Veggie Tales Celery Night Fever Review
We love Veggie Tales. We have most, if not all, the movies, we have toys, puzzles, games, costumes, and we have attended Veggie Tales Live a few times.
What isn’t to love about talking vegetables? When my oldest was little I would use those silly talking vegetables to encourage eating! “Come 0n, try a Bob Mato. How about Larry the Cucumber?” It actually worked!
What is not to love about talking vegetables that teach kids about God? There are so many “kids shows” on the “kids channels” that are just trash. We forbid a lot of them in our house. You can read more on our thoughts about television programs HERE and HERE. Veggie Tales is something we watched over and over. I didn’t have to worry about bad words or bad morals. My oldest learned so much about the application of God’s Word from those lovable creatures too. Veggie Tales became a mainstay in our home as my two youngest arrived. Veggie Tales is also something that my husband and I enjoy watching with the kids.
Recently, I was asked to review the newest Veggie Tale Movie: “Celery Night Fever.” Needless to say, I was excited. When I told the kids, they couldn’t wait! I told them they had to help me write the post :). When the movie arrived, we curled up on the couch with some popcorn and enjoyed our family movie night. The vote was unanimous – 2 THUMBS WAY UP!!!( Click here for coloring pages that go with Celery Night Fever for FREE!!! )
This particular Veggie Tale movie is a lesson on forgiveness.
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 1 Corinthians 13:4 – 6 NIV
Forgiveness is such an important lesson for adults and children. Discussing this lesson using fun and silly vegetables helps the kids to latch on.
“Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, ‘Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother when he sins against me? Up to seven times?’ Jesus answered, ‘I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.’ Matthew 18: 21-22 NIV
An added bonus of the movie was the new songs!!! When the movie ended, my kids played all the new ones again in the bonus section and sang along. It was so cute!
“If anyone has caused grief, he has not so much grieved me as he has grieved all of you to some extent—not to put it too severely. The punishment inflicted on him by the majority is sufficient. Now instead, you ought to forgive and comfort him, so that he will not be overwhelmed by excessive sorrow. I urge you, therefore, to reaffirm your love for him.” 2 Corinthians 2:5-8 NIV
The kids and I loved this movie and highly recommend it! I give it a 10/10! “Celery Night Fever” will make its debut on August 5th! There is also one other surprise. In October, Veggie Tales has another new movie set for release!!!
“Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.” Luke 6:37 NIV
