VeggieTales - Then to Now

Updated on March 9, 2015

A little history - I first learned about VeggieTales from a friend of mine. Funny he was not married nor did he have kids. But he did have all of the current shows on VHS. So after finding them we too got the first six on VHS. Since then every one we have acquired has been on DVD. And to be honest we have not gotten every one that has come out. Sorry Bob and Larry we missed a few. But that is why I found this connection to share with the world. There is a good possibility that it will soon be added to our collection so that we also will have a complete collection. Yes world this is on my wish list.


This is a 10 disc set containing all the episodes from 1993 through 1999. To have that many shows in one place is a great thing to add to your collection. At this point we have one shelf that is just for VeggieTales. This boxed set would help reduce that space and yet give us more than we have now. Not to mention the ability to once again watch those shows that we only have on VHS.

One thing that I really enjoy about our current DVD's are the bonus features. Specifically the background images that are sometimes available. In fact there is one that came with the Tomato Sawyer & Huckleberry Larry - Big River Rescue that I would use as a background on the MAC at my desk during tax season. It made people wonder what I was up to. And it gave me a great way to share about God and VeggieTales and what both could do for people. Amazing how just one picture can open many doors for a person. And for those of you that don't know what I am talking about in this episode Bob the Tomato was setting up a tax preparation business.

The Wrap-up - So you see even though when you first look at this boxed set you may think it would be great for kids and we don't have any. You maybe greatly mistaken. As you can tell with what I have shared there are several ways these can reach out to adults as well as kids. On one side they are a great learning aid. On another they are great for the entertainment value. Either way you look at it these are a great collection to have, share and enjoy with those around you.

Larry has many rolls that he has played over the years. So with this play set you will be able to change his outfits and let him relive some of those rolls.

 

There are a lot of songs and music that have been shared in Veggie Tales. But there are three that I have enjoyed more than the others. And here they are for you to also enjoy.

The Bunny Song - There are actually two versions of this song. However the original is still the best.

Oh No What We Gonna Do - A nice duet.

My Baby Elf - Silly songs with elves.

Veggies are usually a side dish. But not in this case. They are the main course. And like them your comments can also be a head liner here.

      I hadn't heard of the VeggieTales but I'm sure my granddaughter would love them, she likes to sing along and dance to TV shows. I like kids shows that are also entertaining for adults, the whole family can have fun together. Thanks for introducing me to the VeggieTales!

      My older sons used to enjoy watching these, and they used to sing the songs all the time.
