my favorite of the Veggie Tales series
4 October 2002 | by (virginia beach, virginia) – See all my reviews

This is Larry and Bob's delightfully funny adaptation of the story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego from the Book of Daniel. Larry the Cucumber, Bob the Tomato, and Junior Asparagus play employees at the Nezzer Chocolate Factory, run by Nebby K. Nezzer (a take-off on King Nebuchudnezzer), a big pickle. Nezzer is a slave driver, working his employees ungodly hours in making chocolate bunnies. One day, however, feeling unusually charitable on the day they sell their 1000th bunny, Nezzer lets the employees eat as many chocolate bunnies as they want (obviously these are not union workers, or someone would have mentioned time off as a better option). Junior, Bob, and Larry (as Rack, Shack, and Benny, take-offs of the three friends of Daniel) elect not to eat any bunnies, since their moms told them when they were very young that eating a lot of chocolate is not healthy. As a result, most of the other factory employees fall asleep on the job, but Rack, Shack, and Benny stay alert and awake. Nezzer notices this and makes the threesome his junior executives. Once in the front office, they learn that Mr. Nezzer has built a chocolate bunny shrine and plans to require his employees to bow down to a giant iron bunny and sing "The Bunny Song" once a day to show their worship to him. Rack, Shack, and Benny refuse to sing the song (because or bow down and Nezzer banishes them to the furnace. In the true spirit of the Scripture, Nezzer finds that, because of their conviction, God protects the three from burning up. He even observes a fourth "person" in the furnace with them, quite possibly an angel protecting them because they had the courage to stand up for their convictions. Nezzer is impressed and asks for their forgiveness.

This is a wonderful adaptation of the Bible story, teaching kids and adults that God is pleased when we choose to follow His ways, rather that follow the crowd, even if it means losing something such as friends, a job, or even your life. He promises to protect us and lead us through any trials that may arise as a result.

Children and adults alike will like this movie. It contains elements that both will understand, like when Mr. Lunt, Nezzer's assistant, observes Rack, Shack, and Benny still standing after all the other employees have conked out and says, "Actually, boss, I think the tomato is sitting." implying that it is difficult to tell if a talking tomato is sitting or standing, especially when it has no arms or legs.

What I like best is the songs. "Stand Up" at the end is the best "Veggie Tales" song ever. I also liked Larry and Bob's exchange during the "Silly Songs with Larry" segment, where Larry sings in Spanish and Bob interprets.
