Western Animation / Jimmy Two-Shoes

Go To
He's gonna turn your misery frown upside-down! note 
"Welcome to Miseryville!"
Lucius Heinous VII in the Season 1 intro

Jimmy Two-Shoes (called Jimmy Cool or Jimmy Jimmy in some regions) is a Canadian animated series produced by Breakthrough Entertainment (previously known for Atomic Betty and Captain Flamingo) for Teletoon and Jetix Europe (later Disney XD). The series was created by writer Edward Kay and animator Sean Scott, with The Raccoons creator Kevin Gillis serving as producer, and aired from 2009 to 2011 for 52 episodes.

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 miserable. 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 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 fianceé 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 Toon Boom 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.

Also of interest is that some of the show's characters appeared in the third season of the Canadian version of Skatoony alongside characters from its contemporary Total Drama, replacing characters from the original UK version.

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

This show provides examples of:

    open/close all folders 

  • Abduction Is Love: Heloise seems to think so...
  • Abhorrent Admirer: The Princess Weavil from "I Married a Weavil" was one for Beezy when he got forced into a Shotgun Wedding with her.
  • Abnormal Ammo: "Beezy J. Genius" starts with Jimmy, Beezy, and Heloise using gremlins to smash tossed plates for fun.
  • Absurdly Spacious Sewer: Jimmy and Beezy enter one in "Heloise's Big Secret". It's where Heloise is hiding her "big secret" — her voodoo doll project.
  • Abusive Parents: Every Heinous father is this to every Heinous son, although we really only see Beezy and Lucius' childhoods.
  • Accidental Kiss : Between Heloise and Beezy in "There's Always a Hiccup". Cue screaming.
  • Achievements in Ignorance: In "Jimmy in the Big House", all of the animals in the titular prison are fully capable of speaking English. Until Molotov reminds them that they can't, at which point they are all reduced to making animal noises.
  • Acme Products: Misery Inc products are an evil version of this trope.
  • Acquired Situational Narcissism: Jimmy gets this in "The Masked Jackhammer" when he mistakenly believes that he singlehandedly won the wrestling matches.
  • Actor Allusion: Beezy has an embarrassing middle name, just like Harold does.
  • Adobe Flash: Contrary to common belief, Season 1 actually used Toon Boom (albeit on a more modest budget), but due to a change in animation studios, production switched to Flash in Season 2.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Jimmy calls Lucius "Lucy", much to the latter's chagrin.
  • A Hell of a Time: Despite its name, Miseryville seems to be a fairly decent place most of the time. Might be Jimmy's personality (and Lucius' incompetence) at work here.
  • A.I. Is a Crapshoot:
    • The Frustrate-O-Bot in "Heloise's Wish List" quickly turns on Lucius after he attempts to exert authority over it.
    • The Yoki doll is "A Present for Jez" is designed to give endless compliments to everyone. Unfortunately, after Jimmy impulsively takes it apart to see how it works, he accidentally crosses its circuits when he hastily rebuilds it, causing it to endlessly insult others instead. To make things worse, when he tries to fix that, the doll ends up stealing a laser gun and overthrowing Lucius as the ruler of Miseryville.
  • Air-Vent Passageway: Jimmy and Beezy try to sneak through one in "Jimmy in the Big House". It fails.
  • Alien Sky: Miseryville's sky has three suns and several moons.
  • All Just a Dream: The endings of "Panda-Monium" and "Zombie Pickle" for Heloise and Jimmy respectively.
  • Alternative Calendar: All the months are named after Lucius, like "Lucember" or "Lucapril".
  • Always Chaotic Evil: The Weavils, a race of intelligent weasels that live outside Miseryville, are all unpleasant, mean-spirited and kinda have gross hygiene.
  • Amusement Park of Doom: Both subverted in "Carnival Lucius" when Lucius is tricked into thinking carnivals are something that makes people miserable. He is extremely displeased to find out that carnivals don't do what he was told.
  • Amusing Injuries: This is a Sadist Show with a heavy reliance on slapstick humour, so naturally, they're everywhere and in every episode.
  • Animate Inanimate Object: A few of the citizens of Miseryville like Bill the Bubble Ball, an unnamed sock, and an anthropomorphic factory whistle.
  • Annoying Laugh: Mr. Ten, which is the entire reason why Heloise forbids him from smiling or laughing.

