Don't Give Up on Doing Good is the twentieth episode of The VeggieTales Show, which teaches a lesson in perseverance.

Plot

Bob is fed up. His show is languishing in second place, while his cross-town rival, Guy Broccoli, is in first place and getting all kinds of attention. Bob wants his show to have first place! Bob sees an opportunity to win by stopping Guy Broccoli from getting to his show! Pa Grape intervenes to tell the story of David who could have stopped his enemy, King Saul, by doing something wrong – yet David ultimately chose to do what was right. In the end we learn to trust God and to never grow weary in doing what’s right and good.

Fun Facts

Trivia

  • This is the first episode for several things:

Remarks

  • It's never explained where the column that Bob was standing on came from, since there isn't a hole for the column to go through.
  • The same recording of Jerry saying "Viral!" is used twice, although the second recording is higher-pitched and slightly sped up.

Goofs

  • When Guy Broccoli says "The door seems to be stuck," his mouth doesn't move when he says "seems to be".
