Status: Partially Found

The Tale of Charlie Pumpkinhead is an unfinished 3D-animated short film made in 2000 by DNA Productions, a studio that is most widely known for creating the popular animated television series, The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius. The short was written and directed by Paul Allen, and was apparently abandoned most likely due to DNA's production of Jimmy Neutron around the same time.

Plot[edit | edit source]

While not much is known concerning the plot, the short takes place on Halloween, the favorite holiday of main character Charlie Pumpkinhead, who displayed a great affection for candy.

Availability[edit | edit source]

While not much is known of the short, a portion of it survives on an archived version of the official DNA Productions website, as well as a personal one of a former DNA employee. With close examination, a brief snippet of the short can be seen on a TV in the teaser trailer for Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius. How far production came on this short remains unclear.
