Jimmy Neutron wasn't like most other Nicktoons in it's time. It was the first CGI cartoon Nickelodeon had, and it was good. Also, Jimmy Neutron is the only cartoon I know of where the writers actually put effort into making a geniu's lines sound real. Jimmy used REAL science terms, and REAL science methods, to make this show make sense. But I'll wait to tell you the rest of my compliments of this show until I adress the few problems.
Problem #1 Ideas- This problem was actually randomly found throughout the whole series. Not all plots, but some, were a little uninspired, and bland. However, most of these bland plots were given a little twist my Jimmy to make them somewhat refreshing. This problem isn't huge, but it's there. For example, in one episode, Jimmy, Cindy, Sheen, and Carl go out to search for a legendary "sea monster" that was terrorizing there town. This is one of my least favorite episodes, because it felt awkward and uninspired. Like I said though, this is very rare in the show, and it's very likely you won't run into it.
Problem #2 Voices- Ok, I'll admit, some of the voices in this show are nutty. Nutty like, annoying the crap out of you. For example, Miss Fowel, the kids teacher. She was supposed to have the voice of some kind of bird, and she always like, put her arms together like a bird. Her voice was somewhat unbearable. Luckily, she wasn't in to many episodes, but some. It was very rough and screechy, and sent goosebumps down myy back. >.< Another strangley-voiced character is Carl. At some points, his voice is very funny and perfectly fitting for the show. At other points, though, Carl strechted words and just seems stupid. This happens mainly in the newer ones. However, it's good that Carl's voice is in the show, because it does fit in a good way. Try to ignore these voices, and the show is bearable, in fact, great.
Now, let's get down with the good stuffs. :]
Compliment #1 Character Variety- Especially in modern TV shows today, (both kid and adult) the show seems to be dominant towards one gender. For example, while watching Disney Channel, there's only about two or three shows that the whole family can enjoy. Others, like Zeke and Luther, or Zack and Cody, are leaned towards males. And shows like Shake it Up!, and Hannah Montana, are leaned towards females. But in Jimmy Nuetron, there is a colorful cast of both boys and girls. Even though the three main characters are all boys, the main girls, Cindy and Libby, pop up in almost every episode, usually with major roles. The show gives all genders a dose of comedy and drama, which leads me into my next compliment.
Compliment #2 Genre Blending- Like Avatar: The Last Airbender, Jimmy Neutron has a good blend of drama, action, and adventure. Even sometimes, the show throws in a little "kid-friendly" horror. It all works well together. If your wondering, action can be found throuout the series, drama can be found more near the ending of the show, "horror" is mainly in the beggining of the series, and comedy, (which is exceptinol), can be found throughout the whole thing.
Compliment #3 Effort Into Charatcers- You can tell when you here the many charatcers talk, that the writers did thier homework. Jimmy says actual science terms and methods, and dosent bore you either. In fact, it's quite funny when he says his complex plans. Sheen just sounds plain dumb, in a good way. He talks about action figures alot, and he sounds like he's really into it. Carl constantly refers to body parts that he isn't good with, or injured, or something like that. He constantly refers to his "scabula" which is hilarious even after the 10th time. Cindy's voice actor is spectacular, with her emotion always wonderful. Libby has a good knowledge of music, and says all kinds of things about "funk". Its cool. The charatcers (unlike LOTS of cartoons) say the exact right thing at the exact time.
Compliment #4 Inventions- The inventions in this show many times serve as the substance of the whole conflict in the episode. They are usually wonderful. The inventions constantly change characters, or take them to exotic places where we've never dreamed of. This is almost opposite of Phineas and Ferb, where they're building cliche things like rollercoasters, or haunted houses.
So, overall, if you counted, there's way more compliments flooding this show than problems, and there minor ones anyway. No matter who you are, young, fat, old, stupid, bored, ugly, skinny, beautiful, odds are, you'll get a kick out of Nickelodeon's genius show about a genius kid.
**NOTE: The opinions stated in this reveiw are refering to Jimmy Neutron only, and not it's spin-off Planet Sheen.***
Unlike \\\"The Fairly Oddparents\\\" a show I used to love, \\\"Jimmy Neutron\\\" just gets better and better with time. The characterizations and relationships have a depth one wouldn\\\'t normally expect in a Nicktoon, the CGI is impeccable, better than in some bigscreen CGI toons, and the writing is superb. Plus it\\\'s funny, imaginative and original. A toon for the ages. I can\\\'t believe Nick is ordering more FOP (garbage) and not ordering more JN (a feast for the eyes, brain and heart) this season. JN is a toon for the ages, an instant classic! And we want more~!
