  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:05:31.220 --> 00:05:33.170
  • - BECAUSE IT'S WHAT WE DO FOR A LIVING.
  • 00:05:33.190 --> 00:05:36.240
  • I MET MIKE IN BIBLE COLLEGE DOING PUPPETS.
  • 00:05:36.260 --> 00:05:39.040
  • WE BOTH DOING PUPPETS, AND WHEN YOU DO PUPPETS
  • 00:05:39.060 --> 00:05:41.070
  • YOU LEARN TO DO FUNNY VOICES SO, I STARTED
  • 00:05:41.090 --> 00:05:43.030
  • DOING FUNNY VOICES WHEN I WAS WATCHING SESAME
  • 00:05:43.050 --> 00:05:45.270
  • STREET WHEN I WAS LIKE FIVE YEARS OLD TRYING TO
  • 00:05:45.290 --> 00:05:48.250
  • IMITATE THE PUPPETS.
  • 00:05:48.270 --> 00:05:50.260
  • BUT I GREW UP IN A FAMILY THAT WAS VERY MISSION
  • 00:05:50.280 --> 00:05:54.160
  • FOCUSED, VERY STRONG CHRISTIAN FAMILY GOING
  • 00:05:54.180 --> 00:05:57.100
  • BACK ABOUT 4 GENERATIONS ON EITHER SIDE, SO I
  • 00:05:57.120 --> 00:05:59.210
  • HEARD STORIES ABOUT PEOPLE THAT DID AMAZING
  • 00:05:59.230 --> 00:06:02.000
  • THINGS FOR GOD.
  • 00:06:02.020 --> 00:06:04.010
  • BUT I WAS A REALLY SHY KID, AND I COULD NEVER
  • 00:06:04.030 --> 00:06:06.160
  • QUITE FIGURE OUT WHAT'S THE AMAZING THING THAT I
  • 00:06:06.180 --> 00:06:09.010
  • COULD DO FOR GOD BECAUSE I LIKE PUPPETS, I LIFE
  • 00:06:09.030 --> 00:06:12.090
  • SATURDAY MORNING CARTOONS, I LIKE
  • 00:06:12.110 --> 00:06:14.070
  • TECHNOLOGY, AND I DIDN'T REALLY LIKE TALKING
  • 00:06:14.090 --> 00:06:16.100
  • TO PEOPLE.
  • 00:06:16.120 --> 00:06:17.270
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:06:17.290 --> 00:06:20.170
  • SO IT WASN'T UNTIL HIGH SCHOOL THAT I STARTED
  • 00:06:20.190 --> 00:06:24.030
  • PLAYING WITH COMPUTERS IN HIGH SCHOOL, MORE
  • 00:06:24.050 --> 00:06:26.230
  • PUPPETS, MORE ANIMATION, AND THEN MTV TURNED ON
  • 00:06:26.250 --> 00:06:29.180
  • WHEN I WAS A SOPHOMORE IN HIGH SCHOOL.
  • 00:06:29.200 --> 00:06:32.130
  • AND I'M WATCHING MTV AND THERE'S ALL THESE MUSIC
  • 00:06:32.150 --> 00:06:34.090
  • VIDEOS WITH THESE CRAZY ANIMATION TECHNIQUES AND
  • 00:06:34.110 --> 00:06:36.110
  • IT WAS REALLY CREATOR STUFF AND I WAS REALLY
  • 00:06:36.130 --> 00:06:38.230
  • EXCITED BY IT FIRST OF ALL, BUT I ALSO THOUGHT
  • 00:06:38.250 --> 00:06:41.090
  • WAIT A MINUTE, THE VALUES THAT ARE COMING THROUGH
  • 00:06:41.110 --> 00:06:43.120
  • IN THESE MUSIC VIDEOS ARE NOT THE VALUES I LEARNED
  • 00:06:43.140 --> 00:06:45.290
  • IN SUNDAY SCHOOL WHEN I WAS GROWING UP AND WERE
  • 00:06:46.010 --> 00:06:48.120
  • LIKE THE EXACT OPPOSITE IN SOME CASES, AND IT WAS
  • 00:06:48.140 --> 00:06:52.010
  • LIKE IN THAT MOMENT THAT I FELT THE SENSE OF CALL
  • 00:06:52.030 --> 00:06:54.010
  • THAT GOD HAS MADE ME CREATIVE, HE'S MADE ME A
  • 00:06:54.030 --> 00:06:56.140
  • STORY TELLER, I'M GOOD WITH TECHNOLOGY, AND I
  • 00:06:56.160 --> 00:06:58.130
  • LIKE TO BRING THINGS TO LIFE, MAYBE I'M NOT
  • 00:06:58.150 --> 00:07:01.080
  • SUPPOSED TO BE A MISSIONARY IN A JUNGLE.
  • 00:07:01.100 --> 00:07:03.210
  • MAYBE I'M SUPPOSED TO BE A FILM MAKER, AND THAT
  • 00:07:03.230 --> 00:07:06.110
  • LED TO THE PURSUIT OF BIBLE COLLEGE,
  • 00:07:06.130 --> 00:07:08.110
  • FILM SCHOOL.
  • 00:07:08.130 --> 00:07:09.280
  • BIBLE COLLEGE IS WHERE I MET MIKE.
  • 00:07:10.000 --> 00:07:11.280
  • WE WERE BOTH INVITED NOT TO COME BACK AFTER THREE
  • 00:07:12.000 --> 00:07:13.250
  • SEMESTERS BECAUSE WE FAILED CHAPEL.
  • 00:07:13.270 --> 00:07:15.180
  • - FAILED CHAPEL.
  • 00:07:15.200 --> 00:07:17.060
  • - YEAH, WE FAILED CHAPEL.
  • 00:07:17.080 --> 00:07:19.130
  • WE WERE WRITING PUPPET SCRIPTS SO WE'D
  • 00:07:19.150 --> 00:07:21.220
  • STAY UP LATE.
  • 00:07:21.240 --> 00:07:23.160
  • - INTO THE NIGHT, YEAH.
  • 00:07:23.180 --> 00:07:24.250
  • - AND WE WERE JUST HAVING FUN.
  • 00:07:24.270 --> 00:07:26.270
  • SOME PEOPLE DO TERRIBLE THINGS IN COLLEGE, LIKE
  • 00:07:26.290 --> 00:07:28.080
  • THE WORST BEHAVIOR OF MY LIFE.
  • 00:07:28.100 --> 00:07:30.030
  • WE WERE TEASING THE NIGHT WATCHMAN BY HIDING BEHIND
  • 00:07:30.050 --> 00:07:32.150
  • WALLS WITH OUR PUPPETS, AND THEN THEY'D COME
  • 00:07:32.170 --> 00:07:35.100
  • AROUND THE CORNER IN THE DARK WE'D STAND AND LIKE
  • 00:07:35.120 --> 00:07:36.250
  • SCARE THEM.
  • 00:07:36.270 --> 00:07:39.190
  • - YOU WERE AWFUL THEN.
  • 00:07:39.210 --> 00:07:41.210
  • - OH, YEAH.
  • 00:07:41.230 --> 00:07:42.280
  • WE WERE A MENACE TO SOCIETY IN BIBLE COLLEGE.
  • 00:07:43.000 --> 00:07:44.110
  • SO AFTER THREE SEMESTERS WE WERE BOTH INVITED NOT
  • 00:07:44.130 --> 00:07:45.190
  • TO COME BACK.
  • 00:07:45.210 --> 00:07:47.140
  • AND I STARTED WORKING IN VIDEO PRODUCTION IN
  • 00:07:47.160 --> 00:07:49.130
  • CHICAGO AND TRIED TO FIND A WAY -- I WANTED TO
  • 00:07:49.150 --> 00:07:52.020
  • INTEGRATE MY FAITH WITH MY FILM MAKING.
  • 00:07:52.040 --> 00:07:55.050
  • THERE NEEDS TO BE SOME CONNECTION HERE.
  • 00:07:55.070 --> 00:07:57.000
  • SO THAT'S HOW I HEADED IN THIS DIRECTION.
  • 00:07:57.020 --> 00:07:59.130
  • MIKE WAS COMING FROM COLORADO, AND HIS JOURNEY
  • 00:07:59.150 --> 00:08:03.120
  • HAD PUPPETS IN IT ALSO.
  • 00:08:03.140 --> 00:08:05.150
  • BUT YOU CAN TALK A LITTLE ABOUT YOUR JOURNEY.
  • 00:08:05.170 --> 00:08:07.190
  • - YEAH, SO I CAME TO THE LORD WHEN I WAS IN MIDDLE
  • 00:08:07.210 --> 00:08:10.000
  • SCHOOL DURING A BILLY GRAHAM CRUSADE ON
  • 00:08:10.020 --> 00:08:13.140
  • TELEVISION, AND QUICKLY FOUND A HOME IN OUR YOUTH
  • 00:08:13.160 --> 00:08:18.270
  • GROUP AT OUR LOCAL CHURCH THAT WE STARTED ATTENDING
  • 00:08:18.290 --> 00:08:20.230
  • AND JUST REALLY LOVED IT.
  • 00:08:20.250 --> 00:08:23.290
  • THEY'D DO A LOT OF PLAYS AND A LOT OF CHOIRS, THAT
  • 00:08:24.010 --> 00:08:27.200
  • SORT OF THING.
  • 00:08:27.220 --> 00:08:29.190
  • AND I JUST LOVED GETTING PLUGGED INTO THAT, SO I
  • 00:08:29.210 --> 00:08:33.100
  • FOUND A REAL DESIRE TO PERFORM AND TO SING AND
  • 00:08:33.120 --> 00:08:35.000
  • TO WRITE MUSIC, AND I LOVED THAT.
  • 00:08:35.020 --> 00:08:36.200
  • IT WAS A PASSION OF MINE.
  • 00:08:36.220 --> 00:08:38.080
  • I WENT FORWARD AT A YOUTH CONVENTION WHEN I WAS A
  • 00:08:38.100 --> 00:08:40.010
  • JUNIOR IN HIGH SCHOOL AND DEDICATED MY LIFE TO
  • 00:08:40.030 --> 00:08:42.260
  • MINISTRY, BUT I DIDN'T REALLY KNOW WHAT THAT
  • 00:08:42.280 --> 00:08:45.080
  • LOOKED LIKE.
  • 00:08:45.100 --> 00:08:47.010
  • I DIDN'T FEEL LIKE I WAS BEING CALLED TO BECOME A
  • 00:08:47.030 --> 00:08:48.260
  • PASTOR, BUT I LOOKED AROUND AT THE INFLUENCES
  • 00:08:48.280 --> 00:08:50.260
  • IN MY LIFE, MY DAD WAS AN ENGINEER, MY MOM WAS A
  • 00:08:50.280 --> 00:08:53.140
  • NURSE, MY OLDER BROTHER WAS A CHEMISTRY MAJOR, SO
  • 00:08:53.160 --> 00:08:55.120
  • FOR ME I PUT THOSE THINGS TOGETHER IN MY 17 YEAR
  • 00:08:55.140 --> 00:08:58.130
  • OLD BRAIN AND DECIDED THAT I WAS SUPPOSED TO BE
  • 00:08:58.150 --> 00:09:01.070
  • A MISSIONARY DOCTOR.
  • 00:09:01.090 --> 00:09:02.270
  • SO I HAD A PASSION FOR STORY TELLING AND
  • 00:09:02.290 --> 00:09:05.020
  • PERFORMING AND ALL THAT, BUT I JUST DIDN'T IMAGINE
  • 00:09:05.040 --> 00:09:07.060
  • MYSELF DOING THAT, SO I WENT TO BIBLE COLLEGE AS
  • 00:09:07.080 --> 00:09:09.090
  • A WAY TO SAY OKAY, I WANT TO GO AND GET SOME BIBLE
  • 00:09:09.110 --> 00:09:11.290
  • CLASSES OUT OF THE WAY AND THEN I'LL GO ONTO
  • 00:09:12.010 --> 00:09:13.290
  • PREMED AND MED SCHOOL AFTER THAT.
  • 00:09:14.010 --> 00:09:15.250
  • - SO I HADN'T MET ANYONE WHO HAD AS WEIRD A SENSE
  • 00:09:15.270 --> 00:09:18.060
  • OF HUMOR AS I DID.
  • 00:09:18.080 --> 00:09:21.200
  • [LAUGHTER] I GREW UP IN CHURCH AND THEN AT BIBLE
  • 00:09:21.220 --> 00:09:24.010
  • CONFERENCES AND THEN AT BIBLE COLLEGE AND YOU
  • 00:09:24.030 --> 00:09:25.140
  • WERE SUPPOSED TO BE KIND OF NORMAL.
  • 00:09:25.160 --> 00:09:28.260
  • YOU WEREN'T SUPPOSE THE TO BE REALLY WEIRD IN
  • 00:09:28.280 --> 00:09:31.010
  • CHURCH, SO I GOT IN TROUBLE IN SUNDAY SCHOOL
  • 00:09:31.030 --> 00:09:33.090
  • BECAUSE I WAS MAKING JOKES ABOUT THE BIBLE
  • 00:09:33.110 --> 00:09:35.050
  • STORIES BECAUSE THEY WOULD STRIKE ME AS
  • 00:09:35.070 --> 00:09:36.260
  • FUNNY SOMETIMES.
  • 00:09:36.280 --> 00:09:38.150
  • AND I NEVER THOUGHT ABOUT THAT BIBLE STORY
  • 00:09:38.170 --> 00:09:40.040
  • THIS WAY.
  • 00:09:40.060 --> 00:09:41.190
  • THAT'S KIND OF FUNNY, AND THEN I LEARNED OH, PEOPLE
  • 00:09:41.210 --> 00:09:43.130
  • DON'T LIKE WHEN YOU DO THAT IN THE MIDDLE OF
  • 00:09:43.150 --> 00:09:45.180
  • SUNDAY SCHOOL, SO I KIND OF JUST TURNED THAT OFF.
  • 00:09:45.200 --> 00:09:48.100
  • IT'S LIKE NO, WHEN YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT THE BIBLE
  • 00:09:48.120 --> 00:09:50.140
  • YOU DON'T MAKE JOKES BECAUSE PEOPLE GET MAD
  • 00:09:50.160 --> 00:09:52.210
  • AT YOU.
  • 00:09:52.230 --> 00:09:54.140
  • AND THEN WHEN WE MET IN BIBLE COLLEGE AND WE
  • 00:09:54.160 --> 00:09:56.090
  • STARTED DOING PUPPET SHOWS AND WE COULD TELL A
  • 00:09:56.110 --> 00:09:58.200
  • BIBLE STORY WITH PUPPETS, AND THEN WHATEVER THOSE
  • 00:09:58.220 --> 00:10:01.100
  • WEIRD THOUGHTS THAT I HAD OR THAT MIKE HAD YOU
  • 00:10:01.120 --> 00:10:03.170
  • COULD LET THEM OUT, LET THEM OUT INTO THE WILD,
  • 00:10:03.190 --> 00:10:06.010
  • AND IT WAS FUNNY BECAUSE WE'D DO THESE PUPPET
  • 00:10:06.030 --> 00:10:08.260
  • SHOWS IN CHURCHES IN NORTHERN MINNESOTA, AND
  • 00:10:08.280 --> 00:10:10.180
  • ALL THE KIDS ARE SUPPOSEDLY OUT THERE BUT
  • 00:10:10.200 --> 00:10:13.260
  • THEY'RE NOT LAUGHING.
  • 00:10:13.280 --> 00:10:15.130
  • INSTEAD I HEAR GROWN UPS LAUGHING.
  • 00:10:15.150 --> 00:10:17.040
  • - IN THE BACK ROW.
  • 00:10:17.060 --> 00:10:19.010
  • - AND A LOT OF OUR JOKES WERE GOING RIGHT OVER THE
  • 00:10:19.030 --> 00:10:20.240
  • HEADS OF THE KIDS AND MAKING THEIR PARENTS
  • 00:10:20.260 --> 00:10:22.250
  • LAUGH IN THE BACK OF THE ROOM.
  • 00:10:22.270 --> 00:10:24.160
  • I REMEMBER THINKING THERE ARE KIDS IN THIS
  • 00:10:24.180 --> 00:10:26.130
  • ROOM, RIGHT?
  • 00:10:26.150 --> 00:10:27.270
  • BUT IT WAS THAT ABILITY TO PULL THE PARENTS IN,
  • 00:10:27.290 --> 00:10:30.210
  • TO ENGAGE THEM.
  • 00:10:30.230 --> 00:10:32.230
  • WITH VEGGIE TALES BECAUSE PEOPLE SAY, ARE YOU
  • 00:10:32.250 --> 00:10:34.190
  • TRYING TO MAKE KIDS LAUGH?
  • 00:10:34.210 --> 00:10:36.060
  • IT'S REALLY HARD TO KNOW HOW TO MAKE KIDS LAUGH.
  • 00:10:36.080 --> 00:10:38.110
  • YOU JUST TRY TO MAKE YOURSELF LAUGH AND YOU
  • 00:10:38.130 --> 00:10:40.190
  • HOPE EVERYONE ELSE COMES ALONG.
  • 00:10:40.210 --> 00:10:42.120
  • BUT IF YOU MAKE PARENTS LAUGH THEY'LL ACTUALLY
  • 00:10:42.140 --> 00:10:44.160
  • WATCH ALONG WITH THEIR KIDS, AND THAT WAS ONE OF
  • 00:10:44.180 --> 00:10:46.180
  • THE SECRETS OF VEGGIE TALES WHEN IT LAUNCHED
  • 00:10:46.200 --> 00:10:48.150
  • WAS THAT PARENTS ENJOYED WATCHING IT WITH THEIR
  • 00:10:48.170 --> 00:10:50.140
  • KIDS AND THEN THE WHOLE FAMILY COULD
  • 00:10:50.160 --> 00:10:52.020

