The Star of Christmas is the seventeenth episode of the VeggieTales animated series and the second holiday special in that series. It was released October 29, 2002, both Word Entertainment and Warner Home Video on VHS and DVD, and re-released on DVD in November 2007.


Cavis Appythart and Millward Phelps (Bob and Larry) are putting the finishing touches on their first Christmas musical -- "The Princess and the Plumber." With more electric lights than 1880's London could ever hope to illuminate, Cavis is sure his show will "teach London how to love!"

Unfortunately, little Edmund's (Junior Asparagus) Christmas pageant, featuring the unveiling of a beloved artifact, is scheduled for the same night. Which will London turn out to see? Find out in this classic new look at the one Christmas story that really can teach us to love each other.
