VeggieTales (partially lost NBC TV version of CGI animated series; 2006)


VeggieTales (NBC version)
Title card.
Title card.
Status Partially Lost

In 2006, VeggieTales was aired on NBC's former children's programming block, Qubo (which is now its 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. In addition, many of the episodes saw edits to fit 22-minutes, some minor (like the "Larry-Boy" episodes taking out title cards, and shortening scenes), others very major (like "The Toy That Saved Christmas", where the entire ending climax was cut). But what Phil Vischer didn't know was that NBC had a rule that its programs could not advocate any religious point of view. Phil Vischer said that if he knew that NBC had a restriction against religious programs, he wouldn't have gave them the rights. Strangely, retellings of bible stories still aired.

This version of the series has never been officially released on home video of any kind. Over the last few years, upon attention being gained of the series being lost, the show has popped up in syndication on some local networks, and most of the episodes have been found, including some that went unaired on NBC.

# Episode Title Status
1 The Ballad of Little Joe Found
2 Rack, Shack and Benny Found
3 Larry-Boy! And The Fib From Outer Space Found
4 Esther, The Girl Who Became Queen Found

Rumored

One segment of the direct-to-DVD release "God Made You Special", called Bob's Vacation, is rumored to have been made into a TV episode as the Season 2 premiere, as some websites list it before "The Ballad of Little Joe". However there is no other proof of its existence as a TV episode, and the airdate listed is actually the release date of the home video, as are other home video-only releases included on such lists. Further disproving this theory, Big Idea's website would tell what episodes air that coming weekend on its homepage, and an archived version of it the day before the supposed airdate shows a rerun of "Dr. Jiggle and Mr. Sly". Also because there's no way to make a 10 minute episode into a 22.

Updates

UPDATES 6/6/14-3/30/15: The NBC-exclusive scenes for various episodes were uploaded by YouTuber "VeggieTalesVHS". at different points between the two mentioned dates.

UPDATE 3/5/2016: This version of the show is now airing in syndication. One station that airs it as of March 5, 2016 is WMBC.

UPDATE 4/16/16-8/21/17: WMBC and Cozi TV airings of almost every episode have been compiled and uploaded by Dailymotion user Yumi Fujiwara.

UPDATE 9/1/17: A 2007 Qubo airing of "Sheerluck Holmes and the Golden Ruler" has been uploaded by VeggieTalesVHS on Dailymotion, with the NBC exclusive scenes being uploaded to his YouTube channel. "Minnesota Cuke and the Search for Samson's Hairbrush" is now the only episode lost in its entirety.

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.

VeggieTalesVHS uploaded Sheerluck Holmes and the Golden Ruler on Dailymotion. And guess what. The episode was recorded ON QUBO and not COZI or WMBC. It just feels great to see a recording of VeggieTales airing on Qubo since the last time I've seen it on there was like late 2009.

About 5 seconds worth of footage is missing from the upload. The stuff that's missing during the Sheerluck segment itself can be found on the DVD version, and what's missing from the credits can be seen on the Spanish dub. All that's left is Bob's line "I read the script", which, while technically making it Partially Found, I don't really think it's enough that the official label on here can't be Found.

I think the Big Idea page wasn't updated or something. I dont think Dr. Jiggle and Mr. Sly and Leggo My Ego was shown 2 Saturdays in a row. (I went on July 28, 2007 and went on August 9, 2007). But maybe it doesn't exist because they can't turn a 10 minute episode into a 22 minute episode. They hardly got Gourds Must Be Crazy up to 22 minutes. And I don't think Qubo would air a fairly new video that came out a few months ago.
