Jimmy Two-Shoes (called Jimmy Cool in some regions) is a Canadian animated Two Shorts comedy series created by Edward Kay and Sean Scott. The series aired on Teletoon, Jetix Europe, and Disney XD from 2009 to 2011.

The show centers around the miscellaneous adventures of the eponymous Jimmy Two-Shoes, a perpetually happy and optimistic boy who resides in Miseryville, a miserable town populated by monsters and demons. Being the good-natured person he is, Jimmy aspires to bring joy and happiness to the town's residents, much to the dismay of Lucius Heinous VII, the tiny CEO of local Misery Inc, which manufactures products designed to keep the denizens of the town melancholic. Joining along on Jimmy's misadventures are his two best friends, Lucius' not-so-evil, not-so-intelligent son Beezy and Heloise, Lucius' sadistic top inventor who harbors a massive crush on Jimmy. Rounding out the cast are Lucius' beleaguered Yes-Man Samy, Jimmy's pet dog monster Cerbee, Drill Sergeant Nasty Molotov, Beezy's wild girlfriend Saffi, and Lucius' Rich Bitch fiancé Jez.

Jimmy Two-Shoes lasted two seasons, with the second season having the show undergo a tonal Retool that pushed the show even further away from its initial Black Comedy originsnote  to be even wackier, in addition to a production switch from ToonBoom to Adobe Flash. Despite announcements that it was renewed for a third season in 2011, these additional episodes never materialized, with most fans placing the blame for the cancellation on mixed response to the final season. Nevertheless, it retains a devoted, if small, fanbase.

The complete series was released on DVD in 2013 and won the Award of Excellence for Best Television Program Animation that same year. You can also catch every episode on YouTube here.note

     N-S 
  • Negative Continuity: The circumstances in which Lucius's father was frozen changes all the time, though it might be intended. See Multiple-Choice Past above.
  • Never My Fault: Whe Lucius accidentally blows up his toilet in The Big Drip, he pins it on Samy.
  • Nice Mean And Inbetween: Jimmy is friendly and optimistic and the Morality Pet to Heloise, a sadistic Mad Scientist who has a crush on him. Beezy is the inbetween, being the lazy one who constantly fights with Heloise.
  • Nightmare Sequence: Lucius' belly dancer dreams in Jimmy, Don't Be A Hero.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: Humphrey von Sidekick's voice is a caricature of Bing Crosby.
  • No Endor Holocaust: Lucius blows up a sun with no ill effects.
  • No Guy Wants an Amazon: Heloise has this dynamic with Jimmy, though she doesn't care and continues to pursue his affections regardless.
  • Noodle Incident: Whatever caused Heloise to have such a vendetta against ghosts that she's perfectly happy to attack them with a mace in "Ghostsmackers".
  • Not So Harmless Punishment: In Miseryville, being grounded means being Buried Alive.
  • The Nudifier: Heloise's trained moths in Better Sweater.
  • Oblivious to Love: Jimmy is either unaware or ignoring Heloise's increasingly-blatant attraction to him, though as the series goes on there are implications that he actually is aware to some extent.
  • Odd Couple: Beezy and Heloise as a subplot in Miseryville Marathon.
  • Off-Model: In Carnival Lucius, after Heloise packs up her carnival prototype, she has two mouths.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: Twinkles the Terrible.
  • One Head Taller: Jimmy to Heloise, Beezy to Saffi, Jez to Lucius. Though several heads is the better term in all but Beezy and Saffi.
  • One Steve Limit: Enforced in Power Squid and Spaghetti Beezy with Jimmy One-Shoe.
  • One-Winged Angel: Arianna.
  • One World Order: Maybe. It certainly seems like Miseryville is its own planet, though you never actually see much of what goes on outside the city itself, which seems to be mostly woodlands.
  • Operation: Jealousy: Pet Rocky, Heloise's Secret Admirer. In the latter it actually works.
  • Opposites Attract: A one-way example with the sadistic Heloise having a crush on the kind Jimmy.