  • Appease the Volcano God: A group of tribepeople try to feed Jimmy and Beezy to a volcano monster in "Spring Broke".
  • April Fools' Day: Or rather, Lucius Fools Day where Lucius gets to play mean pranks on everyone.
  • Arranged Marriage / Shotgun Wedding: The premise of the episode "I Married a Weavil" is based on Beezy being forced into one with the homely weavil princess as part of a peace treaty with the weavils.
  • Art Evolution: The final six episodes of Season 1 use a slightly lighter color palette (Beezy and Lucius become lighter shades of red). This trend was continued in Season 2, along with the animation becoming more detailed (which is most noticeable in the facial expressions) at the cost of being less fluid due to Elliott Animation taking over from Mercury Filmworks and thus the show changing its animation software from ToonBoom to Flash.
  • Art Shift: "Jimmy and Beezy on the Run" has the characters become arcade game sprites while tunneling at one point.
  • Aside Comment: In "Heloise Schmeloise", after trashing her shrine to Jimmy Heloise claims that she doesn't need him because she is successful and popular, then she glances at the screen and replies "That's right, I said popular", referencing to her in-real life's popularity.
  • Ask a Stupid Question...: From "A Cold Day In Miseryville".
    Beezy (on the snow machine): Ewww, is that dandruff?
    Heloise: Yeah, I made a machine that makes dandruff. It's snow, icebrain!
  • Awesomeness by Analysis: In "Beezy J. Genius", Genius!Beezy freezes his father with the previous Heinouses simply by telling him to "move a little to the left".
  • A Wizard Did It: Word of God says that all one-off weirdness is Lucius' reality-warping powers at work.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: "There Will Be Chocolate", "The Product Tester", and "Catalogue of Misery" all end with Lucius getting what he wants and defeating Jimmy in the end without further humiliation.
  • Babysitting Episode: "Baby Boom", in which Jimmy and Beezy take care of Molotov's kids for concert ticket money. Unfortunately, Jimmy is stuck with Blammo, who won't stop spewing, while Beezy's neglect with Tory leads to him making more trouble than he usually does.
  • Bait-and-Switch Credits: Most fans agree the second-season opening is awesome, but they might also tell you that it makes the show appear quite saccharine.
  • Balloon Belly: Appears multiple times throughout the show. Notable cases are:
    • In "There Will Be Chocolate", Jimmy and his friends get fat from indulging themselves in chocolate all the time.
    • In "The Product Tester", this happens to Jimmy and Beezy when they have to eat several giant vats of ice cream.
  • Banana Peel: "Power Squid and Spaghetti Beezy" has Jimmy put some under the feet of the Rodeo Clowns.
  • Bastard Understudy: Every member of the Heinous family starting with Lucius II attained power by overthrowing and freezing their fathers. Beezy doesn't have much interest in doing this to his father, except in one episode where he gets his intelligence boosted enough to go through with it.
  • Beach Episode: "Heat Blanket Jimmy" has Jimmy, Beezy, and Heloise going to the beach to escape a heat wave. that being said, Miseryville beaches are just as miserable as the town itself.
  • Bears Are Bad News: Lucius sics one on Samy in "Mount Misery". It doesn't like his taste.

  • Be the Ball: Lucius' guards do this to Jimmy in "Too Many Jimmys".
  • Big Damn Heroes: Subverted in "I Married a Weavil" where Jimmy and Heloise end up not saving Beezy from the marriage. Heloise was looking for a different wedding, and Jimmy got distracted by the wedding cake.
  • Birthday Episode: "Happy Birthday, Lucius", which also shows us how awful Lucius' birthday parties are for everyone else in Miseryville, until Jimmy gets involved of course.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Mrs. Gerkin turns out to be everything Jimmy thought she was in the end.
  • Bizarre and Improbable Golf Game: "Way Below Par" is based around Lucius' rigged golf games and Jimmy competing in them. Hilarity Ensues.
  • Black Comedy: While it's more obvious in the original pitch, the final result still features a pretty decent amount, largely derived from the show's cruel, and sometimes violent, sense of slapstick humor.
  • Bland-Name Product: Spew Tube from the episode of the same name.
  • Blatant Lies: Frequently, mostly from Heloise. Even Jimmy and Beezy can tell when she's lying.
    "I feel bad about it now."

  • Cast of Snowflakes: To the point where even the nameless background incidentals are easily recognizable.
  • The Cat Came Back: In "Panda-Monium", Jimmy and Beezy are playing a game of who can make the most annoying sound in the world, and no matter where Heloise goes, they're still playing the game. And when Heloise attempts to crush a panda with her fridge it turns out Beezy was hiding in it.
  • Catchphrase: Referenced in "I Totally Shredded My Cheese", when the eponymous phrase grants Jimmy instant stardom.

  • Comically Missing the Point: After the Amusement Park of Doom ride results in a Close-Call Haircut, Heloise has only one remark...
    Heloise: We should have been chopped to bits... Hey, Lucius! Your henchmen do shoddy work!
  • Compressed Vice: Beezy's cell phone addiction in "Cellphone-itis" is never seen after the episode. And it's not even cured at the end!
  • Continuity Nod:
    • In "A Cold Day In Miseryville", Jimmy, Beezy and Heloise perform a song about Samy. Later in "Best Bud Battle", Runny and the Nosebleeds are heard playing it. Also in "Snowrilla", Beezy mentions of Heloise's snow machine from the former episode.
    • Ms. Gherkin from "Rear Pickle" reappears in "Zombie Pickle", even though she was eaten by Cerbee in the former and in the latter they don't seem to recognize her.

  • Cut His Heart Out with a Spoon: In "What's Up With Heloise" Heloise threatens to "cookie" Jimmy and Beezy to the moon if they don't leave her house, they get confused with this.
  • Cut Short: There were plans for a third season, though they were eventually cancelled due to Disney XD losing the last of their little interest in the show.
  • Cyber Cyclops: Heloise's snow-making mecha, due to it being modeled after Cerbee.
  • Dartboard of Hate: "Jimmy Matchmaker" does a variant with Saffi throwing a statue of Lucius at a poster of him.
  • Denser and Wackier: The second season in comparison to the first. It's almost like the writers forgot that Miseryville was supposed to be a cartoon version of Hell.
  • Didn't Think This Through: In "The Big Drip", when Jimmy has a major Potty Emergency, Lucius then blows up all the toilets in Miseryville...including his own, which causes him to end up sharing Jimmy's agony.

