Storyline

Trivia

Phil Vischer envisioned this as one of the last (if not _the_ last) half-hour VeggieTales videos, as he pushed the company towards feature-film production. As a result, everything in this video pushed the envelope far beyond what any previous video had done - from the high-end background paintings, to the 85-voice mens' choir and string section soundtrack. Unfortunately, the first feature film (Jonah: A VeggieTales Movie (2002)) failed to return its significant investment and bankrupted the company, which was bought in 2003 and continues to produce the half-hour format shows.

This clever video shows you how rumors can spread like a weed and that they can only be fixed by truth; packed full of laughs!
26 June 2001 | by See all my reviews

Junior Asparagus and Laura Carrot learn how easily rumors can be started when they tell one about Alfred. Before they know it, their little story is spreading all over Bumblyburg like a weed! Only Larry-Boy can save the day, he hopes. This video, along with the rest in the VeggieTales series, is full of laughs for kids, but at the same time manages to pack much humor that adults will connect with as well. You will never grow tired of this video!
