|First Episode Appearance||Are You My Neighbor?|
|Voice Actor||Phil Vischer|
Jimmy Gourd is a character in VeggieTales. Jimmy is a heroic and goofy gourd, and is rarely seen without his brother Jerry. Like his brother, he is known for his tremendous appetite, and at times is rather absent-minded.
He debuts with his brother Jerry in Are You My Neighbor? as the "new guys" at the USS Applepies, but are unknowingly misfits for their huge appetites. However, Jimmy and Jerry prove themselves to be good people when they save the USS Applepies from a giant popcorn meteor by eating it, afterwards singing "I Can Be Your Friend."
Jimmy also appears as an Israelite in both Dave and the Giant Pickle and Josh and the Big Wall. Other notable roles for Jimmy are Prince Omlet in Lyle the Kindly Viking (parody of Shakespear's Hamlet), Dr. Jiggle and Mr. Sly in A Snoodle's Tale (parody of Dr. Jeykll and Mr. Hyde) Leg-O-Lamb in Lord of the Beans (parody of Legolas from Lord of the Rings) and Sir Frederick in The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything: A VeggieTales Movie. Jimmy also has a reoccuring role as the news anchor Jim Gourdly.
He is often given the role of a mailman or a baker. Jimmy is also a member of the VeggieTales band "Boyz in the Sink."
Jimmy is a loud and funny gourd who has a great love for eating and singing (although he can sometimes be intentionally off-key). He is also competitive, usually with his brother at who can eat more than the other. Although Jimmy is mostly kind-hearted, he can sometimes be short-tempered or easily annoyed and complain. However, he and Jerry can easily annoy others as well, at one time trying to take over the show in King George and the Ducky.
Jimmy is an orange gourd. In early appearances, he has brown-colored eyes and nose. In later appearances, they are colored orange. Jimmy also has a stem, but Jimmy is sometimes seen without it. Mike Nawrocki states that the stem is something similar to a toupee.
