In summer 2013 a half a ton batch of paper towels was shipped to Novorossiysk, unloaded and placed under a customs control. At the end of the August the consignee decided to move the goods for temporary customs storage and found that all the towels bear a printed image of the famous cartoon hero. Soon he also became aware that no consent from Nickelodeon for use of the image was ever granted to the manufacturer.

The towels underwent a customs extermination procedure and on September 26 were disposed of by burying them into a local landfill.
