YMMV / Jimmy Two-Shoes

  • Alternative Character Interpretation:
    • Is Jimmy really as nice as he seems? He is in what is essentially a cartoon version of Hell, and he can be a bit crazy sometimes.
    • Is Beezy really such a nice guy either? Sure, he's not actively malicious like his dad, but he carries the Jerkass Ball an awful lot and is often a Poisonous Friend to Jimmy. Maybe he isn't quite the failure of a Heinous that Lucius takes him as.
    • Does Heloise have a secret sweet side? Despite being extremely callous and cruel to pretty much everyone, Heloise's crush on Jimmy seems to say otherwise.
  • Badass Decay: Heloise. How else would a Tiny Tyrannical Girl and Enfante Terrible like her end becoming one of the show's biggest Butt Monkeys in Season 2?
  • Base-Breaking Character: Beezy is a Creator's Pet to some fans (due to his frequency of carrying the Jerkass Ball and getting away with it, not to mention his stupidity is aggravating to some), while other fans like him just as much as the other characters (just as many fans find him to be actually quite funny and he can be a pretty nice guy at times).
  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: Ghostsmackers features a Misery Inc commercial with no effect on the plot.
  • Counterpart Comparison:
    • Jimmy can be compared to characters like SpongeBob, Lazlo, and Wander as an All-Loving Idiot Hero with a bright outlook on life and a fun-loving nature. Wouldn't be too hard to imagine any of the them as friends.
    • Beezy carries traits from characters such as Patrick Star or Heffer Wolfe. Like Patrick, he's a lazy moron who makes Jimmy look far smarter in comparison. Like Heffer, he's a Big Eater who lives under the care of his dad despite being old enough to take care of himself. Like both, he's a shirtless Fat Best Friend.
    • Heloise is like Mandy and Gaz. All three are evil genius little girls who serve as the more sensible one to the male character (Jimmy, Billy, Dib) from a Black Comedy cartoon.
    • It's easy to parallel Lucius with Lord Hater, since they're both Ineffectual Sympathetic Evil Overlords who revel in negative emotions (misery and hate), act like children sometimes, are quite incompetent due to their haughtiness, and are constantly driven up the wall by a happy-go-lucky Idiot Hero.
  • Crack Pairing: The most popular is Heloise/Lucius. In fact, one of the most well-known and well-written fanfics of the show is based on this premise.
    • A hilarious In-Universe example — Samy and a Grugly Beastnote  in "Jimmy, Don't be a Hero"
    Samy: Call me! We'll do dinner! *sigh* He's never gonna call...
  • Crazy Awesome: Saffi. She is practically Izzy of TDI in monster form! It helps that both shows were made by Teletoon. Heloise too.
  • Crossover Ship: There's a small fanbase for Heloise/Kick Buttowski.
  • Cult Classic: Although nowhere near as popular or well-known as Total Drama , Jimmy Two-Shoes is (for the most part) one of the more well-regarded modern Canadian cartoons on the Internet with a small but dedicated fanbase waiting for a revival. The troperiffic nature of the show on this website is proof enough of its fans' love for the show.
  • Dark Fic: Lends itself to this rather well.
  • Draco in Leather Pants:
    • Lucius gets this amongst those who think of him as a Jerkass Woobie, despite the fact that he is a tyrant who takes joy in the suffering of others.
    • Heloise even more so due to her crush on Jimmy, frequently showing her (not too well-hidden) sweet side.
  • Ear Worm: The second season theme.
    • Call you up / Do you wanna go? / I know it's late, but I need a date for the show...note 
    • The season 1 opening is pretty catchy too.
    • The titular musical number in "Everyone can Whistle"
  • Ensemble Darkhorse:
    • Saffi. She's cute, crazy, and a great romantic partner for Beezy.
    • Peep, for being one of the primary reasons to watch Season 2 episodes.
    • Apple (the Winged Humanoid Recurring Extra) became very popular in the fandom for her Cute Monster Girl design. Her role in "Scent of a Heinous" increased the popularity tenfold.
    • Lucius I is quite popular with fans, due to his reputation as The Dreaded despite never appearing on-screen.
  • Evil Is Cool: Heloise - the most popular character in the show as well as the most sadistic and cruel.
