Inside-Out Boy is a claymation character that appeared in five Nickelodeon shorts between commercials in its original run from 1989 to 1993.Those shorts later reaired on Noggin in 1999. The character was created by Scott Webb and Will McRobb.
The first short tells the story on how I.O.B. became who he is. He is playing with his Yo-Yo then goes on a swing, then after swinging too high, he swung over the bar and his body flipped inside out. Making him "Inside-Out Boy". To kids, he is a superhero, with his inner body parts exposed, it grosses out adults making them jump away and scream in the process.
The shorts have him in situations like having to help his friend at the Science Fair, Impressing a Girl, having a rap battle with "MC Mallet", and other situations.
