The League of Incredible Vegetables is the forty-fourth episode of VeggieTales and the fourth Larry-Boy episode.

Plot

Bob and Larry get a video call from Alfred that a kid named Sean emailed Larry-Boy that he's afraid of everything, including snakes, and needs help to overcome his fear.

The League battle Flurry only to find out he has made a fake to disorient them. Then, LarryBoy gets frozen and a recall to the LarryCave is made. Alfred tells Junior that they should not trust in their super suits and instead trust in God. 

Thingmabob, S-Cape and Vogue head to "This Little Piggy" Grocery where Dr. Flurry has taken as a hideout, but as a surprise counter he freezes them. 

After the last stand battle between Ricochet and Flurry, he throws a snowball at the Fear-Dar thus destroying the Refrigerator and freeing everyone. Alfred claims Ricochet as an official member of the League of Incredible Vegetables.

Trivia

Remarks

  • Throughout the episode, the cable on Larry-Boy's plungers switches from the nylon cable texture to the basic yellow rope.
  • How was Officer Scooter supposed to know which one was the fake or the real one? Officer Scooter said the League got the fake one but never stated how were they supposed to know in the first place.
  • Shouldn't Junior be electrocuted dead from his super suit taking electrical damage? Speaking of that, he could've run away to avoid Dr. Flurry from almost shooting him nor LarryBoy even if the suit's broken.
  • Although the shopping list mentions a "mustache comb," it was never seen nor used.
  • On the newspaper shot, the same newspaper "Local Boy Helps League Save The Day!" is shown twice in the background.

Goofs

  • One LarryCave shot has shadows missing.
