I'm Done with This Blog

Hi everyone! I've got some sad news to tell you. I'm quitting this blog. I'm not quitting my Pixar blog, which you can find at newpixarblog.blogspot.com , only this one.

The reason for this is because I found myself not wanting to put stress on me and because I found myself being bored talking about VeggieTales.

Luckily there are other reviewers of the shows that you can watch and listen to.

I hope you understand my decision and remember, God made you special and he loves you very much. Goodbye!

New 'Noah's Ark' Clips, Including New Theme Song!

Hi everybody! Today the official VeggieTales YouTube channel uploaded tons of sneak peeks of the upcoming Noah's Ark DVD coming soon.

One of these sneak peeks being the all-new theme song, which I personally loved for paying tribute to classic episodes to show the history of the show. Another clip I loved was the countertop intro sneak peeks which pokes a bit of fun of the controversial redesigns which even I have grown to like. Here's all of the sneak peeks!

Review: 'Lord of the Beans'

Hi everybody! If you have been wondering why I have barely been posted anything is because I have been on the epic quest to review, Lord of the Beans!

Plot:
"Lord of the Beans begins with the arrival of Randalf in the Shire for Billboy Baggypants' 122nd birthday party (which he calls his "Twelfety-twoth" birthday, referencing Bilbo's "eleventy-first" birthday in The Fellowship of the Ring). Billboy talks about retiring and leaving the Shire and uses a strange bean to produce a birthday cake. Returning to his home, he finds Randalf waiting in his living room. Randalf remarks on Billboy's impressive height, his fine clothing, and his luxuriously appointed home, knowing they have come from the bean, and warns his friend of using such things lightly. Billboy concedes that the bean has given him almost everything he could want. He then announces that he is leaving the Shire and bequeathing everything he owns, including the bean, to his nephew Toto.

Waiting for Toto, Randalf relates that Billboy has departed and draws his attention to the bean. Toto is curious as to why he would want a bean and Randalf describes the origin of a magical bean that could produce clothing, consumables, and small kitchen appliances, and also change your appearance. After verifying the bean's authenticity from an inscription left after warming it in the fire, Toto is unsure about accepting such a gift and tries to pass it off to Randalf. However, Randalf explains that one cannot choose his gifts and must determine for himself how they should best be used.

He then suggests that Toto travel to the Elders of the
Razzberry Forest for insight with some friends that he has already gathered to assist with the journey: the Ranger Ear-a-Corn; the Elf Leg-O-Lamb; the Dwarf Grumpy; and "The Other Elf", Leg-O-Lamb's brother who had nothing better to do. They trek through the Mountains of Much Snowia and eventually reach the Razzberry Forest. There, Randalf warns the others not to laugh because the Elders have lost their sense of humor. The Elders welcome them and inform Randalf that they must travel to the Land of Woe. The others burst into laughter upon hearing the greetings and native tongue of the Elders, which involves blowing raspberries. This gets them sentenced to detention on a platform forever until an Eagle "saves" them and they escape.

In House Recaps: 'Bob & The Awesome Frosting Mustache'

Hi everybody! It's time for another In House Recap! Today's episode is, Bob & The Awesome Frosting Mustache.

-First off, why is Larry on the poster for the karaoke contest?

-Another running gag in the show is a guy named Tom Celeriac who is an action hero from the biggest movies in the veggie world.

-Okay, this isn't a bad episode of the show, but I feel like it is out of character to have Bob acting kind of like a child in this episode (example: wanting a mustache.)

-So if you remember my recap of the trailer of Season 1 you know that I didn't know what was coming out of the TV, now I know it was a big mustache. Which leads me to this question: Why did they put it in the trailer?

-The first song of this episode is Bob fantasizing about having a mustache. It's a good song, but I think it doesn't really have a purpose.

In House Recaps: 'Sorry, We're Closed Today'

Hi everybody! It's time for another In House Recap! Today, we look at the episode Sorry, We're Closed Today.

-It is nice to see Tim Hodge's name again, I forgot the last project he worked on.

-There is a running gag in this show about the fictional Plantasaurus. (Sorry if I misspelled that.)

-It is also nice to see an anime tribute here, it makes me wonder if they would do an entire like this.

-Another running gag shown here is Larry's apparent love for sardines. I don't get, but nobody does.

