Innie & Outie is a short film that is listed on the Nickelodeon Creative Lab Comp Reel. It may have appeared as one of the Nickelodeon's Short Films by Short People series; a program that showcased short films made by kids. It was created in and aired in 1996 and may have been shown for a few years after that date, likely during the space between the Nick Jr. and the Nickelodeon programming block.

Its description is listed on the tape as a story "about two friends whose faces form a belly button, as they go to a movie for the afternoon." The short featured human actors with faces drawn on their chests, likely in sharpie, with the human actors moving their stomachs to simulate speech and other actions like drinking soda from a straw. The main characters were archetypal 1990s teenagers, and the film was set in a city.

The Paley Center for Media [1] in California, were confirmed as having a copy of Nick's Creative Lab Comp Reel (containing Innie & Outie), and a screening was organised to take place on February 17, but like that day's screening of the First Ever Short Films By Short People Festival, it went rather unsuccessfully. Its listing on their website is one of the only sources proving its existence, outside of a resumé for Howard Hoffman [2] and a plethora of Yahoo Answers threads inquiring about the video.

Howie Hoffman works at my school and I work directly with him often. He's brought this short up numerous times, and I think he said there's more than one. He has a lot of stuff that's probably considered "lost".
