Status: Existence Unconfirmed
Bobby's Girl is an unfinished animated film produced by Ralph Bakshi and John Kricfalusi. Bakshi saw the potential in Kricfalusi and decided to work on a project with him. The film was to be a parody of 80's teen films like 16 Candles and The Breakfast Club.
After management of Tri-Star films changed and the interests of the company shifted, the film was reworked into Suzy's in Love, a prime-time teen series that attracted little attention.
It is unknown if any actual animation, or even just an animatic or pencil test, has ever been made and preserved.
