Editorial Reviews

Once upon a time in the small Italian town of Bologna-Salami, there lived a lonely toymaker named Gelato and his assistant Cricket. Gelato had no children he could call his own, so one day he decided to carve a little boy out of wood. Imagine Gelato s surprise when he learned that this little toy boy could walk ... and talk ... and definitely had a mind of his own!

Will Pistachio learn that obeying the wisdom of a loving father will help him find what he really needs and could be the key to saving his whole family from becoming fish food? Find out in this all new VeggieTales adventure with a lesson about the importance of family and listening to your parents.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Laughed Until I Stopped March 9, 2010
One of the best Veggie Tales ever! The animation was top-notch, the humor was better then usual (I laughed out-loud many times) and the lesson was excellent for children. The importants of listening to wise parents and in this case a father in a child's life. The retelling of Pinocchio was a great storyline for the Big Idea group and they didn't disappoint with a very clever rendition. I liked how they skirted around the whole fairy thing with Madame Blueberry. Very cute. Kahlil (the caterpillar named Cricket) steals the show with his humor and loyalty. The Silly Songs With Larry was a good one with the Office Supply song done as a obscure Broadway musical. Qwerty gets an upgrade but Bob still rolls his eyes.

My four year old loved the entire DVD. I highly recommend it too.

1 Star = Pathetic
2 Stars = Fair
3 Stars = Good
4 Stars = Excellent
5 Stars = Life changing

This DVD brilliantly merges the classic Pinnochio story with the bible parable of the lost sheep. Along with the lesson on honesty, it helps children realize that parents ask them to do things out of love. The Silly Songs and Italian brothers will have your kids laughing and singing along. Loved it and so did the kids!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not their best work April 11, 2010
While I wouldn't be as harsh as some reviewers, this is certainly not the best effort they've made. The story is fine and the message is fine, it's just not that creative or done with the excellence you might expect. I enjoyed this more than my wife (she would probably give it only 2 stars).

3.0 out of 5 stars Pistachio November 13, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I give this rating because my daughter has watched this with my 3 year old grandson. She said there are a couple of parts that frightened him a bit. We will save this DVD until he is older and then he won't be frightened. My grandsons love VeggieTales--we have many DVDs. The stories are great, offer good morals that teach and entertain as well. We are very pleased with the messages that are taught to our grandchildren and we will be happy when more "LarryBoy" DVDs are out--LarryBoy is the favorite hero around our houses.

4.0 out of 5 stars I thought I was buying my favorite ice cream! :) June 24, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Our family loves Veggie Tales, we own them all. I had high hopes for "Pistachio," as I do all of them; maybe the fact that Pistachio is my favorite ice cream made me excited for this release. It's cute, don't get me wrong. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the lesson about obeying your parents, that they want to do what's best for you. The character names, songs, ducks, Blue Berry (hilarious)...all of that was clever and hilarioous. However, I just wish they hadn't done a "Disney" adaptation. The reason we won't let our kids watch Pinocchio is because of the fox and carnival scenes. Of coure, Pistachio isn't even half as bad, but I still didn't like the scheming and lying parts. yes, kids will have to deal with them someday, but our 2 to 5-year olds don't quite get that there are people like that in the world. I answer questions for them and we talk about what God wants us to do, that some people care only about money or other things and that we need to pray for them, etc. Still, though it isn't our favorite Veggie Tales movie (Ballad of Little Joe, Moe and the Big Exit, Noah's Umbrella, Esther, Joshua and the Big Wall...they are our favorites), it teaches an invaluable lesson. While our kids never choose it out of our collection, it's one I'm happy to put on in the van's DVD player for our 1+ hour trips. The songs, as always, are catchy and witty. It's definitely worth seeing, especially if you're a Veggie Tales fan. 5 stars for the lessons, 3 stars for presentation, 4 stars overall!

On March 2, 2010, Veggie Tales released its newest DVD, Pistachio: The Little Boy that Woodn't. This DVD is used to teach children the value of listening to their parents.

This DVD is the story of Pistachio (think Pinocchio), which like many other Veggie Tales videos, is another familiar story. Like Pinocchio, there is a toy maker, who carves the title character from wood, and just as in the original story, the character encounters several life lesson hurdles and lies just like Pinocchio.

Gelato (think Geppetto) had no children of his own, so one day he decided to carve a little boy out of wood. Gelato soon learned this little boy could walk, talk and have a mind of his own just like a real human child.

Just in case you haven't followed the previous Veggie Tales movies, each of them usually feature an intermission, which is the "Silly Songs" part of the show. This DVD's "Silly Song" is Office Supplies: Where Have all the Staplers Gone?

This video, as with other Veggie Tales videos are completely kid friendly. At the end of the "Office Supplies" section their is a part showing a "scary stapler" with big teeth that may frighten smaller children. This DVD addresses great lessons for children, the main one being, 'listening to your parents is a good idea'. My niece fell in love with this movie, nothing could take her attention away from it and see was singing the songs the rest of the day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Grandson loves this. March 18, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As I have already stated in previous reviews, every one of the Veggie Tales DVDs are absolutely wonderful. My five year old loves them as well as all my other grandchildren. They all watch and enjoy the DVD's and I especially love the fact that these DVDs are far and away the best teaching tools I have found to teach the values I want my family to have: honesty, faithfulness, friendship, dependability, caring, sharing,
