Storyline

The series follows the adventures of 14-year-old Jimmy, a happy-go-lucky teen who makes it his mission to find fun everywhere he goes. This is a challenge because Jimmy lives in Miseryville, the unhappiest town around, run by the megalomaniacal Lucius Heinous the Seventh. Miseryville has one main industry: Misery Inc., purveyors of putrid products guaranteed to cause grief; and they do not come with a money back guarantee. Along with his best friends Heloise (part-time genius, full-time soul-crusher who secretly adores him) and Beezy (adventure lover, couch potato, and Jimmy's definitive best friend), Jimmy is determined to surf past all obstacles and bring his infectious enthusiasm to the whole town.

The best show of the late-2000s, but have declined terribly after Season 2
10 November 2013 | by alonsosamillanSee all my reviews

(If you're a Kid vs Kat fan who possess many sock-puppet accounts - such as beartyrone1, CoopBurtonburguer11 and bryleelewis11, who only thinks your show is the best Canadian cartoon of them all, don't read my review. You're only less than a 13-year-old fanboy)

Jimmy Two-Shoes is the mix of happiness and madness. You won't see a story like this show has for a very long time. Its sense of humour is very unique compared with other shows (specially on Season 1). I think this is the last animated series ever made with this 2000s style that have characterised cartoons for a very long time.

The characters aren't annoying nor repetitive like some shows (Kid vs. Kat a little, Fish Hooks neutral, and Breadwinners would be the worst example) and, thus, they properly connect with the main idea of what each episode offers to the viewer. This animated series is a truly treasure for TV, because it appeals with kids and adults at the same time. The voices of the characters are perfectly casted, as you would believe they are just normal people inside a screen.

I'm surprised why so much people labelled this series as some sort of SpongeBob copycat. The main protagonists of 'Jimmy Two-Shoes' are a little bit dumb, but they have a unique mission to do: make happier the citizens of Miseryville, the city where they live; on the other hand, Spongebob's own topic-as-a-show doesn't make sense and has really diverged over the past ten years. Heloise, the leading female protagonist, appears as a character who changes her behaviour all the time, from being very evil and mean (as a mad scientist with no mercy) to occasionally friendly (sometimes with Beezy —Jimmy's best friend —, often with Jimmy), or even to being so much lovely to the protagonist (Jimmy Two-Shoes) because her having a crush on him, notorious when you start getting into mid-Season 1. This haven't been seen on SpongeBob since its premiere (Sandy isn't in love with SpongeBob nor its evil), or on many shows in 2000s and current cartoons (considering the 3 characters are the main protagonists). Lucius Heinous the Seventh would be the antagonist of this show, and his role is making people of Miseryville even more miserable, or being bothered by Jimmy's happiness. Lucius role doesn't connect to Squidward, who is seen as an angry, depressive character to the point of getting full- annoying, who doesn't have an important role in the show, instead of being constantly bothered by SpongeBob and Patrick. Jimmy's concept is that of an happy-go-lucky boy who finds fun and joy even on the worst scenarios, in the most miserable and desolate place on Earth, spreading his happiness all over the city. This makes the show special, as the thematic in every episode of the show follows this trajectory. As I repeat: you'll never see a show with this concept for a very long time, at least not in the near future. There were many fans of this animated series around the world that would've wished this series to continue, because of the way "Jimmy Two-Shoes" and his friends act, in a very special way.

But every show in which its humour is good, have to decline sooner or later. That happened with this cartoon. I mean, the artists who had drawn Jimmy and the other characters in Season 2 did a very regrettable job, since the sketches were terribly done, the humour started to suck and the behaviour of the protagonists were falling down from the very first episode of that season. The new expressions of the main characters became exaggerated, and so their attitude, to the point of being seriously annoying. The series started to have no actual plot, these episodes were now consisting on lame jokes and improvised stories with no connection nor continuity to Season 1. This can be seen on Season 2 Episode 1, "Dance, Jimmy, Dance". It slowed down so bad it had to be cancelled, and the worst part is that Disney wanted to kill that show. In other countries where Jimmy Two-Shows aired as a third- party show on other networks instead of Jetix and Disney XD, (non-original channels that aired this were Nickelodeon in Latin America, Cartoon Network in Australia and Southeast Asia) or even some Disney's feeds (Disney XD in Poland, Turkey, Middle East and Africa, and Disney Channel in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria and Russia) Season 2 hasn't even aired at all, due to the bad dub Disney gave to the series in those countries, also considering the decision of low ratings the show had in most of the mentioned territories (thanks to the bad luck Jimmy Two-Shoes had because of premiering shortly before and after the Jetix rebrand to Disney XD/Disney Channel, making it a cartoon with very mixed reviews from both Jetix/Disney fans)

The show had potential, and the first 26 episodes of the series made my childhood (I was 11 turning to 12 at the time it premiered in my country), but I couldn't realise what Disney have done to the series. I didn't want to said this, but I'm glad Season 2 wasn't premiered at all in Latin America.

But one thing must to be said: Jimmy Two-Shoes will be in my heart for a very long time, since it was the last cartoon I actually enjoyed before getting into teen ages and high school. My only wish is that producers of the series would have made the right decision by not radically changing the show's plot, and giving Disney XD and Teletoon a chance for renew it.
