Product Description

Larry the Cucumber is detective dynamo Sheerluck Holmes and Bob the Tomato his venerable sidekick Dr. Watson. Together their superlative powers of observation and forensic fortitude can solve any crime. But because Sheerluck takes all the credit for the pair's sleuthing savvy, the missing Golden Ruler -- the most valuable and prized treasure in all of Buckingham Palace -- may never be recovered.

Will Sheerluck remember the all-important golden rule in time to rescue the ruler and save his friendship? Find out in the nail-biting VeggieTales mystery Sheerluck Holmes and the Golden Ruler.

Plus! See Archibald Asparagus as Don Quixote in "The Asparagus of La Mancha."

And! The inspiring new Silly Song with Larry, "Gated Community."

Featuring the brand new Silly Song
Gated Community

Amazon.com

The latest serving of VeggieTales' offbeat life lessons teaches (but never preaches) the value of friendship and of being considerate of others. The main feature stars Larry the Cucumber as Sheerluck Holmes and his sidekick Bob the Tomato as Watson; together they are London's crack crime-solving team. But Sheerluck starts to take credit for all the duo's achievements, leaving Watson to stew in his own juices (and trust us, we've worked with cucumbers like that; it's no fun to be left out). When Watson sulks off, Sheerlock faces just what a pickle things can be without teamwork, thus emphasizing the Golden Rule: "Treat others as you want to be treated." Bonus features include a tale based on Don Quixote, with delicious surreal dreamscapes and a rich flamenco score. One of the disc's many highlights is the Silly Song with Larry, "The Gated Community," whose intricate harmonies and peppily clueless lyrical delivery are worthy of Gilbert & Sullivan (Filbert & Sullivan?). There's a great behind-the-scenes feature with the creators talking about how long they had wanted to bring this story to the screen; lots of kid-friendly games and sing-alongs; and even a yummy "Bean Dip of LaMancha" recipe that kids demonstrate how to make. The verdict on the entire disc? Delish. --A.T. Hurley

By Mark Baker - Carstairs Considers HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on March 22, 2006
Format: DVD
With 27 videos released over the last 13 years, VeggieTales has become something of an institution. These computer animated vegetables have not only won over their target age group of kids but also teens and adults of every age. The blend of silliness with seriousness works well to impart Biblical lessons to all.

The latest in the series takes on the issue of friendship. What exactly does it take to be a good friend? Naturally, Bob the Tomato is ready with two stories that help answer the question.

First up, we get "The Asparagus of La Mancha." Don Quixote (Archibald Asparagus) runs a popular restaurant. When he starts having a series of bad dreams, he tries to figure out what they mean. Could the grand opening of the latest Food Factory restaurant right across the street be what the dreams were foretelling?

Naturally, Don's business drops off immediately, and he becomes concerned about loosing his business and best friends/waiter Poncho (Mr. Lunt). Is there anything he can do to get the Food Factory to go away or is it as useless as tilting at windmills?

Up next is the silly song, one of the weaker ones. In it, Larry tries to get his ball back from behind the wall of a "Gated Community" while the residences sing about how great life there is. It's been a while, but I think I now have a new least favorite silly song. This one had an interesting premise, but it didn't really go anywhere.

Finally comes the main feature. Larry the Cucumber takes on the role of Sheerluck Holmes, the best detective in London. That is, if you believe the press. Holmes is actually not nearly as brilliant as everyone thinks he is. The true detective is Dr. Watson (Bob the Tomato).

This would have to be one of the greatest veggietales movies of all times. Of course all of them are good (I should know - we have every single one). Sheerluck learns about treating others as you would want to be treated. The CG work is seamless and the story is complete. I highly recommend this for all ages.

Classic Veggie Tales - Wonderful way of illustrating moral lessons for young children from a Christian perspective with vegetables (cucumbers, tomatoes, peas, etc.) in starring roles. The tales are spun to be entertaining to children and adults alike.

It's Veggie Tales, what's not to love?!? The kids really love the story line and follow along with the story well. They range in age from 3 - 11 and all of them will actually sit and watch Veggie Tale movies.

I love veggie tales. Always great lesson for children to learn. This dvd is about friendship such as not being selfish in your friendship and give your friends some credit too. Great rendition of Sherlock Holmes. Great characters and stories to teach wonderful values in life.

My son is crazy for VeggieTales. But this is one of those who bring issues that are related to classic movies. For me the best of the collection are those who speak of biblical stories. But this still brings a good message.

All Veggie Tale's are superb. They teach morals and you never have to be "afraid" of the content.

The imagination shown by the creators is excellent, and entertaining to all ages. Some of the humor is so subtle, it makes you smile that you weren't expecting it.

They are great. And children love them as well.

While I am usually a huge fan of Bid Idea and VeggieTales, this one went way over my kids' heads. Don Quiote? Come on! And while Sheerluck was funny in a slap-stick sort of way, there was too much going on visually to get the whole plot. Okay for kids 8 and up, but not for the little guys. Try instead the older VT movies like Dave and the Giant Pickle or The Toy the Saved Christmas.
