"Time is Money" is the seventh episode of season 1.


The episode starts with Jimmy, Carl, and Sheen watching a show on TV about the brain and how it works. No one likes the show because it's boring, so Jimmy is about to change the channel, but then they see a commercial for a product called "The 1000 Volume Set of the Encyclopedia of Infinite Knowledge," which is an 1000-volume set encyclopedia that has all the information in the universe. The commercial also says that if the viewer buys the set, they get a new volume every week for 19.23 years. Jimmy decides to get the set, he tells his mom about it, and she calls, but it costs too much ($500.00).

Jimmy talks to his dad about how much he wants it and how he desires to be rich. Hugh tells Jimmy about an investment that he almost made with the owner of McSpanky's (which wasn't that famous at the time), which he ended turned down at last minute, but would have made them very wealthy had he done so. He also tells Jimmy to be thankful for what he has.

Jimmy realizes he has a time machine, so he uses it with him, Carl, and Sheen in order to go back 15 years ago in order to get Hugh to invest with McSpanky in McSpanky's Burger Factory and get that money.

Jimmy, Carl, and Sheen travel back in time 15 years. They arrive in the basement of the house, though it looks unfamiliar at first: the basement, where Jimmy's lab would later be, is a simple unfinished utility room. The three go upstairs to the living room, where they find Jimmy's parents (who appear as hippies) dancing to a groovy disco tune.

Glancing around, the kids notice numerous lava lamps, a turntable stereo, a disco ball, and a number of other items common in the 1970s. The decor of the living room is a stereotypical 1970s design: green carpeting with orange rugs, yellow wallpaper with flower designs, "PEACE" posters, and wood paneling on the other walls.

Jimmy introduces himself and his friends, claiming that they came in due to an unlocked door. Hugh and Judy don't recognize the three kids, as they don't actually exist in that time yet. Upon talking with them, Jimmy realizes that his parents aren't even married yet.

Jimmy then has a little talk with his dad, and convinces him to invest in McSpanky's. He also tells him to get "his son" the 1000 Volume Set of the Encyclopedia of Infinite Knowledge to give to him when he's older.

Jimmy, Carl, and Sheen head back to the present, and find that Hugh took Jimmy's advice and invested in McSpanky's, resulting in the Neutron family now being incredibly wealthy, with their house is now made of silver, has fancy chairs, gold bricks, solid gold statues, and even antique duck statues (probably for Hugh). Jimmy is initially very excited, but unfortunately discovers that both Hugh and Judy have been corrupted by their wealth and have become selfish and materialistic snobs who are more interested in their possessions than their son (or other family members, as shown with Hugh refusing to give his own father money for a life-saving operation purely out of stinginess), not even remembering his name. They also put down Carl and Sheen and bribe them to leave with some goldbrick. Once they leave, Judy summons Hilgo, a man-woman, to take Jimmy to his room so he will no longer pester them, and makes Goddard leave the house.

Upon entering his room, Jimmy finds that he has every volume of the 1000 Volume Set of the Encyclopedia of Infinite Knowledge, just as he wanted. Jimmy is excited for a brief moment, but quickly realizes that having the set (or being vastly wealthy in general) is not worth the cost of his parents’ unconditional love and dispensed affection, so he and Goddard go back in time to prevent Hugh from the investment, and turn the alternative world back to the original.

Jimmy and Goddard return to the present to find Hugh and Judy back to their original non-wealthy but loving good-hearted selves. Judy tells Jimmy that she and Hugh have decided that since the encyclopedia set will be beneficial to his education, they will postpone their family vacation and use the money to buy it for him. But Jimmy declines, claiming that he heard the set isn't that great, but thanks them anyway. He then asks his father what he ended up doing the huge amount of money he earned those years ago, and Hugh explains he spent it on Judy's wedding ring. The episode ends with Hugh talking endlessly about what life would be like if his family had $100.00 at the time of the investing.

  • This is the first appearance of Hilgo.
  • During the scene 15 years in the past, a pendant light fixture hangs near a zebra-skin chair and shelf of albums. This light fixture remains in the same spot beside the stairs throughout many other "present day" episodes, despite the rest of the room being largely remodeled since.
  • Hugh comments about how he loves "those three guys with the high-pitched, female-type voices". He is talking about the Bee Gees. 
  • This episode gives a possible explanation as to why Hugh's father has never appeared in the series. We learn at that time, Hugh's father needed money for a lifesaving operation. Hugh in the parallel universe coldheartedly declined to fund it, despite having more than enough money to do so, while in the actual universe, Hugh probably could not have afforded it, despite his far more kindhearted demeanor. Thus it's implied that in this universe, Hugh's father never had any means of paying for the surgery and died.
  • In “Make Room For Daddy-O" a picture of Baby Jimmy with Hugh wearing the same outfit and hairdo he had 15 years in the past is seen.
  • Rich Hugh exclaims on the phone, "He has two lungs sell them for God's sake!"
  • Hugh and Judy have been living in the same house for at least fifteen years. 
  • When the boys go to the past, it resembles the 60s and 70s, which ironic, since Retroville is supposed to resemble the 50s (as you can probably tell from the town's name) and the fact that it takes place around present time, besides the 60s and 70s fashions being different.
  • This is the first episode where Cindy and Libby don't appear.
  • This is the first episode to feature time travel
  • In this episode, Jimmy, Goddard, Carl, and Sheen travel 15 years in the past. In The Tomorrow Boys, they travel 15 years in the future.
  • Assuming the setting of this episode takes place the same year the episode premiered, which was 2002, 15 years ago would actually be 1987. It would been more accurate if the past resembles the 1980s than the 1970s. To make the time-travel destination 15 years ago take place in the 1970s, this episode would of have to taken place some time in the early 1990s. The latest date for the time machine to "work" with the story would be having the episode take place in 1994 and the time machine travel back to 1979. There might be some possibilities that this might have taken place in the 1990s.

Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius

This article is about the 2001 film. For the TV series, see The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron, Boy Genius. For the video game based on the film, see Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius (video game). For the character, see Jimmy Neutron.

2001 computer-animated film by John A. Davis

Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius is a 2001 American computer-animatedscience fiction comedy film produced by Nickelodeon Movies, O Entertainment and DNA Productions, and distributed by Paramount Pictures. The film was directed by John A. Davis and written by Davis and producer Steve Oedekerk. Its voice cast includes Debi Derryberry, Patrick Stewart, Martin Short, Rob Paulsen, and Jeffrey Garcia. The film follows the title character, a schoolboy with super-genius intelligence, who must save all of the parents of his hometown from a race of egg-like aliens known as the Yolkians.

The idea for Jimmy Neutron was first created by Davis in the 1980s, in which he wrote a script for a short film titled Runaway Rocketboy and starring a prototype character for Jimmy named Johnny Quasar. After coming across the abandoned script several years later, Davis decided that it would be a good idea to revisit it and retool it as a computer-animated short and potential TV series. A 40-second demo was animated using LightWave 3D and gained popularity at the 1995 SIGGRAPH convention where it was shown off, grabbing the attention of Oedekerk and leading DNA Productions to develop an extended TV Pilot. After a successful pitch to Nickelodeon, a 13-minute-long TV episode was developed, and Nickelodeon, impressed with both the character and the 3D technology, raised the possibility of making both a TV series and a full-length feature film. Davis, in turn, suggested that the film be made first, so that the development team could create the assets at theatrical quality and reuse them in the TV series. Production officially began in early 2000 and was completed in roughly 24 months, with the studio considerably raising its staff count and expanding its studio space. Animation was done entirely using commercial software, including LightWave and project:messiah.

Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius was released on December 21, 2001.[1] Backed by a strong pre-release campaign, the film was a box office success, grossing $103 million worldwide against a $30 million budget. It earned generally positive reviews for its animation. It was nominated for the inaugural Academy Award for Best Animated Feature in 2001, ultimately losing to Shrek. It was the only animated Nickelodeon film to be nominated in that category for nearly a decade until Rango (2011) was nominated and won.

Due to its success, the film was spun off into an animated television series called The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron, Boy Genius, which premiered on July 20, 2002 and ended on November 25, 2006. Four years later, another spin-off series (as well as a spin-off of the original) called Planet Sheen was produced, focusing on Jimmy's friend Sheen Estevez. This series premiered on October 2, 2010 and ended on February 15, 2013.

A simulator ride based on the film called Jimmy Neutron's Nicktoon Blast was set to take place after the events of the film and featured guest appearances by other Nicktoons characters. It opened at Universal Studios Florida on April 11, 2003 and closed on August 18, 2011.


Eleven-year-old boy genius Jimmy Neutron lives in Retroville with his parents, Judy and Hugh, and his robot dog, Goddard. Jimmy's friends are overweight Carl Wheezer and hyperactive Sheen Estevez, and his long-standing rival, intelligent classmate Cindy Vortex, teases him for his small stature. After Jimmy launches a communications satellite into space, hoping to contact alien life, he crashes his makeshift rocket into his house's roof, upsetting his mother. When Jimmy, Carl and Sheen learn of the opening of Retroland, an amusement park, popular kid Nick Dean convinces the boys to sneak out and attend. Judy refuses to let him attend the park that night. After his jetpack accidentally starts a fire in the house, she grounds him. Taking Nick's advice, Jimmy uses his shrink ray invention to sneak out and meets Carl and Sheen at Retroland for a night of fun.

Meanwhile, Jimmy's satellite is intercepted by the Yolkians, a race of egg-like aliens from the planet Yolkus. Their leader, King Goobot, views Jimmy's message and notices a picture featuring his parents, declaring his search complete. The Yolkians arrive on Earth and abduct all the adults in Retroville, except Miss Fowl (because of her small size after being earlier shrunken by Jimmy's shrink ray). As their ships return to space, Jimmy, Carl and Sheen mistake their departure for a shooting star, prompting Jimmy to wish their parents were gone. The next morning, all the children notice the parents are missing and party recklessly. The following day, the children are miserable and realize they need their parents. Jimmy learns that his satellite has been found and deduces the parents have been abducted. He enlists the children to create rocket ships out of Retroland's rides and they blast off into space after their families.

After braving a meteor shower and camping on an asteroid, Jimmy and company eventually reach Yolkus and find the parents with mind control devices attached to their heads. When Jimmy tries to get the mind-control helmet off of Hugh, Goobot captures them and reveals that Jimmy had led the Yolkians directly to Earth to take their parents, whom they intend to sacrifice to their god Poultra. Jimmy is separated from Goddard by Goobot's bumbling assistant, Ooblar, and is locked in a dungeon with the other children, who blame Jimmy for their predicament. Taking pity on Jimmy, Cindy confesses she and the other children need him and encourages Jimmy to fix things by helping them escape. Using a cellphone owned by Cindy's friend, Libby Folfax, Jimmy contacts Goddard, who escapes from Ooblar and frees the children.

