The film centers around how Dr. Beanson takes the 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 re-released on February 18, 2005, and on home video on October 15, 2002. The film went on to gross $28 million worldwide in theaters, making it a box office hit while produced on a modest $21 million budget. The film was released to generally positive reviews from critics, who appreciated the humor, social satire, and political commentary. A sequel, Greeny Phatom The Movie 2, released on August 23, 2013. This lead to a series.
The plot is based on the cancelled episode Dr. Beanson and the Toy. It starts with Dr. Beanson entering Toys R Us, followed by Little Guy and Dr., who catch him trying to steal a toy.
Little Guy and Dr. chase Dr. Beanson out of the store, until Dr. Beanson unexpectedly runs into Gree Guy. Gree Guy confiscates the toy, and gives it to Little Guy. (Note: Little Guy takes the toy without paying for it, so he shoplifts as well).
Dr. Beanson is immediately sentenced to three-day jail terms. He is later set free. He takes the toy again, convinced that he has achieved victory. Dr. Mother, however, throws the toy out the window (because she believes that Dr. Beanson has taken a toy for babies).
More plot coming soon!
In the end, Dr. Beanson FINALLY buys the Toy, and he and the Little Guy clones throw a party.
Greeny Phatom The Movie was originally being titled 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 20th Century Fox and Sony Wonder, following an unreleased prototype distrubuted by Warner Bros. internationally and directed by Tim Burton. After the film recieved a PG-13 rating, Stainton took over director, and the plot was redone using the plot for Dr. Beanson and The Toy, as 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. The film was originally stated as a November 2, 2001 release, but it was pushed back to June 21, 2002 to avoid competition with Monsters, Inc., but pushed a month forward to avoid competition with Lilo & Stitch.
