Judge David Johnson thinks Wanda and Cosmo should electrocute that egotistical little wank Jimmy Neutron with their wands.

2D vs. 3D
Two of Nickelodeon's big names in animation, Timmy Turner of The Fairly Oddparents and Jimmy Neutron of Jimmy Neutron, Boy Genius, team up in this super-sized collision of two worlds. Is it gold, or yet another jumbo headache?
• "When Nerds Collide"
Through a few feats of strength, a mental acumen contest or two, and loads of barbs, Timmy and Jimmy try to outdo one another and land Cindy. Little do they know, but the nefarious Dr. Calamitous has plans of his own. Desperate to defeat his nemesis Jimmy Neutron, he hatches a plan to tap into the powers of the fairies, finally giving him the juice he needs to defeat a small boy.
His meddling, unfortunately, throws Fairy World out of whack, and the legions of imprisoned "anti-fairies" (or evil fairies) escape and invade Timmy's universe. Their plan: to keep the Earth permanently stuck on Friday the 13th, the bad luck fueling their evil machinations.
Timmy and Jimmy must put aside their egos—as well as their burgeoning hormonal system—and find a way to defeat the anti-fairies. But even that may not be enough, as Dr. Calamitous has one more trick up his sleeve…
Let me start by saying this: thank the Lord there were no musical numbers. That fact alone elevates this episode far above similar extended installments of The Fairly Oddparents. Overall, this is a pretty good piece of 50-minute animation. Though I despise Jimmy Neutron with the venom of a billion snakes, Timmy and company bring much-needed charm and wit to offset that little bastard and his ilk. The switching between Jimmy's CGI world and Timmy's two-dimensional existence was clever, and it was a kick to see Timmy rendered in 3D (though he looked like a deformed trout). The story was typically ADHD, but the enjoyable writing and out-there sight gags were there. A solid treat for fans of both series.
