Have you ever wanted to eat out at the fictional fast food restaurant in Kevin Smith’s movie universe, Mooby’s? Now you can! Smith is teaming up with Postmates to make Mooby Meals to benefit No Us Without You, which is a fundraiser that provides meals for families in need during the COVID-19 crisis. There will also be a pop-up version of Mooby’s in Los Angeles later in the year.
Mooby’s has appeared in several films such as Dogma, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, and Clerks II. Derek Berry will back the pop up restaurant; he’s the same man behind pop ups such as Breaking Bad, Good Burger, and Saved By the Bell inspired places. Here is Smith’s Instagram post announcing Mooby Meals:

Ever since I first introduced the fictional fast food joint in my films, folks have said “You suck at movies, so open a Mooby's!” Now the folks who did @savedbythemax is building the @moobyspopup – an IRL eatery in Los Angeles that opens later this year, pandemic depending! But as a preview of what’s to come, a Mooby Meal will be available for delivery in L.A. via @postmates starting THIS SUNDAY and running til 4/25! Our takeout Mooby Meals include "Mooby's Messy Lasagna Sandwich" with a side of "Hater Totz" and "Chocolate Covered Pretzels" for dessert! And for your “toy surprise”, we include an autographed Reboot card from me, that will also entitle the bearer to front row slots when the pop-up is finally open to the public! And we’re donating the proceeds to @nouswithoutyou (providing meals to families in need effected by Covid 19). If you’ve ever seen #dogma, or #jayandsilentbobstrikeback, or #clerks2, or #jayandsilentbobreboot, you’ve seen fake people eat at a fake fast food joint! Now, BE a fake person eating actual food from a real restaurant! Many thanks to @heyitsderekberry and the #savedbythemax folks for making a dopey dream come true! Follow @moobyspopup and on the high holiday of 4/20, live the Mooby’s slogan “I’m Eating It!” (Mooby Meals will be prepared by Chef @royce_burke and the @secret_lasagna team. Limited amounts daily, all of which will be offered first come, first serve. Hours 12pm-8pm. Follow @MoobysPopUp for more info!)
Delivery will start on Sunday, April 19th and go until April 25th. You can expect the meals to include a Mooby’s Messy Lasagne Sandwich, Hater Totz, and a Cholate Covered Pretzel. There will also be a “toy surprise”, as well as a Reboot card autographed by Smith. Those who are card-holders can be entitled to preferred seating when a pop-up restaurant finally comes to be.
