I had a "cartoon" bible when I was a kid. It was in three paperback volums, the art was good, it faithfully followed most of the major tales that a kid could get it's head around. I probably read individual stories a hundred times. I'd say that it was one of the foundational works of my cultural literacy.

While I can't say much about the other works described here I do plan on buying my child a cartoon bible. I am not going to buy the action bible shown in the piece, but a somewhat less sensationally produced one. I can't think of a better way to introduce the fables in the bible to my child and it's a matter I've considered long and hard.
