Storyteller Cafe is an award-winning, computer animated, gospel series for children. The stars of the show include such creatively silly characters as; Tina (JoEllen Anklam) the tutu wearing elephant, Beans (Kris Metzgar) the purple bear and Pete (Rick Rumble) the WWII poilot. After the doors of the Storyteller Cafe close for the evening, all of the toys used as decoration in the cafe come to life and; using a laptop, tell stories from "the big book" (the bible). The environments in this series are unique; details about how places really looked and how people actually lived in biblical times are included. An example of one episode is "The Gift", which tells the story of the birth of Jesus and encourages the watcher to celebrate the life of Jesus not just on Christmas, but every day. Storyteller Cafe is created and directed by Angela Ward Costello and produced for children by CBN animation.
