Original episodes are better

The only positive note is that they kept a Bible verse in every episode (the bare minimum they could have added about God). The characters are very creepy looking according to my 4 year old, and the songs are beyond annoying. We’re going to stick to the old episodes.

Fantastic for kids & toddlers

This show is amazing and I hope it isn't cancelled anytime soon. My little girl has been mesmerized by it since we first put it on for her. She is under two years, but she loves the colors, the songs, and the expressions of the veggies. This is good for parents because as most know, children love to watch something they like over and over again and this show has some high-brow humor in it to cater to older watchers as well. It is a win win. It has great messages, great songs, and good humor.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (6):
Kids say (8):

Two decades of entertaining kids with Christian-based messages and bouncing, talking produce has served the VeggieTales franchise and its fans well. VeggieTales in the House builds on that foundation, expanding the Veggies' horizons and dreaming up new stories that cleverly illustrate the value of strong moral character. It's hard not to be delighted in both what this group teaches kids and how they go about it, with humor that appeals to parents and fun songs that will have younger kids singing along. What's more, even those of little religious inclination should find the stories worthwhile since outright references to the Bible or to God are limited.

If a fault can be found, it's in the slightly disconcerting animation changes that mark this series as a newcomer to a franchise whose characters are truly beloved among fans. It doesn't detract from the stories' messages, of course, and they're still cute as can be, but loyalists may find the character updates unwelcome and unnecessary, particularly given the franchise's longtime success. Even so, VeggieTales in the House is a delightful, family-friendly series with strong lessons and endearing characters.
