On This Day In Comedy… In 2013 ‘Cheech & Chong’s Animated Movie’ Made Its Theatrical Debut



On this day in comedy on April 18, 2013, Cheech & Chong’s Animated Movie made its theatrical debut, distributed by 20th Century Fox

This cartoon version of legendary stoner comedians Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong was directed by Branden and Eric D. Chambers.     The full-length film was written by Cheech and Chong and starred their voices. It was released on Blue Ray five days later and is their only film on that format.  

Cheech & Chong’s Animated Movie is a collection of their famous album routines in animated form.   Classics such as Sgt. Stedanko, Afghanistan, Earache My Eye, Ralph & Herbie, Trippin’ in Court, Acapulco Gold, Dave’s Not Here, Sister Mary Elephant, Let’s Make a Dope Deal and others all get the drawn-up treatment.    Tying them all together is a cartoon body crab desperately trying to get high off Tommy Chong’s THC ridden scalp.
