Two months ago, I guest starred on a podcast called The Beanholes. This podcast discussed the attempted fourth season revival for Jimmy Neutron that I spearheaded. Excerpts from two of the four scripts I helped write were previously posted on this blog, but for the first time a complete script is now available for the public to read.
The script that is posted is for the episode entitled “Three’s a Crowd.” The primary focus of this episode is Cindy Vortex getting trapped in Jimmy’s lab with her rival, Betty Quinlan. In order to escape, Cindy must come to grips with the real reason she detests Betty so. Meanwhile, Carl leads the boys across town to recruit new members for the Llama Love Society.
The first draft of this script was beautifully penned by Saundra (I still attest that her first draft was the best of the four we wrote). Edward, Saundra, and myself polished the script together over multiple editing sessions. This script was also looked over and given a seal approval from Mike Gasaway, one of the directors for The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron, Boy Genius.
The full script is posted here. Please feel absolutely free to comment on whatever you did or didn’t like. If you do approve of this work, please share it with any other Jimmy Neutron or Nickelodeon fans you know!
I promise I won’t turn this blog into a mere string of my old fanfics, but I thought I would post my favorite one-shot that I wrote here. I consider this story, along with A Trip to Loch Ness, to be the most “realistic” Jimmy Neutron fanfics I wrote. That is, I can most easily consider them to be actual episodes of the show. This was my first experimentation with a looser, more free-flowing story that relied heavily on long dialogue that naturally spilled out of me while I wrote.
One other quick note: this was written before I learned the valuable lesson that characters shouldn’t say each other’s names every other sentence during dialogue. That was probably the easiest to use and most helpful writing tip I’ve ever gotten.
That’s enough blabbing, you can read more about my thoughts on this story (and my other fanfics) here. All of my other fanfics are also available here. I would love to hear any feedback on this story (or any of my others), so please don’t hesitate to leave a comment or question below. Thanks for checking this out!
Cynthia Vortex did not break. She could not remember the last time she had cried or even come close to doing so. But as she sat on her bed with her parents standing before her, their most painful words racing around inside her head, she knew that she was now fighting the inevitable.