  • Evil Is Sexy: Heloise again. She's got quite her share of fanboys too. Two words: Mermaid Heloise.
  • Fan-Preferred Couple: Jimmy and Heloise, of course! See any episode with Heloise (particularly the later ones) and it'll be easy to see why.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: One of the few Canadian cartoons with a decent-sized American fanbase (but like so many Canadian cartoons, it also has a significant hatedom in America). Though its short run and harsh treatment by the networks keeps it from being as well-known as say...Johnny Test.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: A scene in Jimmy in the Big House is funnier after the season two episode Heloise, Schmeloise where Heloise mention that "if Jimmy were to like a girl would her name rhyme with Schemloise?"
  • Ho Yay: Tons.
    • Foe Yay: See the show's page for Ho Yay for Jimmy/Lucius examples.
  • Humor Dissonance: Some of Jimmy's jokes can be this for some viewers. Lampshaded by Lucius in "The Mysterious Mr. Ten", an episode that provides some examples of this trope at work.
  • Idiot Plot: Several episodes, like Air Force None and Lucius Lost. Mostly for Rule of Funny though.
  • Jerkass Woobie: Considering his upbringing, Lucius could be interpreted as this.
  • Launcher of a Thousand Ships: Heloise. This can be probably attributed to being the only female character in the main cast.
  • Magnificent Bitch: Heloise. Lucius tries to be the male version of this trope.
  • Moe: Heloise. To quote a YouTube comment: "Isn't Heloise the cutest little sociopath you've ever seen". Jimmy's adorkable nature makes him one too.
  • Nausea Fuel: Lucius forces Samy to eat crud in "Spew-Tube". Thankfully, it's coloured blue to lessen this, but still...ew.
  • Nightmare Fuel:
    • Heloise ripping off a waitress skin and wearing it as a disguise.
    • Heloise in general can be pretty scary, considering her sheer sadism. No wonder everyone is Miseryville is so scared of her. See the Slasher Smile she makes in "Spew Tube" for example.
    • Jimmy stalking Lucius in his sleep in "Jimmy, Don't Be a Hero" — "Friends watch friends sleep." Also doubles as a Funny Moment though.
  • Periphery Demographic: Not as big as other cartoons, but still notable in comparison to cartoons as obscure as it is.
  • Robo Ship: A canon example occurs with Jimmy and Heloise's Robot Me, Schmeloise.
  • Seasonal Rot: Some say the second season isn't at good as the first. The animation and the writing of how smart characters should be (including fan favorite Heloise), has taken an unfortunate and noticeably negative downfall in Season 2.
  • Self-Fanservice:
    • Heloise receives alot of fanart of her as a very sexy full-grown woman.
    • Saffi appears to get it even more so than Heloise (especially when it comes to Saffi's backside).
  • Squick: Lucius only has one pair of underpants. And he only washes them once every six months.
  • Tear Jerker: The scene in Heloise, Schmeloise where Heloise is ripping up her Stalker Shrine to Jimmy.
  • They Copied It, So It Sucks: As well-liked as the show is on some corners of the Internet (eg: this very wiki), it does have a a good-sized hatedom in others those who see it as a Spongebob Squarepants ripoff (or those who just hate Canadian cartoons).
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Character: Saffi. Such an awesome character, became an Ensemble Darkhorse, all happening while having a relationship with Beezy... then an episode in season 2 reveals that Beezy broke up with her. We never see her again as a major character.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: A heavily contested example amongst fans is whether the infamous pilot concept was one. Some believe that the final results were much more interesting than the Darker and Edgier pilot, while others contend that the pilot was the better idea.
  • Ugly Cute: Beezy, though many other Miseryvillians could qualify for this due to the simplistic designs. Samy and Cerbee are two good examples.
  • Uncanny Valley: Some of the character's facial expressions in season 2 are quite unsettling due to the drop in animation quality.
  • Uncertain Audience: The pilot is perhaps the darkest idea for a kid's cartoon ever done. Thankfully, the final result toned down the darkness.
  • What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs?: The second season was...really strange compared to the first season thanks to being Denser and Wackier. Not to say that the first season was without its weirdness.
