Larry-Boy and the Rumor Weed is the 10th episode in the VeggieTales animated series, and the second installment of the Larry-Boy adventures. Little Shop of Horrors. On July 27, 1999 by Everland Entertainment on VHS, in July 27, 1999 by Lyrick Studios on VHS, and in March 28, 2000 by Lyrick Studios on VHS, on October 22, 2002 by Warner Home Video on DVD and VHS, on May 20, 2003 by Warner Home Video on DVD and VHS, on May 18, 2004 by Warner Home Video on DVD and VHS, and on July 29, 2006 by Sony Wonder on DVD and VHS. Subtitled "A Lesson in the Power of Words", it illustrates how destructive false rumors or negative words can be, and conversely, how positive words can do good. It is a mild parody of Little Shop Of Horrors. Unlike other episodes with the VeggieTales theme song at the start, this is one of the episodes without Bob the Tomato and the countertop segments. Marc Vulcano, the animation supervisor for the film had just joined Big Idea Productions from Sierra On-Line, Inc. This video was the last VeggieTals pro duction to be rendered entirely in Soft


Larry-Boy and the Rumor WeedEdit

Any rumors caught your ear lately?

Junior Asparagus and Laura Carrot learn just how easily rumors get started when they accidently launch a whopper about Larry-Boy's butler, Alfred! Before they know it, their little story is spreading all over Bumblyburg like a weed! Can Larry-Boy stop the rumor before Alfred gets hurt? Can anyone stop the rumor before Larry-Boy gets hurt?!?

In the end, the kids learn that God doesn't want us to tell stories that can hurt. He wants us to spread nice words!

Don't miss the action in ... Larry-Boy and the Rumor Weed!

The Good, the Bad, and the Eggly
