Friday Night Nicktoons was a Friday night block that aired on Nickelodeon from the summer of 2002 to mid 2004; its original time slot was 8-10 p.m. Eastern time, expanded to start at 7 p.m. toward the end of its run. It generally aired only from July through May, but became Prime Time Nicktoons for the summer of 2004. The block was possibly made to compete with Cartoon Network's Cartoon Cartoon Fridays block.

While many of these bumpers are available on the Internet, however all the LOST bumpers (with a better quality and the FULL versions of the block's bumpers) have yet to be found, along with the block's schedules and promos. Including the lost bumpers such as the giant sentient binoculars zapping thru the screen, a 2003 intro featuring Jenny in the place of Zim, the late-2004 bumpers took place inside a vacant spaceship based on the bumpers of the Nicktoons channel from 2003-2005, a flying blimp with Goddard, and more.
