Big Idea Wiki

These are the locations where Big Idea made VeggieTales, 3-2-1 Penguins!, and LarryBoy: The Cartoon Adventures.


The first two shows were made at a storefront on the Northside of Chicago, Illinois, on West Foster Avenue and North Wolcott Avenue.

In July 1994, they moved to the front offices of an old screw factory on North Ravenswood Avenue and West Winona Street.

In October 1996, shortly after production on The Toy That Saved Christmas wrapped up, Big Idea moved to an office space at North Clinton Street, just a few blocks away from the Chicago Loop.

At the end of 1999, Big Idea's headquarters was moved to a former Woolworth's at Yorktown Center in Lombard, Illinois. This was meant to be a temporary location until they finished renovations on the DuPage Theater and the surrounding area into their new headquarters. Shortly after construction began the expected budget came in at $19 million, and with only $8 million in financing the project was canceled, making Yorktown Center their permanent location.

In January 2002, Big Idea opened a secondary office space in Los Angeles, California to oversee the production of LarryBoy: The Cartoon Adventures and the remaining episodes of 3-2-1 Penguins! When both wrapped up production, the offices were closed.

In July 2004, Big Idea relocated to Franklin, Tennessee at "The Factory" shopping mall. The office space purchased was previously the home of Forefront Records.

In December 2010, Big Idea's headquarters were moved to Billingsy Court. DreamWorks Animation shut down the offices in 2017 when VeggieTales in the City finished production.

Because Big Idea currently exists as an in-name-only unit, it no longer has official office spaces.