Jimmy and company reach the Yolkians' Colosseum where a giant egg is hatched, releasing Poultra, a gigantic three-eyed alien chicken. As Goobot arranges the parents to be eaten using a mind control remote, Jimmy rallies the children to storm the colosseum and battle the guards while Sheen retrieves an escape vessel, which knocks Poultra on the head upon his return. Jimmy steals the remote from Goobot and the children escape Yolkus with the parents. Goobot arranges a fleet to pursue them, which is all destroyed when the children fly their ship around the surface of the Sun, save for Goobot's vessel. When Goobot and Ooblar mock Jimmy's short size, Jimmy charges at Goobot's ship with Goddard in a flying bike form and uses his shrink ray to enlarge himself into the size of a planet. He then blows Goobot's vessel away into an asteroid, destroying it. Goobot survives and vows revenge. On the return trip to Earth, Jimmy reconciles with his parents, admitting that despite his intelligence, he still depends on them. The next day, Jimmy and Carl have eggs in an egg cup for breakfast, when Jimmy’s parents drink one of his scientific experiments, which causes significant belching, thinking it is a real soda can. They all laugh out loud while Goddard is seen outside flying to chase a bird.

In the mid-credits scene, the still-shrunken Mrs. Fowl is seen riding on an apple worm, named Mr. Wiggles, on her way to the cafeteria in the elementary school hall.

The idea for a series about a boy with super-genius powers was first conceived in the 1980s by John A. Davis, who scripted and storyboarded a short narrative titled Runaway Rocketboy, centering around a character named Johnny Quasar (inspired by a facetious nickname that his summer co-workers had coined for him in his youth)[3] who builds a rocket ship and runs away from his parents.[4] Davis stated in an episode of the Nickelodeon Animation Podcast that he initially wrote the concept with the intention of creating it as a live-action film with special effects and matte shots, even going so far as to apply to receive a grant in order to fund the project, but found that getting such an investment was difficult since the film was not educational or informative.[3] The idea laid dormant for several years until Davis came across the abandoned script while in the process of moving.[3] Around the same time, Davis' Dallas-based studio, DNA Productions, had just begun experimenting with the use of computer animation after obtaining copies of LightWave 3D. In turn, Davis realized that the film would be fitting as a CGI film, since all of the science fiction set pieces could be entirely modeled in 3-D.[3]

Davis, alongside studio co-founder Keith Alcorn, created a 40-second proof-of-concept demo film which depicted Johnny and his robot dog, Goddard, flying through an asteroid belt and greeting the viewers. Simultaneously, Davis and Alcorn worked to create a story bible outlining a potential television series. The demo short was shown off in 1995 at the SIGGRAPH CGI convention, where it was entered into a competition for LightWave films. The demo quickly garnered notability in the computer animation industry, receiving frequent press coverage in magazines and winning two "Wavey" awards- one for Best Character Animation and another for Best in Show. Among people who caught wind of the film was Steve Oedekerk, the founder of O Entertainment, who saw a still shot of Johnny and Goddard in a CGI magazine. Oedekerk, a strong backer of computer animation, was impressed by the characters' designs – he stated in an interview that the image particularly stood out to him because it "seemed fun" compared to the mostly-photorealistic work being done with computer animation at the time.[5] He cold-called Davis requesting to see a tape of the full short. After watching the demo, as well as seeing the show bible which Davis and Alcorn had developed, Oedekerk expressed interest in helping to pitch their concept to different networks.[4][6]

After teaming up with O Entertainment, the company began working on developing a full-length episode for a TV series, titled The Adventures of Johnny Quasar, writing an expanded version of the original Runaway Rocket story and tweaking aspects of Johnny's design to make him look more like a child. In Fall 1995, the idea was pitched to Nickelodeon, who expressed immediate interest in the idea. Albie Hecht, the then-president of Nick, was particularly impressed- coining him to be "half Bart Simpson and half Albert Einstein," he strongly praised Johnny's blended personality as an adventurous and intelligent character and one grounded in the reality of childhood, which, according to him, made him "the perfect Nick kid."[5] Following positive reception, Nickelodeon commissioned for a 13-minute pilot episode to be created.[4] After several years of going through the review process, the episode began production in late 1997, and was completed in 1998. The name "Johnny Quasar" was changed at the request of Nickelodeon, who did not want the character to be confused with similarly-named ones such as Jonny Quest and Captain Quazar, so Davis brainstormed other character names while walking his dog around the neighborhood block, eventually coming up with the final name, "Jimmy Neutron."[3]

After the pilot was completed, Nickelodeon executives, who were impressed by the pilot and still enthusiastic about the show's potential, raised the prospect of creating a theatrical film to accompany the TV series, much to the surprise of Davis and his team at the studio. During the initial pitch to Nickelodeon, Oedekerk had highlighted the idea that using computer animation would allow the same models and assets to be reused between both a film and a TV show, an idea which Nick held strong faith in.[4] Davis further suggested that the feature film be created first, since the characters being modeled could be created at a higher quality than they would have with a TV budget. Although Nick was worried that it would be more difficult to attract a movie-going audience without the TV show to build an install base for the series, these concerns were answered with a series of short TV interstitials which would begin airing in order to build up hype for the upcoming film.[4][6]

With a budget of roughly $30 million, production of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius was greenlit in Fall 1999, and work began on a script for the film. Production officially started in February 2000 under the direction of Davis. In order to speed up the pace of work for a feature film, the company’s staff count was considerably increased from 30 to around 150 employees, and the studio's workspace was also reformed in order to fit such a team of filmmakers.[5] The film was completed in 24 months- roughly half that in which most other CGI films were completed.[4][6]


