Ophelia (Mr. Lunt):[pause; Archibald has pushed Mr. Lunt all the way onto the stage] I think we're gonna get letters about this.

Many viewers agree: The is the best Veggietales!, 9 January 2004
Author: Tim Hodge from Chicago, IL

Just as a contrast to the first comment left about this video, most fans think this is the best of the Veggietales lot. It has outsold all previous episodes (though the recent "Ballad of Little Joe" is closing in on its sales records) and received Best Direct to Video Release of 2000 from the World Animation Celebration -- beating out "Lady and the Tramp II". If you want more positive reviews, check out I, for one, think you'll like it, too.
