CHERUB WINGS is one of the more extraordinary video series coming from the entertainment media, and Fox Home Entertainment is distributing it. In fact, it has the big 20th Century Fox logo right on its cover, and yet these wonderful, well-animated children’s series talks freely about Jesus, his plan for salvation, his miracles, and doing what Jesus would do. It does all this in a very clever, entertaining way, with some of the best songs in children’s videos. It is aimed at little ones, but any big one will enjoy it, too.
The episode MOLDY GOLDY starts out with two little cherubs playing soccer. When the ball bursts, one cherub wants to throw it away. The other tells the story of Jesus feeding the 5,000 with two small loaves of bread and a couple of fish, and the fact that seven basketfuls were collected afterwards! This miracle, which is quite extraordinary, helps the little cherub understand that they shouldn’t waste the soccer ball. Then, in an entertaining way, the program proceeds to explore the topics of selfishness, greed, pride, and envy, and concludes in a winsome, loveable, wonderful way.
Packed with great songs, CHERUB WINGS tells little ones that we should do what Jesus would do: be humble, give, care, serve, and love.
This is quite an extraordinary series to come from 20th Century Fox. MOVIEGUIDE® is happy to commend them, wholeheartedly.
