VeggieTales is a widely popular children's series of animated movies that focuses on teaching morals and biblical values. In 1999, VeggieTales came out with a new movie called LarryBoy and the Rumor Weed. This delightful film follows the story of Larry the Cucumber, who is also a super-hero in disguise called LarryBoy, as he battles against the powerful Rumor Weed.

The movie opens with the introduction of a small town called Bumblyburg. This peaceful town is thrown into chaos when a mysterious plant starts spreading around and whispering rumors that creates tension and animosity among the people. The Rumor Weed is a sentient, malicious plant that grows stronger with each rumor it spreads. As it gets more and more powerful, the town becomes more and more divided.

LarryBoy, with the help of his trusty butler, Alfred, quickly realizes that the only way to defeat the Rumor Weed is to stop the rumors from spreading. They set out on a mission to find the source of the weeds and put an end to their spreading. Along the way, they meet several interesting plants, including a confidential informant who happens to be a tomato, a wise tulip, and a humorous celery.

The Rumor Weed is not an ordinary enemy. It has the ability to control and influence others with its words, and it uses its power to convince various townsfolk to spread false tales. Among the Rumor Weed's victims is Junior Asparagus, who innocently repeats a rumor about Larryboy after overhearing a conversation. Junior’s parents and the librarian also become a part of the rumor mill, which causes chaos.

As LarryBoy works to fight the rumors and the Rumor Weed, he discovers that the source of the weed is an old factory. Along with Alfred, they venture to the factory and find a strange machine that is generating the Rumor Weed. Despite the danger, LarryBoy takes a leap of faith and destroys the machine, which consequently destroys the Rumor Weed.

In its classic style, the movie delivers an uplifting message to the audience, encouraging them to always tell the truth and refrain from spreading rumors. The movie teaches that rumors can cause unnecessary pain, and sometimes they can be flat-out wrong. By being honest and avoiding rumors, we can avoid conflict and be happier.

The cast of the film is captivating, and the animation is top-notch, as seen in all VeggieTales movies. The Rumor Weed is a genuinely terrifying villain, with a vicious laugh and intimidating presence. LarryBoy is a charming character with a unique and interesting superhero suit.

All in all, LarryBoy and the Rumor Weed is a fantastic movie for children and parents alike. Besides providing an engaging story, it is an excellent teaching tool for children who are starting to take notice of the words and actions that adults around them use. It drives home the point that words do matter and that we must use them wisely. The enduring message of the movie is that only by being honest and true to oneself can we win the battle against unhealthy rumormongering.
