In Christian retail stores Saturday, March 5 and everywhere March 8, VeggieTales: ‘Twas the Night Before Easter is garnering significant media attention in trade and consumer outlets far and wide. Crosswalk.com says, “’Twas the Night Before Easter contrasts the popular sentiment that ‘bigger is better’ with the gospel truth that Jesus’ sacrificial death and resurrection is our true source of hope. In this VeggieTales, the gospel message shines bright and clear.”

Examiner.com says, “Following in the VeggieTales tradition, VeggieTales: ‘Twas the Night Before Easter blends important lessons with laugh-out-loud funny moments…another must-have for the Veggie-fans of all ages.”

ChristianCinema.com adds, “Melinda Doolittle hits all the right notes as the newest vegetable in the crisper drawer. With their usual wit and pop culture references, VeggieTales is ‘eggsactly’ what the bunny ordered for Easter,” while CBA Retailers+Resources notes that “‘Twas the Night Before Easter focuses on helping others in need—and not forgetting the true meaning of Easter according to Mark 10:45…”

ON THE RADIO:

voiced by Melinda Doolittle. Doolittle’s distinct yet familiar vocals can be heard on “Up With Bunnies” and “When I Think About Easter.”

“The coolest thing about Cassie is that she’s so much like me...,” says Doolittle. “My very favorite moment is when Cassie is trying to sing the ‘Up With Bunnies’ song… Everybody is dressed up like bunnies. It’s just a big hot mess, but she’s really trying to make it work.”

As a special treat for Veggie fans, Big Idea introduces the all new character and singing sensation “Cassie Cassava” Doolittle adds, “I love the way VeggieTales takes a story and in a very fun way lets you know the right thing to do. I love a chocolate bunny any day, but I’ve been a part of being able to make a difference and that is more rewarding than any chocolate bunny I’ve ever had.”
