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 The Incredible Singing Christmas Tree?
"Keep rocking; don't stop!" Jan 15, 2007
As another reviewer indicated, this CD is great fun. We loaded it into our iPod on a whim and it fast became our favorite Christmas record last year. There's a good mix of traditional Christmas music, new songs, and laugh-out-loud Veggie banter. The "telephone game" exchange which brings about the fall of a Christmas tree is hysterical. "Keep rocking; don't stop!"
Great Fun Oct 19, 2005
The Incredible Singing Tree is the latest release from BigIdea's Veggie Tales. As the first song "O Christmas Tree" gets underway, the plot of this Christmas tale becomes evident. The Veggies are looking for a Christmas "Star" to be the top of their singing Christmas Tree for the Christmas Eve production. The judge, Bob, has three "consultants" Madame Blueberry, Mr. Lunt, and Archibald Asparagus. The following eight songs are sung by various contestants in this "star search." `Puppy Love' is sung by Miss Achmetha--previously known for singing `Lost Puppies' in Esther. `The Friendly Beasts' are sung by "mixed vegetables." `Jingle Ka-Ching' is a commercial interruption sung by Mr. Lunt and Mr. Nezzer--paid for by the Nezzer toy company of course. `The Battling Kings' shows the rivalry between three French peas and three pirates who have decided to do something--sing "We Three Kings" for the production. `Silent Night' is sung by Petunia. `Christmas Sizzle Boy' is sung by the Boyz in the Sink. `Candy Line Blues' is sung by a blind lemon. With the end of that song, however, the mood shifts from finding the "star" of the play to working together to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas. Junior Asparagus' song `Was He A Boy Like Me?' brings our judges to tears as they realize they should not be fighting over who is best. `What My Father Did On Christmas Eve' is sung by Merche.
The remaining five songs are mostly medleys of traditional Christmas songs: Here We Come A-Caroling/ Ding Dong Merrily on High, What Child Is This/ The First Noel, Hark the Harold Angels Sing/ Angels We Have Heard On High, Joy To The World, and For Unto Us A Child Is Born. The final song, a bonus song, is It's About Love is sung by Wynonna.
The Incredible Singing Christmas Tree is great because it's fun and entertaining. If you like Veggies, you'll like hearing the Veggies sing Christmas songs. True, not all Veggies sing with perfect pitch--especially Miss Achmetha--but you can't beat their exuberance!
Another Fun Veggie Holiday Treat Sep 28, 2005
The VeggieTales gang is getting ready to put on a Christmas spectacular - a singing Christmas tree. They just need to decide who gets to be the star on top. While Bob will make the ultimate decision, he wants the help of some judges - Archibald, Madame Blueberry, and Mr. Lunt, who wants to be the snarly judge everyone loves to despise. Everyone wants the job, including Miss Achmetha, who is still hung up on puppies; the Boyz in the Sink; and Blind Lemon Lincoln. And, in the funniest song on here, the Peas and the Pirates fight over who should sing "We Three Kings."
I was a bit concerned since I just loved their first Christmas CD if this would live up to it. I'm happy to report it's just as silly and fun as the first one. The second half stays more on the series side with the focus on familiar Christmas songs. There are lots of new songs or song parodies as well, including three new outstanding songs, "Was He a Boy Like Me?" "What My Father Did on Christmas Eve," and "It's About Love."
This is another Christmas CD that kids and parents will love because it is truly funny. It might be a fight to see who can wear this one out first.
