Storyline

A classic Bible story from the book of Daniel is brought to life by Big Idea Productions. Rack, Shack, and Benny work in a factory that makes chocolate bunnies, owned by Nebbie K. Nezzer (a la King Nebecanezzer). His obsession with the bunnies leads him to build a giant one. Anyone who doesn't bow down and worship is fed to the furnace, where the "bad bunnies" go. While most employees worship it, Rack, Shack, and Benny cling to their Christian faith. Written by The Extra

Trivia

This episode was said the be the most hardest VeggieTales episode to make. See more »

Goofs

It'd be very wasteful for a chocolate factory to throw all of its misshaped bunnies into a furnace. Chocolate melts around the low thirties Celsius (mid-to-high eighties Fahrenheit), which wouldn't require a furnace at all (let alone a fiery Babylonian-era furnace), and it's very easy to mold.

Quotes

Laura Carrot: [singing] Good morning, George, how are you? / I hope you're feeling fine. / I'd love to stay and talk / but it's almost eight o'clock ,/ and I haven't got the time. / Because we work real hard at the Chocolate Factory. / We start at 8, and we don't get lunch till 3.

Alternate Versions

In the original VHS release, "The Bunny Song" sung by Mr. Nezzer included lyrics "I don't love my Mom or my Dad" and "I won't go to church and I won't go to school". The song was supposed to be a song written for the bad guy in the story and is a song kids are not supposed to sing, but kids did start singing it because it was so catchy. Big Idea started getting complaints from parents about this, so in newer VHS releases and on DVD releases, it was still a bad song but the lyrics mentioned above were changed too "I don't love my soup or my bread" and "I won't eat no beans and I won't eat tofu".

Veggies with morals...who thought this great idea up?
21 November 2002 | by MovieAddict2016See all my reviews

Computer animated veggies...who would think of something kids hate to eat and apply morals to them, to make the best Christian videos ever? BigIdea productions. I think we all need to salute these guys. They take the same technique as the Simpsons (few people do all the voices, great humor, etc.) and apply, as I said before, morals. Great for kids, and even fun for us adults.

5/5 STARS
