VeggieTales is an American series of children's 3D computer-animated television shows, videos, and feature films featuring anthropomorphic fruits and vegetables in stories conveying moral themes based on Christian culture. It's had three TV series; in 2014 with VeggieTales in the House, 2017 with VeggieTales in the City, and 2019 with The VeggieTales Show.

Summary

Bob the Tomato and Larry the Cucumber are an unlikely duo in a world of talking vegetables. The two friends learn about honesty, kindness, and forgiveness.

Why It Rocks

  1. The show is really entertaining, creative, and funny, it also manages to do a good job with its various lessons, like God, and without getting too preachy.
  2. The animation in Softimage and Maya is really appealing to watch.
  3. It spawn a Netflix-exclusive spin-off, VeggieTales in the House, which is funnier and a lot more entertaining.
  4. All the characters are lovable, funny and memorable.
  5. It teaches plenty of Biblical lessons and great morals that are not jammed down your kids' throat at all.
  6. Amazing voice acting.
  7. The stories are really interesting and entertaining.
  8. Cause you're his cheeseburger! His precious cheeseburger!
  9. Catchy and heartwarming songs. Most notably, God is Bigger.
  10. There are also good dubs of the show.
  11. A lot of pop culture references such as Madame Bovary, Saturday Night Fever, The Avengers, etc.
  12. Catchy theme song.
  13. It was one of the first series to be animated entirely in 3D.

Bad Qualities

  1. While the Softimage animation is pretty okay most of the time, some of the Softimage animation in the first four 90s era episodes often times has errors like objects clipping through something and other minor mistakes, with one major example being the inconsistent lighting in "Are You My Neighbor?".
  2. It had some weak episodes, "The Wonderful World of Auto-Tainment!", "Sweetpea Beauty", and "Meaningful Life". "The Wonderful World of Auto-Tainment!" suffered from low-quality jokes, recycled music and rushed Maya animation and graphics, and both "Sweetpea Beauty" and "Meaningful Life" were made by an animation studio which focused on the pre-rendered Maya animation and thus looked low-quality for 2010 standards.
  3. Some of the dubs on the other hand, especially the Persian dub, were pretty mediocre.
  4. While the voice acting is very good for most of the dubs, the Arabic dub was not well received.
  5. It's series finale wasn't too good as well since it was the beginning of the Netflix series design era, as well as other flaws.
  6. The episode "LarryBoy and The Fib From Outer Space", although exciting in any way, recieved a lot of letters from parents criticizing it for a few flaws, Larry being too serious, some dark and intense scenes, such as the Fib catching Junior, Larry stating he is going to die if he and his Larrymobile crashes into a water tower (as well as Alfred, who is Archibald Asparagus, telling him to stop yelling at him), and shouting "GOODBYE BUMBLYBURG!!!" when he was about to be eaten by the enlarged Fib.
  7. "King George and The Ducky" received tons of criticism for Larry's behavior when he played as King George, since many fans hated to see Larry be selfish and mean (it could be because viewers always thought Larry wasn't the person to do such thing) although it was part of the episode and the main characters are only playing as the story characters.
  8. Although the LarryBoy episodes were okay, not only the first one as mentioned above was intense and dark, but the aforementioned episode and the second one ("LarryBoy and the Rumor Weed") always showed that LarryBoy didn't save the day or defeat the villains, but other characters such as Junior and Laura did (for Junior, he defeated the Fib by telling the truth about breaking the Art Bigotti plate, as well as encouraging the others to say nice things about Alfred to defeat the Rumor Weed with Laura). Fortunately, the third LarryBoy episode (the Bad Apple one) finally depicts LarryBoy defeating the Bad Apple.

Trivia

  • It was first pitched to Nickelodeon in the early 1990s; however, Nickelodeon refused the show, because they didn't want to air CGI cartoons at that time.
  • Contrary to popular belief, VeggieTales wasn't the first half-hour long CGI show, as that record was claimed by the Incredible Crash Dummies, which aired on Fox Kids a few months before the first episode was released to Christian bookstores in 1993. However, Crash Dummies was Canadian and wasn't entirely a series, making it the first half-hour long entirely CGI series produced in the United States, a year before ReBoot.

I do agree that in the first episode of VeggieTales the animation was pretty creepy I saw a bunch of faces is like like the face bed junior made you'd when he said that the song might be nice he's in then when he goes quiet his face looks very creepy and looks like it's tearing my soul and Bob space when and he thought that Junior got it after he said get it and then Junior says we'll know and then he makes a face that is completely creepy and that looks very uncanny and crazy but I would appreciate them it's because of the technology now the time back then technology was in great I also noticed he said whenever Junior closes or opens his eyes very wide his eyelids clipping

The show was originally pitched to Nickelodeon in the early 1990s; however, Nickelodeon refused the show, because they didn't want to air CGI cartoons at that time before Jimmy Neutron. That's how Nick doesn't want to air CGI animated shows when VeggieTales was supposed to pitched to the network before Jimmy Neutron came.
