• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

  • Does anyone else think it weird that Jimmy Parents are never seen or talk about?
    • Well, how old is Jimmy supposed to be, anyway? Not that it matters, seeing as how he's in Hell.
    • Although the premise of him getting there by having been hit by a bus was discarded in favor of a less concrete establishment of how he got to Miseryville... I'd assume that however he got there, they ended up not coming along.
  • What does Heloise's lower body looks like? Not only do we never see her legs (or feet), but she moves in a way which suggests that she doesn't even have any.
    • Are you new to Limited Animation?
    • Heloise is the creator of all these complex machines and designs. She may never have had legs (she is a denizen of Miseryville, after all, and how many normal humans are there?) or she may have replaced them. I'd go with the former.
      • Actually in "Heloise's Big Secret", she does have legs and feet since she tap danced on a sewer lid to get access to her secret experiment.
      • And in "There Will Be Chocolate", where she has to waddle to move, she clearly has two feet.
  • Um......... is it ever mentioned... ANYWHERE... that Jimmy is in Hell? Because the show MAKES NO SENSE! I watched several episodes and not once is it explained as to why there is this seemingly normal human boy living in a world of monsters. It puzzles me to the point where I can't even ENJOY it.
    • Yes. I don't know where, but this information must come from somewhere.
    • Check the link under Single Woman Seeks Good Man on the main page, it links to a few details listed by Edward Kay. I think it's pretty obvious to anyone old enough that Miseryville is Hell, and anyone young enough probably wouldn't care.
    • The theory that Miseryville is Hell seems to have been Jossed by the episode where they go to space as well as the season 2 opening, which show Miseryville is actually another planet or at least part of it.
    • Not neccessarly. It could just mean that Hell isn't located on Earth.
      • It also has to be taken with a grain of salt, as in one episode, Jimmy visits the Himalayas to pick bread from a mountaintop bush to make a sandwich for a manipulative Weavil — I wish I could say it makes sense in context, but it really doesn't. Speaking of...
  • If Miseryville is Hell (Or a reasonable equivalent), as is implied by various aspects (including red sky, red water, being led by a demon named Lucius, and the preoccupation with causing misery)... why is Jimmy free to leave to say, live in the woods free of rules, or go to the Himalayas to pick bread? Granted, they don't turn out to be much better than Miseryville, but still.
    • You just answered your own question. Everywhere in Miseryville is horrible, so Lucius doesn't bother to stop anyone who tries to leave. Plus, it's been established that Lucius VII is highly incompetent, at least compared to his ancestors. Not to mention, it has been shown that he's completely dependent on Heloise, who probably makes sure Jimmy's allowed to roam unharmed.
  • So, according to Word of God, Lucius has some pretty terrifying powers, to the point where he can remake Miseryville on a whim. The only reason he doesn't use them is to prove he can rule without them. Fair enough, that sounds perfectly IC for Lucius. But it raises the question as to why he hasn't used these in some other circumstances. In both Rocket Jimmy and Air Force None he's put into some life threatening situations that he could easily get out of with these powers, but doesn't, even when he's clearly panicking. Is he really willing to die before he admits he needs them?
    • It's possible since he's so used to not using them, in times of panic, he forgets he has them entirely.
  • Anybody else notice how the water is Off-Model in the episode Wish You Weren't Here? It's blue instead of red. It was probably just a mistake on the animator's part, but it still kind of bothers me.
    • It happened again in Lucius Lost. Maybe the regular water is blue, while Miseryville water is red (or, likely, lava).
      • This makes sense, the color of the water could vary depending on location. There's been explicitly red water in previous episodes, so it may depend on where exactly the water is.
  • Does anyone think Jimmy acted kind of OOC in Heloise, Shmeloise? I mean, most of the episode with the Oblivious to Love thing even in the most obvious circumstances was IC, but throwing Heloise in a mud puddle so Shmeloise and himself could literally walk over her seems veering into Jerkass territory.
  • How old is Heloise? She seems a bit young to be a serial killer, but then again I've heard of murderers who have killed at young ages.
    • 14, according to Word of God. I think she's just meant to be short/tiny for her age.
    • 14 is still young for a serial killer but.. Meh.
  • Has Word of God actually confirmed the whole "Heloise and Jimmy were humans that got hit by a bus and were sent to hell together" thing? The show seems to imply that Jimmy came there from some other location, the second theme song states, "He's not from around here, if you know what I mean!" and in Bird Brained Heloise of all people sarcastically says, "Remind me where you're from, again?" when Jimmy is surprised that Miseryville birds can talk. Word of God confirmed that Heloise is human, so if she died at the same time Jimmy did, why would she ask that?
    • I believe Edward Kay has said that was the original pitch. It might simply not apply anymore.
  • How does Saffi have a house, being how she is?
    • I've only watched the first season, but maybe she has a guardian or caretaker?
  • Why are Jimmy and Heloise seemingly the only humans in Miseryville? Did no other humans ever get sent to hell?
  • In the episode, "I've Totally Shredded My Cheese", why did Jimmy say that in the first place? If he said, "I've totally shredded my jeans." that would have made sense because the crotch of his pants were destroyed, so my did he say cheese?
