"King George and the Ducky" is the 13th episode in the "VeggieTales" animated series. It was released in April of 2000 on VHS and issued on DVD May 20,2003. Subtitled "A Lesson about Selfishness", it teaches viewers that they must think of others before themselves. The message is conveyed through a story based on the Biblical account of David and Bathsheba from Second Samuel.

Although the "VeggieTales" adaptation remains relatively true to the source, Bathsheba is represented by a rubber duck, thus replacing the sin of adultery with the less difficult crime of theft. But the essence of the story remains intact: the King covets something belonging to his neighbor and takes it for his own; the selfish act is condemned by a king who wasn't so bright.

The subsequently released "Duke and the Great Pie War" is a prequel to this episode.

This was the first episode of Veggietales to air on qubo with Christian-based content.
