A contemporary Christian view of the plot outline and summary
31 October 1999 | by skyskipperSee all my reviews

. This series is an upfront Christian presentation about the world of an eleven year old boy named Nicholas and his little cartoon friend McGee. Nicholas is a completely normal kid who uses a passage from Bible to learn about life's everyday issues. In the 12 episodes (each 30 minutes long) Nicholas learns:

-telling lies hurts others, especially if the lie is mistaken for the truth.

-the value of being humble and accepting that some people have certain talents you don't.

-the value of obedience and being wise when making decisions

-the value of showing love and kindness to others--no matter who they are.

-when you trust in God you never have to worry about being alone or afraid.

-jealousy causes a lot of hurt, anger, and frustration--especially for the one who's jealous.

-about the process and the payoff of making right (and wrong) decisions.

-the importance of keeping things in the right perspective and putting faith in God, not people.

-about God's love for people who are hard to love.

-about courage and where to find it.

-the importance of caring for others and "loving your neighbor as yourself".

-about making choices and hopefully discovering what's really important in the process.

The series can be ordered individually or as a set from or from the producers: Focus on the Family/Tyndale House.
