Blog/Video: Veggie Tales taught my son perseverance

Cartoons taught my son perseverance. When he was 7, he was a Tiger scout. During one of their meetings, they had a crab walk race. Since he was doing it right, he trailed the pack. It became so bad that everyone else had crossed the finish line. But he kept on. The other parents were so impressed that they gave him a standing ovation as he struggled to the very end. When I asked him what made he hang on, he said that he recalled the Veggie Tale story about perseverance. (See below.)

St. John Bosco would have used this too if was around in the 1800s.  He used all the media available then e.g.  theater, acrobatics, juggling, drama, operettas, stories, songs and billboards stating "God sees you."

Video Description:  Scallion (Larry the Cucumber) challenges Apollo Gourd for the World Veggie-Weight Title!

Can Scallion stick with it and finish the match? Can he keep his eye on the Tiger Bike awarded to the champion? In this zany tale of perseverance, The Italian Scallion learns that when you finish what you start, you always come out the winner!
