Shout Out: VeggieTales
In addition to almost every non-Bible story a being straight-up parody or pastiche of some book or movie, we have the following:
- At the end of A Snoodle's Tale (which is told in the style of Dr. Seuss), Larry comments that "there was something about that story that made me want to eat green ham."
- Also, some of the characters' voices are based on movie characters. For example, Mr. Nezzer's is based on Oogie Boogie (his Dark Reprise of "The Bunny Song" is pretty much a Suspiciously Similar Song of Oogie Boogie's theme) and Mr. Lunt's is based on Greasy the Toon Patrol weasel.
- Pistachio begins with the kitchen getting a re-model from Extreme Re-Do: Crying Edition, right down to the most on-the-nose Ty Pennington parody ever.
- In Pistachio, Khalil, who is playing the Cricket, says "I'm no fool, no-sirree!" a line from the educational films Disney produced in the '60s and '70s starring Jiminy Cricket.
- From The Ballad Of Little Joe, made into a very out-of-place Shout-Out simply because of the accent Larry says it in:
Larry/Little Joe: "You people tried to steal from me, and we don't take kindly to stealing around these here parts"
- Another "The Ballad of Little Joe'' example:
Larry/Little Joe: "Desperado! You'd better come to your senses!"
- And of course the title character is a reference to Bonanza.
- In It's A Meaningful Life, Larry and Petunia's characters are named Stewart and Donna, after the actors who played the characters they're parodying in It's A Wonderful Life.
- Another It's A Wonderful Life reference in "The Star Of Christmas": Bob as Cavis states "I will teach all of London how to love!"
- In The Star Of Christmas, Cavis and Millward put on a play entitled The Princess And The Plumber.
- And the play apparently ended with said plumber saving the princess from a monkey king.
- The Englishman Who Went Up A Hill and Came Down With All the Bananas
- "Sumo of the Opera" has numerous ones to Rocky, such as the main character being named "the Italian Scallion" and his attempt to at least tie with the current heavy-weight champion.
- Larry-Boy and the Bad Apple has a scene parodying the first Charlie and the Chocolate Factory movie: when Bad Apple introduces Larry-Boy to his Lotus-Eater Machine (a museum of chocolate), she wears a purple hat like Wonka's, and does a crazy rant like Wonka does during the boat's Disney Acid Sequence.
- During the Silly Song "Schoolhouse Polka" (which is itself a reference), when asked to sing about pronouns, Larry sings:
- The climax of The Toy Who Saved Christmas is an extended shout-out to the end of Batman Forever.
- Moe and the Big Exit has this song from The Boyz In The Sink: A Mess Down in Egypt
- In Veggies in Space: The Fennel Frontier, the ship (from Space Fleet) is called the ''USS Applepies'' and run by Captain Cuke and Mr. Spork, the opening is run across the screen like in Star Wars, and an asparagus in a blue police box calls himself Doctor Who and says he has to be off to the nineteenth century.
- References quite a bit more. Undeniably Reference Overdosed.
