1st Bumper

(1999)

Bumper: On a yellow background, we see Larry the Cucumber staring at us and smiling upside-down. Next to him is the blue text "Please stay tuned for more trailers after the show" in what appears to be Big Idea's version of the Times New Roman font.


FX/SFX: Just the simple fade-in and fade-out.


Music/Sounds: None.


Availability: Rare for the most part, but it was only seen on the 1999 Lyrick Studios releases of the VeggieTales episodes Very Silly Songs! and Josh & The Big Wall!. Some other VeggieTales tapes use [If they had any] the Lyrick Studios bumper instead. This was only used for a year, before being replaced by the next bumpers described below.


Scare Factor: None to minimal. It can surprise you if you're not expecting it. Larry the cucumber's stare can also scare some, as well as the eerie silence, but this is a tame bumper otherwise.



2nd Bumper

(2001-2005)




Bumper: On a plain white background, we see the red text "Stay tuned for more after the show." in what appears to be a bolded Arial Narrow.


Variants: Depending on the variant:

On the 2001 Word, Inc. and Lyrick Studios VHS releases of VeggieTales: Lyle the Kindly Viking, a similar bumper is seen in a different font on a lavender background with white text saying "STAY TUNED AFTER THE SHOW FOR MORE EXCITING NEWS!". A different announcer says "Stay tuned after the show for more exciting news from Big Idea!". If you look real closely, you can see lines and symbols, such as boomerangs on the background.

Another version of the variant listed above is on the 2001 VHS release of 3-2-1 Penguins: The Amazing Carnival of Complaining with a blue background with blurred bubbles which has the white text saying "STAY TUNED AFTER THE SHOW" in the font of the lavender bumper. The announcer is the same one as the above version, but slightly sounds like the 1989 Disney Feature Presentation Announcer Grant Goodeve (due to him saying it more quietly, and very fast), saying "Stay tuned after the video for a behind-the-scenes look at Big Idea's new movie, Jonah".

A rare variant of the original variant of this has the same font as the above variants, one tape that uses this is the 2002 VHS release of VeggieTales: The Star of Christmas.

A variant exists where the background is a blurred-up Las Vegas pattern facing to the left at a 45 degree angle. The white lights on the background are seen moving from the upper-left corner to the bottom-right corner of the screen. In front of the Las Vegas pattern, on the center of the screen. is the white text "Stay Tuned for more after our Feature Presentation!".

A variant of the Las Vegas variant exists where the white text says "Stay tuned for a special animated short right after our Feature Presentation!". The Big Idea Productions announcer is replaced with Larry the Cucumber, in which Larry is heard saying the text. The music is quieter. Also, the font of the text is slightly smaller and slightly off-center. This was only seen on the 2003 VHS release of VeggieTales: The Wonderful World of Autotainment.

On the 2003 VHS release of Jonah: A VeggieTales Movie, a blue ocean background is used. A yellow television is seen showing footage of some bloopers from the film at the bottom right corner of the screen. Bordering the television is the white text "Stay Tuned for Outtakes After the Feature". As we hear the audio of the bloopers and see them playing, the announcer says "Stay tuned for some never-before seen outtakes and more after our feature".

A variant of the original version exists when the font of text is slightly smaller and slightly off-center at the top of the screen. Below it, a small square with some footage from "Behind The Scenes of: Jonah: VeggieTales Movie" fade in and fade out as we see them playing. This was only seen on the 2002 VHS release of VeggieTales: Jonah: Sing Along Songs and More!.

A second and last variant of the Las Vegas variant exists where the white text says "Stay Tuned after our Main Presentation for a Special Bonus Feature!". The same Big Idea Productions announcer says that text, too. This was only seen on the 2004 VHS release of VeggieTales: A Snoodle's Tale.

A second, third and last variant of the Las Vegas variant exists where the white text says "Stay Tuned for an exciting Behind the scenes special after our Feature Presentation!". The same Big Idea Productions announcer says that text, too. The music is quieter. Also, the font of the text is slightly smaller and slightly off-center like the second variant of the Las Vegas variant. This was only seen on the 2003 reprint of VeggieTales: Madame Blueberry and VeggieTales: King George And The Ducky.

A second, third, forth and last variant of the Las Vegas variant exists where the text says "Stay Tuned for "The Star of Christmas" in yellow instead of white. The Big Idea Productions announcer says "Stay Tuned After "The Toy That Saved Christmas" for the second half of our Holiday Double Feature "The Star of Christmas". Plus! More fun previews". But it doesn't contain the first fourteen notes of the Erie Canal song from VeggieTales: The Wonderful World of Autotainment. This was only seen on the 2004 VHS release of VeggieTales: Holiday Double Feature.

FX/SFX: Just the simple fade-in and fade-out.


Music/Sounds: Simply a male Big Idea Productions announcer saying the text. On the Las Vegas variant, it's the first fourteen notes of the Erie Canal song from VeggieTales: The Wonderful World of Autotainment, with the male Big Idea Productions announcer saying the text, except for the word "Presentation".


Availability: Common. The variants are only seen on Distinct tapes, but the normal version is on some VeggieTales and Larry-Boy! The Cartoon Adventures tapes. The Las Vegas variant is rare, as it is seen on VeggieTales releases from 2003-2005 and the 2003 reprint of VeggieTales: Madame Blueberry and VeggieTales: King George And The Ducky.


Scare Factor: None to low. The sudden announcer and rather uncanny silence can scare a few, and the Las Vegas variants' music may startle some, but this is rather tame.
