The Good, The Bad and the Jimmy is an episode from Season 3.
When Jimmy accidentally loses control of Ted's toy train, he and SpongeBob are put on trial as train robbers.
Yipp-yi-oh bother! The gang, two robots named WALL-E and EVE and a boy named Ted are playing with his train set, though the animals are initially baffled by how the thing has no rudder or propeller, but Jimmy is obsessed with the train. Ted doesn't want them to touch the train until he gets back from lunch. To pass the time, Toaster suggests a game, "Guess Who's Sleeping." Toaster, Timmy and B.O.B. go off to sleep. Jimmy immediately can't wait for Ted and decides to play with the train set, despite that he's saying he's not touching the train, just the controls! Jimmy puts more tracks down... but the train runs off. Timmy, B.O.B. and Toaster come back from sleeping and discover that SpongeBob and Jimmy have taken the train. Toaster immediately has a Hand and Order-esque fantasy taking place in the old west, with Jimmy and SpongeBob as potential train robbers, dressed in bad guy like black threads, running away with the train. Beaver gets chased by the train, running through the mountain tracks. Timmy and B.O.B. runs off to find Sheriff Toaster. Jimmy doesn't really know how to control or stop the train. B.O.B. tells Toaster he has to catch the desperadoes. He makes Timmy, B.O.B., WALL-E and EVE his deputies. The train runs through the cactus covered land and through the western town, of which Toaster demands they stop, as Sheriff of this fantasy. Toaster tried to board the train... and goes after it with his deputies. Jimmy is still trying to stop the train. They find a pedal, but this causes the the train to slam its brakes so hard it is hurled through the air and now traveling in the opposite direction! Toaster, Timmy, B.O.B., WALL-E and EVE are chasing them on a handcar, and collect Beaver along the way. Jimmy tried to grab his lost hat, but gets caught on the hook, as they others get thrown free of the train, which winds up destroyed from a collision with the handcar. Toaster reluctantly decides to take SpongeBob in. SpongeBob doesn't know what he's supposed to have done. Beaver's the judge, with his swinging gallows, but SpongeBob thinks it will just be a ride on a swing set. Jimmy comes in the night and tries to break SpongeBob SquarePants out of jail, to ride into the sunset and live the happily ever afterlife (even though SpongeBob could've walked out easily due to there being no back wall). Jimmy confesses that he only borrowed the train. They figure they can set things right if they repair the train, and they attempt to do so, using only half the parts, but the "locomotive" takes off as they aren't looking. Toaster, Timmy, B.O.B., WALL-E and EVE find them. Jimmy tries to show them the train, but it's vanished! Some time later, Jimmy wants out of the cell... even though he and SpongeBob have only been there five minutes. EVE is surprised that their lives look more depressing than his. Beaver the Judge says it looks like a double-swinging tonight. Jimmy says that SpongeBob is innocent. Timmy wants to know what happened to the train, which smashes through Beaver's swing... and runs roughshod through the old west town, wreaking havoc and chasing Toaster. Jimmy vows to bring back the train and Toaster and paints tracks on the ground (trains can't resist following tracks, you know) and he says the train will eventually run out of steam and stop. Days later, it hasn't, but it eventually crashes thanks to a banana peel Jimmy threw on the track. Toaster thanks Jimmy for saving the town, even it if did take two weeks. SpongeBob says that Jimmy's not a train napper; he's a train borrower. They decide to give to let him off with a warning. Back in reality, Ted comes back and lets Jimmy use the controls to play with the toy train, but they all say they want to play the "Guess Who's Sleeping" game, and Ted decides to join in.
