Goliath the Giant Pickle is a recurring character in the Big Idea franchise, VeggieTales.


Goliath played himself as a villain in "Dave and the Giant Pickle". The Philistines chose the giant Goliath, and Dave volunteered to fight for the Israelites. Even though Goliath was much bigger and stronger, Dave defeated him with a slingshot and a pebble, but most importantly, with the help of God.

Goliath makes a brief appearance in "Josh and the Big Wall!", having a cookout with his family in the Promised Land, but unfortunately scaring away the Israelites who arrived there.

He also appears in "Madame Blueberry" on a menu in Stuff-Mart, fighting the Fib.

Physical Appearance[]

Goliath is a big green pickle. He has warts and hairs all over him. He has a big nose and eyes. When he fought Dave, he changed into red wrestling pants and boxing gloves.


  • He is the first limbless character to wear gloves.
  • The size of Goliath is somewhat inconsistent.
    • In both How Many Veggies? and Little Ones Can Do Big Things Too!, he is depicted slightly larger than Mr. Nezzer.
  • He reformed in Little Ones Can Do Big Things Too!.
  • In Dave and the Giant Pickle, given that he is gigantic, he shakes the ground when he hops. Bizarrely, he does not shake the ground in further appearances, that is, until Naaman Takes a Bath.
  • He is almost three times the size of Larry even though in real life, pickles are smaller than cucumbers.
  • Phil Vischer, who voiced Goliath, recycled his voice for Apollo Gourd.
