Fun Facts


  • This is the first VeggieTales triple feature, and the only one that was not exclusively sold at Blockbuster Video.
  • A screener VHS for this compilation has several differences from the final print:
    • A different title card, with a blue/black gradient background behind a picture of Bob and Larry from Where's God When I'm S-Scared?, is used.
      • Aside from that, there are no title cards between episodes.
    • The 1998-2000 intro plays twice before each episode except for God Wants Me to Forgive Them!?!.
    • While this tape has the initial appearance of the 1998 master of Where's God When I'm S-Scared?, it still uses the original 1995 Everland master of Are You My Neighbor? (but with the 1998 VeggieTales Theme Song spliced in, replacing the 1994 one). God Wants Me to Forgive Them!?! remains as is as usual (despite the theme song being cut from this one).
    • The credits play after each episode.
    • The 1997 Big Idea logo with the 1998 copyright info appears after the credits for Where's God When I'm S-Scared?, while the 1995 Big Idea logo appears after the credits for Are You My Neighbor?.
    • Are You My Neighbor? is placed before God Wants Me to Forgive Them!?!
    • After the credits for God Wants Me to Forgive Them!?! finishes, there is no Big Idea logo at the end, and it cuts to the Lyrick Studios logo.
  • This compilation was released on the same day as the mass market release of the first show, and the reissue version of the last show. It even includes the trailers for those two stories, hence being one of only two Bob & Larry's Favorite Stories! compilation tapes (the other being Junior's Favorite Stories!) to have trailers before the show.
