Trivia

EASTER EGG: From the main menu, select "Features", then go left. You will see a large Sheriff's star. Press Enter to see a rare trailer for this film. The trailer was never distributed because it was deemed "too dark" for kids (it's more like a Batman (1989) style movie trailer). The trailer is introduced by Kurt Heinecke, discussing the custom score he wrote for the trailer. See more »

Goofs

When the giant Rumor Weed first appears in the center of town, her lipstick color is missing. It returns in the following shot. See more »

Quotes

Larry the Cucumber: I - I'm flying under the ground!
Archibald: Well, actually, you're boring.
Larry the Cucumber: Gee, Alfred, I know I'm not the wittiest of cucumbers, but I...
Archibald: No, no, no, not that kind of boring. It's like drilling. It's a boring machine.

Great Veggie Tales Short Film...
22 November 2002 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

Spoofing Batman, Larry Boy and the Rumor Weed delivers the laughs we've come to expect from those limbless vegetables. The thing I found odd was this was the first Veggie Tales to not feature Bob the Tomato...doesn't matter, Larry's everyone's favorite, right?

Remember that old cereal motto, "Kid Friendly, Mother Approved?" Same with Veggie Tales-"Kid Friendly, Adult enthused!"

John "Larry Boy" Ulmer
