My kids love VeggieTales and we were excited to receive Here Comes Peter Cottontail, and their brand-new VeggieTales DVD, ‘Twas The Night Before Easter for review. Both DVD titles are definitely full of entertainment -- so much fun for the whole family to watch together!
It's also interesting to note that VeggieTales features a new character, Cassie Cassava, that’s voiced by American Idol finalist and fan favorite Melinda Doolittle!
About Here Comes Peter Cottontail:
Peter Cottontail wants to be the #1 Chief Easter Bunny and everyone in April Valley agrees...except for his archrival, evil Irontail. Hop along with Peter and his friends as they race through time celebrating all of your favorite holidays to deliver the most eggs...and save Easter for children everywhere!
About ‘Twas The Night Before Easter:
It’s Easter time in Crisper County and cable news reporter Marlee Meade (Petunia Rhubarb) is hunting for a way to help others. On a tip that the old town theater will be shut down, Marlee cooks up a plan to save the stage and make a difference through the power of musical theater. With a cast of costume-clad townies, massive props and a 20-foot robot rabbit - “Up With Bunnies” is hatched! There’s only one thing missing – the star of the show! When news spreads that singing sensation Cassie Cassava (Melinda Doolittle) is arriving to perform in her hometown church’s Easter service, Marlee gets worried. Concerned about the competition, she schemes to steal the starlet for her own pageant! But when things go haywire, will it be curtains for Marlee’s dreams – or will she discover the true meaning of Easter and what helping others is really all about?
About VeggieTales Hosanna CD:
