Hershey's Really Big! 3D Show is a 3D animated short film that was presented at Hershey's Chocolate World visitor center between 2002 and 2013.[1] The film was created by Threshold Digital Research Labs, a branch of Threshold Entertainment who would later go on to create Foodfight! Much of the same crew that worked on Hershey would also work on Foodfight! during its early stages as a keyframe-animated film.


Running 12 minutes in length, the film is presented by a real-life host playing the character Professor D.P. Quigley, beginning with a stereotypically boring presentation on the history of chocolate. After being interrupted by Johnny Proctor, a 3D animated cartoon character, Proctor takes the show in a new direction with show tunes, gags, and kitsch 3D effects. After tasting a Hershey's Kiss, he discovers chocolate doesn't need show tunes to be advertised, because it's already amazing.


Due to being a film presented exclusively at Hershey's Chocolate World in person, it was never given any sort of home release. After it was replaced by Hershey's Great Chocolate Factory Mystery in 4D in 2013, which was then replaced with Hershey's Great Candy Expedition in 2022.[2]

A camera recording surfaced on YouTube in 2015 uploaded by A660 56, however, due to it being a 3D film and recorded from a screen, it is of very low quality, cropped, and hardly representative of the film's content.[3]

In 2024, a full HD copy with pre-recorded lines from the host was provided by a crew member to user Ziggy Cashmere. The monoscopic and stereoscopic versions were uploaded to the Internet Archive that same day.
