My kids have always enjoyed watching Veggie Tales. If you’re a fan yourself (or your kids are), then you are probably familiar with my kids’ favorite character, LarryBoy. Of course, LarryBoy is a super hero that is always looking for ways to stop those pesky aliens (The Fib), large weeds that talk (The Rumor Weed), and controlling apples (The Bad Apple). Each time Larry goes on an adventure, it always end with an important lesson from the Bible. I have to admit, my kids really have learned so much from Veggie Tales! So, when we found out that Larry Boy was back at it, this time with a group of other super heroes (aka: League of Incredible Vegetables) I knew my kids would be happy.
This story takes place again in Bumblyburg with Larry Boy and his assistant, Alfred trying to stop Dr. Flurry and his three penguins from stealing the fear-dar. Since its such a large job, Alfred turns to other super heroes for help. The cast is a good one including:
- Bob as “Thingamabob”
- Mr. Lunt as “S-Cape”
- Petunia Rhubarb as “Vogue”
- Junior Asparagus as “Ricochet
It was a bright and sunny day in Bumblyburg…until Dr. Flurry came to town. This chillin’ villain wants to freeze the whole city…in fear! It’s a job to big for LarryBoy alone, so he turns to the “The League of Incredible Vegetables” to help save the town from Dr. Flurry’s icy grip! When it seems like they’re all moments from the deep freeze, will the League remember to turn to One who is bigger than all our fears? Includes a brand new theme song and music video from Grammy-nominated and Dove Award winning group, The Newsboys!
Verse: “When I am afraid, I will put my trust in You.” Psalm 56:3
This story is a good one, tackling “fear” which is a big one in our house right now. Not only do the League of Incredible Vegetables handle each of their own fears, they do it in an action-packed event that keeps the kids (and you!) at the edge of your seats. Of course what would be a new Veggie Tales without a Silly Song? This time its the “Supper Hero” and its a funny one.
My kids absolutely loved this show. They were a little leary when I first put it in, but once they realized it was a new Larry Boy adventure, they didn’t move an inch! We received our copy on Saturday and they’ve seen it probably 20 times already. They love it that much. Get out there and buy it for your kids, too! Its available at Christian retailers on Saturday, October 13th and all other DVD retailers on Tuesday, October 16th. If you can’t wait- go check out their new interactive site: veggietales.com/league
