… and make major motion pictures.
Do you love The Pirates Who Don’t Do Anything the way that I do? Er, I mean, the way that my kids do? We used to have a Veggie Tunes CD that we listened to in the car over and over and over again. Listening to kiddie music incessantly has been clinically shown to lead to brain atrophy in even the most resilient of parents, but I’ve always had a soft spot for Veggie Tales music.
Anyway, the Pirates Who Don’t Do Anything has long been our favorite Veggie Tales song. I don’t know why. Perhaps because it has always seemed hilarious to me to hear my kids belt out the refrain of “And I’ve never been to Boston in the Faaaaaaaaall!” (It was funnier when we still lived near Boston, and they had, in fact, been to Boston in the Fall. But—recalling some of the other lyrics, here—they really haven’t ever plucked a rooster or swabbed a poop deck. And trust me, they are just as lazy as the Pirates Who Don’t Do Anything.)
In short: We love the Pirates. They don’t do anything! Also, they are vegetables! What’s not to love?
Well, if you’re a fellow Veggie Tales fan, you’ll be thrilled to know that The Pirates Who Don’t Do Anything are going to be starring in their very own movie. My children think they are too old for Veggie Tales, these days, but when this movie opens in January we are going to see it. Because I want to. And they will love it. Because I said so. Also because we are powerless against a hook like this:
From the creators of 2002′s wildly successful Jonah—A VeggieTales Movie comes a new story of heroism in the beloved VeggieTales’ world, The Pirates Who Don’t Do Anything. Now, we follow the comic misadventures of three animated veggie pals who reluctantly set sail for adventure and discover that real heroes don’t have to be tall, strong, handsome… or even human.
