History of The Bibleman Adventure
"Bibleman" has been around for more than two decades, with the characters and looks changing a bit over time, but as the official site proclaims, the mission has always been to "share God’s Word and teach children to rely on Him at all times."
Even the show's title has changed a bit (it started as "The Bibleman Show: and later became "The Bibleman Adventure"), but perhaps the biggest element that changed is that the show was originally a live-action program when it emerged in the mid-1990s.
Later, it became a cartoon, which is what's streaming on Pure Flix!
Bibleman: The Characters
So, you're probably curious about the characters in "Bibleman." Let's briefly explore.
First, there's Bibleman, who is the star of the show bringing kids animated lessons from the Bible. His weapon of choice? The Word of God, of course. As we continue to explore the Bibleman adventure, we have to also mention Biblegirl, who is set on protecting kids from God's enemies.
But the team doesn't end there, as there's also Cypher and Melody, additional heroes who help Bibleman and Biblegirl on their mission to spread the gospel to kids! Read more about the heroic characters here.
You might also be familiar with the villains, which include: Crusher, Mayor of Maybe, Ronin of Wrong, Baroness, Dr. Fear, Luxor Spawndroth, and Master of Mean. We won't get into each of their qualities, though you can check them out for yourself.
Dr. Fear, for instance, lives up to his name in that his goal is to spark worry and fear in children and the adults they love.
