VeggieTales is an American-English series of English language children's computer animated films featuring anthropomorphic vegetables. Developed by Big Idea Productions, the films convey moral themes based on Christianity, spliced with satirical references to pop culture.
VeggieTales was created by Phil Vischer and Mike Nawrocki, who also provide many of the voices. Originally released in direct-to-video format, the series debuted on December 21, 1993. From September 9, 2006 to September 5, 2009, VeggieTales was featured on the children's programming block called qubo on NBC. As of 2009, the TV show is shown on Gospel Music Channel. The series has still been releasing new episodes on DVD while the television show airs. VeggieTales has also published books, music CDs and branded items such as toys, clothing, and garden seeds for vegetables and flowers (e.g., daisies, fern, tulips, pumpkins, squash, peas, scallions, sunflowers, etc.).
