Surprised this topic hasn't been made yet.
First released in 1993, VeggieTales was an attempt to answer the age-old question: Will children be more likely to understand Christian values if they're taught by anthropomorphized fruits and vegetables?
I assume they succeeded.
Characterized by its humorous dialogue, shout-outs and parodies of literature and film, and classic ability to shove musical numbers anywhere acceptable, VeggieTales was a hit (I think.) I was surprised to find that Some people are VeggieTales G1ers just like me, and if you are one, then here's a place to discuss what made it awesome and how the new series is inferior in every way. (Or if you're a VeggieTales G2er you can explain why it isn't so bad.)
(Also try to keep religious discussion to a minimum, there's a lot of other stuff about VeggieTales that you can talk about besides what we have learned)
