In 1991, 25-year-old computer-animator, Phil Vischer, sat down to create a group of characters that could teach Christian values to kids in a delightfully weird way. Hence, a tomato named Bob and a cucumber named Larry were born. VeggieTales would go on to revolutionize Christian filmmaking, selling more than 40 million videos and placing Phil’s faith-filled stories in one of three American households with young children.
Phil continues to pursue new ways to integrate faith and storytelling. Phil lives with his wife Lisa, their three kids and one dog in Illinois.