The screenplay for Jimmy Neutron was written by Davis and Oedekerk, as well as Rugrats show-writers David N. Weiss and J. David Stem.[6] In creating the many ideas in Jimmy Neutron, Davis and Oedekerk thought back to their childhoods, trying to think about "what a kid would create if he had the ability to create any kind of gadget."[4] The film was largely inspired by Davis' own love of science fiction which he had since childhood, drawing influence from various sources including Thunderbirds and Ray Harryhausen's stop motion work. Oedekerk's 6-year-old daughter, Zoe, came up with the idea for "burp soda," which ultimately appeared in the movie as one of Jimmy's many inventions.[4] According to Davis, the Ultralord-obsessed Sheen Estevez was inspired by Davis' own love of collecting.[3] Sheen was initially intended to be Japanese, as he was named after the nickname of a Japanese employee who had worked for Davis, but the filmmaking team had trouble finding a good Japanese voice actor. Incidentally, they changed the character's nationality to Mexican after opening the role to a broader category and eventually settling on Mexican stand-up comic Jeff Garcia.[3][7]


Jimmy Neutron was the first computer animated film to be created entirely using commercial animation programs rather than proprietary software, with most animation done using both Lightwave and project:messiah.[4] Characters were first modeled in Lightwave, after which they were rigged and animated in Messiah. Texture painting was done via Adobe Photoshop, while compositing work was completed in Maya Fusion.[5] In addition to serving as executive producer, Alcorn was the film's lead character designer, and created actively simplistic and cartoonish designs in order to avoid overcomplicating production. To animate crowd scenes, methods of simplification were used to make animation less time-consuming- characters that were farther from the camera had less articulation, and animators would duplicate the same characters, offset them to different areas, and change their body parts to differentiate them. One particular scene shows a crowd of 6000 Yolkians, each of which uses one of 30 distinct animation loops.[5]

According to Davis, the character models were intentionally given a "sculpted, graphic look," both to avoid making them look overly realistic and to circumvent the prospect of having to deal with simulating cloth or hair.[5] The over-the-top character designs, in turn, influenced the film world's aesthetic (e.g. cars were modeled to be able to fit the characters' stylistically large heads).[5] Off-the-shelf shaders were favored over ones which created more photorealistic lighting in order to maintain a cartoonish appearance throughout.[5]


Nancy Cartwright, Pamela Adlon and E. G. Daily were all considered for the role of Jimmy Neutron before Debi Derryberry was cast for the film and subsequent series. The film was Derryberry's biggest acting role at the time, as previously she had mostly provided minor roles in films and TV shows.[8]


Official soundtrack[edit]

The movie soundtrack was released by Zomba Music, Jive Records, and Nick Records on November 20, 2001, a month prior to the film's release.[9][10] It includes covers of DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince's "Parents Just Don't Understand", Thomas Dolby's "She Blinded Me With Science" , and Kim Wilde's "Kids In America".

Theatrical release[edit]

Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius was released in theaters on December 21, 2001,[1] by Paramount Pictures.

Home media[edit]

Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius was released on VHS and DVD by Paramount Home Entertainment on July 2, 2002.[11][12] It was re-released on DVD on June 22, 2011 and re-released again on DVD on April 25, 2017. The film has yet to be released on Blu-ray.

Film promotion[edit]

These shorts were used to promote the film. They have all been released on the official Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius DVD release of the film. All of the inventions in each short were seen again at some point on the television series (except for the Pain-Transference helmet). Clips from similar versions of these shorts, along with clips from the unaired "Runaway Rocketboy" pilot, appeared in the teaser trailer for Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius. The biggest difference between the clips seen in the trailer and the original shorts is that Jimmy wears the white and red striped shirt he wore in the pilot, rather than his trademark shirt.


Short Overview
"Carl Squared" Carl asks Jimmy many questions when he clones himself. The cloning machine is seen again in "Send in the Clones" and "The Trouble with Clones".
"Calling All Aliens" (Parts 1-5) Jimmy receives a message, thinking that it is from aliens. But when he says "school Goddard", he gets teleported to school. He tries several attempts to try to communicate with the aliens. Aliens are also mentioned in Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius. It serves as the prologue to the movie.
"Cookie Time" Jimmy has a remote control that controls time. He asks his mom for a cookie and gets it. He keeps rewinding but Goddard bites the remote and sends them back to the prehistoric era. The remote is seen again in "Sorry, Wrong Era".
"Hyper Corn" Jimmy invents his HyperCube, to store infinite items in one small place. But, it is dinner time and they are having creamed corn, which Jimmy hides in his Hyper Cube. After Jimmy's dad thinks it is a brain teaser puzzle and breaks it, Jimmy finds out that he likes it after all. The Hyper Cube makes appearances in the episodes "Hypno Birthday to You" and "Holly Jolly Jimmy", although it looks different from in the original short.
"New Dog, Old Tricks" Jimmy introduces his robotic dog, Goddard, to Cindy and her dog, Humphrey, who Cindy says is the best dog in Retroville. However, after showing each other new tricks, Goddard wins the argument. Humphrey makes brief cameos in other episodes. Note: A clip from a slightly different version of this short appeared in the original theatrical trailer for Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius. This version ends with Goddard putting himself back together when Jimmy says, "Good boy Goddard."
"Pain Pain Go Away" Jimmy visits Dr. Pane, the dentist, using his Pain-Transference Helmet to transfer the pain to Cindy. He gets in trouble, though, when Cindy snatches the helmet the next day and retaliates by injuring herself and sending the pain to Jimmy.
"Sea Minus" Jimmy accidentally uses his Matter Transporter to move the Neutron's House underwater! The Matter Transporter is seen again in "My Son, the Hamster".
"Ultralord vs. The Squirrels" Sheen gets his new Ultralord Action Figure in a tree. Jimmy must get it back with his Hypno Ray invention to keep it away from the squirrels. The Hypno Ray is seen again in "Hypno Birthday to You". Note: A clip from a slightly different version of this short appeared in the original theatrical trailer for Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius. In the trailer version, the scenes take place in the park, rather than in Jimmy's backyard, while Sheen is replaced by Nick Dean.


