Adventures in Booga Booga Land - Volume 1 (DVD) By Richard Milner
In a society and culture- where morally devoid cartoons monopolize the market, whereas kids sit tranfixed for hours in front of the TV set, watching the same re-runs of brainless Nickelodeon and Disney sitcom shows- shaping the values- or lack therof- of so many kids today, I eagerly awaited the new DVD- Adventures in Booga Booga Land Volume 1. Making use of the cartoon format to deliver a moral message, this entertaining DVD is sure to grab the attention of today's young cartoon watching children. This DVD is a series of stories- actually cartoons, depicting the stories from the bible. The animals play the roles of the characters in Jesus' parables of the new testament of the bible. Even if a child is not familiar with the bible or the stories of the bible- any child will be sure to enjoy this DVD. Basically this is cartoon entertainment for children with moral stories. This is a clever outreach idea to deliver the bible messages to young children. Nevertheless even if a child does understand the biblical message, one can be assured at minimum, the child viewed a morally upstanding cartoon rather than a debased, tasteless, suggestively innapropriate propaganda piece that the secular, corporate television stations have choosen. As a blooger for Thomas Nelson's booksneeze.com blogger program, I had the opportunity to request this DVD for free for the purposes of writing a review. I was not required to write a positive review and the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
