Welcome to Patch Parables!

Patch Parables was the first ever side-series after Spirit Science. It was created between Jordan and Vanessa Cuccia, who – in the fusion of their consciousness, imagined a series of fun, short, adorable little cartoons presenting old parables from a wide array of spiritual teachings from around the world.

Today, there are still plans to continue and make more parables, and we’re excited to share all of these adventurous cartoons with you today! Fun for all ages, Patch Parables is like your childhood “Saturday morning” cartoons, but grounded entirely in spiritual teachings!

Extra thanks goes out to Lee VanPelt for the logo, Seb Skelly for the introduction music, and VISON for the audio recording during Season 1! Special thanks to Andrew Golden for without him this could not have been made! Thank you so much for everyone who provided their time, energy, and love into helping create this project!
