Rack, Shack & Benny is the fourth episode of the VeggieTales animated series, released in November 10, 1995 by Everland Entertainment on VHS, March 17, 1998 by Lyrick Studios on VHS, Subtitled "A Lesson in Handling Peer Pressure," it teaches viewers about avoiding unhealthy peer pressure and stand up for their beliefs. The video is a retelling of the biblical story of Shadrach, Meshach & Abednego, from the Book of Daniel. The main characters feature Bob the Tomato as Rack, Junior Asparagus as Shack & Larry the Cucumber as Benny. In the story, Mr. Nezzer requires that all his subjects bow down before a false idol. But three men, Rack, Shack & Benny, refuse and are thrown into a furnace. They remain unharned, and Mr. Nezzer recognizes the power of their God.

Rack, Shack & Benny adheres to the original story, but places it in a chocolate factory at which all employees are required to bow down before a giant chocolate bunny and sing "The Bunny Song."
