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 miscellaneous adventures 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. Other characters include Lucius' Yes-Man, Samy; Jimmy's pet dog monster, Cerbee, Drill Sergeant Nasty, Molotov; Beezy's girlfriend, Saffi; Lucius' girlfriend, Jez; and Miseryville's previous ruler, Lucius VI.

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. The first season is animated in ToonBoom while the second is in Adobe Flash.

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

    open/close all folders 



  • 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.
