Customer Reviews

Love to watch with my children and now grandchildren.
Dr. Mark Richardson
Another great part is the animals in the story - sheep, donkey and camel - that ended up doing a little dance in the movie which was so cute to me.

In wonderful Veggie-style, the telling of the story of the little drummer boy comes to life through the adorable Junior Asparagus.

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!

I was very disappointed in this VeggieTales movie and would not recommend it to anyone. Most of the movie was dark...then ends with a short biblically incorrect positive feel good message. Here is a summary of what happens.

1) Aaron is a boy who gets a drum. He is friends with a few animals and one day comes back to his house burnt down and you assume his parents are dead.

2) He hates people and goes off on his own instead of seeking help. Ends up with very bad people who try to exploit him.

3) People exploit him and then end up selling his camel who is one of his friends. (this is when my 5 year old was crying and asking why the people are mean and Aaron didn't get a good adult to help him) The buyers are the three Magi (wise men) who are following a star. So, Aaron again goes off on his own towards the star.

4) The star leads Aaron to the Magi but before he gets to him one of his other friends, the sheep, gets run over by a cart and is near death.

5) The wise men are there in front of baby Jesus in the manger with some shepherds. (Even Snopes know this is an urban myth and Jesus was a small boy and not an infant when the Magi came)

6) Aaron as in the song plays his drum for baby Jesus since he had no gift for him and sees his parents there who takes care of the injured sheep.

I wish I could return this movie and I probably won't buy next year's VeggieTales Christmas movie (we have Star, Toy that Saved, St Nicholas, and Meaningful life) before viewing it now.

This is such a cute movie. My son loves it. One thing I will say though. The kid in the movie hits everything in his sight with his drum sticks, including things like lamps. My son went through a phase of doing this after watching it a few times. He was only 2 at the time. He is 3 now and it continues to be a trend.

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!
