Jimmy, Carl and Sheen at Downtown Retroville


The hovercar's route in Stranded

Retroville, Texas is the main setting of the Jimmy Neutron franchise.


In the episode Stranded, there is a scene where Jimmy and his friends take off in the Hover Car for a trip to the equator. Following an argument between Cindy and Jimmy, a map animation that shows the hovercar's route can easily be traced back almost precisely to Austin, Texas. Looking at Jimmy’s watch you can see that Retroville time is 12:00 and so is Chicago time, which suggests that Retroville is located in the central standard time zone. The phone number of the Candy Bar, as shown by a receipt, has a 985 area code, which is located in southern Louisiana. Although the reciept was shown in the Jimmy Timmy Power Hour 3: The Jerkinators!, which is considered non-canon, so that might not be the canon phone number.
