Little Things Matter

When Being Good Means Giving Up is the seventh episode of The VeggieTales Show, which teaches a lesson about the importance of being good.

Plot

Larry is ready to give up on being "good" when an act of goodness makes him miss out on new collectible toy he really wants. Lunt tries and fails to solve Larry's problem with a new product, "Mr. Lunt's Robot Call," then Pa Grape steps in and tells a Western version of the parable of the Foolish Rich Man from Luke 12. In the end Bob and Larry learn that doing things God's way might lead to some bad days, but ultimately leads to the happy ending we all REALLY want.

Trivia

  • There were a few differences between pre-production and the final product:
    • Jean-Claude was going to be called the Angel of Death.
      • Similarly, Jean-Claude was explicitly going to say Larry would die in the incident with the goat and the pasta-maker.
    • At the end, Bob was going to say, “I just noticed that a goat chewed on the wires of your pasta-maker! If you’d used it, there could’ve been a terrible accident!”
  • This is the first episode for a few things:
    • The first episode to have Bob play a part in the main story.
    • The first episode to have a unique twist on a Bible story.
    • The first episode to not end with all the veggies saying goodbye.
    • The first episode to not feature Stephanie Southerland as a credited voice actress.
