Bob and Larry were always favorites in our house, especially with my twins. I can’t even tell you how many times my little guys watched them and the rest of the VeggieTales cast on Lord of the Beans, The Pirates Who Don’t Do Anything, or just about any other VeggieTales movie. Larry’s Silly Songs often played while we were in the car, I put them on to keep my kiddos happy while I made dinner or just to inspire some smiles.
In case you are not familiar, most VeggieTales movies are cute little parodies of popular films, bringing a message that is not soon forgotten. Each movie contains original music and a valuable life lesson that kiddos need to learn. Oftentimes even I benefit from the message on selflessness, kindness, honesty, or forgiveness.
I could always count on VeggieTales to be good, clean, wholesome fun. And I still can. Beauty and the Beet, released last month, was inspired by the story of Beauty and the Beast. While not at all similar in storyline, apart from learning to love the unlovely, this charming movie, starring Kellie Pickler, is a wonderful story of unconditional love. And the music is fantastic!
VeggieTales in the House shows what Bob and Larry are like in their own lives when they aren’t acting, like in all these movies we love so much. This series has a slightly new look, due in part to a new production team and new technology, but it’ll be the same Bob and Larry with a fresh appeal to the younger crowd.
Timmy and I are hooked after just watching the VeggieTales in the House official trailer and getting a sneak peek at one of the first episodes. In fact, a flood of great memories came back and I got goosebumps when I heard Bob and Larry give their sign off – “God made you special. And He loves you very much.” We can’t wait to see more!
