The second installment in the new LarryBoy series continues the adventures of the caped crusader as he comes
head to head with a new villain - The Alchemist! This time around, his nemesis brings along a formidable sidekick --
his mother! I thought, once again, this was a great lesson for children. Leggo My Ego! shows the dangers
of tearing others down to build themselves up. Growing up I learned this lesson to be a true one that runs rampant
all through adolescence. In Leggo... the Alchemist uses Larryboy's pride to tear down the esteem of those
surrounding him in Bumblyburg. In the original VeggieTales series, the lessons and scriptures used to be
presented to the viewer through Bob, Larry, and their computer Qwerty. In LarryBoy, the wise
professor Bok Choy, from the Super-hero 101 class that LarryBoy attends, is the source of the hero's guidance as
Bok reads scriptural advice from the class's handbook.
Leggo My Ego! was a worthy follow-up to the debut episode, but I couldn't help thinking it wasn't
nearly as good. That is not to say I didn't enjoy it. That's hardly the fact! But the Alchemist & Mother Pearl just weren't
as interesting to watch as Angry Alvin or the inanimate Lampy. Citizen Larry and his coworkers at The Daily Bumble
play a much smaller role as well leaving the focus on Larrboy. Maybe I didn't like how Larryboy really didn't have much
of a super-hero personality this time around (which was part of the point), and he was clueless to what Alchemist's
scheming. But the premise was perfect to prove the point the story was trying to make.
So if you've got a little 'veggie head' at home who can't get enough of these lovable characters, or if you
know someone who loves cartoons like Power Puff Girls or Samurai Jack, Larryboy: The Cartoon Adventures
are perfect for your little aspiring super-hero!
