  • (The episode starts in Bob's room sorting socks, suddenly Larry comes in calling his name, Bob shrieks as socks fly everywhere).
  • Bob: Yes, Larry?
  • Larry: How many times have I proved how fast I can run or how much milk I can drink?
  • Bob: I stopped counting years ago.
  • Larry: Well I've come up with a simple solution, (He shows Bob a card with Larry on it). Behold. The Larry Veggiecard. it has my picture on the front and it has my stats on the back.
  • Bob: What a great idea (Takes the card). Wait Larry, this card says you can jump 15 feet in the air.
  • Larry (jumping): That's my Trampoline stat.
  • Bob: It says you're a competitive eater.
  • Larry (while munching on Sardines): That's my Sardine stat (He gulps one down).
  • Bob: It says you love flying mammals.
  • Larry (with a blanket on his back): That's my bat stat,
  • Bob (while jumping out of his seat): This card is pretty cool, Larry.
  • Larry: And the best part is Pa Grape said I could sell them at his store. The whole town can collect us.
  • Bob: Us?
  • Larry: Behold. (He hops in front of Bob showing a card with him on) You can't a Larry without a Bob (he hands him the card). Trust me, everyoneis gonna want one of these.
  • Bob: I am a very popular tomato. Hmm. Larry, this card says I love to collect things to put on my head.
  • (Larry dashes and puts a cowboy hat on Bob).
  • Larry: That's your hat stat.
  • Bob: Ah.
  • (Fade to Pa Grape's store where Pa is wiping the counter as Bacon Bill slides to him).
  • Bacon Bill: Say, Pa, umm... where do you keep the Owl Cream?
  • Pa Grape: What is Owl Cream?
  • Bacon Bill: Whoooo knows. (He laughs as he leaves the store but Bob and Larry are at the front door with Boxes of their cards).
  • Larry: Veggiecards are here. Just a few Larry cards to start.
  • Bob: An extra-large shipment of Bob cards. (chuckling). I got a little carried away.
  • Pa Grape: Great! Just put 'em over here.
  • (Bob and Larry do so).
  • Bob: I'll go get the other box of Bob cards. I'm so excited.
  • Bacon Bill: Whoa. Cards with veggies on them. What do they do?
  • Larry: It's a Veggiecard. You trade 'em (He pulls out a card from the box to show Bill).
  • Bacon Bill: Why stop there? You could do your own puppet show. (He hops behind the counter and places two Larry cards in front) (Higher voice) Hi, I'm Larry. (Deeper voice) No, I'm Larry. (Higher voice) What a silly conversation, (In his own voice) Need I go on? Come on, these things sell themselves. (Approaches Larry) I gotta have one.
  • Larry: Well, you can't a Larry without a Bob.
  • Bacon Bill: Well I've got got enough allowance to get one today (grabs a Larry card). I'll come back for the Bob card later.
  • Bob: That should be enough to get started until we can make more.
  • Bacon Bill: You could make a Bacon Bill Veggiecard that smells like real bacon!
  • Larry; A scratchy-sniffy card? That's a great idea.
  • Bacon Bill: I'm full of great ideas. Have you ever heard of Owl Cream?
  • (Bacon Bill and Larry leave).
  • Bob: Everyone in town is gonna love collecting a Bob trading card.
  • (Ichabeezer is pushing a cart with Rooney).
  • Ichabeezer: You got new collectables and you didn't tell me? (he grumbles as he puts a Bob and Larry card in the cart). I'll take one of each in case either one of them becomes rare. (laughs) Then I'll be richer, I mean Rich.
  • Pa Grape: If you say so,
  • Ichabeezer: They should make a trading card of me, smartest veggie in town.
  • (Rooney Barks)
  • Ichabeezer: Down, Rooney, Dow. This is not a doggie treat. It's an investment.
  • (Fade to Bob and Larry's house where Bob is writing on his cards).
  • Bob: I'm so excited.
  • Larry: Clear out your shoeboxes, because here Veggiecards Series Two.
  • Bob: Series Two?
  • (Larry dashes in front of front with a Archie card).
  • Larry: Behold the Archie card. Check out his monocle stat,
  • Bob: Why a mayor card. I thought it was just gonna be us.
  • Larry: I figured, since we're all uniquely made in all unique ways, every card is worth collecting. Plus Pa said he'll sell more cards if I made 'em.
  • Bob: Did he say how well the Bob card is doing?
  • Larry: Nope but he did say, (in Pa Grape's voice) Make a card of me. So double behold! The Pa card. (shows Bob a Pa card). It's also a scratchy-sniffy card. Smells like a mustache.
