Veggie Tales: Minnesota Cuke and the Search for Noah's Umbrella

Sunday, August 09, 2009

My kids' first Veggie Tale movie was Abe and the Amazing Promise. Without a doubt, it was more than I could have ever expected. The characters are cute, polite, likable and there is a great lesson for children - Patience!

So, after being inundated with SpongeBob and Super Hero movies, I was really looking forward to watching another Veggie Tales movie! Thank goodness Minnesota Cuke and the Search for Noah's Umbrella arrived just in time from the Family Review Network!

During the movie, Larry the Cucumber is Minnesota Cuke, a children's museum curator and part-time detective hired to find the famous Noah's Ark. He lacks one thing - confidence. He always is worried about what other people think of him before he acts. He doesn't want to be silly or laughed at for being different. But sometimes during the search of Noah's umbrella against a clever villain, he has to act different to get through the clues successfully - drawing attention to himself. So during the movie we are all rooting that Minnesota will find the confidence to continue the search, follow the clues, face the villain and protect the umbrella! You can watch a clip here:



There is also a new silly song called Sippy Cup. In it Larry the Cucumber is at a fancy restaurant and everyone wants him to use a sippy cup for his drink of water. But he wants to use a regular cup, promising he wont spill! It's super cute and definitely my toddler can relate as he demands his nighttime drink in an open cup with a straw! No more sippy cups for him!

Other bonus features include:
  • How to Draw Minnesota Cuke
  • How to Draw Julia
  • Director's Commentary
  • Art Gallery
  • Discussion Guide
The video is approximately 50 minutes. It is not rated, but honestly it is 100x cleaner, sweeter and more appropriate than any Disney Cartoon. There is a great lesson. And it is an exciting adventure! Minnesota Cuke is the Indian Jones of Veggie Tales!

Right now if you order Minnesota Cuke and the Search for Noah's Umbrella ($14.99 at BigIdea.com), you will get the Bad Apple DVD free!

You can visit interactive website for Minnesota Cuke and the Search for Noah's Umbrella as you wait for the arrival of the DVD you HAVE TO ORDER! On this website, you will search for the umbrella, learn fun facts and maybe even win $1,000 worth of Veggie Tales DVDs!
