VeggieTales: Josh and the Big Wall

[rate 4]

From the Cover:

Josh and the Big Wall contains one hilarious, fully computer-animated story that teaches children a biblical perspective on obedience.

Oh, boy!  After forty years of wandering in the desert, the children of Israel finally get to go to the Promised Land!  One one little thing they’ve overlooked, though… Jericho!  Yep.  Surrounded by huge walls and bristling with really annoying peas, no one gets to the Promised Land without going through Jericho first!

But how?  Joshua has God’s directions, but they sound kind of well, weird.  To make matters worse, some of the veggies are cooking up a plot of their own!  In the end, they have to decide whether it’s better to do things their way or God’s way!

Kids of all ages will learn a lesson about obedience in this hilarious retelling of the classic Bible story– Josh and the Big Wall!


Larry’s done a lot of work on the last show, and Bob is letting him take a rest.  So, Junior decides to help out, and, in something that only happens in this VeggieTales episode, Bob and Junior close their eyes and are whisked back in time to the time of Moses.

Moses and Caanan

Bob goes on to explain that the Israelites were sent to wander in the wilderness for forty years because they didn’t trust God to go in at first, but it’s finally time.

Josh and the Big Wall

Larry the Cucumber plays the part of Josh, and everything’s going well until they run into Jericho.  Jericho has a big wall, and the french peas on top of that wall are heckling them.

Some in Josh’s group want to build a giant missile while others want to go back to Egypt.  Meanwhile, Josh goes off to talk with God and Archibald shows up as the Angel of the Lord telling him to walk around the wall.

The Song of the Cebu

Larry does a silly song for Jerry, Jimmy and Junior while Archibald interrupts and Larry runs out of slides.

Back to Josh and the Big Wall

The people decide to give God’s way a try, even though the peas are dumping slushies on their heads.  The last day, a band playing “When the Saints Go Marching In” ends up playing the blast, the walls fall, and the peas are defeated.


Bob explains that there were no missiles, and no slushies (the only time in VeggieTales movies where there’s any note to what VeggieTales added to the story and the only time they name a book of the Bible).  Larry shows up in pajamas just as the show is closing.
