Amy Duggar claims ‘healthy cartoon’ has been banned from controversial family’s household and teases ‘more stories to come’
AMY Duggar has revealed that her conservative aunt and uncle were so strict that she couldn’t even show family members a faith-based cartoon.
The Counting On family members prepare to unveil more mysteries with the release of Jinger Duggar’s tell-all book.
Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are notorious for their strict rules, including restricting access to entertainment and television.
Amy, 36, has made no secret that she doesn’t have the best relationship with her conservative family.
But she thought it safe to show her younger cousins a Christian Veggie Tales video.
The popular animated series features a variety of walking and talking vegetables that retell Christian Bible stories.
However, in a TikTok, Amy explained that even those movies weren’t welcome in the family home.
“I remember the time I brought Veggie Tales home so my cousins could at least see one cartoon,” Amy wrote. A CHRISTIAN sane cartoon.”
The reality star appeared to roll her eyes in the accompanying clip as a vegetarian song played in the background.
“I’ve been told, ‘Veggie Tales aren’t welcome in our house, I don’t want my kids to think veggies talk.'”

It’s not clear who told her that exactly, but Amy teased that she had “more stories to share.”
Earlier this month, she spilled that her family was also denied a popular toy.
Amy revealed Cabbage Patch dolls were viewed as “demons” while calling her family a “cult” in a scathing new TikTok.
She wrote of her video of a Cabbage Patch Kids doll, “The IBLP teaches some questionable practices. Including this weird idea.
“When Cabbage Patch dolls were popular, you couldn’t take them home.
“Because they were full of demons. No joke. They were considered very sinful. dolls.”
She captioned the shocking upload: “Let’s try again… that’s what people at IBLP still believe. I will tell the truth about what I think about this cult.”
Amy previously revealed that she was considered the “wild child” who grew up wearing jeans, which Jim Bob and Michelle forbid their children to do.
“I was very well known as the black sheep. You would never say black sheep, but I was like the wild cousin,” she told The US Sun.
Amy went on to say that while her style and interests made her a “normal, normal person,” she was cast as the “bad, wild girl” by the fundamentalist Christian family.
The Duggars are bracing for more skeletons to emerge from the closet when Jinger’s book, Actually Getting Free, hits shelves Tuesday.
Jinger promoted the memoir and spoke openly about her own “cult-like” upbringing with her parents.
“Fear was a big part of my childhood,” Jinger revealed to People.
“I thought I only had to wear skirts and dresses to please God. Music with drums, places I visited, or the wrong friendships could all do harm.”
She continued: “[Bill’s] Teachings, in short, are based on fear and superstition and leave you at a point where you feel, “I don’t know what God expects of me.”
“Fear has crippled me with fear. I was afraid of the outside world.”