  • - ACTUALLY 26.
  • 00:15:07.270 --> 00:15:09.100
  • - YEAH, YEAH.
  • 00:15:09.120 --> 00:15:10.150
  • - BUT WHO IS COUNTING?
  • 00:15:10.170 --> 00:15:11.250
  • - WHO IS COUNTING?
  • 00:15:11.270 --> 00:15:12.220
  • - 18 FIRST.
  • 00:15:12.240 --> 00:15:13.190
  • - 18 FIRST, YEAH.
  • 00:15:13.210 --> 00:15:15.010
  • - I WILL SAY IT'S JUST ONE OF THE FUNNEST
  • 00:15:15.030 --> 00:15:16.150
  • ANNOUNCEMENTS TO TELL FRIENDS, TBN IS DOING
  • 00:15:16.170 --> 00:15:18.230
  • MORE VEGGIE TALES NOW, AND THE REACTION OF

  • THAT JUST BREAK OUT IN SONG WITH JUST -- LIKE
  • 00:15:27.000 --> 00:15:30.230
  • IT'S HILARIOUS.
  • 00:15:30.250 --> 00:15:32.010
  • - I KIND OF THOUGHT BECAUSE VEGGIE TALES HAS
  • 00:15:32.030 --> 00:15:33.100
  • BEEN OWNED BY 4 DIFFERENT COMPANIES OVER THE YEARS,
  • 00:15:33.120 --> 00:15:36.170
  • AND IT ENDED UP WITH UNIVERSAL, AND UNIVERSAL
  • 00:15:36.190 --> 00:15:39.100
  • IS A HUGE COMPANY.
  • 00:15:39.120 --> 00:15:40.180
  • IT'S OWNED BY COMCAST.
  • 00:15:40.200 --> 00:15:41.260
  • THAT'S THE CABLE COMPANY, SO THE CABLE COMPANY OWNS
  • 00:15:41.280 --> 00:15:44.070
  • BOB AND LARRY, SO IN MY MIND IT WAS LIKE THE END
  • 00:15:44.090 --> 00:15:48.080
  • OF RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK WHEN THEY TAKE THE
  • 00:15:48.100 --> 00:15:50.060
  • ARK OF THE COVENANT AND THEY PUT IT IN A BOX AND
  • 00:15:50.080 --> 00:15:52.110
  • PUSH IT INTO A GIANT WAREHOUSE HOUSE AND BYE,
  • 00:15:52.130 --> 00:15:54.210
  • ARK OF THE COVENANT!
  • 00:15:54.230 --> 00:15:56.240
  • - UNIVERSAL DID THAT MOVIE BY THE WAY.
  • 00:15:56.260 --> 00:15:58.100
  • - THEY DID THAT MOVIE.
  • 00:15:58.120 --> 00:15:59.180
  • SO IT ALL FITS.
  • 00:15:59.200 --> 00:16:00.220
  • - IT'S AT THE WAREHOUSE.
  • 00:16:00.240 --> 00:16:02.050
  • - I THOUGHT OKAY, WELL, BOB AND LARRY ARE GONE.
  • 00:16:02.070 --> 00:16:03.230
  • THEY'RE IN THE WAREHOUSE AT COMCAST SOMEWHERE ON
  • 00:16:03.250 --> 00:16:06.110
  • MY CABLE BILL, AND THEN YOU GUYS REACHED OUT TO
  • 00:16:06.130 --> 00:16:09.250
  • THEM AND SAID HEY, CAN WE DO SOMETHING.
  • 00:16:09.270 --> 00:16:12.060
  • WE LOVE THESE CHARACTERS, AND THEN YOU BOTH REACHED
  • 00:16:12.080 --> 00:16:14.260
  • OUT TO ME AND SAID HEY, CAN YOU HELP.
  • 00:16:14.280 --> 00:16:16.200
  • LIKE, YEAH!
  • 00:16:16.220 --> 00:16:18.070
  • I WOULD LOVE TO HELP.
  • 00:16:18.090 --> 00:16:19.130
  • SO IT'S BECAUSE OF YOU!
  • 00:16:19.150 --> 00:16:20.220
  • - I REMEMBER THE STORY A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT.
  • 00:16:20.240 --> 00:16:22.040
  • - THAT'S EXACTLY HOW IT HAPPENED.
  • 00:16:22.060 --> 00:16:24.200
  • - LET ME TELL YOU HOW I REMEMBER THIS STORY.
  • 00:16:24.220 --> 00:16:25.240
  • - UH-OH.
  • 00:16:25.260 --> 00:16:27.010
  • - I REMEMBER THE STORY THAT BASICALLY UNIVERSAL
  • 00:16:27.030 --> 00:16:29.160
  • SAID WE'RE DOING MORE VEGGIE TALES, AND I SAID
  • 00:16:29.180 --> 00:16:32.150
  • NOT A CHANCE UNLESS PHIL AND MIKE ARE INVOLVED.
  • 00:16:32.170 --> 00:16:36.200
  • - OKAY.
  • 00:16:36.220 --> 00:16:38.110
  • - SO THAT'S HOW I REMEMBER IT.
  • 00:16:38.130 --> 00:16:39.190
  • - I WAS GIVING YOU CREDIT ANYWAY.
  • 00:16:39.210 --> 00:16:40.170
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:16:40.190 --> 00:16:43.180
  • - THAT'S A LITTLE MORE CREDIT.
  • 00:16:43.200 --> 00:16:44.270
  • I LIKE THAT CREDIT.
  • 00:16:44.290 --> 00:16:46.040
  • - THAT'S GOOD, TOO.
  • 00:16:46.060 --> 00:16:47.120
  • - WE'RE NOT DOING A THING.
  • 00:16:47.140 --> 00:16:48.220
  • - [IMITATES JIMMY CAGNEY] UNLESS MY BOYS
  • 00:16:48.240 --> 00:16:49.190
  • ARE INVOLVED, SEE.
  • 00:16:49.210 --> 00:16:52.250
  • - SO BASICALLY I JEST BUT I'M NOT JESTING.
  • 00:16:52.270 --> 00:16:57.100
  • VEGGIE TALES WOULDN'T BE WHAT IT IS UNLESS YOU
  • 00:16:57.120 --> 00:17:01.100
  • GUYS WERE WRITING AND BEING THE VOICES AND
  • 00:17:01.120 --> 00:17:05.080
  • DOING YOUR CREATIVE TOUCH ON IT BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT
  • 00:17:05.100 --> 00:17:08.170
  • WE FELL IN LOVE WITH, OKAY.
  • 00:17:08.190 --> 00:17:11.110
  • WE FELL IN LOVE WITH VEGGIE TALES, AND EVERY
  • 00:17:11.130 --> 00:17:14.140
  • PERSON YOU EVER TALK TO, WHEN WE TALK TO OUR
  • 00:17:14.160 --> 00:17:18.010
  • FRIENDS, WE'LL SAY VEGGIE TALES IS COMING BACK.
  • 00:17:18.030 --> 00:17:21.090
  • WE OWNED EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM.
  • 00:17:21.110 --> 00:17:23.170
  • AND SEE, HERE'S THE PROBLEM.
  • 00:17:23.190 --> 00:17:25.100
  • IT WAS SO LONG AGO NOW WE DON'T KNOW WHERE
  • 00:17:25.120 --> 00:17:27.110
  • THE VHS'S ARE.
  • 00:17:27.130 --> 00:17:28.280
  • WOULDN'T MATTER ANYWAY.
  • 00:17:29.000 --> 00:17:30.280
  • - WHERE THE PLAYER IS.
  • 00:17:31.000 --> 00:17:33.110
  • - I DON'T HAVE A PLAYER NOW FOR A DVD PLAYER,
  • 00:17:33.130 --> 00:17:35.190
  • YOU KNOW.
  • 00:17:35.210 --> 00:17:37.010
  • HER COMPUTER WHEN WE BOUGHT A NEW COMPUTER
  • 00:17:37.030 --> 00:17:38.170
  • DIDN'T EVEN HAVE A SLOT FOR IT ANYMORE.
  • 00:17:38.190 --> 00:17:40.160
  • - WHAT'S UP WITH THAT?
  • 00:17:40.180 --> 00:17:43.200
  • - SO BASICALLY WHERE ARE WE GOING TO PUT THESE
  • 00:17:43.220 --> 00:17:46.020
  • VEGGIE TALES EPISODES AND HOW ARE WE GOING TO SHOW
  • 00:17:46.040 --> 00:17:47.270
  • THEM TO ANYBODY, SO ONE OF THE FIXES FOR THAT IS
  • 00:17:47.290 --> 00:17:52.040
  • IN ADDITION TO VEGGIE TALES, BASICALLY THE
  • 00:17:52.060 --> 00:17:56.030
  • EPISODES WHICH IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING, ONE
  • 00:17:56.050 --> 00:17:59.010
  • OF THE OTHER THINGS IS HOW DO WE GET THEM TO YOU.
  • 00:17:59.030 --> 00:18:02.230
  • NOW, UNIVERSAL IS A BIG COMPANY AND THEY KNOW
  • 00:18:02.250 --> 00:18:05.240
  • THIS OTHER SHOW CALLED WAL-MART AND TARGET AND
  • 00:18:05.260 --> 00:18:08.290
  • K MART, SO THERE ARE GOING TO BE DVDS RELEASED.
  • 00:18:09.010 --> 00:18:12.200
  • THAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN, BUT WE THOUGHT IT MORE
  • 00:18:12.220 --> 00:18:15.170
  • IMPORTANT TO DO A SVOD, SUBSCRIPTION VIDEO ON
  • 00:18:15.190 --> 00:18:17.270
  • DEMAND SO YOU CAN OWN ALL THE CONTENT DIGITALLY,
  • 00:18:17.290 --> 00:18:26.000
  • AND WHATEVER DEVICE YOU WANT TO PLAY THEM ONTO
  • 00:18:26.020 --> 00:18:29.050
  • FROM YOUR TV TO YOUR LAPTOP TO YOUR I PAD TO
  • 00:18:29.070 --> 00:18:32.290
  • YOUR CELL PHONE FOR PROBABLY LESS THAN IT
  • 00:18:33.010 --> 00:18:35.270
  • WOULD COST TO BUY THE EPISODES BACK
  • 00:18:35.290 --> 00:18:37.080
  • IN THE OLD DAYS.
  • 00:18:37.100 --> 00:18:38.150
  • I MEAN, WAL-MART, HOW MUCH WERE THEY WHEN THEY
  • 00:18:38.170 --> 00:18:40.170
  • FIRST CAME OUT?
  • 00:18:40.190 --> 00:18:41.160
  • - 14.
  • 00:18:41.180 --> 00:18:42.080
  • - $15.
  • 00:18:42.100 --> 00:18:44.120
  • - SO WE'RE BASICALLY PUTTING TOGETHER SVOD.
  • 00:18:44.140 --> 00:18:47.090

  • A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT.
  • 00:19:03.200 --> 00:19:04.210
  • - YEAH, SO, YIPPEE?
  • 00:19:04.230 --> 00:19:06.150
  • - EUROPEAN YIPPEE.
  • 00:19:06.170 --> 00:19:09.030

  • - YIPPEE. YEAH, THEY BOTH SOUND VERY SIMILAR.
  • 00:19:21.290 --> 00:19:25.100
  • - BECAUSE THEY'RE US DOING AN IMPRESSION OF
  • 00:19:25.120 --> 00:19:27.040
  • A BOSS THAT WE HAD. WE BOTH WORKED AT ONE--
  • 00:19:27.060 --> 00:19:31.020

  • SOMETHING ELSE I'VE GOT TO SUBSCRIBE TO
  • 00:20:45.070 --> 00:20:47.080
  • BESIDES AARP MAGAZINE.
  • 00:20:47.100 --> 00:20:50.210
  • - MATT: PERFECT. OKAY. SO--
  • 00:20:50.230 --> 00:20:55.050
  • - AND THAT'S-- LET ME JUST SAY I HAVE A
  • 00:20:55.070 --> 00:20:56.280
  • TWO AND A HALF YEAR OLD GRANDDAUGHTER NOW,
  • 00:20:57.000 --> 00:20:58.250
  • 'CAUSE I'M OLD, THAT'S HOW THAT HAPPENS.
  • 00:20:58.270 --> 00:21:01.000
  • I HAVE A TWO AND A HALF YEAR OLD GRANDDAUGHTER.
  • 00:21:01.020 --> 00:21:02.070
  • IF I HAND HER A DVD, SHE DOESN'T KNOW WHAT IT IS.
  • 00:21:02.090 --> 00:21:06.090
  • IF YOU HAND HER A PHONE, SHE'LL, YEAH SHE'S THERE
  • 00:21:06.110 --> 00:21:09.220
  • AND SHE'S FOUND HER VIDEO.
  • 00:21:09.240 --> 00:21:12.010
  • SO IT'S REALLY HARD FOR THE NEWEST GENERATION OF

  • KIDS OR GRANDKIDS TO DEAL WITH 20 YEAR OLD MEDIA,
  • 00:21:15.110 --> 00:21:19.260
  • SO I THINK IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT TO HAVE ALL
  • 00:21:19.280 --> 00:21:21.230
  • THIS STUFF DIGITALLY IN A WAY WHERE
  • 00:21:21.250 --> 00:21:23.060
  • THEY CAN JUST FIND IT.
  • 00:21:23.080 --> 00:21:24.190
  • YOU HAND YOUR PHONE TO YOUR KIDS AND THEY CAN
  • 00:21:24.210 --> 00:21:26.050
  • FIND THE VIDEO THAT YOU WANT THEM TO WATCH.
  • 00:21:26.070 --> 00:21:28.170

