Tubi Snags Three Exclusive Movies from ‘Bob’s Burgers’ Studio Bento Box

In Monday’s Upfronts, Fox announced that its ad-supported streamer Tubi is getting a trio of exclusive animated movies from its Bento Box Entertainment studio (Bob’s Burgers, Duncanville, The Great North, Housebroken). The projects include original concepts from Aqua Teen Hunger Force co-creator Matt Maiellaro, comedian Sam Taggart and stand-up comic Jerron Horton.

First on the slate is Maiellaro’s  Pastacolypse. The movie is a wild horror-comedy concept about a billionaire celebrity chef who seeks revenge when a global ban on gluten destroys his life. In the process, Alfredo Manicotti is transformed into a hideous half-man, half-macaroni creature, and leads a pasta uprising against humanity. The fate of mankind rests with Alfredo’s spoiled daughter, the angel-haired heiress Emma, who must make the ultimate sacrifice to save the world from the impending ‘pastacolypse’.

In addition to ATHF, Maiellaro’s portfolio of Adult Swim cult toon hits includes creating 12 oz. Mouse, co-creating Perfect Hair Forever and serving as writer/producer for Space Ghost Coast to Coast and Sealab 2021.

Millennial Hunter is an action-comedy that centers on a flawed hero with a thirst for righteous revenge against his enemies: Millennials. The project is conceived by actor/writer/comedian Taggart (Los Espookys, ZIWE), host of the longrunning New York alt-comedy show Future Forms and named one of Brooklyn’s 50 Funniest by Brooklyn Magazine.

Big Bruh is a satirical comedy centered on an undefeated boxing champ who is “as ignorant as he is materialistic,” who gets paired with a “bratty kid with high morals” through the mentorship program Big Bruh. This odd couple comes from Duncanville co-producer  & writer Horton, who is also executive story editor for Tracy Mordan’s The Last O.G.
