Veggie Tales Early Animation Tests

A video of Phil Vischer talking about the origins of Veggie Tales. Features several early animation tests, including "Mr. Cuke's Screen Test." It can be seen at 2:38.

Mr. Cuke's Screen Test is an animation test featuring VeggieTales character Larry the Cucumber that was created in 1991, 2 years before the first VeggieTales episode was released.

The animation test was created by VeggieTales co-creator Phil Vischer. According to Visher, on the commentary on "Where's God When I'm S-Scared?", the test was the very first piece of VeggieTales animation featuring the first VeggieTales character ever made, Larry the Cucumber.

The short is said to be 12 seconds long and just has Larry the Cucumber (or Mr. Cuke as he was known back then) looking off center at the camera and smiles and then hops around on the kitchen countertop. This would soon be the center stage for Bob and Larry during each VeggieTales episode.
