You'll also enjoy the story, "The Asparagus of La Mancha." Don Quixote (Archibald Asparagus) is the owner of a prosperous little Cafe called La Mancha. His good friend Poncho (Mr. Lunt) works with him, but when a big, popular chain restaurant moves in across the street, their little cafe hits hard times. But Poncho sticks by Don, who learns that true friends do what's best for each other, no matter how difficult that may be. And, in true silly style, Larry sings a silly song about gated communities.

Ben UmnusWisconsinAge: 18-24Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5October 29, 2012Ben UmnusWisconsinAge: 18-24Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5While waiting for The League of Extraordinary Vegetables to be released, I was interested in finding more titles to watch from the people of Big Idea. One in particular, gave me some interest because I have enjoyed some of the Sherlock Holmes stories, and I know when Veggietales makes a remake of a story they tend to do it very well. Yes I wanted to watch Sheerluck Holmes and the Golden Ruler, because of the story element, and I was also curious what they had to say about friendship_ Sheerluck Holmes and the Golden Ruler is actually two separate stories contained within one DVD feature.
The first story is called: The Asparagus of La Mancha which is a spin-off of the literary classic Don Quixote De La Mancha, (literary classic worth checking out by the way) in that it involves Don a dreaming Asparagus and Mr. Lunt who plays his sidekick Pancho, a spin-off of Sancho Panza. Don and Pancho together own a restaurant called "La Mancha", which was popular until a competitor called "The Food Factory" moves in next door and starts stealing their business. When business is waning Don gets desperate due to the influence of his strange dreams, while Pancho is being tempted to leave his friend and work for the Food Factory. The second story, which is Sheerluck Holmes, concerns Sheerluck Holmes and Dr. Watson; played by Larry and Bob. They are assigned a huge case involving the theft of a treasure contained within the Palace. But there is more to the story than the mere mystery of who and how, this also is a commentary on how to not be a good friend. What lesson does Sheerluck Holmes need to learn in order to not only find the Golden Ruler, but also keep his friendship with Dr. Watson?
In all honesty, though Sheerluck Holmes was a decent story, I actually liked The Asparagus of La Mancha better between the two tales. For some reason there just seemed to be more detail to The Asparagus of La Mancha plotwise, and it provided a deeper message to me. Both stories are good about talking about how to be a good friend, both at times were funny, the silly song: The Gated Community was a goofy barbershop quartet, and I like their overall theological message. Yes I do give this movie a strong recommendation, it's worth checking out if you haven't heard about it yet.
