There is not much known about the original pilot for Barnyard, only that it was created sometime around the year 2000 and is now considered lost, with only a handful of screenshots surfacing. The pilot was produced by DNA Productions for Steven Oedekerk's O Entertainment in which they quote "What do animals do when humans aren't watching?" Although, some clips of the pilot can be seen in a rare teaser trailer for the Barnyard movie. The movie was to be released Holidays 2005 instead of 2006, and that the TV series was to be released in 2006, and not 2007.
