"My family and I are big Veggie Tales fans so when I saw that Big Ideas had released a new Larryboy video, I bought it immediately.
I was disappointed in it. The characters look different and I agree with the reviewer who wrote that it lacked the same wholesome qualities that its predecessors had. Though better than most cartoons on the air now, I wish Big Ideas had stuck with its original format. My boys love it, but the spiritual reasons for not staying angry were weak, something that was always strongly emphasized in previous videos. Overall, I would recommend this video only if they had purchased other Veggie Tales movies. I would not recommend it as a first choice."

"Larry Boy finaaly gets his own series! Working as the janitor at the Daily Bumble *he wasn't qualified for other positions* where he can keep an eye on the town. Several favorites are back: Bob, the editor in chief, Jr, an reporter, and Larry's faithful butler Archibald. A whole produce truckload of new characters arrive, among them: a new girl cuke reporter, a matronly fungi inventor, and the wise master Bok Choy, who teaches the superhero class at Bumblyber Community College.The villians this round are Awful Alvin and his sidekick, Lampy. *Lampy is one of my favorite new characters* Alvin's evil plan is to relase angry eyebrows on the city, making the people, er, vegtables hold on to thier anger. Can LarryBoy withstand the attack? Can he defeat Alvin and Lampy? *after the main feature, the short "Fly by Might" is shown. Standard Tom & Jerry fare*In the special DVD features, there are interviews, kareoke, character development, and other fun diversions.Mike and Phil have another winner with The Angry Eyeballs. I recomend this for ages 6-126. *Even teens like me love the Cucumber of Steel!*"

"While I understand what some people are saying about the style, as other reviewers have noted there was a reason for the style change. Big Idea is trying to go down a path where the videos can be produced more quickly so that kids (parents) have a greater variety of Christian alternatives to choose from.My 3-year-old son LOVES this video. He's big into superheros right now, and Larryboy isn't the normal angst-ridden fare with a terrible dark side. And he has good moral lessons to teach, as well as showing that even if you forget or make a mistake, you can still make it right by listening to God.My 6-year-old daughter likes it, too. And how often does that happen?!Good family fare, unless you don't want your kids to watch the same program 2-4 times in a row."

"Installment #2 in the Larryboy Cartoon Adventure Series is truly terrific! The villains ("The Alchemist" and "Mother Pearl") are brilliant baddies, whose ... scheme teaches us that our own ego can be our undoing. The look of the animation is great -- this is some of the best classic, "cel" TV animation I've seen in recent years. My kids love the characters "Herbert" and "Wally", and have even tried to reenact their "Operation Jellybelly Floppy Woppy" maneuver. Make sure your carpets are scotchguarded. My family can't wait for Larryboy #3 ("The Yodelnapper") to come out next month!"
