Storyline

Bob the Tomato and Larry the Cucumber appear as Cavis Appythart and Millward Phelps, respectively--two jingle writers based loosely on Gilbert and Sullivan. The setting is 1880s London, and they've written a musical called "The Princess and the Plumber", which they plan to open on Christmas Eve. Cavis thinks the production will "teach London how to love". But children at nearby St. Bart's Church are planning a nativity play for the same evening, and they plan to feature the Star of Christmas, a religious artifact unseen by the public for decades. The London Post Gazette writes a front-page story about the nativity play and the Star, and Cavis and Millward hatch a plan to make their musical better than the children's play. In the end, they learn about the true meaning of Christmas. Written by Jonathan A. Cullum

Trivia

Phil Vischer originally wanted to use Rebecca St. James' recording of 'O Come, O Come Emmanuel' for the end titles for this video, but was unable to acquire the rights (a new recording was used instead, but with a similar musical arrangement). However, because of the contact he had with St. James during the negotiations, he was able to arrange for her to do the character voicework as Hope in the sequel, An Easter Carol (2004). See more »

One of the greatest Veggie Tales shows.
20 August 2018 | by cinephile-27690See all my reviews

On You Tube, I saw a video of a guy who ranked every Veggie Tales video. This is the only one he gave a perfect 10. He later explains why. I watched the show afterwards and agreed that this was the greatest VT show.

Allow me to put my own input on why. The movie's moral is about what it means to love. The Bible has many elements of love, and that's the main message(examples- Christ dying, 1 Corinthians 13). This is the best illustration of it.

The humor is great too. One example is Cavis tells he has something London has never seen before. Millward excitedly asks: "You've got a monkey that can yodel?" It's just a hilarious line. (And that's not what Cavis has.) The Moyer chase and ride to the church near the end is hilarious as well.

The music is catchy too, the song Plugged Up Love is one of my favorite Veggie Tales songs.

Great humor, catchy songs, and an important message. That's where Veggie Tales shines, and here's where it excels.
