Tongue in cheek look at the importance of Sharing, 28 January 2004
Author: (sweetadditions-hot) from boston

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 !