Critical response[edit]

Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius received generally positive reviews from critics and audiences. On Rotten Tomatoes, the film has an approval rating of 74% based on 76 reviews, with an average rating of 6.40/10. The critics' consensus reads: "What Jimmy Neutron lacks in computer animation, it makes up for in charm and cleverness."[13] According to Metacritic, the film has a weighted average score of 65 out of 100 based on 21 reviews, indicating "generally favorable reviews".[14]

Rita Kempley of Washington Post praised the film, saying that "this little charmer both celebrates and kids the corny conventions of family sitcoms". Nell Minow of Common Sense Media enjoyed the "stylish 3-D computer animation, good characters", giving the film 3 out of 5 stars.[15] Owen Gleiberman of Entertainment Weekly gave this film a grade of "B+", calling it "a lickety-split, madly packed, roller-coaster entertainment that might almost have been designed to make you scared of how much smarter your kids are than you".[16] Paul Tatara of CNN.com called the film "the most delightfully original children's film of 2001".[17]Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times gave the film three stars out of four, saying that "it doesn't have the little in-jokes that make Shrek and Monsters, Inc. fun for grown-ups. But adults who appreciate the art of animation may enjoy the look of the picture".[18]

Box office[edit]

The film was financially successful, grossing $13,833,228 on its opening weekend in third place behind The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring and Ocean's Eleven and ended up with a total of $80,936,232 domestically, and the film did better overseas grossing $22,056,304 which made a total of $102,992,536 worldwide. It had a budget of roughly $30 million. It is one of only twelve feature films to be released in over 3,000 theaters and still improve on its box office performance in its second weekend, increasing 8.7% from $13,832,786 to $15,035,649.[19]


Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius was nominated for the first Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, losing to Shrek. It was the first release from Nickelodeon Movies to receive an Academy Award nomination.

Expanded franchise[edit]

Cancelled sequel and possible reboot film plans[edit]

In February 2002, a sequel was reported in development for a summer 2004 release. Producer Albie Hecht reported to The Los Angeles Times that the sequel "would be made on the same budget as the first, but with a new batch of inventions and adventures in Jimmy's town of Retroville."[20] On June 20, 2002, The Hollywood Reporter reported that writer Kate Boutilier had signed a writing deal with Nickelodeon Movies and Paramount Pictures to write a sequel to the film, but the sequel never materialized.[21] The film was cancelled because the writers could not agree on a story and Alcorn later stated in an interview that "once the TV series came out, there wasn't a lot of incentive to make a movie when fans could simply watch Jimmy Neutron for free at home."[22]

In 2016, director John A. Davis stated that he has a story for a Jimmy Neutron reboot feature that he would like to make, but he is waiting for the "right situation" to make it.[23]

When asked about a reboot in 2020, Rob Paulsen stated "Well, I've got to tell you, man. I go all over the world when we don't have the coronavirus, and people love Carl. They love Carl. I don't think it would be a bad thing at all to reboot Jimmy Neutron. I think that's one of those shows that a lot of people would love to see again. It was very good. Really smart. That wouldn't surprise me."[24]

Television series spin-offs[edit]

Due to the film's successful box office performance, it led to a spin-off television series The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron, Boy Genius, that ran from July 2002 to November 2006. Four years later, another spin-off series (as well as a spin-off of the original) titled Planet Sheen, focusing on Sheen Estevez, ran from October 2, 2010 to February 15, 2013.

Other media[edit]

Genius, Sheenius or Inbetweenius[edit]

An event that aired on May 19, 2007, Nickelodeon rehired Debi Derryberry, Jeffrey Garcia and Rob Paulsen to return for a special audio commentary version of the film that features their animated counterparts' silhouettes, spoofing Mystery Science Theater 3000.

Theme Park Attraction[edit]

A simulator ride called Jimmy Neutron's Nicktoon Blast opened at Universal Studios Florida on April 4, 2003 and was operated until August 18, 2011. It was set to take place after the events of the film and featured guest appearances by other Nicktoons characters.

Next transcript: Raise The Oozy Scab Transcript

The following is a transcript of the episode Time is Money.

Opening scene- Jimmy Carl and Sheen are in the Neutron living room the TV is playing an educational program. Jimmy is fascinated while Carl is falling asleep and Sheen is deeply bored as he halfheartedly plays with his Ultra Lord action figure. Even the host of the show on the TV it bored and lifeless as he presents the information.

TV: -deep breath- and that concluded the first tenth of our very long discussion of the electrometric balance in the left hemisphere of the brain.

The man holds up a brain as he speaks.

Jimmy: Oh haha, who would’ve thought the frontal lobe would’ve had that much influence over the corpus callosum, huh?

Carl: Not me.

Sheen: Me neither, hey Jimmy, you think you could come up with an invention you know that changes the channel? Yunno? I don’t know maybe like-um I don’t know a remote control!

Carl: Yeah, Jim, like this is informative and all but I think id rather be covered in bees -inhaler puff- and I’m allergic.

Sheen: Well it wasn’t all painful Jimmy; I liked the part about the medulla oblongata. I don’t know what it means. But I love the way it sounds.

He jumps off the couch and starts thrusting his action figure forward.

Sheen: -In a deeper voice- Back! Or I will slay thee with my medulla oblongata!

