Rack, Shack, and Benny: This film covers the topic of peer pressure and encourages viewers to stand up for their beliefs. Based on the story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, this film follows the lives of three vegetables (Rack, Shack, and Benny) who work in the Nezzer Chocolate Factory. All day long, the employees work hard to make the best chocolate bunnies around and try to please their boss, Mr. Nezzer. In celebration of selling their two millionth chocolate bunny, Mr. Nezzer announces to his employees that they may all eat as many bunnies as they want for the next thirty minutes.
As the other employees greedily partake of this, Shack convinces Rack and Benny to not gorge themselves on chocolate. He recognizes that their parents taught them better than this, and they both agree. When Nezzer comes to soak up his employees' appreciation, he finds that everyone is ill, except for Rack, Shack, and Benny. They are rewarded and made Junior Executives of Mr. Nezzer's Chocolate Factory. The next day, Mr. Nezzer informs them that he has constructed a 90 foot tall chocolate bunny that he intends to order everyone to bow down to.
Rack, Shack, and Benny realize that it would go against their belief in God to bow down to an idol, but they know that there are great consequences for not following Mr. Nezzer's orders. Whoever does not bow down to the idol will be thrown into the fiery furnace. The three vegetables decide that they cannot bow to an idol as they will only serve God. Mr. Nezzer offers them a second chance at bowing down, but they stand firm in their faith.
He immediately orders them to be thrown into the fiery furnace, and Rack, Shack, and Benny are taken there by a guard. As they are thrown into the furnace, a fourth figure appears. Mr. Nezzer is puzzled as there were only three men taken into the furnace. Suddenly, Rack, Shack, and Benny emerge from the flames, unscathed. They were saved by God himself, and Mr. Nezzer is overcome with emotion. He bows down to the one true God and begins a journey of faith. This film is an important lesson of withstanding peer pressure and doing what is right.
Gideon: Tuba Warrior: This film is based on the Bible story of Gideon and his army. It begins with a parade of floats, celebrating the victory of Gideon's army. As this parade is happening, Gideon stops everyone and informs them that he does not deserve the praise being lavished upon him. He explains how reluctant he was to fight this battle, and that he does not deserve the praise. He doubted that his small army would be able to conquer 30,000 excessively hairy pickles"ÌÒthe Midianites. It wasn't until an angel of the Lord appeared that he decided to go through with battle.
Gideon explains how he tried to get out of battle by bringing up his fear of the dark and trying to say that he wasn't a warrior. Finally, he put out a fleece and asked God to make the fleece wet and the ground dry as a sign that he must go into battle. He then asked for the opposite circumstances to happen, and when they did, he accepted his job. Gideon's army was further reduced, but they marched into battle anyway. Because God was watching over them, they were able to conquer the Midianites. This film contains important lessons about trusting in God.
