Western Animation: Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius
The predecessor to Nickelodeon CGI series The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius
, this 2001 movie was originally going to be simply a pilot episode for the series. Instead, the Nickelodeon
executives were so impressed they gave it funding for cinematic release.
Ten-year-old boy genius Jimmy Neutron has an IQ of 210. He invents rockets in his spare time, for launching satellites to communicate with alien races. (Of course.) Jimmy also has a robotic dog called Goddard that can do pretty much anything
, a disproportionately large head and a strange hairdo
- a fact constantly brought to the surface by his rival, Cindy Vortex. He's just living his ordinary life (get up, get his robot to do his hair for him, travel to school via gum that turns into a transportation bubble, show off his shrink ray in Show And Tell, etc.) when the communication satellite he launched at the beginning of the movie is intercepted by some egg-shaped aliens named 'The Yolkians'. (The King is voiced by Patrick Stewart
, and his brother/comic sidekick Ooblar is voiced by Martin Short.)Character Sheet
is here if wanted, but be warned - there are multiple spoilers for the series itself in there.
