VeggieTown was a series of Vacation Bible School (VBS) kits made by BigIdea, based on the popular children's series VeggieTales. This VBS taught kids about forgiveness, kindness, and sharing, among others. With these VBS kits, came a video about helping kids talk, a collection of edited VeggieTales videos, and a series of 10 animated greetings from Bob the Tomato and Larry the Cucumber. The popularity of this VBS led to multiple other VBS kits throughout 2000 and 2001, such as VeggieTown Values: On the Job, VeggieTown Values: For the Family, and Jonah: an Overboard Adventure.

Availability

Many of the animated greetings have been uploaded to YouTube by OneAndOnlyTubaCelloGuy, but his channel was taken down shortly after. Luckily, mirrors of the greetings have been uploaded. Half of the visuals to the 2000 animated greetings are lost. However, the audio has been found. The latter 5 greetings from 2000 were only available via purchase through a free e-mailing card (now defunct) which you can sign and then send it off so you can acquire a VHS tape with all 10 greeting inserts. The 2001 greetings only resurfaced in audio form, and considering the fact that the greetings only came on a CD, it is currently unknown whether these were animated or not. The Helping Kids Talk video was uploaded to YouTube in 2015, but was taken down shortly after but eventually re-uploaded on July 31st, 2018. Not much is known about the other videos, and it is unknown if they will ever surface the internet.

On January 23rd, 2019, YouTuber VHSDVDGrinder 2001 uploaded a low-quality camera recording of the latter half of the 2000 animated greetings, which was later re-uploaded as a high-quality VHS rip by NebbaKNezzafan228.

On September 4th, 2019, Discord user Pychosław98 ripped the entire Welcome to Jonah: an Overboard Adventure VHS, which was then uploaded on YouTube by user Mr. Lunch.

On November 6, 2019, BradenHall TheMaster ripped the 2001 Welcome to VeggieTown VHS and uploaded it to archive.org, which was mirrored onto YouTube by Mr. Lunch 2 days later on November 8.
