Best religious cartoon I've ever seen



My lovely bride-to-be showed me this series of cartoons from Brown Bag Films today. It was very humorous and VERY well done. Why can't religious media, especially Catholic media, look like this?

The premise, according to Brown Bag, is that Irish children in the 1960s were recorded telling Bible stories, and they put these voices to animation, giving it an aged, sepia-tone look. It comes across as VERY well done, very professional, and very entertaining.

You don't see too many things in Catholic media that have that top-notch quality that you'd see from secular studios. Catholicvote.org and Catholic TV do some great stuff, and The Catholic Channel on Sirius XM provides great entertainment, but other than that, the pickings seem rather small.

I know that Brown Bag isn't technically a "Christian" media group. They might have faith, but they aren't marketed specifically as a "Christian" company, just a film company that was nominated for an Oscar for a damn good religious cartoon. Still, it's good to see religious content that doesn't make you cringe at it's low-grade quality
