Netflix/VeggieTales In The House Original Series Review

My daughter grew up with VeggieTales (way back when they were sold on VHS tapes!).

We loved snuggling up on the couch and watching the antics of Bob, Larry, Junior and the rest of the crisper drawer, laughing, singing and learning important life lessons, and that God Made Us Special and Loves Us Very Much.  She is now all grown up, but we still sing the songs, and it’s actually one of our Christmas traditions to play the CDs while we decorate our Christmas tree.

On November 26, VeggieTales, unveiled a brand-new Netflix original series for kids, VeggieTales in the House.

The all-new series marks the first time in the 21-year history of VeggieTales that Bob, Larry and the veggie crew venture off the countertop for exciting new adventures, while remaining true to the values-driven storytelling that has long made VeggieTales such a beloved part of childhood.  The first five 22-minute episodes are available for Netflix members in the US and Canada to watch instantly.

Since I’m used to the ‘Old School’ VeggieTales, I did notice the new look that our favorite characters were sporting.  Not bad, just different.  Honestly once I started watching and getting into the story being told, I was totally oblivious to it, and actually found the graphics really aren’t as different as I first thought.

As is expected from VeggieTales there is a fun song in each episode, and I’m certain that some children will want to watch the episodes just to sing along with them!  The Biblical and moral lessons are well accounted and aren’t limited to the young crowd.  Case in point the very first episode titled Puppies and Guppies has Larry and Laura wanting a puppy and learning a lesson in responsibility from Pa Grape.  They first find out a free puppy comes with some costs, and then want to earn supplies to care for the puppies they want by working for Pa Grape.  With Bob’s revelation to them that a free puppy doesn’t mean there isn’t any cost to it, totally had me thinking of how many teenagers don’t realize that getting a vehicle isn’t just the ‘cost’ of the car.  I bet a lot of teens could learn a lesson from this episode too!

It’s so wonderful that because this series is through Netflix that you aren’t limited to watching it on a screen with a DVD player hooked up.  Rather the episodes can be watched on a phone or tablet as well, which may be a great sanity saver for parents when they’re on the go!

We all know it can be a challenge to get kids to eat their vegetables. But it’s a cinch to get them to call their Veggies!
