Status Partially Found

When the Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius movie was being released around 2001–02, Nickelodeon interrupted some of their shows with humorous shorts to promote the movie.

One such gag (supposedly) had the audio track on a Rugrats episode changed, another one giving the SpongeBob cast hair in the style of Jimmy's, and another one that is confirmed to exist had a SpongeBob SquarePants episode being made with puppets.

At the moment, no footage exists, due to it having been aired at random times. Only one (low quality) picture of the SpongeBob "puppet show" gag currently exists, and is said to be taken from the Season 1 episode, "Hooky".

Update Log

March 7, 2016 – A slew of comments happened! First of all, wiki member CDCB2 has an interruption during the SpongeBob episode "Employee of the Month" that displays Jimmy and Goddard playing fetch with the Nick "network bug". CDCB2 says he'll upload it once he finds the disc.

Next, a lot of sightings have been claimed. An anonymous person claims that during the Rugrats episode "Music", he gave the Rugrats cast his hairstyle much like the SpongeBob one above. Another anonymous person claims that during the Hey Arnold! episode "Helga Sleepwalks", Jimmy replayed a scene of Helga eating pork rinds a few times. Yet another anonymous person claims "Squeaky Boots" getting the "puppet show" treatment, and yet another anonymous person claims that SpongeBob episode "Culture Shock" received not one, but two interruptions. The first one was where Squidward talks to the group behind the curtains. The anonymous user says that supposedly, he was given Jimmy's hairstyle. The second one was that the colors supposedly inverted for a few seconds. The same anonymous user claims that during another episode, a part of the episode repeated a few times, much like the "Helga Sleepwalks" situation above.

April 27, 2016 – One interruption (taken from the KCAs after Jimmy Neutron won) has been found on an old VHS, though it is not in the format as the ones Before the Movies release it is still an interruption. Though it is mostly a clip show of the movie.

April 29 2016 – A Vimeo video was found which included one of the shorts.

July 4th, 2016 – Someone found a screen bug of Goddard pulling out a sign that says "Coming In 30 Minutes" In one of their old SpongeBob recordings, it is low quality but it is still good

July 22nd, 2016 -User @Nodog found a Screen bug for the Episode "When Pants Attack" In a Spongebob VHS.

September 16, 2016 - An anonymous user has claimed to have seen an interruption during an episode of Rocket Power where he replaced a brief portion of the episode with an old cooking show.

September 20, 2016 - Lost Media Wiki contributor Penti claims to have seen an interruption during a Rugrats episode where he briefly replaced about a minute of the episode with an episode of The Wild Thornberries much like the Rocket Power interruption above.

November 2, 2016 - Another anonymous user claims to have seen an interruption during the Doug episode "Doug Can't Dance" where he repeated a scene where Doug hurts his foot similar to the "Helga Sleepwalks" interruption. He also claims that there was also an interruption in an episode of Pelswick where he replaced a portion of the episode with a game show similar to the Rugrats interruption Penti claims to have seen and the Rocket Power interruption above.

November 11, 2016 - Yet another anonymous user claims to have seen an episode of Pinky and the Brain receiving the "puppet show" treatment as well, and he also claims to have seen an interruption during an episode of The Wild Thornberries where he replaced at least part of the episode's audio track with sounds of cows mooing.

I remember one in the Rugrats episode "Music" that I watched back in 2001 where Jimmy Neutron uses his remote to make the Rugrats the same hairstyle he has!

CDCB2 here--too lazy to log in right now. I have an interruption with Jimmy and Goddard playing fetch with the Nick logo during an airing of the SpongeBob episode "Employee of the Month." It's on a disc somewhere so I'll have to dig it up. I'll gladly post it once I find it.

The spongebob episode was from what I remember the one with the squeeky boots. The scene used was the part where mr krabs offers the boots to spongebob. I also remember the hooky episode receiving the same treatment with the part where mr krabs sat on a hook giving the oath.

I remember the Spongebob episode "Culture Shock" had one. that was my only memory of it. If I remember right, the scene where Squidward talks to the group behind the curtains, one of the effects happened. I THINK what happened was he was given Jimmy's hair. Some other effects I remember were a few seconds of the episode going negative colors, and a few seconds of an episode repeating itself. Don't quote me on any of this, as they could've been distorted by memory. I was 5 at the time these aired.

Hello, this is anonymous user #7 from last time. I apologize for not saying this sooner, but I would like to clear something up: I am fairly sure that there was only one effect per-episode, and the negative colors were probably from a different episode. but the Jimmy's hair thing being on Squidward in Culture Shock is something i'm absolutely sure of. Hope this helps.

I remember a few of these.

During a Wild Thornberries bumper, the family would usually be seen driving away from a wild rhino, with Donny holding onto its tail. In this case, the rhino was replaced by Jimmy flying his rocket.

I uploaded another version of the "When Pants Attack" one just in case something happens to it (and there's no audio, so less chance of copyright problems?)

I recall seeing one during an episode of Rugrats, in which Jimmy changed it over to a different show for about a minute (I'm almost certain he changed it to The Wild Thornberries), before going back to the previous show.

You know what would be interesting to see? If the Peanuts specials Nickelodeon had the rights to air until 2004 and "The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show" were still on Nickelodeon at the time, would they have possibly received at least one of these interruption types too?

(If you mention A Charlie Brown Christmas/It's The Great Pumpkin/A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving in your comment, that would be impossible because ABC would have had just started airing those three at the time these interruptions would have been airing)

He's probably saying for no reason. I don't believe Nickelodeon aired anything Peanuts on the network (with the exception of The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show on Nicktoons).

Calm Down, Claims About During The Rugrats Episode "Reptar 2010", He Changed Into A Different Show About A Minute (He Replaced With Rocket Power). And Also During The Spongebob Squarepants Episode "SB-129", Jimmy Accidentally Gives Carl's Hair and Glasses to Sqwidward, and Replaced Sqwidward's Voice With Carl's Voice.
