"Dear Bob and Larry, I am six years old. Sometimes I think there are monsters in my closet. That makes me real scared! Can you help me?"

Bob tells Lucy to check her closet if there’s any monsters, before showing the story starring Junior Asparagus.

Fun Facts

  • This is the only letter that was actually read by a child. Lucy Anderson was voiced by someone Phil met at their local former church. Phil also stated that they stopped this technique for letters because it was going too slow for runtime. Also, this is the only letter in which Bob is a fourth the size of.

Sender: Myra Eggleston

Location: Youngstown, Pennsylvania

From Dave and the Giant Pickle

She tells Bob and Larry-Boy that she has a lot of older siblings that can do many special things like ballet or play soccer. But she's small. So she is quite unsure if there's anything that is super special about herself.

Sender: Victor Bartholomew

From Josh and the Big Wall!

Victor has a problem. He says there's a kid named Louis in his class, who hit him yesterday. Now in church, Victor just learned that God wants us to be nice to people, even when they're not nice to us. But Victor doesn't really feel like doing that. Deep down inside, he wants to hit Louis back. What should he do? Should he do it his way or should he do it God's way?

After the video, Victor will hope not being nice to people isn’t fun, and maybe Louis doesn’t need a punch in the nose, maybe he needs a friend.

Sender: Lucy Thomas

Location: Bismarck, North Dakota

Sender: Cody Gordon

From Duke and the Great Pie War

Cody became a big sister and likes her new baby brother, but sometimes she gets angry because no one in her family pays attention to her anymore, and her mom always asks her to help with the baby, and thus can't play as much as she used to. She also says that her mom wants her to show love to her brother, but she is not so sure how or why.

Bob and Larry tell Cody that God gave us families to help each other and the best way to solve her problem is to think of her little brother first, similar to how her mom looked out for her, and that’ll help him grow up to be a great brother, and Cody will feel good, because she helped.

Helping others would make us good for a while, but not for long, and happiness that lasts longer is called joy, and it comes from using our gifts God intended to the people around us.

Bob said to Zachary, “Zachary, it’s wrong for the kids at school to make fun of Joseph. But it’s also wrong to see it happening and not do anything about it. The right thing to do is to get involved. Let the other kids know that it’s not nice to make fun of people, because it hurts their feelings. Tell your parents or a teacher what’s going on and they can help too.

From Noah's Ark

"Dear Bob and Larry, My new baby sister just came home from the hospital. The thing is, I prayed for a baby brother. I had big plans for a brother! Now what am I supposed to do!? Why would God do this to me? Your friend, Chris."

Larry tells Chris that he really wants a little brother, but God’s plan for him is to have a sister. Because He loves him and knows what’s best for him, he can trust it’s the best plan he ever had. And Chris hopes one day he’ll be glad he has a sister.

Marco

From God Wants Me to Forgive Them!?!

The day before the episode, Bob was walking home from his bowling league when he bumped into Marco; one of his and Larry's T.V. friends. Now, Marco had a question for both Bob and Larry. He says that whenever his baby sister does something that makes him mad, and then she says she's sorry; Marco's mom says that he needs to forgive her. So he asks why does he need to forgive.

Bob states that Colossians 3:13b is why we need to forgive.

Larry

In Madame Blueberry, after he received the Suvee Action Jeep he had always wanted, Larry states he still needs some things that'll make him happy (eg. camper, dirt bike, jet ski, action hang glider, etc.) Bob asked him how much stuff he needs to truly be happy, which Larry responds with "I don't know. How much stuff is there?" So Bob decides to use that as the topic for the episode with a bit of help from The French Peas.

Soon, he learns that nothing makes him feel better in the end.

In Sumo of the Opera, Larry had to go to a toy drive, leaving Bob with his substitute Lutfi on the countertop. However, Larry ends up getting exceedingly lost, runs out of coins and is then stuck on a payphone at the end of the subway line. Larry tells both Bob and his replacement that he's ready to come home and call it quits, but Bob and Lutfi decided to tell Larry some stories that'll motivate him and make him persevere.

In Robin Good and His Not-So-Merry Men, he lost his hamster Squeaky (which coincidentally is the name of the hamster Edmund Storch from Lessons from the Sock Drawer lost) and fell off the countertop. As a result, he had a bad day just like Eddie (see above for who Eddie is). So, Bob decided to tell both Eddie and Larry some stories that could help both of them.

Afterwards, they both felt a lot better.

In the second installment of Minnesota Cuke's adventures, Larry decided to stop for lunch at a Burger Bell before the show. He was praying and singing over his lunch where he was sitting, but some customers in the other booth were extremely cruel towards Larry and laughed at him for singing and praying over his meal. That made Larry think that he's doomed to a life of shame. So, Bob had to tell Joey from Philadelphia that Larry's problem was much more important.

After the recap of the adventure, Larry says, “So, if I decide I want to sing a song and thank God for my food, I don’t need to feel humiliated and worried about other people’s opinions”.

Libby Forcucci

From LarryBoy and the Bad Apple

"Dear Larry-Boy, I just love watching you help people escape fibs and rumors. But I've got something in my house I just can't escape, and now I need your help. I really love playing video games. Sometimes all I can think about is playing. Even when I'm supposed to be doing my homework, or cleaning up my room, I'll look over to that controller, and I can't help picking it up and playing. What should I do?"

Bob tells Libby to ask God first to help her out with the things that would keep her from being the kid He wanted her to be, leading to Alfred’s explanation of Larry-Boy’s weakness: chocolate and “I fear video games might have a similar effect on our friend, Libby.” Larry explains to Libby that there’s nothing wrong with playing video games once in a while, but when they keep her from doing her homework and helping her mom and dad around the house, they’re keeping her from being the kid God wanted her to be as well. Alfred says she also might have to ask her parents to help her avoid video games and their presence.
