TV tales are strong on morals and downplay the Bible.

Lots of issues

This is really not a good show for young children. My child came home from 3 year old preschool feeling scared, because she had watched an episode that featured a tornado. I was upset. And some children will be bothered by the idea that their food can walk and talk like them. Animals are more ideal characters. By the time children are old enough to watch this, they will think it is silly. That aside, this show is obviously designed for a white, Christian audience, which is disappointing . You could argue that this show teaches values, but I would rather my children learn these through fun, age-appropriate books.

Veggietales On TV ! Review by Logan Strohl

It may not be the same as the Veggietales direct to video and dvd videos because of removing God from it and messages to him but it still works really well and offers new things such as the mail , mail here is your mail ,Pa Grape's home movies , Archibald's big book of oddities and Paco the story telling Mule as well as some old things but done in a new way such as different letters and removing God from it because of NBC not being Christian but otherwise then it is still really good. Fun for the whole family and fans of Veggietales. It's not the classic one but I still enjoy it for what it is.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (26 ):
Kids say (43 ):

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.
