In which Jr. Asparagus. . .

  • Oct 15, 2001
. . .learns an important lesson about fear -- and the protection of God. "Frankencelery" is hysterical, as are the zillions of tiny monsters jumping in and out of Jr.'s bedroom furniture. "God is bigger than the Boogie Man" is certainly one of the most memorable songs in this series.

The series is further enhanced by a re-telling of the story of Daniel in the Lion's Den starring everybody's favorite cucumber, Larry. The story illustrates numerous values in a positive, non-threatening context, including the dangers of jealousy (as portrayed by three scallions in "Oh, no!"); the necessity of doing what's right -- even in the face of fear and personal danger; and the understanding that God is always with us.

In these days of fear and turmoil, this video could be an excellent tool for the parents of young children to talk about being afraid -- and how to overcome.

A wonderful follow-up to "Are You My Neighbor?"

About this movie


Bob the Tomato and Larry the Cucumber host another winning episode in this Christian-lite animated series aimed at 3-9 year olds, combining parable and parody in two lessons about fear. After watching a scary Frankencelery movie, Jr. Asparagus works through his fears of darkness and monsters to learn that "God is bigger than the Boogie Man." InDaniel and the Lions' Den, our cast of rollicking vegetables performs a highly engaging adaptation of the classic Bible story. Larry the Cucumber stars as God's humble and faithful servant Daniel. A supporting cast of green onions and asparagus--wisemen gone bad--sing their way to Daniel's fate: "We could use him as a footstool or a table to play Scrabble on then tie him up and beat him up and throw him out of Babylon." Co-creators Phil Vischer and Mike Nawrocki expertly combine classical, rock, jazz, and funk music with bold, energetic 3-D computer animation and plenty of witty dialogue.--Liane Thomas
