Status: Partially Found

Robot and Monster is a short-lived Nicktoon, created by Dave Pressler, Joshua Sternin, and J. R. Ventimilia that premiered on August 4, 2012.[1][2] The show was quickly taken off Nick's schedule in January 2013, leaving 4 episodes unaired.

One of the four unaired episodes (Dirty Money and What J.D. Wants) aired on Nicktoons on December 26, 2013, while the series-finale (Monster Hit) aired on July 19, 2014, thus ending the series, though the other two still remain elusive. However, a Complete Series DVD has been released on November 11, 2012, including the two unaired episodes. (Though it is still unknown if these episodes will ever be broadcast on TV)

Scrapped Season 2

During the production of the show, Nick felt confident about giving the series a Second Season, containing about 14 episodes. But Nick decided to cancel production of Season 2 and later completely abandoned the show. Only 2 episodes from season 2 are known to exist

Blimp Pirates

Status: Partially Found

This episode was first revealed on February 12, 2014, when someone asked Dave about the absence of Robot's Father.

In the would have been half-hour Season Premiere, we discover why Robot's Father, Bricklin, was absent during the series. After founding the Blinking Light Factory, he was somehow captured by Blimp Pirates, who are none other than pirates who used Blimps instead of Pirate Ships. Robot later attempts to reunite with his Father.

Aside from this very little is known about this episode and how far production got on this episode is unknown.

An incomplete storyboard can be found on the website of Josh Zinman who did storyboard art for Robot and Monster.[3]

Best in Marf

Status: Found

Robot and Monster try to get Marf to be purebred, in order to compete in The Prince of Scamtown's purebred pet competition.

The animatic for the episode complete with voice acting was leaked online revealing its existence. It is unlikely the episode got any farther into production due to how early the season was cancelled.

The Dark Night (Pilot Version)

Status: Lost

The original pilot of Robot and Monster is an early version of "The Dark Night". The only differences between the Pilot and the TV Version, is that it's 16-Minutes Long, Lil' Lugnuts doesn't appear, and Robot's line, "Did I catch the Howling Cybermonkey that escaped from the zoo?", is replaced with "Do I hear a Howling Cybermonkey?". The final TV version still kept the same story elements. This was confirmed by the Show's creator, Dave Pressler.

The pilot was never released to the public, but an extra logo and a picture (possibly during development for the pilot) still exists.

Unaired Intro

Status: Found

Before the show premiered in mid-2012, the intro was originally going to have a different song, similar to a musical number, with a montage of shots. This was confirmed by the show's creator, Dave Pressler, via e-mail.

On September 12, 2020, Dave Pressler had a live stream on Instagram about the history of the show. In this live stream he played the unaired intro, though the video suffers from low quality and some freeze frames.

On January 30th, 2024, YouTuber NauticalSponge found the unaired intro and two earlier variations of the intro in low quality via. proxies connected to Nickelodeon. The earlier variations of the intro have several differences, as well as being unfinished and not fully rendered, but use the same theme and beginning shots.

The intro in instrumental form can be found in the credits for the first 2 episodes, although incomplete.[4]
