Veggie Tales Happy Together!
85 minutes
Big Idea

Happy Together! Is a repackaging of three previous stories. Sheerluck Holmes and the Golden Ruler shows a detective and his assistant in a tale of theft and pursuit of an artifact. Elements of the Indiana Jones movies show up, and the main issue is Holmes' refusal to share any of the credit for anything the team achieves.

The Grapes of Wrath deals with forgiveness as Junior Asparagus struggles to forgive a group of sour grapes who have made fun of him. Esther: The Girl Who Became Queen deals with faith, responsibility to others, and the perseverance needed to do whatever is right, regardless of circumstances.

Three Silly Songs are featured: "Pants," "Larry Sings the Blues," and "The Dance of the Cucumber." The latter two are the funnier, with Larry putting into perspective what is really worth complaining about, and what is actually just minor inconvenience.
