Check out the Lost Media Wiki’s article on the Jimmy Neutron movie’s promotional interruptions!!!

To promote Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius (the movie, not the TV show), a week called "Jimmy Neutron Takes Over Nick" on Nickelodeon started, where they would interrupt several of their shows by switching out the audio or changing it to something entirely else. Many interruptions are found, which are displayed below.


  • Jimmy flipped through many Nickelodeon shows, two in particular being a Hey Arnold! episode "Weighing Harold", and a SpongeBob episode "Culture Shock". After which, Jimmy transformed into Carl.
  • During live action shows, Jimmy would flip the frame upside down.
  • Sometimes, Jimmy plays fetch with Goddard with a Nick logo or blows the screen bug up or replaces the screenbug with a screenbug shaped like his head or appears inside the screenbug.
