"Normal Boy" is the first segment of the second episode of The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius.


Sick of being super smart because it gets him nothing but problems, Jimmy creates a helmet called "Brain-Drain 8000," an invention that zaps him of his genius, but he accidentally turns himself into a complete moron due to a malfunction. When there's flaming meteor that's headed straight for Retroville (ironically caused by Jimmy's latest invention), he must change back to normal or the town will be destroyed.
