Johnny Quasar is a precursor for Jimmy Neutron. Made in 1995, creator John A. Davis brainstormed the character Jimmy Neutron (then named Johnny Quasar) sometime in the 80's. He wrote the pilot under "Runaway Rocketboy" (later became the name of the 2nd pilot).

He revisited the idea in the 90's while moving out of his home. He then pitched the idea to SIGGRAPH (a computer graphic conference, now called SIGGRAPH 2015). At SIGGRAPH, he met Steve Odekerk.

The only known footage of this pilot to this day is a short clip where Johnny Quasar introduces himself and Goddard on DNA Productions' (the creators of Jimmy Neutron) website. 3 screenshots of the pilot were found in the same website.

You guys remember that old Nick show Jimmy Neutron, right? The funny cartoon about a smart kid who does crazy stuff with his friends and family that spinned-off into that crappy Planet Sheen show? Well, back in the late 80’s to early 90’s, before it was a show called Jimmy Neutron, it was just a pilot and concepts codenamed “Johnny Quasar.” The concept was the same, smart kid and crazy adventures, but not much is really known about the original Johnny Quasar. Search it up online and the most you’ll find is some concept art, a few screenshots and even a 9-second clip of the original pilot.

Well, if you were a kid like me, then you’d remember the whole pilot. Back in 1994, when I was 6 years old, my dad took me to go to some conference called SIGGRAPH, but since I couldn’t go to the conference itself, I was sent with the other children to another location. This place was where some of the CG animations would be viewed to entertain kids while their parents went off to check out other exhibits. While I was there, us kids saw a lot of stuff, but what would happen soon would put a stop to bringing children to SIGGRAPH.

The next animation would be of “Johnny Quasar”, and since this animation actually seemed like a cartoon a kid would watch, everyone was excited. The pilot started up just like the 9-second clip you see now-a-days, with Johnny introducing himself and his dog Goddard. As it continued, Johnny’s ship was being shot at by some aliens, you know, the kind of stuff that’d be shown off later in Jimmy Neutron. The thing Johnny did was pull out a stick and throw it towards the UFO’s, telling Goddard to fetch and then play dead. When Goddard caught the stick, which was on one of the UFO’s, he exploded and the screen cut to a white for a good 2 minutes. Well I found that on 4chan by an anonymous user you can find it from here I think https://yuki.la/x/17734645 I hope that might of helped.

I saw the whole post, and it seems to me to be more of a creepypasta than a true story. It has all the same characteristics that you would see on a creepypasta about a "Lost" episode of a children's show, like the screen cutting to white/black for a while The only thing that I found accurate was the part about the monkey named Paul would, that part of the credits would always freak me out after watching Jimmy Neutron.

I think you guys haven't noticed that, but Johnny Quasar's Dad appears at the Runaway Rocketboy episode, which was the pilot episode of The Advemtures of Jimmy Neutron.
