosen one is that he can't put his foot behind his head, so he kidnaps libby in hopes that he can challage Shenn and become the new chosen one, Sheen excepts but before he fights Yoo-Yee he inlists the help of Master Hong, witch fails terribly, but Sheen sitll manages to neat Yoo-Yee after Libby proclaims to be his Girlfriend and awakens the tiger within Sheen. Another Jimmy Neutron Classic.moreless

    I love sheen, I love dancing, and I love ninjas, could this episode get any better? I thought I was going to die when sheen was doing the crazy porpose, and there was even a but of JC involved. Sheen is a plethera of quotes, and this episode had many of his best
  • In this episode Sheen finds out he is the chosen one is Shangri Llama because he can put his foot behind his head.Libby is kidnapped by ninjas and it's up to Sheen to save her.moreless

    9.0
    This was a great episode. It was great to see Sheen to fight martial arts style with the help of Jimmy's invention. I liked this episode because Libby called Sheen her boyfriend. This episode showed how much Sheen and Libby cared for each other even more.This episode lost a point because I really wanted to see Jimmy and Cindy dance together in the dance contest.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (8)

    • When Jimmy and Carl are throwing things at Sheen in the lab, Jimmy throws a piece of wood and Carl throws a cinder block. When the view is switched to facing Sheen, we don't see a cinder block being thrown at him until later on.

    • At the beginning of the Sheen/Yoo-yee fight, Yoo-yee walks across the center of the cross like fighting ring. But a couple shots later, neither of them moved, and they are standing in the center of the arena.

    • This is a continuation from Operation: Jet Fusion because Sheen knew that the world would one day value his "unique" ability.

    • Bloopers in the Blooper Reel at the End:
      - Sheen's Leg popping out
      - Jimmy actually having a wig
      - Yoo Yee flying crazy
      - Cindy falling from the sky, landing behind Jimmy
      - Sheen getting hit by a door

    • First appearances of Bolbi's sister and Yoo-Yee.

    • Bolbi's "Slap Slap Slap, Clap Clap Clap" dance is revealed to be called "Salute-du-Slap Dancing."

    • When Jimmy puts in the Kung-Fu disk before the fight, but it doesn't work, the screen on the dance machine reads "Kung-Fu." So when Carl gave him the dance disk, wouldn't he have seen it was the wrong one.

    • When Carl said the cracking noise was his scapula he pointed to his back, but your scapula is your shoulder blade.

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Sheen: Jimmy, you have to help me! The only respectable dance I know is The Crazy Porpoise!

    • Carl: How many fingers am I holding up?
      Sheen: November?

    • Master Hong: To float, you must have the eye of the tiger.
      Carl: Eye of the tiger? Seems fattening.

    • Jimmy: It's shangri Llama alright and it's crawling with ninjas... (Jimmy, Carl and Sheen see ninjas crawling all over Shangri Llama)

    • Sheen: It's Shangri-Llama alright.
      Monks: Chanting in unison, chanting in unison, chanting in unison...

    • Jimmy: Do you have any villians with access to ninjas?
      Sheen: No, but I have a half-cousin with access to the internet.

    • Miss Fowl: Jimmy, I don't have you on my list of dancers.
      Jimmy: Oh! I'm not in the show, Miss Fowl, but it's very important that I--
      Miss Fowl: (interupts - shakes her head) Ah-ah-ah! No butts, unless you're shaking yours (wiggles her butt) tonight!

    • Yoo Yee: Prepare to meet your fate, Chosen One!
      Sheen: What? No "How was your flight, Chosen One?" "What hotel are you staying at, Chosen One?"

    • Master Hong: Put your leg behind your head!
      Sheen: (tries to do it, and accidently pulls out his leg) That'll hurt in the morning! (laughs) Moving on!!

  • NOTES (1)

  • ALLUSIONS (9)

    • Master Hong: Character

      Master Hong could have been a spof of 'Master Fung' from Xiaolin Showdown

    • Master Hong: You lack the eye of the tiger

      When Master Hong says "eye of the tiger", it is an obvious spoof of the Rocky movies where Balboa has the insigna and saying of the tiger.

    • Music: "Kill Bill Vol. 1&2"

      When Sheen find his "Eye of The Tiger" the background music is similar to that of the movie "Kill Bill Vol. 1&2"

    • Music: "Everybody Was Kung-Fu Fighting"

      When Sheen is training with Master Hong, in the background you will hear the tune of the popular song "Everybody Want's Kung-fu Fighting" in the background.

    • Crouching Jimmy, Hidden Sheen: Plot

      This episode is a lot like a mixture of the Kim Possible episodes "Exchange" and "Gorilla Fist".

    • Yoo Yee: Appearance

      The kung-fu master, Yoo Yee, that Sheen fights kind of resembles Ulrich Stern on Code Lyoko.

    • Sheen and Yoo Yee: (banter)

      Some of the banter between Sheen and Yoo Yee in this episode is a direct spoof of some of the dialogue in Steve Oedekerk's (producer of the JN movie) Kung Pow: Enter the Fist.

    • Yoo Yee: (fighting)

      Some Yoo Yee's moves are taken from Ken, Ryu, and Chun-li, who are characters from the Street Fighters series.

    • Crouching Jimmy, Hidden Sheen: Title

      The title is taken from Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.
