Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that VeggieTales DVDs are Christian-themed stories for children. While the bulk of the Veggie audience is religious, non-Christian families could also enjoy the well-animated, clever stories (but may want to fast-forward the intro and ending parts with Bob the Tomato and Larry the Cucumber, which feature a Bible verse and a "God thinks you're special" message). Their latest show is derived from The Wizard of Oz, but is essentially the parable of the prodigal son. There's nothing objectionable in the material, so even preschoolers can see it.
