HAHAHA rip in peace poor anon’s childhood

Whoa veggietales. I think I only ever saw the silly song? But they were the best. One of my friend's dad made all of the characters out of model magic. I have no idea why he did, but I thought it was the neatest thing

AWWW cute veggietales memories

because i am free to express myself as the veggietales lovin fuck i am

You're making me nostalgic for Veggie Tales! I'm pretty sure it was my first media obsession but I haven't watched anything new from it in many years. I do remember loving that Silly Songs had a small plot if you watched them in order and Larry actually got fired for messing up so much but it was resolved in a sing-along DVD/VHS. Ahh sorry, memories are flooding back.

YES!!! THAT WAS THE ONE WITH THE CHEESEBURGER RIGHT!! and i remember archibald would just cancel the silly songs he deemed were too silly before they even played ahaha

man veggie tales was so good.. and surprisingly well written too?? i probs missed this as a kid but the dialogue is fricking hilarious (im watching eps rn) there a lotta wit in each punchline its cool

BAHB

maybe you should read a book

There's a VeggieTales version of A Little Princess, which is a book I was obsessed with in elementary school. It's about a little girl with an overactive imagination and a gift for storytelling who uses these things as a coping mechanism when her life becomes horrible. She basically survives tragedy and abuse through blatant escapism. In the VeggieTales version, instead of surviving by pretending the bad things aren't happening, she prays a lot and reads the bible. Also there's singing produce.

It's so weird that today I woke up and was like "what ever happened to Veggie Tales?" Then I started to remember that my sister and brother used to watch them all the time with me as kids cause we used to be really religious and we had the chocolate bunny episode on VHS. That shit was on nonstop when we were kids. It's kinda cool and nostalgic to see that they have changed so much. And weird that now you're rebloging stuff about it. We need to stop sharing minds Yam.

weeeiiirrddd. well my sib and i watched the jonah movie like a week ago on netflix, there were a few old eps we loved on it and we ended up watching it too. laughs, i used to watch the show A LOT at sunday school and had a few VHSs (IDK WHERE THEY ARE NOW D:)

ive been seeing a few posts on my dash lately… i really missed some of these shorts and i havent seen most of the new ones.. i might check em out

ive come to realize that veggie tales was most definitely my first obsession. my gateway series to fandom-ing as a child. like, the series I watched so much i started memorizing episodes and would quote it all the time. WOW

So like, VeggieTales has seriously come a loooooong way from when they first started out. The screenshot on the left is from the very second episode God Wants me to Forgive Them?! (1994) and the one on the right is from Moe and the Big Exit (2007)

Just looking at the stills you can tell how much they’ve improved over the years. The art, the writing, the story telling, the direction, the music, the jokes… They’ve all gotten so much better than the episodes I watched as a kid. If you wanted to start watching some shorts I’d recommend anything 1997 or after. That’s around the time they really started to step it up I think.

Also if you want to compare actual animation, check out this Silly Song from 1994 (possibly 95? I don’t remember exactly) and this one from 2003
