Toying with Jenny is the first half of episode 13 of season 2 of My Life as a Teenage Robot. It first aired on Nickelodeon in the United States on April 22nd, 2005.

Synopsis

After premiering on her first cover story on the Tremorton Tattler, Jenny is greeted by a self-proclaimed toy maker by the name of Mr. G. Petto, who makes a deal with Jenny to create a toy brand line of dolls based on her resemblance. These "Action Jenny Dolls" as they are called, sell like hotcakes and Jenny is taken in by the fame. However, it soon is revealed that these innocent dolls are actually one of Krakus' and Vexus' plan to conquer the world.

Quotes

Sheldon (To Brad and Tuck): Guys, guys! Jenny is there signing autographs, and they're giving away free hats with every 200 dollar purchase! Now I got an Action Jenny for every day of the year!

Trivia

  • Sheldon spent $200, which means he purchased 20 Action Jenny dolls (1 Action Jenny toy is 10 dollars).
  • Mr. G. Petto's name is likely a pun on the character Geppetto, the woodcarver and toy maker who created Pinocchio, the puppet who came to life (much like the Jenny dolls in the episode).
  • The scene in which the Jenny dolls come to life and attack their owners bears resemblance in some ways to the scene in Toy Story in which Sid's abused, disassembled mutant toys come to life. In particular, one of the Jenny dolls takes a form that strongly resembles the mutant toy known as "Baby Face", with its robotic and sinister spider-like body unfittingly attached to its cute doll head.
