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?

Many viewers agree: The is the best Veggietales!
9 January 2004 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

Just as a contrast to the first comment left about this video, most fans think this is the best of the Veggietales lot. It has outsold all previous episodes (though the recent "Ballad of Little Joe" is closing in on its sales records) and received Best Direct to Video Release of 2000 from the World Animation Celebration -- beating out "Lady and the Tramp II". If you want more positive reviews, check out Amazon.com. I, for one, think you'll like it, too.
