'Jimmy Neutron' Voice Actor Teases Comeback of Iconic Franchise

It's nearly twenty-one years since Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius hit theaters and the better part of 15 since The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius, the animated series based on the movie on Nickelodeon aired its final episode. As you know by now, it's never too long for Hollywood to revive a property for a reboot and in the ever-expanding world of streaming video, revivals are now more possible than ever.

Despite 2010's Planet Sheen spin-off, Jimmy Neutron hasn't been seen for quite some time. However, one of the original voice actors has teased a possible comeback: Mark DeCarlo, who played Hugh Neutron, Jimmy's dad.

'Serious question guys, do you want to see Jimmy Neutron come back?? Well it's not an impossible task because of the fact so many of you love it so much! All it takes is enough of you individually writing letters to @Nickelodeon to bring it back!' he tweeted.

'You can find the studio's address online and with the price of a stamp, I know if enough of you guys chip in, there'll be a good chance! I promise nothing, confirm nothing, etc. But I know one thing for sure and its that you guys truly love this show and care about it coming back and we hope so too.

'It's incredible to see this entire generation of internet creators having been inspired by our little part in animation and it's become an important part in so many lives and I'd love to see that generation get to sit down with their kids to enjoy what made their days so special.'

Debi Derryberry, who voiced the titular character, recently marked the movie's 20th anniversary in December by giving away an original signed ticket to the premiere. However, while she's made similar teases over the years regarding a comeback, Jimmy Neutron's return remains unconfirmed.

Rob Paulsen, who voiced Carl, also said, 'I don't think it would be a bad thing at all to reboot Jimmy Neutron. I think that's one of those shows that a lot of people would love to see again. It was very good. Really smart. That wouldn't surprise me.'

Keith Alcorn, a writer, director and co-creator of Jimmy Neutron has also expressed his support for a Jimmy Neutron reboot.

The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius is available to stream on Paramount+. Try it FREE at A complete series DVD, featuring all 55 episodes of the series and all three The Jimmy Timmy Power Hour crossover specials with The Fairly OddParents is also available from Shout! Factory.
