Storyline

A classic Bible story from the book of Daniel is brought to life by Big Idea Productions. Rack, Shack, and Benny work in a factory that makes chocolate bunnies, owned by Nebbie K. Nezzer (a la King Nebecanezzer). His obsession with the bunnies leads him to build a giant one. Anyone who doesn't bow down and worship is fed to the furnace, where the "bad bunnies" go. While most employees worship it, Rack, Shack, and Benny cling to their Christian faith. Written by The Extra

Goofs

It'd be very wasteful for a chocolate factory to throw all of its misshaped bunnies into a furnace. Chocolate melts around the low thirties Celsius (mid-to-high eighties Fahrenheit), which wouldn't require a furnace at all (let alone a fiery Babylonian-era furnace), and it's very easy to mold.

My 2nd Favorite Veggie Tales Show!
28 May 2018 | by cinephile-27690See all my reviews

I have loved Veggie Tales since birth, and this one is my favorite. It's a Christian show, but even other people love it, and all ages. I'm 19 and I still watch them! As my title states, this is my favorite! I fee they have not topped themselves in the last 23 years! The episode retells the story of the Firey Furnace found in Daniel 3 of the Bible and teaches you to stand up for your beliefs, even when everyone else is doing the opposite. There are intense scenes with the fire aspect but it's worth watching if your child isn't easily scared. (And they shouldn't be- God is bigger than the boogieman!-that's the first show, and my 2nd favorite!) If you love this, and I'm shocked if you don't, then watch every other one! You can thank me by watching them repeatedly!
