this show is simply HORRENDOUS

this is a show that is even worse than class of 3000, which is what I used to consider the worst CN show, the characters are idiots it makes no sense and the jokes are also really bad and everybody on the whole world HATES this show, the movie was ok it is not good but I have seen much worse but the television series is so bad I only know of one cartoon network show that is worse, also in the movie 2 characters are Asian but in this series they are African-Americans... JUST WHY, also how is it possible that Jimmy's sister is an alien, how can cartoon characters from jimmy's mind bite REAL people, how can jimmy's retarded dad be the school's principal and so on. Also in one episode jimmy has a roller-coaster in his house, I am not kidding, this show is trash of trash and it would get a MINUS 1 if I could do that

This title has:

Too much violence

WHAT IS THIS PUKE? It was SUCH a rip-off of classic cartoons,the animation looked sloppy,and the voices made me want to mute the TV.Thankfully,OOJH has been cancelled,because no one was watching it.

Is It Any Good?

Parents say (4 ):
Kids say (24 ):

As if a constant barrage of cartoon personalities wasn't enough, Jimmy's family makes his animated friends look almost normal. His astronaut mom is in outer space (literally and figuratively), his adopted alien sister has little to do with him, and his dad (who's also a counselor at Jimmy's school) thinks the best way to resolve his son's popularity problems is by drawing maximum attention to them. To top it all off, Appleday's ne'er-do-well son Sonny (Matt Knudsen), who lives with the Roberts family, hasn't given up on forcibly extracting Jimmy's cartoon visions in his quest for success in the family business. With all this mayhem, it will be a wonder if Jimmy survives junior high in one piece.

Tweens who enjoyed Re-Animated will no doubt be glad to tune into Jimmy's continuing adventures. Aside from the outlandish plot and exaggerated characters (which account for much of the show's comedy), there's nothing here that's likely to concern parents; that said, the series is equally lacking in quality content -- it's just fun fluff. It is worth noting that the show is an improvement on the movie in terms of Jimmy's increased confidence and ability to fend off peer pressure, which is certainly a welcome change.
