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?

The VeggieTales Musical!
29 July 2003 | by See all my reviews

My family and I found this Big Idea production to be one of the most entertaining VeggieTales shows. As usual, the characters are very funny, but I especially enjoy the songs and music.

The Silly Song, `Larry's High Silk Hat', spoofs Forest Gump to the tune of `Funniculi, Funnicula'. My 19 month old enjoys dancing to it.

Note the references to other VeggieTale shows: the chocolate bunny (from Rack, Shack and Benny) in the silly song and Lyle's Stuff Mart bag (from Madame Blueberry)

A sharp production with a meaningful message that all kids (and adults) should see.
