 FRANKLIN, TN (September 19, 2006) – Strike up the band! Sound the horns! Count your peas and carrots? Big Idea, Inc. presents the all-new VeggieTales adventure, Gideon: Tuba Warrior, an extraordinary story based on a legendary biblical hero. The episode stars Larry the Cucumber as Gideon, a loyal leader with heart whose faith is tested when he’s asked to do the impossible.  Featuring a lesson in trusting God, a “Silly Song” with hula-dancing turtles, a surprise visit from the Pirates Who Don’t Do Anything and loads of family-friendly bonus features, the $14.99 DVD marches into stores November 4 and 7, 2006 in Christian and general market stores respectively.  

"Gideon is an incredible story about one of the greatest biblical heroes of all time, and Big Idea is thrilled to present this legendary tale in a fun and entertaining format that kids will connect with,” said Greg Fritz, Marketing VP at Big Idea, Inc. "When the cast includes a cucumber, six peas, six carrots and 30,000 excessively hairy pickles, you know it’s a story the whole family will enjoy!”  


VeggieTales Gideon: Tuba Warrior is the incredible story of one of the greatest biblical heroes of all time – the unassuming Gideon, played by the esteemed Larry the Cucumber, is chosen by God to defend his people against an army of 30,000 excessively hairy pickles!  However, the reluctant, tuba-playing Gideon is better trained at marching in formation than he is at marching into battle.  Will he be able to trust the message delivered to him by the angel (Pa Grape) and protect his people?  Accompanied by a mere six carrots and six peas, will Gideon be able to stand against an army of thousands?  Discover a tale of courage and trusting God based on Proverbs 3: 5-6 in the all-new VeggieTales adventure…Gideon: Tuba Warrior!  

As a special bonus, Gideon: Tuba Warrior also features the heart-warming story of George Mueller, a man who trusted God for everything, starring Archibald Asparagus in the lead role.  See how George's unshakable trust in God fed his entire house time and again, even when circumstances appeared to be hopeless.
