Biggs' Adventure was a matinee event for Kidtoon Films movies that were shown at Regal theaters. The movies that were a part of it were Candy Land: The Great Lollipop Adventure, Little Nemo: Adventures in Slumberland, and The Golden Blaze.

History

Judging by people on various forums regarding trailers that ran before theatrical showings of The Incredibles,[1][2][3] it is possible that Biggs' Adventure was originally commissioned as a feature film of some sort, although this has yet to be confirmed, and this may have simply been the result of confusion as to what Biggs' Adventure actually was on the part of viewers.

The trailers in question were known to include one depicting the camera trailing up a tall tree before stopping at three kids calling out to Biggs, before cutting to Biggs' eye. Another was known to consist of a field mouse running around a grainy terrain, slowly losing its balance over a bunch of earthquakes caused by pounding sounds, with every instance, the ground shakes more frequently and with more impact. The mouse suddenly loses most of its balance and tumbles over a few times, then the camera pans out and shows that the terrain the field mouse is on is actually the logo for Biggs' Adventure. A NeoGAF post for The Incredibles mentions, in additional to the two aforementioned trailers, an additional two, one of which gives small bios of each of the three characters, the second of which is referred to as a "genius mechanic", and the third the first character's "stupid brother", and another depicting the three kids in a theater, talking about how they want to watch the movie, in which two begin to argue while the middle one pleads for silence.

While the above trailers have yet to be found, previews for the three movies that were shown as part of the event beginning with a bumper consisting of the logo for Biggs' Adventure, with a voiceover saying "Biggs' Adventure is the place to be for weekend matinees" have been found. Additionally, the website for Biggs' Adventure has been archived, though its images aren't. There is, however, a screenshot for what the website would have looked like, depicting Biggs himself, found as part of the trademark listing for Biggs' Adventure.
