Okay, it wasn't in honor of my birthday (which is, in fact, today), but be that as it may, Stephen Colbert mentioned Larry the Cucumber and showed a "mash-up" clip from VeggieTales against one of the veggie worship songs last night on his show. As with most Stephen Colbert shows, this clip has one mildly off-color joke, so it probably isn't appropriate for kids. But the veggie bit is quite funny. And Larry looks good.
You can check it out here.
Happy birthday to me!
Hey! Have a happy birthday, Phil! Though I don’t make a habit of watching Stephen Colbert, that clip was pretty funny. Although I didn’t recognize the episode the clip was from…
Well, that’s… amusing, to say the least. XD
Have a happy birthday, Phil! <3
Although that does explain Buck Denver pulling a Colbert on the mailbag a couple of weeks ago. I wondered about that…
Oh, man! That is awesome. I think it really tickled his fancy too! Barely got on to the next piece of advice! Larry’s brothers “singing” Here I am to Worship is so wrong.
Happy Birthday, Phil!
Happy birthday Phil from the Martin family!! May it be wonderful!!!
By the way, that piece was funny. My son Johnny thought the ninja (Niko) should have been named “Larry The Sea Cucumber” . But then he thought he was too small so he made his own version. I’ll post it on Jellyfish labs.
Happy birthday Phil! What a fun way to celebrate.
I know it was a mash-up but what video was the animation from? I didn’t recognize it either.
Happy birthday, Phil!
That was pretty funny… Happy Birthday Phil!
Happy Birthday, Phil. I want to say thank you again for sharing at Wonder 2009 and I look forward to wisdom, humor and your success. May the Lord of lords bless you on this festive day!
Happy Birthday! I just wanted to say that I was watching an audio commentary
that you and Mike did on Josh and the Big Wall. I love the commentaries.
You guys are too funny!!
Happy Birthday, Phil! That was a pretty funny clip.
Did you know that on this day in history in 1890 Stan Laurel was born and in 1884 the 1st roller coaster in America opened at Coney Island. Just some fun facts for your birthday. ( Of course here on the west coast it is still your birthday)
Hope it was a good one, The Martins
Happy Birthday, Phil! Hip hip hooray!! 😉

Happy Birthday!!! I just wanted to say that I was watching/listening to an audio documentary on Josh and the Big Wall the other night. You guys are soooo funny. People do listen to those documentaries, they are not taped in vain:)
Happy belated Birthday, Phil! And that’s a funny clip. I find it interesting he knows about VeggieTales. And I also don’t recognize the clip…wait, it’s from whatever video had Larry’s family in it (I don’t remember which one, but I remember seeing it before). God Bless You!
The three cucumbers are Larry’s brothers– Steve, Dave, and Bob (I think?) and they’re singing the “What we have learned today” song a capella in a kind of pop sound. I believe they own a hardware store. It’s the same episode in which Bob finds out that Larry’s Dad’s an astronaut.
So has Colbert referenced Larry or the Veggies before? It seems a bit random to me, since I’m not a fan of his show. But hey – you’re right, Phil. Larry, and the family, look great – and a wee bit o’ Veggies is better than none, I always say. So Frohliche Geburtstag to you!
The VeggieTales clip came from Duke and the Great Pie War.
Happy Birthday Phil!
I think it`s from Duke and the Great Pie War.
Happy belated birthday Phil. I hope and pray that you’re doing well.
happy birthday Phil! may God bless u richly and give u many more birthdays!
(so how old are u now? just kidding! )
Not sure whether to say congrats on the veggie clip on Colbert or not. Nice to get national mention but when it’s not related to your film….ummm, not sure.
Anyway, just finished your book. A friend bought my husband a copy and being the avid reader in the family, I read it first. He’s taking it on vacation with him this week.
Thanks for your candor, honesty and history. Very interesting and a great read. I admit I cried at the end (which I hate doing – which is why I don’t go to movies with sad ending – oh, and I cried twice at Star Trek – good grief). Really love the message at the end. It was definitely fun reading up to then and a fantastic finish.
I was soo glad that the book mentioned your website and new company. I’m going to check out more of your website and see what God is doing and how you’ve join him!
Found your blog from your book, “Me, Myself and Bob”. Just finished it.
Loved the book. I laughed and cried….at different parts, or course. Enjoyed the beginning, middle and end. Loved how God pulled all the parts and pieces together to make you who you are.
Loved hearing how you enjoyed animation/film from childhood. Cause I don’t recall learning about my passion until later in life. I enjoyed hearing how God redeemed your life experience. Been there myself. Mostly, I guess I enjoyed your candor, honest, humor and the life changing experience at the end of the book. Fantastic.
I’m also glad your book mentioned your website and new company. I’m looking forward to learning more about how you’re joining God in his work.
Just head you on Focus On the Family today on my way to work. I thank you very much for sharing. I need to hear that today. I am checking the JellyTelly website for my 13 and 16 years old nephew and 15 years niece. May Our heavenly Father continues to lead and inspire you.
I am a music teacher and last year I used a video clip from Veggie Tales and now I can’t find it–the lyric was “listen, oh listen, lend an ear..listen, oh listen, you never know what you might hear”.
Can you tell me what the name of that song is? I think it had the frankenstein character in it.
Laura, I may not be Phil, but I can tell you where that was from. It’s from one of their newest DVDs “Larry Learns To Listen” and you can find it on YouTube.
