Customer Reviews

The visuals for this part of the story are amazingly good.
Tom Brody
Because I just Love Jimmy Neutron I love some of the old school references and my grand kids like the animation!
Carla Johnson
The students that are not interested will clearly look at science differently and grow to love science.

All of Jimmy's adventures are extremely smart, witty & funny, not just the ones on this DVD. The characters and voices,
(except Nick, he's pretty useless) have a perfect balance in the mix of the episodes. The attention to detail in the animation and dialog is outstanding. It's a shame Jimmy is
out-shined by the likes of Toy Story and Shrek. There really is no comparison. Jimmy wins hands down. My 4 year-old nephew
introduced me to Jimmy and I've been hooked ever since.
Like I said, it's not just for kids!

I love Jimmy newtron this dvd is quite a good one my favourite episode is "trading faces" where jimmy and cindy swap bodies I love episodes like that. Jimmy creates a brain reading thing then he trys to read cindys mind over the phone then a gust of lightning hits the power box pulling there spirits out and put in to one another then they have to last a school day in one another kind of like FREAKY FRIDAY

The Jimmy Neutron cartoons concern a cluster of pre-teen friends, their bird-like school teacher, Jimmy's parents, and others. These cartoons are distinguished by their phenomenal visual details, on par with those in cartoons from PIXAR, especially, MONSTERS, INC. The Jimmy Neutron cartoons are also distinguished by their restraint, in that they rely on their own cleverness as a source of entertainment (and don't rely on chase scenes, or on making cute references to elements of pop-culture).

The Jimmy Neutron cartoons are for people of ten years old and up. The bizarre monsters, brains being taken out, and such, will be too scary for children of six and younger. Many of the Jimmy Neutron's statements about mathematics and molecular biology will only be comprehensible to people with a college education. The Jimmy Neutron series is remarkably savvy and strikingly imaginative. The characters of Jimmy's father and of Carl are an especial delight. The father is a nerd who is subserviant to his wife. Carl is a hypochondriac nerd. The characters of Nick and Sheen, and of the girls, are also well-developed.

OOZY SCAB. This starts out with Carl getting a wedgey in the classroom. Jimmy and Cindy work together on an oceanography project. Also, near the beginning, Sheen makes a moronic arithmetic calculation, where he is confused about 90,000 fathoms and 60,000 fathoms. (The character of Sheen is that of a boy who is likeable, but who is not really swift, as far as intelligence is concerned.) The quality of the ocean water, the undulating distortion of the underwater scenes, and the reflections on the windows of Jimmy Neutron's submarine, are first rate. Carl brings along his high-fat fish snacks, called FISH SNACK-UMS, in the submarine trip.

My 3yr old son is very picky when it comes to TV and won't watch alot of programs that are geared toward kids, however, he loves Jimmy Neutron. I was excited when I found this DVD and bought it immediately. He loves it! Excellent for keeping him occupied for a few minutes while I get things done around the house.

We watch Jimmy everyday of the week, my Grandson loves this show so much. He tell me which season and then which episode he wants me to put on for him, or now that he knows how to work the remote he does it himself. I recommend this series to everyone that enjoys a child that has an imagination and uses his head. Best Show Ever!!!!!

I have been a big fan of this show and others like it since it first aired in 2002, but I was disappointed that several of the episodes are missing. Episodes 16 & 17 and then 21 through 27 are all missing from Season 1. Otherwise it would have received a 5 star rating. The story revolves around Jimmy Neutron and his friends and their daily life. From saving the world from trouble, to causing the trouble and then saving everyone, this is good old fashion fun without worrying about what your children are watching. This was a short lived cartoon ( 3 seasons) although entertaining, and as usual don't expect to purchase a dvd box set. Nickeloden is just as bad as Cartoon Network about releasing popular cartoons on DVD and then never releasing the entire seasons as a box set.

Cartoons have come a long way since the days of Scooby Doo and Smurfs. No program shows this more than Jimmy Neutron - Boy Genius. Using CGI animation, the creators have made a program that's as beautiful to watch as it is entertaining. Pay special attention to the shadows as they are indicative of the level of CGI horsepower used. They are very detailed and accurate. You'll also see the ambient light change with the time of day in many episodes.

Many reviews talk about the characters and themes, so I'll leave that topic to them. I just wanted to give respect to the great CGI animation this series displays!

This is a fun series, and I'm glad that Nick expanded upon it after the first few shorts and the movie. It has some very clever humor, and just enough silliness to elicit a laugh without taking away from the intelligence of the show. There are some jokes that seem a bit forced and few innuendos I could do without, as well as some scientific liberties (though this last one adds to the show's fun at times), so not a perfect 5. But all in all, a great series, and a solid season of episodes too.