    "I'm not interested in your junk!"
  • The Dreaded: Lucius Heinous I, who, unlike his descendants, was tall, imposing and frankly terrifying. There were plans for him to appear in the show, but they never came to be.
  • Dream Sequence: Heloise has two in "Air Force None". Both of them, unsurprisingly, involve Jimmy.
  • Eat The Dog: Implied in "Monster Mutt". Heloise inadvertently insults a lava worm, who insults her back. At the end of the episode, she serves Jimmy a meal, saying that she hopes the lava worms aren't too chewy. The lava worm's friend (seen earlier in the episode) then walks by, looking for him.
  • The Eeyore: Mr. Ten from "The Mysterious Mr. Ten".
  • Egopolis: A variation. Miseryville's name isn't affected, but all the months are named after Lucius. The city is also littered with statues and other depictions of Lucius.
  • Elite Mooks: Lucius' Minotaur guards.
  • Epic Flail: Heloise has one in "Ghostsmackers", which she uses to try destroy the ghost haunting Beezy's room.
  • Embarrassing Old Photo: "Spew Tube" has an embarrassing home movie of Lucius as a child trying to do a stunt dive into a swimming pool, only to fall out of his swimsuit and do a belly-flop. Heloise makes it public.
  • "Everybody Laughs" Ending: Some episodes end this way, such as "Pet Rocky" and "Beezy J. Genius".
  • Everyone Can See It: Dorkus mentions that everyone knows that Heloise is crazy about Jimmy in a Season 2 episode. This is odd as in a Season 1 episode, he says "I didn't know you like Two-Shoes." Might be Flanderization at work though.
  • Eviler than Thou:
    • Mean Jean to Heloise in "Heloise's Rival".
    • It's the relationship every Heinous has with their father. Not counting that every Heinous agrees that Lucius the First is by far the worst of all of them.
  • Evil Redhead: Mean Jean in "Heloise's Rival".
  • Expy: Mean Jean from Heloise's Rival is pretty much Princess Morbucks as a cyclops, right down to the Rich Bitch.
  • Exposition Diagram: "My Best Friend is a Weavil" has Jimmy giving one on the relation between the Heinous family and the weavils, which is rather strange and unnecessary given that the relationship has been well-established since the weavils' debut in "Mount Misery".

  • Family Business: Misery Inc. has been run by the Heinous family since Miseryville was first founded.

    • Saffi's teeth. Not that that stops her from having quite a large male fanbase.
    • Any scene of Lucius without his shirt on in Season 2.
  • Fantastic Racism: The Heinous family loathes weavils. The feeling is mutual, but also justified on both sides, given they're all Jerkasses.
  • The Farmer and the Viper: In "Invasion of the Weavils", Jimmy agrees to care for the Weavil Chief, whom he think he's injured (the weavil was just faking it), despite Beezy's warnings that weavils cannot be trusted. Indeed, the weavil takes full advantage of him to boss him around, invite more of his kind, and throw loud parties.
  • "Far Side" Island:
    • Lucius put Beezy on one in "My Best Friend is a Weavil" as punsihment for being friends with Jimmy. The weavil that Beezy decides to befriend to prank his dad was also on that island.
    • "Lucius Lost" revolves around Jimmy and Lucius being trapped on Lucius' swimming pool.
  • Fire and Brimstone Hell: Miseryville is implied to be this, given all the fire and suffering. However, it's somewhat more tolerable than most examples due to Lucius' incompetence and Jimmy's contagious cheer.
  • First Snow / Let There Be Snow: "A Cold Day In Miseryville" has Heloise give Miseryville a snow day after Jimmy tells her and Beezy about snow. Everyone has a blast, but Lucius and Samy then ruin it when they realize the cold weather also makes people miserable.

  • Fluffy the Terrible:
    • Heloise has a mechanical spider named Angela in "Happy Birthday Lucius".
    • Also, Twinkles the Terrible, a giant alien unicorn intent of destroying Miseryville. Fortunately, everyone is too busy laughing at his name to take him seriously, which prompts him to leave in annoyance.
  • Follow That Car: Parodied in "Dance, Jimmy, Dance", where Jimmy hops into a taxi and also pretends to be the cab driver. And then, he ends up driving the cab off a cliff.

  • Genius Serum: In "Beezy J. Genius", Heloise builds a machine to increase her intellect after being unable to figure out why gum does not stick to your mouth when you chew it. Due to gum getting stuck in the machine, it affects Beezy (and a random boulder) instead, who not only solves the question, but becomes an Insufferable Genius too. Heloise, Jimmy, and Lucius then plot to turn Beezy back to his idiot self.

    Lucius VI: (when his nose falls off) What? You try standing in there for a while!
  • Heads or Tails?: Parodied, in "Best Bud Battle" after Heloise asks this to Beezy and he answers "tail" she hurls him into the air and he lands on his face and in "I Totally Shredded My Cheese" they chant this (with tails being replaced for butt at Beezy's request) as they try to guess how Jimmy (and later Lucius) is gonna land after being catapulted by a geyser.

  • Here We Go Again!: "There's Always a Hiccup" ends with Beezy getting the hiccups.

    • "There Will Be Chocolate", we're treated to Heloise running through a chocolate world and licking a chocolate Jimmy. When it switches back to reality, she's got the real Jimmy.
  • Inevitable Waterfall: Parodied in "Wish You Weren't Here". Jimmy's cruise boat hits a waterfall so small it just rocks the boat a little. Then there are two more just like it, so Lucius doesn't worry about the fourth one...which is a big one.
  • Instant Humiliation: Just Add YouTube!: "Spew Tube", as the name suggests, revolves around this when Heloise uploads an embarrassing old home movie of Lucius to the eponymous website, turning him into Miseryville's laughingstock.
  • I Owe You My Life / You Owe Me: Parodied in "Jimmy, Don't Be a Hero". Jimmy rescues Lucius from being squashed, and when Lucius asks what he wants from doing that, Jimmy says "you own me one" in a "think-nothing-of-it" kind of way.

