Information about the Series:

Series Description: Friends and Heroes was a religious-based children's program helping to teach the stories and morals of the Old and New Testaments, that aired on TBN and on BBC TV. Set in around AD68 this show uses an innovative combination of 2D and 3D animation to tell the story of groups of Jewish and Christian children avoiding the persecution of the Roman Empire in the infant days of Christianity. While they strive to survive the bonds they make with their friends strengthen and their friendship develops. During their struggles they learn the stories of the Old and New Testaments. Also they learn that not only can the brave men in the stories be heroes but they can too. The show ran for 1 season (following which the production company went bankrupt), although three seasons are now available on DVD.
