  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Sheen: Hey, Jimmy, did your shrink ray effect birds too?
      Jimmy: No, just humans. Birds and animals remain normal sized.
      Sheen: Oh. (referring to a hawk above them) Then that cute normal sized bird is about to eat us!

    • Judy: (to Zix) Does your mother know you're doing this?
      Zix: No, but when she gets out of prison, I'll tell her.

    • Tee: (points at Carl) That one looks nice and juicy!
      Carl: (runs away scared, hides behind a stuffed chest) Please don't eat me! I'm-not-nice-and-juicy! (mumbling) Really, I'm nice... (screams and hides) BUT I'M NOT JUICY! (mumbling) Well maybe I am with a little salt and peppero--
      Zix: Not eating the merchandise!

    • Nick: (While choosing basketball teams) Shine.
      Sheen: Yes, I am so not the last guy!

    • Carl: Mmmh... I guess I could be a toy. How does this sound? (imitates a toy soldier) My name is Carl, and I want to play with you.
      Libby: That's a 10 on the creepy scale.

    • Sheen: (After hearing Jimmy's plan) What's a conscience?
      Carl: Oh, I know! It's a cute little cricket with a hat and he sings and hangs out with puppets.

    • Jimmy: (about Sheen and Carl) I really need to expand my circle of friends.

    • Cindy: Now listen, Neutron! You better--
      Carl: (imitating Mrs. Vortex's voice) Cynthia Vortex! Come over here and help your mother clean up Humprey's extremely large puppy poopoo!

    • Jimmy: (angry) Did you just called me small fry?!

    • Jimmy: (to Sheen and Carl) Everybody on Goddard!
      Ticket vendor: What about me? Take me with you!
      Jimmy: Sorry, you have to be (put his hand up to about his own height)this tall to ride my dog.

    • Butch: Okay, listen up. Time to choose up sides for B-ball. Okay, I'd like all the short kids (Jimmy, Carl and Sheen gasp) to get the heck out of the way while I pick all the tall kids! (Jimmy's, Carl's and Sheen's faces drop)

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Movie Background

      When the shrunken Judy and Hugh (Jimmy's parents) pretend to have a drive-in with the TV, the 1939 Fleischer/Paramount cartoon feature Gulliver's Travels
      plays on the TV. The scene used spoils a similarity in some of the plot later in the episode, where Gulliver picks up Gabby.

    • Reference: Music

      The background music in Jimmy's flashback about him being short is an allusion to the song "Short People" by Randy Newman.

    • Reference: Music

      When Carl was thinking about what life would be like small, the music in the background is similar to a song by the artist Outcast. The song was "Hey Ya".

    • Carl: Oh, I know! It's a cute little cricket with a hat and he sings and hangs out with puppets.

      This is a reference to Jiminy Cricket from the children's novel Pinocchio by Carlo Collodi.

    • Sheen: We aren't the kids you're lookin for!

      When Jimmy, Sheen, and Carl are hiding in a luchbox from Travoltron, Sheen says " We aren't the kids your looking for"and then says "move along". This "mind trick" that Sheen uses on Travoltron, is similiar to the mind trick, Obi-Wan Kenobi uses on some Stormtroopers in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope

    • Jimmy: I am not a toy, I'm a human being.

      This is a reference to the Elephant man with "I am not an animal".

    • Libby: (dances)

      After pushing the button, Libby does the dance from M.C. Hammer.

    • Carl: Hi, I'm Carl. Will you play with me?

      This is a spoof of Chucky's line "Hi I'm Chucky. Wanna play?"

    • Incredible Shrinking Town: Plot

      This episode has spoofs from the movie Honey, I Shrunk The Kids .

    • Incredible Shrinking Town: Title
