We are pleased to bring you The Friar Series- kid-tested, parent approved, and simply the best children's programming we've found in along time. Each episode finds Father John, the Friar, receiving a visit from his perky puppet pals, Renata the girl, Timothy the mouse and Leopold the frog. He enjoys their company and likes it when they share their childhood concerns and ask questions about their faith. They in turn look forward to the animated stories and songs the Friar uses to answer to their questions. After choosing a parable that corresponds to their question of the day, Father explains it using an engaging combination of heart-warming, live-action puppetry, delightful animation and memorable songs. To further illustrate each lesson, he shares the story of a saint who embodies the particular virtues taught in that parable.