  • Ironic Hell: In "Best Prank Ever", it was pulled off as the ultimate prank against Lucius from Heloise with everyone's help by changing Miseryville into the complete opposite utopia, Smilesville. Lucius didn't take it very well.
  • The Jeeves: Butley the butler.
  • Jet Pack: Heloise has one that she uses in the Season 2 intro. Lucius also uses one in several Season 1 episodes.
  • Joker Jury / Kangaroo Court: Appears in "Jimmy in the Big House". Not only is Cerbee tried in one, somehow the judge and every member of the jury is Lucius.
  • Just One Extra Ticket: "The Competition" has Jimmy snagging two tickets for an upcoming Runny and the Nosebleeds concert. Unable to decide whether he should bring Beezy or Heloise (who had been even more combative towards each other than usual), he makes a bet that whoever's nicer to the other will get the extra ticket, which just results in the two trying to injure and even kill each other in comedic ways.
  • Karmic Butt-Monkey: Lucius is a cruel, corrupt dictator who loves making people suffer, but he suffers just as often as those he torments, often from Jimmy's shenanigans.
  • Kavorka Man: An unnamed one appears as a quick joke in "Matchmaker Jimmy". He's a blobby, slimy monster and yet several Cute Monster Girls are seen fawning around him.
    "What can I say? I got charm."
  • Kids Prefer Boxes: Heloise receives a box of jewels in "Miseryville Marathon" from Beezy. Guess which she decides to take.
    "Boxy! Boxy! Boxy!"
  • Klingon Promotion: Every member of the Heinous family has assumed command over Misery Inc. and Miseryville after freezing their father.
  • Later-Installment Weirdness: As the series goes on, the setting becomes less Hell-like and, to a lesser extent, less miserable. For example, Funny Animals and Animate Inanimate Objects appear more frequently in later episodes as background or plot-central characters rather than just one-off jokes.
  • Law Enforcement, Inc.: Misery Inc. has its own private army consisting of General Molotov and the Minotaur guards.
  • Leaning on the Fourth Wall: "Pet Rocky" has Beezy literally walk from one scene to the next.
  • Lilliputians: Miseryville has a number of tiny-sized denizens, such as the Gnomans, the Racing Bugs, and Dorkus.
  • Limited Wardrobe:
    • Heloise wears her red dress everyday. Even wearing it to go to bed and going to the beach or even while swimming in a pool.
    • Lampshaded once when Jimmy (who almost always wears the same green t-shirt) admits he only has one shirt. Cue Gross-Up Close-Up of its tattered condition.
  • Look Both Ways: According to Word of God, the way Jimmy died was that he was hit by a bus, and was sent to Miseryville instead of Heaven due to a clerical error.
  • Loony Fan: The pandas in "Panda-Monium", to Heloise's horror and Jimmy and Beezy's delight.
  • Losing Your Head: "Head Will Roll"'s entire plot centers around this happening to Heloise as part of a scheme by Dr. Scientist to beat her at the Annual Mad Scientist Awards.
  • Love at First Sight: Beezy and Saffi in "Jimmy Matchmaker", with Saffi immediately taking interest to Beezy's "smoothy-smoooth" head and Beezy being instantly smitten shortly afterwards.
  • Love Letter Lunacy: Beezy mistakenly tells Lucius that a letter for Jazmeen is from Jez in "Cerbee in Love". Lucius is flattered by the letter and Hilarity Ensues.
  • Love Triangle: Peep loves Heloise who loves Jimmy.
  • Made of Explodium: Happens pretty frequently. "My Best Friend is a Weavil" had an exploding card, while "Jimmy and Beezy on the Run" featured exploding robot butterflies.
  • Man-Eating Plant: Heloise has one in her living room.
  • The Man in the Mirror Talks Back: "Funny Face-Off" has this happen to Jimmy.
  • May Contain Evil: All Misery Inc. products are designed with this in mind, given that they're produced to make people, well, miserable.
  • Mechanical Horse: Heloise uses one in "Heloise's Secret Admirer".
  • MegaCorp: Misery Inc. dominates nearly every part of a Miseryvillian's life, producing items for every imaginable situation and owning the entire town.
  • Miracle-Gro Monster: A Misery Inc. product featured in "The Big Date". Heloise uses one to get revenge on Jez when she believes Jimmy's dating her.
  • Mirror-Cracking Ugly: Lucius is shown to be this in "A Hair-Brained Idea".
  • Misunderstood Loner with a Heart of Gold: Subverted with Mrs. Gherkin. While everything Jimmy thought about her turns out to be a misunderstanding, she turns out to be every bit as evil as Jimmy believed she was.
  • Mugging the Monster: The Rodeo Clowns kidnap Heloise in "Heinous vs Clown". It ends badly.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: Molotov's wife, the Gnomans, the Racing Bugs, and many other denizens of Miseryville.
  • Multiboobage: Some of the background characters, both male and female.
  • Multiple Head Case: Some of the citizens of Miseryville, with the most prominent being Luigi-Paulo.
  • Murder the Hypotenuse: Heloise does this in "Heloise, Schmeloise" after getting fed up with her robot duplicate stealing all of Jimmy's attention away from her.
  • My Little Panzer: Any Misery Inc. product for children.

