12 of 13 people found the following review helpful By Mark Baker - Carstairs Considers HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on October 2, 2011
Format: DVD
Junior Asparagus has become obsessed with the drums, playing them all the time. While his parents go out Christmas shopping, he is supposed to go caroling with his friends, but a mix up leaves him home with Grandpa (Pa Grape). Mad at his friends, Junior intends to sulk, but Grandpa decides to tell him the story of the little drummer boy.

Back in the time of the Romans lived a little boy named Aaron (Junior again) who had a happy home life and a gift with a drum that could make animals dance. When his family home is destroyed, he sets out with just the animals left, determined to live as isolated a life as possible. Will he stay angry or will he have an encounter with the newborn king?

This episode appears to be based on a story, or at least inspired by it, but I'm not familiar with the source material. The story is very tragic at the beginning, and you can really understand Aaron's anger, a theme that is played out through the entire story. And yet, when the climax comes, it is suddenly all washed away - it's just too easy. The resolution needed more context to the story.

Along the way, we do get some great humor with the characters that Aaron meets along the way. I especially loved the Star Wars references at one point.

They've finally animated "The 8 Polish Foods of Christmas" from the mid-90's Christmas CD, and it's still a hoot.

For much of this DVD, I was enjoying the story despite the sad beginning. I just wish that the climax had included more of a lesson; as it is, it was over all too quick.

First off I should mention, we have never seen VeggieTales before but I am glad we finally have! My 3 year old loved this DVD! He laughed and laughed over vegetables dancing and talking! Once he got over that I was able to show him lessons learned from Veggie Tales, like forgiveness and friendship. There are funny songs and references (Star Wars is one) throughout the movie, that I don't mind watching it with them, because of course they have to watch it now over and over! The story does start out sad but turns around and how can you not smile from singing and talking vegetables! I also have a feeling we will be watching this DVD long past Christmas!

My little siblings love watching this over and over; it is a very cute story from Big Idea, and it is a completely new story line, unlike some of the other films coming out of Big Idea now. The only thing that I noticed about this video was Junior's perpetual bad attitude. My youngest brother has some mental difficulties and this causes him to pick up on a lot of negative attitudes right away. It is unfortunate that he could not escape bad attitudes even by watching a Christian film. Oh well...over all a cute movie!

My children love everything that VeggieTales produces and the absolutely love the new VeggieTales DVD, The Little Drummer Boy! In wonderful Veggie-style, the telling of the story of the little drummer boy comes to life through the adorable Junior Asparagus. As soon as I pop this DVD in, my kids are glued to the television. And most importantly, they're learning amazing lessons!

I am a big fan of having family Christmas movie time. However, if you are looking for entertainment value, skip this and grab you a copy of Elf, Charlie Brown Christmas, or The Grinch. This is not nearly so artful nor creative as VeggieTales has been in the past. And ultimately, I'd skip it.

If movies that are just sort of thrown together a la a fifth grader's short story for English class bother you because of poor writing, overdone plot elements, contrived and clunky conflict and resolution, and unlikable/unsympathetic characters, you'll also want to skip this one. It's kind of a kids' version of a cheesy Lifetime movie with old 80s sitcom stars from supporting roles.

And if you look to VeggieTales as an aide in teaching your children about the Bible and hope to find this as a way to relate to them the true meaning of Christmas, you're REALLY going to want to skip it--

I just watched this for the second time with two of my children (8 and 5) and asked them what they thought it was about. They got it right for the most part, they said it's about a little boy who thinks his parents have died. He's really sad and lost for a while and gets in with an odd (the kids seem confused about their character) crowd but then eventually finds his parents at the end. That about sums it up. Junior plays two characters, the Drummer Boy in the story set at the time of Christ's birth, and himself in the story set in modern times. The character from the part set in modern day is, in a word, smarmy. The character of the Drummer Boy is an Anakin Skywalker of sorts who, while not as dark as the future Darth Vader, is completely consumed by the death of his parents. First of all, why do so many writers of children's stories decide that one or both parents should be missing?
