PLUS: �Ever wonder what happened before Humpty cracked? �Humpty (Bob the Tomato) is the mayor of Gooseville, a quiet little town filled with a bunch of lively characters! �From Jack & Jill's missing crayons, to the Three Bears' lawn problems, all the way to Little Bo Peep's lost sheep, Mayor Humpty is literally driven up the wall with this pickled pack of problems! Now far away from the gripes and complaints of his neighbors, Humpty declares "with all these neighbors in need, I'm better helping just me!" �Will all the town's heroines and all the town's men help bring Humpty to his senses again?

Worked fab when doing the 'wise and foolish builder' theme. All the veggie tales are great :) It is not scary but does have the 3 little pigs woven into the story which may bother some. The top corner was damaged when I got it, but it wasn't for a gift so no big deal

I like to show Veggie Tale Movies to my Kids because they are funny, varied, comprehensive, extensive and the stories have an actually meaning.
I would recommend Veggie Tale Movies to all children (and parents:-))

Mixed feelings about this new DVD March 1 2013
By Julieanne at JoyInOurJourney-dotcom - Published on Amazon.com
We enjoyed the first movie selection of the DVD, a combination of The Three Little Pigs nursery rhyme from Mother Goose and the parable Jesus told in the Bible about the builders that built houses on solid rock and on sand. It was typical VeggieTales style, all the way.

The "Silly Song with Larry", one of the pieces you can count on while viewing a VeggieTales DVD, didn't disappoint us, although it might have been a bit odder than normal. :)

The last piece of the video was all about selfishness and helping and serving others. It combined pieces of many Mother Goose nursery rhymes and poems into the video, which could have been very confusing to many children who haven't been read the nursery rhymes.

My girls, however, were not happy about one very obvious part of this movie. The mayor, whom we don't know if he is a paid government employee or an unpaid volunteer, is getting tired of serving his community and dealing with their problems and complaints. He decides to leave and go on vacation, leaving his community in disarray. The final conclusion by him toward the end of the story is that he should be serving his community all the time. Sounds good - at first glance. But the kinds of things he's asked to help with sometimes look just like economic handouts instead of gathering friends together to help solve a problem. My girls noticed this right away and complained about it to us. "Let's give everyone all these handouts and do everything for them so they don't need to work together as a community," grumbled one of our daughters. It's true - most, if not all of the help that is given is offered by the mayor himself, and not as people working together to solve a problem of their own.

You may think we are really reaching far to come to this conclusion, but we all agreed that if the leader in the movie had been a pastor, we would have had entirely different conclusions. However, since everyone in the community was always whining and complaining to the mayor to solve their problems, this bothered us. We're not anti-government, but we also believe in churches helping and serving, and in individuals helping and serving themselves and others, not just relying on the government to do it all for them.

As well, we didn't see anyone in the movie praying and asking God to help them first with their struggles. Instead, they went directly to the mayor first. We personally don't think that the mayor was representing God or Jesus, just in case you wondered. This could have been a great opportunity in the movie to show children how to handle stress and financial difficulties they will encounter.

The Little House That Stood --but kind of wavers March 9 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Veggie Tales has built a solid reputation of using Bible stories or moral themes inspired by scripture to set the stage for whatever lesson the video has set out to teach. Do the creators of Veggie Tales use straight up Bible stories all the time? No. Do they use other types of story telling to get these themes across? Yes. They've used a variety of scenarios, superheroes, and all while weaving in Biblical principles.

Even so, The Little House That Stood crosses into territory which I find uncomfortable.

As a former teacher (and mother), I value the use of Mother Goose nursery rhymes, Aesop's fables, and fairy tales as a method of teaching moral life lessons (because that's their nature and origin of these stories). However, in the case of The Little House That Stood, what I see happening is a combining of these stories with scripture.

As a Christian, I cannot find this method of weaving fable with Biblical parables to be effective, useful, or helpful in training children in how to understand God's word as the foundation of our lives.

If anything, I believe The Little House That Stood (unwittingly) portrays scripture (which is God's authoritative word) and specifically the parables of Jesus as simply another literary wisdom source rather than the source of all wisdom, which undermines the important message Veggie Tales has spent the past twenty years proclaiming.

There is no doubt children will enjoy this video. The music is lively, the stories are interesting (although I found the Humpty Dumpty inspired "The Good Egg of Gooseville" a bit lacking in coherency) and the animation as always is excellent.

However, there are better Veggie Tales videos which get the point across even while expounding on a different theme or topic. I'm not saying don't watch The Little House That Stood, but rather be prepared to discuss how God's word is not the same as a fairytale or fable, but gives us the true, firm foundation we need to live as Christians.

Another family favorite for my 2-8 year old crowd! March 11 2013
By April E. - Published on Amazon.com
My family have been fans of the Veggie Tales movies ever since my oldest daughter was a preschooler. We enjoy the fun twist they take on Bible stories and other stories, to teach Christian values to children. The humor always captures the interest of our children, as well as tickling the adults' funny bones with a few little gems (like references to other movies and books) that the children may not catch. Best of all, they are completely safe and family friendly. As my 2 year old says, "I dub Veg Tades!" (translation: "I love Veggie Tales!")

The latest movie, The Little House That Stood, did not disappoint us at all. It held up to all our expectations of a Veggie Tales movie. It uses two different fairy tales to teach two different lessons. The first story uses the Story of the Three Little Pigs to help illustrate Jesus' parable of the wise and foolish builders from Matthew 7. This town has three builders, who each build a house for one of the three little pigs. However, only one builder is building on a firm foundation. This story is very cute and illustrates the importance of making wise choices and building our life on the foundation of God's Truth.

