    Out of Jimmy's Head


    Golly Gopher is a cartoon gopher from Re-Animated and its spin-off, Out of Jimmy's Head. He first appears at the beginning of the movie, Re-Animated, on the TV screen in a cartoon, A Hero in Training. Before Out of Jimmy's Head premiered, he got into a bad start in one of the absolute worst things that Cartoon Network has ever done, Re-Animated. Ever since then, he's become one of the most hated Cartoon Network characters.

    Why He Should Be Yoinked Out of Jimmy’s Head

    1. He's a manipulative, egotistical, narcissistic jerk who has little to no empathy for others. For example, he uses Jimmy in order to become a star again once he becomes immensely popular.
    2. In fact, he can be best described as a rip-off of Mickey Mouse (by design) and Bugs Bunny (by personality). However, he is much less likable than the previous two characters.
    3. He never takes no for an answer, as he angrily shouts at Jimmy that he doesn't care what he wants, made Jimmy who he is, and that he can't say no to him, while ranting and raving like a lunatic. If Sonny Appleday is the main antagonist of Out of Jimmy's Head, then he's the true main antagonist of Re-Animated!
    4. He pushes his best friend, Crocco, around in an episode of Out of Jimmy's Head, but thankfully it's a flashback.
    5. He is very immature, as he constantly yells during the majority of his scenes and when he saw that his reputation is shattered, he starts crying like a baby.
    6. He frequently gives Jimmy terrible advice, notably in Re-Animated.
    7. Both of his voice actors (the late Paul Reubens (who died in July 30th, 2023) and Carlos Alazraqui) did poor jobs voicing him. It is very grating as well, especially when he's yelling or crying.
    8. He's also a hypocrite as he condemns Craig for being selfish, yet he himself is as selfish as him.
    9. He was the main reason why Re-Animated and Out of Jimmy's Head was hated.

    Redeeming Qualities

    1. He does apologize for his actions, which shows that he can be caring at times.
    2. He is a bit more tolerable in Out of Jimmy's Head, the first few minutes of Re-Animated and in an animated short, A Hero in Training, as he's now not as bad as he was in Re-Animated.
    3. He has some funny one-liners in the TV series, such as:
      • "WHAT?!"
      • "YOU CALL THIS LIGHTLY TOASTED?!"
      • "FOOD FIGHT! GOTTA GET DOWN!"
    4. His design is admittedly cute, especially for a cartoon.
    5. While not exactly doing a good job voicing him, his voice acting by Carlos Alazraqui in the TV series is a mild improvement over Paul Reubens voice acting for him in the movie.
      • Speaking of Reubens, he somewhat did a decent job at least when Golly isn't screaming or crying.
    6. As hypocritical as he may be, at least he has a point about Craig.
