Got Kids? Veggie Tales Creator Phil Vischer Launches JellyTelly.Com

While I’ve always enjoyed the humour in Veggie Tales, I became a fan of Phil Vischer after reading his book, Me, Myself and Bob; which chronicles the ups and downs of trying to build a kidvid empire, only to watch it collapse; and the lessons God has taught him throughout the process.

So after getting this as an e-mail this morning; I wanted to pass it on.  Don’t miss the enormity of the task they’re taking on here: 20 minutes of fresh content DAILY delivered to your computer.



Dear FFP (friends and fans of Phil!) …

We’ve launched!  After three years of work, we just launched JellyTelly – our new kids “mini-network” – at!

Every day on JellyTelly kids can watch 20 minutes of “mini” TV shows and play online games while learning about the Bible and their faith.  Biblical illiteracy is a huge problem in the church, and we think we can help address it in the same way Sesame Street tackled basic literacy back in the 60s and 70s.

phil-vischerBeyond that, by collaborating with other Christian producers we are planting the seed for what could become an alternative to Nickelodeon® and the Disney Channel® – a tiny kids network that can help raise the next generation of Christians while launching the next generation of Christian storytellers.  It’s an exciting time – the most fun I’ve had since we launched VeggieTales® out of a spare bedroom way back in 1993!

To hear more about the mission of JellyTelly, watch this video.  To see a sample of our programming and meet Buck Denver, Clive & Ian, the Bentley Brothers, Dr. Schniffenhowzen, Agnes & Winnefred, and Quacky the Duck, watch this clip.

We’ve got a great opportunity to launch the next phase of Christian kids media, and you can be a part of it.  Check it out at!
