Boyz in the Sink is a fictional band of VeggieTales characters who first appear in the Silly Songs with Larry segment of The Ballad of Little Joe in August 2003. Like other recurring themes such as The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything, the group is made up of familiar VeggieTales characters performing specific roles. Members include Larry the Cucumber, Mr. Lunt, Junior Asparagus, and Jimmy Gourd.
"Belly Button", their first song, is Lunt's musical lament that he lacks a navel, while the video depicts his visit to a medical clinic. Tim Hodge voices Khalil the Caterpillar, who appears at the climax of the video dressed as a physician, informing Lunt that his stem serves the purpose of a belly button, and that surgery to correct the problem would be "covered by your shirt, but not your HMO".
While originally included as the Silly Song for The Ballad of Little Joe, "Belly Button" was released separately and won the Children's Jury Award for Animated Short Film or Video at the 2004 Chicago International Children's Film Festival. The song has been cited as the favorite silly song of VeggieTales co-creator Mike Nawrocki, who voices Larry the Cucumber.
The band's only album, Boyz in the Sink, was released by Big Idea in 2006, peaking in 2007 at #10 on the Billboard Top Kid Audio chart. It features some of the band members' hits from other VeggieTales appearances and some remixed musical content including Belly Button 2006.
