(5 out of 5 stars)
"this first in the Veggie series was produced on an absolute shoe-string...copies were being made on an as-needed basis as orders came in, and the animation shows that. but! you can't go wrong with three great songs (God is bigger than the boogie-man, the water buffalo song, and oh no!) that stick in your head. you will find yourself singing them just as often as you catch your kids singing them.
the "monsters" jumping out of junior's drawers and the visit by frankencelery allow for a look at night-time fears in a way that children can understand and enjoy without becoming too frightened. telling kids their fears are taken care of by God because He's big and will protect them and the way that bob explains what those scary things really are should help youngsters to learn to overcome those bedtime nasties. singing the God is bigger song with them as part of a routine at night can help to reinforce this message.
i don't have any kids and my nephew got me hooked on veggietales when he showed me jonah (still my favourite movie, but i think my favourite "short" story is either king george and the ducky or little joe.) my nephew was 18 at the time, so don't write these off as simply cute children's videos. you may very well find them to be a great addition to your own video library (i own almost all of them.) these are stories with a God-centered message that is not terribly blatant, offer a Biblical truth, and entertain all at the same time.
as a maiden effort, this video gets 5-stars from me. i wish it would have been around when i was a child and afraid of the dark. i know i couldn't have produced anything this entertaining on my pc and with only two or three other people's assistance.
oh, btw larry--i'm still waiting for my water buffalo!"
