The Biscuit of Zazzamarandabo is the twenty-third Silly Songs with Larry, it was featured in the episode: Tomato Sawyer and Huckleberry Larry's Big River Rescue.

Archibald Asparagus and his friends Larry, Pa Grape, Mr. Lunt, and the French Peas go on a road trip to see the famed "Biscuit of Zazzamarandabo". However, Larry, who is the driver, is constantly stopping to get something, frustrating Archibald.


Bob: You're on!

Announcer: What's my line?

Bob: Just read the script.

Announcer: I don't have one!

Bob: Larry! Where's the script for the Silly Song?

Larry: Oops!

Bob: Don't tell me you forgot!

Archibald: I got a song!

Larry: You're a life saver!

(As the song starts, we see a red and white Volkswagen Station Wagon bouncing across the road.)

Archibald: The Biscuit of Zazzamarandabo, it lies atop a mound of snow, high in the hills where the cold winds blow, it's the Biscuit of Zazzamarandabo. Come on!

French Peas: Yippee!

Archibald: Let's go!

French Peas: and see

All: The Biscuit of Zazzamarandabo.

(They stop to pick up Pa Grape and Mr. Lunt.)

Archibald: Our bags are packed and ready to go, lets-

All: Start the van and be gone, start the van and be gone. Now our bags are all packed and we're ready to go, let's start the van and be gone.

Archibald: Come on!

French Peas: Oh my!

Archibald: Let's go!

French Peas: And spy!

All: The Biscuit of Zazzamarandabo.

(Larry stops the van at a bank.)

Archibald: Oooh! What's that you say? We can't leave yet today? You've just got an errand to run?

Larry: I've just got to stop at the bank.

Archibald: You just have to stop at the bank? Well, if you insist, I suppose. We can deal with a minor delay.

All: Deal with a minor delay.

Pa Grape: Say, Archibald, who made this biscuit anyway?

Archibald: Oh, I thought you'd never ask! Sir James McNab of the Guild of Dough, he made the biscuit so long ago, and the people they travelled to see it glow,

All: On the mountain of Zazzamarandabo.

(Larry returns and the journey continues.)

Archibald: Come on!

Pa Grape: Hurray.

Archibald: Let's go!

Mr. Lunt: Hey!

All: The Biscuit of Zazzamarandabo.

(Next, Larry stops at a coffee shop.)

Archibald: Ooooh, what is it now? This isn't the way.

Larry: I just need to stop for some goldfish food.

Archibald: You don't even have a goldfish.

Larry: No, but I was thinkin' of gettin' one and I wouldn't want him to go hungry. (Larry leaves the van and comes back.) Anybody need anything?

Mr. Lunt: Maybe a venti half-caff vanilla hazelnut latte, hold the whip cream. And maybe one of those little chocolate-covered graham crackers? (During this line, Archibald bangs his head against the dashboard in frustration.)

(After getting coffee and a slushy, the journey continues.)

Larry: So, Archie, what's so great about this biscuit anyway?

Archibald: Well, if you really want to know... The Biscuit of Zazzamarandabo was lost to the world many years ago, until my Great Uncle Archenbeau stubbed his toe on the frozen dough of the

All: Biscuit of Zazzamarandabo.

Archibald: Come on!

Philippe: Oh, please!

Jean Claude: Let's go!

Archibald: Don't tease.

All: The Biscuit of Zazzamarandabo.

(One more stop. This time, it's a map stand.)

Archibald: Ooooh! Not again, it's just not fair!

Larry: We've got to have a map!

Archibald: A what?

Larry: A map.

Archibald: A what?

Larry: A map.

All: Ooooh, a map. The Biscuit of Zazzamarandabo, the Biscuit of Zazzamarandabo!

(They all reach their destination.)

Archibald: The joy!

Larry: The thrill!

Mr. Lunt: I think I spilled...

All: The Biscuit, the Biscuit, the Biscuit of Zazzamaranda-

(Suddenly, they see Jimmy and Jerry having just eaten the biscuit.)

Jimmy and Jerry Gourd: (burps)

Archibald: -bo...

Phillipe: Uh oh.

(Archibald faints.)

Jimmy: Mmm, sausage gravy!

Larry: Huh, I might have made a wrong turn.

Archibald: (Close-up to of the sign reveals it's the wrong Biscuit) The Biscuit of Doug? (gasp!) Back to the van! Back to the van! It isn't too late, let's go! So high in the hills where the cold winds blow,

All: The Biscuit of Zazzamarandabo.

(The van passes a sign that says the Biscuit is only a hundredth of a mile away.)

Archibald: We're almost there! Oh, isn't this great?

Pa Grape: Who needs to take a potty break?

Jean Claude: Me! I do!

Philippe: Mais oui!

(Larry turns the van around to the nearest restroom, which is 57 miles away.)

Archibald: NO!

All: The biscuit of Zazzamarandabo, it lies atop a mound of snow, high in the hills where the cold winds blow, it's the Biscuit of Zazzamarandabo!

Announcer: I suppose this has been Silly Songs with Archie? Tune in next time to hear Larry say:

Larry: (To Archibald) I always thought you were the announcer.

Archibald: So did I.


Fun Facts


  • This is the second song in a row done by Andrew Peterson and Randall Goodgame.
  • This is the only Silly Song animated by Sparky Animation.
  • In Storyboards, Larry swapped his Huckleberry Larry hat for his adventure hat but that didn't happen in the final version. This couldn't be one of the few Silly Songs that follow with the episode.
  • The lyric where Archie asks "A what?" and Larry replies with "a map" was based on a Bible Youth group game.
  • This Silly Song was originally going to have Larry as a cowboy with a jetpack performing a platypus marionette in space, until Archie came in with his own song "The Biscuit of Zazzamarandabo".
    • The "cowboys on jetpacks" would later be used in Asteroid Cowboys, so it would be likely that he was gonna perform that song.


  • On the second stop, Larry has to buy goldfish food. But it's a coffee shop, and they don't normally stock pet food. Also, you can't get slushies there.
  • Larry might not have needed to turn the van around as there's very likely a visitor's center with a bathroom at their destination.