The second story on this DVD uses the familiar nursery rhyme of Humpty Dumpty to show the importance of helping our neighbors. Humpty Dumpty is the mayor of Gooseville, but he'd rather take care of himself than help the citizens of his town. When he runs away to a self-serve resort, things quickly fall apart in Gooseville. Everyone, including Humpty Dumpty, soon learns that life is better when we set aside selfishness and take time to help our neighbors. Though this story didn't reference a specific Bible story or verse, it was still a good lesson.

We've had this movie for less than a week, and it's been watched every single day since we got it. My 2 year old, 4 year old and 6 year old like it the most, but everyone has watched it at least once. We'll enjoy watching it many more times, as well.

"Larry Liked to Make Up Statistics." "That's Only 50% True." April 22 2015
By Mark Baker - Carstairs Considers - Published on Amazon.com
Every so often, VeggieTales deviates from its formula. Usually, that means it has no wrap around, but for their latest video, it means there is no one central theme to the stories. Instead, the two segments in The Little House That Stood are themed around a mash up of Mother Goose with Biblical parables.

Of course, if you are a fan of these computer animated Vegetables, you know to expect plenty of fun with your Biblical lessons. That’s certainly the case here in both cases. Heck, it starts at the very beginning when we see Larry the Cucumber and Bob the Tomato in some pretty fun costumes and meet Mother Goose (okay, just a normal goose) as our two hosts discuss the two letters from kids they are prepared to satisfy. And in a throw back to the old days, these are actual letters and not a kid on the computer. One letter asks for a parable while the other wants something fun from Mother Goose. And it’s Larry who comes up with the perfect solution.

The first segment is the title one. In “The Little House that Stood,” we meet three builders in the town of Cabbageville. Larry builds with straw, Mr. Lunt with brick, and Bob with sticks. But Bob also picks his location carefully and follows the master builder blue print, including creating a firm foundation.

Just as three pigs move to town, there is a contest for new builder, with our three main characters hoping to win Builder of the Year. Oh yeah, and a storm comes, flooding Wolf Creek and putting pressure on Huff n Puff Dam. I’m sure you can see where this one is going.

Our second story is “The Good Egg of Gooseville” and finds Bob the one in need of a lesson. He’s playing mayor Humpty Dumpty and is completely stressed out by the amount of work he has to do keeping peace in the village. One Jack is practicing his candle jumping while Little Miss Muffet is finding a thorn in her tuffet and Little Bo Peep’s sheep are running around town – again. The other Jack and Jill are constantly looking for something in the well. Meanwhile, Mama Bear is upset because she lives next to the Old Woman who Lived in a Shoe, and she doesn’t like having all those kids around. Think of what they are doing to property values. The pressure is making Humpty/Bob start to crack, so he goes on a vacation on the top of the wall. What will happen next?

And yes, between these two stories we get a brand new silly song. “Happy Tooth Day” finds Larry celebrating the day he got his tooth. And he has a special gift for his tooth. The results? Pretty funny when Bob is around.

All told, this is another fun video. Both mash ups actually work, and the clever way they did it, especially in the first one, will entertain adults even if their kids don’t get all the jokes. There are several references adults will get and should really make them laugh. I will admit, I didn’t catch the parable they were retelling in the second story (Good Samaritan) until the wrap up, but I certainly caught the lesson.

And that is my only complaint about the video. I like it when they have one coherent lesson they are teaching. Here, even the verse that Qwerty spits out at the end is actually the references for both parables. But then again, it provides the opportunity for parents to read the original parable with their kids. Really, it’s a minor issue overall. I mean, we’ve got a fun 45 minutes that does teach Bible lessons in creative ways. What else do you really want?

As always, the voice talent is great. Original creators Mike Nawrocki and Phil Vischer provide many of the voices, and they are fun. They’ve expanded the cast quite a bit here, and all the voices match the new characters.

The animation is a good as well. It’s not the big budget quality we’d see from Pixar or Dreamworks, but it tells the story well and never gets in the way.

So, ultimately, it’s another fun lesson or two in The Little House That Stood. If you’ve got kids (or are young at heart yourself), this is a must get VeggieTales.
A Mixed Bag Feb. 1 2015
By tvtv3 - Published on Amazon.com
The main story on the VeggieTales video THE HOUSE THAT STOOD is a retelling of the Biblical parable of the wise builder who built his house on rock combined with elements from The Three Little Pigs nursery rhyme. The story features the Three Little Pigs looking for developers to build them homes. Bob, Larry, and Mr. Lunt each build a house, but only one is built using plans from the Master Builder's Handbook. This story reminded me of the classic VeggieTales videos from Big Idea's heyday.

The "Silly Song with Larry" on this DVD is a song entitled "Happy Tooth Day." Written as a kind of doo-wop song, it's a song that Larry sings in celebration of his one tooth.

The second story on THE LITTLE HOUSE THAT STOOD is a retelling of the story of Humpty Dumpty entitled "The Good Egg of Gooseville." This shorter tale features Bob portraying Humpty Dumpty, the mayor of a seemingly peaceful town who ends up cracking under pressure. The premise seems cute. However, out of all the VeggieTales stories I have watched, this is one of the most disappointing ones. Humpty Dumpty is made to look like the bad guy in the story who has to change his attitude, but it's really the townspeople who should be more respectful of their mayor and give him time to take a Sabbath.

Overall, THE HOUSE THAT STOOD is a mixed bag. It's got an entertaining main story, a good Silly Song with Larry, but a very disappointing second story.

The DVD has several extra features including Behind the Scenes with Big Idea, History of Mother Goose
English and Spanish Subtitles, Discussion Guide, and more.
