Hermie and Friends: Who is in Charge Anyway?


Read the Back:


When Freddie hears Hailey and Bailey ask their mother what’s special about fleas, he thinks it’s time to have a talk with God.

Freddie is reminded that Hermie and Flow and Buzby and Webster and even Antonio all had to learn important lessons before their special talents were put to use. Freddie learns that God didn’t make anybody by accident, and that he’s not finished with us yet.

Contains newly animated flashbacks of key garden characters in their youth…along with pivotal scenes from classic episodes.

Lesson is based on Psalm 90:16 “Show your servants the wonderful things you do; show your greatness to their children”.

My Thoughts:

When first given the opportunity to review this DVD for Thomas Nelson I was quite excited. I hadn’t yet seen a Hermie & Friends movie. When I saw that it was associated with Max Lucado I thought that it would be great. Unfortunately, I found this DVD to be rather dull. Granted I’m almost 30, but my 2 yr. old lost interest in it within the first 5 min. and she can often times sit through entire feature length films. The characters were forgettable and the animation wasn’t the greatest. The message (God has a purpose and plan for everyone) was appropriate for the age level, but if my child won’t watch it then the message won’t get across. I would forgo purchasing this DVD…instead, visit your local library to borrow it.
