I actually have not yet heard Veggie Tunes 1, sorry! 🙂 But this one is very good! This was my first exposure to Veggie Tales…which are Christian computer-generated vegetable characters. Starring Bob the Tomato and Larry the Cucumber, these guys are just hysterical!!
For the most part it enforces basic family values that we all want for our kids–honesty, loyalty, kindness, trustworthiness, selflessness, etc. They do quote scriptures and they do refer to Bible stories, just to warn those who would want to be warned of this. Some of their videos are more preachy than others. I do think the older episodes are milder and they seemed to get more preachy with their newer stuff.
But all in all, from this non-Christian’s perspective, they are pretty cool vegetables! And the songs are just too fun to pass up! Especially the “Silly Songs with Larry”, which are always not at all religious. Songs like “I Love My Lips” and “The Pirates Who Don’t Do Anything” will have you rolling! The writers are just brilliant!