Jimmy: What do you guys wanna watch?

Sheen: Ultra Lord!

Carl: I’m pretty much good with anything that’s not this.

Jimmy: Alright.

Jimmy picks up the remote to change the change. However, a peppy man on the screen stops him.

TV: Don’t touch that dial! What would you say if I told you, you could harness all the information in the universe?

Jimmy: All of it?

TV: Tha-ha-ha-ha-at’s right!

Jimmy looks at the camera in surprise.

TV: You can possess infinite knowledge and it’s all right here in the new one thousand volume set of the encyclopedia of infinite knowledge?

Jimmy looks transfixed by the idea. The man on screen is now behind a wall of giant encyclopedias.

TV: What ancient civilization built an entire royal palace from shredded wheat? What species of all can be milked like a cow? Where is waldo! Tha-at’s right! One thousand volumes.

The camera cuts back to Jimmy and he’s still deeply interested.

TV: Just order now and you’ll receive a new volume every week for nineteen point two-three years! The encyclopedia of infinite knowledge! Order now o-o-or you’re an idiot!

The man gives two thumbs up and Jimmy’s jaw is practically on the floor.

Jimmy: Wow! Did you guys see that?

Carl and Sheen are not paying attention, Carl is looking off in the distance but is quickly shook out of it by Sheen flying Ultra Lord close to his face and then shaking it next to his nose.

Jimmy: There’s never been encyclopedia like that Ever! I’ve gotta have it.

Sheen is playing with Ultra Lord still just fiddling with the buttons and features on him.

Sheen: That’s so crazy because I so don’t want it.

Jimmy: Sorry guys I gotta go talk to my mom right now!

Carl looks at Sheen and Sheen just rolls his eyes.

Jimmy walks out of the living room and goes to the kitchen where his mother is. She dials the number.

Judy: Hi I’m calling about the encyclopedia? Yes.

Jimmy is standing in front of her grinning ear to ear looking excited

Judy: And how much is the set? Oh, Hm my uh well thank you anyway.

She hangs up. Jimmy realizing what’s happened walks away. He goes to his father next who is repairing a model of a duck. The head is on backward and he’s trying to take it off. They’re both in the garage. Hugh is in front of the workbench and Jimmy is sitting on a tabletop surface. He yearns to be tall.

Hugh: Eh well Jimmy your mother sort of keeps track of the finances and I -the duck head pops off- don’t

Jimmy: Dad their educational encyclopedias are an investment.

Hugh: Yeah but they make my brain… twitch-uh. Now what you want to do Jimmy is, be thankful for the things you already have. Look we all. Want things. Would I like to have a six-foot duck sculpture with a year’s supply of free pie? -Intense voice- you bet you I would. -Normal voice- but we don’t have that kind of money.

Jimmy: Oh, I wish we were rich.

Hugh: Oh well there was time Jim when that wish was almost a reality. You know years ago I almost invested in McSpanky’s burger factory.

Jimmy: McSpanky’s? really?

Hugh: Sure, fifteen years ago I picked up a scruffy-looking McSpanky on the side of the road. He didn’t have a penny to his name told me all about this grand scheme he had; An assembly line of hard little tasteless burger patties to the masses. Disguising them with inexpensive condiments and yummy buns. He offered me a full partnership for fifty dollars of startup money and a back rub.

Jimmy: And you didn’t do it?

Hugh: Well Jimmy I almost did it. But then decided to use that money for a more… important reason.

Jimmy makes a face of disgust at his father’s reasoning.

Hugh: Man has to have his priorities.

Jimmy: Aah!

Jimmy jumps down from the table frustrated.

Jimmy: I need money is what I need.

As Jimmy walks out Hugh shakes his head.

Later Jimmy is in the shed above his lab sitting on the couch in there with Goddard by his side.

Jimmy: Ah gee Goddard it’s not fair! I wish I could go back in time and convince him to invest in McS-

He freezes an idea hitting him, he jumps off of his couch.

Jimmy: Wait that’s it. If we go back in time, I can convince dad to invest in McSpanky’s, and then we’ll have all the money we’ll ever need!

Scene change- Jimmy is in his lab with both Carl and Sheen.

Jimmy: Gentlemen, I give you, the time booth! Just punch in the time and visit the period of your choosing! Go on step inside.

Carl cautious half steps inside.

Carl: Uhm has this thing been tested by an independent laboratory?

Sheen: H-who cares Carl!

He steps in corralling Carl further in the time booth.

Sheen: Where we going, Jimmy?

Jimmy: Okay my dad said he met Hank McSpanky fifteen years ago. So I’ll just set this to fifteen years in the past and we’ll just-

Carl: Hold the phone, you mean McSpanky’s burger factory McSpanky?

Sheen: That’s my favorite place in the whole wide world!

Jimmy: Okay enough you guys. We’re ready for the maiden voyage.

Both: Maiden voyage?

Sheen: You’re bringing a girl with us?

Jimmy shakes his head at Sheen, and the time booth erupts with light, before finally settling in a dark empty concrete room.

Sheen: Wow the past is so, dark!

Carl: It’s spooky.

Jimmy: No guys the lab used to be a basement.

Jimmy starts walking forward and towards the stairs out of the basement, Sheen and Carl follow behind taking in the scene.

Jimmy: We did it! We went back fifteen years in time.

Upstairs music is playing in the living room. And when Jimmy, Carl, and Sheen peek their heads in the room there are lava lamps, a record playing, a disco ball, and a zebra printed couch to name a few of the decor changes. Hugh is dancing in the center of the room hair in an Afro, with pink-tinted glasses and a white suit with a huge collar.

