Night of the Living Carrots is a 2011 Halloween short animated film, based on Monsters vs. Aliens and produced by DreamWorks Animation. Following the 2009 short, Monsters vs. Aliens: Mutant Pumpkins from Outer Space, a mutated carrot has spawned hundreds of zombie carrots taking control of the subject's mind. Dr. Cockroach determines that the only way to defeat them and free their victims is for B.O.B. to eat all of the carrots.

In a theater, B.O.B. introduces the story parodying typical horror films, with a recap of the events of Mutant Pumpkins from Outer Space, and tells the audience to be prepared for a story guaranteed to give them nightmares.

The scene then shifts to the twist ending of the previous special. The Zombie Carrot charges at the camera, but is stopped by a gate slamming into it. Carl Murphy announces to the children of the Modesto suburbs that a costume contest was starting and the winner would get their weight in candy. B.O.B., dressed as a pirate, takes all the candy. Outside, he hears a strange voice and is frightened by the zombie carrot, but mistakes it for a child in a costume. Believing the carrot would win the costume contest, he throws it inside where it immediately bites Carl, turning him into a zombie.

The guests flee the Murphy house and the carrot is blasted by Dr. Cockroach's scanner. Carl snaps out of his zombie state and Doc theorizes that the carrot was contaminated by the mutant pumpkins and the curse could only be lifted by eliminating the infected carrot. However, the remains of the carrot replicate themselves into more zombie carrots, reinfecting Carl. Against Doc's advice, B.O.B. uses the scanner to blast the carrots and before long, B.O.B., Doc and Missing Link are completely surrounded.

General Monger arrives but he falls victim to the zombie carrots. Doc, Link and B.O.B. retreat inside the house to create a barricade. B.O.B.'s bungling leads to Link getting infected and both Doc and B.O.B. retreat to Susan's old room, where a stray zombie carrot seemingly infects B.O.B.; this appears to have no effect however and Doc realizes that B.O.B. is immune because he has no brain. Doc theorizes that the only way to save the day is that B.O.B. must eat all the carrots.

B.O.B. has a flashback revealing a fear of carrots; when he was young, he was force-fed carrot puree by General Monger. B.O.B. is unwilling to eat the carrots and escapes through the window to the roof, but when he sees his zombified friends, he decides to eat the zombie carrots.

B.O.B. eats every zombie carrot, rendering him obese. He is about to eat a "Nutty Buddy Butter Bar" for dessert when he sees his friends are still zombies. The original zombie carrot appears and B.O.B. is unable to pursue due to his weight. The carrot opens the bar, causing B.O.B. to chase it down and eat it whole as a chocolate-covered carrot. Link, Monger and Doc snap out of their zombie-like states and hug B.O.B. causing him to burp out an orange cloud.

Back in the theater, B.O.B. reminds the audience to eat your veggies, or they just might eat you, but his shadow morphs into a zombie carrot.