Did you like sci-fi and adventure series that you would love to see in a series? There were two places to go, Dexter's Laboratory or Jimmy Neutron. At the time Dexter's Laboratory had gotten so much people interested in sci-fi animated series that when the series fell apart in its revived moments, Jimmy Neutron was created at that same time, and it gained so much attention to it's clever plots, great humor, and SPECTACULAR animation provided by DNA Productions. Jimmy Neutron is close to being the greatest Nicktoon ever created, you could watch it forever. I was incredibly dissapointed in the cancellation of this show, but hey, at least they made a sequel...you know...Planet Sheen...Got our hopes up a bit during the pilot episode am I right?
Yep. I used to like this series but now it's just like: Why the heck did I start watching it. First of all, it's extremely predictable. Jimmy messes up something then has to do something to make it right, which he does. And along the way the writers try to jam in some jokes but let's face it: They're not good jokes. They're just old bathroom jokes and annoying ones that Sheen and Carl use like every single episode. Second, I agree with Chowder23, the Jimmy and Cindy relationship is so dumb. They don't really deserve each other and it's shown in like almost every single new episode. And the really corny moments in the episodes,"Stranded" "Lady sings the news" and "Vanishing Act" sometimes it can be so cheesy well especially in Stranded because for some reason when on the island they want to express their likeness for each other. So stupid.
Oh, and Jimmy Neutron, himself is so darn annoying. I hate him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I was a fan of Jimmy Neutron's original movie, so I was more than happy to give the actual show a chance. And for the most part, I wasn't disappointed.
This show could be over-the-top, but in a way that wasn't annoying. Jimmy was indeed a genius, but at the same time, his inventions could cause as much harm as good. Furthermore, Jimmy would take responsibility and try to fix the problems he caused in the first place, even when some people, or even half the town, were against him.
The other characters had their good points, too. Carl and Sheen were entertaining (much more than Sheen is in his new show, which I don't think is even on anymore), and Jimmy's parents had their good points as well. They were both quirky, but in a way that wasn't unbearable to watch. And then there's the girls; namely, Cindy. I thought the love-hate relationship between her and Jimmy was interesting, but it was pretty much inevitable that they ended up together. Either way, I definitely liked Cindy and Libby as friends with Jimmy, Carl, and Sheen instead of antagonists. Speaking of which, the antagonists of the show (like Professor Calamitous and Eustace Strych) were both threatening and funny to watch, so that was fun, too.
Sure, the show had its faults. And it was pretty clear that it was running down by the end of its run. But even so, "Jimmy Neutron" is definitely one of those shows that needs to be shown on Nick in reruns. And I don't mean the occasional showing of the "Jimmy/Timmy Power Hour" episodes.
This show, is one of the greatest moments of cartoon history.
Plot: James Isaac Neutron, a child prodigy, has alot of inventions! He tests it in some situations, some are really good, some fail. But he fixes the problem by using his Super brain! One think, Brainblast!
Characters: Good, there are some downsides, but not too much. The characters here are annoyingly funny.
Humor: Good, some are a little cryptic and not much of a laugh.
Art: Great animation and 3d art. I am wondering why they can't maintain this kind of 3d art. Most of the 3d cartoons we have today in the TV sucks.
Overall: 8. I still miss this show, it good to chew on when there's nothing to do.
Jimmy neutron is the best show what I ever seen before.. until now i still hope Jimmy neutron make a new season (season 4). there are many big fans of Jimmy Neutron. you can see from the high rating in nickelodeon.we are really miss Jimmy neutron :(
The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron Boy Genius is a 3-D cartoon based on a Sucessful smash hit movie, that everyone can enjoy, Most likely people said it's the best 3-D cartoon ever made, but it's still good and I rather watch a Diffrent show.
My 26th review after a stupid toddler show on cartoon network: "Peppa Pig"
This cartoon is decent at best. It's about a smart 10 year old boy named Jimmy Neutron. He has his own labatory in his backyard shed, (Silmaur to Dexter's Labatory which his lab is behind his bookcase in his room) He has two best friends known as Carl and Sheen. His netrual rivals, Cindy and Libby, and they go on Scince Adventures. Now for the Grade. I will give this show a B. although the score's pretty low but I'll still give it a good grade. now the results:
Voice-acting: B 7.5/10.0 Good. That's all I have to say.
