Oh! I do love VeggieTales and so do my grandchildren, though most think they are too old for them now. When I received this DVD by accident (I am now retired - again) I was delighted with the opportunity to review it.

At the first 'oompah' of the introduction I was smiling and little ones would soon be singing along with the familiar opening song.

Junior Asparagus is afraid of all sorts of things, but when it comes to an emergency he overcomes his fears to thwart the plans of the evil Dr Flurry, he acts quickly and prevents a nasty accident. As a reward he is recruited as a Junior member of the League of Incredible Vegetables, a formidable force with many incredible suits and vehicles to help them in their quest for the vital piece of equipment Dr Flurry has had his penguins steal from Bumblyburg museum. It is not till after Larry's Silly Song halfway through that we find how the league gets on. Not too well to start with, but when Junior puts his trust in God and loses all his fears, he saves the day and becomes a full member of the League. Hooray!

As good as ever - well worth purchasing!
