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: Duke And The Great Pie War?
Two great stories served Veggie Style! Jul 6, 2005
They did it again! Here's another Veggie Tales destinated to be a classic! The whole thing is hilarious from beginning to end. The first story is an interesting take on Miriam and the baby Moses. This version addresses how Miriam overcomes her initial jealousy and resentment at the new baby in the house and learns to love her new baby brother. All the characters are great. I got a kick out of the princess who rescues Moses from the water, but I won't give it away. We then take a break as Larry attempts to sing the blues. He gets some expert coaching from Blind Lincoln Lemon, but to no avail. Larry is just too happy to sing the blues. Finally, the main feature at the end is about Duke and the Great Pie War. This is a veggie version of the story of Ruth. I loved the new character Sweet Petunia who plays Ruth. The humor reminded me of a Christian kid's version of Monty Python. Very off the wall in the best Veggie Tales tradition. My toddlers loved this DVD, but I think I enjoyed it more than they did!
