Product Description

In this Veggie Tales installment based on the Biblical story of Gideon, Bob, Larry, and all of their farm-grown friends are forced to defend their garden against an undefeated army of over 30,000 warrior pickles. With an army comprised of only six carrots and six peas, Gideon faces almost certain defeat. But there's more to fighting a war than pure might alone, so there may be hope for the peace-loving vegetable pals after all. As an added bonus, Archibald Asparagus stars as George Muller in a story that shows just how far a little faith can go in times of need

5.0 out of 5 stars Time to Trust God Nov. 7 2006
By Mark Baker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
The newest entry in the Veggie Tales series teaches us to trust God with two stories about His faithfulness.

First up is the story of George Mueller (Archibald Asparagus). This real man trusted God to provide everything for the orphanages he ran. This is the short segment of the DVD, and the focus is on the famous story of the morning the orphanage ran out of food. Mr. Mueller still had the kids sit down for breakfast, thanked God for the food, and then there was a knock at the door....

The main segment is the Biblical story of Gideon (Larry the Cucumber). He's more comfortable marching in a band then leading anything. Still, God calls him to defeat the invading army of pickles with no weapons and the smallest army you ever saw. Is Gideon crazy? Or will God do what He says He will do?

I don't know how the guys at Big Idea do it, but this is yet another DVD that kids and parents alike will love. The message is clear and the stories are entertaining. The first segment could have been a little funnier, but the main feature more then makes up for it. I laughed multiple times at the jokes inserted into the familiar story of Gideon.

Adding to the fun, the Pirates have become bored from doing nothing, so they try to host the show. That leaves Bob free to do a silly song written by the French Peas. All is going well with "Ukulele Karaoke" until the words get shredded by a fan. Then the fun really starts.

This is yet another strong entry in the fun franchise. Whether this is your first or not, you'll be sure to be entertained and challenged by the stories here.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Pirates Start Pirating. Oct. 25 2006
By tvtv3 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
In this episode of VeggieTales, Bob finds that Larry has assisted The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything in taking over the show. They've discovered that doing nothing gets really boring and are ready to actually start doing something. After much pleading, Bob finally acquiesces, and the Pirates tell a short story about George Muller, a man who trusted in God for everything and started several orphanages. The Pirates believe the show to be finished, but Larry reminds them that normally they have a Silly Song followed by another story. At first no one has a song, but then the French Peas appear with a tune they've been working on for some time. They take over the "2nd Set" and recruit Bob into singing a song with some dancing "turtles" in a segment called "Karaoke Ukulele With Bob". After this impromptu gig, the feature story begins: the tale of Gideon. In the VeggieTale version, Gideon is a tuba-playing marching band member who plays marching and pep music for his younger brothers' football team. An angel of the Lord appears to Gideon and tells him God has chosen him to lead the Israelite army (which doesn't exist) into battle against the invading Midianites. The story of how Gideon testing of God, the selection of the army, and how God uses the Israelites to defeat the Midianites is pretty much intact, but altered slightly with some VeggieTale humor (for instance, instead of drinking water, Gideon's army drinks slushies instead). At the end of the episode Bob congratulates the Pirates on a job well done, but then is informed by Pa Grape that they have bigger plans: starring in a movie of their own. This is the beginning of the buildup of the buzz for the planned 2008 release of a Pirates Who Don't Do Anything motion picture.

GIDEON TUBA WARRIOR comes off as pretty standard VeggieTales' fare. Except for the Pirates hijacking the show and having Bob sing an unplanned karaoke song, the episode stays close to the VeggieTale format. I played in the marching band in high school and I enjoyed that take on the tale of Gideon--strange as it seems it fits perfectly into the stories of the humble Israelite warrior. Kids will enjoy watching this episode as well as fans of the series. It's not the best VeggieTale, but it is a good one.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Story with an amazing great Lesson! Dec 19 2006
By D. J Svoboda - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Now here is a great story that can really help to learn to trust God. The story of George Mueller talks about a true story about this great man who trusted God for everything.He never gave up and he never lost faith. Gideon is an awesome story as well. One good and great part of the story is that we learn that God never lets us down and we can trust him with the outcome. The karaoke with bob was also a wonderful treat. This is a Veggietales story that will delight the hearts of children and their families for a long time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Pleased Jan. 15 2007
By Gary Cunningham - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This is the best Veggie Tales movie in a while. Great storyline and this one seemed to get back to way the Veggie Tales started. More Biblical than the latest.

Great movie and great job.

5.0 out of 5 stars Veggie-larious Jan. 26 2007
By Christian Allen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything have taken over the show; but with little production experience, Bob has to steer them in the right direction. I won't give away any spoilers, just say that Big Idea has consistently delivered quality entertainment for the whole family and this offering is no exception. A must for your Veggie collection.
