I actually got a sneak peak of Robin Good and His Not-So-Merry Men (or at least the cover of it) when I got to be part of a VeggieTales focus group last year. Ever since, I’ve been anxiously awaiting this story where the lesson is on something so important, especially in the stage I’m in with my young school-age children: handling hurt. It’s just another reason why I appreciate VeggieTales – they heard from moms that this was a top lesson they wanted to see VeggieTales address for their kids…and boy did they listen!
A little info about the show:
There’s no hurt too big for God! Robin Good has a mission – fundraising from the rich and giving to the poor! But when a greedy Prince starts stealing the townspeople’s hams, donations are down and Robin’s band of friends desert him to give robbing a try. Can Robin overcome his hurt, show his friends what’s right and restore the townspeople’s hope?
The DVD also features:
An adorable short video starring Junior Asparagus: “Lenny and the Lost Birthday”. Plays at the start of the show before the main feature.
A digital short that is both hilarious and educational, teaching kids about what a Leap Year means: “Larry’s Leapin’ Leap Year”. Watch it on the DVD and also here: http://www.veggietales.