Young Hugh: Yeah! I just love those three guys with a high pitched female-type voice! (sings) Ah aha ah lights here we are!

Judy walks up to him, her hair is flatter and not curled at the bottom, she’s wearing tiny sunglasses and a wraparound headband, as well as a brown shirt and skirt combo that has a chunky belt situated on her hips just offset at an angle.

Young Hugh: Check out the new moves, sugar booger, I call it the monkey grinder.

He starts to mime a grinding motion with his hand in the air while making a groaning sound.

Young Judy; Oh Hugh! You are so groovy! Grind that monkey!

Young Hugh: I’m grinding the chimp too!

Young Judy: Ooh oh!

The guys who’d been watching in horror the entire time face one another.

Carl: Jimmy can we please go back to the present? The past is kinda dorky.

Jimmy: N-not yet Carl, I’ve gotta convince Dad to invest in McSpanky.

The younger Hugh and Judy continue to dance, Jimmy walks up to them, Carl and Sheen aren’t far behind him.

Jimmy: Mom? Dad?

Young Judy: -Gasp-

Young Hugh: Hey you cats don’t live here… do you?

Young Judy: How did you get in here?

Jimmy: -To Carl and Sheen- of course, they don’t know me we don’t exist yet.

Sheen: -To Jimmy- Would you let me handle this? -To Young Hugh and Judy- We come from the future!

Young Judy and Hugh: -Gasp-

Jimmy: No, no, ha ha.

Jimmy covers Sheen's mouth

Jimmy: You know, what he means the door, the door was open, so we just uh-

Sheen: Came inside?

Carl: Yeah, your crib.

Jimmy: Uh I’m Jimmy, and these are my friends, Carl and Sheen

He gestures to them both in turn.

Carl: Hi platobaraniptco -snort-

Carl has his hand in Vulcan salute from Star Trek.

Young Judy: Oh Jimmy uh, I love that name.

Young Hugh: Hehehe-eh that’s quite a wild size noggin ya got going there, son. You’re like a Maude eh, buffalo headed boy. Now look I’m all for freedom buffalo boy but you guys! You can’t just go busting’ into a cool cat's bachelor pad.

Jimmy: Bachelor pad!? You mean you two aren’t married yet.

Judy gives Hugh a look

Young Hugh: Marriage is for the older scene man, besides Judy-cakes only lives five minutes from here. And Hugh doggy-dogs’ a free spirit! We let love rule, the wind is our minister and true love is our chapel. Ah.

Judy leans forward snapping her fingers.

Young Judy: Oh Hugh-bee!

She runs forward and hugs Hugh. Carl makes a face in response

Carl: Ew! Make it stop Jimmy! I’m-

Carl gags into his hand. Judy moves slightly out of her hug with Hugh.

Young Judy: You seem familiar somehow buffalo boy. Are you one of Hugh-bee Dooby’s neighbors?

Jimmy: Hugh-bee Dooby, yeah, we live down the street and um -to Hugh only- Listen can I talk to you for a minute in private?

After Jimmy pulls him aside Hugh is playing with his hair watching and feeling it jiggle as he goofs off with it. They’re sitting on the zebra print couch.

Jimmy: Listen I know we just met and all but you have to trust me on this one. Now when you meet a man named Hank McSpanky.

Young Hugh: Oh you mean the smelly hobo with the funny eye?

Hugh rotates his eye.

Jimmy: You know him!

Young Hugh: Yeah, I just gave him a ride the other day. McSpanky’s got some wacky burger scheme that he wants me to invest my last fifty dollars in, but I-

Jimmy: Hey, hey, do it.

Young Hugh: What?

Jimmy: Invest, invest in McSpanky’s burger factory.

Young Hugh: I-I did consider it but there’s something very special I’m planning on using that money for. A man has to have his priorities.

Hugh winks at Jimmy

Jimmy: Listen, listen, DA- uh Hugh. Hugh-bee dooby do?

Young Hugh: Hey, hey, hey, only the chicks can call me that.

Jimmy: Sorry, you’ve got to invest! McSpanky’s burger factory is going to be huge and you’ll be rich!

Hugh looks like he’s tuning Jimmy out as he head bobs to the music.

Jimmy: Oh, oh, and when you’re older and have a son, make sure you get him the one thousand volume set of the encyclopedia of infinite knowledge.

Disbelieving Hugh gives Jimmy a face.

Jimmy: Gotta go!

Scene Change- the guys return to the present, and the lab looks exactly the same as before.

Carl: Haha we’re back!

Sheen: Yeah bu-but everything looks the same…

Jimmy: Well maybe he didn’t take my advice? Come on.

The guys get to the main out and to their shock and surprise the house interior is entirely different. It’s got white marble floors and smooth sleek architecture. There is a giant fireplace display and a massive statue of a duck holding up a shiny globe of the earth. And just in the center of the room is two high backed black chairs trimmed with gold, sitting between the chairs is a lamp and a stack of gold blocks.

Sheen: Uh Jimmy, I think he took your advice.

Jimmy: Ha! We’re rich! We’re really rich!

As he talks gold duck statues and the bars of gold get zoomed in on.

Carl: We’re rich!

Sheen: Uh Carl Jimmy’s rich not us.

Carl: Oh Okay.

Jimmy walks up to the high-backed chairs where his parents are sitting.

Rich Hugh: It’s the principle of the thing.

Rich Judy: I know!

Jimmy: Uh Mom? Dad?

As Jimmy walks around to the front of the chairs it is  revealed that his parents are dressed in fancy clothes, their hair is sleeker and pulled back. Hugh is wearing a three-piece maroon suit with a white popped collar and a gold tie. While Judy is wearing a black hat covered in shiny buttons or rhinestones, and a pale dress that has a belt and a large collar. Neither of them are talking to one another; They both are on their cellphones.

