Word Entertainment Inc Sheerluck Holmes and the Golden Ruler, VeggieTales DVD

Friendship and how to treat others is the theme in this side-splitting VeggieTales episode! In the title story, Sheerluck Holmes (Larry) and Dr. Watson (Bob) can solve any crime. Their latest case: Someone has stolen the most valuable treasure in Buckingham Palace--the Golden Ruler! But when Sheerluck takes all the credit for the pair's sleuthing savvy, he risks dissolving the perfect partnership, and the Golden Ruler could be lost forever. Will Sheerluck remember to treat others like he wants to be treated in time to save the artifact--and his friendship?

You'll also enjoy the story, "The Asparagus of La Mancha." Don Quixote (Archibald Asparagus) is the owner of a prosperous little Cafe called La Mancha. His good friend Poncho (Mr. Lunt) works with him, but when a big, popular chain restaurant moves in across the street, their little cafe hits hard times. But Poncho sticks by Don, who learns that true friends do what's best for each other, no matter how difficult that may be. And, in true silly style, Larry sings a silly song about gated communities.

While waiting for The League of Extraordinary Vegetables to be released, I was interested in finding more titles to watch from the people of Big Idea. One in particular, gave me some interest because I have enjoyed some of the Sherlock Holmes stories, and I know when Veggietales makes a remake of a story they tend to do it very well. Yes I wanted to watch Sheerluck Holmes and the Golden Ruler, because of the story element, and I was also curious what they had to say about friendship… Sheerluck Holmes and the Golden Ruler is actually two separate stories contained within one DVD feature.
The first story is called: The Asparagus of La Mancha which is a spin-off of the literary classic Don Quixote De La Mancha, (literary classic worth checking out by the way) in that it involves Don a dreaming Asparagus and Mr. Lunt who plays his sidekick Pancho, a spin-off of Sancho Panza. Don and Pancho together own a restaurant called “La Mancha”, which was popular until a competitor called “The Food Factory” moves in next door and starts stealing their business. When business is waning Don gets desperate due to the influence of his strange dreams, while Pancho is being tempted to leave his friend and work for the Food Factory. The second story, which is Sheerluck Holmes, concerns Sheerluck Holmes and Dr. Watson; played by Larry and Bob. They are assigned a huge case involving the theft of a treasure contained within the Palace. But there is more to the story than the mere mystery of who and how, this also is a commentary on how to not be a good friend. What lesson does Sheerluck Holmes need to learn in order to not only find the Golden Ruler, but also keep his friendship with Dr. Watson?
In all honesty, though Sheerluck Holmes was a decent story, I actually liked The Asparagus of La Mancha better between the two tales. For some reason there just seemed to be more detail to The Asparagus of La Mancha plotwise, and it provided a deeper message to me. Both stories are good about talking about how to be a good friend, both at times were funny, the silly song: The Gated Community was a goofy barbershop quartet, and I like their overall theological message. Yes I do give this movie a strong recommendation, it’s worth checking out if you haven’t heard about it yet.

As always, Veggie Tales did a great job of telling the story in a way the kids could understand.

My grandchildren and I love the Veggietales and enjoyed these videos. One of the cases was broken when it arrived but other than that, everything was great.

I didn't like this DVD as much as other Veggie Tales DVDs. The Asparagus of La Mancha had a good lesson about friendship, but it wasn't very funny. When I first saw it, I thought it was boring. The Silly Song was very disappointing. The song was somewhat catchy, but I didn't really like it. The Sheerluck Holmes story was the best part of the whole DVD. It was funnier and had an even better lesson about friendship. I liked the song in that story better than the Silly Song. The other big disappointment was that they did not sing the "What We Have Learned" song at the end of the movie. Overall, it was an okay movie.

Every other "famous" title is close to the original (For the Jokes) like "Lord of the Beans" ... this one I am unsure if they ever read a Sherlock Holmes mystery. It would have been better if it had a Mystery in it.

When I first saw this movie, I liked it, it was funny, and we should learn to treat others the way we want to be treated.
