Industry insiders and reviewers are giving resounding accolades for the new CG animated series The Roach Approach, The Mane Event!

Bill Gibeons of DVD Talk, a DVD industry online magazine and radio show remarks, “That's why The Roach Approach is so wonderful. Combining the technically up-to-date dimension of CG, with good old-fashioned imaginative storytelling and values, creator Bruce Barry has come up with a winner. Carefully constructed, built around ideas that actually work instead of forcing themselves upon you, and filled with enough vision and vitality to make kids and adults happy, this is one of the best faith-based productions ever…. The whole concept, from the incredibly old Roach grandparents to the clever ways the metaphors for the original scripture stories are incorporated into the plot, gives off a certified sheen of professionalism. This is not just some hobby offered wholesale. This is a work of invention and a true labor of love.” http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/read.php?ID=17327

Mega online magazine and web portal Crosswalk.com's entertainment critic Annabelle Robertson comments, “The animation in this film is outstanding. Shadows fall across characters, cave walls and on the ground. Whiskers twitch; fur ruffles and the gold medallion of a hip-hopper bat named Fang swings as he finally flies – his lifelong dream. Rust mars an old grate, and as the animals walk by a puddle, we catch a brief glimpse of their reflections in the water. This is quality stuff, and while kids may not notice, parents definitely will. No wonder Fox Home Entertainment has picked up this little gem of a series. It's that good.” http://www.crosswalk.com/fun/movies/1347696.html

Family and entertainment rating organization, The Dove Foundation, gave The Roach Approach, The Mane Event! their best rating, 5 Dove seals. “Bruce and his team use just the right combination of ingredients to produce a wonderful, clever series that's going to become a family classic.” http://www.dove.org/news/uplink/hu0507.htm

The highly anticipated follow-up release to The Roach Approach, Don't Miss the Boat! is the story of Daniel in the Lions' Den, and features the voices of gospel superstars tobyMac and Nicole C. Mullen. Forefront Recording Artist and multiple Dove-winning tobyMac voices the character of “Fang,” a young bat who wants desperately to be cool, and Mullen, a Word Records artist and the 2005 Dove Award Female Vocalist of the Year, voices the character of a young lion cub “Miesha.” They are joined in The Mane Event! by Grammy and Dove-winning artist-songwriter Tommy Sims who plays “Saqqara”. All three artists contribute music to the animated movie's soundtrack.

The Roach Approach, The Mane Event! is distributed by Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment and to Christian retail through Word Music Distribution.