  • Negative Continuity: Due to being a Gag Series based on Rule of Funny. Episodes have ended with things like Lucius going insane or falling into the Abyss of Nothingness, or Miseryville being totally destroyed, only for the very next episode to have everything back to where it started.
  • Never My Fault: When Lucius accidentally blows up his toilet in "The Big Drip", he pins it on Samy.
  • Nice, Mean, and In-Between: 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". He ends up having to act them out in reality at the end.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: Humphrey Von Sidekick's voice is a caricature of Bing Crosby.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: In "There's Always An Hiccups" Heloise beats up Jimmy and Beezy (off-screen) so badly that they spend the latter half of the episode covered in bandages.
  • Not So Harmless Punishment: In Miseryville, being grounded means being Buried Alive.
  • Odd Couple: Beezy and Heloise as a subplot in "Miseryville Marathon".
  • 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.
    Jimmy Two-Shoes: I can't be Jimmy Two-Shoes with just one shoe! I'd be Jimmy...One-Shoe!
    (a one-legged monster dressed like Jimmy hops by)
    Monster: And that name is already taken!
  • 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 mountains and woodlands.
  • Operation: Jealousy:
    • Beezy tries this in "Pet Rocky" by dressing up Samy as a dog to get Rocky to come back to him from Jimmy. It doesn't work though
    • "Heloise's Secret Admirer" sees Heloise try this on Jimmy by dating Peep. It actually works!
  • Orphaned Punchline: Of the visual variety. It's not uncommon for Heloise to be introduced into the plot by seeing her conducting some kind of experiment on Beezy or another unfortunate demon without any previous context.
  • Our Demons Are Different / The Legions of Hell: Nearly everyone in Miseryville is some kind of demon or monster, with the setting being a goofy version of Hell and all that. Each one is of a different shape and size, and some look more like conventional devils than others. However, they're all pretty much just odd-looking humans when you get down to it, with the exception of Lucius, if Word of God's statement about him being a Reality Warper is anything to go by.
  • Our Ghosts Are Different:
    • "Ghostsmackers" has Wayne, a ghost formed from Beezy's uneaten pizza crusts. There was also a ghostly couple who appear as a Running Gag, although only Jimmy seems shocked by them.
    • "Toastbusters" involved a pair of ghosts haunting Jimmy's house who need to return to Ghostville by getting back a toaster Lucius "borrowed" from them a long time ago.
  • Our Mermaids Are Different: A merman appears as a one-off joke in "Chez Beezy".
  • Our Minotaurs Are Different: Lucius seems to have an unlimited supply of minotaur-like enforcers. There's Wreckem, Miseryville's No.1 soccer player, and a Cyclops to boot.
  • Out-of-Character Moment:
    • Jimmy tossing Heloise into a mud puddle in "Heloise, Schmeloise" seems pretty jerkass for Jimmy. In fact, it's widely considered that entire episode is this for Jimmy, since the whole plot relies on him being much stupider than he actually is.
  • Own Goal: In the episode "Bend It Like Wreckem", Jimmy fills in for soccer star Wreckem and tries to score the winning goal, only for the ball to ricochet and fly into the wrong goal, decimating the cheese monster goalie who already had a hole shot through him.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: Occurs quite a bit, with an excellent example being Jimmy's Molotov "costume" in "Rocket Jimmy", which is really just a sock puppet he puts up that somehow fools Lucius into bring Jimmy on board the rocket. However, other examples don't work quite as well, such as Beezy dressing up as Heloise in "Best Bud Battle".
  • Pass the Popcorn: "The Terrific Trio" sees Lucius and the monster that keeps beating him up (Samy) happily eating popcorn together to watch Jimmy, Beezy, and Heloise fight.
  • The Password Is Always "Swordfish": From "Clowns Gone Wild":
    Rodeo Clowns: What's the password?!
    Beezy: Password?
    Clown: Correct! What's the confirmation password?!
    Beezy: Uhhhmmm...
    Clown: Correct!
  • Personality Swap: "A Hair-Brained Idea" has Lucius swapping his horns with Jimmy's hair, which has the side-effect of Jimmy's personality slowly taking over Lucius's and vice-versa until the two eventually switch back.
  • Pimp Duds: Samy is inexplicably seen wearing some in "The Terrific Trio".
  • Pinball Gag: "Samy's New Gig" has Jimmy and Beezy engaging in this as part of a game.
  • Pity the Kidnapper: The Miseryville Moment "Pet Project" has Dr. Scientist try to conduct experiments on Cerbee. Guess who suffers more.
  • Poke the Poodle: In "Jimmy and Beezy on the Run", the most evil thing Jimmy could muster was TP a house.
    • Most of Lucius' ideas to spread misery are this.
  • Potty Emergency: "The Big Drip" revolves around Jimmy having one after Beezy accidentally destroys his bathroom. Lucius ends up in the same situation when he destroys every washroom in Miseryville...including his own.
  • Power Trio: Jimmy, Beezy, and Heloise.
  • Premiseville: Miseryville, where the ruling Lucius Heinous VII forces the demonic populace to be always unhappy through the various products Misery Inc. churns out. Unfortunately for Lucius, the only person who can't be made miserable is Jimmy.
  • Pretty Butterflies: Exploding robot butterflies!
  • Priceless Ming Vase: Subverted in "Jimmy and Beezy on the Run". It just looks that way.
  • Prison Episode: "Jimmy in the Big House" sees Jimmy and Beezy get trapped in an animals-only prison when they sneak in to bust Cerbee out, only to find he's already escaped by himself.
  • Pro Wrestling Episode: "The Masked Jackhammer" is about Jimmy becoming the wrestling partner with the title character. Hilarity Ensues.
  • Projectile Toast: The "lifeguard" in "Heat Blanket Jimmy". Beeezy is later seen eating it.
  • Promotion to Opening Titles: Many recurring characters in the Season 2 opening: Molotov, Dr. Scientist, Saffi, Jez, Dorkus, the Weavils, the Awe Guy, and so on and so forth.
  • Puppeteer Parasite: The racing bugs of the episode of the same name. They take over people's brains, causing the host to run at high speeds, which the bugs use to compete against each other.
  • Puppy-Dog Eyes: Heloise tries this on Jimmy and Beezy many times. It never works.
  • Recurring Extra: Lots. Ms. Cheesebreath, Luigi-Paulo, Apple, Chef Garbage, Chuck the bus driver, the Awe Guy, Molotov's family, the Rimshot guy, the reporter monster, Butley the butler, and dozens of unnamed ones. The Cast of Snowflakes character designs really help with this.
  • Recycled In Space: It's kind of like Spongebob Squarepants in Hell, or alternatively, The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy, except it's a dumb boy and a mean girl in a quirky iteration of Hell instead of a dumb boy and a mean girl with a quirky iteration of The Grim Reaper.
  • Restaurant-Owning Episode: "Chez Beezy" sees Beezy end up running Miseryville's most popular eatery, Chez Garbage, and Lucius wants to bring Jez there for a date.
  • Retool: Season 2, with the most obvious indications being that the new animation style, intro, theme song, and credits sequence. Also, the tone, writing, setting, and characterization go in an even Denser and Wackier direction than before; there are some new recurring characters while some older ones barely appear; and a number of new backgrounders are introduced with many from Season 1 being removed. In some ways, Season 2 feels like a totally different show.
  • Rhetorical Question Blunder: In "Best Bud Battle", Beezy gets sidetracked by his own question when explaining to Jimmy why he and Heloise fight all the time. He and Jimmy then spend a few seconds pondering whether birds do, in fact, have ears, before a bird flies in to verify that yes, they do.
    Jimmy: Do you two always have to fight?
    Beezy: Do birds have ears? That's a good question; "do birds have ears?"
  • Riddle for the Ages: The exact nature of Miseryville and how Jimmy got there is never explained. Unless you believe the pilot is canon, then Jimmy was sent to Hell by accident.
  • Rimshot: A Recurring Extra makes a Running Gag out of it, always showing up whenever someone makes a pun or a very corny joke.
