Veggie Tales presents Noah's Ark (DVD review & GIVEAWAY)

My boys and I got the opportunity to watch the new Veggie Tales DVD, "Noah's Ark." The first thing I noticed was that Bob and Larry look....different. Weird. They have no eye lids anymore and Larry's coloring is more realistic rather than monochromatic. To me, it makes them look more childish like this show is for babies, which it's not. Maybe I just don't like change or think, 'if it's not broke, don't fix it.'

The movie itself was good. Shem (Noah's son) comes home from his honeymoon to find his family building an ark, The Ark. He's not so happy about it because it spoils his plans for his future. The DVD is "a lesson in trusting God" and throughout you see if Shem and his family will ultimately trust God through this flood.

I asked my boys what they thought of the new look (which they actually talk about at the beginning, kind of). Squirt didn't seem too big of a fan of it while Moose seemed to hardly notice. He mentioned that it was Veggies in the House, the tv show of Veggie Tales. I'm not sure of that because we haven't seen it, but that's what he said. I guess you'll have to decide for yourself what you think of the new look. I also noticed that some of the voices were different. Again - not broke, don't fix.

Those new/different changes did not affect the quality of the video. They showed a Bible story with characteristic liberties, but made a good point that God's plans are not always our plans but He knows what's best. I love that because it's true.

My boys also loved the new Silly Song with Larry. It's an Easter-type song, "My Golden Egg," and they laughed and loved it and wanted to do the sing-a-long in the bonus features. I thought the song was silly but I haven't liked the last few Silly Songs with Larry in other episodes either. Maybe I'm just too old now.

I was thinking the same thing about how they looked, as the boys and I are getting ready to a Veggie Tales board game. We would LOVE to add another Veggie Tales movie to our collection. It's great to be able to watch a movie with your kids that truly has a great take away message.

I thought the same thing when I saw the new Veggies in the House series on Netflix. It does look very different. Kimberlyannlang@gmail.com
