The Flizbins: Cowboys and Bananas


When Hero City’s cleaning robot goes haywire who could possibly be important enough to save the day? None other than SuperFin, the greatest Flizbin of all time… at least in Finley’s imagination. But what if you’re not a superhero? Can you still be important?

In this wild and woolly retelling of the story of the lost lamb, children will learn a valuable lesson in just how important we are to God.

Dove Review

These characters are lovable and so is this DVD! Kids everywhere will enjoy these fuzzy friends, Finley and Moss, Bigsby and Sage, and more. The “human” characters are likable too! Watch as Charity, David, Tim and Shenyel sing and dance, and entertain families in a wholesome but fun way. When a cleaning robot runs amok it is up to “Super” Fin to take it on! In Hero City a character accidentally hits a fuzzy reporter but Fin makes everything right by story’s end.

One of the inspiring songs in this DVD is about dancing because of God’s love. This DVD includes variety as the viewer even gets a Christian Rap song titled, “I’m in love with a God who is in love with me.” For any kid who has ever felt unimportant, even Super Fin faces a moment like this but Tim encourages him. The animation is very nice in this video and this creative DVD is very wholesome; for example, a root beer float is served in the local “saloon”!

The violence is only as bad as the sheriff hitting the local “baddie”, Big Bad Wolf, with a banana. The two then shoot bananas at each other but rest assured the good guy will prevail. The story of the one missing sheep is shared too. Come on over to the Okey Dokey Corral and join this fun-loving gang. This DVD is fun with a capital “F” and your kids will love it. We highly recommend it for all ages and gladly award our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal to this wonderful DVD. Even the special features are fun and wholesome. This DVD gets five Doves from us, our highest rating.
