Big Idea Wiki

Fibs are extraterrestrial life-forms.

Their main purpose is to grow from someone lying about something, and they will grow to enormous monsters and cause destruction whenever they like. The only way to stop them is to eventually tell the truth, and the monster will shrink and vanish.

Fibs have three forms. The first form is just a small ball-like shape with spots, similar to Lumpy but with an antenna. They will grow bigger with a body and legs. Once the lie is big enough, they will turn into giants with arms with three fingers. Tim Hodge in the How to Draw series stated that they're built similar to a snowman.

Fibrilous Minimus

Fibrilous Minimus/Fib
  • Species: Alien

Fibrilous Minimus (commonly known as Fib) is the titular main antagonist of Larry-Boy! and the Fib from Outer Space!.

He was the first fib to land on earth. Jimmy and Jerry Gourd discovered it as a shooting star when it was falling through the atmosphere. He adopted a friendly demeanor to become Junior's "friend" when his dad's plate broke and Fib told him to make up a story that someone else broke it.

After Junior told a few lies, Fib became gigantic and decided to switch natures, destroy Bumblyburg, and hold Junior in his clutches.

Suddenly, Junior discovered that Fib had only become his enemy.

Larry-Boy did not defeat the Fib, as he was squeezed until his plunger popped out and almost eaten alive.

Once Junior realized that he's the only one to stop it, he told everybody the truth and in the end, the Fib was defeated by Junior telling the truth before he could eat Junior and Larry-Boy.

He speaks in a New Jersey-esque accent.


At first, he seemed like a nice little alien, but he can get to be an extremely big problem once Junior told a few lies. The Fib, when big was truly manipulative, traitorous, violent and deceiving. At first, he seems to be helpful and cooperative when he helped Junior get out of trouble. However, when he reached his maximum height, he begins to be rather destructive and obstreperous when he causes a mess.

He is also shown to be very greedy, oppressive, temperamental and dangerous when he tried to eat Junior and Larry-Boy.

Fun Facts

  • His voice is pitch-shifted like most of the characters, but it changes as he grows. Tim's regular voice starts when the Fib gains legs.
  • The Fib is the second VeggieTales character to be deceased and the second whose demise is shown onscreen. The first one was Goliath. However, in the Little Golden Book adaptation of the episode, he just shrinks to his first form.


  • That's the things about fibs, Junior! We grow! Now that I'm big, it's my turn to call the shots, and you belong to me!
  • Don't worry, Junior. A little fib couldn't hurt anybody....right?
  • Why don't you come and make me, little purple man?!
  • Even a little lie can get really big, really fast! And a big lie can just swallow you up! And Junior, you made a really big lie! Haha haha!

The Red Fib

The Red Fib
  • Species: Alien

After the blue Fib's defeat, a red-colored fib landed in Bumblyburg, in another neighborhood looking for somebody to help it grow. While it's unknown if another lie will occur, it's likely that LarryBoy now knows how to stop such aliens from outer space, given how he saw Junior stop the first one.


Fun Facts

  • The Red Fib makes a final appearance in the Mission, as one of the obstacles Larry-Boy must avoid on the road to the Bumblyburg Aquarium.
  • Phil Vischer stated in a Tweet that there was no planned dynamic for the Red Fib. It was just an indicator that Larry-Boy would be needed again sometime in the future.
