Bob is back! After being suspiciously absent from the last three VeggieTales videos, Bob the Tomato is back with his loony sidekick, Larry the Cucumber. First, Jerry and Jimmy Gourd take their turn in creating a tale of selfishness, titled "The Englishman

My 2 yr old daughter loved this one!

Along the way he learns a lesson from Melvin, the "slightly odd" wise man, and realizes that sharing is more important than being selfish.

Well done story, good characters, good songs.

These videos are so clever. They include humor that only an older child or an adult would understand while still having great kid-appeal. This series is truly whole-family viewing material!
In this particular episode, King George (aka Larry the Cucumber) is playing in the bath with his rubber duckie. He has a whole collection of duckies, but he spies a little guy taking a bath with *his* duckie from his window. (Think of David and Bathsheba here) Even though he has plenty of duckies, he wants the little guy's (Junior Asparagus') duckie!
Before the story begins, Jimmy and Jerry gourd try to take Bob and Larry's place introducing the show - with hilarious results!
I guarantee you'll love this video - it's for children of ALL ages!
God bless you all and check out my other reviews!

This has to be one of my favorite Veggie videos! Jimmy and Jerry Gourd attempt to host the show (something they've wanted to do since Dave and the Giant Pickle) disguised as Bob and Larry. They show a story entitled "The Englishman who went up the hill and came down with all the bananas." You have to see it! A classic! Fortunaly, the real tomato and cucumber come and show King George and the Ducky. At first I found it hard to believe that Big Idea made a children's video on the story of David and Bathsheba, but the only thing King George (aka Larry) desires is Thomas's (aka Jr. Asparaus) rubber ducky. This video has wonderful music (I Love My Duck will be running through your head for hours!) and the Silly Song is truly wonderful. This video is fun, and the lesson is a wonderful lesson for children.

This is another great installment in the Veggie Tales series. It is a very cleverly disguised retelling of the story of David and Bathsheba. The video opens with a brief stint by Jimmy and Jerry Gourd, who are not so cleverly disgiused as Bob and Larry, as hosts. After their parable about not being selfish, titled The Englishman who went up a hill and came down with all the bananas ( you have to see it, it's priceless), the real story unfolds. King George, played by Larry, is in love with his rubber ducky. His kingdom is engaged in the Great Pie War but he has no interest in it. He would rather be in the tub with his duck. All is well until he spies Thomas down in the village, in a tub, with a duck (that is identical to his own). He decides his duck, or any of the other ones in his closet, is not good enough and he must have Thomas'. So, he sends Thomas off to the war and takes his duck. I don't want to give away the end but he learns his lesson. Like the other videos in this series, this is a great example of Christian entertainment for all ages. Small children will enjoy the music and excellent animation. Adults will enjoy the great music and subtle jokes and gags that no small child would catch. Great entertainment. This video also includes a Silly Songs with Larry called Endangered Love. Larry is watching a soap opera titled Endangered Love and is a little carried away with Barbara Manatee. Very funny. (There is also a preview of 3-2-1 Penguins. The next series from Big Idea. Sure to be another winner!)

"King George and the Ducky" is an extremely clever re-telling of the story of King David and Bathsheba that is perfect for children [I wouldn't have thought it could be done!]. This is an amazingly funny video - for parents and kids alike. The music in this one is excellent, catchy, and totally singable. ["Barbara Manatee, you are the one for me..."] :) "King George" is VeggieTales at its best and you'll never be sorry for buying this one!

I just adore the Veggie Tales tapes. These guys have the same simple-minded humor I enjoyed and engaged in as a teenager. It's like never leaving college. This episode with the ducky is one of the best, and a very interesting way to introduce the story of David and Bathsheba to kids (definitely without the sex part). This time King George (aka David) covets his neighbor's Ducky (not his wife). Catchy songs, funny plot, all in all, a great time. I also laughed out loud with the "low-budget" skit done by the Squash at the beginning. Oh, my 27-month-old likes Veggie Tales, too...especially the Ducky.

Bob & Larry are back to share a story about being selfish. The video utilizes the beloved Veggie Tales imagination when telling a "modified" version of the story of King David & Bathsheeba. The music is wonderfully contageous, reminiscent of a Rodgers and Hammerstein musical.
Silly Songs with Larry is back! This silly song, though, has a point to it, subtle as it is. Bob walks in as Larry is watching a soap opera (and singing affectionately about/to one of the characters) and suggests that he read a book instead. It may be too subtle for children, though.
The annimation is definitely more advanced than previous vedeos and maintains the same excellent Big Idea quality. And, we even get to see Phil Vischer announcing Big Idea's new video project called 3-2-1 Penguins.
It's another great video from Big Idea!

The BigIdeas people have another excellent childrens video in King George and the Rubber Duckie, a lesson on selfishness. This video is aimed at the age 5 to 11 set, though adults will find it interesting enough to view it repeatedly (as I did on a recent 17 hour cross-country drive!). Larry the Cucumber is back with Bob the Tomato and Junior Asparagus in this take-off on the Biblical story of King David and Bathsheba. Not to worry, the object of our King's affection in this video is a rubber duckie. Not content with a closet full of duckies, the King covets one held by a young boy and conspires to take it. Along the way he learns a lesson from Melvin, the "slightly odd" wise man, and realizes that sharing is more important than being selfish.
The video opens with the Gourd brothers, Jimmmy and Jerry, who try to host the show. They do a lesson on selfishness entitled, "The Englishman who Went Up the Hill and Came Down with All of the Bananas." Done in a campy crayon style and piano music that sounds like it came from a 1910 1-reel film, it is giggle-inducing in adults as well as children. Larry is back with another silly song, "Barbara Manatee." This one really IS silly!
The music in this video is what we expect from BigIdeas: bouncy, clever, and combined with silly slapstick artistry makes this video move right along. Sight gags abound. And who thought of a "flannelgram"? The animation again is excellent and holds our interest. But best of all is that the BigIdeas team here, as in Madame Blueberry, make an important lesson in life -- don't be selfish -- entertaining. Too many childrens videos are either pointless or pedantic in their moralizing. Veggie Tales seems to have hit on a smart combination: dress up Bible stories with slapstick, unusual characters, eye-catching animation and bouncy music, so as to impart a lesson. It's a lesson that the entertainment industry, not to mention a few Sunday preachers, could learn.
