Fun Facts


Inside References

  • Bob and Larry both cry near the end of That's What Friends Are For, with the latter even saying "Hold me, Bob!" These are both references to the closing countertop scene of Madame Blueberry.

Fast Forward

  • Gourds Just Want to Have Fun, Walking on Sunshine and Footloose were later featured in VeggieTales Live! Sing Yourself Silly from 2010, which was touring around the same time the album came out. Some versions of the show (including the performance filmed for the 2011 DVD), however, would remove Walking on Sunshine for unknown reasons, possibly due to copyright.
