"JIMMY NEUTRON: BOY GENIUS" FOR GAMECUBE UNVEILED.

THQ Inc. (NASDAQ: THQI) and Nickelodeon have launched "Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius(TM)" for Nintendo(R) GameCube(TM). The videogame is based on Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon Movies' highly successful, digitally animated motion picture, "Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius." Jimmy Neutron also stars in a top-rated television series, "The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius," on Nickelodeon.

"Nickelodeon is simply the best in the business at creating original kids' franchises with real longevity," said Germaine Gioia, vice president, Licensing, THQ. "`Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius' for GameCube' further demonstrates THQ's strength in bringing these successful TV and movie brands into the interactive space."

From box office gross to consumer products sales to television ratings and Web hits, we see that kids can't get enough Jimmy," said Steve Youngwood, vice president, Nickelodeon Media Products Group. "We are pleased to be working with THQ to bring this popular franchise to owners of the GameCube system this holiday season."

In "Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius" for GameCube, players maneuver Jimmy and his robot dog Goddard through multiple levels, including Retroland Amusement Park, Jimmy's house, an asteroid surface and Planet Yolkus in their quest to save the world and rescue the parents of Retroville from the evil Yokians. Tons of techno gadgets, such as an inflatoray and a shrink ray, are at his disposal. Players can interact with Goddard as he transforms into a scooter, a pogo stick and a sled to help Jimmy succeed on his missions.

"Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius" is also currently available for the PlayStation(R) 2 computer entertainment system. "Jimmy Neutron vs. Jimmy Negatron" is available for PC and the Game Boy(R) Advance.
