Cavis Appythart and Milward Phelps (I loved the names!) are played by Bob Tomato and Larry Cucumber in this story set in 1880’ London. Electricity is very new and rocket science has hardly started so when both play a major part in this story you know you are in for some fun!
Cavis is trying to be a great producer with Milward as the writer of his show. They have borrowed a theatre and just need the famous actress who is adored by the prince, to take part, to insure that the prince will attend and hopefully review the show favourably and make it a success. Of course nothing goes to plan, and Cavis’ plan to teach London how to love is bound to fail, after all the source of love is being depicted by the nativity play put on by the children at the church across town.
All the usual silly songs, mistakes, misfortunes and excitement that we have come to love in Veggietale episodes are here. If you are a Veggietale fan you will love it. The Christmas message of Love is here for all to see.
