When: Fri., Nov. 27, 2 & 6 p.m. 2015
VeggieTales is a computer-animated cartoon series centered on walking, talking vegetables. The show and subsequent computer games, movies, live performances and music albums, teach Christian values to children through the often humorous retelling of Bible stories and parables. To boot, the program is supposed to vaguely encourage healthy eating by getting kiddos to see just how darn fun vegetables can be. (Sure, if you want your kids to chew something to tiny bits and swallow it, the best thing to do is give it anthropomorphic qualities.) The show has occasionally met with backlash for being overtly religious; but its creators, in true Christian fashion, have never relented, instead insisting that their gentle way of brainwashing youngsters is a relatively painless way to get those little cherubs to drink up that Kool-Aid. Whatever your stance on the Christly path through life, or on vegetables, you’ll have two opportunities to experience VeggieTales Live! this Saturday when Bob the Tomato, Larry the Cucumber and co. sing themselves silly in a production titled Little Kids Do Big Things.
