EPISODE 10: ABIDING IN CHRIST
Theo explains this difficult Christian concept by using Paul as an illustration. The two mice, Belfry & Luther, are getting annoy because one is mimicking the other. Theo uses there behavior to teach through ‘Shoebox Bible Theatre’: if we want to be like Jesus, we must abide in Him.
EPISODE 11: LIGHT UNTO MY PATH
It’s dark and Belfry & Luther are lost in the woods without a touch! Theo saves them and teaches them we are lost in the world with the lamp God has given us – the Bible. Through the story of the young King Josiah, children will see how Israel was lost until the King decided to follow the Holy Scripture in this episodes ‘Shoebox Bible Theatre.
EPISODE 12: WHAT IS THE CHURCH?
Belfry & Luther have started a club. They make rules, secret handshakes and goofy hats, telling Theo he is not allowed to join. But Theo uses it to teach children about how we should see Church. We shouldn’t see it as a place only people who look, talk and think the same be apart of. As the Body of Christ, everyone is welcome and we all become one together.

HOW MANY THEO DVD's are in the series ( Each one ??) Thank you
Narration: “Teaching children God’s Word isn’t always as easy as it seems. The Theo animated series was created to help parents and teach give children a basic understanding of their Christian faith.”
“Whitestone Media would like to introduce you to their newest volume – Theo, God’s Truth: Home Edition. This volume provides three new lessons: ‘Abiding in Christ’, ‘Light Unto My Path’ and ‘What is the Church?’ Plus our bonus lesson, the ‘Good News’. The Home edition includes lessons that helps parents, teachers and especially children will enjoy as they study God’s Word Together.”
“Here to tell you a bit more about the Home Edition is Theo’s creator, Mike Joens.”
Mike Joens: “Once a week, families will enjoy quality time together as they study the Bible. First of all they’ll watch a ten minute fully animated video in which Theo will introduce that nights topic from the Bible in a very entertaining manner.”
“After viewing the parent guide will parents with questions to help stimulate discussion with their children concerning the topic they just watched. There’s also fun, family activities, suggested scripture readings and a closing prayer to finish the Bible study. Nightly discussions are also included to help underscores each of the lessons during the week making them fun to learn and easy to remember.”
“I truly hope that Theo Home Edition will help you teach your children the many wonders found in God’s Word so they will but know what an awesome God we serve.”
Narration: “Enjoy a special time studying the Bible with your children today using the new Theo Home Edition as your guide.”
“Theo – God’s Truth is a beautifully animated children DVD that clearly communicates God’s Word to young children aged 4-8.”
“We all love cartoons, they have the power to entertain but also communicate a message. Theo, a loveable English professor who lives in a cottage, explains key Christian principles with his mice friends through animated storytelling and a healthy dose of humour. With the helpful parents guide you can turn the episodes into family Bible studies, learning together.”
“The three episodes in God’s Truth explain how we should abide in Christ, view the Bible and understand the Church. We think these episodes would work really well in Sunday Schools as well as family viewing at home.”
“The animation rates right up there with Disney and because the message is short and to the point, kids will love how simple it is to understand the concepts of salvation and faith.” – Anonymous Theo Fan.
“Since I wanted a DVD that would span different ages, I wanted something that could keep the little ones attention but not bore the older ones. This DVD did the trick!” – Janet L. Wisconsin.
“My kids love it!!!” - Alicia (about Theo: God’s Love).
“I know personally this DVD is a much better teacher than I could be. I am sure my future little ones will love this just as much as my two little ones I have right now.” – Amber MacDonald.
“My children, ages 10, 7, & 3 especially loved watching the funny antics of Belfry and Luther - the 2 mice … The kids were entertained, and I was even interested in watching the whole episode with them. I highly recommend checking out this new DVD series!” – Susan.
For those who have never experienced Theo and his charming charisma and down-to-earth personality, watch the trailer on this page. You’ll discover that these delightful cartoons are made for more than just entertainment: they’re for teaching children about the Christina Faith.
We think that these 10 minute episodes (with 3 episodes spread across 4 DVD’s so far) would work equally well in churches, Sunday Schools and your living rooms. And here’s why:
When adults here the word ‘children’s service’ they immediately switch off. “This bit isn’t for me” scrolls across their eyelids and they think about the week ahead instead of soaking in the service. Theo is a great way to engage both adults and children.
We all love cartoons. I can remember watching Loony Tunes and laughing hysterically at Wile E. Coyote chasing after Road Runner. Animated stories grab our attention, and they can tell powerful messages. That’s what Theo does – it explains Christian doctrine through cartoon.
All you need is a computer and a projector (which most churches have) and you’ve got 120 minutes of engaging and educational cartoon to show your church.
It’s becoming more and more popular in children’s ministry to use DVD’s in lessons. It’s a language children understand (and watch every day at home, sometimes hours on end!)
DVD’s produced by Christian media groups, like Whitestone Media (who make Theo), often make pre-made material that flow with their DVD. Connecting together Bible stories, fun activities and Bible study with engaging video has proved very successful in many Sunday Schools.
In fact, Whitestone Media have even made an iPhone/iPad app that connects technological minded kids with the series. Imagine that, you can show the DVD, reinforce it with the Bible and fun activities, then encourage your kids to download an app to continue learn through the week.
This Home Edition includes a Parent’s Guide. Inside parents will find everything they need to spark a family Bible study centred around each episode on the DVD. The guide includes:
• Discussion Starters
• Bible Readings
• Family Activities
• A Closing Prayer
• Nightly discussions
Purchasing a Theo DVD is a fantastic investment. If you’re a church leader you can pass it on to your Children’s Worker and use it in your family-sermons. If you’re a Children’s Worker you can see whether these episodes could work in your groups. And if you’re a parent you can fill your home with Christian cartoons (and pass it on to your Church Leader & Children’s Worker to spread Theo’s wonderful charm).
