“VeggieTales: The League of Incredible Vegetables” teaches a lesson in fear

Spiders. Snakes. The Dark. Heights. Monkeys. Gum. The things people – and vegetables – fear are many and varied. Based on Psalm 56:3 (ESV) which says, “When I am afraid, I will put my trust in You,” Big Idea Entertainment’s newest episode, “VeggieTales: The League of Incredible Vegetables” teaches a lifelong lesson in handling fear.

In the Bumblyburg Science Museum, Junior and Laura see the most dangerous item in the whole museum; the ‘Fear-dar,’ a weapon that draws from fear to charge its freeze-gun. When three penguins steal the Fear-dar, Alfred realizes this is beyond Larry Boy’s ability and calls The League of Incredible Vegetables –  S-Cape [Mr. Lunt], Vogue [Petunia Rhubarb] and Thingamabob [Bob the Tomato]  – come to Bumblyburg’s rescue and capture the purloining penguins.

Impressed by Junior Asparagus’ quick thinking, the League invites the youngster to join them as a junior member. While Junior is busy trying on super-suits, the criminal fowls escape security and snatch the Fear-dar once again to take it to Dr. Flurry. The mad scientist plans to use the weapon to get rid of the League and take over Bumblyburg forever.

Can the League face their fears, protect Bumblybury and help recover the Fear-dar? Can Junior remember to turn to the One who is bigger than all his fears? Can Larry-boy find enough money to buy nachos at the museum’s snack-bar? These questions and more are answered in “VeggieTales: The League of Incredible Vegetables.”

What VeggieTales would be complete without a Silly Song? Drawing from the super-themed story, the League gathers for a meal in the Silly Song, “Supper Hero.” In addition, the video includes a brand-new League theme song and music video by GRAMMY-nominated and Dove Award-winning group, Newsboys.

Since its inception, Big Idea has set a high standard in quality animation, story-telling and all around entertainment while teaching important lessons. This video – the fourth title in a series of DVD releases that stars the popular “LarryBoy” character – maintains that standard. With a super blend of hilarious Veggie humor, pop culture references and lessons on facing fears, “VeggieTales: The League of Incredible Vegetables” is a video that Veggie-fans of all ages will enjoy.
