Veggie Tales I want to see

Happy Place
Have you ever watched the computer animated series Veggie Tales? I was discussing Cain and Abel with a friend of mine, and he asked wasn't Cain a watermelon? Tongue in cheek of course, he's like that, but it immediately made me think about Veggie Tales.

Then I wondered... how would Veggie Tales do the story of Cain and Abel?
Or... how about Samson and Delilah? Samson has his eyes plucked out and is shaved bald, then crushes his enemies under a building.
Or the story of Lot and the fall of Sodom and Gomorrah? Lot offers his daughters to the mob of Sodom, to protect the angels, the city is burned to the ground, and his wife is turned to salt.

Mind you, Veggie Tales isn't known for playing the story straight, but I am wondering how they'd work around those.

We've refused to let our kids watch veggie tales. EVen the pirate movie, and we're pretty big on anything pirate-themed.

I've watched a little of it, baby-sitting someone's kids. It amused me to no end, but yeah, I could see some people not wanting their kids to watch it.

I just checked Wikipedia & am amused by this one from "Minnesota Cuke and the Search for Samson's Hairbrush"

A Parkman from New York City arrives to inform Minnesota about a plot to steal Samson's hairbrush, which is believed to possess the great powers of Samson. Apparently, Canadians want to use the power of the hairbrush to take over both halves of Niagara Falls.

... *snickers*

All I know about Veggie Tales is there's these pirates that don't do much of anything at all...

Yeah, Lot. Offering up his daugher to be raped, and *he's* the one that God wants to save because he's the only decent person there?

Well, at least he's probably decent to the men folk, right?

Both daughters, who were virgins. Who, after Sodom & Gommorah were destroyed, got him drunk & slept with him and started other ancient races, apparently each on the first try! Must've been awesome booze.

... Now that I think about it, if they escaped a catastrophe by the skin of their teeth, where'd they get the booze so fast?

Well, if Bob the Tomato's playing Samson, we'd end up with ketchup...

As for Sodom & Gommorrah, Larry the Cucumber plays Lots ('Lots of what?' running gag there) who lives in Sodom with his family. One night he takes the Gourd brothers in, who are angels in disguise. The Rapscallions (evil scallions) come along and try to get the gourds to come out for a round or two of pinata. Lots refuses and instead offers to send out The French Peas to do the can-can.

At this point, things get rather silly ...
