When the singing Veggies encounter some car trouble, they're stranded at old, rundown seafood joint where nothing is quite as it seems. As Bob the Tomato and the kids settle in to wait for a tow truck to help get their van back on the road, the "Pirates Who Don't Do Anything" share a little story about a guy named Jonah. Jonah was kind of like a mailman except his messages came straight from God. Jonah loves his job, until the day comes when he has to deliver a message to the people of Nineveh. Instead of carrying out his mission, Jonah turns and sets sail in the opposite direction onboard a pirate ship. Soon Jonah embarks on an adventure that leads him into the belly of a whale, and to the heart of Nineveh for a hilarious showdown.Written by

(at around 20 mins) During Jonah's song rejecting the Lord's call to Nineveh, Jonah is on a giant map of Israel. The city of Joppa is shown well inland. Joppa is a port town on the Mediterranean, and is shown as such in the next scene in the movie. See more »
I am a caterpillar. Well, that's not entirely true. My mother was a caterpillar, my father was a worm, but I'm okay with that now.

Way to go Big Idea! This movie continues the string of excellence that is Veggie Tales. Great animation, very funny dialogs, great music, and enough little bits to keep the adults as engrossed as the kids (how many movie references did you catch?). Since I saw the first video I felt you could not go wrong with VeggieTales and with Jonah, this advice is still valid.
