From the creators of 2002's wildly successful JONAH: A VEGGIE TALES MOVIE comes a new story of heroism in the beloved VEGGIE TALES' world, THE PIRATES WHO DON'T DO ANYTHING. Now, we follow the comic misadventures of three animated veggie pals who reluctantly set sail for adventure and discover that real heroes don't have to be tall, strong, handsome...or even human.

Garrrrr! Working at the Pieces of Ate Dinner Theater is less than exciting when you're a busboy. For three moping misfits - Elliot, Sedgewick and George (Larry the Cucumber, Mr. Lunt and Pa Grape) - all they dream of is the day when they can ditch their dishrags and take stage to star in the big pirate show.

But with Elliot's timidity, Sedgewick's laziness and George's lack of self-confidence, it seems as if the day to prove who they really are will never come...

Things are about to change when a mysterious ball drops from the sky and lands at the unlikely seafarers' feet. A "Helpseeker" sent from the past in search of heroes, the artefact sets in motion a series of events that drags the friends back to the 17th century - and into the belly of certain danger. The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything must each face their fearsóbecoming unlikely heroes in a battle to rescue a royal family from an evil tyrant, and themselves from living the life of common couch potatoes.

The latest in a franchise that has sold more than 50 million DVDs/videos since its 1993 inception, THE PIRATES WHO DON'T DO ANYTHING: A VEGGIE TALES MOVIE continues the hit series' values-based lessons in teaching kids what it really means to be a hero.
