"Aaughh!! Wilderness!!" is the second segment in the twelfth episode in The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius.


Hugh takes Jimmy, Sheen, and Carl on a camping trip into the wilderness (that is not the campground), allowing no technology whatsoever. If Carl and Sheen refuse to come camping, Jimmy will be forced to show embarrassing photos of the two playing with Pomona beach Debby dolls to the whole school.

Jimmy sets the camp and he had a hologram butler named Rayburn. When Hugh comes back he destroys the camp and he tells the kids that it is all Jimmy's fault. When Hugh takes them on the trail, it becomes dark, and Hugh reveals that this was all his fault and he was a terrible camper, but Jimmy reassures him that he's still his father, and even Sheen is upset that he couldn't even start a fire. They hear a bear and they see a squirrel, but right above the squirrel was a bear. Hugh, Jimmy, Sheen, and Carl run around and get chased by the bear. When they get to the cliff, the bear has closed in on his victims, Jimmy finds rocks and he told Hugh to make fire and he also tells Sheen and Carl to help him distract the bear. Hugh successfully lights up a torch, but the bear swats it out of Hugh's hands and it falls into the ground but then, just when the bear was about to kill the four, Goddard shows up. He roars at the bear and he runs away, never to bother them again. Judy arrives and she told them Goddard attracted the explosion of their camp. So they have camped in their yard.


Hugh: "Come on boys! Follow me into this mosquito-infested bog!"

Hugh: " It's no use! We're done for and it's all my fault! The truth is I'm a rotten camper! There, I said it! The other Acorn Lads used to dunk my head in the bug juice! I can't even make a stupid fire!"

Jimmy: "There, there, Dad. We'll find a way out of this. I don't care if you're a mediocre camper, I think you're a great dad!"

Hugh: "Thanks, son. I needed to hear that."

Sheen: "So you couldn't even make a fire."