  • - I'LL BE RIGHT BACK.
  • 00:22:49.190 --> 00:22:51.050
  • - CLIPS FROM THE BRAND-NEW VEGGIE TALES,
  • 00:22:52.150 --> 00:22:56.240
  • OUR OFFER THIS MONTH.
  • 00:22:56.260 --> 00:22:59.110
  • OKAY, VEGGIE TALES USED TO BE CHOCOLATE TALES
  • 00:22:59.130 --> 00:23:02.280
  • KIND OF. WHAT HAPPENED?
  • 00:23:03.000 --> 00:23:04.120
  • - ALMOST WAS.
  • 00:23:04.140 --> 00:23:05.270
  • SO I WAS A COMPUTER ANIMATOR IN CHICAGO IN
  • 00:23:05.290 --> 00:23:07.210
  • THE LATE 1980S, VERY EARLY ON IN COMPUTER
  • 00:23:07.230 --> 00:23:09.260
  • ANIMATION HISTORY, AND I WANTED TO TELL STORIES
  • 00:23:09.280 --> 00:23:12.060
  • FOR KIDS THAT WERE LONGER, BUT THE
  • 00:23:12.080 --> 00:23:14.260
  • TECHNOLOGY COULDN'T HANDLE ANYTHING WITH ARMS
  • 00:23:14.280 --> 00:23:17.120
  • OR LEGS OR HAIR OR CLOTHES, SO I REALIZED
  • 00:23:17.140 --> 00:23:21.150
  • OKAY, I NEED NAKED, BALD, LIMBLESS CHARACTERS AND
  • 00:23:21.170 --> 00:23:26.060
  • THEY'RE GONNA SELL AT CHRISTIAN BOOK STORES.
  • 00:23:26.080 --> 00:23:28.110
  • WHAT IS THAT?
  • 00:23:28.130 --> 00:23:30.180
  • AND MY FIRST IDEA WAS A CANDY BAR.
  • 00:23:30.200 --> 00:23:33.250
  • I CAN MAKE A CANDY BAR AND GIVE HIM A FACE.
  • 00:23:33.270 --> 00:23:36.010
  • SO I DID. I MADE A CANDY BAR AND GAVE HIM A FACE,
  • 00:23:36.030 --> 00:23:38.020
  • EXPERIMENTING WITH THE TECHNOLOGY WE HAD AT THE
  • 00:23:38.040 --> 00:23:40.220
  • TIME, AND THEN I THOUGHT THIS COULD WORK.
  • 00:23:40.240 --> 00:23:43.120
  • KIDS-- A WHOLE CANDY SHOWS, SURE.
  • 00:23:43.140 --> 00:23:46.240
  • MY WIFE-- I'D JUST GOTTEN MARRIED.
  • 00:23:46.260 --> 00:23:48.110
  • MY WIFE WALKED BY THE SPARE BEDROOM WHERE I WAS
  • 00:23:48.130 --> 00:23:50.090
  • WORKING, SHE SAW THE CANDY BAR ON THE MONITOR
  • 00:23:50.110 --> 00:23:53.190
  • AND SAID YOU KNOW MOMS ARE GONNA BE MAD IF YOU
  • 00:23:53.210 --> 00:23:55.100
  • MAKE THEIR KIDS FALL IN LOVE WITH CANDY BARS.
  • 00:23:55.120 --> 00:23:57.110
  • AND I THOUGHT SHE'S RIGHT!
  • 00:23:57.130 --> 00:23:59.220
  • OF COURSE THEY WON'T LIKE THAT AT ALL.
  • 00:23:59.240 --> 00:24:01.250
  • - GLAD YOU MARRIED HER.
  • 00:24:01.270 --> 00:24:03.050
  • - SHE SAVED ME. AND--
  • 00:24:03.070 --> 00:24:05.050
  • - AND SHE'S THE VOICE OF JUNIOR ASPARAGUS.
  • 00:24:05.070 --> 00:24:06.190
  • - AND SHE'S THE VOICE OF JUNIOR ASPARAGUS,
  • 00:24:06.210 --> 00:24:07.290
  • WHICH ALSO HELPS.
  • 00:24:08.010 --> 00:24:09.130
  • SO I THOUGHT WHAT IS SHAPED LIKE A CANDY BAR
  • 00:24:09.150 --> 00:24:11.180
  • THAT MOMS WOULDN'T BE MAD ABOUT THEIR KIDS FALLING
  • 00:24:11.200 --> 00:24:13.150
  • IN LOVE WITH, AND THE NEXT THING THAT POPPED
  • 00:24:13.170 --> 00:24:15.020
  • INTO MY HEAD WAS A CUCUMBER.
  • 00:24:15.040 --> 00:24:16.240
  • SO I MADE A CUCUMBER, TOOK THE FACE OFF THE
  • 00:24:16.260 --> 00:24:18.040
  • CANDY BAR, PUT IT ON THE CUCUMBER.
  • 00:24:18.060 --> 00:24:19.240
  • HE WAS CUTE, HE WAS KOOKY.
  • 00:24:19.260 --> 00:24:22.040
  • I GAVE HIM ONE TOOTH BECAUSE CUCUMBERS ARE
  • 00:24:22.060 --> 00:24:23.210
  • KOOKY, BUT HE WAS ALONE AND IT WAS NOT GOOD.
  • 00:24:23.230 --> 00:24:26.110
  • SO HE WAS TALL AND SKINNY.
  • 00:24:26.130 --> 00:24:28.000
  • I THOUGHT HE NEEDS A FRIEND WHO'S SHORT AND
  • 00:24:28.020 --> 00:24:29.190
  • ROUND SO THEY COMPLEMENT EACH OTHER,
  • 00:24:29.210 --> 00:24:31.140
  • SO THE TOMATO. A TOMATO AND A CUCUMBER.
  • 00:24:31.160 --> 00:24:33.270
  • AND I THOUGHT DOES THE TOMATO ONLY HAVE ONE TOOTH
  • 00:24:33.290 --> 00:24:35.290
  • TOO? NO, THEN I'M MAKING VEGETABLE HEE HAW.
  • 00:24:36.010 --> 00:24:38.200
  • SOMEBODY NEEDS A FULL SET OF TEETH.
  • 00:24:38.220 --> 00:24:41.020
  • SO I GAVE HIM A FULL SET OF TEETH.
  • 00:24:41.040 --> 00:24:43.060
  • ONLY WHEN HE SMILES, OTHERWISE HE HAS NO TEETH
  • 00:24:43.080 --> 00:24:45.130
  • AT ALL. IT'S MAGIC!
  • 00:24:45.150 --> 00:24:48.120
  • BUT I THOUGHT OKAY, HE HAS A FULL SET OF TEETH
  • 00:24:48.140 --> 00:24:50.000
  • SO HE'S PROBABLY THE SMART ONE BECAUSE TEETH
  • 00:24:50.020 --> 00:24:51.290
  • AND IQ ARE LINKED WE'VE DISCOVERED.
  • 00:24:52.010 --> 00:24:54.210
  • YOU DIDN'T KNOW THAT.
  • 00:24:54.230 --> 00:24:56.110
  • THERE'S RESEARCH JUST CAME IN.
  • 00:24:56.130 --> 00:24:58.130
  • - WHICH YOU HAVE BEAUTIFUL TEETH BY THE WAY.
  • 00:24:58.150 --> 00:25:00.290
  • - YOU BOTH ARE VERY INTELLIGENT, I CAN TELL.
  • 00:25:01.010 --> 00:25:04.110
  • - SO HE BECAME THE STRAIGHT GUY,
  • 00:25:04.130 --> 00:25:05.290
  • AND THE CUCUMBER WAS THE SILLY GUY.
  • 00:25:06.010 --> 00:25:07.270
  • AND I SAID MIKE, OKAY MIKE, YOU'RE SILLY,
  • 00:25:07.290 --> 00:25:09.250
  • YOU BE THE CUCUMBER, I'LL BE THE TOMATO
  • 00:25:09.270 --> 00:25:12.170
  • AND WE'LL DO A SHOW. HOW HARD CAN IT BE?
  • 00:25:12.190 --> 00:25:15.010
  • - YOU KNOW WHAT I'VE NOTICED AFTER GETTING TO
  • 00:25:15.030 --> 00:25:16.260
  • KNOW YOU GUYS, AND WE'RE WORKING ON A PRETTY BIG
  • 00:25:16.280 --> 00:25:20.160
  • PROJECT TOGETHER, THERE'S 26 NEW VEGGIE TALES.
  • 00:25:20.180 --> 00:25:24.160
  • I'VE JUST NOTICED HOW UNIQUELY SIMILAR YOUR
  • 00:25:24.180 --> 00:25:31.110
  • ACTUAL TALKING VOICE IS TO YOUR CHARACTER VOICES.
  • 00:25:31.130 --> 00:25:34.160
  • AND MIKE'S IS NOT.
  • 00:25:34.180 --> 00:25:36.140
  • MIKE HAS THIS VERY BARITONE RESONATE RADIO
  • 00:25:36.160 --> 00:25:39.110
  • VOICE, BUT THEN YOU GO WAY UP AND YOU DO LARRY.
  • 00:25:39.130 --> 00:25:44.030
  • BUT YOU SLIP IN AND OUT OF BOB ALL THE TIME.
  • 00:25:44.050 --> 00:25:47.270
  • YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW IT ANYMORE.
  • 00:25:47.290 --> 00:25:49.130
  • - BOB IS ME ON CAFFEINE. I'VE TURNED INTO BOB.
  • 00:25:49.150 --> 00:25:52.240
  • IT'S FUNNY BECAUSE I'LL SPEAK AT COLLEGE CAMPUSES
  • 00:25:52.260 --> 00:25:55.000
  • AND TELL MY STORY, WHICH IS DEEP AND MOVING AND
  • 00:25:55.020 --> 00:25:57.110
  • PROFOUND, AND THEN SOMEONE ALWAYS COMES UP
  • 00:25:57.130 --> 00:25:59.020
  • AFTERWARDS AND SAYS ALL I COULD HEAR WAS
  • 00:25:59.040 --> 00:26:00.110
  • BOB THE TOMATO.
  • 00:26:00.130 --> 00:26:02.210
  • - WHEN MY KIDS WERE YOUNGER, I WOULD SPEAK IN
  • 00:26:02.230 --> 00:26:04.240
  • A LITTLE HIGHER PITCHED VOICE TO THEM ALL THE TIME.
  • 00:26:04.260 --> 00:26:06.180
  • - JUST TO NOT SCARE THEM.
  • 00:26:06.200 --> 00:26:08.030
  • - JUST TO NOT SCARE THEM, YEAH.
  • 00:26:08.050 --> 00:26:09.140
  • - BECAUSE THEY'RE LITTLE.
  • 00:26:09.160 --> 00:26:11.010
  • - BUT PEOPLE WOULD SAY OH, I HEAR LARRY IN THERE.
  • 00:26:11.030 --> 00:26:14.020
  • - OKAY, DO LARRY AGAIN FOR US.
  • 00:26:14.040 --> 00:26:17.220
  • - [LARRY VOICE] LARRY IS WAY UP HERE.
  • 00:26:17.240 --> 00:26:19.130
  • I SHOVE IT RIGHT OUT MY NOSE.
  • 00:26:19.150 --> 00:26:22.070
  • - SEE, BOB JUST COMES OUT OF YOU NATURALLY.
  • 00:26:22.090 --> 00:26:25.030
  • - HI MATT!
  • 00:26:25.050 --> 00:26:27.260
  • I CAN'T HELP IT, IT TAKES A LITTLE MORE EFFORT.
  • 00:26:27.280 --> 00:26:31.130
  • AND PA GRAPE TAKES A WHOLE LOT OF WIND TO MAKE
  • 00:26:31.150 --> 00:26:34.150
  • IT HAPPEN WHICH MAKES YOU TIRED BEFORE YOU FINISH A
  • 00:26:34.170 --> 00:26:37.280
  • SENTENCE. AND JIMMY GOURD IS REALLY EASY.
  • 00:26:38.000 --> 00:26:40.070
  • IT'S WAY UP HERE.
  • 00:26:40.090 --> 00:26:42.120
  • LIKE YOU KNOW, WELL, DIFFERENT THINGS.
  • 00:26:42.140 --> 00:26:45.060
  • - OKAY, SO MIKE, THE IDEA THAT WE HAVE
  • 00:26:45.080 --> 00:26:50.140
  • REBOOTED ALL OF THIS, IS IT LIKE RIDING A BIKE?
  • 00:26:50.160 --> 00:26:55.060
  • DID YOU JUMP RIGHT BACK ON THE BIKE AND GET AFTER
  • 00:26:55.080 --> 00:26:57.150
  • THIS? OR WAS THERE, I MEAN ARE YOU LARRY?
  • 00:26:57.170 --> 00:27:00.280
  • DO YOU KIND OF--
  • 00:27:01.000 --> 00:27:03.010
  • - OH, YEAH, WELL I FELT LIKE IT'S BEEN SUCH A PART
  • 00:27:03.030 --> 00:27:05.170
  • OF MY LIFE, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:27:05.190 --> 00:27:07.150
  • DECADES I WAS INVOLVED WITH VEGGIE TALES AS
  • 00:27:07.170 --> 00:27:10.160
  • LARRY, SO WHEN I LEFT BIG IDEA FULL TIME IN 2016, I
  • 00:27:10.180 --> 00:27:15.190
  • KIND OF HAD TO FIGURE OUT OKAY, WHAT AM I SUPPOSED
  • 00:27:15.210 --> 00:27:18.260
  • TO DO NOW WITH MY LIFE, AND GOD'S OPENED UP SOME
  • 00:27:18.280 --> 00:27:21.060
  • OTHER REALLY WONDERFUL OPPORTUNITIES.
  • 00:27:21.080 --> 00:27:23.120
  • BUT THEN WHEN THIS CAME BACK AROUND, THE
  • 00:27:23.140 --> 00:27:26.000
  • OPPORTUNITY TO WRITE AND VOICE AGAIN FOR THIS
  • 00:27:26.020 --> 00:27:29.100
  • CHARACTER AND THESE CHARACTERS THAT I'VE JUST
  • 00:27:29.120 --> 00:27:31.050
  • GROWN TO LOVE OVER THE YEARS, IT WAS REALLY
  • 00:27:31.070 --> 00:27:32.290
  • REALLY AMAZING FOR ME.
  • 00:27:33.010 --> 00:27:34.230
  • - OKAY, I HAVE A QUESTION.
  • 00:27:34.250 --> 00:27:36.010
  • DID YOU FEEL LIKE YOU NEEDED TO DO SOMETHING
  • 00:27:36.030 --> 00:27:37.220
  • DIFFERENT 20 YEARS LATER? WRITE DIFFERENTLY?
  • 00:27:37.240 --> 00:27:42.010
  • HOW DID THE CULTURE AND DID THAT--
  • 00:27:42.030 --> 00:27:44.240
  • - YEAH. FOR ME, I REALLY WANTED TO BRING IN A DEEPER
  • 00:27:44.260 --> 00:27:49.270
  • SENSE OF SPIRITUALITY TO MY WRITING BECAUSE WHEN
  • 00:27:49.290 --> 00:27:52.130
  • I STARTED WRITING VEGGIE TALES, I WAS 25.
  • 00:27:52.150 --> 00:27:54.200
  • WHAT DO YOU KNOW WHEN YOU'RE 25?
  • 00:27:54.220 --> 00:27:56.130
  • HOW LONG HAVE YOU WALKED WITH JESUS AT 25?
  • 00:27:56.150 --> 00:27:59.030
  • AND I'M 53 NOW. SO THERE'S A RICHNESS.
  • 00:27:59.050 --> 00:28:03.200
  • IT'S EASY TO JUST ANSWER A QUESTION, OKAY,
