Greeny Phatom: The Movie is a 2002 American animated comedy film based on the animated television series of the same name created by Robert Stainton. The film was directed by Stainton and was produced by GreenyWorld Studios, and Sony Wonder in association with Sesame Workshop and CINAR for 20th Century Fox. In this film, Dr. Beanson takes a toy he wants from Toys "R" Us without paying for it. Little Guy and Little Guy 2 try to take the toy away from him so he can get prosecuted, while Dr. Beanson tries to stop them and restore his reputation, but when Gree Guy and Santed Sailor plan to take over 123 Greeny Phatom, Little Guy, Little Guy 2, and Dr. Beason must stop both of them before the invasion begins. It was the first Fox film in a while (after Titan A.E.) to be traditionally animated.
The film was released in theaters on July 21, 2002 and on home video on October 15, 2002. It received generally positive reviews from critics, who praised the humorous plot and animation, and grossed $729 million worldwide in theaters against a $21 million budget, making it a critical and financial box office success. A sequel titled Greeny Phatom The Movie 2 was released on August 23, 2016.

Greeny Phatom The Movie was originally being titled in pre-production as Chalkzone meets Greeny Phatom. The script was written by Gree G. (before he began copying Greeny Phatom in Gree City), Millard Fillmore and Keegan Salisbury. With 20th Century Fox's acquisition of the GP franchise in early 1999, the rights for the film reverted to Fox and Sony Wonder. Following this was an eventually unreleased prototype of the movie, distributed by Warner Bros. internationally and directed by Tim Burton with creator Robert W. Stainton writing the script. Due to creative differences between Warner Bros., Fox, and Burton (again), Stainton took over director, and the plot was redone using the plot for a scrapped episode that year, Dr. Beanson and The Toy. Burton was later fired and the original, slated for a 2000 release, was later found as an easter egg on the 2003 IMAX DVD (later versions did not have it). Paramount and Universal soon held international rights via their United International Pictures service.
It jumped back and forth between development hell and actual production from 1997 to 1999.
The film was originally stated as a November 2, 2001 release, but it was pushed back to July 21, 2002 to avoid competition with Monsters, Inc.
An original storyline for the film can be read here.
Plot for Chalkzone meets Greeny Phatom
So Snap is in a classroom and saying, "Hmm... I'm bored, lets go draw a Chalkzone so that I can go to the City of 123 Greeny Phatom!" and so, he did. He jumped in the chalkzone while saying "Oh yeah, legendary freedom!!" and then, he teleports into the City of 123 Greeny Phatom and then he says "WHOA! I got here in like, 45 seconds!" and then Dr. Beanson says "Hi!" to Snap and "Welcome to 123 Greeny Phatom! Try the new Bananas in Pyjamas bananas!!", he adds.
This is all they had gotten, because of the events above.