Animation: C+ 6.8 /10.0 Kinda the same Animation as Donkey kong Country but with better Graphics.
Graphics: A++ 10.0/10.0 Ah, yes. The Graphics are Perfect for a great 3-D cartoon.
Dialouge: C- 5.9/10.0 There some brain-dead scripts in the series but still fun to watch.
Sound: A+ 9.0/10.0 The Music and sound effects are perfectly superb. That's all.
Lasting Appeal: A 8.4/10.0 This can be fun like I said before to a lot of nicktoon fans, and will be entertained in a lot of epiosdes.
Overall: B 6.6/10.0 One of the better best cartoons to premire on nick, but I rather watch a diffrent show like Dexter's Labatory. I will review that show soon, So Stay tuned with BlueMario1016's TV cartoon and Show Reviews!
I miss Jimmy too! This is Mike Gasaway. I was a Director on Jimmy Neutron. I have been working on some new material and would love your input. Check me out on www.gasmangroup.com. My new character's name is Mikey the Vampire Monkey! Hope to see all of you soon!
I dont watch the The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius,that much i watch it once a week maybe even once a month.anyway this shows still intresting the characters are funny not all of them some are,some of the characters are driving me nuts.It still doesnt stop me from watching The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius.
Jimmy Neutron was one of my favorite Nickelodeon animated series. It's a shame it was cancelled. I guess the one good thing that came of it, though, was that it ended before the writers had to result to more unrealistic, corny episode plots like Spongebob Squarepants and the Fairly OddParents. The characters: Jimmy. For a guy that almost knows it all, he's not cocky at all and I actually like him. Sheen, I love, especially the guy that voices him. Carl, who is like the Chuckie on "Rugrats", kind of got on my nerves though with his timidity. However, his love for Jimmy's mom was a little funny. Jimmy's father was hilarious. The two girls that star in the show are Cindy Vortex and Libby Folfax. Cindy is Jimmy's rival but they still have feelings for each other. I hated Cindy, but I liked Libby who Sheen had a crush on. She sometimes showed her appreciation, which I liked. And don't forget the beloved Goddard, Jimmy's robot dog who he made and loved. Every episode usually revolved around one of Jimmy's inventions proving to be helpful but ending in disaster. When the invention was doing good, people liked him. When they didn't, people disliked him. However, I will always like Jimmy Neutron, one of the underrated animated series of the millennium, that deserves to be aired more on TV.
What can i say? This show is an awesome show on Nick. It's really funny, awesome, but I does have one problem. Sometimes this show got bizzaree. Well this show is way better,than Planet Sheen. But I'm kind of sad that Planet Sheen wasn't better, but I'll give all my thoughts about Planet Sheen when I review it one time. Now the movies of this show are really awesome, they're even better than the show. Now the movie are tru geniuses. Now the best movie by far is when Jimmy's parents get kidnapped so he and his friends go to a planet to save them. I watch that movie a lot when I was a kid. Now I wish this show is still airing because I miss this show and my two brothers miss this show. But however this show isn't that best animated show on Nick. Hey Arnold is still the #1 best Nick animated show, but I'll say how much I love it when I get the time to review that show. Now there is another problem with this show and its the romance. Now it works in the movies but not in this show. And I hate the scenes where Jimmy is flirting with that blonde girl. I forgot her name. Well this all I have to say about this show. Overall 9.5/10.
Now some people say that this show is bad and its for little kids, but I think its cool for all ages. The only problem I have for this show is that Jimmy and that blonde girls(who i forgot her name.) Jimmy tries to get the blonde girl to like her is kind of annoying and old. But sadly it dosen't come on Nick anymore and i'm disappointed about it. But the new episodes are better than the old episodes by far!! Overall 9,5/10.
I love how all the characters contribute to the comedy of the show.
Jimmy's dimwitted father and intelligent and Beautiful mom add to the show's great cast. Jimmy's experiments cause mayhem but at least he's not trying to take over the world like some Geniuses.
Even though Jimmy is a goodguy he is like a mad scientist because his experiments cause problems. Sure he has problems with his social skills which makes him a nerd. I don't consider intelligence to be a sign of nerdiness only a lack of social skills makes a person a nerd.
Jimmy is less nerdy than Carl and Sheen. Sheen is a bigger nerd than Jimmy despite not being as smart as Jimmy.
