VeggieTales is no longer in production


All good things come to an end. That statement seems to ring true for the once popular VeggieTales franchise. Speaking at the 2018 Christian Worldview Film Festival, co-creator Mike Nawrocki confirmed the biblical vegetable series is no longer in production.

Created by Phil Vischer alongside Nawrocki at their company Big Idea Entertainment, VeggieTales began life as a series of Christian faith-based direct-to-video CG-animated releases back in 1993. Through that format, 47 episodes were released with things halting after 2015’s Noah’s Ark. Episodes from that production were later re-edited for television broadcast. This was followed up with the Netflix original series VeggieTales in the House, which ran for 52 episodes between November 2014 and September 2016. A followup to that, VeggieTales in the City, debuted last year. The franchise also inspired the short-lived 2D animated direct-to-video series Larryboy: The Cartoon Adventures, a TV special and two theatrical films, 2002’s Jonah and 2008’s The Pirates Who Don’t Do Anything.

The Netflix productions in the franchise have downplayed the religious aspects in favour of secular morals. While Vischer and Nawrocki remained voice actors in them, their role in the franchise was significantly lessened compared to earlier years.

VeggieTales is currently owned by DreamWorks Animation. Big Idea Entertainment filed for bankruptcy in 2003 and was purchased by Classic Media shortly after. In 2006, Classic Media was purchased by Entertainment Rights. Boomerang Media, a new company from the founders of Classic Media, bought back what they had sold in 2009. In 2012, DreamWorks acquired Classic Media.

Is this really the end of VeggieTales? That’s certainly the case for now. However, Bob, Archibald, and the rest of the gang have been really successful and successful things have a tendency to resurface.
