This compilation of “Veggie Tales” Music Videos will have your turnips spinning like tops! Be the envy of the neighbors! Learn the words to all the favorite “Veggie Tale” songs and share them with others. A dozen songs are covered.

Although most of the footage is from their previous videos without much or any modifications, they do add the words of the songs to the bottom of the screen. This helps you find those few words that had you baffled “what are they singing?”

There is a new and improved Bunny Song (from “Rack, Shack and Benny”) that makes it a much more acceptable song. Also, a music video featuring “Pirates Who Don’t Do Anything” is a brand new one musical-short never before seen in other productions. Or, perhaps it is a preview from a not-yet-released episode… Any Big Idea representatives out there want to comment? Nevertheless, it is a fun time on the rolling seas!

Intermixed with the videos are original snippets of “Veggie Tale” creativity, including: “Workout Video” featuring Larry the Cucumber wearing a Gourd’s Gym shirt, “Home Improvement,” and a “Success” video spinoffs! Excellent integration of the videos and these original “shorts.”

This video is a must for all “Veggie Tale” fans. If you are a first time “Veggie Tale” buyer, you may want to pick any regular episode to get a music video but also a story with a message. This reviewer recommends “Larry Boy! And the Fib from Outer Space” to see how lying can get you into serious trouble!

In the end, it is hard to beat Veggie Tales! Great animation! Excellent music and story telling!
