|Rated: Not Rated (US) / G (Canada)|
Starring: Phil Vischer, Mike Nawrocki, and G. Bock
Released: July 27, 1999
The Good: This was a really cute episode; I thought the animation was outstanding, and it drives the point home while still having fun with the plot. With humorous nods to the Batman comics, and a great track by old-school Christian band The W's during the closing credits, this is pretty much fun for everyone; even adult viewers could benefit from the moral of this story!
The Bad: The only serious complaint I have is that there was no Silly Song, which may disappoint some Veggie fans.
Content Concerns: I don't do my usual analysis when it comes to Christian entertainment, but, I will say a scene or two of this film is dark, and the Rumor Weed is mildly scary. Only very young children would be bothered by that, though.
Conclusion: By now, everyone reading this probably knows what to expect from VeggieTales, and that's just what they'll get; well, minus a Silly Song. So, I'll just say this: You may despise this series because of its cuteness and kid-friendliness, but the lesson this episode teaches is one that many grownups should take to heart...and that's someone well into his twenties talking.
