A big thanks to :iconwaffle-with-big-arms: and :iconjohnmarkee1995: for the information.

Leave your thoughts and opinions in the comments. I personally am not totally pleased with how they look. I don't think there's anything wrong with how they looked before. In fact I'm kind of brokenhearted. Guess I'll have to get over it. After all, it is just a cartoon.

Leave your opinions in the comments below. And remember to be RESPECTFUL of other people's opinions. Whether you agree with them or not.

UPDATE: Joe Spadaford had this to say to our friend :iconjohnmarkee1995: about the redesigns. I'll post his quote here so you won't have to keep scrolling down to find it.

" ...trust me... Once you see these guys moving you will wish they had always looked like this. The act is much more like how the old storyboards. all the characters can now fully act. you don't know how much entertainment value you were missing out on just due to the old rigs. Trust me I worked on those shows for 9 years.... I loved those old characters... These characters are a huge leap forward in a good way.

"BTW this is not Dreamworks trying to make them 'their' veggietales. This is the veggietales, the creatives, all wanted to see on screen. all the old 2d boards looked like this basically. the fact that these Riggs were 20 years old was a HUGE problem. 20 years ago 3d show characters did not have to act as well as they do now. If the standard of acting was not raised VT would have looked older and older to the new young audience. remember first and foremost veggietales is for little kids. It has to evolve with the standards even a 3 year old expects or they will quickly fall into the dollar bin. The main thing you should have liked most about veggietales is not gone. The Christian element. That god made you special and loves you very much. If we had lost that aspect of our show then I would really worry. The new veggie show is still very much like old shows at its heart. It's just an update."

"If you look a t a still of Hogarth from the iron giant. Once he moves he it one of the coolest cartoon kids of all time. The only people who can hate this are the people who have not yet seen the animatics or dailies. I have seen those things. the new stuff is better. It just is."

Those redesign looks are okay, but I love the old style like in previous episodes of Veggie Tales which I prefer it.

Here are some replies I got from Joe Spadaford on my recent Facebook post regarding the redesigns -

Joe: John trust me... Once you see these guys moving you will wish they had always looked like this.

Understandable. I told Joe that I would try and go into "Veggie Tales in the House" with an open mind taking what he (someone who obviously had a hand in the redesigns) into mind. With that said, I'm also still taking into mind how Phil thought of them which was clearly unenthusiastic from what I remember.

I HOPE THE NEW SERIES DOESN'T TAKE AWAY THE IMPORTANT STUFF FOUND IN THE ORIGINAL(I am looking forward toward this, although I am VERY WORRIED about Deamworks taking out the bible stories, and lessons, and even the "God Made you special, and He loves you very much" catchphrase as well!!!!!)

Well you're right. What they teach is more important than how they look. I'm also hoping for CLEAN humor.

WHAAAAAAAAAAAAT.........            HAVE...   YOU....      DONE...... DreamWorks!? First I have to sit through some poor newer episodes (like Sweatpea, MacLarry, ect) and now THIS!? And I was so looking forward to seeing a new "VeggieTales" film, especially with DreamWorks involved since they are making really good films....  Sigh... another peice of childhood given a hard kick... :( Well, it could be worse...

Absolutely dreadful! Rage  Those are the worst designs I've ever seen in my life! They're even worse than the character designs on The Looney Tunes Show and not to mention that they look very unconvincing and more puppet-like, which disturbs me very greatly.

I absolutely hate it. I wish they'd have kept them the same as the original. I was hoping they'd have just added colors to the eyes. They are more cutesy wootsy and less original.

I agree that there really was no reason for the redesigns to begin with since there was nothing wrong with the original designs that have been used for more than 20 years.

I will admit however, that Bob & Larry actually don't look that bad at least compared to the 2D versions of them from a few weeks ago. I don't really like Jerry's design too much because there's something about the way his teeth and stem are that's rather off. I also don't really like the addition of eyebrows or having their eyes separated from each other.

Same here about Jerry. I love Jerry Gourd's old origina look and he was beautiful to me. In his new redesign look, he looks very neutral.

I Don't really mind those changes, I love their eyebrows!!!!
(I'm REALLY not flaming, I'm just stating my opinion, SO PLEASE DON'T TAKE IT THE WRONG WAY!!!!!!)
