A classic Bible story from the book of Daniel is brought to life by Big Idea Productions. Rack, Shack, and Benny work in a factory that makes chocolate bunnies, owned by Nebbie K. Nezzer (a la King Nebecanezzer). His obsession with the bunnies leads him to build a giant one. Anyone who doesn't bow down and worship is fed to the furnace, where the "bad bunnies" go. While most employees worship it, Rack, Shack, and Benny cling to their Christian faith. Written by The Extra

Did You Know?


George was based on Old Moses from "The Hudsucker Proxy". See more »


It'd be very wasteful for a chocolate factory to throw all of its misshaped bunnies into a furnace. Chocolate melts around the low thirties Celsius (mid-to-high eighties Fahrenheit), which wouldn't require a furnace at all (let alone a fiery Babylonian-era furnace), and it's very easy to mold.

[from down in the sink]
Larry the Cucumber: So what we have learned applies to our lives today, /and God has a lot to say / in his book.
Bob the Tomato: Larry, you know I feel about that song.
Larry the Cucumber: [singing] Yes, we know that God's word is for everyone. / And now that our song is done, /
[Bob turns on the faucet above Larry]
Larry the Cucumber: we'll take a... *hey*, that's cold!

Crazy Credits

During the Big Idea logo at the end, Bob quips, "I'd like to get out now!" (Future releases omit this line.) See more »

Alternate Versions

In the original VHS release, "The Bunny Song" sung by Mr. Nezzer included lyrics "I don't love my Mom or my Dad" and "I won't go to church and I won't go to school". The song was supposed to be a song written for the bad guy in the story and is a song kids are not supposed to sing, but kids did start singing it because it was so catchy. Big Idea started getting complaints from parents about this, so in newer VHS releases and on DVD releases, it was still a bad song but the lyrics mentioned above were changed too "I don't love my soup or my bread" and "I won't eat no beans and I won't eat tofu".

My Favorite Veggie Tales Show, along with The 1st!
28 May 2018 | by cinephile-27690See all my reviews

I have loved Veggie Tales since birth, and this one is my favorite with Where's God When I'm S-Scared.

It's a Christian show, but even other people love it, and all ages. I'm 19 and I still watch them!

As my title states, this is my favorite! I feel that Big Idea has not topped themselves in the last 23 years!

The episode retells the story of the Firey Furnace found in Daniel 3 of the Bible and teaches you to stand up for your beliefs, even when everyone else is doing the opposite.

There are intense scenes with the fire aspect but it's worth watching if your child isn't easily scared. (And they shouldn't be- God is bigger than the boogieman!-that's from the first show.)

If you love this, and I'm shocked if you don't, then watch every other one! You can thank me by watching them repeatedly!
