"Time is Money" is the second segment of the fourth episode of The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius.


Jimmy wants a brand new set of encyclopedias, but his parents can't afford it, so Jimmy goes back in time to convince Hugh to invest with McSpanky's because they'll be rich and Jimmy will have the encyclopedia set. He changes the past and they become millionaires, but when he sees that his folks have become busy, neglectful, snobby jerks, Jimmy realizes that rich life isn't all it's cracked up to be, so he goes back to the past and restores everything.


  • The past resembles the late 60s and early 70s, which is ironic, since Retroville is supposed to resemble the 1950s (hence the name).
  • Hilgo is the lunch lady at Jimmy's school.
  • McSpanky's origins is somewhat of a reference to the origin of KFC.
