VeggieTales (NBC TV Version)


The TV intro to VeggieTales.

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.

So I thought I'd let y'all know, this show actually airs on two channels where I am -- every Sunday morning on Cozi TV, and twice on Saturday mornings on TBN (Trinity Broadcasting Network). Thank goodness I live in an area where Christian programming is really easy to find. And since I have a proper TV tuner for my PC and everything, it shouldn't be troubling to get the whole series saved to my computer. I've already got The Babysitter in Denile/Flibber-o-Loo, but in the coming weeks I'll tell you what I end up with.

And it looks like TBN shows the episodes in their original home video format, unedited. So, I'm gonna have to settle for once-a-week Cozi TV recordings. Ah well, so long they keep the show running (which I hope they do), I should eventually end up with all the episodes. There's 23 it looks like, so this is gonna take a solid six months to do or so. No wonder this version is so rare.
