* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: While it may not be the greatest Nickelodeon spin off, the animation is much better than the original series.

** Doppy being Carl's doppelgänger just a cruel and mean spirited move to fans of the original show.



* SoOkayItsAverage: Even some of ''Planet Sheen's'' most vehement opponents will admit that it can get a pretty big laugh out of them every once in a while, in a way strongly resembling the refined humor of the original show. The overall consesus seems to be that while it's not really such a terrible series in its own right, it just doesn't come close to ''The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron'' in terms of quality and character charm to be considered a worthy follow-up.

* AudienceAlienatingPremise: A comic relief from a beloved show is sent to a distant planet. All of the other characters from that show are given one-time mentions at best or are downright ignored at worst. The humor relies much more on dorkiness than clever parody and you have to expect little character development. [[SarcasmMode Doesn't that sound like a great way to answer the loyal fans' constant pleading for a fourth season of the original show?]]
* DesignatedHero: Sheen has become such an obnoxious prick and not only has he forgotten his [[TheAdventuresOfJimmyNeutron best friends]], but he lies to his Zeenuian friends and doesn't seem to care that his friends are probably missing him.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: On a planet full of weirdos ruled by an easily-convinced emperor, an evil ex-advisor, and Sheen [[TookALevelInDumbass becoming dumber than he was in the original show]], Mr. Nesmith is truly a shining gem in this world, being an [[GadgeteerGenius intelligent]] [[OnlySaneMan straight ape]] and all.

--> '''Mr. Nesmith''': Sheen, don't you think we should focus on fixing the rocket so we can return to Earth instead of having a milkshake?

* AngstWhatAngst: Sheen doesn't seem to be homesick in the slightest. He keeps telling his grandma that he wants to come home, but other than that, he doesn't seem to care about never getting home. What about Jimmy? What about his father? What about Libby? What about all his friends? He never brings them up at all.

** The closest thing we get is an episode involving Ultra Lord, which is saying something, since Sheen seems to have permanently lost his obessesion with him.

* FanonDiscontinuity: Fans like to pretend this show didn't exist, for obvious reasons.

* HilariousInHindsight[=/=]FunnyAneurysmMoment: In the pilot episode, the alien announcer says, "And now, here's the star of our show ''(but not for much longer)'' Sheen!" The show itself was canned after a single season.

*FanPreferredCouple: Some fans think Aseefa would make a better love interest to Nick instead of Sheen.



* ReplacementScrappy: Name one Sheen/Libby shipper who supports Sheen and Aseefa's relationship.



* UncannyValley: The art style is odd compared to the original series.

to:

**There was also supposed to be a TV movie about Jimmy and the gang going to rescue Sheen, but it was cancelled due to low ratings, production costs and several staff members moving on. Seriously, who didn't want to the finale to be a reunion episode? Fans would've loved seeing Carl meet Doppy, Sheen and Nesmith coming back to Retroville and Jimmy and Libby having a little confrontation with Sheen after what he did (lying to his Zeenuian friends, deliberately disobeying Jimmy's specific instructions and pretty much cheating on Libby). Had the series been more successful, this most likely would've happened.

** The whole cast aside from Nesmith (and to a lesser extent, Dorkus and maaaaaybe Aseefa) can be easily despised.
* {{Sequelitis}}: The sequel to ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfJimmyNeutronBoyGenius'' that does not live up to the original.

* JerkassWoobie / UnintentionallySympathetic: Although we're obviously not supposed to root for [[BigBad Dorkus']] attempts to get rid of Sheen, it was only because his house was destroyed by the rocket from which he arrived. Dorkus' belongings may have been destroyed as well, and, as [[TheDragon Pinter]] points out, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking he just redecorated.]] Accident or not, how would you feel if someone did this to you?
** It sure works to Dorkus's advatage that he's easily one of the least annoying characters in the entire show.

* TheScrappy: As WebVideo/TheCartoonHero put it, "Why did they give a SpinOff to the one character ''nobody liked''?!"
** Truthfully, Sheen ''was'' well liked in the original show, but the {{Flanderization}} he went through here brought his character down ''big time''.
