Giveaway: VeggieTales Happy Together


This past January, Big Idea Entertaiment repackaged three of their shows into one DVD. The Happy Together DVD combines stories on family, friendship and faith, all rolled into one big "happy together" package. Here's what's on the DVD:

Sheerluck Holmes and the Golden Ruler takes you on a mysterious adventure with Sheerluck Holmes and his venerable sidekick Dr. Watson as they work together, their forensic fortitude can solve any crime.

The Grapes of Wrath... What do you get when a bunch of very cranky grapes make fun of Junior Asparagus? One sad asparagus and one big problem. Will Junior ever be able to forgive them?!

Esther The Girl Who Became Queen tells the story of a new queen. When Esther has the weight of the world on her shoulders and the fate of her people in her hands, can she find the courage to do what's right?!
   

There are also some bonus silly songs included: Pants, Dance of the Cucumber, and Larry Sings the Blues.

Here's a preview:


It's the typical fun you've come to expect from the VeggieTales name. Here's a little bonus video of their "outtakes" - I thought this was so sweet:

Disclosure: We received the a copy of Happy Together for the purpose of review. Confession: I trust VeggieTales so I didn't exactly sit down and watch this with my kids, but just heard them giggle from a distance. This is why I didn't realize it was actually a repackaged compilation until I sat down to post the review. Clue phone ringing! Hello? It's Megan...  I keep a proper disclosure statement available right here.

I get the earworm of "Where is my hairbrush" going in my head often! LOL!! "The Pirates That Don't Do Anything" is pretty awesome, too.

The Hersheys review was good. The crafts were cute but there is no way that they would get made here. The chocolate would be eaten way before crafts could be made.