Rich Hugh: I don’t care if he is my, dad, lifesaving operations are expensive. I mean it’s my money after all. If I give him some I’ll have less.

Sheen pokes Judy on her hand slightly.

Rich Judy: Ow be careful! That’s my credit card hand!

Jimmy: Mom! Dad!

Rich Judy: What!

Rich Hugh: Yeah what?

Jimmy: Well- uh how are you guys?

He smiles at the couple, but they just look at him coldly behind their sunglasses before they both start talking at the same time.

Rich Hugh: I mean he’s still got two lungs! Sell one for gosh sake-

Rich Judy: I still won’t make up my mind, I just said-

Jimmy: Hey, hey, hey, come on I’m your son and wel-

Rich Judy: Point?

Jimmy: Huh?

Rich Hugh: Tick-tock, tick-tock, oops looks like you just wasted another chunk of my life, Thanks a lot, Jerry.

Rich Judy: It’s, Gary.

Jimmy: It’s Jimmy!

Rich Hugh: Whatever we don’t have time for this kind of-eh talking thing you want to do.

Judy spots Carl and Sheen and her lip curls.

Rich Judy: And what are they, doing here. The big one is, odd. And the thin one is, a weirdo.

Sheen who was pointing and laughing at Carl stops at the mention of an insult directed towards him.

Carl: Hey! You can’t insult us like that!

Hugh lifts a gold bar with one hand and tosses it to them, it falls with a loud clatter.

Rich Hugh: -dismissively- Here you go buy yourself something nice.

Sheen picks it up with a struggle.

Sheen: Sure, they can, let’s go, odd guy!

Carl: -snort- You got it weirdo.

Rich Hugh: Oh, and here’s some for you too. Buh-bye now.

Hugh plops another gold bar into Jimmy’s hands, Jimmy staggers trying to hold it.

Jimmy: What do I do with this?

Rich Judy: Oh, for heaven’s sake!

Judy rings a small bell.

Rich Judy: Hilgo!

Jimmy: Hilgo?

The camera slowly pans up to show a very tall muscular lady with a gruff unhappy expression.

Rich Judy: Hilgo, could you take Jimmy up to his room? He’s being all-eh, son-ish again.

Hilgo: Ja.

Hilgo goes cross-eyes as she says it. Goddard walks in the room and sits obediently. As all of this occurs Jimmy is trying to hide behind Hugh’s chair.  

Rich Judy: Oh and get that contraption out of here. You know I don’t like it in the house.

Hilgo: Ja.

She goes cross-eyed again and then grabs Jimmy with on hand. Jimmy is quickly deposited into his room, at first while jimmy is tenderly rubbing his butt because of the jolting fall his room looks identical to the one from the first timeline. But then he spy’s something. And entire large bookcase filled with hundreds of the encyclopedias of infinite knowledge. The bookcase is at least five or four shelves high and fits into a corner.

At first, Jimmy is excited smiling at the display of knowledge but his face quickly falls at the realization of the real price for the books. Goddard comes flying into Jimmy’s bedroom via the window and his propeller ears.

Jimmy: Ooh, what happened Goddard? I thought being rich would be great. But Mom and Dad are- well they’re not Mom and Dad… come on Goddard.

He gets up off the floor and Goddard follows behind.

Scene change he’s in his lab which is awash with a red glow.

Jimmy: Let’s get Dad’s fifty bucks back.

He inputs information into the time booth, and it starts flashing and whizzing. Him and Goddard disappear in a flash of light, the living room then also flashes in a bright white, the high backed chairs and giant fireplace get replaced with the old living room from the original timeline. The smaller more modest fireplace is back, the many open windows, and the green, blue, and pink color palette all return.

Jimmy ducks his head around the living room doorway and spots his dad. Hugh is Examining his recently repaired wooden duck figure, he holds it up to Jimmy.

Hugh: What do you think Jim-a-lin?

Jimmy: That’s just about the greatest thing I’ve ever seen!

Jimmy hops up onto the pink family couch with a smile.

Hugh: It’s a Montana worm snuffer!

Judy: Well look here! It’s my favorite men!

She kisses Jimmy on his head.

Judy: Jimmy your father and I had a talk and we’ve decided that as long as it’s for your education we’re going to postpone our family vacation. And use that money to order you, your encyclopedia set.

Hugh who’d been frowning before at the mention of it still hums in agreement.

Jimmy: Ah you know what I’m over that, I-I heard it’s not that great anyway. But thanks though.

Hugh: Ho ho that was close!

Judy: -Whispered- Hugh!

Hugh: Eh of course it would have been for a very uh- worthy cause.

Judy: Yes.

Jimmy: Uh dad? Can I just ask you a question?

Hugh: Hm?

Jimmy: Well that fifty dollars you didn’t invest with McSpanky, what did you spend it on?

Hugh: Ha ha, well son, I spent it on your mother's wedding ring.

Judy: Hmm and it was all the money your father had to his name!

She examines the ring and the band flashes in the light.

Hugh: You see it's about having your priorities in order son.

Everyone smiles gently in silence.

Hugh: But man, if I had a hundred dollars at the time! we’d be loaded right now! Ducks everywhere! We’d live in Quaker town! And I’d would require every member of Quaker town to have webbed feet and a duckbill! I would go to the doctor myself and have the webbed-

The music fades in and the episode ends on Judy gently holding Jimmy’s hand as they watch Hugh exuberantly and excitedly rant about what he’d do with that money.

End Card.
