* CreatorBacklash: In an interview conducted with ''World'' Magazine in 2011, Phil Vischer, who no longer has any control of ''Veggie Tales'' or of ''Big Idea'', said that he now considers the series something of a disappointment due to him using it just to teach basic morals rather than specific Christian beliefs (something he decided to rectify in his new series, ''Jelly Telly'', which he produces through his new company, ''Jellyfish L.L.C.'').
** Though a podcast Phil posted (which no longer exists) says that he still likes working with the show, and knows that it's in good hands with Doug [=TenNapel=].
* CrossDressingVoices: Junior is voiced by Lisa Vischer, Phil Vischer's wife.
* FakeBrit: Phil Vischer, Iowa-native and cofounder of Big Idea, does the voice for Archibald Asparagus, Scallion 1, and the [[VocalEvolution increasingly-similar-sounding]] "Silly Songs" narrator.
* EditedForSyndication: When the show aired on qubo, any religious references were cut out. For example, in "Dr. Jiggle and Mr. Slide", "You're special just the way God made ya!" was cut to "You're special!" Sometimes, scenes that weren't religious at all were cut for time constraints. For instance, the line in "Larry-Boy! And the Fib From Outer Space" where LarryBoy says that he is tired, hungry, and he has to go to the bathroom was cut for an odd reason, probably to allow more commercials to run.
* NoBudget: A running visual gag in the early episodes is that the veggies are throwing the show together with whatever resources they have available. Many of the sets are clearly painted cardboard sitting on the countertop.
* TheOtherDarrin: Mom Asparagus has been voiced by at least three different people. Laura and Annie and some other minor characters have also had different voices over the years.
* RealLifeRelative: Done this very much since the show's run. Junior Asparagus is voiced Phil's wife, Lisa.
** Annie was originally voiced by Phil and Mike's daughters Shelby and Ally. She is currently voiced by Brian Roberts' daughter, Maggie.
* RecycledScript: '''Twas the Night Before Easter'' has the same plot as ''The Star of Christmas''. Protagonist wants to teach the city to love through theater, senses competition, tries to keep making the show more spectacular, gets desperate, and does something wrong. Then their plans all go awry when [[spoiler: the theater burns down.]] Protagonist learns a lesson.
* TalkingToHimself: Creators Phil Vischer and Mike Nawrocki voice most of the main cast and any minor characters who [[ThoseTwoGuys occur in pairs]].
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** Larry-Boy was originally planned to be the sidekick of [[{{Franchise/Batman}} Bat-Bob]].
** The whole concept was originally going to be centered around a cast of candy bars, but Phil Vischer saw his wife's point after hearing it: "You know, parents will be mad if you make their kids fall in love with candy bars."
