More About VeggieTales
VeggieTales is an American series of children's computer animated films featuring anthropomorphic vegetables in stories conveying moral themes based on Christianity. They frequently retell Biblical stories, sometimes anachronistically reframed, and include humorous references to pop culture in many different eras by putting Veggie spins on them (e.g., classic literature, TV shows, etc.). The series was developed by Big Idea Entertainment.
VeggieTales was created by Phil Vischer and Mike Nawrocki, who also provide many of the voices. Originally released in direct-to-video format, the series debuted on December 21, 1993. From September 9, 2006 to September 7, 2009, VeggieTales appeared on NBC's children's programming block qubo in a repackaged and edited format. In 2009, Netflix made many VeggieTales videos (in their uncut, original formats) and feature films available via their video streaming service. Big Idea has also published VeggieTales books and music CDs and branded items such as toys, clothing, and garden seeds for vegetables and flowers.

Reviews - What do customers think about Audio CD-Veggie Tales: Bob & Larry Sing The 70's?
**Fun Music Jan 12, 2007
I purchased this for my 24 year old daughter who still loves Veggie Tales songs. Christmas Day the whole family was singing along with the songs from the 70s. It seems that you are never too old for Veggie Tales.
Great tunes even when sung by the Veggie Tales Jan 9, 2007
OK - it IS the Veggie Tales so it's annoying if you have no tolerance of them. But IF you have succumbed to them for your kids' sake, this is a great CD of the music that we listened to in the 70s. Obviously it's the more wholesome songs of that era but it gets our whole family dancing. I love the fact that it introduces REAL music instead of "where is my hairbrush".... if I sing it at my desk at work, no one questions my sanity.
Great CD for our crew - 8, 6 and 2 1/2 year old girls. Of the 3 CDs my daughter received for her birthday, this is the one played first and often over and over.

What's there not to love? The only reason that I give 4 stars instead of 5 is that some of the versions are hard to understand if you don't know the origional. This is a small problem for my 3 year old. However, with Daddy singing them with her and Mommy rolling her eyes in the corner, she gets the idea!

My husband and I have been veggie tales fans for years. Now that we have a newborn we have an excuse to flush out our collection. This is our newest CD and all three of us LOVE it! We highly recomend it to any veggie tales fan for "Saturday morning fun"! We're listening to the CD as I am writing this, and my husband is dancing around the room with our little guy! Enjoy!

Join your favorite vegetables as they 'celebrate' with fellow Veggie Jimmy Gourd (aka Dr. Jiggle) at the roller rink disco party. With the playlist including 12 songs (including Veggie dialogue), and lasting a little over 47 minutes...it is well worth the cost of admission :)
Songs include: Funky Town, Locomotion, Lean On Me, Car Wash, Proud Mary, Jesus Is Just Alright, You Are The Sunshine of My Life, Crocodile Rock, The Lion Sleeps Tonight, I Just Want To Celebrate, I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing, We Are Family.
#1 Funky Town, the longest song on the album, is 5:28. Sung by a medley of veggies and featuring lively banter as well as lots of electronic noise...while it can be tedious with so much repetition...it is fun at heart. 4 out of 5.
#2 Locomotion sung by Junior and a medley of kids and veggies. While I must admit the original never thrilled me, Junior is my favorite veggie...so it's tolerable if not enjoyable at times. Archibald particularly gets into this song... 4 out of 5.
#3 Lean On Me. Sung by Bob & Larry...along with other Veggies and kids on different verses. I liked Mr. Nezzer singing the deep parts. it's a nice song...4 out of 5.
#4 Car Wash -- Larry can't wait to talk about his 'new job' at the car wash. 4.5 out of 5
#5 Proud Mary -- my least favorite on the album...sung by Mr. Lunt & Mr. Nezzer...among others. 3 out of 5
#6 Jesus is Just Alright...a nice fun song...4.5/5 I really enjoy the 'slow' and soulful part where Junior's singing ability is given a chance to shine :)
#7 You Are the Sunshine of My Life...5/5...I love the part with the French peas in this song...although a medley does contribute throughout the song...including some significant portions by Junior.
#8 Crocodile Rock ....5/5...by far one of my favorites on the album. Sung primarily by Archibald Asparagus and Junior...Junior ends up stealing the show.
#9 The Lion Sleeps Tonight.... 5/5 This song is without a doubt my absolute favorite from the album. It is just too much fun.
#10 I Just Want To Celebrate...4/5
#11 I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing -- 5/5/ I might have lied about my favorite song. This one is just so good...so sweet...so innocent.
