Not a good follow up to a great show.
Who would have thought that one of Nickelodeon's best shows would produce a spin off that is one of the network's most mediocre? I actually liked Jimmy Neutron, so I was expecting this to be decent. Instead, it's a twist in the knife to the original. Why? -The Art: Not as good as Neutron, veering a bit too much into Uncanny Valley, but still passable. -The Humor: Good at times, facepalming at others. If they did not use as much lowbrow humor, it would be fine. -The Characters: Most of the characters are actually tolerable, if underdeveloped. Our main problem comes in our protagonist, Sheen. In the original show, he was stupid, yes, but he was also fun, and developed into a great sidekick. Now? He's the moronic child of Anti Sue and Black Hole Sue, getting praised by all of Zeenu despite most of his schemes failing horribly, fixing the problem by total accident, or because the king had the same idea of destruction. I don't know: maybe I don't get the humor, and maybe Sheen is supposed to be similar to the Zeenuians. But, still. -The Plot: Repetitive and Boring. Sheen does something insane, gets away with it because of the king or something, Dorkus tries to send him back to earth. Lather, Rinse, Repeat. The worst part? The first few parts of that plot remind me so much of Ctrl Alt Del (Mary Sue Character acts like a dumbass, fixes shit by accident, and is hailed as a god-king. It's sad when a show reminds me so much of a mediocre webcomic.) Look, don't wait around to see this. There are other entertaining animated programs (Gravity Falls, Phineas And Ferb, Adventure Time) out there. Final Score: 4 out of 10.
