Sorry about just having the title card; I couldn't find a good screenshot for this episode.

Anyway, I think at this point, nobody will disagree that not all the "science" in Jimmy Neutron was correct. But one complaint I disagree with is from the episode "Stranded," where at the end of the episode, Jimmy starts arguing with Cindy that Australia isn't a continent (it is, of course). But that's not the point of the scene; Jimmy's probably well aware that Australia is a continent, he just wants an excuse to argue with Cindy. It's sort of like Calvin and Susie from "Calvin and Hobbes"; Jimmy and Cindy fighting (at least in public) is their form of flirting.

So, what does that have to do with this episode? Well, I've seen a complaint about how Jimmy's jet pack hats at the beginning of the episode are powered by gold, which is a non-renewable resource. To that, I point out the scene in the movie where Jimmy is able to form pearls and a diamond from scallops and coal; chances are that he'd have a way to make gold too. Now that that's out of the way, what's the main reason I like this episode? Well...now that I've had to deal with a generic retail job (it was general retail, not fast food, but still), it was nice to show just how mind-numbing a retail job can be. Now, I'm not saying all retail workers are dumb; it's just frustrating when you know you can do better than the boring, repetitive tasks that are usually given to you in a retail job.

And honestly, the futuristic makeover Jimmy gives to McSpanky's is pretty impressive. But of course, since the AI itself looks like HAL, and this is Jimmy Neutron, of course it backfires. But think about it...if you were to take away the danger of the AI going nuts, wouldn't it be awesome if fast food restaurants had robots that could take your order just by reading your taste buds?

I love this episode
I love how You can relate to Jimmy in the first half. He's friends get cool jobs McSpanky's while he gets the crappy job. I love The montage of Jimmy,Carol and Sheen trying to find which job to get its so done well. I also love The flying McSpankys,Its so weird but creative.

Yeah, jobs like retail and fast food are not good for people who constantly need to be challenged.
