Veggie Tales - Larry Boy & the Fib from Outer Space: Lesson in Telling the Truth
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

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.
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.
