Trivia / The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius

  • Accidentally Accurate: Despite coasting along on Rule of Cool, the show sometimes got something right even when the writers obviously weren't even aiming for accuracy. One such highlight occured in Sorry, Wrong Era when Jimmy shattered the big diamond in an attempt to break off a chunk small enough for his jury-rigged Bamboo Technology time-warping device. Diamond, while certainly the hardest natural substance on earth, is also brittle enough to shatter using little more than a hammer, chisel, and a little bit of precision.
  • Actor Allusion:
    • Jimmy once refers to Carl as Rob.
    • Sam's Verbal Tic ("Yeah!") is a reference to The Weird Al Show, where in the first Adventures of Fatman segment, Billy West played Al's Evil Uncle Frank, who plotted to flood the city and loot it using melted ice cream; the voice and tic was carried over from Frank. DNA Productions, before getting into 3D animation, animated the Fatman segments.
  • Bowdlerization: In the episode When Pants Attack, Cindy's exposed underwear is treated no differently than that of Jimmy, Carl, and Sheen. In the book version, however, she is the only one of the four to undergo Scenery Censor; first with a bush, then a sign. Whether intentional or not, the illustrations give the impression that she isn't wearing any underwear at all.
  • Cross-Dressing Voices:
    • Debbie Derryberry as Jimmy.
    • Also, Candi Milo as resident bad boy Nick.
  • Early Draft Tie In: The game for Attack Of The Twonkies uses Cindy's design from the movie instead of her older looking, pigtail-less design from the actual series.
  • He Also Did: Mark DeCarlo, voice of Hugh Neutron, was a lot winner on the 1980s NBC run of Sale Of The Century, hosted the relationship game show Studs in the early 90s, and cuurently appears on ABC's The Chew.
  • Recursive Adaptation: Attack of the Twonkies- originally a spinoff game- got its own special that majorly diluted the game's plot. The twonkies became a Canon Immigrant after this, appearing every now and then as an Easter Egg.
  • The Other Darrin: King Goobot was voiced by Patrick Stewart in the theatrical film and by S. Scott Bullock in the tv show.
  • Troubled Production: "We just didn't have the time or money to care."
