PlotEdit

Opening CountertopEdit

In the first episode of VeggieTales, Bob the Tomato and Larry the Cucumber are on the countertop of a kitchen. Bob reads a letter from Lucy Anderson of Phoenix, Arizona who is scared because she sometimes think there are monsters in her closet. Larry says he once thought the same thing, but later found out that they were actually his fluffy bunny slippers, which are only "squishy", as opposed to "scary". Bob then asks her to watch a story about when Junior Asparagus got scared.

Tales from the CrisperEdit

When Junior, after watching a scary Frankenstein movie, is afraid to go to bed, he gets help from Bob and Larry, who teach him that God is bigger than anything he might be afraid of.

The Water Buffalo SongEdit

Wearing an oversized cowboy hat, Larry comes out and sings that "everybody's got a water buffalo," but Archibald Asparagus brings the song to an abrupt end over the obvious falseness of statement. The segment ends with Larry singing that "everybody's got a baby kangaroo," which makes Archibald so enraged, that he charges in and knocks Larry over.

Daniel and the Lions' DenEdit

Daniel becomes King Darius' trusted advisor, but some jealous scallions throw Daniel into the lion's den. Daniel realizes that God's love will always protect him.

Closing CountertopEdit

In the closing countertop sequence, Bob & Larry's computer, Qwerty, gives the audience a recipe for yummy meatloaf, followed by a Bible verse in which God says "So do not fear, for I am with you." -Isaiah 41:10.

TriviaEdit

  • In this video, Larry's voice is lower in pitch and sounds more like Bob. In later releases, Mike Nawrocki gives Larry a more higher-pitched voice.
    • In July of 1993, Phil Vischer, two young art school grads, and friends volunteering on weekends, produced this, the first fully computer animated direct-to-video produced in the United States.
  • 750, 000 units were sold through Christian bookstores, mostly through the word of mouth, before the VeggieTales videos were sold at mass market stores like Target, Wal-Mart and K-Mart.
  • The initial advertisement for this episode featured a toaster character among the main characters. The toaster was supposed to be part of the series before being rejected due to how impossible he was to animate.
  • The last section of this movie conflates different Biblical stories involving the Hebrew Prophet Daniel. For example, King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon and King Darius the Mede are combined into "King Darius of Babylon."
