"Runaway Rocketboy!" is the pilot episode of Jimmy Neutron.


Jimmy runs away from home after his parents ground him for launching Carl off the roof and for acting spoiled, but soon has second thoughts when he is kidnapped by King Goobot V, who plots to enslave the planet.


  • Footage from this episode was used in the first trailer for the movie.
  • A photo of Jimmy in his pilot outfit can be seen a few times in the show.
  • This was supposed to start the show, but Nick decided to make it a movie instead, due to the trend of CGI and the show was made after the movie.
  • Many elements from the pilot were recycled for the movie including Jimmy and Hugh's conversation and the Yolkians.
  • This is the only time Jimmy doesn't wear his trademark atom shirt.
  • S. Scott Bullock and Paul Greenberg, who voiced Goobot and Ooblar in this episode, would later reprise their roles for the show and Jimmy Neutron's Nicktoon Blast.
