Trivia: Jimmy Two-Shoes

  • Actor Allusion: Beezy has an embarrassing middle name, just like Harold does.
  • Banned Episode: The episode "The Big Drip" never aired in America, because Disney found the content (which centered around Jimmy having a Potty Emergency) to be "inappropriate."
  • 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.
  • Fake Brit: Christian Potenza as Peep.
  • Fan Nickname: Before Dr. Scientist's full name was revealed in Head Will Roll, fans affectionately referred to him as Dr. Hootenstein.
  • 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.
  • Name's the Same: Colin Mochrie once used the name "Jimmy 'Two-Shoes' McClarty" as part of an Overly Preprepared Gag in Whose Line Is It Anyway? years before Jimmy Two-Shoes the character.
  • Old Shame: Possibly from Phil Postma. He worked on the designs for the infamous pilot which he described as "the real Jimmy Two-Shoes". Judging by the fact that his name is never credited in the show, it is possible he left due to displeasure at the finalized concept.
  • Older Than They Think: The Baskervilles, a show that aired in Canada and the UK during 1999 through 2000, had a remarkably similar plot.
  • Screwed by the Network: Disney XD licensed this show for distribution outside Canada, than acted like they didn't want it. It was aired early in the morning, never advertised, and new episodes from season 2 were deathslotted to 2:00 and 3:00 AM. A third season was never made, even though it was announced, because Disney XD opted out of the deal to fund it.
  • Short Run in Peru: The entire second season finished airing in the US before it even started in Canada.
  • Talking to Himself: Both Lucius VI and his son are voiced by Sean Cullen. Also interaction between Samy and Molotov is this.
  • 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 (They formed the primary population of Hell rather than Miseryville's monsters.) 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.
    • Jez was first conceptualized as Lucius' wife and Beezy's mother and early versions of Cerbee were more like an actual dog or even a three-headed one. See here.
