Bob the Tomato is a character in VeggieTales, straight-man and the co-host of the VeggieTales show. He hosts the show along with Larry the Cucumber, the opposite co-host. They tell Biblical stories together on a stage-like kitchen counter, along with a computer, Qwerty, who gives them a quote said by one of Jesus's disciples at the end of an episode. Bob sometimes is a little annoyed about Larry when he's goofing off, but soon later ignores it.

He is also annoyed by a song Qwerty plays, What we have Learned, but on the other hand, Larry likes it. Bob is a storyteller, but also stars in many of the performances. He often tries to keep Larry out of trouble and boost his self-esteem.


Bob is a red tomato. He is short and has small green leaves growing out of his head. He also grows a stem. In his acting, he usually only wears a hat, grows facial hair, and sometimes have a small shirt on. He is often confused to have a fever because of his red skin.
