Fun Facts[]


  • This was released on the same day as Bob & Larry's Campfire Songs.
  • This is the first album in the Sing-Alongs series to not include split tracks.
  • Come Over to My House and Play and A Friend is a Friend were previously sung in Bob & Larry's Backyard Party.


  • Two of the songs included in this album are re-used from previously released albums or productions, but with certain audio clips cut off or replaced by other audio clips:
    • In Love My Lips, the Silly Song Announcer's lines are omitted, and his opening lines are replaced by Larry and Archibald talking. The song also end during the part when Archibald attempts to talk to Larry when the latter scats for the second time, thus completely omitting the Announcer's closing line.
    • The beginning of A Friend is a Friend is also omitted.


  • Jerry has Jimmy's voice when they, Mr. Nezzer, and Mr. Lunt fight over the karaoke machine.

Inside References[]

  • The album covers contains several drawings on Junior's wall, one of which is the one of Junior's dad and house from Tales From the Crisper and The Gourds Must Be Crazy.
  • When Philippe is testing the microphone on the karaoke machine, he says "Hello! Hello! Testing, one, two, three!". This is the same line the Rumor Weed said when she spoke into one of LarryBoy's plungers in Larry-Boy and the Rumor Weed.
  • During I Got a Funny Feelin', Bob says "Oh, you know that's right," echoing one of Mr. Nezzer's lines from Rack, Shack and Benny, which was also uttered by Mr. Lunt in Jonah: A VeggieTales Movie.
  • Between Allelu, Allelu and What Do You Do (with a Tired Veggie)?, Bob and Pa argue about whether the former was sitting or standing, leading Bob to respond with "This is sitting, and this is standing." This is an obvious nod to Rack, Shack and Benny. Such a line was also referenced in A Very Veggie Christmas.

Real-World References[]

  • Consider Yourself originated from Oliver!, the musical adaptation of Charles Dickens' Oliver Twist.
  • What Do You Do (with a Tired Veggie)? is based on (and sung to the tune of) the sea shanty What Shall We Do with a Drunken Sailor (also known simply as Drunken Sailor).
  • One of the toys Junior brings up are Legos, which is a building block toy brand.
  • Some of the songs in this album had been popularly featured in the PBS Kids show, Barney and Friends.