  • 00:28:03.220 --> 00:28:06.050
  • WHY SHOULD WE FORGIVE? BECAUSE GOD SAYS FORGIVE.
  • 00:28:06.070 --> 00:28:08.180
  • WOO-HOO, THERE, WE'RE DONE!
  • 00:28:08.200 --> 00:28:10.040
  • BUT TO GO DEEPER WITH KIDS AND REALLY UNPACK
  • 00:28:10.060 --> 00:28:13.040
  • WHAT DOES FORGIVENESS DO FOR YOU, HOW DOES THE
  • 00:28:13.060 --> 00:28:16.090
  • HOLY SPIRIT BRING OUT THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT IN
  • 00:28:16.110 --> 00:28:19.110
  • US, BECAUSE ONE OF THE THINGS I'VE BEEN DOING
  • 00:28:19.130 --> 00:28:20.290
  • WHILE WRITING THIS IS GOING THROUGH THE FRUIT
  • 00:28:21.010 --> 00:28:22.210
  • OF THE SPIRIT FOR EVERY VEGGIE TALES EPISODE, THE
  • 00:28:22.230 --> 00:28:24.180
  • NEW ONES WE'RE DOING, GO THROUGH THE FRUIT OF THE
  • 00:28:24.200 --> 00:28:27.000
  • SPIRIT AND NOT JUST TAKE THEM AS VALUES BUT TAKE
  • 00:28:27.020 --> 00:28:30.010
  • THEM AS CHARACTERISTICS OF GOD THAT WILL COME OUT
  • 00:28:30.030 --> 00:28:34.010
  • OF US WHEN WE'RE WALKING WITH GOD.
  • 00:28:34.030 --> 00:28:36.230
  • AND THAT'S SOMETHING THAT'S RICHER AND DEEPER
  • 00:28:36.250 --> 00:28:39.020
  • THAT YOU CAN WRITE LATER IN YOUR LIFE WITH MORE
  • 00:28:39.040 --> 00:28:43.000
  • DEPTH THAN YOU CAN WHEN YOU'RE YOUNGER.
  • 00:28:43.020 --> 00:28:44.290
  • - SO YOU'VE RICHENED THE CONTENT.
  • 00:28:45.010 --> 00:28:47.250
  • - YES.
  • 00:28:47.270 --> 00:28:49.050
  • - FROM LIFE EXPERIENCE.
  • 00:28:49.070 --> 00:28:50.150
  • - I'M GONNA SAY ENRICHED.
  • 00:28:50.170 --> 00:28:52.120
  • - ENRICHED WOULD BE A BETTER WORD.
  • 00:28:52.140 --> 00:28:53.250
  • - MAYBE. BUT I'M A WRITER SO.
  • 00:28:53.270 --> 00:28:56.240
  • - WHAT DOES HE KNOW, HONEY?
  • 00:28:56.260 --> 00:28:59.120
  • - OKAY. HAS THERE EVER BEEN LIKE A CONNECTION TO SOME
  • 00:28:59.140 --> 00:29:06.290
  • REALLY KIND OF HORRIBLE THING IN YOUR LIFE THAT
  • 00:29:07.010 --> 00:29:10.020
  • WAS THE IMPETUS TO WRITE SOMETHING THAT REALLY WAS
  • 00:29:10.040 --> 00:29:15.200
  • EMOTIONALLY HARD FOR YOU TO WRITE BASED UPON YOU
  • 00:29:15.220 --> 00:29:19.020
  • TRACKING IT TO SOME REAL LIFE SITUATION?
  • 00:29:19.040 --> 00:29:22.010
  • - YEAH, I MEAN I'VE WRITTEN A COUPLE OF
  • 00:29:22.030 --> 00:29:24.030
  • EPISODES WHERE BOB IS WRESTLING WITH LETTING GO
  • 00:29:24.050 --> 00:29:28.080
  • OF A DREAM, AND I'VE HAD TO DO THAT IN MY LIFE.
  • 00:29:28.100 --> 00:29:31.150
  • GOD HAS LED ME THROUGH THAT WHERE YOU SAY, WHERE
  • 00:29:31.170 --> 00:29:33.280
  • GOD SAYS THAT IS REALLY IMPORTANT TO YOU,
  • 00:29:34.000 --> 00:29:36.150
  • ARE YOU WILLING TO PUT IT ON THE ALTAR?
  • 00:29:36.170 --> 00:29:38.230
  • CAN YOU LET GO OF THAT AND LIVE WITHOUT IT?
  • 00:29:38.250 --> 00:29:41.050
  • AND I FIND THAT'S SUCH A DEEP PART OF EVERYONE'S
  • 00:29:41.070 --> 00:29:45.130
  • WALK WITH CHRIST. IT'S LIKE OKAY,
  • 00:29:45.150 --> 00:29:48.190
  • ARE YOU REALLY GIVING HIM YOUR LIFE? SERIOUSLY.
  • 00:29:48.210 --> 00:29:51.130
  • ARE YOU REALLY, IF WE CALL CHRIST LORD, WHAT
  • 00:29:51.150 --> 00:29:54.070
  • DOES THAT ACTUALLY MEAN?
  • 00:29:54.090 --> 00:29:55.230
  • IT'S NOT JUST A TITLE, IT'S A POSTURE.
  • 00:29:55.250 --> 00:29:58.230
  • IT'S LIKE EVERYTHING, MY HOPES, MY DREAMS, MY
  • 00:29:58.250 --> 00:30:01.290
  • GOALS, AM I GIVING THOSE TO JESUS AND SAYING
  • 00:30:02.010 --> 00:30:06.000
  • THEY'RE YOURS TO WORRY ABOUT, THEY'RE NOT MINE.
  • 00:30:06.020 --> 00:30:08.060
  • SO WRITING THAT INTO BOB AND GIVING BOB A GOAL, OR
  • 00:30:08.080 --> 00:30:11.230
  • A DREAM, OR A HOPE THAT HE HAS TO LET GO OF, YOU
  • 00:30:11.250 --> 00:30:14.170
  • KNOW, IT'S REALLY EASY TO WRITE THAT, BUT IT WILL
  • 00:30:14.190 --> 00:30:17.200
  • GET TO ME WHEN I'M TRYING TO WRITE THAT DIALOGUE
  • 00:30:17.220 --> 00:30:21.080
  • BECAUSE IT CAN BE SO PERSONAL FOR EVERYONE.
  • 00:30:21.100 --> 00:30:24.160
  • WE'VE ALL HAD TO GIVE UP STUFF.
  • 00:30:24.180 --> 00:30:25.280
  • - I LOVE THAT.
  • 00:30:26.000 --> 00:30:27.150
  • I LOVE THAT BECAUSE I KNOW THAT THE OLDER YOU
  • 00:30:27.170 --> 00:30:29.210
  • GET, IT'S LIKE THE MORE-- - EXPERIENCE.
  • 00:30:29.230 --> 00:30:33.080
  • - THE MORE EXPERIENCE.
  • 00:30:33.100 --> 00:30:34.150
  • - ACHES, PAINS.
  • 00:30:34.170 --> 00:30:36.230
  • - AND TO WEAVE THAT INTO EVEN MORE OF AN
  • 00:30:36.250 --> 00:30:39.150
  • ENRICHMENT FOR CHILDREN IS AMAZING.
  • 00:30:39.170 --> 00:30:42.280
  • - WELL, WHEN GOD ALLOWS YOU TO LOSE SOMETHING--
  • 00:30:43.000 --> 00:30:47.040
  • BECAUSE I CREATED CHARACTERS, I ALWAYS
  • 00:30:47.060 --> 00:30:49.060
  • VIEWED THEM AS MINE!
  • 00:30:49.080 --> 00:30:50.290
  • I DREW BOB, I DREW LARRY, THEY'RE MINE! AND THEN--
  • 00:30:51.010 --> 00:30:55.180
  • - I'VE EXPERIENCED THAT IN A BOARD MEETING WITH YOU.
  • 00:30:55.200 --> 00:30:57.170
  • - MINE!
  • 00:30:57.190 --> 00:30:59.140
  • AND THEN YOU START TO REALIZE WOW, I'M SORT OF
  • 00:30:59.160 --> 00:31:02.100
  • RESEMBLING GOLLUM FROM THE LORD OF THE RINGS.
  • 00:31:02.120 --> 00:31:05.080
  • I'M HANGING ON TO MY PRECIOUS.
  • 00:31:05.100 --> 00:31:08.030
  • THIS IS MY PRECIOUS.
  • 00:31:08.050 --> 00:31:09.280
  • AND TO GO THROUGH THE PROCESS.
  • 00:31:10.000 --> 00:31:12.120
  • AND FOR ME IT HAD TO BE BANKRUPTCY.
  • 00:31:12.140 --> 00:31:14.090
  • IT WAS LITERALLY LOSING THE COMPANY.
  • 00:31:14.110 --> 00:31:16.130
  • THAT WAS THE ONLY WAY GOD COULD PRY MY FINGERS OFF
  • 00:31:16.150 --> 00:31:20.140
  • SOMETHING THAT HAD BECOME AN IDOL, BECAUSE
  • 00:31:20.160 --> 00:31:22.090
  • AN IDOL ISN'T ALWAYS SOMETHING BAD.
  • 00:31:22.110 --> 00:31:24.070
  • AN IDOL CAN BE SOMETHING GOOD THAT YOU MAKE ULTIMATE.
  • 00:31:24.090 --> 00:31:27.140
  • ANYTHING, ANY GOOD THING, FAMILY CAN BE AN IDOL,
  • 00:31:27.160 --> 00:31:30.250
  • MINISTRY CAN BE AN IDOL, ANY GOOD THING THAT
  • 00:31:30.270 --> 00:31:34.030
  • BECOMES AN ULTIMATE THING IS NOW AN IDOL.
  • 00:31:34.050 --> 00:31:37.050
  • AND TIM KELLER IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE PREACHERS,
  • 00:31:37.070 --> 00:31:39.290
  • AND HE'LL SAY ANYTHING OTHER THAN GOD THAT
  • 00:31:40.010 --> 00:31:41.240
  • BECOMES ULTIMATE WILL LET YOU DOWN
  • 00:31:41.260 --> 00:31:44.200
  • AND BREAK YOUR HEART.
  • 00:31:44.220 --> 00:31:45.280
  • - MATT: OH, MY GOODNESS.
  • 00:31:46.000 --> 00:31:47.090
  • - THAT'S WHY WE ALWAYS WANT TO KEEP GOD
  • 00:31:47.110 --> 00:31:48.190
  • AS THE ULTIMATE THING.
  • 00:31:48.210 --> 00:31:49.290
  • IT'S NOT BECAUSE HE'S JEALOUS AND HE DOESN'T
  • 00:31:50.010 --> 00:31:52.020
  • WANT YOU TO HAVE FUN WITH YOUR DREAMS.
  • 00:31:52.040 --> 00:31:54.080
  • IT'S BECAUSE ANYTHING OTHER THAN HIM WILL BREAK
  • 00:31:54.100 --> 00:31:56.090
  • YOUR HEART BECAUSE IT WILL LET YOU DOWN.
  • 00:31:56.110 --> 00:31:58.220
  • SO IN A REAL SENSE, MY OWN DREAM OF BUILDING A
  • 00:31:58.240 --> 00:32:02.250
  • DISNEY FOR GOD, OF BEING WALT DISNEY FOR GOD,
  • 00:32:02.270 --> 00:32:07.060
  • BROKE MY HEART BECAUSE THERE'S NO WAY IT COULD
  • 00:32:07.080 --> 00:32:10.120
  • FULFILL THAT-- THE THING THAT ONLY GOD CAN FULFILL.
  • 00:32:10.140 --> 00:32:13.260
  • SO COMING BACK, GETTING A SECOND CHANCE TO WRITE
  • 00:32:13.280 --> 00:32:16.060
  • FOR THE CHARACTERS BECAUSE I HAVEN'T WRITTEN
  • 00:32:16.080 --> 00:32:17.230
  • ANYTHING FOR BOB AND LARRY IN TEN YEARS,
  • 00:32:17.250 --> 00:32:19.260
  • INDIANA JONES, LOCKED AWAY IN THE BIG THING,
  • 00:32:19.280 --> 00:32:22.120
  • I THOUGHT THAT WAS IT. NO MORE BOB AND LARRY.
  • 00:32:22.140 --> 00:32:24.220
  • SO TO GET ANOTHER CHANCE TO WRITE FOR THE
  • 00:32:24.240 --> 00:32:26.200
  • CHARACTERS BUT HOLDING THEM LOOSELY.
  • 00:32:26.220 --> 00:32:29.170
  • I HAD A MOMENT WHERE I WAS KICKING MYSELF AFTER
  • 00:32:29.190 --> 00:32:31.170
  • I'D LOST THE CHARACTERS IN BANKRUPTCY, AND I
  • 00:32:31.190 --> 00:32:33.170
  • THOUGHT I DON'T HAVE CONTROL OF THEM ANYMORE,
  • 00:32:33.190 --> 00:32:35.140
  • I LOST CONTROL OF THE CHARACTERS.
  • 00:32:35.160 --> 00:32:36.260
  • THE CIHLDREN NEED THE CHARACTERS, NOW I
  • 00:32:36.280 --> 00:32:39.050
  • LOST CONTROL OF THEM! OH, HOW TERRIBLE OF ME!
  • 00:32:39.070 --> 00:32:42.040
  • AND I WAS PRAYING ABOUT THAT, AND GOD SAID
  • 00:32:42.060 --> 00:32:44.010
  • SOMETHING TO ME THAT REALLY JUST KNOCKED ME DOWN.
  • 00:32:44.030 --> 00:32:46.250
  • HE SAID DO YOU REALLY THINK YOU WERE EVER IN CONTROL?
  • 00:32:46.270 --> 00:32:50.110
  • LIKE, YOU THINK THEY WERE YOUR CHARACTERS?
  • 00:32:50.130 --> 00:32:53.190
  • THAT YOU WERE CONTROLLING?
  • 00:32:53.210 --> 00:32:56.090
  • I REALIZED NO, THEY WERE NEVER MY CHARACTERS.
  • 00:32:56.110 --> 00:32:59.010
  • THEY WERE ALWAYS YOUR CHARACTERS.
  • 00:32:59.030 --> 00:33:01.060
  • YOU WERE ALWAYS IN CONTROL.
  • 00:33:01.080 --> 00:33:02.240
  • AND THAT WAS THE ONLY WAY I COULD MAKE PEACE WITH
  • 00:33:02.260 --> 00:33:04.260
  • HAVING LOST THEM WAS THEY'RE GOD'S CHARACTERS,
  • 00:33:04.280 --> 00:33:08.050
  • THEY WERE ALWAYS GOD'S CHARACTERS.
  • 00:33:08.070 --> 00:33:09.200
  • SO TO HAVE THEM COME BACK AND THEY'RE NOT,
  • 00:33:09.220 --> 00:33:11.260
  • AGAIN I DON'T OWN THEM.
  • 00:33:11.280 --> 00:33:13.080
  • THEY'RE NOT MINE, BUT TO BE INVITED TO STEWARD
  • 00:33:13.100 --> 00:33:17.160
  • THEM AGAIN IS LIKE GOD WANTS TO RECONCILE ALL
  • 00:33:17.180 --> 00:33:22.140
  • THINGS, AND THERE WAS SOMETHING BROKEN ABOUT MY
  • 00:33:22.160 --> 00:33:24.140
  • RELATIONSHIP WITH THESE CHARACTERS THAT GOD IS
  • 00:33:24.160 --> 00:33:26.230

