Question: Specks and logs (do not judge) - looking for a short video

We're getting ready to teach this lesson on specks and logs (do not judge) in our Wednesday night program as part of a unit on Jesus' teachings.

Years ago I was in a continuing education class and we used a short video that was sooo good. It was called "Log Eye" (I think) and had these two characters -- one was wearing glasses with a big stuffed log coming out of one lens. Of course he was focused on the speck in the other character's eye. And they used the song from the old TV show Rawhide to have a song called Log Eye. I have tried and tried to find this video to no avail! Anyone know what I'm talking about?

Or have an alternate short video that could be used?

Jesus StoriesHaven't seen this video but I'm wondering if it's "The Log & The Speck" on the DVD - "Jesus Stories" #501033D Vision Video.  It also has a free Guide you can download as well, look at the menu tab under "Resources" - (Description-Reviews-Resources).

When I was surfing the net it said it mentioned on another site they are done by storyteller Doug Berky.  Through an ingenious combination of masks, mine, and the creative use of props storyteller Doug Berky breathes new life into the gospels.

This sounds like the sort of thing the Fish eyes guys (Ted and Lee) would do, but I don't see it listed. 

However, I ordered the DVDs last week for another story, so I will double check when it arrives. 

Yes Amy it really does sound like them. I have a bunch of old Fish Eyes VHS tapes, but this story isn't on there. It was sooo great... I really wish I could find it.

I found this short cartoon video that we might to use in our large group setting where we tell the story. I also ordered the video Luanne mentioned above...

We have very limited time on Wednesday nights, so everything needs to be short.

I also found this cooking object lesson where the kids make "eyes" using vanilla wafers with sprinkles for specks and add a pretzel stick for the log. Remove the pretzel before eating!

Might be fun...
