"Madame Blueberry" is the tenth episode in the "
VeggieTales" animated series. It was released in July of 1998 and issued on DVD May 20,2003. Subtitled "A Lesson in Thankfulness", it conveys the message that material possessions will never truly make us happy. We must instead be thankful for what we have.
The story introduces Madame Blueberry who has many possessions but is perpetually "blue". When a massive department store opens nearby, she goes on a shopping binge thinking that owning more things will bring her happiness. Ultimately she must learn the hard way that joy cannot be found in material goods. This is the first episode since "Tales from the Crisper".
The episode is a loose parody of the novel "
Madame Bovary" by Gustave Flaubert. Emma Bovary, the protagonist of that novel, also lives beyond her means to assuage a feeling of emptiness and dissatisfaction with her life.
This episode was aired on
quboaround the Thanksgiving holiday in November 2006. The titular character was voiced by Chicagonative Megan Moore Burns.
