Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that VeggieTales is a series of animated movies and TV shows for kids based on Christian beliefs. This VeggieTales DVD is inspired by Ephesians 6:1-3, or "honor your father and mother." The DVD contains some very mild scary situations and some humorous product placement, but otherwise it's fine for preschoolers. Happily, the humor is often geared toward adults so that families can enjoy together. Non-Christians are invited too; the Bible quote comes only in the epilogue, and otherwise, the religious aspect is not discussed in the story itself.
During the "Office Supplies" musical number, the male and female singers cuddle a bit.
Some mean characters try to cheat Pistachio out of his gold coins. A whale swallows Pistachio and his father. During a "musical interlude," a stapler jumps up and snarls at the audience.
Pistachio learns that doing whatever he feels like can lead to trouble. He learns that even though it may not always make sense, his father Gelato's advice and commands are all issued out of love. Gelato only has Pistachio's best interests at heart.
VeggieTales is a thriving franchise with toys, DVDs, merchandise, etc.
