Making the Grades

Charles Dickens meets Bob the Tomato and Larry the Cucumber in Veggie Tales' latest endeavor, An Easter Carol. Donning the personas introduced in The Star of Christmas, Cavis (Phil Vischer) and Millward (Mike Nawrocki) bite off more than they can chew when they request to take off Easter Sunday.

Instead of the expected day of rest, their boss Ebenezer Nezzer unveils his plans to build Easter Land--a place to celebrate Easter all year. Concentrating solely on the trappings of the holiday, the chocolate factory owner has forgotten the religious significance of the occasion enough that he has decided to tear down the local church and build his theme park on the land.

Shocked and appalled, the pair of salad fixings determines to sabotage his intentions. But a higher power is already at work. Hope, in the form of a music box angel (voiced by Rebecca St. James), appears to the pea-brained business mogul to help him understand why "Easter means no death."

Amidst mechanized chickens, plastic eggs, the ridiculous antics of Bob and Larry, and an explosive climax, Veggie Tales: An Easter Carol explains the Christian belief of everlasting life in a simplistic manner. Using Grammy Award winning St. James' musical talents and a series of stained glass windows to depict the life, death and resurrection of Jesus, the zany characters present this message with a measure of reverence.
