As an adult with no children of my own, I wasn't sure what I was going to make of any of these cartoons. But I agreed to try this one, being a Sherlock Holmes fan, and also an admirer of Don Quixote. As it turned out, it's a fun, funny tribute to the original source material as well as driving home a good point to the kids. The music is catchy, the stories are engaging and well done, and the whole thing is very clever but not overly aware of its own cleverness. Yes, the content is religious in nature, but they never deny that. The overwhelming appeal of VeggieTales is that they preach without being preachy, and this is a wonderful and engaging part of the VT lineup -- I fully intend, having seen this, to look into some of the other titles. Many kudos to the creators for inventive and winsome ideas!
