It's better than Lee Iacocca saying something like "fo shizzle." Chrysler has joined up with Nickelodeon to shill their newly revamped minivans. With the addition of Sirius TV to beam content off the birds and into the backseat, it makes perfect sense for the two to team up. I'd rather interact with our child, but some parents just need a break from their little monsters, and video screens in the back seem to shut them up for a while. Cartoon characters have been used to sell cars before; even the Peanuts gang promoted Ford Falcons back in the '60s. Perhaps there will be some kind of Joe Camel effect, and the kids will specifically request that mom and pop take a ride at the Chrysler dealer when it's time for a new Wagon Queen Family Truckster. The new Chrysler minis are cool, with their video systems, flexible swivelly seats and if patriotism appeals to you, they're the last US brand in the game.

      stupid dopes.
      i know i wouldnt spend $ on a jimmy neuton edition.
      and i dont know may adults that would.
      buying a minivan was bad enough, but having the JN edition would make you the biggest weenie onthe road.
      how many WB edition vans did ford sell before they realized it was stupid?

      oh and my 2003 dodge/chrysler minivan was the biggest load of crap ever made in the USA...
      Jimmy should hang his head low...its a sad day.

        I was about to say, "Getting Sponge Bob to show was cheaper than Jimmy Neutron?" Its a good thing I read sometimes.

        uh, there's not really a Jimmy Neutron edition van - it was a catchy post title, though. If you read the post, the crux of the biscuit is that Nickelodeon and Chrysler are teaming up to sell the new vans.

        BTW: the WB vans were GM.

      Chryslers are for people stuck in the 1990s.

      The Saturn Outlook or any of the other GM variants are not minivans...a proper minivan can carry a 4X8 sheet of plywood flat on the floor with all the doors closed...these crossovers can't. They have none of the towing capabilities of a traditional BOF SUV and can't hauls like a minivan...and with little or no better MPG.

      I guess they look better and that's what counts?
