The Wonderful Wizard of Ha's

*Veggie Tales story of the prodigal son.
*Instead of Dorothy, there's Darby.
*Instead of Toto, there's Tutu (a dog that looks suspiciously like a pig)
*Instead of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow", there's "Somewhere Beyond the Barn"
*Instead of Munchkins, there's Munchies from Munchie Land (played by the peas)
*Glenda is played by Madame Blueberry.
*Instead of dropping a house on a wicked witch, Darby's trailer drops on a monster truck, the Munchie Muncher.
*Instead of following the yellow brick road, he follows Old Yellow McToad.
*Instead of Lions, Tigers, and Bears, there's Ohioans (people from Ohio) , fifers (men who played the fife in combat), and mares (female horses).
*Instead of a field of poppies, there is a field of puppies.
*Instead of the Emerald City, Darby travels to the Land of Ha's, the happiest place on earth. With food and rides and games galore!
*And all along the way, there are songs similar to songs from the Wizard of Oz. And then there's other songs just for the fun of it. For instance, the Munchies sing a song "His name is Darby, and he's our hero. I like my barbie, but I'm no weirdo. Like Dana Carvey, Robert De Nero." And, of course, a silly song thrown into the middle!

Anyway, the movie made me LAUGH OUT LOUD. I would recommend it to kids of all ages!
I've also borrowed "Moe and the Big Exit" and "Sheerluck Holmes and the Golden Ruler". If they are any good, I'll let you know!
