Doesn't Live Up To The J.N. Reputation
This is one of the greatest cartoons ever to hit television. It is all- around well-written and plotted out. Conversely, Win Lose or Kaboom and the other lengthened episodes are lackluster in comparison with the regular 10-20 minute episodes; they are not as well thought out. I watch it now and my jaw drops at the things I used to miss when I was younger. There are subtle moments that would go right over a kid's head but those moments make the show unmistakably original. Complete with real scientific explanations behind the mishaps in the plot, James Bond parodies, and vocab words like "quip, pedantic, perspicacity," one must wonder how differently the writers think from the creators of the mindless filth we pump into our children's brains now. The first two seasons were clever and well thought-out, but the third isn't even worth a watch. Presumably, this is because their award- winning production company, DNA Productions, went defunct at the end of the third season. Hopefully, there will be a Jimmy Neutron revival, as said studio has been reformed out of the ashes.
