The Power of Love is the fourth episode of The VeggieTales Show which teaches a lesson about love. It was originally released on Yippee on April 2nd, 2020, but was removed several hours later. It was later officially re-released on April 28th.
Laura Carrot declares she’s in love and is showing some of the craziest symptoms. She can’t eat or sleep and she says that her life will never be the same. Is that what love is? It’s through the Biblical romance of Ruth and Boaz that the Veggie crew learns about the kind of love that is powerful. It’s a love the changes the world because love isn’t just something we feel, it’s something we do!

- This is the first episode for several things:
- This is the second time VeggieTales has told a version of the Bible story of Ruth and Naomi. The first time was in Duke and the Great Pie War.
- This time, however, the story is done in a biblical setting, focuses more on Ruth and Naomi's relationship, Ruth and Naomi's personal lives, as well as the story having a shorter running time.
- This was the sixth episode in production, but the fourth released.
- Callie Flower is listed in the credits with Stephanie Southerland's characters, even though she didn't actually appear in the episode.
- All of Jean-Claude's lines during the closing scene aren’t pitch-shifted.
- The title of this episode is a reference to the Huey Lewis song of the same name.
- In addition, a cover of this song was performed on the album Bob and Larry Sing the 80's.
- The back cover of the two teen idol magazines include pictures of characters and references to Celery Night Fever.
- The picture of Jimmy Lucky on Laura’s magazine is actually a recycled picture of Dirk Evert from Sneeze if You Need To!
- Mr. Lunt suggests that love is a cheeseburger, which is an allusion to His Cheeseburger.
- Jimmy recounts a Bible story about a whale, as well as one about a giant and a little guy with a slingshot.
- In the Jimmy Lucky segment, Miss Achmetha wears her old nurse outfit seen in the original series.
- Petunia's Ruth costume is a re-colored version of her Mary costume from The Best Christmas Gift.
- At one point for each of them, Archibald and Jerry mistakenly refer to Orpah as Oprah, which is a likely reference to the person of the same name.
- The same Biblical costumes that Pa, Jimmy, and Jerry wear are recolored versions of the ones used in previous episodes of the series.
