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.

Format: DVD
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.

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!

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).

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.

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!

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,

VeggieTales still seems to be going strong. This series of mostly straight to video releases uses talking and singing vegetables to teach Christian morals to kids. There is usually enough humor to entertain parents as well, hence the reason this single guy keeps buying and enjoying them. Their latest release is Pistachio: The Little Boy That Woodn't. As you might guess, it's a spoof on Pinocchio.

The first things long time fans will notice is that they've changed the theme song slightly. It's not a big enough change that most people will be upset, but after being the same for almost 20 years, it is definitely noticable.

Okay, moving on to the actual episode.

As usual, we start on the countertop as co-host Bob the Tomato is returning from a vacation. While he was gone, Larry the Cucumber had the crew from Extreme Re-Do: Crying Edition in to fix up the countertop. Yes, this part was definitely for the adults, and I got a huge kick out of it. They've also given Qwerty the computer an upgrade, and our letter of the week comes in a video e-mail. A little boy is wondering why he should listen to his parents. And so we roll film.

In the town of Bologna-Salami, there lives a lonely toy maker named Gelato (Larry the Cucumber). He's filled some of his loneliness by taking in three duckling and hiring an assistant, Cricket the Caterpillar (Khalil, and it's been a long time since we've seen him). One day, he is given a hunk of pistachio wood. After craving all night, he finds that his new puppet comes to life. But Pistachio (Junior Asparagus) isn't willing to listen to his father. As a result, he winds up running from a puppeteer and being swindled at the carnival. Will he learn to obey before it is too late?
