Raiders of the Lost Ark seems to have been the inspiration for this engaging addition to the Veggie Tales series. Minnesota Cuke is Indiana Jones, and Noah's Ark, the Ark of the Covenant. As usual there are clever minds at work at Big Idea Studios and there's plenty to satisfy fans of these friendly salad faves.

For those less familiar with the series, and especially those from non-Christian households, this may not be the one to start with. There are more religious messages throughout and phrases like "God promised it would, and God doesn't lie," "he obeyed God's instructions," and "God's word is for everyone"; they could use some context from Sunday school instruction and parents.
