In Fall 2001, Nickelodeon ran a series of promotional "interruptions" where the titular character from the then-upcoming film Jimmy Neutron, Boy Genius would appear in the middle of programs and alter the broadcast in some way. Although the interruptions were intended to run leading up to the film's release, they later made a brief return for April Fool's Day 2002, and at least one appearance the following month, as well as on June 29, 2002.

This is an attempt to create a chronological rundown of every known interruption and when they occurred.
