Fun FactsEdit


  • While the FFS dub has onscreen text left in English, the M&E dub has them localized due to it being marketed as a Bob & Larrys Bibelgeschichten release.
    • To prove the FFS dub does the former, the following things are added:
      • Archibald can be heard saying "(distributor) präsentiert ein VeggieTales Abenteuer der Bibel...Jonas VeggieTales-Abenteuer!" in the title card, starting at "In association with FHE Pictures."
        • The Kinowelt version went lost until 2008, when someone who made a bootleg recording during the FFS dub's theatrical run uploaded the opening to his copy on YouTube and on various torrent websites. Speaking of which, he also claimed to have a video of his friends singing the theme song (starting at "Ist dein bester Freund 'ne Tomate?") on the same tape he recorded the movie on.
      • Junior says "Sie verkaufen Mitgefühl und Barmherzigkeit?" (English: They sell compassion and mercy?) while looking at the menu.
      • The executioner reads "Slap me, I'm Irish" after turning the demo pumpkin in the bloopers.
    • However, dubbing credits play after the Big Idea logo in the credits and the copyright screen in English fade out.
      • Speaking of which, on the M&E dub, the credits play like a regular episode would do, complete with the Lifehouse Film logo appearing at the end.
  • A sweepstakes promotion was held by Gerth Medien in which on the two weeks leading up to the first recording session at FFS, people could enter to win a chance to provide vocals for "Message from the Lord" (it is not included for the examples below) and, if they wished, have a role in the dub. The winners are as follows:
    • Günther Herrmann, who voiced the veggie telling Jonah, "Turn back!" as well as cheering after "Message from the Lord"
    • Thomas von der Groeben, who provided non-verbal sounds for the gourd appearing in the hand-drawn segment with Nineveh
    • Leon Meyer, who provided audience voices during the execution scene as well as cheering after "Message from the Lord"
    • Hugo Schülke, who chose not to provide any additional voices outside of "Message of the Lord," although he eventually would provide additional voices starting with The Ballad of Little Joe from the main series
  • To have Benedikt Weber, Kai Taschner, Patrick Schröder, and Frank Röth experience the same situations as their characters, all four of them were recalling memories of their parents in order to cry after the demo of the Slap of No Return. According to a man named Jorgen Künzel, he was part of a group of visitors who had won a trip to see the movie getting dubbed and did not know this until Benedikt told him about said technique.
