In this set of colorful animated videos from Hanna-Barbera Productions, Bible stories for children are told in an entertaining way. Resenting their younger brother, Joseph, and envious about his "coat of many colors," the older brothers sell him into slavery in Egypt. Joseph does best to adapt to dire situations - first working as a household servant, later being held in prison, and eventually earning the trust of the powerful Pharaoh and acting as his counselor. When Joseph's prediction of a seven-year famine turns out to be true, he is made the governor of the land of Canaan where his brothers live - and suddenly their fates are in his hands. Celebrity voices include Barry Bostwick as Joseph and William Schallert as Jacob.
