Very Silly Songs! originally known as A Very Silly Sing-Along! is the seventh episode of VeggieTales. It was distributed by Word Entertainment in 1997 and Lyrick Studios in 1999. It was first released on DVD in 2004.

Plot

This episode starts immediately with the counter top, initially skipping the theme song. Larry the Cucumber, thinking this is the very first "VeggieTales workout video", begins a jumping workout in time to generic, upbeat workout music, then proceeds to trampoline exercises. However, after jumping progressively higher, he hits his head on the cupboards... again and again.

Bob then comes on-screen and explains that this is actually the very first "VeggieTales sing-along tape". To demonstrate, Bob has the French Peas type some lyrics on Qwerty, making the words appear at the bottom of the screen so people can sing along at home. However, they don't stop even after Bob stops singing, and the scene degenerates into true chaos as Bob yells "Roll tape!".

After several songs, Larry, yet again misunderstanding the point of the sing-along, introduces the kids to the very first "VeggieTales home improvement video". Larry announces his plan to replace a leaky fixture on the sink with a new one "which will be quite attractive, and last for years to come." However, Jimmy Gourd doesn't turn off the water supply for the kitchen (he thought they were working on bathrooms and decks), sending Larry flying into the air by a geyser of water when he twists the fixture off.

Larry then introduces his home-viewers to the very first "VeggieTales financial success video". Bob comes onscreen and finally explains the sing-along theme to Larry, who then asks what song they'll do first. Not wanting to explain now that they're already almost done with the show, Bob walks off, and Larry boasts to him about having bought a chocolate factory with no money down.
