The first story is in my opinion is the best. Snooderella is written in the same, and misty eye, manner as the orginal Snoodle's Tale. I have to believe Phil wrote this one too. A beautiful story about God loving us as we are.
The silly song, Pants was...well I found it somewhat annoying. Although I have found myself doing the laundry while singing, "they're pants if you short and shorts if you are tall" But it is still pretty good.
Sweetpea Beauty was also a great story...though Sweetpea Beauty did give me a toothache. But it really gave such a great point about seeing beauty and usefulness in EVERYTHING...even a skunk & worms. Not something you would expect to see in a Princess story but so needed. And I have to say it was...er...interesting to see bushy eyebrows on a blueberry.
To some up, not the absolute best of Veggie Tales but certainly not close to being the worst. I would rate it in the top 10 of Veggie Tales. Even those who are not big Veggie Tales I believe would love the message of this video.
Snoodlerella really was an awkward, homely girl with glasses and braces and an abominable hair-do and of course her step-mom and sisters deride her. She gets a magical makeover and is the belle of the ball until midnight when once again the braces, glasses and hair reappear and everyone loses interest in her.... except for the king, of course, the God-figure who made her and loves her, who comes to dance with her. Disdain is shown by all other characters in the video for the plain, awkward child! Not the lesson you want to teach a child.
Sweetpea Beauty is a lovely girl, but the messages that surround her story were again a little off and distracting. Again physical beauty was glorified, even as they were teaching that inward beauty mattered most! There's got to be a better way to teach your little miss about inward beauty and take the emphasis off the outward looks. On the positive side, Sweatpea does have a beautiful voice and the songs were very pretty.
VeggieTales always has Biblical principles in their films, and I want to instill them in my child as much as I can with the things she listens to, watches and reads.
This story is great for girls of all ages...even us moms who don't always feel our best!
There are 2 stories on this DVD - Snoodlerella and Sweetpea Beauty.
Snoodlerella is a parody of Cinderella and is about a little "Snoodle" who doesn't feel pretty. She has glasses, braces and bad hair. She gets transformed by her fairy godmother and goes to the ball. The clock strikes midnight and all her "beauty" disappears. She feels bad about herself, but the king sees her and tells her how beautiful she really is and ends up dancing with him.
Sweetpea Beauty has different glimpses of fairytales we all know including Sleeping Beauty and Snow White. Very cute when they add the different fairytales together. The queen is obsessed with being the most fair, but the mirror tells her Sweetpea is the most beautiful and will take the crown. Eventually the queen realizes how wrong she was about Sweetpea after Sweetpea tells her how beautiful she is on the inside, and that outward appearances don't matter in God's eyes.
This is a great alternative to the Disney Princess movies if you're sick of watching them!

Giving little girls a complex about wearing glasses in the first 5 mins gets one quick shut down in my house. Why even give them the idea that people don't find them beautiful? Read morePublished 5 months ago by Jennifer Moreman
