Qubo/syndication controversy - The VeggieTales episodes airing on NBC/qubo have been edited for broadcast to remove most references to God at the request of NBC's standards and practices department. On the DVDs, each episode ends with "God made you special." and has at least one reference to Qwerty (their computer) that gives a verse relating to the episode and other "God" references throughout show that are removed for airing on NBC.
VeggieTales has a continuous back story that all of the cartoons are actually teleplays, performed by various vegetables and fruit that live together on the same kitchen counter top. Some of these characters have "real names", and take on various roles in the teleplays, although they will also frequently appear as themselves. Most of these "regulars" were established in the very earliest videos.
