Dove Review

Here is a terrific DVD which your kids will delight in. The characters are rich, the plots are moral, and the action is awesome.

There are seven episodes on this DVD. In “Moving Truck” LT thinks his parents plan to move. He hides as he doesn’t want to leave Crushington Park but he soon learns things are not what they seem to be. In the next episode, “Fright Busters”, the characters learn that many times scary things are no more than a shadow or the wind and that the better one knows something, the less room there is for fear. In “Eyes on the Prize”, Big Foot and the others show off the Crushington Cup. LT is responsible for it but leaves it unattended. He soon has to find it before it is crushed in the Crusher.

In episode four, “Like Father, Like Son”, LT learns that too much fun at the wrong time doesn’t work. He is supposed to replace a bolt and fix the sliding door. But LT and Big Foot have fun and neglect the job at hand and another lesson is learned. In “Winner’s Circle” the gang has a fond look back at their favorite races and memories. 11 Timothy 4:7 is used as it is mentioned one should finish the race one begins. In the sixth episode, “Truck Trouble”, the kids all talk about times when they got into trouble but grew in integrity. In one example a character lets Big Foot know about a mistake he had made and feels badly about. Finally, in a bonus episode, episode seven, “Trucktacular Truckathalon”, LT wants to team up with Big Foot in a race but has to team up with Mom instead. LT is discouraged at first but Mom is pretty resourceful and things turn out better than he had hoped for.

This fantastic DVD includes a scripture reference at the end of every episode which applies to the theme of each show. We are very happy to award this DVD our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for all ages. This is a fun watch!
