Motato is a major antagonist in the Big Idea franchise, VeggieTales in the House.


When Motato first appeared, he kidnaps Ichabeezer and steals whatever he wants. He later made Ichabeezer say the the code for his safe, but he always won't, since the safe is used to protect important stuff. Larry-Boy later came to stop Motato in order to rescue Ichabeezer.

He appeared again in other episodes with different plans, mainly theft.

In VeggieTales in the City: Attack of the Marshmallow Laser, he gave up his evil life for good after Aprilcot betrayed him, Motato then redeemed himself, saved the League of Heroes, and became a Hero.


He is likely greedy, since he steals whatever he wants and he was even threatening people.
