A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The heart of every VeggieTales episode is its moral about virtues, including honesty, trust, and faith. That said, it's worth noting that the main characters are almost always male.

VeggieTales is a thriving franchise with toys, DVDs, and merchandise.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that some of these TV episodes aren't the same "VeggieTales" you'll find on DVD and video -- they're a newly edited version. The morals remain as strong and clearly (if not subtly) presented as ever, but the biblical verses and stories are gone. It's also worth noting that the main characters always seem to be male.
Is It Any Good?
Because the morals usually veer toward the obvious, VeggieTales will probably be most amusing for younger kids or, perhaps more accurately, less sophisticated viewers. It's not the lessons themselves that older kids might object to; it's more the fact that you can see them coming a mile away, and even the best songs can't make getting there any more exciting.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
