“Episode 1: The Sun”: On the first day of class with their new teacher, the students take to the desert in search of a rare, ancient artifact. Following this mysterious tool through the desert, the owls begin to discover ways in which the sun is like God, and they discuss the ways in which the Creator of the Universe can be known through his creations.
“Episode 2: The Seed”: While visiting Yellingstone National Park with Professor Owlester, the students are on a quest to discover what makes seeds grow. Following an exciting scavenger hunt and making use of some helpful seeds, the owls discover that their faith can grow when properly nourished and cared for, just like the seeds!
“Episode 3: The Water”: While on a quest to hunt down the foundation of life, the owls have to band together to discover this secret destination. In so doing, they also learn about ways in which God, the creator of all things, is like water.
“Owlegories: The Sun, The Seed, and The Water” is a wonderful DVD — a “gospel-centered animated series for kids,” as described in the opening sequence. It features delightful music and characters, such as Violet, Gus, Joey, Twitch, Nora and the Professor. This first volume features three episodes, which are titled “The Sun,” “The Seed,” and “The Word.” In “The Sun,” the students learn three ways that the sun is like God, which is that they have power, light paths, and give life. Characters in the series are enjoyable, especially Joey, who, when called during roll call, answers, “Yo!” instead of “Present.” Dr. Tony Evans appears after the episode and talks about Jesus being the light of the world, according to John 8, and the Son of God.
In episode two, “The Seed,” the class of young owls continue to study in Theowlogy 101. They deal with a tricky villain named Devlin, who has an evil-looking mustache. Seeds need water, the sun, and good soil to properly grow, just as we need God’s word, prayer, and fellowship. At the end of the episode, Jen Wilkin, author, talks about the seed and soil. In episode three, “The Water,” Devlin now wears an eye patch to look like a pirate, but circumstances don’t work out well when he forgets and puts an eye patch on both eyes. Devlin tries to foul up the young owls’ journey, but Vincent Van Goat helps out. The owls learn that, like water, God’s love is endless, pure and satisfying. Pastor Matt Chandler speaks briefly at the end of the episode about dirt and sin and how water is like God.
