As many of you may or may not be aware, the current owner of Big Idea, Inc—the company that makes VeggieTales—is in financial trouble and is selling off pieces in bankruptcy. What you may not know is that the new owners are the old owners:
Way back in 2003, the assets of Big Idea Productions were bought by a company called Classic Media, run by two guys named John Engelman and Eric Ellenbogen. In 2007 John and Eric sold Classic Media and the new Big Idea to a British company called Entertainment Rights

…Lloyds of London successfully sold off the assets of Entertainment Rights last week. To whom? John Engelman and Eric Ellenbogen. The same two guys who owned Classic and Big Idea two years ago.
It will be interesting to see what happens to Bob and Larry from here, but it would be interesting (would it not) if this enabled them to get on JellyTelly or allowed Phil Vischer to step in and get them back?
Peter Plum graduated top of his drawer in the crisper, but still can’t seem to get on VeggieTales DVD’s. So every day he tries to figure out how to get into the shows while reviewing them for VeggieTales Review. When he’s not writing reviews, he’s busy with his growing family of fruits and attempting to keep things fresh.
