Minnesota Cuke Synopsis

Courtesy of Big Idea

Larry the Cucumber stars as Minnesota Cuke, mild-mannered curator of a children’s museum by day, fearless explorer by… well… day. Minnesota learns of Samson’s mysterious hairbrush, and a plot by the Canadians to use its legendary powers to control both sides of Niagara Falls. After embarking on an expedition halfway across the globe, he discovers the man behind the plot is really none other than Professor Rattan, Minnesota’s lifelong nemesis.

It’s a hair-raising adventure with secret underground passageways, melting ice cream and enough wacky twists to keep you hanging on the edge of your seat! Who will find Samson’s hairbrush first? Will Minnesota finally get even with that mean bully Rattan, or will he find the power to forgive?

As an added feature, fans can catch up with Junior Asparagus as he digs deep to find the courage to face the playground bully.
