"Just another day in the life of Jimmy Nutrin!"

"Inspired by a dream I had."
— (seinfeldspitstain's description of the video)

Jimmy Neutron Happy Family Happy Hour is a short video by YouTube user seinfeldspitstain. It involves a perfectly normal day in Jimmy Neutron's life. To say anything else would spoil it, besides the fact that it is now comfortably viral with over ten million views, so watch it here. It's only a minute long.


  • Abusive Parents: Hugh does not hold back at holding Jimmy at gunpoint.
  • Ac CENT Upon The Wrong Syl LA Ble: Due to all of the voice acting being done by text-to-speech software, "Neutron" is pronounced "Nutrin".
  • Adaptational Villainy: Canon Hugh Neutron is a kind eccentric. This version, on the other hand, is a crazed, murderous psychopath.
  • Awkward Father-Son Bonding Activity: In this case, watching TV together. The awkwardness mainly comes from the shotgun pointed at Jimmy for it.

  • But for Me, It Was Tuesday: As Jimmy says at the end, the events of the video are "just another day" in his life.
  • Everything Trying to Kill You:
    Jimmy: The pizza is aggressive.
  • Expanded Universe: Some of seinfeldspitstain's other videos seem to take place within the same continuity. The key factor tying the short with the other videos is Hugh's death.
  • Eye Take: Jimmy does one at the end as he utters the final line.
  • Gainax Ending: Jimmy's dad being decapitated by an aggressive pizza and Jimmy concluding that the day is typical for him, when it clearly isn't. It ends with a zoom-up on Jimmy's...bizarre face while the background music distorts.
  • Mind Screw: Hoo boy. Though it's probably justified by the fact that the creator apparently based it off of a dream.
  • Mood Whiplash:
    • The tranquil music that plays at the beginning is immediately followed by Judy's death.
      • The nonchalant way Hugh says "Jimmy, your mom is dead."

    • In the "sequel" video, in which the description would lead one to believe it would be more straight-up surrealism, turned out to merely be a zooming and panning shot of Jimmy in an open-faced grave, surrounded by mourners, with depressing music playing throughout. The end of the video reveals that he's in a "dead joke cemetery", buried alongside "Over 9000", "The Cake Is A Lie", and others. This is a clear Take That! to the video's memetic status and the fans who won't leave the creator alone about it.
  • Off with His Head!: Hugh Neutron, courtesy of the aggressive pizza.
  • Precision F-Strike: Hugh says "Oh shit!" as the aggressive pizza decapitates him.
  • R-Rated Opening: Hugh's murder of Judy.
  • Stylistic Suck: The animation itself is deliberately jagged and unusual with poor rendering. Special mention goes towards Judy Neutron, who isn't even given a model.
  • Surreal Humor: Bordering on Surreal Horror.
  • Synthetic Voice Actor: For everyone.
  • Uncanny Valley: Invoked by Jimmy's appearance. His more realistic texture and face proportions get enhanced by his creepy robotic voice and unnatural facial movements.
  • Widget Series: Definitely.
