Fairly OddParents crossover episodes[edit]

There have also been three tie-ins with special episode crossovers involving the Nickelodeon hand-drawn style series The Fairly OddParents under the title "The Jimmy-Timmy Power Hour" (the first alone, the second and third with the subtitles "When Nerds Collide!" and "The Jerkinators!," respectively); the five main characters from Jimmy Neutron meet with Timmy, his godparents, and his two best friends Chester, and AJ, and often cross between each of their worlds of 2D and 3D animation.

Pilot (1998–2001)[edit]

The pilot, named "Runaway Rocketboy," involves Jimmy testing a rocket ship that he has invented, and later uses it when he inadvertently stumbles upon a Yolkian plot to conquer Earth. The pilot was aired in short mini episodes on Nickelodeon before the film's release, and its plot was used for the film Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius. The pilot was later included as an extra on the "Confusion Fusion" DVD. It was originally supposed to air as a short on KaBlam!, but the show got cancelled before the episode aired.

The pilot had a few differences from the main series. Most notably, the clothes were different, the theme song was longer with a few lines that were cut later, Goddard was voiced by Kim Saxon, in lieu of Frank Welker, Carl Wheezer resembled his father, Sheen Estevez was absent and the title card had a picture in the scene, like all the other Nicktoons at the time. Also, the DNA Productions mascot was an animated cat.

Main article: Planet Sheen

A second spin-off series, Planet Sheen, focused on Sheen Estevez, who accidentally landed on the planet Zeenu in Planet Sheen's pilot episode. 26 episodes were produced by O Entertainment.[19] The show debuted on October 2, 2010, along with T.U.F.F. Puppy. As of 2013, the spin-off has been cancelled, with the final episode having aired on February 15, 2013.


The theme song was originally written by Brian Causey for the pilot episode. Pop-punk band Bowling for Soup later revamped and extended Causey's theme for the film version theme. Ultimately the original theme was kept for the TV series intro and outro.
