Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that VeggieTales: Minnesota Cuke and the Search for Samson's Hairbrush is the title of the longest story in this three-segment collection. Two are sweet animated stories about "what God says to do about bullies." The message encourages everyone to find a way to love everyone else, including one's enemies. Some parents may question the usefulness of this dictum as it would apply in extreme bullying situations. Scariness is limited to a wave of melted ice cream that threatens to sweep away Minnesota Cuke's friend, but he rescues her before any harm is done. Canadians are jokingly portrayed as evil.
