Beauty and the Beet - Giveaway and Review

Taking a lesson straight from the Bible and putting it into terms that kids and even adults will love is what has made Veggie Tales so successful. In the episode Beauty and the Beet, Kelly Pickler guest stars as the voice of Mirabelle, the lead singer of a rising band called the VeggieTunes. As they are working hard at finding new and bigger places to sing, they finally get the break they were hoping for, singing in Vegetable Square Garden. Only in order to get their in time, they will need to take the tour bus on the road during a snow storm. Against their better judgment, they find the road conditions are too hazardous to continue and find lodging at the Alpine Sweets Motel.

When they arrive, they find that the motel is friendly enough but there is only one other guest in the motel. With dreary interiors, they decide to stay for one night but they can only afford one room for seven guests. Bob Tomato stars as the hotel cook who prepares a sumptuous feast but when the guest claim they can't afford it, the Beet, makes his conditions known. No one gets anything free in his motel. Unable to pay for the room or the meal, Beet agrees to let the band work to pay for their stay by cleaning the room and performing for the dinner show.

Along the way, sweet potato Mirabelle soon charms her way into the heart of the Beet, whose love for music helps calm the savage beast inside of him. Mirabelle tries to teach him to sing, but soon his temper gets the best of him, and soon the band agrees that it's time to leave. As they make their way to Vegetable Square Garden, Mirabelle feels like they still have some unfinished business to attend to with the Beet and even though he doesn't deserve it, they should still try and help him out especially when an undercover news team shows up in hopes of showing viewers what a low star motel the Alpine Sweets really is. Will Mirabelle be able to help Beet save his reputation? Or will his temper simply get the best of him again? You'll have to pick this one up to find out.

I received Veggie Tales: Beauty and the Beet compliments of FlyBy Promotions for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation for a favorable review and the opinions contained here are strictly my own. Having raised my own daughters on Veggie Tales, I couldn't wait to watch this one. It teaches the value of unconditional love utilizing the idea the no matter how people treat us, we can still show them love just like God shows us. There is even another Silly Song with Larry, "Mac and Cheese" which tells the story of the invention of macaroni and cheese. There are 8 songs in this delightful and truly charming DVD from Kelly Pickler that you will find yourself singing long after the movie is over. Plus there are some great bonus features, a Behind the Scenes with Kelly Pickler, Sing Along Songs from the movie, A Very Veggie Jukebox, Downloadable activities and so much more. The DVD is approximately 56 minutes in length and something you know your kids will enjoy and want to watch over and over. I easily give this one 5 out of 5 Veggie Stars!
