I cant think of a good solution other than "free stuff pl0x" i cant tell if the anchovies are specifically anchovies related or specifically runescape. The instrument would then be for those street musicians playing and "asking" for money. Oliver twist is just a hungry lad asking for .ore food. Help wanted is just asking for help. I cant come up with a clear solution but "begging" seeks to be a common theme.

My answer is "the first episode of Spongebob Squarepants, titled 'Help Wanted'"

"Anchovies" are the swarm of customers that Spongebob feeds
"Ukelele" I guess is the main instrument of the OST, "Spongebob's Theme"
"Please sir can I have some more?" is the plot/motivation with the anchovies
"Help wanted" is the name of the episode

yeah this is close enough, you got it well enough

you can't receive credits though, since you have 0 Grandtotal on FFR

solution:


Raw anchovies brought me to Spongebob Squarepants, which was reinforced by "Help Wanted" (i.e. the first episode of Spongebob). Clues 2 and 3 were tricky so I went to the transcript for the episode:

https://spongebob.fandom.com/wiki/He...ted/transcript

and noticed this line:

Quote:
SpongeBob: That's right! One hydrodynamic spatula with [two spatulas pop out on the sides of the previous one] port-and-starboard attachments! And lets not forget the turbo drive! [the two extending spatulas twirl around and smack Squidward and Mr. Krabs in the face] Would you believe they only had one in stock? To the kitchen! [to the anchovies] Who's hungry?! [Tiny Tim's "Living in the Sunlight, Loving in the Moonlight" plays while SpongeBob serves up Krabby Patty after Krabby Patty. Numerous Krabby Patties are launched through the opening window to the hungry anchovies. Eventually, all of the anchovies are served and they leave on the buses. Cuts to later.]
The song is a ukelele song played by... one Tiny Tim, not Oliver Twist. This matches with clues 2 and 3. The answer is the name of the song, "Living in the Sunlight, Loving in the Moonlight"


this was a neat puzzle, I'm excited to see what else you have in store for us, sunman

I'll try to be a bit nicer with the hints, but all the ones I think of are evil