  • (Fade to Ichabeezer's mansion where where he places his Larry card on a canvas).
  • Ichabeezer: Perfect. Now where'd I put that Bob card? (He looks under the desk just to find a rubber ducky and looks under the vase, the armor, the table, the pillow, but no luck, he groans). Rooney. You've gotta find me that card.
  • (Rooney barks excitedly and runs out the front door).
  • Ichabeezer: Good dog.
  • (Cut to Bob entering Pa Grape's store to find a big line of veggies clamoring for cards).
  • Bob: Is this the line for cereal?
  • Random Carrot: They released new Veggiecards.
  • Corn Woman: I hope they don't, like, sell out of Petunia before I get one.
  • (The veggies walk up as they continue clamoring, they all precede to take Veggiecards but not any Bob cards much to Bob's surprise, he grabs a Bob card and hops away from the crowd).
  • Pa Grape: Veggies sure love these trading cards. I don't know why.
  • Bob: I couldn't help but notice that there are still lots of me. It's almost as if people don't like me. I mean, the card. It's almost as if people don't like the Bob card,
  • Pa Grape: I think you just made too many of them. Try selling your card in person, one-on-one.
  • Bob: Great idea! That'll help show people my-- I mean, the card's potential. (he leaves the store).
  • (Cut to Ichabeezer looking at the canvas without a Bob card.  Rooney comes back panting and barking muffled with a plain carrot card in his mouth).
  • Ichabeezer: Nope, wrong card.
  • (Rooney spits the card out and drags down a cardboard box).
  • Ichabeezer: Nopem that's cardboard.
  • (Rooney grabs a clipboard in his mouth).
  • Ichabeezer: Nope, that's a clipboard.
  • (Rooney spits out the clipboard and starts grabbing random stuff like a book, cheese, and a fish bowl with Happy Sunshine Bubbles).
  • Ichabeezer: No, no, no! Not even close! (He pulls the Larry card from it's canvas and shows it to Rooney). Like this but with Bob.
  • (Rooney sniffs it then dashes off, cut to Tina with Veggiecards impersonating them).
  • Tina: (Imitating Madame Blueberry) I'm Madame Blueberry. I can make 1,198 different types of tea. (Imitating Jerry) I'm Jerry... I speak... in short... sentences. (Imitating Archibald) I'm the mayor. I lead this town like a boss.
  • (Bob approaches Tina with one of his cards)
  • Bob: Hi, I'm Bob. My hobbies include turning off lights that Larry leaves on.
  • Tina: Hey, Bob. I'm having so much fun with my Veggiecard stats.
  • Bob: Then you'll wanna get a Bob card in the mix.
  • Tina: (imitating Bob) I'm Bob, I enjoy organizing everything.
  • Bob: My stats are pretty interesting, huh? For instance my sock collection is--
  • Tina: Ooh, Rocks. What kind of rocks do you collect? Quartz? Feldspar? Gold?
  • Bob: Sock. I said sock. My sock collection is expansive.
  • Tina: Oh. What about extreme sport stats? Got any of those?
  • Bob: Does yard work count? One time, I raked a pile of leaves so big--
  • Tina: (imitating Bob) Hi, I'm Bob, I've never had an overdue library book? Thanks, but I think I got plenty of cards already.
  • (Bob can't believe of what Tina said, he just leaves).
  • Tina: (imitating Bacon Bill) Hi, I'm Bacon Bill. Everything I say is wackadoo!
  • (Cut to Ichabeezer at his desk using a magnifying glass at his card, Rooney opens his front door, he pushes Bob right in front of Ichabeezer).
  • Ichabeezer: Did you find my missing Bob?
  • (Rooney barks)
  • Bob: What's going on?
  • Ichabeezer: Never mind ( he leaves a confused Bob and Rooney).
  • (Cut to the outside of Pa Grape's store where the townspeople enjoy their cards, inside, Bob sadly places his boxes of cards in a wagon with a confused Pa Grape).
  • Pa Grape: Where are you going with those?
  • Bob: Nobody wants them. I'm doing you a favor and freeing up shelf space.
  • Pa Grape: Bob, just because no one loves your trading card doesn't mean you're unloved. Psalm 139:14 tells us to praise God because we're wonderfully made by him. That's what makes you valuably, not a card.
  • Bob: Easy for you to say, You're collectable.
  • Corn Woman: Like, check out Pa's sweeping stats.
  • (Pa sighs, fade to Bob walking a wagon to his trashcan while lively music plays).
  • Bob: Does anybody like me? (sighs then starts singing, as he sings he throws the cards into the trashcan).
