When I was a newlywed, I couldn't wait to have kids and show them Veggie Tales. The first time I watched a Veggie Tales video, I was with my nephew. I'm not sure who had a better time, him or me. What fun it was to sing along with the bouncy, clever songs and catch the humor that was meant to entertain the adults while he was enthralled by everything about the movie.
About four years later, I had a chance to show my own kids. Boy, we had some catching up to do because by then several movies were made. My favorite to this day is "King George and the Ducky."
Big Idea Entertainment LLC has released their latest video, NOAH’S ARK and it's pretty darn cute. It certainly lives up to the videos we have seen in the past. Now, I haven't shown my children this particular video quite yet. I have it on standby for family movie night and I want it to be a surprise. I am confident they will love it as we recently watched CELERY NIGHT FEVER on Netflix and we all cracked up repeatedly watching it.
Here's the scoop from Grace Hill Media:
"Carrots meet cubits as VeggieTales builds an ark filled with fun, adventure and important lessons about trusting God in NOAH’S ARK, its first Bible-themed production in more than four years." NOAH'S ARK stars Wayne Brady and Jaci Velasquez, along with Larry the Cucumber, Bob the Tomato and a whole crew of Veggies.
"In NOAH’S ARK, Shem and Sadie return home from their honeymoon to find that Noah (played by Pa Grape) has begun, at God’s direction, to work on a massive ark, which his wife Naamah (played by Madame Blueberry) and sons Ham (played by Larry) and Japheth (played by Bob) are helping construct before the start of 40 days and 40 nights of rain.
But Shem doesn’t understand Noah’s unshakable faith in God, particularly when animals start arriving two-by-two – while the rain is nowhere to be seen. When the deluge does come, Shem begins to understand Noah’s determination to preserve humanity’s future … and the importance of trusting in God."
There are several memorable moments in this video. My favorite lines from the film is when Shem is encouraged by his brother to help them finish building the ark. "Grab a tool. It's 'hammer-time.' And when Larry whistles to the two piglets ("Bacon" and "Pork Chop") and then says, "Everything is better with Bacon." I can't forget to mention the funny homage to Terminator 2 where the wives of Noah's sons all wield caulking guns filled with tar to repair a few holes in the ark: "Hasta la vista, baby."
