Dove Review

These guys, Charles and Bill, know how to have fun. Their zany personalities make for a delightful DVD which kids and the young in heart will thoroughly enjoy. There are three DVDs with 12 episodes, the last two on the third disc being a bit longer than the other episodes. Charles and Bill teach important moral lessons from the Bible and they do it in their larger-than-life personas.

Volume one deals with the important themes of patience, honesty, encouragement, courage and compassion. Volume two of the series deals with topics such as gentleness, kindness, selflessness, perseverance and forgiveness. Finally, volume three deals with contentment, and rules, rules, rules!

The two brothers have a good time on screen and end each episode by singing a “good-bye” song and they always briefly shake their rears at the screen for the “bye” part of the song! Other characters include Cranky, a talking cactus, and Face, a talking clock. Kids will enjoy scenes such as the one in which Charles makes a helmet to fight against a “monster” (actually, a very “small” monster as it turns out). This is really a wholesome DVD which features important life lessons and biblical texts as well as the reminder that “Jesus loves you!” We gladly recommend it for all ages. This one might convince you that you don’t have to be sane to have a good time!
