Larry the Cucumber is embarrassed. He just got laughed at for giving thanks for his food at lunch. And so Bob the Tomato sets aside the letter of the day and offers us this story instead.

Minnesota Cuke (Larry again) has had it with being laughed at. He doesn't even want to take a new archeological job as a result. But he gets talked into searching for Noah's Ark when he learns that his friend Rattan (Mr. Lunt) has disappeared after starting the search. Fearing his friend might be in trouble, he sets out for Mexico where he is reunited with Julia (Sweet Petunia). But the clues Minnesota has to follow are silly. Will he be able to follow them or will he be too embarrassed to save his friend?

Along the way, we do get a new silly song. "Sippy Cup" actually fits into the theme as it finds Larry at a restaurant asking for a real glass instead of a sippy cup even though he has a reputation for spilling. It found it amusing, but I think the target audience will really get into it since they will identify with it.

And really, this entry in the series will appeal to anyone. The action is fast moving and silly enough for the kids. Yet this one spoofs the third Indiana Jones movie pretty well, especially the climax, so adults will enjoy many of the jokes and puns. The moral is a tad heavy handed at times, but that's my only real complaint. Still, the reminder to do the right thing even if we get laughed at is important.

It still amazes me how much fun these videos can be for all ages while still teaching important Biblical lessons. If you've missed these gems, this is as good a place as any to start.

Minnesota Cuke - the loveable children's museum curator - is back for another Veggie Tales adventure! Following up on his eagerly received premiere appearance in Minnesota Cuke and the Search for Samson's Hairbrush, Larry takes to the screen again in his role as Minnesota, with both halves of the disc dedicated to his search for Noah's umbrella.

Written by the same team that brought us the original episode, Tim Hodge and Robert G. Lee spin a tale of intrigue and adventure that shows a distraught Larry that trusting in, and obeying God is all that matters. When some fellow fast food eaters ridicule Larry after singing a song of thanks over his chicken nuggets, Bob realizes that Larry is in need of his own story.

Minnesota Cuke hates being laughed at. Though he's tried to do right since he was a wee cucumber, he's just about had it with people making fun of him. The eccentric Mr Muffett (who made his fortune in a best-selling poem about his daughter - "Little Miss Muffett") is building a Bible-themed goldfish pond in his backyard, and needs to find Noah's ark to use as the centerpiece.

Larry's quest takes him on a journey filled with mysterious clues, kidnapping, evil twins, and... lots of people laughing at him along the way. Bolstered by scriptural encouragement from his platonic sidekick Julia - Petunia Rhubarb - and challenged through his trials, he eventually comes to the conclusion that when God is happy with his actions, it doesn't matter what others think.

After the release of a rather disappointing Abe and the Amazing Promise, I'm thrilled to see that Big Idea is back on track with this, their 38th Veggie Tales episode.

I gave it one star because that's the lowest it will go. I know I bought it from some thrift store, but come on; did you not think to check that it was the right movie in there before sending it? I got he case and my cousins were excited cause they love Veggie Tales, but instead there was a Casper scare school disc that was jacked up.

Veggie Tales have always been great. When Phil Vicher lost control of the company a few years ago (I highly recommend his book Me, Myself & Bob that tells about that), others have taken a turn writing the epsiodes....not always a good thing. While good they just have not been up to Veggie Tales standards.

This one really hits the mark. While watching I was sure that Phil must have written this one. Imagine my surprise at the credits to find out it was not him!

Anyway, this is a defite must have for Veggie fans. If you have never seen a Veggie Tales before, this is a good place to be introduced to them!

This VeggieTale is watched by all my kids. It even opened up discussions with my older kids about Mount Ararat being located in Eastern Turkey, how the world will end one day, following instructions as they are given, putting a low priority on what others say/think about us as Christians, and how God is someone who is not about "formulas" but faith.

Very fun veggie tales movie. My kids love the entire series and this was just as great as the others! I feel better about my children watching tv if I know they're getting something educational from it!

One of the best Veggietales! Really cool parody of Indiana Jones. Ruins to explore, old friends to hunt out, captured friends to rescue, new ruthless enemies to evade, clues to follow, and a priceless prize to find. Exciting, suspenseful, and has a great message. I especially like the description of "righteous" people as "right thing doers." Just follow God's directions and He'll take care of you.
