The Ultimate Silly Song Countdown is the eighteenth episode in the VeggieTales animated series and the third Silly Song compliation. The premise was to countdown the Top 10 Silly Songs as decided by the show's viewers. Big Idea launched a campaign to collect and tally votes from fans via mail and internet for the purpose of showing on this video with the Astonishing Contraption of Silliness and the Pirates Who Don't Do Anything from The Peach and the Beach. It was released on March 6, 2001 by HiT Entertainment on VHS and DVD.

PlotEdit

This episode takes place entirely on the countertop where Larry Mr.Lunt. and Pa Grape are hosting the show. Pa Grape informs the others that today they are going to do a little something else after all but they resist. They laze around eating Chinese food while Pa Grape introduces the "Astonishing Contraption of Silliness" ("What a lame name" says Mr.Lunt). Pa Grape pushes them into action and they feed the votes into the Contraption which sputters and begins presenting the Top 10 Silly Songs of All Time.

The Contraption malfunctions halfway through the countdown producing nonsense such as "The Dance of the Yodeling Cebu Lips" and "The Song of the Water Buffalo Who Dont Love Cebu With Yodeling Lips" forcing Larry and Mr. Lunt to come up with a song of their own. The result based on the text of a Chinese takeout menu is called "Do the Moo Shoo" and is a sort of Sumo version. Pa Grape declares that it wont make the Top Ten and manages to fix the machine so the countdown can continue.

When the countdown gets to the top two The Contraption announces "The Pirates Who Dont...". from The Peach and the Beach But Pa Grape starts acting shifty and suggests that all the votes have not been collected. He produces a big bag labeled "Official Votes" and feeds them into the machine. Larry and Mr. Lunt confront him and he confesses to rigging the election because "The Pirates Who Dont Do Anything" from The Peach and the Beach is the only song that features him. Larry and Mr. Lunt forgive him saying that its better than "The Forgive-O-Matic" from "God Wants Me To Forgive Them!?!" which was a failed attempt to sell a machine that supposedly gives automatic forgiveness. The final two songs are presented and the show ends.

Plot Edit

On the Countertop, the Pirates Who Don't Do Anything, greet the viewers to what is known as "The Ultimate Pre-Jonah Episode Countdown". Larry explains to the viewers that they asked fans to cast votes for which episode before their new movie, "Jonah", before presenting a machine that looks suspiciously similar to The Astonishing Contraption of Silliness, called "The Amusing Contraption of Faith-Based Virtues and Fun". Larry demonstrates how it works. He enlists Pa Grape, Mr. Lunt, to get to work with getting the countdown ready.

Bob explains the rules to the viewers while Larry, Mr. Lunt, bring out sacks full of votes. Once all the votes are placed into the machine, Bob tells Archibald to pull the lever. Once the lever is pulled, the machine brings up the VeggieTales episodes in order of vote

#10: King George and the Ducky

#9: Rack, Shack and Benny

#8: Lyle the Kindly Viking

However, when the Amusing Contraption of Faith-Based Virtues and Fun malfunctions, this time bringing up a non-existent episode title called "Where's God When I'm Worshipping a Silly Pickle?", Archibald stops the countdown, saying there's something wrong with it. He then uses a mallet to fix it up. This time, it's able to work properly again, bringing up:

#7: Where's God When I'm S-Scared?

Pa then praises the episode as "the episode that started the whole thing". He says to pause for a moment of respect, before telling Larry to "hit it". After that, more episodes are brought up again in order of vote:

#6: The End of Silliness?

#5: Josh and the Big Wall!

When the Amusing Contraption of Faith-Based Virtues and Fun malfunctions once again, bringing up another non-existent episode title called "A Sad and Hilarious King Who Steals a Wall in Space", Pa Grape try to fix the machine. Meanwhile, Larry and Mr. Lunt teach the viewers the same "Do the Moo Shoo" dance. By the time the song ends, Madame Blueberry is anxious for her debut episode to hit the number four spot. The Amusing Contraption of Faith-Based Virtues and Fun brings up more episodes in order of vote:

#4: Madame Blueberry

#3: Dave and the Giant Pickle

Once that's over, Archibald tells the viewers that they're down to two more episodes, and they'll see which episode before the Jonah movie is the best. Mr. Lunt, and Larry all discuss about why they made the countdown in the first place. After the discussion is over, the Amusing Contraption Of Faith Based Virtues And Fun brings up the number two episode:

#2: Very Silly Songs!

Soon, the Amusing Contraption Of Faith Based Virtues and Fun brings up the number one episode:

#1: Are You My Neighbor?

Once the episode proven to be the best is revealed and the countdown is over, Bob, Larry, Junior and the rest then thank the viewers for voting.

After the episode ends, a behind-the-scenes documentary of Jonah: A VeggieTales Movie (the same one from the end of the 3-2-1 Penguins! episode The Amazing Carnival of Complaining) plays.
