Bill Tracy is a great lesson in having respect.


The CountertopEdit

In an attempt to bring the highest level of class and sophistication to VeggieTales, Archibald Asparagus requests and receives permission to run the show. The countertop is then modified with a faux fireplace and wing chair (a la Masterpiece Theatre) and Archibald introduces the first segment.

The TempoEdit

Back on the CountertopEdit

Finally, Archibald presents the "long lost musical of Gilbert and Sullivan," provided by The French Peas, entitled Lyle the Kindly Viking. Unfortunately, Archibald found out that this is not a musical, so the peas picked out a detective story, that of Bill Tracy.

What We Have LearnedEdit

In the closing countertop sequence, Archibald discovers that his story was not written by Gilbert and Sullivan, but rather by "Cavis Appythart" and "Millward Phelps". Angry at being duped, Archibald chases the French Peas off and the scene falls into chaos.
