Rack, Shack, and Benny are not their universe's equivalents of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego
Nebby K. Nezzer's brother is seen in the "Toy That Saved Christmas", and Mr. Lunt serves as the henchman to both. Since the show's Biblical history seems to be identical (apart from vegetable characters), that would require Mr. Lunt and the Nezzers to be a couple thousand years old.
- The episode "Rack, Shack, and Benny" could have taken place in modern times. They did have technology.
Alternatively, they caught a ride to the future, because...
The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything repurposed the Help-Seeker into a general-purpose time machine.
That explains why we see them in the present at the French seafood restaurant when they are able to recount an event they experienced during the Old Testament era.
The creators are atheists.
They're trying to make fun of Christians in a subtle parody by calling them mindless vegetables.
- They must be hiding it pretty well then, considering that the series is now reaching its 45th stand alone video plus two movies and countless tie-ins. And they've never stopped making references to the goodness of God, or the importance of biblical principles. While its true they had to compromise a little to keep putting material out by bringing in contemporary stories under biblical principles and retold for kids, I think Phil and Mike were sincere in their efforts to promote Christianity to the children of video viewing age.
Bob the tomato is gay or an atheist.
Come on, he's the only fruit in a world of vegetables!
- Well there also is The Peach who apeared in two silly songs.
- And the Grape family. And Madame Blueberry. And if you insist that Bob the tomato is a fruit, then so is Larry the cucumber.
- What about the Gourds?
The unnamed scallions represent the devil.
In almost all of their appearances, the scallions play some form of a villain (example: the crones who encourage the King to throw worshippers into the Lion's Den) or represent one of the Seven Deadly Sins (for example, in Madame Blueberry, they represent Greed). All the other vegetables who play some form of a villain usually get redeemed by the end and become supporting characters -- and on the rare occasions that they do play a bad guy, it's usually because they happen to fit that role well.
Clearly the scallions are supposed to represent the devil and the Seven Deadly Sins. This is why they have no name and are kept Out of Focus.
The one unnamed scallion that's been around since show one is God.
Omnipresent and underappreciated, in A Form You Are Comfortable With.
- That makes a disturbing amount of sense.
- While it could theoretically make sense, he's played the bad guy way too many times for that to be true, plus it was already Jossed seeing as how the shows creators said when they were starting out that they would never portray Jesus/God as a vegetable.
- Well then, maybe he's Satan?
