VeggieTales Creator Phil Vischer to Release New DVD Series for Kids with Tyndale

Tyndale House Publishers is delighted to announce that VeggieTales® creator Phil Vischer has signed with Tyndale to produce an entertaining and educational new DVD series for kids and families. From the man who made vegetables talk, sing, dance, and tell Bible stories comes “What’s in the Bible ?”—an ambitious new series that walks kids through the entire Bible. Tyndale will introduce the new 13 DVD series with the March 2010 release of the first two DVDs, tentatively titled In the Beginning (Volume 1) and Let My People Go! (Volume 2).

“We are excited to team up with Phil Vischer and his team at Jellyfish Labs on ‘What’s in the Bible?’” said Katara Patton, Acquisitions Director, Children and Youth. “Tyndale’s foundation is built on making the Word of God applicable and understandable to children. This new DVD series is a wonderful way to bring the Bible to life and to help kids know God and his Word.”

Phil Vischer and his Jellyfish Labs team have created a groundbreaking new series that could change the way kids and families learn about the Bible. Each DVD in the “What’s in the Bible?” series is filled with original music, animation, memorable puppet characters, and hilarious writing that will take kids on a wild and witty journey through the Bible.

“After ten years of teaching kindness, gentleness, and forgiveness through talking vegetables, it occurred to me that what families really need today isn’t just another way to teach Christian values, but rather a way to teach the Bible and Christianity itself with the same sense of whimsy and fun as VeggieTales,” observed Vischer. “I can’t imagine a more important effort to be engaged in right now—bringing the Bible to life for the kids of this generation. We believe ‘What’s in the Bible?’ can help families raise kids who know God’s Word and know how to live it in front of a watching world.”

“Looking back, it almost feels like the simple lessons of VeggieTales were the appetizer, and we’re ready now for the main course!” declared Vischer.

Content in the “What’s in the Bible?” series will be exclusive to the DVDs, but the characters will also appear on www.JellyTelly.com, Vischer’s faith-based daily Internet program in partnership with Focus on the Family.
