Veggies with morals...who thought this great idea up?
21 November 2002 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

Computer animated veggies...who would think of something kids hate to eat and apply morals to them, to make the best Christian videos ever? BigIdea productions. I think we all need to salute these guys. They take the same technique as the Simpsons (few people do all the voices, great humor, etc.) and apply, as I said before, morals. Great for kids, and even fun for us adults.

5/5 STARS