  • Robot Me: Schmeloise. Unfortunately for Heloise, Jimmy falls in love with it.
  • Rodents of Unusual Size: Beezy is attacked by one in "The Product Tester" while wearing clothing made from cheese.
  • Royally Screwed Up: The entire Heinous family. You know something's wrong when someone like Lucius Heinous VII is considered the least evil ruler Miseryville has had.
  • Rubber Man: One appears as a quick gag in "Zombie Pickle".
  • Rule of Funny: This show would not exist without it.
  • Runaway Bride: The ending of "I Married a Weavil" The Weavil Princess runs off to marry the weavils' mightiest warrior while Beezy ends up marrying her identical brother Tom.
  • Sand In My Eyes: Heloise tries this is "Bird Brained" when Lovey is reunited with his mother.
  • Sadist Show: This show has a cruel sense of slapstick humour and lots of Black Comedy, meaning every single character has been subjected to some form of suffering for laughs at least once. But hey, what else did you expect from a cartoon about a wacky version of Hell?
  • Sadist Teacher: Lucius had one. Though, he ended up having his (still-living) head mounted on a wall.
    Lucius: Not so funny now, is it professor?
  • Sanity Ball: Passed between Jimmy, Lucius, and Heloise in Season 1, and then just Lucius and Heloise in Season 2.
  • Satiating Sandwich:
    • The Miseryville Moment "You Finish My Sandwiches" revolves around Beezy creating the perfect sandwich.
    • "My So-Called Loaf" has Jimmy creating a perfect sandwich as well, except it ended up becoming the love interest for a giant anthropomorphic sandwich named Cowboy Stackhouse.
  • Scary Stinging Swarm: "Spew Tube" has Lucius swat a bee to show off his ferocity. Jimmy tries to make him look tougher by angering the rest of the swarm. It fails.
  • Scream Discretion Shot: The Accidental Kiss in "There's Always a Hiccup".
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here: At the end of "Best Bud Battle", after Beezy and Heloise don't let Jimmy sleep by playing their harmonica and horn, Jimmy flees his house and sleeps on Cerbee's doghouse.
  • Screw Learning, I Have Phlebotinum!: Most of what Genius!Beezy does in "Beezy J. Genius".
  • Seashell Bra: Heloise in her mermaid outfit.
  • Secret Handshake: Lucius has one in to access his pet bird, Lovey, in "Bird Brained".
  • Secret Test of Character: "Jimmy On the Spot" revolves around one as part of a game show. Jimmy wins it...sort of
  • Self-Made Orphan: A partial example. The entire Heinous family has frozen their father (they're still alive in there) to take over Miseryville with the exceptions of Beezy (who isn't ruler of Miseryville yet) and Lucius I (who has no predecessors).
  • "Shaggy Dog" Story: "Cerbee in Love" ends with Cerbee and Jazmeen deciding they don't like each other. despite that the entire episode was about getting them together.
  • She Cleans Up Nicely: Heloise in "Scent of the Heinous" and "Heloise's Secret Admirer". Jimmy takes notice in the former
  • Ship Tease: The show likes teasing the possibility that Jimmy and Heloise are about to kiss.
    • One ends with Beezy and Heloise accidentally kissing instead. Then, to add insult to injury, Jimmy breaks the fourth wall to show us a rerun in slow motion!
    • The second time was in "I Am Jimmy", when Jimmy reads up that a princess can be woken up with a kiss. He looks over the sleeping Heloise for a moment before tossing the book aside and leaving.
    • Also, at the end of "Fused Together", Jimmy and Heloise finally do go on a date at the movies together; the both of them were fused onto Beezy's back, and the episode ended with 3D arrows making a giant heart around the two (not counting Beezy).
    • This happens quite a bit in Season 2 episodes.
  • Shirtless Scene: Molotov in "Rocket Jimmy". He's shown using his pecs to snap a peanut shell.
  • Short-Distance Phone Call: "Generation Text" and "Cellphone-itis" both have Beezy, Jimmy, and Heloise doing this.
  • Shout-Out: Several.
  • Shrine to Self: Lucius's home is decorated with pictures of himself and the other Heinouses. That's not even getting to the depictions of himself all over Miseryville.
  • Sickeningly Sweethearts: Lucius tries to make his relationship with Jez like this, but she's uninterested.
  • Smart People Wear Glasses: Genius!Beezy in "Beezy J. Genius" and Heloise on occasion.
  • Smelly Skunk: "Jimmy in the Big House" and "Jimmy and Beezy on the Run" have a tough skunk criminal who plays a role in the plot.
  • Smooth-Talking Talent Agent: Parodied in the episodes "I Totally Shredded My Cheese" and "The Masked Jackhammer", where Beezy tries to be Jimmy's agent and self-proclaimed owner of the "Beezy Got Talent Agency." His business card is beat up with a crudely edited photo of himself with marker-drawn hair and a tuxedo taped to his waist and his negotiations with Lucius always result in the latter giving him minor things like a pen or a bag of chips while Lucius profits off everything Jimmy makes, which Beezy always accepts with no hesitation.
  • The Smurfette Principle: Heloise is the only main female character in the show. We also have Saffi, Jez, and Molotov's wife (and random extras), but Heloise is the only one who regularly appears.
  • Snap Back: As mentioned in Negative Continuity above, the show is prone to these. The best examples are "Best Prank Ever", "Carnival Lucius", and "The Masked Jackhammer". The first episode ends with Lucius insane and the other two end with him and Samy trapped in the Abyss of Nothingness. They are perfectly fine in the next episode.
  • Snowball Fight: "A Cold Day In Miseryville" has Jimmy demonstrating how they work to Beezy and Heloise.
  • Snowlems: Heloise's snow fantasy in "A Cold Day In Miseryville" has her with an army of such beings. She's later seen trying to create some, but Jimmy accidentally destroys them.
  • Songs in the Key of Lock: "Heloise's Big Secret" has Heloise dancing on manhole covers as the passcode to enter the underground chamber she's developing the voodoo dolls in.
  • Space Episode: "Rocket Jimmy" sees Lucius go to the Moon to fight a supposed lunar monster, with Jimmy sneaking on board and totally ruining the trip for him.
  • Springtime for Hitler: "I Married a Weavil" revolves around Beezy trying to use this trope. He fails hilariously.
  • Squirrels in My Pants: The Miseryville Moment "Random Acts of Jimmy", as well as the Season 2 episode "Dance Jimmy Dance". Though it was a bee and a lobster respectively.
  • Stalker Shrine: Heloise, of all people, has this dedicated to Jimmy and it's hidden behind the fireplace.
  • Status Quo Is God: Like many Rule of Funny cartoons, this is to be expected.
  • Stealth Pun: Lucius I-VI have all been cryogenically frozen. "When Hell Freezes Over", anyone?
  • Stockholm Syndrome: Jez in "The Big Date" when she gets kidnapped by a King Kong-like monster whom she ends up dating.
  • Stomach of Holding: In "Heat Blanket Jimmy", Jimmy has somehow placed an entire surfboard inside himself.
  • Strange Minds Think Alike:
    • In "Ghostsmackers", both Beezy and Lucius mention that they've "got to stop falling asleep to Ghoul FM".
    • In "Scent of a Heinous", Jimmy says he doesn't like Heinous hairspray because it's not tall enough. Two monsters then walk by and say: "How's that drink?" "It'd be better if it was taller."
  • Stylistic Suck: Jimmy's poetry in "Better Sweater".
  • Subverted Suspicion Aesop: The end of "Rear Pickle". It turns out Ms. Gherkin was exactly as Jimmy thought she was all along, although only the viewers and Cerbee get to see that.
  • Superficial Suggestion Box: When the town is particularly angry with Lucius, Jimmy suggests a suggestion box. Lucius loves the idea: all those suggestions in a box where he doesn't have to look at them. Of course, since he places Jimmy in charge of it, Hilarity Ensues.
  • Superhero Episode: "Powersquid and Spaghetti Beezy" and its Season 2 sequel, "The Terrific Trio".
  • Surfer Dude: The Snowrilla from the episode of the same name, although he technically snowboards instead.
  • Swallowed Whole: Lucius gets eaten by a sea monster in "Heat Blanket Jimmy".
  • Sweet Polly Oliver: "Something About Herman". Then it turns out Herman is Heloise's cousin.
  • Sycophantic Servant: Lucius' Minotaurs, to the point of even willingly using themselves as fishing bait.

