VeggieTales ‘Beauty and the Beet’ Interview & GIVEAWAY

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

beautyandbeet1I must confess that when I was preparing for my interview with Mike Nawrocki (co-creator of VeggieTales) and Larry the Cucumber I never expected that it would become a memory of some of the best few minutes of my life. We talked about the history of the VeggieTales and what makes these fun videos so special for kids. I was most interested to chat about the newest episode “Beauty and the Beet”.

I have included the audio of the interview so that you can listen to what they had to say. “Beauty and the Beet” will be released on DVD and instant download beginning October 14, 2014.

Here are a few excerpts from that interview:

Pamela Rose (speaking of Season 5 American Idol Alum Kellie Pickler who plays Mirabelle Sweet Potato) “Tell us what it was like working with Kellie.”

Mike: “Kellie … actually has a wonderful, wonderful singing voice and we knew that going in … she’s a wonderful actress and she just has this super charming charactery squeak to her voice that is just really endearing …”

Pamela Rose: “What is so special about this episode?”

Mike: “… the lesson behind it all is loving the unlovable; of unconditional love that God first loved us even though we were undeserving of that love so then in turn we should love others”

We love him, because he first loved us. 1 John 4:19

But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners,
Christ died for us. Romans 5:8

I was truly caught Laughing Out Loud when Larry broke out into song during our interview. If you know anything about Larry, you know that he has been the leader of the VeggieTale Silly Songs since the beginning. I will let you listen to the interview to hear what he had to sing.  When I asked if either Mike or Larry had anything else to share with our readers, here was Larry’s classical and popular response:

“Well you know one of the things that I always like to remind the kids of is God made them special! And He loves you very much! Goodbyyyyyyyye.”
