"The Wedding Planner" "Sarah"
List of episodes

"No Arnie" is the twenty-first episode of season one of Hello from the Magic Tavern. It was originally released on July 27, 2015. This episode features Steve Waltien as Tomblain Belaroth.


"Hi! It’s Chunt. I’m the host now because Arnie ran off to find Sarah in the woods. It will probably be a better show without him."


Chunt and Usidore are the hosts as Arnie is currently out chasing his wife Sarah in the woods, who showed up at the end of "The Wedding Planner". They are doing the podcast out of respect for Arnie and his potential listeners. Tom the Traveller is back as their guest. He had to take a month off from The Cockticklers because he became addicted to the morglorb Usidore sold him in his last appearance. He is currently in two productions: the famous Danlet, and I Have A Noble Cock, a children's play about a farmer who discovers that his chicken is a king, thanks to a frog that spells out words using eggs. He is nominated for a Tosser award for his performance as the eponymous role in Danlet, and is prepared to accept it despite the ceremony being held in his home, the Northeast.

Tom reveals that he will join Usidore on his quest to defeat The Dark Lord, and if he wins the Tosser, he will use his speech to champion the cause, which he says is the second-most important thing in the world (first is love). He is doing this because he has seen too many bad things, including a suspicious amount of accidents, and because he has heard rumors on the Overlander's Road that the Dark Lord has come into possession of a "metal horse", which is probably the Toyota Camry that Arnie came to Foon in. To combat this, Chunt asks Usidore to conjure their own tiny metal horse (with three buttholes), but Usidore fails.

In discussing Tom's royal family, Usidore informs him that Princess Belaroth was a guest on the podcast as well, and she is hunting for him. They all agree that she is the most evil person they have met outside of Blemish. Tom is also worried that his love, Rhiannon, may have taken up with a milk boy.


During the email segment, we learn that boys are always born first on Foon, and what a chance food is.


During the interlude, the Burger King employee can hear people talking in the Vermilion Minotaur through the drive-thru window.
