Minnesota Cuke and the Search for Noah's Umbrella is the thirty-eighth episode in the VeggieTales animated series. The episode was produced by Big Idea Productions and was released through Boomerang Media. It was released in the U.S. and Canada on DVD on July 31, 2009 in Christian bookstores and August 1, 2009 in the general market. It is also a sequel to Minnesota Cuke and the Search for Samson's Hairbrush which was released in 2005. Like its predecessor, the episode is a parody of the Indiana Jones film series, specifically of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
When the show begins, we see Larry wearing a paper bag over his head, with eye holes cut out and a frowning face drawn on. When Bob asks Larry about this, Larry explains that before the show he stopped at a local fast food restaurant for lunch. When he got his meal he sang a prayer over his food, thanking God for his food. Larry is now feeling embarrassed because the kids in the next booth laughed at him for doing this. Bob decides to devote this show to Larry's problem.
The story opens with a child Minnesota Cuke chasing after the three Scallions who have stolen the Muskie of 47' Minn manages to retrieve the Muskie, albeit briefly, as the Scallions steal it back. The scene then shifts to show an adult Minn who is still trying to retrieve the Muskie but continues to fail. Later, Mister Humphry Muffet sends Minn on a quest around the world in search for Noah’s Ark, Minn then he learns of the mysterious and powerful relic "Noah's Umbrella". He then teams up with his best friend, Julia and his former arch enemy, Professor Rattan to find it before Rattan's twin brother, Wicker uses it for his own schemes.
Back at the countertop scene, Larry's bag is now wearing a smiley face, saying that he loves the story. Bob immediately wants Larry to remove the bag but he would rather not. Bob is startled when the bag again changes expressions; he frantically removes it from Larry's head. At the end, Jimmy Gourd shows up with the bag with a smiley face on it, saying, "I'm so happy and I don't know why!"
In the Silly Song entitled Sippy Cup Larry in a restaurant, who always has to drink from a sippy cup, because he always spills drinks Larry keeps begging them to not make him use a sippy cup throughout the song. when Larry is sent to court to determine whether or not he has to keep using a sippy cup. Mr. Nezzer sentences him to using a sippy cup, but after receiving a call from the governor, Larry doesn't have to use a sippy cup. Mr. Lunt then offers Larry grape juice in a wine glass, only to have Larry spill it again.
