|~ The Fib|
Fibrilious Minimus, better known as the Fib for short, is the titular main antagonist in the VeggieTales episode "Larry-Boy! And the Fib from Outer Space!". He is a blue alien with spots who appears from an unknown galaxy and has the power to grow and shrink to lies and truths.
He was voiced by Tim Gregory.
The Fib is truly manipulative, traitorous, violent and deceiving. At first, he seems to be helpful and cooperative when he helps Junior get out of trouble. However, when he reaches his maximum height, he begins to be rather destructive and obstreperous when he causes a mess.
He is also shown to be very greedy, oppressive, temperamental and dangerous when he tried to eat Junior and LarryBoy. Just like the old saying, one little lie can get bigger and bigger, that is what the Fib does.
The Fib first appears as a fallen object detected by the bumblyburg science lab. This prompts the lab to contact LarryBoy, who goes out in his Larrymobile to locate the alien.
The Fib lands in a neighborhood and hides out in Junior Asparagus's house. The next morning, while Junior is having a tea party with his friend Laura Carrot, he accidentally breaks his dad's decorative bowling plate which prompts Laura to leave immediately. Shortly after this happens, the Fib appears and introduces himself to Junior. He then urges Junior to lie about breaking the plate to avoid getting in trouble. Junior is reluctant and worried at first, but the Fib convinces him to do it, saying that "A little fib couldn't hurt anybody".
Junior's Dad then comes home from work. When he sees the broken plate, he immediately asks Junior what happened. Junior, being encouraged by the Fib, fabricates a story accusing Laura of breaking the plate with an apple chopper. Junior's Dad believes this and leaves to go call Laura's father.
The Fib then emerges to congratulate Junior, and is three times larger than before (about the same size as Junior). The two of them then go off to wander around Bumblyburg.
Later, Junior is confronted by his friend Percy Pea, who reveals that Laura had been punished for breaking the plate, even though she said that it was Junior who broke it, and demands to know the truth. Junior tells another lie and claims that it was actually Laura's brother Lenny who broke the plate by feeding it to a crocodile. Shocked, Percy leaves.
The Fib returns to Junior and is now taller than him and his legs. The Fib once again congratulates Junior for telling a lie, telling him that he is got the gift and has what it takes. The two resume wandering around Bumblyburg.
Later that evening, Junior is confronted by Laura, Percy, and Lenny, who all rage at Junior over the lies he's told about them. Junior tells yet another falsehood when he claims that the plate was broken by space aliens who had switched brains with cows, but this time, Percy calls his bluff, remarking what Junior said was the plot of a movie he and his little brother saw before the story began. He then angrily rants at Junior for telling another "big fat ugly lie".
At that moment, the Fib reappears and finally shows his true colors. The Fib has now grown into a massive towering monster. He snatches up Junior and goes on a destructive rampage throughout Bumblyburg. Junior asks why the Fib was doing this, and the Fib reveals that, because of Junior's lies making him bigger, he could cause all of the havoc that he just wanted. Scooter, the city's chief of police witnesses this, and tells the police force to call LarryBoy. He escapes just in time before the Fib crushes his police car flat.
LarryBoy then appears on the scene and demands that the Fib release Junior. The Fib dares LarryBoy to come after him and takes Junior to the city's water tower. LarryBoy goes after the monster in his jet and jumps out to try and save Junior, however, the Fib also captures him. The Fib then declares that he was going to eat both Junior and LarryBoy and decides to eat LarryBoy first. However, before he can, it is revealed that Junior could stop the Fib.
Junior realizes what he needs to do and finally confesses to breaking his dad's bowling plate. He further admits that he also lied about both Laura and Lenny, each time causing the Fib to shrink until he finally disappears.
Afterwards, Junior apologizes to his dad for breaking the plate, admitting that the reason that he lied was that he was afraid that he would be mad at him. Dad admits that he figured Junior that breaking the plate was just an accident, and tells him that. From now on, he wanted Junior to tell the truth about things like that, which Junior promises to do.
Meanwhile, a red fib lands in the same neighborhood as Junior's house. However, it is unknown whether another lie will occur.
- His appearance helped set up the events of LarryBoy and the Rumor Weed, because the prologue had several references to it as well, as LarryBoy determined to find more space aliens.
- It is unknown how the Fib managed to get inside Junior's house in the first place, but it is likely that he sneaked in after Laura opened the door and left.
- In his small form, the Fib's appearance is likely a reference to one of the three small monsters, Lumpy from the first episode, Where's God When I'm S-Scared?.
