'I got me some goons to kill!
~ Jimmy

Jimmy Jitterman is the minor antagonist from the Red Dwarf novel Better Than Life. He is a head-case murder and brother of Tonto Jitterman.



Jimmy Jitterman is actually a mad murderer from the novel Young, Bad and Dangerous to Know Rimmer once read. While Rimmer is playing the game Better Than Life, his psyche brings Jimmy and his brother Tonto to the game.

In the game, Jimmy hijacks rich people's bodies and takes them on joyrides until he is arrested and gets life in in a prison as soundwave. Rimmer later ends up in the cell with him, Ernest and Trixie LaBouche. Although Jimmy doesn't talk much and only snarls at everyone, he and his cellmates manage to make an escape plan. They call the guard into the cell while Jimmy pretends to be sick because of "some food he heard about." The four soundwaves then fly out, but only Rimmer and Jimmy eventually manage to escape through the walkie talkies into the truck Jimmy's brother Tonto stole. As the soundwaves need some bodies to live in, Tonto heads to the storehouse and kills the guard, only to learn Jimmy's body misses. Much to Rimmer's anger, Jimmy takes his and the brothers force Rimmer to take the body of a prostitute, Trixie LaBouche. When six guards rush in to stop them, Jimmy in Rimmer's body refuses to escape and starts shooting madly, killing two and severely injuring the third. The trio is eventually forced to flee, as Jimmy is shot twice.

Two brothers and Rimmer hide in the hotel where Jimmy spends all the time drinking. Unfortunately, they behave bad to Rimmer, call him names (e.g. Sweetie or Doll) and force him to do all cooking and houseworks. In short, they take him only as a woman. When he tries to argue, it leads only to slaps and insults from the brothers. Two days pass and the trio becomes out of money. Tonto quickly finds a solution, buys some sexual tools and plans to use Rimmer as a prostitute to get money.

That night, while Tonto and Rimmer are out looking for a "job", police do a big raid on them. One cop shoots Tonto dead in the streets, setting Rimmer free. Meanwhile, another fifteen officers of the Special Weapons and Tactics unit fight psychopathic Jimmy in the hotel who obviously decides to kill them all. He is eventually shot dead by at least 300 bullets.
