    In El Magnifico: Sheen's dad is afraid that Sheen loves ultra lord more then him so he begs Jimmy to make him a suit to impress Sheen, and it works, even after the suit losses power and him, Sheen and Carl are trapped in an Alligator cage.



    Best of Show: Goddard wins a dog show but is disqualified because no one considers him a real pet, so he runs away, Jimmy later finds, and Goddard ends up saving Cindy, the person who caused all of this in the first place, and she finally admits Goddard is a real pet.



    Both episodes where classic, Cindy up to her normal tricks of trying to show up Jimmy, and I'm glad that Mr. Estevez got some screen time. I'm also glad this episode was finally aired in the US.moreless
  • This isn't really the series finale. Right?

    Okay, The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius, is one of my favorite shows!!! What I'd like to know is that how come I'm always finding out that all my favorite shows are being canceled? There's Phil of the Future, for example. Another favorite. I don't find out about these things until it's too late! And that's not the worst part! The worst part is that Danny Phantom, the best damn show ever is going to be cancelled! *cries* And Nick having a six- month gap between episodes is just torture! (Save Danny Phantom!!!) Now, you're probably wondering what any of this has to do with Jimmy Neutron. Well, I'll tell you! Danny Phantom was created by Butch Hartman, creator of Fairly Odd Parents. (Jimmy-Timmy Power Hour trilogy) Well, the Fairly Odd Parents will be cancelled soon! Now, I want you to think about this. Why are all the good shows getting cancelled? I'll tell you. Because Nick realized that younger kids weren't paying enough attention to them. So they thought "Hey, what if we get rid of all the good stuff and replace it with crap, like Mr. Meaty?" So that's exactly what's happening. More Mr. Meaty, less fun!!!moreless

    Best in Show

    Jimmy enters Goddard in a pet contest, and because he is not a real dog, he gets disqualified. Feeling humiliated, Goddard runs away from home.



    Very good episode because they send their teachers in to space in a ship, and also Goddard runs away from home after getting disqualified; this was very good and the final episode of Jimmy Neutron. Also this episode ends such a great Nicktoon show like this one.moreless
  • I have not yet seen El Magnifico. Best in Show was okay though.

    Watch Best in show, and you'll feal worse for Goddard than ever before. After a pet show, Goddard wows the crowed, but is shunned from everyone for not being an animal and being a fancy hunk of metal.



    That night, it haunts him, and he runs away, leaving time for Jimmy to buy a real dog. He walks away, and trying to impress someone else, terrifies everyone. When Jimmy finds out, he learns Goddard has disabled any hopes of being traced.



    After being taken to be recylcled, Jimmy saves him and they go to live happily ever after. lol



    Gotta feel bad for the pooch.....at least he is happy with Jimmy now.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (7)

  • QUOTES (12)

    • Butch: (to Jimmy while holding a dog trophy) Hey, Neutron! This would be yours if you had a real dog.

    • Jimmy: I think I can track Goddard sonically by locking in on his sonar ban frequency...
      Sheen: I was just gonna suggest that! (whispers to Carl) Do you know what he's talkin' about?
      Carl: Never do, never will.

    • Mayor: For extraordinary courage in saving the life of the annoying blonde girl I award the Retroville Trophy of Honor to Goddard, a true hero, a true pet, and consarn it, a true dog.
      (Cheers and applause)
      Sheen: (Displaying his worm again) Hey, Tito just saved my life! Can I get a trophy, too?
      Mayor: You're way too near me!

    • (Carl, Sheen, and his dad are trapped in the alligator pen)
      Mr. Estevez: Son, I have something to tell you. Your friend Jimmy made this suit for me. I don't really have the superpowers. I pretended to be El Magnifico because I felt like you loved UltraLord more than me.
      Sheen: What? Don't be silly, Dad. I'll love you with my dying breath--WHICH WILL BE IN ABOUT 30 SECONDS!!!

    • Carl: (screams) ZEBRAPEDE!

    • Butch: (showing a fish in one hand) This is my jeopardy's fighting fish, Yoko.
      Corky Shimatzu: Very impressive, Butch. One question. Shouldn't he be on water?
      (indeed, the fish has breathing problems)
      Butch: I'll be right back... (runs away)

    • Carl's Stuffed Llama Doll: Let's have tea in my room!
      Carl: Shhh!!

    • Jimmy: (describing Sheen's dad to the policeman) He's about your height, but dark haired... oh, yeah, covered by armor metal plating...

    • Jimmy: Looks like my fancy machine has saved your life, Vortex.
      Cindy: Ugh... Neutron, I hate to say this, but... I-- but--
      Jimmy: What? Thanks for inventing an amazing dog? Goddard is the coolest pet in the world? I'm bitter and unhappy as others are suffering? Stop me when I say something you like...
      Cindy: Never mind! (calls Humphrey) C'mon, you mangy mutt! (walks off)

    • Carl's Stuffed Llama Doll: I'm Larry the Llama, and I love you!
      Carl: Huh? Not here, Larry!

    • Cindy: I'm winning this contest, Neutron!
      Jimmy: Yeah, you're inches to take "Most boring pet of the year"!

    • (as they're looking for Goddard)
      Sheen: Jimmy! Jimmy! There he is!
      Jimmy: Sheen, That's a tree!
      Sheen: Sorry... Oh! There he is!
      Jimmy: That's another tree!
      Sheen: There he--! Ah... No, that's a tree!
      Jimmy: That's Miss Fowl!!

  • NOTES (3)

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • Movie Reference: The Lion King
      When Sheen and Carl distract the aligator in El Magnifico by playing and dancing to hula music, it might be a reference to a scene from the 1994 Walt Disney Pictures film The Lion King, in which Timon and Pumbaa distract the heyenas in a similar way.

    • El Magnifico's suit looks a lot like the toy superhero's suit in the movie Jingle All The Way!
