Product Description

Oh, my! Determined to present something "classy" for a change, Archibald Asparagus has taken over VeggieTales! Assisted by those rascally French Peas, Archibald aims for new heights in "veggie programming" by attempting to produce "the world's first all-vegetable staging of Shakespeare's Hamlet," the first ever "Classy Songs with Larry," and for the grand finale, the world premier of what he believes to be Gilbert and Sullivan's "lost musical" - "Lyle the Kindly Viking!" Of course, working with the French Peas as assistants is a recipe for disaster and in the chaos - and hilarity - that ensues, Bob, Larry and Junior all learn a great lesson about sharing. Archibald, on the other hand, mostly just learns to never again work with the French Peas. Don't miss Junior Asparagus as "Lyle the Kindly Viking" in this hilarious VeggieTales musical adventure! Your whole family will sing - and laugh - along as they learn that "sharing gets us more of what we really want - friends!"

When Archibald Asparagus takes the lead in the new VeggieTales production (focused on sharing), it is with the aim of making the show more serious and high minded. Fortunuately for us, the viewers, it makes it sillier than ever. Hoorah!
We start with a rendition of Shakespeare's not-so-famous play, "Omelet." We enjoy some amusing variations on well known lines, including "2B?" "Not 2B"--in the context of Battleship. The french peas are particularly endearing.
The standard Silly Song With Larry has been replaced by a Classy Song With Larry at Archibald's request, having a couple strong resemblances to Forrest Gump.
The title story, "Lyle the Kindly Viking", features an adorable Junior Asparagus as Lyle, the potholder-making, warbley-singing little viking boy. Larry the Cucumber is also amusing as Sven, who has a difficult time grasping the fact that, though this is a musical (this is where Gilbert & Sullivan come in), he doesn't have to sing EVERYTHING.
Everything about this VeggieTales is charming, hilarious, and filled with the kind of values that make the series so popular. The DVD is even better than the VHS, because in addition to the improved video and sound quality, we also get an interview with the creators, a wide screen version of Larry's song, and a storyboard comparison. Either way you go, the animation is high quality, the songs are catchy, and it's loads of fun!

Okay, I have to admit that when I watched Esther and only laughed like 3 times I was sacred that Big Idea had lost the big idea. But not so. LYLE THE KINDLY VIKING takes us back to the good old veggie days. THe songs are silly, the jokes are funny and the plot hillarious. AS Archibald takes over to add a highbrow attitude to the show we find the play Omlet featuring my favorites: THE GOURDS! It is way funny! Then the lost Goilbert and Sullivan operetta LYLE THE KINDLY VIKING is discovered. Another halarious romp. This is the first Veggie DVD and it is a nice attempt. I am sure there will be more special features to come. The storyboard speecial feature was a little lame but the interviews are nice. THe widescreen silly song was an interesting choice....END

We've been fans of Veggie Tales since most people were still asking "Larry who?" and were thrilled to find that the first Veggie Tales program on DVD was our most favorite yet. For those that loved the compilation of the first Silly Songs video, this is a return to hilarity, with no boring spots anywhere in the program.
The DVD also has excellent bonus features on the making of "Lyle", and the trailer for Jonah (due in theaters next year - Yes! on the BIG screen!) shouldn't be missed.
If you love Veggie Tales and watch them as often as we do, be sure to buy them on DVD - they will last MUCH longer before starting to show the wear of having been played too much. Now we just have to wait for them to re-release the others on DVD!

My fiance and I are huge V-T fans, though we've only been able to see a few episodes so far. We're trying to keep our collection limited to DVDs so they'll still be in good shape when we have kids.
I teach literature and my fiance is a norse history buff, so when I saw the Viking title, I had to pick this one up. We love it!!! The lessons are clear without being preachy and the subtle jokes are wonderful. "The last yolks? I'll chew them, Horatio." Bravo! We adore the Gilbert & Sullivan takeoff too. One warning-- the songs are so catchy, they'll be stuck in your head!

This Veggie Tales movie is the funniest one I have seen yet. I love the humor and of course the visual aspects are incredible.
With Archibald taking over the show and pretty much turning into Masterpiece Theater, it's sure to please since things go wrong in his perfect world. Jr. Asparagus plays the singing Lyle, which I love, and you will also see Mr. Lunt as a girl in Omlet. This is a must have for all Veggie Tales lovers. If you haven't seen any, I would say this is the one to start off with viewing. Well done!

My 2 year old daughter loves to watch Veggie Tales and I am a huge fan of musicals so when I saw that this was a musical Veggie Tale story I just had to buy it. How can you not enjoy a movie with a play called "Omlet" in it and the main feature about a group of singing Vikings?!!! We really enjoy watching all the Veggie Tale movies that have come out so far and look forward to many more. The only problem I have with these movies is the song that is sung at the beginning of each one because I can't get it out of my head for days after listening to it. Oh well, at least it has a nice beat!

This is the best in the Veggie Tales series on DVD. I have all the Veggie Tales DVDs, including the Silly Song (which I would also highly recommend), and I think the story script is the funniest. Although the stories are not based on any Biblical stories, the Biblical message is good and easy to understand. The only bad thing about the DVD is that it doesn't have subtitles. I've watched this DVD least 10 times with baby already. A must have. Enjoy...

I have only had this DVD a short time and already got it memorized. My son (1 year old) will sit and watch this entire DVD and is esp. fond of the silly songs. I personally like him watching VeggieTales because they teach my child about God in a suttle way. The characters are the cutest.
