This children’s animated show has three episodes in which we watch Marty the monkey and Gerard the giraffe play out three parables. The parables covered are: Parable of the Workers in the Vineyard from Matthew 20:1-16; Parable of the Wise and the Foolish Builders from Luke 06:47-49; and Parable of the Lamp Under the Bowl from Matthew 5:14-16.
We were not impressed with this video as far as Biblical content. It seemed very watered down and although I understand that the intended audience is quite young I wish there was more than 2 minutes of Bible explanation. The animation is ok but not great. The colors are bright. My 18 month old was somewhat interested, but this was not a big winner in our household. We would not recommend this DVD to another family.
