The villians this round are Awful Alvin and his sidekick, Lampy. *Lampy is one of my favorite new characters* Alvin's evil plan is to relase angry eyebrows on the city, making the people, er, vegtables hold on to thier anger. Can LarryBoy withstand the attack? Can he defeat Alvin and Lampy? *after the main feature, the short "Fly by Might" is shown. Standard Tom & Jerry fare*
In the special DVD features, there are interviews, kareoke, character development, and other fun diversions.
Mike and Phil have another winner with The Angry Eyeballs. I recomend this for ages 6-126. *Even teens like me love the Cucumber of Steel!*
My 3-year-old son LOVES this video. He's big into superheros right now, and Larryboy isn't the normal angst-ridden fare with a terrible dark side. And he has good moral lessons to teach, as well as showing that even if you forget or make a mistake, you can still make it right by listening to God.
My 6-year-old daughter likes it, too. And how often does that happen?!
Good family fare, unless you don't want your kids to watch the same program 2-4 times in a row.
Yes, it is a shock to those of us who have loved the old Veggie Tales. They are exploring a new medium and I just hope they aren't abandoning the old one!
The cartoon style is "retro 60's" style and you need to think superhero stuff. Batman, Superman, etc. The clever lines that they always had which really entertained the adults, are there on this one, but not nearly as many.
I think some young children might be afraid of "Awful Alvin", the villian in this new episode. (by the way, Alvin is a scallion, which you will find out if you watch all the extras on the DVD). His sidekick, Lampy, is not scary at all, and actually doesn't do much, which is entertaining in and of itself.
Welcome a new character "Bok Choy" who states his favorite dressing. He's teaching a class on how to be a superhero. The subtle humor is there, but you have to listen a little harder for it (or watch it more times <g>).
If you look at this as something different and NOT a new Veggie Tales, I think you will like it better. Also, if you can, get the DVD version. I was pleasantly surprised to see all the great extras. They show you how to draw Larry and Larry-Boy, and there is actually a Bok Choy quiz game, where you actually interact with the DVD! Oh, and be sure not to miss "Larry-Oke", a take off on Karaoke. They have the picture and the words to the Larry-Boy theme song and the words you're supposed to sing are highlighted. I can see kids really enjoying singing along.
The DVD has a whole hour of entertainment - the VHS tape has only 30 minutes running time!

I was disappointed in it. The characters look different and I agree with the reviewer who wrote that it lacked the same wholesome qualities that its predecessors had. Though better than most cartoons on the air now, I wish Big Ideas had stuck with its original format. My boys love it, but the spiritual reasons for not staying angry were weak, something that was always strongly emphasized in previous videos. Overall, I would recommend this video only if they had purchased other Veggie Tales movies. I would not recommend it as a first choice.

The Villain steals the show! I love the regular characters for sure, but Awlful Alvin and his campy evil laugh alone is worth the cost of the tape. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Philip D. Parshall
