Veggitales
20 December 2006 | by See all my reviews

This is one of the best veggietale shorts. Just as in previous episodes, it is filled with fun inside jokes that make it just as enjoyable for adults as it is for the children. Take for example the line "Hey desperado, you've gotta come to your senses!" You especially have to love the Boyz in the Sink Bellybutton song, a delightful farce on the recent trend of boy bands, with various veggie characters portraying a few of the familiar boy band faces. Even after hearing The Ballad of Little Joe a few times a day for the last month, being that it captivates my little toddler, I still love it just as much. Consider it highly recommended from a huge fan of veggietales.
