VeggieTales (NBC TV Version)
In 2006, VeggieTales was aired on NBC's former children's programming block, Qubo (which is now it's own full-fledged TV channel). Though similar to the home video series, these episodes featured a brand new theme song along with bridging segments taking place at Bob's house. But what Phil Vischer didn't know was that NBC had a rule that its programs could not advocate any religous point of view. Phil Vischer said that if he knew that NBC had a restriction against religous programs, he wouldn't have gave them the rights. Strangely, retellings of bible stories still aired. And with the exception of the theme song, none of these NBC episodes have surfaced on the internet. It is likely due to the fact that the stories of every episode were already available on DVD which gave people little reason to record the episodes (outside of the bridging beginning and end segments and some edits for either religious reasons or time). Some NBC episodes are on Youtube in Spanish.
