“We are excited to bring these additional VeggieTales® episodes to our Minno Members and help families discover new VeggieTales®,” says Erick Goss, CEO and co-founder of Minno. “Christian families are challenged when looking for media options that reflect their faith and values. They have unlimited options but very few good choices. We created Minno to change that. We love featuring shows like VeggieTales® that reflect storytelling that is fun, faithful, and can be shared with the whole family.”
The additional episodes will be supported by companion activity guides developed in collaboration with the VeggieTales® and Minno teams. These off-screen companion resources will begin rolling out throughout the Spring to support the Fruit of the Spirit episodes, helping parents engage kids in conversations that matter and fun that engages their imagination.
“The additional episodes feature stories of the Veggies helping to revive Mr. Nezzer’s dilapidated theater,” says Leslie Ferrell, SVP Big Idea, Content Group Universal Pictures Content Group. “Each show focuses on one of the Fruit of the Spirit – like love, joy, or peace – and is filled with hilarious on-stage performances and backstage antics.”
“VeggieTales® is such a special show for most families,” adds Goss. “It’s a privilege to provide our Members the opportunity to experience VeggieTales® and see new and cherished memories being made. We love providing content across our platforms that helps families experience Jesus every day.”
