Bad Apple has just moved into town and has a score to settle. With the help of her sidekick worm, she spins a web of temptation that traps people in what they love most. She wants to take over the town and has set her sites on the mayor, a news reporter, and LarryBoy himself. Will LarryBoy fall prey to her plot? Can he overcome his love of chocolate to save the day?
I'll confess, as much as I love the VeggieTales series, the LarryBoy episodes are some of my least favorite. I actually wasn't looking forward to this release, but I got it anyway. I'm glad to be proved wrong.
The plot, while predictable, is fun. Larry has never been the smartest of the Veggie characters, but they don't make his stupid here, a complaint in the earlier LarryBoy shorts. And the story is funny with several great lines and site gags along the way to entertain kids and adults alike.
While most Veggie videos cram two stories into their 45-minute running time, this episode only features the one story. They don't even break for a "Silly Songs with Larry" segment. However, they do include the counter top wrap around with Bob, Larry, and Archibald Asparagus. These scenes are easily some of the funniest they've done in several episodes. I was laughing the entire way through them. The video does include a new LarryBoy theme song, "Rock on LarryBoy." Performed by "Shux," they feature a new vegetable we haven't seen before. I bet you can guess what they might be.Read more ›
The opening banter/dialog between Bob and Larry (Boy) and its conclusion after the episode is great. During the entire show, the graphics are smooth. The music is enticing and well done. The story is compelling and, while at once simple, at the same time it is also cleverly crafted. There is obvious and effective humor for the kids and more subtle and equally effective humor for us adults. And the moral message is both clear and applicable to people of all ages.
I watched it with my wife and our almost seven year old son, and all three of us loved it.
This one's definitely a new Larry Boy classic!
Having been seven years since the last computer-generated LarryBoy episode, Big Idea's animation has improved drastically. The animation is more lifelike, the colors are smoother and more realistic, and the lightning is better.
It's just as funny and as well-written as the others, with more "clueless" remarks from LarryBoy and more of his mixed-up metaphors. ("An apple in the hand is worth three bushes!")
The opening countertop begins similarly to the Fib with a technology joke concerning Bob. The vegetables on the countertop (not telling who) receive their first text-messaged letter.
Then opens the program. The beginning is strangely familiar. It is actually the teaser, which was made an entire year before the Bad Apple was even thought up.
The temptations are good, and even funny. LarryBoy's, as you can guess from the cover, is chocolate. I won't tell any of the others (I can't spoil everything for you!), but by the time the program is halfway through, you'll be laughing like mad at Alfred's.
The ending countertop has quite a surprise for anyone who hasn't peeked at the pictures on Big Idea's website. Bob is apparently tired of being left out of every LarryBoy episode. Oh yes, and the "What Have We Learned" song, which was stolen by the Sporks back in "Lord of the Beans," has returned! (However, they never explain who got it back.)
Be sure to look for flashbacks from other episodes, including Baby Moses from "Duke and the Great Pie War," the cell phone from "Minnesota Cuke," and Jimmy's outfit from "Sumo of the Opera.Read more ›
That's in the past now! This LarryBoy is full of more adventure than was done with him before. I like the way they employ the use of his plungers more. The Bad Apple is a classic villian too. Thank you, Big Idea, for bringing LarryBoy back to the format he belongs in.
If you are a VeggieTales fan, this is one for the collection. If you aren't a fan, get it anyway. There is always a good message about God, Jesus and the great message that is offered to those who believe. Enjoy!
