VeggieTales on TV is the TV version of VeggieTales. It has been said that it was the first time VeggieTales has been on air, despite the VeggieTales Christmas Spectacular airing.

This version ran from 2006 to 2009. This version aired on NBC's Qubo block. It also aired on Ion and a Spanish dub on Telemundo. In 2016, the show began airing on Cozi TV and in syndication.


PlotEdit

Unlike the video and DVD series, the TV series takes place at Bob's house and not the Countertop. Like the videos and DVDs, Larry and Bob get letters, but they are given by Jimmy (as a mailman). Before the actual episode is played, sometimes another character attempts to help, like Archibald and his book of oddities, Pa Grape and one of his home movies, and Paco the Storytelling Mule (really played by Mr. Lunt). The things they do don't help with the problem and don't even make sense. After this, Larry or Bob cues the actual story.

After the show, Bob explains what to do to solve the problem. Then the episode ends with him saying to the viewers, "Thanks for coming to my house." The What Have We Learned song doesn't appear, nor does Qwerty.

Sometimes a silly song or another short will appear in the middle of the show, depending on the time.

ControversyEdit

The main controversy of this show was when NBC removed all references to God, at the request of the NBC network's standards and practices department. However, Bible story retellings were aired. Most fans, and slightly Phil Vischer (the creator of the original VeggieTales and voice of Bob) were angry about this. The "God made you special, and he loves you very much." quote at the end of the episodes were changed to "Thanks for coming to my house." However, the original quote was still available on closed captions and even the lip syncing wasn't changed. Because of this, the show was removed from Qubo's schedule in September 2009 along with LarryBoy: The Cartoon Adventures, although 3-2-1 Penguins stayed for a few months. The original series began airing in 2012 onwards on TBN's Smile of a Child block, while this show re-aired in 2016 on Cozi and in syndication, though.
