The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron Boy Genius: Attack of the Twonkies is a video game released in 2004, based on the American television animated series The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius. In the game, the player controls Neutron in a quest to save Earth from the alien "Twonkies" using gadgets and inventions.

Although made after the Jimmy Neutron episode, "Attack of the Twonkies!", levels are designed with the same mechanics as the pilot movie, with Cindy having pigtails instead of a ponytail, the rocket, and the theme park "Retroland".

An Xbox version was announced, but ultimately cancelled.[citation needed]
