VeggieTales: Silly Songs With Larry Review

by Melinda Hill

Silly Songs With Larry is a delight for the whole family. Unlike many children's albums that might make their grownups want to run screaming after a couple of listens, Silly Songs With Larry is clever, with aural treats that will be appreciated by adults as well as their kids. Silly Songs is taken directly from segments of the Veggie Tales cartoons by the same name. Hosted by Larry the Cucumber, they are songs with no moral attached. They're just, well, silly, and that's what makes them so great. "The Hairbrush Song" is Silly Songs at its best -- an operatic ode to Larry's hairbrush. With a line like "shocked and slightly embarrassed at the sight of Larry in a towel," what more could you want? "The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything" is another highlight, a joyful song about laziness and Larry, who just doesn't get it. "His Cheeseburger" is a '50s-style love song to a cheeseburger, and "Do the Moo Shoo" is a perfect, albeit far too short, '80-style rap song. The only songs parents might want to skip for sanity's sake are two of the bonus tracks: "Lost Puppies," which is grating and will make you want to rip out your speakers, and "Oh Santa!," which lacks the cleverness of their other songs. All in all, it's a great album for the whole family, and is sure to be played over and over (and over) by your kids.
