Have your children ever asked what Bob the Tomato and Larry the Cucumber do after they say goodbye?  Well, now we know!  There is a new Netflix original series titled "VeggieTales in the House" which takes place in the famous kitchen where Bob and Larry read letters, tell stories, and share wisdom from Qwerty.

This spin off from VeggieTales launched on Wednesday. There are currently five episodes and each one has two eleven minute stories complete with the bad jokes and fun songs that kids love.

Long time Veggie fans might need to brace themselves at first.  These shows are animated by DreamWorks studios so, while you will see the Big Idea characters, they are going to look a tad bit different.

Take a look at the trailer and see for yourself.



You can see the facial expressions are far more sophisticated and there is more detail.  Deep down they are the same characters we know and love, and most important the episodes are still based on Christian values and encourage viewers to be virtuous.

Now, wherever you access Netflix, you can also access VeggieTales.  That's great news for moms and pretty great for kids, too.

I've also got some fun .pdf files with activities, recipes, and craft ideas.  these will help your kids get accustomed to the new look and provide some fun, too.  Click the links to download or print these fun files.
And here is more fun news!  There is a new VeggieTales Holiday Hotline!
