This is arguably. . .

. . .the best and funniest "Veggie Tales" video in the entire series! This was the first one owned by our family -- and we literally wore the thing completely out! The kids loved it; the adults loved it just as much.

This re-telling of the story of David and Goliath, starring Dr. Archibald Asparagus as King Saul; Jr. Asparagus as the young David; the hysterical Pa Grape as David's father; and the wonderfully taunting Peas is a reminder that "little guys can do big things, too"!

About this movie


Another winning video from the VeggieTales folk. To teach Larry the Cucumber about self-esteem, Bob the Tomato tells the story, slightly renamed, of David and Goliath. Jr. Asparagus plays the young man who wants to prove himself and will face the towering pickle. These adorable tales, brightly animated and containing bouncy songs, teach Christian-lite values in an entertaining way. Telling a single story (instead of the normal two), this 30-minute video goes on a bit too long, but it does contain the funniest entry in the "Silly Songs with Larry" series:Love My Lips.--Doug Thomas
