Fun Facts[]


  • It was made during production of Jonah: A VeggieTales Movie.
  • Tales From the Crisper is not featured on this release.
  • This is the only Heroes of the Bible volume to feature Larry-Boy.
  • There exists an extremely rare early 2002 VHS reprint by HiT Entertainment. It has a black tape with a white ink label, and it has a print date of March 22, 2002.
  • In the kids segments, an instrumental version of The Thankfulness Song plays in Madame Blueberry, although that song is not in the video.
  • All episodes use their 1998-2000 masters in this compilation and even on the DVD release of it. This is most likely because all episodes have not yet been remastered in high quality at the time until their VeggieTales Classics re-releases in 2003-2004.
    • However, international versions for Dave and the Giant Pickle uses the 2004 remaster (including the Os Vegetais DVD release). While the American version for this compilation, it oddly uses the 2000 master.


  • For some reason, the copyright year says 2001, meaning it was produced in 2001.
    • It is possible that the compilation was made in 2001 shortly before it was released on VHS in March 5th, 2002.
  • During the end credits, an instrumental of God is Bigger plays, although that song is not on the video.
  • Some international releases title this as, "Lions, Shepherds, and Queens (My God!)" Because of this, it could result taking the Lord's name in vain, because VeggieTales is a Christian-Related Show.
  • For some reason, the 1998 version of the theme song is shown.
    • This is likely due to the fact that the compilation was made ahead of time, so that there were enough copies of tapes/DVDs to be manufactured to be at the stores.
  • Love My Lips is uncredited.

Real-World References[]

  • The title is based off the quote "Lions, and tigers, and bears, oh my!" from The Wizard of Oz.
