Show Synopsis
It’s bedtime for Junior Asparagus– but no matter how hard he tries, he just can’t fall asleep! Between thoughts of the boogie man and Godzilla, crazy nightmares about giant pickles, and imagining shadowy images of his furniture creeping across the room—Junior is wide-awake! No amount of sleep-inducing tactics from his Veggie friends seems to work! But when Junior’s babysitter Suzie reminds him that the Bible tells us to “think about whatever is true, right, pure and lovely,” and that God is bigger than any fear or problem we may have, Junior begins to understand that he is safe under God’s protection—even when he is sleeping! To help Junior think “happy thoughts,” Bob, Larry and the whole gang kick it into high gear with the best silly song show ever! Packed with singing, dancing and a whole lot of fun, everyone learns that God really is “bigger than the boogie man!”

Fan favorites include classic silly songs such as “His Cheeseburger,” “I Love My Lips,” “Oh, Where is My Hairbrush,” “The Water Buffalo Song,” and more, as well as the original, never-before- heard silly song, “My Bear” featured on the brand new VeggieTales: It’s A Meaningful Life DVD coming this fall!
