Applying the Moral

Meet the Robinsons

Are you aware of the lessons that are embedded in the cartoons that your child watches?

Take for example Disney’s Meet The Robinsons.  I won’t spoil the movie for you, but last night when we were teaching the story of Cain and Abel we were able to use the whole motivation behind the bad guy in the movie to try to explain what happened with Cain so that he would get to the point that he could kill his brother.

3-2-1 Penguins Save the Planets

321 Penguins Save the Planet

Have you run out and got your copy of Save the Planets! yet?  I have to admit that buying a set of shows that originally aired on television and are now being repackaged into a DVD to get me to buy really doesn’t appeal that much to me.

The Amazon reviews sing their praises, however:

If you’re new to 3-2-1 Penguins, they are wonderful. The animation is beautiful, with rich colors, and a three dimensional appearance. The penguins are hysterical, and the messages are meaningful, yet simple enough for a child to understand. Often a Bible verse is used to back up the moral of the story. They are done by the same people who do Veggie Tales, only now everybody has hands.

VeggieTales: Dave and the Giant Pickle

****

 

From the Cover:

Have you ever felt too small to do a really big job? That’s what a little shepherd boy named Dave feels when his big brothers head off to defend their country, leaving Dave behind with the sheep. “Big people do big things, and little people do little things,”they tell him. They’re in for a surprise, however, when they find out their foe is much bigger than they thought! This telling of the classic biblical story of David and Goliath teaches kids that “with God, all things are possible.” It makes no difference whether you’re 9-feet tall or 2-feet tall — with God’s help, even little guys can do big things!