  • Why oh why oh why oh why, can't I be a popular guy?
  • I sob, I sigh, oh woe is me.
  • Boo-hoo-hoo such misery
  • I cry, "Oh me, oh my, oh dear"
  • I just might cry for years and years
  • Fill bowls and barrels with my tears,
  • Where's the applause, where are the cheers?
  • Oh, Boo-hoo-hoo, oh woe is me
  • I don't have popularity
  • Not right, not fair, gloom, despair
  • Alas, alack, oh woe is me.
  • (As Bob finishes singing, he sobs and he walks away with the empty wagon, fade back to Ichabeezer's mansion where Ichabeezer is looking at Veggiecards on the canvases).
  • Ichabeezer: Ichabeezer card, Pa card, and the jewel of my collection, the rare Larry. Alright, Rooney time's up, where's my Bob card?
  • (Rooney barks quizzily)
  • Ichabeezer: Rooney? My collection isn't complete without that Bob card (sighs).
  • (Rooney whines)
  • Ichabeezer: Fine, I'll get a new one. Pa has about a billion of 'em.
  • (Rooney smiles, cut to Pa Grape's store and Ichabeezer approaches Pa Grape).
  • Ichabeezer: What do you mean they're all gone?
  • Pa Grape: No more Bobs left. How about this Corn Woman card? (he shows Ichabeezer that card)
  • Ichabeezer: No, no, no. I need a mint-condition Bob and I'll spare no expense (he lashes out).
  • Pa Grape: I'm sure someone has one.
  • (Cut to Bacon Bill walking down the road with two stacks of Veggiecards and Ichabeezer startles him).
  • Ichabeezer: I'll willing to pay top dollar for your Bob card, so give it to me.
  • Bacon Bill: Don't got it, don't got it. No Bob in this collection.
  • Ichabeezer: They don't sell them anymore? Super rare. Who would have one?
  • (They both spot Tina with her Veggiecards).
  • Both: Tina!
  • Ichabeezer: I need a Bob? Do you have a Bob?
  • Tina: I don't have a Bob. Should I?
  • Bacon Bill: (gasps) Bob is the rarest of all Veggiecards.
  • (Ichabeezer nods, fade to Bob entering his house groaning and looking rather upset, walks over to see a card of him on the floor, he picks it up)
  • Bob: Whoops, missed one, it's not a bad card.
  • Bob card: Of course it's not a bad card. We're not like any other.
  • Bob: But no one in town wants an ordinary Bob card because we're too ordinary.
  • Bob Card: Ordinary? Does anyone else in town have a stat on their card for "most clean refrigerator"?
  • Bob: I guess not.
  • Bob card: Only us. And who has the highest-lesson giving stat in town?
  • Bob: So high, we can teach ourselves a lesson.
  • Bob card: That's right! God made everyone unique with our own special stats. I'm special.
  • Bob: Because God made me special.
  • Bob Card: Exactly. I'm only reminding us. We already knew.
  • (Larry pops out of the kitchen whistling).
  • Bob: We're a very smart tomato.
  • Larry: Are you talking to yourself?
  • Bob: Aah. Yes, I mean, no.
  • (There's a knock at the door, Ichabeezer, Tina, and Bacon Bill suddenly enter in).
  • Together: We need a Bob card.
  • (Bacon Bill and Tina pants)
  • Ichabeezer: I don't care what it takes, I'm not leaving until I have one.
  • Bob: Here, you can have this one (he hands Ichabeezer the same Bob card he was just talking to). After all, you can't have a Veggiecards collection without a guy with unique stats like mine (Ichabeezer places his Bob card in his book of Veggiecards).
  • Tina and Bill: We want Bobs too!
  • Bob: I threw 'em in the trash can behind our house, you can help yourself.
  • Larry: Buried Treasure!
  • (Bill and Tina follow Larry outside as Bob hops over to Ichabeezer).
  • Bob: Where's your card, Ichabeezer?
  • Ichabeezer: Right here, in the front (hands Bob the Veggiecards book as Bob reads it).
  • Bob: "Most people thrown off a lawn in one day, 39" That's impressive.
  • Ichabeezer: Oh no, that stat's old, I'm up to 43.
  • Bob: It's quite a collection and I'm glad to be a part of it (he hands the book back to Ichabeezer).
  • Ichabeezer: Ah, now it's complete (laughs until he notices his Larry card missing). No wait, where's my Larry card?
  • (Fade to Rooney placing a Bob and Larry card with his bone in Ichabeezer's front garden and the episode ends).
