Watching it again this weekend, I was struck by two things. First, how much fun this video is. With Jr. they perfectly captured a little kid and his logic and created some truly funny moments with talk about the slime monster. Although the funniest moment belongs to Daniels chatter as he's being carried to the lion's den. The second is how far they and the technology have come. By today's standards, the animation is bad. Their recent projects with bigger budgets are much better looking. However, that doesn't affect the fun at all. I almost guarantee that you'll have one song or another stuck in your head after watching this.
If there's a better way to teach kids Bible truths then this series, I sure don't know what it is. They're truly entertaining for the entire family. Heck, I buy them and I don't even have kids.
By the way my son is now 3 years old and sleeps soundly every night and I do not mind taking 30 minutes out of my day to let him watch this before we go to bed. It's our tradition and it still works.
This is one of the best VeggieTales videos in my opinion - the songs are top notch, the stories are very well done, and the message comes accross loud and clear in a way that is meaningful for small children and adults alike [Hey, I sing that Boogie Man song when I start worrying about the Bills - its just as relevant to me and my worries!]. One warning though - since watching this video, my two year old is fond of saying "Just four more minutes..." when she's not ready to go - just like Jr. Asparagus!
We finally meet for the first time, a veggie favorite, Junior Asparagus. He's watching "Frankencelery"!!! Mom says time for bed, and maybe he shouldn't watch scary stuff. Junior insists that he isn't scared. But what happens when it appears that monsters are in the closet? Enter Bob and Larry! To this day, I happen to love the song, "God is bigger than the Boogie-Man" just because I personally loved the catchy way it was all played out. Little did I know when I first heard it on Riley's (my daughter) first CD that it was from the very first episode.
But then you are introduced to... BRRR BRR BRRRR!!! (trumpet blast, people!) A SILLY SONG!!! And so we are introduced to "The Water Buffalo Song", the first of so many cherished silly songs that we've come to love and enjoy.
BUT WAIT!!! The show isn't over. Not yet. Another lesson in being scared, this time with the story of Daniel. This time we meet Archibald Asparagus as King Darius. But who else do we meet? Those 3 bee-boppin' leeks! And they tell about Daniel in the lions' den. It still isn't over yet!
We head back to the kitchen where we find out what we have learned today.Read more ›
In the first tale on this video, Jr. Asparagus stays up watching a scary show, and later gets the heby-jebies while laying in his bed in a darkened quiet room. Bob the Tomato and Larry the Cucumber ("I'm a cucumber, NOT a pickle!") show up and explain that Jr. doesn't have to be afraid because "God is bigger than the Boogie Man". A song that turns into jumping-on-the-bed fun follows, and Jr isn't afraid any more. I think it's great because one of the challenges of bringing up children is giving them the security they need! This one sticks to a simple message appropriate for very young children.
I also liked this one because for very young children, story lines with a lot of action sometimes are too hard to follow. Some of the other VeggieTales that we have I think will be better understood by my children as they get older.
The story of Daniel and the lions' den is done just as well, and again is very appropriate and easy to follow. This one deals with jealousy, trust, and doing what you know is right even when it's hard.
