The VeggieTales Theme Song is a polka song and the most iconic song used as the introduction for most of the VeggieTales episodes.

The VeggieTales Theme Song has had many different incarnations and versions over the years but has generally remained the same over time.

The song first appeared in 1993 in the first episode and was used until it was re-animated and re-rendered in 1998. The second version has used various clip montages over the years but has generally remained the same.

The second opening was used up until 2010, when the opening was entirely reanimated, re-recorded, and included all of the main cast of characters in the show. It was later updated once again in 2015 on the episode Noah's Ark. This time, Bob, and Larry (who plays his sousaphone) are the only characters present to perform the song, respectively, and instead of showing a clip montage during the song, the camera pans over several photos representing previous episodes, while the other singers join in.

Starting with The Best Christmas Gift in 2019, Larry officially joins the rest of the veggies (without Laura and Mr. Nezzer) in singing the song while Bruce conducts Khalil in playing the instruments.
