The Couch Tomato is the seventh episode from Phineasnferb to use the new character designs. When Bob is too sucked into the TV to host the show, Larry and Junior must figure out a way for him to to his duty. A lesson in responsibility.


Larry welcomes the kids to VeggieTales, and wonders where Bob is. He gets a little worried as to where he could be. Just then, Junior comes in and wonders if he can co-host again. Larry says why not because Bob is nowhere to be found. Junior asks if they got a letter. Larry says yes, because they received a letter from Logan of Denver, Colorado. Logan is having trouble doing the chores that his older brother is giving him, and he doesn't know what to do. Larry thinks that's a great question, but can't really answer it right now because they're trying to find Bob.

Larry calls Bob and wonders where he's at. It's time to start the show. Bob says he'll be right over after the Apple Powers marathon. Larry wonders how long Bob has been watching movies. Bob burps and says all day. He's watched the entire Fennel Faceoffs trilogy, all eight LarryBoy movies, the Lord of the Beans, all three Minnesota Cuke movies, and Inspicable Me. Larry tells Bob to come over to the countertop and take his responsibility as show host. Bob says maybe later. He hangs up. Larry shakes his head.

Larry tells Junior about Bob's problem. Junior says that's very irresponsible of Bob. Larry gets a great idea. What is happening right now will be the story they tell Logan to help him learn about responsibility. Junior likes the idea too. Larry is lucky he has a silly song ready for the break. Junior declares they go over to Bob's house. They head over.

They see Bob in a dark room, finishing the last Apple Powers movie. Larry tells Bob he needs to take responsibility as show host. That's the job that God gave him. Bob tells Larry to be quiet as he takes a bite of a pizza slice. He says it's almost time for the Jimmeas and Jerb marathon. Larry rolls his eyes. He thinks it's time to try and get more people to help convince Bob to go to the show.

Larry has gathered Jimmy, Jerry, Pa Grape, Mr. Lunt, Archibald, and Petunia. They all give Bob lectures about responsibility that don't seem to be working. He's too sucked into Jimmeas and Jerb. Jimmy points out how the gourds on TV look awfully familiar. Larry thinks it's time for a silly song break.

After the silly song, Pa Grape thinks that was one of his best songs yet. Larry thanks him, and they continue to lecture Bob. Finally, Petunia turns off the TV. Bob starts to complain and throw things. Jimmy says this is not like Bob at all. Larry decides it's time to take a trip down memory lane to get Bob back into character. Larry starts recalling a bunch of moments from the show. It helps.

Bob finally snaps out of it and apologizes to everyone for the way he acted. He shouldn't have been so lazy, especially when he had to work. God gave him the responsibility of being the host of VeggieTales. He's ready to go back and host. Larry says it's kinda too late, because they're running out of time. But he does think it's time to talk about what they learned today. Everyone goes to the countertop.

Once they get back to the countertop, they talked about what they learned. They learned that you need to take responsibility for the specific duties you are given, and that you'll feel great when they're accomplished. Then, QWERTY shows a verse. Larry then says to Logan that even if his brother gives him chores he doesn't like to do, he should still get the work done, because the rewards might just be pretty great. Then, everyone signs off.
