|The Angry Beavers Pilot "SnowBound" and "Cuffed Together"|
The pilot episodes, "Snowbound" and "Cuffed Together", were created in 1994. Mitchell Whitfield voiced Norbert in the pilots (in the actual series, Norbert is voiced by Nick Bakay). Additionally, Daggett's voice is more similar to Zim's in Invader Zim, whom Richard also voiced and his ears are a little short. Norbert looks very similar to Daggett and his voice is different, and less distinguished than his final character design. Several other differences from the final product of the series can be distinguished.
"Cuffed Together", involves Norbert and Daggett being arrested after Daggett eats an expensive wooden statue. Eventually, the beavers manage to escape, but are handcuffed together.
Several people from Latin America claim to have seen both the pilots air on the Latin equivalent of the American "Nicktoons Network".
On February 24, 2013, a bootleg copy of "Snowbound" appeared on YouTube, courtesy of Greg Bruhl, who found it included as an extra in a bootleg DVD collection he bought. Almost one year later, on February 8, 2014, a DVD-rip of "Snowbound" surfaced on YouTube, courtesy of Eddy's Uploads. Upon closer inspection, the DVD appears to have been originally sourced from a VHS tape. At the very end of the video, a copyright notice "©1994 Nickelodeon" can be seen.
On April 3, 2015, Mega.co.nz mirrors of "Snowbound" were made available on the page after first appearing in a comment dated June 16, 2014, four months after both YouTube copies of "Snowbound" have been deleted.
On November 5th, 2015, YouTuber "Animagamers Productions" uploaded "Snowbound" in high quality. As of July 9th, 2016 it was unavailable.
