Product Description


Well, it had to happen--Archibald Asparagus is hosting his own VeggieTales show. The 15th video from this groundbreaking Christian-lite company gives us plenty of what makes the series so much fun: leader Bob the Tomato, daffy Larry the Cucumber, catchy songs, and scattershot humor. Tired of the wacky ways of the normal VeggieTales shows, Archibald wants to inject an element of class. First up: an all-vegetable staging of Hamlet. Unfortunately, the only script that can be found is a slightly different version called "Omelet." The Bard's famous lines take a beating with the usual Monty Python-esque humor of the Veggie crew. Next, after an Archibald-influenced "Silly Songs with Larry" segment, the featured event of the evening proves to be the lost Gilbert & Sullivan musical Lyle the Kindly Viking. This brawny band of Vikings love their job (and have an affinity for big-screen TVs) but cannot understand why the meek Lyle (Junior Asparagus, natch) wants to share his meager belongings with their victims. Certainly, the sharing ways of Lyle will win the day. After such experiments as the Larry-Boy shows, which dropped the series' familiar opening and even Bob himself, this familiarly structured VeggieTales video is a joy to watch and illustrates how far the creators have come while sticking to their roots. For ages 4 and up. --Doug Thomas

Product Description

Oh, my! Determined to present something "classy" for a change, Archibald Asparagus has taken over VeggieTales! Assisted by those rascally French Peas, Archibald aims for new heights in "veggie programming" by attempting to produce "the world's first all-vegetable staging of Shakespeare's Hamlet," the first ever "Classy Songs with Larry," and for the grand finale, the world premier of what he believes to be Gilbert and Sullivan's "lost musical" - "Lyle the Kindly Viking!" Of course, working with the French Peas as assistants is a recipe for disaster and in the chaos - and hilarity - that ensues, Bob, Larry and Junior all learn a great lesson about sharing. Archibald, on the other hand, mostly just learns to never again work with the French Peas. Don't miss Junior Asparagus as "Lyle the Kindly Viking" in this hilarious VeggieTales musical adventure! Your whole family will sing - and laugh - along as they learn that "sharing gets us more of what we really want - friends!"

5.0 out of 5 stars Hysterical for you and your kids Nov. 18 2003
Format:VHS Tape
I love the Veggie Tales movies almost as much as my three year old son. They are funny at multiple levels and carry a strong moral message that is age-appropriate for kids.
"Lyle" is my favorite of the Veggie Tales.Unlike most of their other tapes, this one is hosted by Archibald Asparagus who wants to "class up" the show. His first feature is "Omelet", a take-off on Hamlet with some very funny lines. The interlude is changed to "Class Songs with Larry" - a terrific spoof. The second feature is the side-splitting story of Lyle, the Viking who shares instead of pillages. The music is done in the style of Gilbert and Sullivan. Brilliantly done.
My son's other tapes are good, but after the first time through... Well, they get old fast. When he asks for "Lyle", I sit down to watch it again with him whenever I can. I enjoy it as much as he does.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have Veggie Tales Aug. 15 2002
By A Customer
This is the best in the Veggie Tales series on DVD. I have all the Veggie Tales DVDs, including the Silly Song (which I would also highly recommend), and I think the story script is the funniest. Although the stories are not based on any Biblical stories, the Biblical message is good and easy to understand. The only bad thing about the DVD is that it doesn't have subtitles. I've watched this DVD least 10 times with baby already. A must have. Enjoy...

5.0 out of 5 stars Funniest Yet. July 16 2002
This Veggie Tales movie is the funniest one I have seen yet. I love the humor and of course the visual aspects are incredible.
With Archibald taking over the show and pretty much turning into Masterpiece Theater, it's sure to please since things go wrong in his perfect world. Jr. Asparagus plays the singing Lyle, which I love, and you will also see Mr. Lunt as a girl in Omlet. This is a must have for all Veggie Tales lovers. If you haven't seen any, I would say this is the one to start off with viewing. Well done!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best May 3 2002
By A Customer
This is just a great Veggie Tales movie. It is funny just as many of the Veggie Tales movies are and the music is really great. They try to mimic a typical "Musical" and they do a great job.

5.0 out of 5 stars Actually, closer to 4.5 March 24 2002
Archiald Asparagus and the French Peas as hosts.... a perfect recepie for disaster and humor. Upset about the lack of culture on the show, Archie turns VT into an episode of Masterpeas Theater. *bad pun, I know...* The first feature is the first all Veggie production of Shakespear's classic "Omelete". A famine isin the land, and the citizens don't have enough to eat. Or at least not enough eggs. Prince Omlete has the last eggs in the kingdom, cooked light and fluffy. Will he learn to share his blessings, as God wants us to? Will the people of Denmark have eggs? This piece, aimed at the older 'children' viewers, paradies classic lines, King James English, and you get to find out how Elizebethian theatre is kind to VT's lack of female characters....
Archie for the second time in VT histories vuts out the Silly Song bit. In it's place is "Classy Songs with Larry", the part of the show where Larrysings a classy song.
The main feature is the first production of Gilbert and Sullivan's lost musical, "Lyle the Kindly Viking". Most of the vikings enjoy raiding the monastery and being 'the terrors of the sea', but the youngest member doesn't 'fit the Viking style'. Lyle is eventually found out to be giving his share of the booty back to the monks, as well as potholders. Can this bring something better than gold, money, and big-screen tv's? Will the other Vikings support him? Is Olaf finding out Lyle's biggest prolem?
Now, to the DVD features. Anyone who has seen the extras and scrrens on "Countdown" and "Angry Eyebrows" would know that this is the first venture to DVD. The chapter selection has no background music. The quality of the extras are good, ut there are only 3. There's an interview of Phil and the director, widescreen version of the Classy Song, and a peek at animation develpomnet.
All in all, a solid Veggie entry, though definatly not the best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get 5 servings of veggies a day March 3 2002
Veggie Tales rock and this is a perfect example. This dvd is colorful, fast-paced, has singable songs and teaches a good lesson. My husband and I get tired of most of our kids' videos but we request this one if we get to pick!

5.0 out of 5 stars VeggieTales - Lyle the Kindly Viking (DVD) Feb. 11 2002
I have only had this DVD a short time and already got it memorized. My son (1 year old) will sit and watch this entire DVD and is esp. fond of the silly songs. I personally like him watching VeggieTales because they teach my child about God in a suttle way. The characters are the cutest.

3.0 out of 5 stars This is okay Dec 27 2001
We had bought silly songs dvd for my son and thought it was just hilarious. So when we saw this we decided it to get this for him. It was very cute and nice. He did get a bit bored of it after awhile. However depending on your religion this may offend you. This video quotes bible versus and makes numerous mentions of god.
