|The League of Incredible Vegetables|
October 16, 2012
The League of Incredible Vegetables is the 45th episode of VeggieTales and the fourth Larry-Boy episode.
Bob and Larry get a video call from Alfred that someone emailed Larry-Boy that he's afraid of everything, including snakes, and needs help to overcome his fear.
The League battle Flurry only to find out he has made a fake to disorient them. Then, LarryBoy gets frozen and a recall to the LarryCave is made. Alfred tells Junior that they should not trust in their supersuits and instead trust in God.
Thingmabob, S-Cape and Vogue head to "This Little Piggy" Grocery where Dr. Flurry has taken as a hideout, but as a surprise counter he freezes them.
After a last stand battle between Ricochet and Flurry, he throws a snowball at the Fear-Dar thus destroying the Refrigerator and freeing everyone. Alfred claims Ricochet as an official member of the League of Incredible Vegetables.
