Radar: The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius
When you're as smart as Jimmy Neutron, you're bound to know one or two things you probably shouldn't. Sometimes, a savvy older viewer can pick up on some things that can fly right over the target audience's head. Examples of such instances include:
In the special "Operation Jet Fusion", Jimmy gathers his parents to tell them a "secret they can't tell anyone." And Jimmy's dad asks if it's about Carl.
They did mistake his bully problem for a girl problem in an earlier episode.
When Carl and Sheen are fighting over Beautiful Gorgeous's affections, Carl says that she'll like him best because, "I'm built for comfort and not for speed!"
In "Crime Sheen Investigation", after putting Cindy through a lie detector test, Jimmy tells Soddard to X-ray Cindy's clothes. She smacks him in response.
There is also Sheen's excited expression when that was suggested, and Carl hides behind his notepad.
In the AlienParody Episode "Who's Your Mommy," Carl attempts to take a sample of a strange alien pod, when it bursts open and a facehugger slathers him in the face, which causes him to get pregnant, and he goes through several symptoms of female pregnancy.
In the episode "King of Mars," when Goddard's battery was dry and they needed a way to move, Cindy came up with using Carl's stretch pants as a wind sail. When Carl protested, Jimmy said, "Carl, pants off. Now."
Speaking of which, in the first episode, the entire main cast spent a huge portion of the day without anypants on.
The TV special "Win, Lose, Kaboom!" is full of Parental Bonus. Two moments that stand out are a commercial that we only overhear advertising "Quiznoc’s tentacle lubricant," and Judy putting on a television channel that likely shows porn (judging from the music) for her and Hugh before they turn off the lights.
Lest we forget this infamous exchange from Brobot, which deconstructs the Fridge Logic of a 10-year-old genius with an extensive knowledge of human biology when Jimmy tells his parents that he wants a baby brother.
Hugh: (Spit Take) Baby making is very... complicated, believe me.
Jimmy: Dad, Dad, it's not complicated. Really, really, it's —
Hugh: That's enough! OK! Ha ha, I want pie! Anyone else want pie? I want pie!
Carl: "This can't be real, but I know I'm not dreaming...if I was, there'd be llamas in it, and Jimmy's mom's.........COOKIES, JIMMY'S MOM'S COOKIES!!" He didn't stop short at 'Jimmy's mom' and then tack on the 's' for the sake of the cookies; he specifically said 'Jimmy's mom's".
Although he could just have meant moms plural. Which is just as funny.
On Halloween, Principal Willoughby reminisces about dressing up in the past, talking about how he was Peter Pan seven times and such. But then he mentions that one year he went as Michelangelo's ''David,'' and remarks, "Woo! That one was chilly!"
Jimmy using, among other things, scantily-clad women to try and win the school election. (Carl even refers to them as such.)
In "Granny Baby", Sheen mistakes a bra for an Ultra-Lord Double Barrel Slingshot.
Don't forget these gems.
Judy Neutron: (after seeing Hugh try to lift their luggage) Oh no you don't, Mr. Muscles. If you hurt your back lifting those, you'll be no use to me tonight on our third honeymoon, (Jimmy walks into the room) when I want all the hotel room furniture rearranged.
Granny Neutron: (after being turned into a baby) I'm topless! (covers self)
Jimmy: Where'd you get the diaper?
Granny: I was already wearing it!
In "Fowl Bull" Goddard gives Jimmy Iron-plated Undies and it's implied he rubs his bottom with talcum powder.
In The Tomorrow Boys" the flower that Jimmy experimented on promptly gives Cop-bot the finger when he arrives to Jimmy's lab in the past.
