Product Details

Product Description


If you want some morality tossed lightly with education in the videos your children watch, then this is a series for you. These Christian vegetables with a hip sensibility (sample dialogue: "You are so early-'90s.") play out a Batman-meets-Back to the Future scenario when a young asparagus tells his dad a lie to get out of trouble. That lie, embodied by a space alien, grows until it threatens the entire vegetable village, provoking Larry the Cucumber to heed the signal in the sky and hop into his flying Larrymobile designed by the eccentric and fallible inventor Alfred Asparagus. Action, music, and a Jerry-Springer-style deconstruction at the end with a blink-and-you-missed-it reference to God make for a half hour of involving and wholesome entertainment. --Kimberly Heinrichs

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Veggietales Best! May 29 2004
Okay, you HAVE to buy this! It's such a great way to teach a child about lying, but making it in such a way that they don't forget it. Just telling a child not to lie sometimes doesn't quite drive the message home, but Larryboy sure does! The only thing that might be slightly objectionable here is when the huge space alien lie tries to eat Larry and is actually in his mouth. My little guy got upset about that part because he loves Larry. Other than that, we laughed ourselves silly! I got this because my child decided to tell a lie and I wanted to make sure he actually understood what could happen when lies are told. Thanks to Veggietales for making a great lesson so much more interesting and unforgettable. We now have a Larrymobile, complete with suction cup ears, and Archibald and Larryboy. Great toy! So, if you want to laugh until you cry while teaching a VERY important lesson, grab this one. It's just nothing short of awesome! Just beware, I'm now going around most of the day talking like Archibald and being asked such questions as "what are you going to make the Larrymobile do now, Archibald? What are you inventing? Can I help?" It gets difficult trying to imitate all those voices all day! Sure is a bunch of fun! Now the Larrymobile has a pizza machine on it so Larryboy won't get hungry saving Bumblyburg, and also a bed so that he can take a nap when he's tired. The imagination just never stops with these videos!

5.0 out of 5 stars A really good story with good moral! April 9 2002
By RiMi
Format:VHS Tape
This movie happens in Brumblyburg when a little alien from outer space lands. Meanwhile, Junior Asparagus, his friend Laura Carrot, and his toy bear are playing tea party but there is not enough plates for the bear. Junior Asparagus tries to get his father's precious bowling plate, and ends up breaking it into pieces. When Junior is left alone, the alien goes to Junior, saying that his name is "Fib." Fib tells him to tell a little fib, but at first Junior refuses, saying that it's a lie. Fib says that a fib and a lie is different so Junior tells his father that Laura broke it. When Junior turns around to see Fib again, Fib had turned a little larger than before!
They take a walk and Junior meets a friend who says that Laura was in BIG trouble and Laura says that Junior broke it. Junior says that Laura was telling the truth that she didn't break it, however Junior next put the blame on Lenny, Laura's little brother. When Junior sees Fib again, Fib had turned much larger and even had feet! Fib says that he has always been like this, so Junior keeps walking...
Soon Laura, Lenny, and Junior's friend march up angrily to Junior, saying that he lied. Junior is about to say that a monster made him lie. They all think that he is telling another lie but when they hear the booming voice of the now-turned-giant-monster, they believe and run away. Junior is captured by the alien and Brumblyburg's famous hero, Larry-Boy, comes to the rescue.
Larry-Boy is as well captured by the alien, and there is only one person who could conquer the alien. Who? Sorry-can't tell you because you'll have to watch it! This story has a good moral-tell the truth always because the truth will get you free while telling lies will bring trouble. I enjoyed this movie and I think you will enjoy it too.

Larry the Cucumber and Bob the Tomato are again hosting another VeggieTales video, this time giving a lesson in telling the truth (John 8:32b "The truth will set you free"). The story begins in the small town of Brumblyburgwhere Jerry and Jimmy are 'supposed' to be monitoring the area for aliens. And when an 'unidentified object' lands, it's up to Larry-Boy (aka Larry the Cucumber) to find out what it is. But Junior Asparagus is the first one to find it; it's an alien called Fib. And when Junior gets into some trouble, Fib gives him the perfect solution; to tell a little lie which of course wouldn't hurt anybody! Junior soon finds out that his little friend can become a HUGE problem! It's up to Larry-Boy and his Larry-Boy Mobile to save the day... if everything goes well...
Totally hilarious, I find this Veggie Tale to be thoroughly enjoying. With great Christian values, they're perfect for kids, teenagers, and even have adults interested with the wry humor, catchy and fun songs, and terrific animation and plot.
This tape is especially hilarious, from the very first part where Larry-Boy explains to Bob how times are changing and that he'll be 'left behind'. Then comes the joke about 'The Invasions of the Cow-Snatchers" which just cracked me up! Then the way they make fun of batman with the light in the sky... and I could go on! I especially love it when Larry-Boy's 'butler' yells to the computer, "BOOT!" Then of course Larry-Boy himself is so funny, with his 'super suction-cups'. The world premier of "Larry-Boy's Music Video" is simply hilarious and very catchy. I keep singing, "Lean, mean, green machine. Larry-boy!" The song is sung fantastically by Christian music artist Nicole Mullen. And I mean it when I say she sang fantastically, she has a terrific voice!
If you liked this VeggieTale, don't miss out on "King George and the Ducky", "Lyle the Kindly Viking", and "The Ultimate Silly Songs Countdown", three of which are my favorites.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for kids, fabulous for adults Dec 2 1999
Format:VHS Tape
This one, of the whole Veggie Tales series, is my personal favorite. There's a lot here to love. First, it teaches youngsters a valuable lesson about telling the truth both in its wholesome story and in the larger metaphor that first you control the lie but in time the lie controls you. Second, it's amazingly clever in its dialogue and concept and design, from the Larrymobile with its suction cup wheels to the way Larry-Boy, always the consummate nerd, screams "I--AM--THAT--HERO! " But best of all, adults can watch this video and be entertained as well as the kids, as the creators gleefully spoof Batman and superheros in general, bad sci-fi monster flicks, the Franklin Mint, pop culture and, in the final segment, music videos. All the Veggie Tales series are very funny, but this one makes you laugh so hard you'll have to rewind it in spots to re-watch the stuff you missed while recovering from cracking up. This deserves to be a classic. If the gang from Big Idea had never made another video, we could remain forever grateful for this one. Of course, then we never could have heard "The Hairbrush Song"...