  • 00:36:40.240 --> 00:36:41.220
  • - UM...
  • 00:36:41.240 --> 00:36:43.020
  • - 17? IT'S A LOT. WHAT ELSE IS THERE TO SAY?
  • 00:36:43.040 --> 00:36:47.150
  • AND THEN SOMETHING OCCURRED TO ME.
  • 00:36:47.170 --> 00:36:49.040
  • I HAD WRITTEN A BLOG POST ABOUT A COUPLE OF WEEKS
  • 00:36:49.060 --> 00:36:53.120
  • AFTER COLUMBINE. NOT COLUMBINE, SANDY HOOK.
  • 00:36:53.140 --> 00:36:57.020
  • THE SANDY HOOK SHOOTINGS, WHICH WERE A BRUTALLY
  • 00:36:57.040 --> 00:36:59.030
  • HARD TIME FOR THE COUNTRY.
  • 00:36:59.050 --> 00:37:00.290
  • AND I NOTICED SANDY HOOK HAPPENED IN EARLY
  • 00:37:01.010 --> 00:37:03.070
  • DECEMBER, AND I'M WATCHING THE NEWS, AND
  • 00:37:03.090 --> 00:37:05.280
  • PEOPLE WERE SAYING I THINK WE'RE GONNA TAKE
  • 00:37:06.000 --> 00:37:08.170
  • DOWN OUR CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS BECAUSE WE
  • 00:37:08.190 --> 00:37:10.140
  • JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND, HOW CAN WE CELEBRATE
  • 00:37:10.160 --> 00:37:12.090
  • CHRISTMAS AFTER SOMETHING THAT TERRIBLE HAPPENS.
  • 00:37:12.110 --> 00:37:15.220
  • AND IT JUST STRUCK ME THAT THAT'S EXACTLY WHY
  • 00:37:15.240 --> 00:37:20.080
  • WE SHOULD CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS.
  • 00:37:20.100 --> 00:37:22.020
  • CHRISTMAS IS THE STORY OF GOD BREAKING IN TO A
  • 00:37:22.040 --> 00:37:25.120
  • BROKEN WORLD TO MAKE IT WHOLE.
  • 00:37:25.140 --> 00:37:28.030
  • CHRISTMAS IS THE BEGINNING OF THE END
  • 00:37:28.050 --> 00:37:31.040
  • WHERE HE'S GOING TO SET EVERYTHING RIGHT, WHERE
  • 00:37:31.060 --> 00:37:34.060
  • THE TEARS, ALL THE HURTING IS GONNA GO AWAY,
  • 00:37:34.080 --> 00:37:37.130
  • SO WHAT BETTER TIME IS THERE TO CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS
  • 00:37:37.150 --> 00:37:40.270
  • THAN AFTER SOMETHING HORRIBLE HAS HAPPENED.
  • 00:37:40.290 --> 00:37:43.150
  • THEN I REMEMBER I GOT AN EMAIL FROM AN OLD FRIEND
  • 00:37:43.170 --> 00:37:45.240
  • WHOSE WIFE HAD JUST DIED OF CANCER LIKE THE SAME
  • 00:37:45.260 --> 00:37:49.250
  • WEEK, AND HE WAS FACING HIS FIRST CHRISTMAS
  • 00:37:49.270 --> 00:37:51.230
  • WITHOUT HIS WIFE, AND HE JUST SAID THANK YOU, THAT
  • 00:37:51.250 --> 00:37:53.260
  • IS EXACTLY WHAT I NEEDED.
  • 00:37:53.280 --> 00:37:56.010
  • WE'RE GONNA PUT UP OUR CHRISTMAS TREE BECAUSE
  • 00:37:56.030 --> 00:37:58.050
  • WE HAVE SOMETHING TO CELEBRATE.
  • 00:37:58.070 --> 00:37:59.230
  • SO WHEN THEY SAID WHAT COULD THIS NEW VEGGIE
  • 00:37:59.250 --> 00:38:01.170
  • BE ABOUT, I THOUGHT IS THERE A WAY TO MAKE
  • 00:38:01.190 --> 00:38:03.270
  • THAT MESSAGE WORK FOR KIDS.
  • 00:38:03.290 --> 00:38:06.180
  • IF YOU'RE A KID AND YOUR DAD LOST HIS JOB
  • 00:38:06.200 --> 00:38:08.140
  • RIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS.
  • 00:38:08.160 --> 00:38:10.000
  • IF SOMETHING BAD HAS HAPPENED AT SCHOOL RIGHT
  • 00:38:10.020 --> 00:38:11.270
  • BEFORE CHRISTMAS, DO YOU REALLY FEEL LIKE
  • 00:38:11.290 --> 00:38:13.230
  • CELEBRATING CHRISTMAS.
  • 00:38:13.250 --> 00:38:15.170
  • BUT WHEN YOU GIVE KIDS THIS KINGDOM PERSPECTIVE
  • 00:38:15.190 --> 00:38:18.200
  • THAT JESUS' COMING WASN'T JUST SO YOU COULD
  • 00:38:18.220 --> 00:38:21.010
  • HANG DECORATIONS. JESUS' COMING WAS THE
  • 00:38:21.030 --> 00:38:24.140
  • BEGINNING OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD THAT'S GONNA
  • 00:38:24.160 --> 00:38:26.020
  • SET EVERYTHING RIGHT,
  • 00:38:26.040 --> 00:38:27.200
  • THAT'S GONNA MAKE ALL THE SAD UNTRUE.
  • 00:38:27.220 --> 00:38:30.040
  • - REDEMPTION.
  • 00:38:30.060 --> 00:38:31.170
  • - YEAH, SO THAT'S WHAT THE STORY IS ABOUT AT A
  • 00:38:31.190 --> 00:38:33.240
  • KID SIZE LEVEL, WHY SHOULD WE CELEBRATE
  • 00:38:33.260 --> 00:38:36.110
  • CHRISTMAS EVEN WHEN THINGS ARE GOING WRONG
  • 00:38:36.130 --> 00:38:38.260
  • IN A WORLD WHERE THINGS ALWAYS GO WRONG.
  • 00:38:38.280 --> 00:38:41.010
  • AND THAT'S WHAT CHRISTMAS IS ABOUT.
  • 00:38:41.030 --> 00:38:43.090
  • - WE ARE SO DELIGHTED, THRILLED.
  • 00:38:43.110 --> 00:38:46.250
  • LOOK, I'VE BEEN A FAN OF YOU GUYS FOREVER.
  • 00:38:46.270 --> 00:38:49.270
  • - I THOUGHT YOU WEREN'T GONNA TELL THEM THAT.
  • 00:38:49.290 --> 00:38:51.240
  • - NO, I'M TOTALLY FAN-BOYING RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:38:51.260 --> 00:38:53.270
  • WHEN YOU CAME INTO MY OFFICE THE FIRST TIME,
  • 00:38:53.290 --> 00:38:57.000
  • I MADE HIM GET A CUE CARD AND DRAW BOB AND LARRY
  • 00:38:57.020 --> 00:39:02.090
  • AND SIGN IT, AND IT'S SITTING UP IN MY OFFICE.

