    Pros: Great animation! Funny! Refreshing lack of morally challenged writers! Appealing to all ages!
    Cons: None

    Summary: I long for shows like the ones I remember seeing as a kid. There was a moral to every one: Davey and Goliath, The Courtship of Eddie’s Father, the Brady Bunch (although I guess there’s no secrets with that one anymore). At the end of every episode, the ... read more

    Pros: lovely story, holds child's attention, bright colors, lively, funny song
    Cons: opening is a bit slow

    Summary: My wife and I had heard wondrous things about the Veggie Tales series, but we were a bit skeptical. We wondered if the videos might be too preachy and appeal more to parents than little ones. But a friend and her daughter gave our two-year-old ... read more

    Pros: Learning Object Lessons for Life
    Cons: NOTHING!

    Summary: This is yet another great from the Veggie Tales series. This particular one is about Thankfulness. Madame Blueberry had everything materialistic that she needed... but she wanted more and more and more. The Christian video series Veggie Tales is ... read more

    Pros: Another wonderful VeggieTales lesson.
    Cons: Reminds me I don't know enough vegetables!

    Pros: Funny, Biblical morals, Entertaining for whole family
    Cons: Not long enough!

    Summary: Are I talking about Blues Clues? Nope. How about being really sad? I should hope not, especially with all the stars I gave this video. No, the blue we are talking about refers to a blueberry. And not just any blueberry either. This blueberry is Madame ... read more

    Pros: Wonderful moral lesson
    Cons: none

    Pros: funny, quirky, and a good moral
    Cons: only 30 minutes long- but this is good for children with short attention spans

    Summary: When a movie begins with a giant blueberry belting out a number called "I'm So Blue I Don't Know What To Do" (of course, with her veggie butlers singing back-up), you know you're in for something very different! Like all of the Veggie Tales ... read more

    Pros: funny, clever, witty,...
    Cons: its hard to learn a behavior just from watching a video

    Summary: The moral of Madame Blueberry’s story is that “stuff” doesn’t make you happy (and if you’re not careful, “stuff” can destroy your house). Since all of the Veggie Tales have a moral suited to “Sunday morning values” (which I assume means Biblical values) ... read more
