A Collection to Remind You How Special You Are,
This review is from: Veggie Tales: God Made You Special (DVD)I usually skip the VeggieTale collection DVD's. For some reason, I bought this one. And I've had fun taking this trip down memory lane.
This DVD features three classic Veggie stories, two silly songs, and one all new tale.
First up, "Dave and the Giant Pickle" reminds us that God can use us no matter how big or small we are by retelling the story of David and Goliath.
Then comes "Bob's Vacation," the new story on the disc. In it, a misunderstood phone conversation sends Bob off on his vacation depressed. Does Larry really think so little of him? And can Larry answer the fan mail and water Bob's plants while he's gone? Or will the other Veggies get in the way?
Then we go way back in time for "The Gourds Must be Crazy" from the third Veggie video ever. This is the story that introduced Jimmy and Jerry Gourd, in fact. The crew of the USS Applepies must figure out a way to avoid being hit by a giant popcorn asteroid. Maybe those new guys who are always eating can help.
Finally, we come to "A Snoodle's Tale." In this story, told in classic Dr. Seuss style, we learn of one snoodle who set out to discover why he was created. After some nasty encounters, he sets out for solitude. Will he find it there?
In between, we get to enjoy the classic silly songs "Belly Button" and "Yodeling Veterinarian of the Alps."
When I got this, I was hoping to really enjoy the new story. However, "Bob's Vacation" was the weakest. Even though I love the verse Qwerty gives us during the story, it isn't worth getting this video to see. And the veggie on the street interviews after each episode were just a little weird for me.
However, the other stories are still as wonderful as they were when first done. Granted, we do really get to see how far their computer animation as progressed as we go back and forth in time. But everything is so entertaining I really don't care about that.
While there are good stories here, there's little reason to buy this disc. Die hard fans already have the best parts elsewhere. Buy it only if you are a collector or you don't have the classic stories presented here.
