Worlds and animation styles will collide when Nickelodeon combines two of its most popular cartoon series for the upcoming special The Jimmy/Timmy Power Hour. Premiering Friday, May 7, at 8 p.m., the show will see The Fairly OddParents’ Timmy Turner go 3D in Retroville while Jimmy Neutron takes a 2D turn in Dimmsdale.
In The Jimmy/Timmy Power Hour, Timmy needs to get his hands on a gadget for his science fair so his fairy godparents send him to Jimmy Neutron’s lab. The two kids end up switching places when Jimmy is accidentally poofed into Timmy’s 2D world. While Timmy has everyone in Retroville believing he is a boy genius, Jimmy is in Dimmsdale battling fairy-obsessed school teacher Mr. Crocker, who manages to get into the fairy world with the intention of taking over. Timmy soon has his hands full as well when Jimmy’s robotic dog, Goddard, grows to monstrous proportions, malfunctions and tries to destroy Retroville.
The Fairly OddParents, a Nicktoons production, was created by Butch Hartman and is produced by Nickelodeon Animation Studios in Burbank, Calif. The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron, Boy Genius was created by John A. Davis and is produced at DNA Prods. in Irving, Texas.
The Jimmy/Timmy Power Hour will be rebroadcast on Saturday, May 8, at 7 p.m. and Sunday, May 9, at 5 p.m. It will then make its way to home video on May 11.
