Celery Night Fever is the forty-ninth episode of VeggieTales.


Opening Countertop

The countertop opens with Bob and Larry as usual, but then gets interrupted when Jimmy and Jerry barge in. Jimmy and Jerry are upset that Larry ate their pie meant for three of them to share. This reminds Bob of a letter from Jason in Bangor, Maine. Jason‘s brother rode his bike without his consent and gave it a flat tire. Jason is mad at his brother and doesn’t know what to do. So, Bob tells Larry, Jimmy and Jerry, and Jason a story about friendship and forgiveness.

Fun Facts


  • This marks the first episode of Laura's redesign.
  • This is one of the few VeggieTales episodes not to have music composed by Kurt Heinecke.
    • That being said, it is also the only main episode to not have Kurt involved at all.
  • Guessing that the events the Groovy Brothers broke up happened in 1975, and it was 38 years ago at the time, then the episode takes place at least in 2013, which is about a year before it was released.
  • Lanny was originally going to have a brown wig.
  • This episode is dedicated to Eric Garner.
  • This is the last episode for several things:
    • The last episode where Lisa Vischer voices Junior, as well as the last episode where Cydney Trent voices Petunia; they were succeeded in both roles by Tress MacNeille starting in Noah's Ark until The Best Christmas Gift, when Vischer returned to the role of Junior and Kira Buckland succeeded MacNeille as Petunia.
    • The last time Tim Hodge voices Khalil, as confirmed in a tweet he made.
    • The last appearance of Grandpa George to date.
    • The last episode to have someone else singing the What Have We Learned Song.
    • The last episode to feature Jimmy and Jerry on the countertop.
    • The last episode where Junior wears his signature hat until Little Things Matter.
    • The last episode of the original series to feature Junior with clothing.
    • Miss Achmetha's last appearance until A Lifetime Supply of Joy.
  • This episode marks the return of Laura's freckles, and this is the first time Laura is seen with her freckles since Larry-Boy and the Rumor Weed. This is also the first time Laura wears glasses.


  • Despite Phil Vischer's wishes not to use magic on the show, Lanny did perform some in the episode.
  • Junior's yawn is the same yawn sound used back in Where's God When I'm S-Scared?.
  • This is one of the few episodes the Silly Song appears in one-third of the run.
  • The drawing Junior drew of Laura, in the beginning, was in her previous design.
  • The DVD cover states it's around 45 minutes. But the entire episode runtime is 52. However, if you remove the runtime from the opening, Silly Song, and credits altogether, it's actually 45 minutes.

Real-World References

  • The episode's title is a spoof on the 1977 film Saturday Night Fever.
  • The entire story plot is similar to the 2011 Muppets Movie, in which the main character tries to reunite an old band back together so they can save a historic landmark from being torn up by a rich tycoon.
  • The second record album in the credits is based on the Beatles' Abbey Road.
  • The song "Together" is a parody of the songs "Wannabe" by Spice Girls and "Stayin' Alive" by The Bee Gees.
