When Archibald Asparagus takes over VeggieTales, he does this episode in a classy way. The "Silly Song with Larry" involves takes place in the thirties, with Larry trying to protect his top hat from being squashed, and singing in Sinatra-like tunes. The episode's entire story is supposedly a lost Gilbert and Sullivan musical, which Archibald learns at the end was just a prank script. It involves a friendly young viking who continually leaves the ship with some money and returns with an empty bag. When two other vikings are sent to find out what's going on, they learn he is returning what they stole to the monks. But should they tell their superior, if it'll get Lyle executed?
Bob the Tomato and Larry the Cucumber appear as Cavis Appythart and Millward Phelps, respectively--two jingle writers based loosely on Gilbert and Sullivan. The setting is 1880s London, and they've written a musical called "The Princess and the Plumber", which they plan to open on Christmas Eve. Cavis thinks the production will "teach London how to love". But children at nearby St. Bart's Church are planning a nativity play for the same evening, and they plan to feature the Star of Christmas, a religious artifact unseen by the public for decades. The London Post Gazette writes a front-page story about the nativity play and the Star, and Cavis and Millward hatch a plan to make their musical better than the children's play. In the end, they learn about the true meaning of Christmas.
What is Auto-tainment?!? Frankly, we don't know. But Larry is pretty sure it involves an automated set from the future, singing robotic children and some of your favorite veggies performing bizarre renditions of classic songs like "Zaccheus," "Hole in the Bottom of the Sea" and Gilbert & Sullivan's "Modern Major General." Bob and Larry learn that God still loves them even when the future doesn't work out quite the way they had hoped.
Join Little Joe (played by Larry the Cucumber) and his rootin' tootin' French pea brothers on an adventure that will take them from an abandoned mineshaft all the way to Dodge Ball City -- with Little Joe's faith being tested every step of the way!
Continuing where _Star of Christmas, The (2002)_ left off, this story follows Millward (Larry the Cucumber) and Cavis (Bob the Tomato) into Mr. Nezzer's Easter egg factory. In a loose adaptation of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol," Mr. Nezzer learns from a couple of visitors that Easter means more than plastic eggs and chocolate bunnies. The character Hope, voiced by Rebecca St. James, presents the story of Christ's death and resurrection in a song accompanied by a series of stained glass windows portraying the events. Written by Jonathan A. Cullum A retelling of Dickens' 'A Christmas Carol', adapted to Easter, and using Veggie Tales "actors", humor, and music. The story framework is a sequel to The Star of Christmas (2002) (V). When Mr. Nezzer tries to knock St. Bart's church down to make way for his new amusement park, Easter Land, he is visited by a vision of the late Granny Nezzer. She tells him to expect a visitor. The visitor, a small angel named Hope, shows him the past, present, and future of Nezzer's Easter, helping him see the error of his ways.
After returning home from what was supposed to be a Danish-immersion camp, Larry the Cucumber meets up with Bob the Tomato for a series of sketches dealing with self-esteem, along with a Silly Song segment. In the first, "The Strange Case of Dr. Jiggle and Mr. Sly," Scooter the Carrot and Larry investigate the appearances of a flashy, disco-dancing gourd in the dark streets of London. Then Larry and a female friend team up for the Silly Song "Sport Utility Vehicle," which pokes fun at preppy SUV owners who dream of using their rugged vehicles for more than just trips to the donut shop. After the song, the title segment follows (in Dr. Seuss-style rhyming verse) the morality tale of a winged creature called a Snoodle, who learns his true self-worth during a mountaintop journey. As a special bonus, the similarly-Seussian "The Story of Flibber-o-loo," from _VeggieTales: Are You My Neighbor (1999) (V)_ , ends the video
When Larry goes out of town during production to help some needy kids, he runs into trouble. Frustrated, he calls Bob to say that he's giving up and coming home. Bob and "Lutfi" (a small cucumber sock puppet performed by Khalil the caterpillar) show a series of skits to help Larry learn the value of perseverence.

Unlike earlier LarryBoy videos that dealt with lying and gossip, this episode focuses on a more ambiguous problem: while the things that tempt us are not necessarily evil themselves, allowing them to dominate our lives can be problematic and disruptive. The Bad Apple is a reference to the widely-held speculation that the forbidden fruit which Adam and Eve were tempted to eat in Genesis 3 was the apple. While all the LarryBoy episodes have always drawn on elements of the Batman series, this one is a more overt parody than the others. Some elements, sound effects, and images have been borrowed from the source nearly intact.

Bob the Tomato is surprised to find Larry the Cucumber in a book club with Mr. Lunt, Archibald Asparagus and Jerry Gourd. They're reading "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" by Mark Twain. Well, not the book itself. Bob is dismayed to find they're all just reading notes about the book. Even that was a waste of time, Mr. Lunt decides, when it turns out the dramatized story of the day is "Huckleberry Larry and Tomato Sawyer." The story proves to be a very veggie version of the classic tale. Larry plays Huckleberry Larry, who wants to build a turkey jerky theme park. Bob is Tomato Sawyer who dreams anachronistically of a career in income tax preparation. Big Jim is a sweet-natured but intimidatingly large yellow gourd on the lam. Clark Wayne is the narrator, looking simultaneously like Mark Twain and Col. Sanders. The moral of the story comes from James 4:17: "If you know what is right to do, but you do not do it, you sin."