Cindy is a character I hate and like at the same time. On the one hand she's spunky and smart but she can be a real witch at times.
The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius follows Jimmy Neutron, his faithful robotic dog, Goddard, and his eclectic friends and family as they experience life in Retroville. Jimmy is a typical kid, who just happens to be a genius. He creates gadgets to improve his everyday life, but his inventions go awry more often than not, and hilarious trouble ensues.
This show isbasicallya Nicktoon version of Dexter's Lab. They both relied on science fiction and centered a kid as a main character. Anyway, I enjoyed this show. It was not the best science fiction show ever, but the plot was superb. The only negative stuff is the romance between Jimmy and Cindy. I am not a huge fan of them as relationships. They better off as friends/rivals. The characters are really hilarious especially Carl, Sheen, Jimmy's dad (Hugo), and a couple others I forgot. Season 1 and 2 were my favorite seasons. Season 3- not sure if have seen all of those episodes from that season. Overall this show was superb. It is better than its spinoff Planet Sheen. I don't really hate the spinoff (I don't like it either though), but I thought Sheen is a bit better on this show than on his own show. 9/10
This show is about boy genius, Jimmy Neutron, and his adventures in life and with his friends, Carl and Sheen. I liked the first couple of seasons of the show, they were, for the most part, very solid with decent humor an well thought-out storylines. I also liked many of the characters (Sheen is my favorite because I have friends who are just like him) but the last season I feel, was weak. It was mostly tv movies or overly extended episodes. Also, I feel the show changed from Jimmy being a smart dude who got out of many situations, to Jimmy the boy genius with a ton of evil enemies. So, overall I think the first couple of seasons are solid, but the last one was very weak, and thats why the score isn't higher. 8/10 B-
Around 2001,Nickelodeon made a short called Jimmy Neutron and then a movie. Then,they made a TV show out of it. Jimmy Neutron is about a boy genius named Jimmy Neutron who goes on adventures,builds machines and faces bad guys with his friends Sheen and Carl. It ends up being great. Now,this was basically Nickelodeon's first CGI show (I think),but this was when CGI wasn't overused. First off,all the characters are great. Jimmy is smart,but isn'r getting constantly bullied. Carl is always shy and depressed,and his obsession of Llamas are funny. Sheen is a complete moron who only cares for a hero named Ultra-Lord,but is funny. Cindy is the only problem with the show. She's a selfish jerk to Jimmy,is such a show-off,and thinks girls are better than boys. Well now,Jimmy is friends with her,and will even fall in love with her. Libby,however,is a lot better than Cindy,since she is less of a jerk than Cindy. Hugh,Jimmy's dad,is a hilrailous dad who cares too much for ducks. Also,some of the villains like Professor Calamitous and The aliens from A Beautiful Mine are great at what they do. I also love some of Jimmy's inventions,like the shrink ray or the ray that turns things into cheese. However,this show got canceled after 4 years. Wow,another great show already cancelled. But then,after 4 years off the air,we get the stupid spin-off known as Planet Sheen. Seriously,bring this show back and cancel Planet Sheen.
Well... remember the good times of "Jimmy Neutron: Boy Neutron" before Nickelodeon decided to air that crappy and horrifying cartoon "Planet Sheen". Yeah, this show is FAR more better than "Planet Sheen". While this cartoon isn't my favorite cartoon, it was GOOD to watch. To me, it's not a great, superb, or perfect cartoon but it's just good... just good. However, this cartoon is my mom's favorite cartoon to watch on Nickelodeon and I remember she would always watch the new episodes of this cartoon with me because she just loves this cartoon. She still misses this cartoon and tells me sometimes how much she misses this cartoon. "The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius" and "Hey Arnold" are both my mom's favorite Nickelodeon cartoons and she misses them so much. Anyways, let's get back to my opinion of this show now.... it is a good cartoon but it does lack something. First of all, romance is really sweet in movies BUT do they really have to put romance in this cartoon. Seriously? romance is in a cartoon is just not right to look at. I mean, it's fine if we see hearts and all that innocent stuff on cartoons kinda like some of the SpongeBob episodes but kissing and all that stuff plus the kids are young. The other huge problems with this cartoon is that it rips off a few things from movies such as the episode "The N-Men". Seriously? they ripped that title from "X-Men" such Jimmy as the Incredible Hulk. Also, the episode with Carl and his parents not having allergies and they're jumping high like the Incredible Hulk is not original. We also get a James Bond rip-off (except without the British accent) such as the episode "My Big Fat Spy Wedding" and all those episodes that rip off