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 Veggie Tales: Christian Hit Music?
Great CD! Apr 17, 2009
We really like this CD. The songs are up to date with our beloved veggies belting them out.
Why so depressing? Feb 13, 2009
This is an odd CD for Veggie Tales. Many of the songs are about the darkest night of the soul and the great feelings of unworthiness and angst that people feel, but how God lifts us up and is our only hope. This is fine stuff for adults but not appropriate for young children.
The songs themselves sound like what teenagers go through......but how many teenagers are listening to VT? There are some bright spots on the album. It leads with a great rendition of "My Father's House" and there is a wonderful duet with Amy Grant. But most of the album I won't even let my boy listen to....even though he thinks its funny.....as I don't want him exposed to such pain and suffering yet.
Not their best effort Jun 9, 2008
I like Veggie Tales and I like Christian Hit Music, so I figured this would be fun. Some of the songs work really well, especially when the original artist is singing along. The way this CD fails is the quality of the instrumental tracks. They are too good! It makes the Veggies sound like bad karaoke.
The Core Audience Might Like It Apr 3, 2008
VeggieTales has always been known for their music. For this release, they decide to cover classics from adult Christian music. They cover a range of styles from the rock of "Big House" and "Meant to Live" to the pop of "Baby, Baby" and the R&B of "I'll Take You There."
The one interesting thing is there is no story linking the songs together. Each song stands on its own, with the occasional dialog during the song. Some of it works, like Pa Grape playing his accordion during Mr. Lunt's moody song "Flood." At times it doesn't work, like Bob telling Larry and Peter Furler they are doing a good job during "Shine," Archibald's talking during "Dive," and the French Peas complaining about how loud their song, "Meant to Live" is.
What is amazing is that most of these songs sound exactly like their original versions. If I didn't know better, I'd say they used the original tracks. The only exception is "Smellin' Coffee." For some reason, they tried to make it rockier then the folk original. Trust me, it doesn't work.
Adding to the fun (and there is plenty of fun here), four of the artists covered show up to help out. Audio Adrenaline, newsboys, Steven Curtis Chapman, and Amy Grant all sing on their songs, and Steven and Amy interact a little with the veggies, and those moments are fun.
Many of these songs do work. Of course, I like the originals. And I guess that's my main reason for not liking this disc. While listening to Larry and company singing these songs is fun once or twice, if I want to listen to them, I'd rather listen to the original versions. I can see kids enjoying having "their" versions of some of their parent's songs. And parents will enjoy having some adult music their kids will enjoy listening to. But for those without kids, there is really little need to pick up this disc.
You'll Sing Along Too Mar 27, 2008
I'll admit, not every song is wonderful on this one but it's still worth the listen. The best is that they sing along with some of the artists on their own songs. I wish the entire CD was filled with the artists instead of just 4 songs. Still most of the songs are very good and fun to listen to.
