Are you ready for a family-friendly series on Netflix with positive faith-based messages and short episodes perfect for young children both at home and on the go? Well, the wait is over! VeggieTales in the House debuts TODAY!! Woo hoo!
I had the opportunity to interview VeggieTales Co-Creator Phil Vischer (and voice of Bob the Tomato), and he gave me some insight on the new series, why they are taking this new direction, what we can expect from the new series, and even some insight on how he and Bob the Tomato are alike! I hope to have that feedback available soon!
In the meantime, I’d love to share one of Phil’s favorite episodes to talk about. It is “Bob and the Awesome Frosting Mustache,” in which Bob orders special “mustache frosting” on TV. He is convinced that a mustache is what he needs to boost his self-confidence. But in true VeggieTales fashion, Madame Blueberry helps him see that Bob is perfect just the way God made him.
We got a sneak peek at a couple of the episodes from VeggieTales in the House, and we loved them! Packed in each 11 minute episode was an important message like caring for a pet and how it relates to God trusting us with little things and big things.
Even Beliefnet.com shared their thoughts on VeggieTales in the House. They called the series “a breath of fresh air in the world of children’s programming.”
We are so excited to watch more episodes, and I, as a parent, am thrilled for a great faith-based series the kids can watch on Netflix. I love the short episodes with the great messages! It’s perfect for holding their attention and for those moments where they just need a little entertainment while not being tied to the screen for long.