  • - I DID. - OKAY.
  • 00:42:52.010 --> 00:42:53.110
  • - WE LOVE IT.
  • 00:42:53.130 --> 00:42:55.020
  • - HELP US. GO TO SQUARE ONE OF THIS THING, SO WHAT HAPPENED?
  • 00:42:55.040 --> 00:43:01.110
  • - OKAY, SO AFTER THE BANKRUPTCY AND I
  • 00:43:01.130 --> 00:43:03.240
  • LOST MY VEGETABLES.
  • 00:43:03.260 --> 00:43:05.020
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:43:05.040 --> 00:43:06.270
  • IT'S LIKE I DON'T HAVE ANYTHING TO DO, SO I'M
  • 00:43:06.290 --> 00:43:09.030
  • PRAYING ABOUT IT, AND I FELT GOD TELLING ME, TAKE KIDS
  • 00:43:09.050 --> 00:43:14.050
  • DEEPER IN THEIR FAITH.
  • 00:43:14.070 --> 00:43:15.240
  • TAKE THEM DEEPER INTO THE BIBLE, DEEPER THAN YOU CAN
  • 00:43:15.260 --> 00:43:18.040
  • WITH JUST BOUNCY, HAPPY PRESCHOOL VEGETABLES.
  • 00:43:18.060 --> 00:43:22.000
  • SO I DID A SERIES CALLED "WHAT'S IN THE BIBLE" THAT
  • 00:43:22.020 --> 00:43:24.170
  • WALKED KIDS THROUGH THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS TO REVELATION
  • 00:43:24.190 --> 00:43:27.020
  • AND TRIED TO ANSWER THEIR BIG QUESTIONS AND MENTIONED
  • 00:43:27.040 --> 00:43:29.050
  • EVERY SINGLE BOOK.
  • 00:43:29.070 --> 00:43:31.000
  • AND THAT TOOK FIVE YEARS TO MAKE THAT, IT'S A DVD SERIES.
  • 00:43:31.020 --> 00:43:33.150
  • AND AFTER THAT WAS DONE, ONE THING YOU LEARN WHEN YOU TRY
  • 00:43:33.170 --> 00:43:37.070
  • TO TEACH SOMETHING IS THAT YOU DON'T KNOW AS MUCH ABOUT
  • 00:43:37.090 --> 00:43:39.090
  • IT AS YOU THOUGHT YOU DID.
  • 00:43:39.110 --> 00:43:40.290
  • SO TRYING TO TEACH THE ENTIRE BIBLE TO KIDS,
  • 00:43:41.010 --> 00:43:44.000
  • I LEARNED SO MUCH ABOUT THE BIBLE.
  • 00:43:44.020 --> 00:43:46.090
  • AND AFTER IT WAS DONE...
  • 00:43:46.110 --> 00:43:47.230
  • - WAY BETTER THAN BIBLE SCHOOL.
  • 00:43:47.250 --> 00:43:49.080
  • - IT WAS BETTER THAN BIBLE SCHOOL, YEAH, BECAUSE YOU
  • 00:43:49.100 --> 00:43:51.000
  • DON'T HAVE TO ACTUALLY PAY ATTENTION.
  • 00:43:51.020 --> 00:43:52.280
  • IN BIBLE SCHOOL, THEY DON'T -- ATTENTION IS
  • 00:43:53.000 --> 00:43:55.000
  • NOT REQUIRED.
  • 00:43:55.020 --> 00:43:56.180
  • AND NEITHER WITH CHAPEL ATTENDANCE, ATTENTION IS NOT.
  • 00:43:56.200 --> 00:43:59.110
  • SO I THOUGHT WHAT IF WE COULD TAKE ALL OF THAT
  • 00:43:59.130 --> 00:44:01.270
  • INFORMATION AND PUT IT INTO AN ACTUAL STORY
  • 00:44:01.290 --> 00:44:03.120
  • BOOK BIBLE FOR KIDS.
  • 00:44:03.140 --> 00:44:05.120
  • SO THE LAST AND LEARN BIBLE FOR KIDS IS 52 STORIES FROM
  • 00:44:05.140 --> 00:44:07.190
  • THE BIBLE STARTING WITH THE STORY OF CREATION, ENDING
  • 00:44:07.210 --> 00:44:10.090
  • WITH THE NEW CREATION, THE NEW HEAVEN AND EARTH AT THE
  • 00:44:10.110 --> 00:44:12.210
  • END OF REVELATION.
  • 00:44:12.230 --> 00:44:14.180
  • AND THEY'RE LITTLE FIVE MINUTE STORIES THAT YOU CAN
  • 00:44:14.200 --> 00:44:16.250
  • READ TO YOUR KIDS ARE GRAND KIDS BEFORE BED OR AFTER
  • 00:44:16.270 --> 00:44:18.260
  • DINNER AND THE KEY IS WHAT I'M TRYING TO DO IS QUITE
  • 00:44:18.280 --> 00:44:22.210
  • OFTEN WHEN WE TEACH KIDS THE BIBLE, WE DO ONE
  • 00:44:22.230 --> 00:44:24.120
  • OF TWO THINGS.
  • 00:44:24.140 --> 00:44:26.040
  • EITHER WE DROP A FULL TEXT KING JAMES IN THEIR LAB AND
  • 00:44:26.060 --> 00:44:29.040
  • SAY, "GOOD LUCK, KIDS." AND LIKE THE ISRAELITES THEY DIE
  • 00:44:29.060 --> 00:44:31.230
  • IN THE DESERT IN THE MIDDLE OF LEVITICUS SOMEWHERE.
  • 00:44:31.250 --> 00:44:34.130
  • OR WE JUST PICK AND CHOOSE A FEW LITTLE STORIES, AND THEY
  • 00:44:34.150 --> 00:44:38.050
  • GET THE FUN ONES.
  • 00:44:38.070 --> 00:44:39.250
  • THEY GET NOAH'S ARK, THEY GET DANIEL IN THE LION'S
  • 00:44:39.270 --> 00:44:41.210
  • DEN, ANYTHING WITH AN ANIMAL IN IT.
  • 00:44:41.230 --> 00:44:43.100
  • WE GIVE THEM THOSE STORIES.
  • 00:44:43.120 --> 00:44:45.050
  • AND WHAT THEY MISS IS THE CONNECTIVE TISSUE THAT
  • 00:44:45.070 --> 00:44:47.220
  • ACTUALLY MAKE THE BIBLE ONE COHESIVE STORY.
  • 00:44:47.240 --> 00:44:50.030
  • AND WHEN YOU DON'T HAVE THAT BIG MACRO STORY, LIKE WHAT
  • 00:44:50.050 --> 00:44:53.130
  • IS THE STORY OF THE BIBLE?
  • 00:44:53.150 --> 00:44:54.290
  • WHEN YOU DON'T HAVE THAT STORY, THE BIBLE DOESN'T
  • 00:44:55.010 --> 00:44:57.070
  • CAPTURE YOUR HEART.
  • 00:44:57.090 --> 00:44:59.070
  • AND IF THE BIBLE DOESN'T CAPTURE KIDS' HEARTS,
  • 00:44:59.090 --> 00:45:01.270
  • SOMETHING ELSE WILL, SO THEY'LL TURN TO STAR WARS.
  • 00:45:01.290 --> 00:45:04.150
  • THEY'LL TURN TO LORD OF THE RINGS.
  • 00:45:04.170 --> 00:45:06.210
  • THEY'LL TURN TO HARRY POTTER.
  • 00:45:06.230 --> 00:45:08.160
  • THEY WANT TO BE A PART OF A BIG STORY.
  • 00:45:08.180 --> 00:45:10.270
  • SO WHAT I'M TRYING TO DO WITH THIS IS GIVE THEM THE
  • 00:45:10.290 --> 00:45:14.020
  • STORY OF THE ENTIRE BIBLE IN A WAY THAT'S ACCESSIBLE TO
  • 00:45:14.040 --> 00:45:17.150
  • THEM SO THEY UNDERSTAND THE BIG STORY, AND THEN THEY CAN
  • 00:45:17.170 --> 00:45:21.010
  • FIND THEIR OWN PLACE IN IT.
  • 00:45:21.030 --> 00:45:23.110
  • AND IF THEY CAN FIND THEIR PLACE IN THE GOSPEL, IN THE
  • 00:45:23.130 --> 00:45:26.190
  • STORY OF THE BIBLE, THEY CAN BUILD A FOUNDATION FOR THEIR
  • 00:45:26.210 --> 00:45:29.190
  • FAITH THAT WILL LAST THEIR WHOLE LIVES.
  • 00:45:29.210 --> 00:45:31.110

