This show has a wiki of its own: Out of Jimmy's Head Wiki.

Out of Jimmy's Head was a live-action/animated television series on Cartoon Network. It premiered on Friday, September 14, 2007. The movie, Re-Animated was made about a year ago and this show was a series about it. Due to bad ratings and the Writer's Guild of America 2007 strike, Cartoon Network put the show on hiatus, then stopped airing episodes and making newer ones ever since May 29, 2008. Only 20 episodes were made when it was finished and all references of the show were later removed from the Cartoon Network Video. When this show was on the network, there was a President's Day celebration with a new episode of Out of Jimmy's Head. That was the only special it was in (8:00AM-2:00PM). This show also aired in Cartoon Network Thursday Nights until it was cancelled.

Following this, Cartoon Network never discussed about this show anymore. This is even refused to be aired on the sister channel Boomerang.


The pilot was that Jimmy got hit by a train at Gollyworld, and the only way to help him is to replace his brain. The brain belonged to McApple Day, the creator of the cartoons in the show, making Jimmy able to see McApple's cartoons as if they were really there. Even though Jimmy's brain was removed, and McApple's was put in its place, Jimmy still somehow retained all of his memories and personality and gained none of the donor's.



  • A DVD release of Out of Jimmy's Head was released exclusively in the UK. However, it only contains three episodes.
    • Following the bad ratings and Writer's Guild of America 2007 strike, the series was never released on DVD in the United States, nor is it available on any streaming websites, leaving it abandoned since.
    • Because of that, the show was considered to be lost media, since episodes of the show were very rare, if not borderline impossible to find. As of 2022, however, all episodes of the show have been found and re-uploaded onto YouTube by fans. Unfortunately, only 10 of the show's episodes are available to watch in its original English audio, while the other 10 episodes can only be watched in foreign language dubs, such as Romanian and Italian.
    • As of 2022, only its pilot movie is available to view on the Cartoon Network app.

Appearances in other media

  • Before the movie and the series premiered, Golly made a cameo in the Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends two part special, Good Wilt Hunting, where he is seen on a poster that parodies the 1996 live action/animated hybrid Looney Tunes movie, Space Jam.
  • Characters from this spinoff made mild comebacks, in spite of Cartoon Network disregarding the show after the bad ratings and the 2007 writer’s strike:
    • Golly, Dolly, and Crocco were shown on Cartoon Network's 20th anniversary poster.
    • Golly made a cameo appearance in the OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes episode, Crossover Nexus, where he appears as one of the Cartoon Network heroes that were summoned and defeated by Strike, the episode's main antagonist.
