The End of Silliness? is the eleventh Veggietales episode and the second sing-along video. It is released on November 24, 1998.


The plot opens in an ice cream parlor where Larry is crying himself to sleep over the cancellation of his "Silly Songs with Larry" segment. As he tosses and turns in his sleep from the bad memories, Jimmy wakes him up and asks Larry why he's so upset. Larry explains by having Jimmy go over to the jukebox and play "The Song of the Cebu", then complains that it wasn't his fault that the song got messed up. "The Song of the Cebu" is a song which Larry presents an audience with a story about a boy and 3 cebus while Archibald repeatedly interrupts with questions.

As Archibald and his wife enter the parlor, Jimmy tries to cheer Larry up by playing some more songs on the jukebox. "The Promised Land" is a song which the Israelites sing about the promised land. "Good Morning George" is a song that talks about the chocolate factory. "The Thankfulness Song" is a song which Annie sings about being thankful. After hearing "The Thankfulness Song", Larry tries to cheer himself up by saying that he's thankful for the time he did have with his silly songs, but he breaks down crying again and Jimmy rushes to play more songs. "Keep Walking" is a song where the soldiers on the wall sing as Josh and crew march. "Big Things Too" is a song where Dave sings about self-esteem. "Stuff-Mart Rap" is a rap where the StuffMart salesmen sing about their store.

Later, Jimmy tries again to get Larry to explain why he's so upset. A mysterious man reveals himself as Archibald Asparagus, who plays the Love Songs With Mr. Lunt segment "His Cheeseburger". "His Cheeseburger" is the song which Mr. Lunt sings about one vegetable's love for a cheeseburger. After the song, Jimmy angrily confronts Archibald over his actions, and Archibald admits it's his fault that Larry is so upset. Archibald argues that he was looking out for the show's standards, but then opens his briefcase to reveal a stack of signed papers from fans, asking that Archibald forgives Larry and restores his segment to the show.

Archibald happily gives Larry back his segment, and Larry goes over to the jukebox to close the show with his latest song, "The Yodeling Veterinarian of the Alps". In the song, Larry is a veterinarian who yodels to animals. The nurse slips out medicine to the pet owners behind the vet's back. When the raise is not paid, Larry tells the truth thanks to a bear.
