Larry-Boy! And the Fib from Outer Space! is the eighth episode of the VeggieTales animated series. It was released in April 1997 on VHS and issued on DVD May 18, 2004. This is the first installment featuring Larry the Cucumber as Larry-Boy, the hero of the city of Bumblyburg. It is also the eighth episode to talk about telling the truth and is subtitled "A Lesson in Telling the Truth". In this story, Larry-Boy needs to confront a beastly Fib which has grown beyond control. Larry-Boy! And the Fib from Outer Space! was so successful it has spawned three sequels to date.


The episode begins with Percy and his brother Lil Pea, walking away from a movie theater and seeing what appears to be a comet. Jimmy and Jerry Gourd, who man an early-warning radar station, then alert Larry-Boy with "The Larry-Signal" of an approaching alien. Larry-Boy begins to search for the alien but gives up after finding nothing despite his butler Alfred's (Archibald Asparagus) protests. The scene then shifts to Junior Asparagus and Laura Carrot having a tea party. Junior decides to take his father's prized "Art Bigoti" bowling plate, but he accidentally breaks it. The alien "Fibrillus Minimus" (Fib for short) emerges and convinces Junior to lie to his dad claiming "A little fib couldn't hurt anybody". Junior lies to his dad, but soon discovers that every time he lies his "little fib" grows larger. He and Fib go downtown where Laura, Percy, and Lenny confront him about his lies. When Junior tells a lie about alien cows coming to earth and breaking the plate, Fib grows to be 50 feet tall and captures Junior and starts destroying the city.

Larry-Boy is summoned and pursues Fib and Junior in his Larry-Mobile as Fib tries to escape by climbing to the top of the watertower. Larry-Boy flies in the Larry-Plane, but has to eject, and falls into Fib's hand. Fib squeezes Larry-Boy until his plunger pops out. Larry-Boy is then told by Alfred that the Fib can only be stopped by someone else. As the Fib starts to eat Larry-Boy, Alfred informs him that Junior is the only one who can stop Fib. Junior then admits the truth to his parents (who are watching from below) and the Fib shrinks into nothing. Junior then apologizes to his parents and everyone else. Back on the countertop, Larry-Boy pairs with Bob in closing the show with the verse "And you shall know the truth, it shall set you free." (John 8:32). Finally, Larry-Boy announces the world premiere of his music video, the Larry-Boy theme song, which plays right before the credits.
