The Bob and Larry Movie is a cancelled 2005 theatrical film.


Before the release of their feature film, Jonah: a VeggieTales Movie, Big Idea 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 Big Idea 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.

After the success of Jonah - A VeggieTales Movie, Phil Vischer (The voice of Bob the Tomato, Archibald Asparagus. Mr. Lunt, Pa Grape, Jimmy Gourd, etc.) wrote this. However, it turned out that they didn't have the budget to get it made because Big Idea went bankrupt in mid-2003 and was relocated in Tennessee, now owned by Classic Media (now DreamWorks Classics). Because this was not cancelled, The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything: a VeggieTales Movie was written, but the movie itself did not come out, however, until July 2007.

The movie's plot was said to be about how Bob and Larry met and got their own show, and it would have should humans which is another reason the film never came to be because they were too complicated. Also on the Jonah - A VeggieTales Movie bonus features (especially the studio tour feature) you can see some concept art and even the full color script which is the closest thing currently of anything finished of the movie.
