I personally know people that are antiVeggieTales, proVeggieTales, and really-don’t-care-about-VeggieTales. My husband and I enjoyed watching them before we had kids, and then when we had kids we weren’t so sure about VeggieTales. Sounds backwards, doesn’t it?
These days when people ask us about them our reply is something like this: They are a fun, clean cartoon; but don’t use them to teach Bible stories. They are entertainment. While we appreciate the fact that they are teaching character lessons with Bible stories and cartoons we didn’t let our children watch the VeggieTales based on Bible Stories until they were old enough to know the actual Bible story from the Bible. There are VeggieTale DVDs that are based on literary classics that we did let them watch. While I don’t always approve of the music used in the cartoons, I do like knowing that there will be no taking of the Lord’s name in vain, no extreme violence, and no crude innuendos – which I can’t say about very many popular cartoons.
