The Jimmy Timmy Power Hour (2004)
Struggling with his science project, Timmy Turner ("The Fairly OddParents") wishes that he could be sent to the best laboratory in any universe. When his fairy godparents, Cosmo and Wanda, offer him this wish, Timmy is sent to Retroville, the fictional universe of child prodigy Jimmy Neutron (The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron:Boy Genius) to Dimmsdale, Timmys universe, the same when he activates a device designed by Cosmo and Wanda. As they attempt to return to their respective settings, the characters make friends with the various side characters that are not of their own universe, and Timmy becomes attracted to Jimmy's classmate, Cindy Vortex. A defect with Goddard, Jimmy's robotic dog, dooms both characters at the same time.
The Jimmy Timmy Power Hour 2: When Nerds Collide! (2006)
Timmy and Jimmy enter each other's worlds for a second time, both wanting to ask Cindy out to their school dance celebrating Friday the 13th. In an attempt to gain Cindy's affections, the two engage in a battle of smarts that sends Timmy and his friends to Dimmsdale. As Timmy seeks to prove that Jimmy is a fraudulent scientist, Cosmo and Wanda struggle to keep their existence a secret in Retroville. Professor Calamitous (of Jimmy's universe) unleashes a surge of anti-fairies from Dimmsdale that threaten their Earth's rotation, and head fairy Jorgan of Timmy's universe gets angered by Timmy's friends and their manipulation of fairy magic.
The Jimmy Timmy Power Hour 3: The Jerkinators! (2006)
In their third and final encounter, Timmy and Jimmy make amends while trying to defeat the enemies from their own universes—including a monster that they concoct together.
Each film in the Jimmy Timmy Power Hour series combines the 2D animation of The Fairly OddParents and the 3D computer-generated imagery of The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron. This blending of animation techniques was a technical challenge for the studios responsible for both series, according to Keith Alcorn—director of the Jimmy Neutron production company DNA Productions.
