Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius (partially found movie promotional TV shorts; 2001–2002)
|A picture of the "puppet" interruption.|
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 SquarePants cast hair in the style of Jimmy's, and another one that is confirmed to exist had a SpongeBob 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 was said to be taken from the Season 1 episode, "Hooky", until that episodes puppet interruption was found, leaving the episode the image was from unknown.
March 7, 2016 – 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. 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 Kids Choice Awards 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

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.
January 11, 2017 - More interruptions have been claimed to exist. First, there was one on the Rugrats episode "Reptar 2010" where he, like similar interruptions mentioned above, replaced about a minute of the episode with Rocket Power (coincidentally, Rugrats and the two shows that he briefly replaced portions of certain episodes with, Rocket Power and The Wild Thornberries, were all Klasky-Cuspo productions). Another that now has been claimed to exist was in the SpongeBob episode "SB-129" where he gave Squidward Carl's hairstyle and glasses and even went as to far as to give Squidward Carl's voice. Yet another claimed to exist was one during an episode of As Told By Ginger where the colors were briefly inverted much like the "Culture Shock" interruption above. Finally, a video of yet another SpongeBob interruption was posted by the Youtube account Final Atomic Buster and has been added to the video gallery below.
March 20, 2017 - Another interruption was discovered, courtesy of YouTube user The Tide and Seeker (Tide on the Wiki), on the SpongeBob episode "Ripped Pants". In it, Jimmy and Goodard fly in on a rocket during the surfing competition. They first rewind the episode to the point where SpongBob and Sandy Cheeks are buying ice cream, but it is in slow motion. The episode is then fast forwarded to the point where SpongeBob rips his pants through a box. Finally, the episode is fast forwarded to the lifeguard picking up SpongeBob's (thought to be) dead body, which would have occurred right after where the interruption began, skipping the part of the lifeguard running to SpongeBob.
July 28, 2017 - At long last, the alleged "puppet show" interruption of "Hooky" has been found by YouTube user Win90'sNickelodeon96!