  • The Talk: Played for laughs in "Pet Rocky" when Beezy goes to talk to Lucius and Lucius thinks it's the trope. Beezy then tells him he wants a pet.
  • Technicolor Eyes: Jimmy is usually portrayed with generic black eyes, but "The Masked Jackhammer" reveals that he has dark orange irises with even darker pupils.
  • Technicolor Fire: Misery Inc. spews green fire.
  • The Television Talks Back: Often, such as in "I am Jimmy", where Samy demands Jimmy to ask the question needed for him to continue his explanation of why everyone falls asleep for a whole day on the 6th of Lucapril.
  • Tempting Fate: "How hard could it possibly be?" - Jimmy in a number of episodes.
  • Temporary Bulk Change: In "There Will Be Chocolate", Jimmy, Beezy, and Heloise all get fat (complete with acne spots, poorly-fitting clothes, and distorted music) after overindulging in Lucius' secret chocolate stash. Beezy in particular gets so cartoonishly large that Jimmy and Heloise have to pump it back out of him to refill Lucius' supply by the end of the episode.
  • Theme Naming: Almost all the main characters have either Punny Names or Meaningful Names taken from Biblical names.
  • Thick-Line Animation: Due to the series using ToonBoom and Adobe Flash. In fact, Season 2 has thicker lines than Season 1 due to the switchover to Flash animation.
  • Things That Go "Bump" in the Night: The Miseryville Moment "Sweet Dreams" is about one attacking Heloise. It turns out the monster should fear Heloise more though....
  • This Is My Side: Lucius tries this in "Lucius Lost" by trapping Jimmy on a very small half of the island. Jimmy doesn't mind though.
  • Timmy in a Well: Parodied in "Jimmy in the Big House" as Heloise doesn't understand a word Cerbee is saying. Then he farts in his sleep, and Heloise instantly understands everything about the situation Jimmy and Beezy are in.
  • Title Drop: From "Too Many Jimmys".
    Samy (On a malfunctioning factory machine): I found the problem, sir. (Pulls some Jimmy clones out) Too many Jimmys!
  • Toilet Humour: Pops up here and there, but one episode, "The Big Drip", was banned from Disney XD for this, as the episode was about Jimmy having a Potty Emergency.
  • Totally Radical: In "Scent of the Heinous", Lucius tries to be hip through random nonsensical slang to promote his "hip" new cologne. Jimmy comments that it's "kinda cool how uncool he is".
  • Troperiffic: For a relatively obscure show with two seasons for a total of 52 episodes, this page sure has a lot of tropes.
  • Two Guys and a Girl: Jimmy, Beezy, and Heloise.
  • Unexpected Kindness: In "Rear Pickle", Jimmy is worried that Mrs. Gherkin is an evil living pickle. He and Beezy sneak into her house, and Jimmy thinks he sees silhouettes of her attacking Beezy and Heloise, but she was actually just giving Beezy some pastries and braiding Heloise's hair. Jimmy apologizes for expecting the worst from her. Then this is subverted; after Jimmy and co. leave, Mrs. Gherkin takes off her disguise, revealing that she really is a sentient pickle and that she's hellbent on taking over Miseryville. Not that this lasts long, however, as Cerbee eats her just then.
  • Unicorn: Twinkles the Terrible from "The Outsiders".
  • Unintentionally Karmic: All of Jimmy’s cheerful endeavours and Unwanted Assistance brightens everyone’s day and ruins the misery Lucius tries to so hard to maintain, and often causes humiliation for him, too.
  • Unstoppable Mailman: Parodied in "Heloise's Secret Admirer" where Lazy Bum Beezy, working as a mailman for the episode, is already at Heloise's room with mail in hand.

