Jean Claude and Philippe are the french peas in VeggieTales.
In Jean Claude's debut episode, he was one of the main Philistines along with Cristoffe, where they were fighting against the Israelites with their greatest weapon, Goliath. However, they were defeated thanks to Dave.
In the next episode, he was paired up with Phillipe and they were guarding the walls the Jericho. They discovered that Joshua and the Israelites wanted to cross the wall, but the peas refuses them to, and dropped slushies on top of them. But they were defeated when the walls came down, crushing them along with the rubble.
Jean Claude and Philippe are very cheeky and mischievous.
Jean Claude and Philippe are green peas with freckles. Because they look very alike, it's hard to tell who is whom. The difference with them is their voices, as Jean Claude's voice is low and raspy, while Phillpe's is high and smooth.
Since VeggieTales in the House, they gained a different appearance so viewers can figure out which one is which. Jean Claude is bright green and has a red nose with a mustache. He also gained cartoony-type eyes and eyebrows. Phillipe is dark green has an orange nose with a french-style mustache. He also gained a thin unibrow.
- The French Peas are based on the Frenchmen from the "Monty Python" series.
- During production on "Josh and the Big Wall", a former staff member who is French-Canadian was offended that they're French and the bad guys. However, they showed the episode to actual French people and they thought it was funny.
- In Dave and the Giant Pickle, before Philippe Pea was made, there was another french pea named Cristoffe. He was voiced by Chris Olsen and aside from Very Silly Songs!, he has not come back for a long while until Beauty and the Beet. Cristoffe could have been Philllppe's original name, though.
- In the series, it's never been classified if both peas are related or not. Phil Vischer stated they're not.
- In the Larry and Mr. Lunt commentary for Jonah: A VeggieTales Movie, Larry reveals that the French Peas actually speak with Swedish accents.
