Are You My Neighbor? is the 3rd episode of the VeggieTales animated series. It was released in August 13, 1995 by Everland Entertainment on VHS, in March 31, 1998 by Lyrick Studios on VHS, and March 14, 2006 by Sony Wonder on DVD. Subtitled "A Lesson in Loving Your Neighbor", it features two short stories that teach viewers that they should love people even if they seen different or strange to them. The third segment is a parody of the film Star Trek.


Tale of Two CitiesEdit

Big Idea's critically acclaimed writing and animation bring the story of the Good Samaritan to life in this delightful adaptation of the parable. Through rhyme and song, children learn that loving your neighbor means helping those in need -- even if they don't live next door!

The Gourds Must Be CrazyEdit

Join Junior Asparagus and the crew of the USS Applepies as they boldly go where no veggies have gone before! Can Junior and the ship's engineer (Scooter) repair the Applepies before a giant meteor smashes it to bits?!? And what about "oddball" crew members, Jimmy and Jerry Gourd? Could they possibly help? This sci-fi spoof shows kids that "loving your neighbor" means appreciating those who are different, instead of making fun of them!

Are You My Neighbor? helps children learn how to love others even if they look or act different.
