Storyline

When Archibald Asparagus takes over VeggieTales, he does this episode in a classy way. The "Silly Song with Larry" involves takes place in the thirties, with Larry trying to protect his top hat from being squashed, and singing in Sinatra-like tunes. The episode's entire story is supposedly a lost Gilbert and Sullivan musical, which Archibald learns at the end was just a prank script. It involves a friendly young viking who continually leaves the ship with some money and returns with an empty bag. When two other vikings are sent to find out what's going on, they learn he is returning what they stole to the monks. But should they tell their superior, if it'll get Lyle executed?

Tongue in cheek look at the importance of Sharing
28 January 2004 | by (boston) – See all my reviews

Hey they are VIKINGS ! as their wives sing - "that's the lot we got when married we...the terrors of the sea !" When Lyle , the smallest viking of the crew begins to be mysteriously missing from the crew's various raids, 2 of his crew mates smell something fishy. They decide to follow him one night and discover that not only is he not participating in the raids, he's actually going to the same places and giving stuff back ! Archebald Asparagus tries to host the show this time. After Jimmy and Jerry Gourds awful attempt, Archebald argues that he deserves a shot at it and has the french peas try and locate a Lost Gilbert and Sullivan musical. Along with "OMLET" ( a spoof of Shakespeare's "Hamlet" ) his wish to bring a touch of class to the show comes true. Well, sort of...

A definite VeggieTales classic !
