Patience Takes Practice

Little Things Matter is the eighth episode of The VeggieTales Show, which teaches a lesson in faithfulness.


Madame Blueberry is upset that Junior failed to water her prized plant while she was out of town. Junior told her that he would water her prized plants! Junior thought it was no big deal, since it was just a plant. So Pa Grape and Archie teach Junior the importance of being faithful to what you say you will do using 2 biblical narratives: the parable of the talents and the story of David and Jonathan’s friendship.



Fun Facts



  • When the episode was originally released on Yippee, the video quality was slightly low, with interlaced frames and twitching of the screen a few times. This was fixed later in the day.
  • During the opening backstage scene, Madame Blueberry loses her pearl necklace as she shouts, "There's the culprit!".
  • Stephanie Southerland is incorrectly credited with voicing Miss Achmetha instead of Elise Napier.

Inside References

  • Jimmy's band manager costume is loosely inspired on the original outfit he wore as a member of Boyz in the Sink.
  • The set for Junior and Laura's bedrooms are based off their bedrooms from Celery Night Fever.
    • Junior also reads a magazine featuring the Groovy Brothers, with an image taken from the same episode.
  • The entirety of the "David and Jonathan" play makes several references to Dave and the Giant Pickle:
    • The sets and backdrops depict similars designs to the original episode, including King Sauls's and the Philistines' tents.
    • At the beginning, when the fight between David and Goliath is shown, an instrumental of Big Things Too as well as some of the original episode's score can be heard.
    • Goliath acknowledges that they're doing the story of David and Goliath again.
    • Several costumes are reused for the play; specifically the original costumes for Junior, Jimmy, Jerry and Archibald (with Archibald's costume now being worn by Mr. Nezzer).
  • The throne room is re-used from A ShakeSparagus Play.
  • Larry's costume for Jonathan is a reuse of his costume for Boaz from The Power of Love, with modifications to the color of the costume.
