Trivia: Jimmy Two-Shoes

A little behind the scenes info on Jimmy Two-Shoes.

  • Development Gag: In Best Prank Ever, Jimmy briefly wears a bowtie, much like he did in the pilot mentioned below and this concept art.
    • Around the Heinous mansion, portraits of Lucius in his original suit from the pilot (which is brown-colored instead of black) can also be seen.
    • The Mysterious Mr. Ten has even more references to the concept art, with pictures of the pilot version of Heloise (who is essentially the same but with grayer, more dead-like skin) on Mr. Ten's wall.
  • Executive Meddling: The show was changed slightly from the original pitch before the final product was greenlit. However, a pilot was made containing many of the infamous original concepts, notably including Miseryville being explicitly stated as Hell, rather than just an implication. See What Could Have Been below.
  • Fandom Nod - Edward Kay has admitted that Panda-Monium was a Shout-Out to Heloise's fans.
    • "I'm successful!, I'm popular! That's right, I said popular."
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: Heloise is voiced by Tabitha St. Germain, the voice of Shana, Wysteria and Rarity.
  • Older Than They Think: The Baskervilles, a show that aired in Canada and the UK during 1999 through 2000, had a remarkably similar plot.
  • What Could Have Been: Supposedly in the show's original concept, Jimmy was going to die in the first episode and end up in Miseryville thanks to an administrative error. His Dead to Begin With status would have allowed him to do some morbid things, like pull bones out of his body (though he actually does pull the bone out of one of his arms in the episode Monster Mutt) and unscrew the top of his head. See some concept art here.
    • Heloise would have been a Serial Killer that was either hit by the same bus as him or was shot in the head by the police (it's unclear which, though both were proposed concepts), and would have been arranged to torment Jimmy, only to fall in love with him.
  • Word of God - This interview contains several insights by Edward Kay. Among them:
