Episode Summary

The Egg-pire Strikes Back (1)
The Yolkians have come to earth but this time they seek out only peace and brotherhood with the people of Retroville. But while they integrate themselves into society, Jimmy Neutron suspects the worst. Who could forget how the evil egg-shaped aliens tried to sacrifice the entire adult population of Retroville to the ravenous chicken god Poultra? Everyone apparently. Just when Jimmy is about to give in and make peace like everyone else, he discovers some evidence that reveals the Yolkian's true intentions. Inventions: Burp-Powered Jet Pack, Tungsten-lined Scan-ready DNA Regenerator, X-Ray Specs, Cheese Ray, Invisible Pills.moreless

  • Okay

    This episode shows us what happened to King Goobot and Ooblar. I think this and alot of other takes with him has got to be good. I'll give a 6 for an okay job. Four fingers up, the other fingers down. I was somewhat confused as to why Paultra left them and such.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • We learn, from the view of Jimmy, Carl, and Cindy's neighborhood as the Yolkian ship flies overhead, that the Neutron's, Wheezer's and Vortex's live on a cul-de-sac.

    • If Jimmy needed to get Poultra to burp, why didn't he use his Burping Soda invention from "Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius" the movie?

    • Cindy has been in Jimmy's lab before ("Normal Boy" and "Trading Faces"), so therefore she'd most likely already know how to get in. However, it's most likely possible that her memory was erased, as we see in the second part. It's also a common situation in cartoons the lack of continuity.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Ooblar: (about Jimmy and Cindy) Do they always argue like this?
      Sheen: Yeah but deep down they really hate each other.

    • Sheen: He's like some beautiful, majestic bird ... with horrible gas....

    • Cindy: Oh, here we go. Professor Pointy Head needs everyone to know what a genius he is.
      Jimmy: Well, I'm sure you'd love to make desserts all day to keep the cotton candy in your head company!
      Cindy: You're one to talk, Mr. Chocolate Whippy Dip Head!

    • Sheen:: You know, these things wouldn't happen if you people would just wear your UltraLord Utility Belts.
      Carl: Flying metal chicken....
      Jimmy: Sheen, what's the closest thing in your UltraLord Utility Belt to a ballistic heat-seeking missile?
      Sheen: Let's see.... That would be ... this tomato.

    • Carl: Sheen, you can't mind melt with a lizard.
      Sheen: Can too! I learned it from The UltraLord Handbook. Observe. (points at lizard) Concentrate, concentrate...
      Cindy: Hey, guys! What's up?
      Sheen: AAAHH!!! TALKING LIZARD!!!
