What did I think?
It’s a Meaningful Life, is a wonderful episode of the famed Christian TV series, VeggieTales.
For starters, the episode was visually engaging with the animators having done a wonderful job. The little town of Rockwell is a real cute place that kids are sure to relate to and like.
Stewart (Larry the Cucumber), is having doubts about if he is doing well enough for his family by living and working in his small town. The journey he goes on is an exciting and creative one; in which he makes some realizations that are helpful for people of all ages.
I’m very impressed by the creator’s clean sense of humor. The children won’t get all of the humor, but the adults will get a good chuckle out of it.
The story will hit everybody in a different way, but there are lessons to learn for both kids and adults. I’d highly recommend you watch this episode.

You can watch the trailer on Youtube.
You can buy It’s a Meaninful Life, on VeggieTales’ website.
