God Made You Special is a VeggieTales DVD released in 2007 featuring a compilation of previously released material, along with some new scenes and a new story.


Bob and Larry decide to do a whole episode showing what they mean when they close each episode with the phrase "God Made You Special". Larry surprises Bob with balloons and party music as the rest of the veggies arrive, much to Bob's dismay. Junior comes in to share one of his favorite stories they have told, and the first segment starts.

Segment 1: "Dave and the Giant Pickle"

Larry tells Bob that they have a group of Veggie kids to interview, and they express their opinion on the previous story.

Song 1: "Belly Button" (from The Ballad of Little Joe)

Larry then introduces the next segment about Bob's Vacation from the previous year, which Bob clearly is not too thrilled about.

Segment 2: "Bob's Vacation"

While asking Bob and Larry for food, Jimmy and Jerry recall their first episode of VeggieTales.

Segment 3: "The Gourds Must Be Crazy!" (from Are You My Neighbor?)

After this segment, we once again hear the opinions from the Veggie Kids at the playground.

Song 2: "The Yodeling Veterinarian of the Alps" (from The End of Silliness?)

Bob finally gets a chance to tell his story, and the final segment of the show begins.

Segment 4: "A Snoodle's Tale"

Bob and Larry say goodbye from the countertop, the kids talk about how God made them special, and Junior closes the video with the final song.

Song 3: "My Day" (from The Wonderful World of Auto-Tainment!)

Fun Facts


  • My Day is the video's closing song.
  • There were a few differences between pre-production and the final version:
    • "Dr. Jiggle and Mr. Sly" was going to be included, but this idea was scrapped for unknown reasons. This was probably due to time constraints. The Veggie Kid interviews for this can be viewed if all the questions in the Trivia are answered correctly.
    • There was going to be a brand new Silly Song.
  • This is the first episode for a few things:
    • The first time when the concept of interviewing kids was used since the first two Heroes of the Bible! compilations.
    • The first time when SlimboJones animated for VeggieTales.
  • This video aired on "Smile".


  • Lisa and Mike Asparagus appear in the "Parents" section of the DVD menu, despite neither of them appearing in any of the compilation's countertop scenes (although they do appear respectively in My Day and The Gourds Must Be Crazy, both of which are included in this compilation).
    • On another note, Lisa is only seen wearing the white band of her dress in this menu, while Mike is not wearing anything at all.


  • When the intro animation to the main menu plays, Jimmy appears to go right through Qwerty.
  • Mr. Lunt was missing his teeth while the balloons were falling.
  • The credits lists a few things wrong:
