"Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius" has so many bright colors and whirring parts that you wish it were either on your Christmas tree or beneath it. Whether you want something this shiny and shrink-wrapped on a movie screen is a whole other issue and, as is customary with such things, may depend on how old you are. Digitally animated in the manner of 1950s puppet shows (Anyone out there old enough to remember "Rootie Kazootie"?), "Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius" is a spawn of the Nickelodeon cable network.

EXCLUSIVE: Could the massive success of “Ted” - with $120 million in box office after two weekends, it's outpacing R-rated juggernauts “Bridesmaids” and “The Hangover” - prompt a run on comedies about a man and his whimsical childhood pals? Steve Oedekerk hopes so. The veteran comedy writer behind movies like “Bruce Almighty” and “The Nutty Professor” has penned a script titled “Escape From Dabble Drive” that plays on a similar theme as “Ted.” He and his representatives are aiming to set up the human-furball hybrid at a studio that will release the movie as early as the 2013 holidays, with Oedekerk also directing the picture.

Amid all the hoopla this year over the commercially cuddly boogeymen of Disney-Pixar's "Monsters, Inc." and DreamWorks-PDI's "Shrek," there's been a cute little guy flying under the radar. His name? Jimmy Neutron. If you don't know who he is, just ask any kid, because he's probably no stranger to them. The computer-generated star of Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon Movies' upcoming animated feature film "Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius" might be unfamiliar to many adults.

Voice actress Candi Milo has closed escrow on her Calabasas home for $836,000. She had remodeled the Tuscan-influenced contemporary, built in 1971, updating the kitchen and 21/2 bathrooms and adding cherry floors and an indoor-outdoor sound system. Four bedrooms and a den are within the home's 2,103 square feet. Milo, 45, can be heard on animated TV series including "Planet Sheen" (2010-11), "The Replacements" (2006-09), "W.I.T.C.H. " (2004-06) and "The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius" (2002-06)

It has been many years since I bothered to get up on a Saturday morning just to turn on a television. But believe me, I put in that time in my time, back when all TV was broadcast TV, and when for a few hours each week the few networks there were all belonged to We the Children. Television has since changed, of course; there are multiple cable networks devoted to supplying the small fry with cartoons and what else they crave, if not quite around the clock, through as many hours as they are likely to be watching.

The star of "Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius" is an inventor, part Einstein, part Bart Simpson. He blows a gum bubble big enough to float him to school when he misses the bus. He creates a pair of pants that put themselves away at the end of the day, and he builds a toaster that ejects slices of browned bread at rocket speed.

A decade ago, when the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences created the Oscar for animated feature, the new category's nominees included "Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius," a Nickelodeon-produced movie memorable for little more than its belch jokes. Ten years on, the competition has become much fiercer: This year, the three films vying for the prize are all critical darlings that had to beat out two other well-reviewed box-office hits to earn a nomination. The three nominees are Pixar's "Toy Story 3," the highest-grossing animated movie of all time and the culmination of a franchise that revolutionized the way animated films are made; DreamWorks Animation's "How to Train Your Dragon," another computer-graphics blockbuster that set a new benchmark for 3-D with its sweeping flying sequences; and "The Illusionist," an independently produced French film with very little dialogue that's a love letter to the waning art of hand-drawn animation.
