Greeny Phatom The Movie (originally known in development as Chalkzone meets Greeny Phatom) is a 2002 American-Canadian animated comedy film based on the animated television series, Greeny Phatom, created by Robert W. Stainton. The film was directed by Robert W. Stainton. It was produced by 20th Century Fox, GreenyWorld Studios, and Sony Wonder in association with Sesame Workshop and CINAR (later known as Cookie Jar, now DHX Media). The film was distributed by 20th Century Fox for the US, and Paramount Pictures and Universal Studios for the rest of the world under United International Pictures. It was the first Fox film in a while (after Titan A.E.) to be traditionally animated.
The film centers around how 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.
The film was released in theaters on July 21, 2002, and on home video on October 15, 2002. The film received generally positive reviews from critics, who appreciated the humorous plot, and went on to gross $729 million worldwide in theaters while produced on a $75 million budget, making it a critical and financial success. A sequel, titled Greeny Phatom The Movie 2, was released on August 23, 2013.

ProductionGreeny 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 as 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 an October 14, 2000 release but was later pushed to November 2, 2001, 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, let's 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.

The DVD was released on October 15, 2002, in separate widescreen and fullscreen two-disc editions. In 2005, 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment released a special THX edition with DTS sound, a look at the next Greeny Toon, World Of Jake, 10 Greeny Phatom episodes (1 from each of the 10 seasons), playable games, a demo of Greeny Phatom The Video Game on Xbox and PS2, galleries, and an extended cut of the film, also with 2 discs. It was also released on Blu-ray + DVD combo pack on October 8, 2011, containing an all-new short Little Guy and The Mystery to New York (before its official release as one of the first Little Guy Mystery Movies) and a DTS version of Geo Guy Gets Nuts.A VHS release was also released on October 15, 2002.
There exists a demo VHS release. Only one copy was ever created, and Will M has it.
The widescreen edition was part of the Windows XP Greeny Phatom Edition during the Christmas season of 2002.
It was re-released in 2006 on DVD and VHS by Media Blasters' Kitty Media division, which usually specializes in adult anime and pornographic films (there's a reason the 2006 copies were normally found in the Anime sections of video stores). Media Blasters picked the movie up on the cheap because 20th Century Fox and Sony Wonder were trying very hard to wash their hands of the franchise, and likely used the Kitty Media brand to disown the movie. The VHS copies came packaged with the Greeny Phatom Sampler VHS.
In 2015, the movie was re-released as part of the 20th Greeny Years DVD pack.
On April 4, 2003, Greeny Phatom The Movie was eventually given an IMAX release. This release adds a new intro scene with Little Guy, and three deleted scenes were reinstated and eventually animated by the people from the GreenyWorld Studios' Chicago unit.
A 3D re-release for the film was released in theaters on June 16, 2013.
The Blu-ray version for the film was released on July 22, 2014.
4K Ultra HD Blu-ray release
Before the release of Greeny Phatom The Movie 3, the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray version of the film (along with the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray version of Greeny Phatom The Movie 2) was released on July 24, 2017.
A release party for the film occurred on July 22, 2002, at the Midway Armory in Chicago, a facility of the Illinois National Guard. The party was telecast on Fox stations nationwide, pre-empting the usual Monday night lineup. The party featured performances by Eddy Grant, Devo, Kraftwerk, the Hollywood Studio Orchestra, The B-52's, the Insane Clown Posse, AxCx, and Mark Kalfa.
The party spawned lip-syncing rumors, such as when AxCx began performing "Stayin' Alive", Seth Putnam stopped lip syncing upon the track skipping and then exited the stage in a dash.
