Dear Bob and Larry,
— Petunia [reading letter at the beginning of the episode]
"The Best Christmas Gift" is the Christmas episode of the direct-to-video series VeggieTales (2019 incarnation), which serves as the show's premiere episode despite it is produced as the second episode of the "show", which premiered on Digital & DVD on October 22, 2019, with its Christmas Day debut on TBN, the exclusive broadcasting rights holder of the Big Idea catalog, that same year. Co-creator Phil Vischer wrote this episode in a response to the letter written by Arthur.
Bob and Larry are preparing for their first Christmas show in Mr. Nezzer’s theater and the show seems to be headed for disaster. Bob begins to wonder how to celebrate Christmas when everything is going wrong. It’s only when the Veggies go back to the very first Christmas, where times were tough and things didn’t seem to be working out, that they all learn the promise of Christmas – God is with us. It’s a timeless story of hope that every family will enjoy!