  • WHAT IF THEY WERE IN AN OLD THEATER DOING A VARIETY SHOW?
  • 00:51:39.060 --> 00:51:41.240

  • 00:51:49.100 --> 00:51:52.110
  • MY FAVORITE SHOW WHEN I WAS A KIDSGROWING UP.
  • 00:51:52.130 --> 00:51:54.110
  • AND I THOUGHT THAT WOULD BE SO MUCH FUN TO DO THAT AND
  • 00:51:54.130 --> 00:51:57.180
  • DO A VARIETY SHOW FORMAT BECAUSE YOU COULD DO MORE
  • 00:51:57.200 --> 00:52:00.120
  • SIMPLER SHORTER SEGMENTS, WHICH ALWAYS MEANS YOU CAN
  • 00:52:00.140 --> 00:52:02.060
  • BE SILLIER IN SHORTER SEGMENTS.
  • 00:52:02.080 --> 00:52:04.010
  • - YEAH, WITH THE SHOW, WITH VEGGIE TALES SHOW, WE'D END
  • 00:52:04.030 --> 00:52:05.170
  • UP GOING BACK AND REBUILDING BIG ELABORATE SETS IF WE'RE
  • 00:52:05.190 --> 00:52:09.110
  • GOING BACK TO BIBLE TIMES.
  • 00:52:09.130 --> 00:52:11.160
  • TO BE ABLE TO DO THAT IN STAGE CRAFT ON A THEATER
  • 00:52:11.180 --> 00:52:13.170
  • STAGE BECOMES A REALLY PRACTICAL WAY TO DO IT.
  • 00:52:13.190 --> 00:52:15.260
  • - BUT EVEN MORE FUN, IT MEANS YOU CANNOT ONLY SEE
  • 00:52:15.280 --> 00:52:18.090
  • WHAT'S GOING ON IN FRONT OF THE CURTAIN,
  • 00:52:18.110 --> 00:52:20.030
  • YOU CAN SEE WHAT'S GOING ON BEHIND THE CURTAIN WHEN THE
  • 00:52:20.050 --> 00:52:22.040
  • SHOW ISN'T GOING WELL BACKSTAGE BECAUSE BOB, YOU
  • 00:52:22.060 --> 00:52:24.210
  • KNOW LIKE KERMIT THE FROG IN CLASSIC MUPPETS SHOW, IS
  • 00:52:24.230 --> 00:52:27.200
  • TRYING TO GET THE SHOW ON TIME, AND EVERYTHING'S GOING
  • 00:52:27.220 --> 00:52:30.210
  • WRONG, AND YOU CAN SEE THAT HAPPEN.
  • 00:52:30.230 --> 00:52:32.210
  • SO IT WAS A WAY TO BREATHE NEW LIFE INTO IT, NEW ENERGY
  • 00:52:32.230 --> 00:52:37.000
  • INTO IT WHILE ALSO MAKING IT FEEL VERY FAMILIAR.
  • 00:52:37.020 --> 00:52:39.200
  • IT'S STILL ABOUT BOB AND LARRY PUTTING ON A SHOW.
  • 00:52:39.220 --> 00:52:41.220
  • - THEY STILL GET A LETTER FROM A CHILD AT THE BEGINNING.
  • 00:52:41.240 --> 00:52:43.290
  • - AND HAVE TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO ANSWER THE LETTER.
  • 00:52:44.010 --> 00:52:46.100
  • AND THEY CAN TELL A BIBLE STORY IN EVERY SINGLE SHOW
  • 00:52:46.120 --> 00:52:49.060
  • AND WRAP IT UP WITH A SONG AND A VERSE AND A
  • 00:52:49.080 --> 00:52:52.060
  • LESSON FOR THE KID.
  • 00:52:52.080 --> 00:52:54.020
  • BUT IT'S IN A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT CONTEXT WHICH
  • 00:52:54.040 --> 00:52:56.030
  • CREATES JUST NEW CREATIVE POSSIBILITIES.
  • 00:52:56.050 --> 00:52:58.080
  • - HAVE YOU EVER SAID TO MIKE, THAT'S A SILLY SONG,
  • 00:52:58.100 --> 00:53:02.060
  • BUT JUST TOO SILLY?
  • 00:53:02.080 --> 00:53:04.040
  • - QUITE A FEW TIMES. [LAUGHTER] QUITE A FEW TIMES.
  • 00:53:04.060 --> 00:53:07.040
  • - NOT TOO SILLY.
  • 00:53:07.060 --> 00:53:09.090
  • - OR TOO INAPPROPRIATE.
  • 00:53:09.110 --> 00:53:11.020
  • - SOMETIMES INAPPROPRIATE [LAUGHTER].
  • 00:53:11.040 --> 00:53:13.280
  • I'M NOT SURE PENTECOSTALS ARE GOING TO LIKE THAT OR
  • 00:53:14.000 --> 00:53:15.280
  • CATHOLICS MIGHT NOT LIKE THAT.
  • 00:53:16.000 --> 00:53:18.150
  • - SO THE HAIR BRUSH SONG STARTED OFF AS ME SING ABOUT
  • 00:53:18.170 --> 00:53:20.290
  • NOT FINDING A RAZOR.
  • 00:53:21.010 --> 00:53:22.230
  • [SINGING] OH, WHERE IS MY RAZOR?
  • 00:53:22.250 --> 00:53:24.290
  • MIKE, YOU CAN'T SING A SONG ABOUT KIDS
  • 00:53:25.010 --> 00:53:26.230
  • LOOKING FOR RAZORS.
  • 00:53:26.250 --> 00:53:28.240
  • - WE DON'T WANT TO SEND KIDS AROUND THEIR HOMES
  • 00:53:28.260 --> 00:53:30.280
  • LOOKING FOR RAZOR BLADES.
  • 00:53:31.000 --> 00:53:32.220
  • - AND BARBER MANATEE WAS AN ENDANGERED SPECIES.
  • 00:53:32.240 --> 00:53:36.140
  • - YOU WERE COOKING THEM FIRST.
  • 00:53:36.160 --> 00:53:38.290
  • YOU WERE COOKING MANATEE.
  • 00:53:39.010 --> 00:53:40.240
  • - YEAH, NO, IT WAS REALLY BAD.
  • 00:53:40.260 --> 00:53:42.170
  • - AND I LOVE MY LIPS WAS INITIALLY I LOVE MY TONGUE.
  • 00:53:42.190 --> 00:53:44.120
  • - BECAUSE I WANTED TO YODEL.
  • 00:53:44.140 --> 00:53:46.060
  • - HE WANTED TO YODEL, AND I THOUGHT, OKAY, WELL,
  • 00:53:46.080 --> 00:53:47.210
  • EVERYONE WHO BELIEVES IN SPEAKING IN TONGUES IS GOING
  • 00:53:47.230 --> 00:53:49.210
  • TO THINK WE'RE MAKING FUN OF THEM, AND EVERYONE WHO
  • 00:53:49.230 --> 00:53:52.080
  • DOESN'T BELIEVE IN SPEAKING IT TONGUES IS GOING TO THINK
  • 00:53:52.100 --> 00:53:54.060
  • WE'RE PROMOTING SPEAKING IN TONGUES.
  • 00:53:54.080 --> 00:53:55.180
  • EVERYONE'S GOING TO BE MAD AT US.
  • 00:53:55.200 --> 00:53:57.100
  • SO YEAH, SOMETIMES I HAVE -- IT'S THE BOB IN ME.
  • 00:53:57.120 --> 00:54:00.180
  • I HAVE TO PLAY THE GROWN UP.
  • 00:54:00.200 --> 00:54:02.270
  • - STRAIGHT MAN.
  • 00:54:02.290 --> 00:54:04.130
  • - THAT SAYS NO, MIKE, YOU CANNOT DO THAT.
  • 00:54:04.150 --> 00:54:06.180
  • - AND I HAVE TO FIND ANOTHER WAY TO BE CREATIVE,
  • 00:54:06.200 --> 00:54:08.080
  • WHICH IS GOOD, IT'S ALWAYS GOOD.
  • 00:54:08.100 --> 00:54:10.130
  • - OKAY, SO THE SILLY SONGS COME OUT OF YOU, MIKE.
  • 00:54:10.150 --> 00:54:14.000
  • - MOST OF THEM, YEAH, A LOT OF THEM.
  • 00:54:14.020 --> 00:54:15.260
  • - WATER BUFFALO SONG IS MINE.
  • 00:54:15.280 --> 00:54:17.110
  • - WATER BUFFALO SONG, YEAH, YOU DID THAT.
  • 00:54:17.130 --> 00:54:19.010
  • AND THEN OVER THE YEARS, A LOT OF OTHER FOLKS HAVE
  • 00:54:19.030 --> 00:54:21.190
  • CONTRIBUTED, BUT YEAH, I'VE WRITTEN MOST OF THEM.
  • 00:54:21.210 --> 00:54:24.150
  • - WHEN WE WERE OLD AND TIRED.
  • 00:54:24.170 --> 00:54:25.250
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:54:25.270 --> 00:54:27.100
  • - WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE?
  • 00:54:27.120 --> 00:54:28.250

