Out of Jimmy's Head is a show that aired on Cartoon Network from 2007-2008. It is based on Re-Animated.AMW The show is live action with animated characters just like the movie.


Jimmy got hit by a train at Gollyworld. The only way to help him is to replace his brain. His brain belongs to Milt Appleday, a cartoonist. He is now able to see his cartoon characters.

Why It Sucks

  1. Unfunny, annoying and stupid jokes and humor, that are often fart jokes and toilet humor.
  2. Cliché plots. It doesn't even follow the events of the film.
  3. The cartoon characters have no important roles in any of the episodes.
  4. Horrible voice acting, even from actors such as Bill Dwyer and Dominic James.
  5. Some characters are downright hateful. Here are two examples: Jimmy is a boy who you won't put in middle school in real life. Craig enjoys using his friend for cash.
  6. It is really strange that Jimmy's sister is an alien, and their mom which is an astronaut who found her.
  7. There is a overused horrible laugh track that plays often. The story gets irritating after a while because of this laugh track.
  8. Robin and Craig Wheeler are "blackwashed". They were originally Asian in the film.
  9. Downright silly premise, even more than in the original film.
  10. Sonny Appleday is a disturbing and really pathetic villain, because he wants to get Jimmy's brain.
  11. It's never explained how Jimmy is able to automatically see cartoons.
  12. This show was what kick-started what's known as Cartoon Network's first dark age in the late 2000's and started the trend of live-action shows on a network focusing on animated programs, such as for example the infamous CN Real block in 2009, that were mostly mediocre and forgettable.
  13. Some plots make no sense. One episode for example involved Jimmy having a rollercoaster in his house, and it's about as weird as you'd expect it to be.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. The first 7 episodes had no laugh track.
  2. Everything else follows the film's source material.
  3. The show has a pretty catchy theme song.


  • There was a rumor going around that this was once lost media. When it resurfaced on YouTube, it was called "Schizophrenic Jimmy" because of the premise.
  • It was the only Cartoon Network series to be affected by the 2007 Writer's Guild Strike.


This show received mostly negative reviews. It has a 2.5 rating on TV.com and 2.2 rating on IMDb. Neil Genzlinger of The New York Times wrote "Cast aside all that clutter, though, and this is really just another show about a seventh grader trying to fit in. It’s also a show with a sly sense of humor when it’s not being self-consciously frentic", but praised Bil Dwyer for his comedic role. It is considered one of the worst Cartoon Network shows ever.
