4y-Records is a comic strip and animated series about a clerk (usually referred to as "the 4y-Guy") who works at an independent record store and has to deal with the idiocy of his customers. Somewhat like Randal from the movie Clerks, but angrier.

In the comic strip, several recognizable characters from other JIM series's can be seen, including Gloomy Blue (who also worked as a clerk in certain strips), and Germaine in younger and older form (though one or both of these may just be people who resemble Germaine, as they could not exist at the same time). Also, the character Fez makes several appearances in the animated series

Germaine also made an appearance in a single panel strip as a starving musician saying "If I was Mariah Carey, you fools would pay me not to sing."

The 4y-Guy made an appearance in the Neurotically Yours comic series. Germaine went to 4y-Records to buy some new music, and he told her that "he will make no physical contact today, she should leave her money by the door, and get the hell out."

He also made a cameo in Dukkha in the background of a club commenting that the music on a record he was holding "sucks monkey."

In the Neurotically Yours animated series, Foamy was once seen in a music store similar to the one in 4-Y, and has mentioned he likes shopping there.
