The Bob & Larry Movie (lost production material of cancelled film adaptation; 2005)
Before the release of their feature film, Jonah: a VeggieTales Movie, BigIdea made plans to make another feature film called The Bob & Larry Movie. The movie was planned for a 2005 theatrical release, however, it was soon scrapped due to BigIdea going bankrupt in mid-2003, and the fact that it had human characters (which were too complicated to animate at the time). The Bob & Larry Movie was later replaced by The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything: a VeggieTales Movie, which was released in January 2008. The Bob & Larry Movie would’ve been distributed by Artisan, the distributor of Jonah. According to BigIdea founder, Phil Vischer, they had about 10 people working on the movie before cancelling it.
All that’s known about the plot is that it’s about how Bob the Tomato and Larry the Cucumber met, and how they started VeggieTales together. It would also feature human characters.
No video footage of the movie has been released, the only proof being concept art and a color script. Phil Vischer has stated that he still has the full script for the movie, but has no plans on releasing it to the public.