  • Visual Pun:
    • In "Cellphone-itis", Beezy moans to Jimmy that he's "cracking up", causing him to then break into many small pieces.
    • In "Scent of a Heinous", a panicked Samy tells Jimmy that he's "having a meltdown". He then dissolves into a pile of green sludge.
  • Weather-Control Machine: The snow machine from "A Cold Day In Miseryville".
  • What Does This Button Do?: '"Rocket Jimmy".
    Dr. Scientist: Apparently, it destroys my house.
  • What Kind of Lame Power Is Heart, Anyway?: Heloise's bubble powers in "The Terrific Trio" cause Jimmy and Beezy to laugh at her. She immediately proves her worth by blowing bubbles into Jimmy's eyes, stinging them.
  • Wheel o' Feet: Jimmy has these in "The Racing Bug" as a result of being parasitized by the titular fleas.
  • When Trees Attack: "The Big Drip" has one grab Jimmy and toss him a good distance for trying to pee on him.
  • Who Even Needs a Brain?: In "Fused Together", Heloise rips out Dorkus' brain (and slaps him with it) after he sees her Jimmy Stalker Shrine. He is not inconvenienced other than being unable to remember anything.

  • Wicked Weasel: The Weavils are an entire race of unhygienic jerkass weasel monsters who enjoy messing around with Jimmy and the Heinous family.

    Beezy(to Lucius): Never get tired of that one, do you?

  • You Didn't Ask: A few episodes use this to hand wave Ass Pulls. Naturally, Played for Laughs.
  • You Know What You Did: Wayne keeps telling this to Beezy in "Ghostsmackers". What Beezy did was that he never ate the pizza crusts.
  • Zombie Apocalypse: "Zombie Pickle" is a spoof of this, with Ms. Gherkin turning everyone in Miseryville into pickle zombies.


Video Example(s):


Jimmy Two Shoes

Heloise chases Jimmy after he ruins the invention she just finished. She ends up bumping into and locking lips with Beezy, much to their disgust.

How well does it match the trope?
