Remember kids, God made you special and he loves you very much!
>I wanna go to hell, Hell looks fucking radical, and heaven looks so boring
but theyre the same thing its just hell is an eternity without god and heaven is an eternity *with* god
its not a fiery inferno/pearly gates kind of thing
Don't I get a phone caaaaaallllllll
So what kind of religious show was this, a pushy moralistic one or a fairly chill well meaning one? I'm not used to these sorts of things, being a Europoor.
The whole movie was more of metaphor for the Christian faith as a whole, with the King as God, and the villain as Satan, than a specific Bible story adaptation. I don't know what significance the rock monsters had, though. Those seem to be getting more and more popular in Bible adaptations.
Chill and fun. My parents weren't the overly pushy moralistic religious types, but they showed me Veggie Tales. Mostly, it's just Bible story adaptations, teaching kids to forgive and not to lie, that sort of thing.
Dreamworks is rebooting it on Netflix, with Doug Tenappel and Mike Nelson being among the crew on it.
chill happy morals, not at all pushy with anything. Religiousness is there but not to judge you or boss you around, just as the source of the morals and themes, bible stories adapted into wacky and goofy funny cartoon stories.
The jokes and gags were good and timeless, the songs were of course silly, and the whole thing memorable. For anyone who grew up with it, even if they grew out of the more religious stuff like me, it's a soft spot you can't ever be mad at.
Considering how religious Tennapel and Nelson are, duh.
Dreamworks acquired Veggietales a couple years ago when they bought out Classic Media, which owned the libraries of UPA, Jay Ward, about half the Rankin Bass stuff, Lone Ranger, Veggietales, Lassie, Harvey Comics, Voltron and a bunch of other stuff.

Veggie Tales was awesome, and even though I think religion is harmful, I don't think that anything that VT tried to teach kids was harmful. You can really tell that the creators were less evangelists and more just people who wanted to focus on universal morals, biblical storytelling, and to have an outlet for their silly creativity.
I'm a mega-liberal, non-believer and I say Veggie Tales is A-OK in my book.
>religion is harmful
They would look fine if they didn't have those colored irises.
yeah yeah, he was pretty much outright admitting to being that dumbass, just to nail in the point. You know people can think shit like that and not be a preachy fedorafag. Sort of like how vegitales can be religious and not be preachy and terrible for it.
But man, somehow you can't help but not be a faggot throwing memes at everyone. What's with that?

It's called bait. The only winning move is not to reply.
Other than that, pretty cool and tolerant thread. Sometimes you're all right /co/.
>he spent all that time replying to me because of a fucking overused meme even with how obvious bait it was
Okay but you look even stupider now because of that just so you know. Best not to ruin your reputation on an anonymous imageboard! :^)
you ignorant fucking dick
I don't think we ever finished one of their movies or shows in a class, we would always end up watching it till the action happened and then instantly stopped.
I think the teacher knew we were starting to like it.
I like how the first 5 or so episodes are just regular, kid friendly cartoons. Veggie Tales waits until your parents leave the room before shoving the bible down your throat.
At least that's what I remember watching it.
I must've been 15 at the time
