Tyndale Entertainment and TLC Entertainment of Studio City, California, are launching the Kids' Ten Commandments Project, a major initiative to bring God's commandments to the children of the world in a fresh and entertaining way. Using dramatic 2-D and 3-D animation created by top animators from projects at Disney, DreamWorks, Fox, and other leading animation studios, the series features major Hollywood talent, including Jodi Benson, Peter Strauss, Tim Curry, John Schneider, Paul Winfield, and Tom Bosley. Each video also includes original songs written by Pamela Phillips Oland and a dramatic underscore by James Covell.
The second episode in the series, "A Day in the Strife, " is based on commandments three and four x2014; x201C;Do not misuse the name of the Lord your God x201D; and x201C;Remember to observe the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. x201D; When Seth's mom, Leila, is called away, snarly old Jeshanah is asked to take care of Seth. Not the wisest choice, since Jeshanah swears (conveniently an animal noise or sound covers the actual words) and proudly sings of his warped sense of values. Plus, Jeshanah makes Seth and all the animals work themselves to the bone on the Sabbath. Thankfully, Moses and Seth's mom arrive in time to set Jeshanah straight.
