Duke and The Great Pie War is the 25th episode in the VeggieTales animated series. It is aired on PBS Stations on January 21, 2005, and It was released on March 5, 2005 by Word in Christian Stores and March 8, 2005 by SONY Wonder in both DVD and VHS format. Subtitled "A Lesson in Loving Your Family", it includes two stories aimed at teaching the value of family and the importance of putting others' needs ahead of your own. It is a prequel to King George and the Ducky.

Both features are based directly on accounts taking from the Bible. The first is retelling of story of the baby Moses and his sister Miriam from the Book of Exodus. The second story is derived from the Book of Ruth. In this account, Ruth and her mother-in-law Naomi seek the protection of a distant relative named Boaz. Ruth and Boaz fall in love, but Boaz must first challenge a closer relative for the rights to the family estate. The story is recast to a medieval setting in this video, also making slight references to Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
