All Rise...

Judge David Johnson built himself an Arky, Arky.

The Charge


The Case

Alright, this one is geared toward a very specific audience, namely Sunday School teachers and Christian parents with young kids. The DVD is essentially a string of Sunday School songs, partnered with rudimentary animation, and belted out by a pile of kids. It's all harmless, Godly fun, and good for what it wants to do—i.e. give some kids cartoons and words to go with their favorite Bible songs. This is actually a two-disc set, with one being the DVD and the other an audio CD. Here's what you'll find on the DVD as far as a playlist:

• "Rise and Shine (Arky, Arky)"
• "Days of Creation"
• "Joshua Fought the Battle of Jericho"
• "Isaiah 52:9"
• "Only a Boy Name David"
• "Who Did (Swallow Jonah)"
• "God Made Me"
• "Zacchaeus"
• "Father Abraham"
• "The Wise Man and the Foolish Man"
• "Days of the Week Prayer"
• "Dare to Be a Daniel"
• "Peter, James and John in a Sailboat"
• (Note: This last song does not end with "Those aren't buoys!")

"Isaiah 52:9," "God Made Me," and "Days of the Week Prayer" aren't songs, but brief animated interludes, running about 30 seconds or so.

Now, for the CD:

• "This is My Commandment"
• "Joshua Fought the Battle of Jericho"
• "Days of Creation"
• "Jacob's Ladder"
• "Rise and Shine (Arky, Arky)"
• "Only a Boy Named David"
• "Jesus Loves the Little Children"
• "Who Did (Swallow Jonah)"
• "Zacchaeus"
• "I'm in the Lord's Army"
• "Father Abraham"
• "Dare to be a Daniel"
• "Jesus Loves Me"
• "The Wise Man and the Foolish Man"
• "Peter, James and John in a Sailboat"

Overall, it's a good value for folks looking for this kind of thing. Again, pretty narrow demographic, but the animation is enjoyable to look at, the songs are children's church classics, and the ability to play all the tunes in a karaoke format could prove invaluable for the burned-out Sunday School teacher.
