Also during this promotion, moviegoers could experience the smells of the film, with a special process called "Odorama", not unlike the efforts attempted by B-Movie hucksters in the 1950s and 60's, and more recently, John Waters in the early 1980s. This stunt was to tie in with a scene where Spike loses his sense of smell, and counts on the audience to help him complete his mission. Special numbered cards, each representing a different smell (smelly feet, strawberries, peanut butter, a floer, a root-beer float, and fish) were given away with Kids meals at participating Burger King Restaurants from June 2 to June 29, 2003, and separately at Blockbuster Video rental stores on June 15, 2003. Participants could pick up the cards, then take them to a local movie theater showing the film. When a particular number flashed onscreen, vierwers could scratch off the scent with the particular number on it. Numbers that flashes in read meant the viewer should find the corresponding number on their card (glowing in the dark for their convenience), and be ready to scratch and sniff when the onscreen number turns green.

- In August 1999, according to a Viacom press release, there was to have been a Reptar-themed promotion at Burger King, to tie in with the direct-to-video release of Runaway Reptar. Nick declined this promotion, opting for a generic back-to-school-themed promotion instead.
