Bobby the Lizard Boy is a short from 2002, created for Nickelodeon by Shaun Bakken Reimers. The short also aired in 2003 on the Nicktoons Network.
When Bobby's parents (a human father, and an iguana mother) go out of town, they leave him with the "meanest babysitter ever," Laura. Bobby tries to foil her plans, changing colors like a chameleon and dumping his arm, regrowing it like a lizard. However, he ends up running to hide in a closet. Laura enters the closet in an attempt to capture him, but she ends up getting swallowed by Bobby like a snake. The parents come home, and dad retrieves Laura from within Bobby. The dad tries to pay her for what she endured, but she ends up running out of the house and into her car.
Before April 1, 2015, only 2 pictures and 1 clip of the short had surfaced. The clip is available here. Also before the 2015 discovery of the entire short, a contributor found a link that leads to the short on Nick.com. The short's description was added to the site in 2002, along with an option to watch the short. However, the short can no longer be viewed, and no other version of this short had been recovered. Regardless, the aforementioned description is available here, and the video page (no longer working), is available here.
On April 1, 2015, a Lost Media Wiki contributor discovered the entire Nicktoons Network version of the short, located in an unlisted Youtube video from November 25, 2013, uploaded by CDCB2. The entire short is available here.
