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 on the same website.
UPDATE: The pilot was shown at a conference called SIGGRAPH '95, and a rare cd-rom apparently exists containing the content shown at the conference. If you find the cd, you may have found the pilot. Information about SIGGRAPH here: http://www.siggraph.org/s95/
