The Background of Bibleman
The company B&H Kids is supporting the release of the new Bibleman: The Animated Adventures. A new logo, character designs and products of the series have been created for the enjoyment of kids as well as learning tools about God. B&H Kids have great plans for Bibleman and plan to not only release DVDs but figures, books, block sets and the famous sword used by Bibleman himself.
Bibleman began in 1995 thanks to the Pamplin Entertainment company. Originally it was thought as a live-action series joined with books and toys. Later on the Bibleman brand was given to Thomas Nelson who in their hands produced more live-action content. Finally the brand was sold to B&H Kids in 2013. B&H thought of a way to bring back the classic character but with a new approach. The new characters pay tribute to the live-action original show but have a new look which will interest the young generations but also the adults who grew up watching the original Bibleman. The Bibleman name has impacted thousands and thousands of children’s lives for more than twenty years as Willie Aames and Robert Schlipp wore the suit of Bibleman and helped fight bad characters. Now with the new designs and ideas shown in Bibleman: The Animated Adventures the hope for B7H Kids and all involved in its production is to reach even more kids around the U.S. and the world.
Partnering with B&H Publishing Group on the new Bibleman: The Animated Adventures is P23 Entertainment Inc. Both produced 26 episodes and hope to continue producing this memorable series. For Cliff McDowell, P23 Entertainment’s president, producing Bibleman: The Animated Adventures was an experience he longed for.
To reimagine the image of the iconic Bibleman was something the company wanted to for almost a decade. To transform it to animation was the right decision to make in regards in how animation is what kids nowadays are most watching. And it being in animation will help the ministry continue on for many generations since animation is ageless, it will only continue to get better.
In this day and age children love heroes but there’s no superhero who will reach kids with the important message of Jesus as Bibleman shown in Bibleman: Melting the Master of Mean. Nowadays a lot can be done with animation than with a live-action show. Many more things can be designed for the world Bibleman lives in. Bring back some memorable villains and create new ones, new instruments, new sets. The hope is that kids will enjoy and learn about God from the new reimagined Bibleman animated series. A series children can watch but also one that parents can sit down with their kids and enjoy as well.
The Bibleman live-action series
The Bibleman series from 1995 till 2011 was live-action and was recorded with a live studio audience and it ran for about 60 minutes. The show would also include sword training for kids and special movements for the Bibleman song “Word of God”.
In the episode “Combating the Commandant of Confusion” of Bibleman: PowerSource, the bad guy Commandant of Confusion and his accomplice Chaos try to steal a secret armament by interrupting the Bible Adventure Training Academy. That secret armament is meant to help Bibleman and the Bibleteam to put on the armor of the Lord. The message of this specific episode is simple yet powerful. While mentioning Scripture, they give the example to children to never fight other but only the Satan and his evil. A very important message that children need to hear about. The show being live makes the show have less special effects as much were accustomed to in that moment but the show is very well thought of and a very great resource for kids to watch and learn about God and life.
In the case of the episode “Divided We Fall” of Bibleman Genesis we have another lesson. The villain Wacky Protester wants to enter the live transmission of the most popular children’s show. He utilizes his tech toy called I.N.S.E.C.T. to get the Bibleteam out of his way and to make incorrect footage that shows the Bibleteam at odds with each other. The group of Bibleman, Biblegirl and Cypher manage to put on the armor of the Lord and defeat Wacky Protester. The episode is focused on the Scripture located in Matthew 12:25 which says, “A house divided can not stand”. The episode encourages children to love others through Jesus’ love.
