Review Talk: Veggie Tales “Robin Good And His Not So Merry Men”

Ever since I’ve had younger siblings, as well as when I started having children, Veggie Tales has been a part of my life. I have always loved the lessons taught in Veggie Tales. I still remember the first Veggie Tales video I saw, Where’s God When I’m Scared? While it had been released in 1993, years before my first child, it was the first one we watched and I instantly knew this was something good. Silly stories that teach a real lesson! Today, years later, you will still catch me belting out a song (or a few) from different Veggie Tales episodes…they are just so catchy. The newest release is no different.

Recently released, was one of the newest additions to the Veggie Tales family, Robin Good and His Not-So-Merry Men ($14.99). As with all the other episodes and movies they have, it teaches a lesson in a way that kids will listen and understand it. With favorite characters such as Larry The Cucumber, Mr. Lunt, Archibald The Asparagus, and many more this new story is keeping with the theme of making sure the kids learn an important lesson in a fun way.

Check out the synopsis and clip:

A long time ago, in the faraway town of Bethlingham, roved a band of merry men, led by the fearless Robin Good. Their mission: to help people by fundraising from the rich and giving to the poor! But when a greedy Prince starts stealing the townspeople’s hams, donations are down and Robin’s friends take off and decide to give robbing from the rich a try. Feeling rejected, Robin thinks things can’t get any worse, until he finds out that the ham-hoarding Prince has also captured his friends. Can Robin overcome his own hurt, rescue his friends and restore the townspeople’s hope?

The movie runs 50 minutes and includes these bonus features:

  • Leapin’ Leap Year Lesson
  • “Fun”-Raising with Larry
  • “Things Will Get Better” – Singalong Song
  • “Prince of Ham” – Singalong Song
  • Robin Good’s Guide to Handling Hurt – Discussion Guide

We sat down as a family and watched it. My oldest isn’t as interested as he once was, being almost 13, but my other two enjoyed Robin Good and His Not-So-Merry Men as did I. I will never be too old for Veggie Tales. After the movie I asked them what they learned from it and their response was “Always do the right thing, even if others aren’t“, “That you are going to get hurt sometimes but God’s there to help you” which are big lessons we are teaching them already. I still love the way Veggie Tales takes a serious subject and brings it to a level where kids aren’t intimidated by the message it’s teaching. Veggie Tales will continue to be a part of my life for as long as there are kids around. Don’t forget to check out Veggie Tales website and have a little fun!

Last I want to leave you with this, as I said the message teaches about hurt and sometimes it’s hard for kids (and us adults) to handle that hurt.  I thought this Veggie Tales poster “Robin Good Guide To Handling Hurt” was fitting to share:
