Goofs

When Jimmy's sneaking out, the picture of the family is hanging on the wall, perfectly straight, halfway up the stairs and with three other pictures surrounding it. The next morning, it has moved to the top of the stairs, is slightly crooked, and the three pictures are gone. The next time it's seen, when Jimmy looks at the picture while walking up the stairs the next day, it's back in its original position and the three pictures are around it again. See more »

Quotes

[about the aliens]
Mrs. Neutron: I don't care how advanced they say they are. If your father and I haven't met them, they're strangers. Right, Hugh?
Mr. Neutron: Yeah, well, except for policemen. They're there to help you.

Seasons 1 & 2 Are Unmissable
17 October 2012 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

This is one of the greatest cartoons ever to hit television. It is all- around well-written and plotted out. I watch it now and my jaw drops at the things I used to miss when I was younger. There are subtle moments that would go right over a kid's head but those moments make the show unmistakably original. Complete with real scientific explanations behind the mishaps in the plot, James Bond parodies, and vocab words like "quip, pedantic, perspicacity," one must wonder how differently the writers think from the creators of the mindless filth we pump into our children's brains now. The first two seasons were clever and well thought-out, but the third isn't even worth a watch. Presumably, this is because their award-winning production company, DNA Productions, went defunct at the end of the third season. Hopefully, there will be a Jimmy Neutron revival, as said studio has been reformed out of the ashes.
