The Veggies (and Fruits) That Teach Bible Stories and Morals

Updated on March 8, 2008

About the VeggieTales Show

The VeggieTales show features Veggie characters (and a few fruit characters) that teach kids about morals through animated stories that are often a retelling of Bible stories. The slogan is Saturday morning fun with Sunday School values. The show is great for kids around ages 3 to 8 and is an entertaining way for them to learn about morals and Biblical stories.

The Main Recurring Veggie and Fruit Characters

Here is a list and a brief description of the roles played by the characters in the episodes. This list is not entirely comprehensive, but rather tries to include the characters that appear in several (or most) of the VeggieTales episodes.

Bob the Tomato: Bob is one of the main characters of the show. He hosts the show usually with Larry the Cucumber. He takes on the role of the serious and more knowledgeable host. He also occasionally plays the role of other characters in the different stories shown in episodes and movies, such as Cavis Appythart in The Star of Christmas.

Larry the Cucumber: Larry is the comical co-host of the show and often he is learning the morals of the show along with the viewers. Larry leads the Silly Song with Larry segment that appears in most episodes. He also stars in a spin off of the show called Larry Boy in which he is a superhero. He often plays a role as a character in the stories told in the episodes, such as Pirate Larry in the VeggieTales Jonah movie and as Daniel in Daniel in the Lion’s Den story in the Where’s God When I’m Scared episode.

Junior Asparagus: He is another main character that appears in many of the VeggieTales episodes including taking Larry’s place as host in the Josh and the Big Wall episode. Junior is a kid veggie with a big heart. He also appears playing a character in the stories in several episodes including playing David in Dave and the Giant Pickle, which is a VeggieTales retelling of the David and Goliath Biblical story.

Archibald Asparagus: He is an upper class character. He plays roles in some of the stories including being the star Jonah in the Jonah movie.

Mr. Lunt: Mr. Lunt is a gourd with a Hispanic accent. He is one of The Pirates who Don’t Do Anything that appear in some episodes including the Jonah movie. He also did the silly song His Cheeseburger.

Madame Blueberry: She is among the minority of the cast that are fruits. She has played several roles in stories in the episodes including an actress in The Star of Christmas and as herself in the episode called Madame Blueberry.

The French Peas: These characters are green peas that are parodies of Monty Python. They often play the villains in the episodes they are characters in the stories. Their roles include the defenders of Jericho in Josh and the Big Wall and the munchkins in The Wonderful Wizard of Has.

Mr. Nezzer: He is a zucchini who often plays roles as a business man and loses sight of the real meaning of holidays, such as his role as the owner of the Buzz Saw Louie factory in The Toy That Saved Christmas and his role as the owner of the Easter Egg factory in An Easter Carol. His other roles include owning a chocolate bunny factory in Rack, Shack, and Benny and briefly as Moses in Josh and the Big Wall.

The Peach: He is an interesting character in that he is the only one with hair and there is a joke about it. He appears in the silly songs called The Hairbrush Song and Oh, Santa!
