Episode Summary

Who Framed Jimmy?: Jimmy is framed for a break in at the Retroville Bank. When Carl and Sheen attempt to free him from his incarceration, the three boys end up on a chain gang together. In order to get to town and prove Jimmy’s innocence, the boys must race through the backwoods of Retroville chained to each other with the warden Bueford Lee Stormshuckle in hot pursuit. Flippy: Hugh Neutron is taking up ventriloquism again, and he’s making plans to show off his new skills, and his new puppet Flippy at Lindbergh Elementary’s career day. Jimmy is convinced that his father’s poor puppet show will only lead to total embarrassment, so he implants a chip into Flippy that will draw comedy directly from Hugh’s brain. When Hugh finally performs for everyone, his puppet acts like it has a mind of its own. But Jimmy soon learns that this was no act - Flippy has actually come to life, and he’s absorbing every ounce of Hugh’s brain power.moreless

  • I thought it was okay...

    Hmmm let's see now i thought it was an okay ep. cuz noting really good did happen exept that Jimmy went inside Cindy's room. I thought it was also pretty funny when Sheen asked Cindy if her karate suit were her pj's and she got totally mad at sheen for that, and also when Sheen mentioned "Ohh were in a girls room." and Jimmy couln't help but smile with Carl and Sheen.moreless
  • I wish my name is Bueford Lee Stormshuckle...

    I loved this episode. As far JN goes, it's not usually a comediac show, but that doesn't mean there aren't any laughs. Who Framed Jimmy was absolutely hilarious, like when Carl and Sheen brought the drill book instead of a drill. Comic genius! Also the bear sequence, Yokel, the banjo boy and Sheen trying to turn in Carl and Jimmy were awesome scenes, too. Flippy was another real good episode. This was more JN, having tension, an interesting plot, a weird villian with a very thorough plan and of course, several stupid people. It really was interesting to see what happened in it, as Flipp's plan was really good, and there didn't seem to be any holes. But when in cartoon Rome, do as all cartoons do!moreless
  • Jimmy get framed and hugh gets a new dummy...

    Who Framed Jimmy - The Retroville bank gets robbed and Jimmy is the prime suspect, now jimmy must solve the crime and prove his innocence.

    This episode was a little bit of a spoof to who framed Roger Rabbit, both jimmy and roger where both accused of a crime that they did not commit and both tryed to prove their innocinece... A great episode

    Flippy - Hugh trys to take up ventriloquism again and has a new Flippy puppet, and Jimmy's afraid that his Dad's joke will embarass him he he implants a chip into flippy that hooks with hugh;s brain and is suppose to make him funny. The bad part is Flippy starts draining Hughs brain so he can become alive.

    This episode reminided me of Slappy the dummy for the night of the living dummy series which is a part of Ghoosebumps.... this episode was well-written.moreless
  • Loads of screwball comedy in these eps.

    In 'Who Framed Jimmy Neutron', Jimmy gets framed for stealing money by a criminal who went into his lab, and Jimmy gets arrested and sentenced to do garden work. So, they all try and get away and catch the criminal, but get chased by a big forest bear! They eventually escape and end up at Cindy's house, and Jimmy wants to turn Jimmy back in! Jimmy tries to convince Cindy not to, but she calls the police and Jimmy gets caught again. But then Jimmy discovers who framed him, the fat man in charge of the work they had to do! And they prove it because on the dollars that were stolen the George Washington blinks when you hold up up to a light! The man gets arrested and Jimmy and his friends are set free. It was an exciting, halirious episode taht made me watch it well. I couldn't take my eyes of the screen when the bear was chasing them.

    In 'Flippy' Jimmy uses a Funny Chip to make his dad funny, and soon he's entertaining kids in Jimmy's school with a crazy-looking puppet called Flippy. But the funny chip causes the puppet to suck the life and energy out of Hugh, and now the pupet can control himself! Jimmy, of course tries to catch Flippy when it escapes to cause chaos, and realises that the puppet is just like Hugh and likes ducks! This distracts Flippy and he is able to catch him. But Flippy may return some day!

    Two wonderful episodes I thought were quite good. Not as good as others episodes, but still a very good one. 8.6 for two halirious capers.moreless

  • NOTES (1)


    • Plot
      Jimmy and his friends are forced to work on a chain gang, overseen by Stormshuckle, who wears sunglasses. This may be a reference to the film Cool Hand Luke, where the title character is arrested and forced to work on a chain gang, overseen by Boss Godfrey, a man who wears sunglasses and never says a word the whole movie. Both Luke and Jimmy try to escape the gang.

    • Title screen music: Who Frammed Jimmy

      The music on the title screen on this episode is similar to the TV show Cops. The theme song is "Bad Boys".

    • Character: Bueford Lee Stormshuckle

      This character is a spoof of a sheriff of the movie Smokey and the Bandit his name was Bueford T. Justice.

    • Scene: Bear Chase

      While a bear chases Jimmy, Carl and Sheen, there are some spoofs to the show The Benny Hill Show, like the running gags or Carl patting a bald in the head.

    • Scene: Trash Picking

      This scene is similar to the movie Cool Hand Luke, especially when Jimmy, Carl, and Sheen refer to the warden as "boss" whenever they ask to do something.

    • Hugh and Flippy: Characters

      Hugh and Flippy kinda resembles the Batman villains Ventriloquist and Scarface. Flippy talks loudly like Scarface and Hugh gust keeps quiet like Ventriloquist

    • Flippy: Character

      Flippy is based on the book Goosebumps: "Night of the Living Dummy" by R.L Stine. Or he could be based off of Chucky from the horror movie Child's Play.

    • Who Framed Jimmy: Title

      "Who Framed Jimmy" is a reference to Who Framed Roger Rabbit.
