Big Idea Wiki

Goliath is a recurring character of VeggieTales franchise.


While played a villain, the Israelites agreed with their enemies the Philistines that they would choose two champions to fight each other, and whoever's side won would rule over the other. The Philistines chose the giant Goliath, and Dave volunteered to fight for the Israelites. Even though Goliath was much bigger and stronger, Dave defeated him with a slingshot and a pebble, but most importantly, with the help of God.

Goliath makes a brief appearance in Josh and the Big Wall!, having a cookout with his family in the Promised Land, but unfortunately scaring away the Israelites who arrived there.

He also appears in Madame Blueberry on a menu in Stuff-Mart, fighting the Fib.

In The VeggieTales Show, Goliath reveals that he is just performing his villainous role in Dave and the Giant Pickle.
