Followed byVeggieTales in the City

VeggieTales in the House is an American CGI computer-animated children's comedy streaming television series developed by Doug TenNapel and produced by Big Idea Entertainment (owned by DreamWorks Classics), and animated by Bardel Entertainment.[2] It takes place outside of VeggieTales, a Christian-themed video and film series, featuring anthropomorphic vegetables.[3] The series was executive produced by TenNapel, creator of Earthworm Jim and Catscratch. The series was released to Netflix on November 26, 2014.[1] The show lasted for three years before ending in 2016.[1] A follow-up series, titled VeggieTales in the City, was released on February 24, 2017, but ended by September 2017.[4][5]

The two creators of the traditional VeggieTales series from 1993 reprise their voices of the characters: Phil Vischer reprises the voices of Bob the Tomato, Archibald Asparagus, Jimmy Gourd, Phillipe Pea, Mr. Lunt, and Pa Grape and Mike Nawrocki reprises the voices of Larry the Cucumber, Jerry Gourd, and Jean-Claude Pea. Other characters on the show (including the rest of the original characters brought over from the original VeggieTales series) are voiced by Tress MacNeille as Petunia Rhubarb, Madame Blueberry, Laura Carrot, and Junior Asparagus, Rob Paulsen, who provides the voice of Ichabeezer and two new characters named Bacon Bill, and Motato, Maurice LaMarche, and Kel Mitchell, among others.

Viewership of both the series and its follow-up on Netflix were significantly lower than the viewership of the original series, and was eventually cancelled in March 2018, before a revival of the series titled The VeggieTales Show was announced.
