- 1 Season
VeggieTales is an animated series created by Big Idea Productions aimed at teaching children moral lessons through hilarious stories featuring anthropomorphic fruits and vegetables. One of the most iconic episodes of the show is "Josh and the Big Wall", which tells the story of Joshua and the battle of Jericho. The episode begins with Bob the Tomato and Larry the Cucumber hosting a talk show in their kitchen studio. They introduce the story of Joshua and the Israelites, who have been wandering through the desert for forty years after escaping Egypt. The VeggieTales version of the story takes place in a Middle Eastern market, where Larry plays the role of Joshua and Bob is his sidekick, a parsnip named Louie. The vegetable cast learns that the city of Jericho has a big wall surrounding it that is impossible to breach. However, God gives Joshua a plan to march around the city for six days, then on the seventh day, to blow horns and shout at the wall until it falls down. The VeggieTales version of the plan involves Larry and Louie leading a parade of vegetables around the wall, which confuses and irritates the Jericho army. Along the way, Larry meets a cute little pickle named Junior Asparagus who has joined the Israelites on their journey. Junior is nervous about the battle and asks Larry what will happen if they fail. In a memorable musical number, Larry sings "Keep Walking", encouraging Junior and the other veggies to trust in God's plan and keep walking forward. The parade continues for six days, and despite the taunts and insults of the Jericho soldiers, Larry and the other Israelites keep walking. On the seventh day, they blow their horns and shout, and the wall falls down, allowing them to capture the city without a fight. The episode ends with Larry and Junior singing "The Promised Land", a catchy song about God's faithfulness to His people. "Josh and the Big Wall" is a classic VeggieTales episode that teaches children about faith, obedience, and the power of trusting in God's plan. The animation is colorful and engaging, with wacky humor that will make kids laugh out loud. The music is catchy and memorable, with lyrics that reinforce the lessons of the story. Overall, it's a fun and entertaining way for kids to learn about the Bible and the values that it teaches.
