Product Description

Amazon.ca

Another winning video from the VeggieTales folk. To teach Larry the Cucumber about self-esteem, Bob the Tomato tells the story, slightly renamed, of David and Goliath. Jr. Asparagus plays the young man who wants to prove himself and will face the towering pickle. These adorable tales, brightly animated and containing bouncy songs, teach Christian-lite values in an entertaining way. Telling a single story (instead of the normal two), this 30-minute video goes on a bit too long, but it does contain the funniest entry in the "Silly Songs with Larry" series: Love My Lips. --Doug Thomas

I just spent a delightful day watching this video, over, and over, and over. My Granddaughter, Brooke, age 3 knows the story of David and Goliath by heart ! She has become a theologian. What an incredible video idea. Brooke also knows the other Bible Stories, as she has a collection of the Veggie Tales. Her Mother and Father sing the songs and are also learning the stories with her; just in case they had not known them before, or needed to be reminded again. What a great idea ! You will fall in love with all the Veggie Tale Characters who "act their hearts out" making the Bible come alive in your homes. Hats off to these wonderful people who bring us this worthwhile project ! Who said "the world is going to hell in a handbasket" ? They just might be wrong, when little children are growing up learning the truth of the scripture acted out in a great and entertaining way ! Grandparents need not call and ask for gift ideas any longer. . .just give them Veggies ! A great diet !

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Veggie Tales!! April 9 2002
Format:VHS Tape
My brother, a great Amazon.com reviewer, gave this one to my son a few years ago. I thought Veggie Tales was just another [inexpensive] Christian attempt at fun, but with this video, I was convinced otherwise. I think I watched it more in the beginning than my son did. I also started to carry the products in the bookstore I manage. My family now owns most of the collection.
This is a take off on the famous Bible story of David and Goliath, but done in excellent humor that is easy for kids to understand. All the "actors" are vegetables. This has also helped my kids to eat their vegetable. The neat thing about Veggie Tales is that you are never too young or too old for them. The message is great and the way it is presented is outstanding. The kids like the story, and the adults get all the "one liner" jokes through the entire thing.
If you have never seen a Veggie Tale, I would recommend you start your collection with this video. It gets an A+ rating in my book!

5.0 out of 5 stars My husband liked this as much as the kids did! March 12 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Dave and the Giant Pickle is, you guessed it, the story of King David and Goliath. Junior Asparagus is young David, who shows that he is faithful and trusting in God, and in so doing saves the nation of Isreal even though he is "just a little guy". This story gives kids the message that "even little guys can do big things", and that all things are possible when you trust in God. This story also has one of the best Larry's Silly Songs with Larry singing about how he "Loves His Lips!" Very funny! My one year old daughter loves ALL her Veggie Tales, and my husband loved this one too! Veggie Tales are a great alternative to regular Saturday morning tv packed with advertising and inapproriate messages to kids.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great stuff! May 17 2000
Format:VHS Tape
If you've never seen VeggieTales, you need to. Whatever age you are. Like only a few things in the past (Rocky & Bullwinkle comes to mind) the humor here appeals to kids and to grownups. Some of it is clearly over the kids' heads -- like the philistine peas, a ripoff of The Frenchman in Monty Python's Holy Grail -- but there is plenty for the kids to love.
This is my favorite VeggieTales video thus far, and I've seen all the way through Madame Blueberry. I like that they tell one story instead of two short ones, and there are some great funny moments in here. David's sheep just can't stay upright. And Goliath wears boxing gloves.
And the silly song is beautiful. Usta!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for all ages! Nov. 21 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I had to watch this movie in my school's religion class. I'm in highschool right now, so you would seem to think that most teenagers would find this movie dull (or pretend it's dull). When we were sitting in class I saw smiles on their faces, but I know (including myself, that's why I'm anonymous) that I would NEVER actually admit that a movie targeted at younger children was entertaining. So after all of this, I conclude that this movie entertains both young ones, teenagers, and adults (the few teachers in the room were laughing too). This movie deserves a 5 star because not many movies can entertain all ages. Oh, and another great movie--- Toy Story and Toy Story 2

5.0 out of 5 stars Le encantó a mi niña de 3 años... Aug. 15 2001
By O2
Format:VHS Tape
Vivo en El Salvador y tengo una niña de 3 años, compré el video para enseñarlo en la escuela dominical, mi sorpresa fué que al verlo yo en la casa mi niña de 3 años se interesó en el video y me preguntaba que era lo que decían los vegetales (ella no habla inglés). A medida se desarrollaba el video yo le contaba la historia.... El dia siguiente ella me pidió ver el video nuevamente y a medida ella veía el video, se lo contaba a su primito.... NO IMPORTA EL IDIOMA, las historias de la Biblia llegan al corazón, no al entendimiento....
Ahora estoy pensando en comprar otro video para la escuela dominical, porque mi niña no quiere soltar el que actualmente tengo.

5.0 out of 5 stars best child attention holder there is March 19 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
We recieved the video as a gift from a pastor friend. Our four year old son just loves the songs, especially Larry's silly song about his lips. My wife and I catch ourselves humming the songs during the day. I've watched the video at least 15 times and still laugh every time. Our 14 month old daughter sits for the entire video. She loves little Dave and the sheep. These guys have a great idea for teaching morals and values. Keep up the good work, and we agree with other reviews, concentrate on the bible stories. It's refreshing to see efforts made to let kids escape this decade's down falls in morality and values! We will be buying more of these.

One of the early VeggieTales, this one is true to Biblical principles and unabashed about being designed to teach them to kids.

This stays true to the VeggieTales standards. The only thing I don't like about it is that it's only 30 min long. Read more
