Have we got a show for you!
~ Bob the Tomato during the Veggietales intro.

Robert "Bob" the Tomato is the main protagonist of the VeggieTales franchise. He is also one of the mascots of Big Idea. He is the best friend of Larry the Cucumber and a good friend to Junior Asparagus.

He is voiced by the series' creator, Phil Vischer.

Appearance

Bob is a small, round tomato with black eyes. He has a green stem and green leaves growing from the top of his head.

In VeggieTales in the House and VeggieTales in the City, along with the other characters, Bob was redesigned, where he gained eyebrows and blue eyes.

In the VeggieTales Show, as the characters use their classic designs from the original VeggieTales, Bob reverted back to his classic appearance.

Biography

Jonah: A VeggieTales Movie

Bob appears as one of the major characters in the first feature film of VeggieTales. He and Mike Asparagus were driving the Veggie children to a concert so that they could see the famous singer Twippo. Bob became frustrated at Mike for singing songs with the Veggie children, even though he was supposed to help him with the map. When Laura Carrot starts teasing Junior Asparagus about her ticket she won from a Twippo contest, Mike tries to stop her, but accidentally hits Bob in the head with his guitar. Bob loses control of the van and Laura loses her ticket. Soon, a family of porcupines shoot out two of the van's tires, and the van crashes at the bottom of a hill.

Bob makes sure no one was injured, before he gets shot by one of the baby porcupines. Then, he and the other Veggies spot a seafood restaurant. Bob was furious with Mike, blaming him for the crash. Bob then goes to find a telephone to call for a tow truck.

After Bob calls for the tow truck, he tells Junior that even though he liked Mike, he would never want Mike to be his copilot again, before he meets the Pirates Who Don't Do Anything. The Pirates tell Bob they were telling a story and that he should listen as well.

After the Pirates finish their story, Bob and the Veggies were surprised that Jonah had such an anticlimactic ending. Pa Grape then tells Bob to forgive Mike for the crash. Bob initially refuses, but he learned that everyone deserved a second chance, so he forgave Mike for the crash. Just then, Twippo appears in the seafood restaurant, much to the Veggies' surprise. Bob explains what happened to them during their trip to the concert, and Twippo tells the Veggies that he will take them in his bus. But before that, Twippo sang a song about Jonah. The Veggies went to cheer Twippo, before they are stopped by the tow truck driver, who is none other than Khalil.

Personality

Bob is a friendly but often stressed tomato. He acts as the straight man of the hosts. He is always willing to teach children how to be kind. He can easily be annoyed, especially by his best friend Larry the Cucumber, and is irritated if he is not in control. In addition to this he becomes unamused when his show is not going according to his plan. Despite that, though, he is still a lovable and pleasant tomato.
