Veggie Tales: The Star of Christmas


It’s Christmas time in 1880’s London. Tired of their lives writing jingles for Durling’s Dental Wash, Cavis Appythart (Bob the Tomato) and Millward Phelps (Larry the Cucumber) are putting the finishing touches on their very first theatrical Christmas Spectacular – “The Princess and the Plumber.” Filled with song, spectacle and more electric lights than 19th Century London has ever seen, Cavis is sure his new show has what it takes to “teach London to love!”

Unfortunately, our boys have hit a few snags. With only three days left, Millward has yet to finish the script, they have no princess, and Cavis still hasn’t convinced England’s most influential theatre critic, Prince Frederick, to attend. To top it all off, little Edmund Gilbert’s (Junior Asparagus) Christmas pageant, featuring the re-unveiling of “The Star of Christmas” a priceless artifact that hasn’t been seen in 79 years, is scheduled for the same night!

If Cavis and Millward are to stand a chance against the celebrated “Star of Christmas” and a determined young asparagus, drastic measures will have to be taken. Will Millward finish the script? Will Cavis get the Prince to attend? Or will their dream of fame, fortune and high-wattage theatrics go up in smoke? Find out as the artists at Big Idea Productions take you on an adventure through bell towers and jail cells, flying over London in a rocket-powered horseless carriage, and all the way to a new understanding of the one Christmas story that really can teach us to love each other!

Dove Review

Big Idea Productions does it again with another thrilling tale of the best-selling “Veggie Tales” children’s video series. This story of the true meaning of Christmas will captivate young viewers and fans of “Veggie Tales.” It is full of music, fun, and of course the whimsical cast of characters normally associated with the “Veggie Tales” series. Join Bob the Tomato, Larry the Cucumber, Junior Asparagus, Archibald Asparagus, Jimmy Gourd, Laura Carrot, Madame Blueberry, Jean Claude Pea and Pa Grape as they show London and us the true meaning of Christmas and how to love.

Kids will love the animation and humor and mom and dad will love the message. I think many parents will want to give this video as a Christmas gift for their young kids this holiday season.
