|Rated: G (Canada)|
Starring: Phil Vischer, Lisa Vischer, and Mike Nawrocki
Released: October 9, 2007
Based on the Biblical story of the Prodigal Son.
My Review: The story of the Lost Son and The Wizard of Oz are a weird mix, but this Veggie episode makes it work really well. The animation is outstanding, and most of the songs are really cute and fun; some of them are spoofs of tunes from the old-school Judy Garland film. As usual, positive elements abound, and a great moral is driven home. The only problem I had was with the Silly Song; after it ended, I wondered: Is that the best they could do? It was a far cry from the old-school numbers like "His Cheeseburger" and "The Hairbrush Song". Other than that, though, I enjoyed it.
- Sex: None. 5/5
- Nudity: None. 5/5
- Language: None. 5/5
- Violence: Mild slapstick. 4/5
- Drugs: None. 5/5
- Frightening/Intense Scenes: A bit of emotional intensity. 4/5
- Other: Like the original Wizard of Oz, this episode deals with magic...but only slightly. 4/5
