The enormously popular VeggieTales series of shows and movies about computer-animated garden vegetables that learn about Bible stories and Sunday-school lessons also spawned a series of albums, ranging from VeggieTales: Veggie Tunes to VeggieTales: On the Road with Bob & Larry. Part of a family media company called Big Idea, VeggieTales was the brainchild of Phil Vischer, who wanted to create family entertainment with a set of strong moral values. He began Big Idea and VeggieTales in 1993, working with friends and art-school grads until the first VeggieTales episode, Where's God When I'm S-Scared?, was completed just before Christmas that year. By 1995, 130,000 VeggieTales videos were sold; a year later, over 750,000 had been purchased. By 2001, more than 20 million copies of VeggieTales videos had been sold. The VeggieTales albums earned similar success. ~ Heather PharesPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