-I should talk about the new French Pea design, it is okay but think it looks weird sometimes.

-Archibald's new design is good, it is nothing incredible but it looks good.

-Junior's new design is okay, I like that he looks more like an asparagus but I which kept his hat.

-Mr. Lunt's new design is the best one, because he looks updated but still feels and looks like the old design. I which they did this with the other characters.

-Something that I like is that in Pa Grape's shop they have a "Wall of Silly" which has tons of nods to Silly Songs like, hairbrushes, pizza from Pizza Angel, sippy cups, cheeseburgers, pants, Barbara Manatee, high silk hats, ukuleles, sombreros, accordions, astonishing wigs, and pirate hats. Can you find any other nods?

Review: 'Minnesota Cuke and the Search For Samson's Hairbrush'

Hi everybody! You can stop looking for your hairbrush because it is now time to join Minnesota Cuke in a new adventure.

Plot:
"On the countertop, Bob and Larry both get letters from two different kids. Bob gets a letter from a kid from Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, and Larry gets a letter from a kid from San Antonio, Texas about being bullied and what God says to do about it and start a couple of stories.

In "Bully Trouble", Junior is a young boy who is discouraged when a big bully named Mount Gordon claims the playground as his own and threatens to pound anyone who trespasses. Back in his tree house, Junior starts daydreaming about being very heroic with Gordon always being the antagonist of his dreams. When he declares that he is not afraid, Dad comes and gives him advice on how to overcome his fears.

Later, the kids return to the playground. Gordon appears and threatens to pound Junior every day. But soon, the other kids gain courage to stand up to Gordon as well. Gordon leaves and everyone cheers.

In the Silly Love Song "Pizza Angel," Larry sends out for a pizza, but for some reason, it takes a long time to arrive. Larry sings about missing his pizza in the style of a teen tragedy. Towards the middle of the song, some pea angels appear as backup singers. Finally, Jimmy [Gourd] arrives and tells Larry that he couldn't find his house, so he got hungry and ate his pizza.

Review: 'The Star of Christmas'

Merry Christmas, everybody! For this festival holiday I am reviewing the second VeggieTales Christmas special.
 
Plot:
"The episode is set in London in 1882. It begins with Cavis Appythart and Millward Phelps—jingle writers who decide to make their big break into musical theatre. While Millward is content to see their work featured on billboards and in newspapers, Cavis believes they can make a difference in crime-ridden London by staging a grand musical that will move the citizens to greater expressions of love. Their opportunity arises when Millward's Uncle Nezzer grants them the use of his theater on Christmas Eve. They plan the huge production of a new musical called "The Princess and the Plumber". Unfortunately, the script is not yet complete, and the premiere is only three days away.

Seymour Schwenk (Sullivan's and Gilbert's middle names), their friend and an inventor, shows up in an experimental rocket car (a direct reference to Chitty Chitty Bang Bang) and delivers a box of light bulbs to them. Cavis maintains that if their production is glitzy and bright (electric lights are still a novelty at this time and were first introduced at the Savoy Theatre for Gilbert and Sullivan's Patience) then it will be a bigger hit and reach more people. He plans to integrate the lights directly into the scenery itself (and, soon, the costumes as well).

However, they still have much work to do. They need to convince the city's premiere talent, Constance Effie Pickering, to star in the lead role, and they need to get a commitment from Prince Calvin Fredrick to attend the premier. While Cavis and his assistant Bob Winston work on Pickering and the Prince, Millward struggles to complete the script. Everything comes together, and Cavis starts feeling confident that their production will be a huge success. The Prince tells Pickering that her pipes are corroded they water can't drain and her toilet exploded, she's flushing in vain.

After noticing a flyer for a Christmas pageant planned to debut on the same night at a local church, Cavis goes to investigate. He observes Edmund Gilbert preparing a low-budget children's play, and concludes that it poses no threat to their grand production. However, the pageant intends to feature an object called the "Star of Christmas". Wondering aloud about this as he leaves the church, Cavis is overheard by Arthur McHollingshead. Arthur, a historian, reveals that the Star of Christmas is an ancient relic that has not been seen by the public in 79 years. He rushes off with great excitement to report the news, which promptly makes the front page headline the following morning.
