Raising Christian kids can be really hard. When my kids were young, it was a struggle finding shows that built good moral character.

We watched a lot of different VeggieTales episodes and VeggieTales movies to get us through that season of life. We occasionally still watch VeggieTales Videos when we teach the children’s class at our church or when my 10-year-old son feels like watching one.

Did you know that there are 50 VeggieTales episodes available?  I’m talking about the original VeggieTales episodes. I would classify some of these episodes as VeggieTales Movies since some of them are longer than a short episode.

We haven’t watched all 50 of them but we’ve watched a good amount. Today, I want to share our favorite VeggieTales episodes and movies.

What Are The VeggieTales Episodes About?

VeggieTales is about animated fruit and vegetable characters that star in stories showing good moral character based on a Christian lifestyle.

The stories re-create Bible stories and are aimed towards children ages three to eight years old. Although you can watch them at any age. I’m often convicted by them as an adult. As Christians, we are striving to be like Jesus and that takes a lifelong effort.

VeggieTales Characters Names

Just like any type of show or movie, there are a main set of characters. Here are the VeggieTales characters that you can expect to see in these VeggieTales Episodes and Movies.

  • Larry The Cucumber
  • Bob The Tomato
  • LarryBoy
  • Junior Asparagus
  • Laura Carrot
  • Petunia Rhubarb