from movies sometimes. That's probably my biggest problem with this cartoon. Cindy can also get on my nerves teasing Jimmy especially on the Season 1 (the earlier season), she just annoys me. Also, Carolyn Lawrence who voices as Sandy Cheeks in "SpongeBob SquarePants" is the voice of Cindy in this cartoon which is pretty cool. Although, Carl and Sheen are the ones who definitely keep me entertained and make me laugh very hard. Hugh (Jimmy's dad) also just cracks me up especially with his obsession of ducks. Some of the episodes in this episode are just gosh darn random and hilarious and this cartoon is entertaining. Overall, this cartoon is good but it has a few things that I don't find original and I could enjoy it more if it weren't for some of the rip off episodes from movies..... it is a GOOD cartoon for the most part. 7.5/10
Jimmy Neutron was a great show, based on an amazingly smart boy and his friends,whom get into trouble doing things like using Jimmy's inventions and whatnot. This usually ends in Jimmy using even more inventions or science of his to save the day. This show always had a funny or exciting storyline to it, which I absolutely loved about the show. The very first movie is what drew my attention the most, and is probably one of my all time favorite nickelodeon movies yet. This all leads me to believe the spinoff show will be a hit, as were previous Jimmy - featured shows.
This show was a real classic and is really not getting the attention it should.this was Alcorn's best "invention" and sheen is just hilarious in jimmy neutron(but not planet sheen.)I wish they would air a 4th season or at least end it with a better season finale.I'm a fan on the Jimmy and Timmy thing to!They should bring back this fantastic show and cancel Planet Sheen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. I'm also into the Jimmy Cindy thing!its about a nerd names jimmy neutron who lives in Retroville Texas.He secretly has a crush on Cindy Vortex.He is a boy genius and always makes these cool inventions,but they always go wrong and jimmy and his friends has to save his town from sure destruction.And people who say this is a cheap rip off of Dexter's Laboratory ur wrong.they are so different.Beside Jimmy Neutron was WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYY better than Dexter!!!!!!! The show also has a cool theme song:
The adventures of jimmy netron,Boy genius, With a not so genius animation and a not so genuis plot in every episode. i used to think this show was a great example of a funny, Awsome show but now it's just, Great. i think this show could have a better plot, With more "Genius" Scenes. I still enjoy the show myself but, Would young kids even, Get it? This is like most the animations i've ben watching latly, Slitly overrated, Still good for older children and teenagers. I still like this show, And i still think it's funny, And cool. Still, Aren't kids suppose to enjoy it?
Ok... let me start.... well, this show is just flat out bad, the episodes are like mindless, the commedy is mild, and is quite childish, I hate the dumb cliche idea of a big headed kid being a genius, its like Dexter's lab all over again.... gah! The story has already been done, enough with it! And besides, who cares about some genius kid? The idea is out of style and lame. His friends are completely obnoxious too. I don't like the fact that his dad is a complete moron too, where did he get the genius from then? Before I keep ranting on and on. This show is bad, end of story.
Jimmy neutron is a good show it really is. It started off pretty good as the show went on we see good character development for each character some adventures are plain wierd turning you're grandma into a baby, Carl getting pregnent ect. Well there also funny to see the characters interact sheen is a complete ultra lord geek but is funny cause of it carl is scary though he's in love with jimmy's mother Judy and depises Hugh her husband well he's a also a lama lover and he's about alergect to everything. Jimmy the main character like dexter but he has a life no offence though he's smart but all most all the time his inventions go wrong. Cindy rival and love life to jimmy at the first seasons they are constantly fighting over the title of the smart one in the school but later they began developing a relationship. Liby a music loving dancing friend to cindy not always loyal but still a friend to cindy she is seen singing and hanging out with cindy Well as for everything else I didn't mention watch the show but sadly you missed a lot end of reveiw.
Jimmy Neutron is a fantastic show which focuses about a 10 year old boy(i am guessing his age) named Jimmy Neutron who invents things and his two friends Carl and Sheen and there other friends Cindy and Libby i all though do not support the Jimmy and Cindy couple also this show is like Dexter's Lab so people can not grow up to be idiots by watching this fantastic show kids today will grow up with this show like we grew up with Dexter but Dexter is better but anyway this show rocks and deserves a 1.0 rating i thank the creator who ever made this show i have'nt seen the movie though i will soon though.