  • WELL, THE HAIR BRUSH SONG I GUESS YOU KNOW FOR ME,
  • 00:54:33.280 --> 00:54:36.290
  • THAT WAS KIND OF THE ONE THAT STARTED IT ALL.
  • 00:54:37.010 --> 00:54:38.290
  • THAT WAS MY FIRST SILLY SONG.
  • 00:54:39.010 --> 00:54:40.220
  • I LIKE THE PIRATES THAT DON'T DO ANYTHING.
  • 00:54:40.240 --> 00:54:42.290
  • I LIKE THE BELLY BUTTON SONG WHICH IS SORT OF A BOY BAND
  • 00:54:43.010 --> 00:54:44.130
  • SONG.
  • 00:54:44.150 --> 00:54:46.110
  • - YODELING VETERINARIAN OF THE ALPS.
  • 00:54:46.130 --> 00:54:47.270

  • - YEAH, I LOVE YODELING VETERINARIAN OF THE ALPS.
  • 00:54:49.160 --> 00:54:51.020
  • - DO A LITTLE BIT OF THAT ONE.
  • 00:54:51.040 --> 00:54:52.130
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:54:52.150 --> 00:54:54.220
  • - IT'S A STORY SONG. IT'S VERY LONG.
  • 00:54:54.240 --> 00:54:56.170
  • IT'S HARD TO DO
  • 00:54:56.190 --> 00:54:58.100
  • [SINGING] SO LONG AGO, HIS MEMORY IS BUT FATE...
  • 00:54:58.120 --> 00:55:00.160
  • I CAN'T REMEMBER, I CAN'T REMEMBER.
  • 00:55:00.180 --> 00:55:03.020
  • - [SINGING] THIS IS A SONG FOR POOR SICK KITTY...
  • 00:55:03.040 --> 00:55:06.060
  • HE GOT A FEVER AND FUR IS BLUE....
  • 00:55:06.080 --> 00:55:09.110

  • HE WILL FEEL BETTER IN A DAY OR TWO....
  • 00:55:12.290 --> 00:55:14.220
  • [YODELING]
  • 00:55:14.240 --> 00:55:18.160
  • SO I GOT TO YODEL.
  • 00:55:18.180 --> 00:55:20.060
  • - THE JOKE WAS THAT HE WAS THE DOCTOR.
  • 00:55:20.080 --> 00:55:22.290
  • HE THOUGHT HIS YODELING WAS CURING THE ANIMALS BUT IT
  • 00:55:23.010 --> 00:55:25.200
  • WAS HIS NURSE WHO WAS COMING IN AND GIVING THEM
  • 00:55:25.220 --> 00:55:27.210
  • PENICILLIN AFTERWARDS.
  • 00:55:27.230 --> 00:55:29.180
  • AND SO HE DOESN'T GIVE HIS NURSE A RAISE, AND THEN HE'S
  • 00:55:29.200 --> 00:55:32.060
  • TRYING TO CURE A BEAR, AND PAW SAYS, YEAH, HE'S GOOD.
  • 00:55:32.080 --> 00:55:34.220
  • AND THE BEAR EATS HIM.
  • 00:55:34.240 --> 00:55:39.260
  • - HE DOESN'T EAT HIM, HE JUST CHASES HIM.
  • 00:55:39.280 --> 00:55:41.270
  • - HE EATS HIM.
  • 00:55:41.290 --> 00:55:43.190
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:55:43.210 --> 00:55:45.160
  • - THERE'S ANOTHER ONE THAT I DID, WHICH I KIND OF LIKE.
  • 00:55:45.180 --> 00:55:47.220
  • I DON'T THINK THE KIDS GET IT, BUT IT'S CALLED
  • 00:55:47.240 --> 00:55:49.100
  • THE GATED COMMUNITY.
  • 00:55:49.120 --> 00:55:51.160
  • - OH, YEAH, KIDSARE ALL OVER THAT.
  • 00:55:51.180 --> 00:55:53.010
  • KIDS LOVE CLASS WARFARE.
  • 00:55:53.030 --> 00:55:55.120
  • - LARRY KICKS THE BALL, HE ACCIDENTALLY KICKS THE BALL
  • 00:55:55.140 --> 00:55:58.190
  • OVER THE GATE OF A GATED COMMUNITY, AND HE TRIES
  • 00:55:58.210 --> 00:56:00.170
  • TO GET IT BACK.
  • 00:56:00.190 --> 00:56:02.100
  • AND EVERYBODY IN THE GATED COMMUNITY IS JUST TOO BUSY
  • 00:56:02.120 --> 00:56:03.280
  • SINGING ABOUT HOW MUCH THEY LOVE THEIR GATED COMMUNITY.
  • 00:56:04.000 --> 00:56:05.140
  • - THAT'S WHEN MIKE WAS BECOMING A LITTLE TOO
  • 00:56:05.160 --> 00:56:06.260
  • SOCIALLY AWARE [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:56:06.280 --> 00:56:08.110
  • - OH, LORD.
  • 00:56:08.130 --> 00:56:13.080
  • - HEY, FUN TIME WAS HAD BY ALL.

  • IS ALL ABOUT VEGGIE TALES.
  • 00:56:21.050 --> 00:56:23.190
  • ALL THE INFORMATION IS NOT THE SCREEN.

  • CHRISTMAS GIFT?"
  • 00:56:33.210 --> 00:56:35.060
  • - IT'S TEACHING KIDS WHY CHRISTMAS
  • 00:56:35.080 --> 00:56:37.070
  • IS WORTH CELEBRATING EVEN WHEN THE WORLD IS HARD,
  • 00:56:37.090 --> 00:56:39.130
  • WHICH WE DON'T DO.
  • 00:56:39.150 --> 00:56:42.190
  • WE TEND TO ONLY WANT TO CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS WHEN
  • 00:56:42.210 --> 00:56:44.210
  • WE'RE HAVING A GOOD DAY, AND WE SHOULD WANT TO CELEBRATE
  • 00:56:44.230 --> 00:56:47.020
  • IT THE MOST WHEN WE'RE HAVING STRUGGLES.
  • 00:56:47.040 --> 00:56:49.080
  • - THAT WAS ONLY 26 SECONDS. YOU NEED TO FILL 90.
  • 00:56:49.100 --> 00:56:51.270
  • - AND SONGS, THERE ARE SONGS.
  • 00:56:51.290 --> 00:56:53.260
  • - AND THERE ARE SONGS AND SOME DANCING, BUT THEY DON'T

  • HAVE LEGS, SO IT'S AWKWARD.
  • 00:56:56.170 --> 00:56:58.010
  • - IT'S HOPPING.
  • 00:56:58.030 --> 00:56:59.190
  • - AND WHEN THEY CLAP IN THE AUDIENCE...
  • 00:56:59.210 --> 00:57:00.240
  • - RHYTHMIC HOPPING.
  • 00:57:00.260 --> 00:57:02.020
  • YEAH, WE TRY NOT TO NOTICE.
  • 00:57:02.040 --> 00:57:03.120
  • THE CLAPPING HAS ALWAYS BEEN AN ISSUE.
  • 00:57:03.140 --> 00:57:04.190
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:57:04.210 --> 00:57:06.100
  • - THEY JUST SIT THERE AND KIND OF [BOUNCING]
  • 00:57:06.120 --> 00:57:09.130
  • - BUT THEY QUESTION IT THEMSELVES, TOO.
  • 00:57:09.150 --> 00:57:11.020
  • HOW ARE WE CLAPPING?
  • 00:57:11.040 --> 00:57:12.200
