  • 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.

Yes, just look at that hair.

Following the success of Cartoon Network's two-hour live-action/animation original Made for TV Movie Re-Animated comes Out of Jimmy's Head. The story continues directly from the film with Jimmy Roberts, who's received a brain transplant after a train collision at the famous Gollyworld theme park (and somehow is not only fully functional, but has grown back his long, shaggy hair almost immediately thereafter). Jimmy ends up receiving the frozen brain of famous cartoonist Walt Disney Milt Appleday, which leads to Jimmy being able to see all of Milt's cartoon characters in the real world - Mickey Mouse Golly Gopher, his girlfriend Minnie Mouse Dolly Gopher, Goofy Crocco, Donald Duck Tux the Penguin and Tom and Jerry Pickles and Prickles. Milt's son and dastardly evil resident villain, Sonny Appleday, wants his father's brain so he can create cartoons like his father.

Jimmy's family have allowed Sonny to take up residence under the impression that he's a college student, so now he plots effortlessly to nab Jimmy's brain with a bunch of "evil" schemes. The family itself consists of a middle school principal for a dad, an astronaut for a mother, and an alien sister. Jimmy is best friends with Craig, who effortlessly tries to be part of the cool crowd, and crushes on his best friend's sister Robin, an obedient overachiever.

The series itself has lasted for only two seasons and people believe it was due to The Writer's Strike of 2007 but all of the episodes were finished by then. Also, they only wanted to make twenty episodes of the series in the first place. Ratings and critical reception of the show were mediocre, partly due to viewers being skeptical of having live action shows on an animation channel, among other things. Despite this, the show may have influenced Cartoon Network to gain more live-action shows like Level Up.
