"Welcome to Miseryville!"

Jimmy Two-Shoes (called Jimmy Cool in some regions) is a Canadian animated television series, focusing on adventure and comedy. It was created by Edward Kay and Sean Scott, and aired on Teletoon, Jetix Europe, and Disney XD.

It centers around the exploits of the eponymous Jimmy Two-Shoes, a boy who is perpetually happy and optimistic despite living in Miseryville, a miserable town populated by monsters and demons. Running the town is Lucius Heinous VII, the tiny CEO of Misery Inc, which manufactures products designed to make people miserable. Lucius loves keeping people miserable, but Jimmy is out to spread happiness all over town. His two best friends are Beezy, Lucius' not-so-evil, not-so-intelligent son, and Heloise, Lucius' top inventor who harbors a massive crush on Jimmy.

Adding to the cast are Lucius' Yes-Man servant Samy; Jimmy's pet dog Cerbee; Husky Russkie Drill Sergeant Nasty Molotov; Lucius' Rich Bitch girlfriend Jez; Beezy's usually frozen grandfather Lucius Heinous VI; kooky Cute Monster Girl Saffi (Beezy's on-and-off girlfriend); Cockney pickpocket Peep (introduced in Season 2); the devious weavils, Dr. Scientist; the Rodeo Clowns; and Heloise's pint-sized, ever-suffering assistant Dorkus. What follows is a series of wacky hijinks and hilarious if sometimes bizarre adventures.

The show follows the Two Shorts format. It had two seasons, and ended by not being renewed for a third in 2011 despite announcements for one. Nevertheless it retains a devoted, if small, fanbase.

A DvD was released in 2013 and the show won an award in the same year.

  • Egopolis: A variation: the town's name isn't affected, but all the months are named after Lucius.

  • Hartman Hips: Saffi.
    • Also Heloise. At least according to her dream in which she's a mermaid.

  • Noodle Incident: Whatever caused Heloise's "issues" with ghosts is never explained.
  • Not So Harmless Punishment: In Miseryville, being grounded means being Buried Alive.
  • The Nudifier: Heloise's trained moths in Better Sweater.
  • Odd Couple: Beezy and Heloise as a subplot in Miseryville Marathon.
  • Of Corpse He's Alive: I Am Jimmy.
  • Off Model: In Carnival Lucius, after Heloise packs up her carnival prototype, she has two mouths. Also, throughout A Hair-Brained Idea, Jimmy's nose is all the way on the edge of his head instead of being between his eyes.
    • Fridge Brilliance: Lucius's nose is on the edge of his head as well. The episode was about Lucius's horns being implanted in Jimmy's head, causing him to gradually become more and more like Lucius. Ergo, the thing with the nose must have just been part of Jimmy's "transformation".
  • Strange Minds Think Alike: In one episode, both Beezy and Lucius mention that they've "got to stop falling asleep to Ghoul FM".
    • In another, Jimmy says he doesn't like Heinous hairspray because it's not tall enough. Two monsters then walk by and say: "How do you like it?" "It'd be better if it was taller."
  • Strapped to an Operating Table
  • Strong Ants: The Gnomans.
