Cup Card
Sippy Cup is the Silly Song from Minnesota Cuke and the Search for Noah's Umbrella and is sung by Larry the Cucumber along with Mr. Lunt, Jimmy Gourd, Madame Blueberry, and Mr. Nezzer. In the song, Larry goes to a fancy restaurant and asks for a glass of grape juice. The waiter (Mr. Lunt) refuses because Larry has spilled grape juice several times in the past and ultimately forces Larry to use a sippy cup. Larry tries to argue his case with the waiter, busboy (Jimmy), and maître d' (Madame Blueberry), but they insist that Larry use the sippy cup. When a courtroom judge (Mr. Nezzer) is about to pass the sippy cup sentence, the governor calls in and says that Larry can have his grape juice in a glass... which he promptly spills.


( shows an overview of a restaurant with Larry sitting, and Jean Claude playing the piano.)

Mr. Lunt: And what would you like to drink?

Larry: I'll just have water, please. And could I have it in a glass this time?

Mr. Lunt: Hmm, Let me check my records…

(scrolls over pages on his notepad with stains)

Just as I suspected

Good thing I stopped and checked it

My pad is stained and blotted

From liquids you spilt on it

I'm afraid the jig is up…

Larry: STOP!!

Don't bring me a sippy cup

Haven't spilled since yesterday

Water won't stain anyway

Bring a mug

Bring a jug

Just don't bring… a sippy cup

Mr. Lunt: Hmm, let me check with the busboy…

(leaves offscreen to talk with the busboy)

Is he the one?

(both Mr. Lunt and Jimmy show up)

Jimmy: IT'S YOU!!

Every time I fill it

He turns around and spills it

I've brought a hundred blotters

'Cause you can't hold your waters

This time I'm not mopping up…

Both: You must use a sippy cup

Larry: NO!

Don't bring me a sippy cup

They'll be making fun o' me

Put a pail in front o' me

Bring a mug

Bring a jug

Bring a jug

Just don't bring… a sippy cup

Mr. Lunt: Well, I could ask the Maitre D'…

(Mr. Lunt and Jimmy vanished for a few seconds until Madame Blueberry arrives')

Blueberry: Zees is impos-see-blay

He puddles up ze cafe

You take me for a fool?

A restaurant's not a pool

Take his glass and lock it up

All three: Ze pickle gets a sippy cup

Larry: Wait!!

Don't bring me a sippy cup

This time I'm not gonna spill

Jimmy: I'm pretty sure he will

Larry: Spilling soda's not a crime

If it is, I'll do time

Just don't bring… a sippy cup

(the music becomes slower, with the lights dimming, and a judge's stand show up with Mr. Nezzer on it)

Nezzer: Order, order in the court

I judge you the clumsy sort

By the dictates of our laws

I sentence you to safety straws

(telephone rings, and Jimmy brings it to the judge)

Jimmy: It's the Governor.

Nezzer: (answering the phone) Yes, I see. Very well. Thank you, Governor. (closes the phone) Ahem…

Give me back that sippy cup

You've been granted sippy stay

Larry: This must my lucky day

Chorus: This must be his lucky day

Nezzer: Bring a mug

Bring a jug

Jimmy: I'll bring an absorbent rug

Chorus: You don't need… a sippy cup

(Mr. Lunts shows up with a wine glass filled with grape juice)

Mr. Lunt: Compliments of the house, grape juice.

Larry: Grape juice? (Dramatic zooms between some of the characters and Larry as starts to drink the grape juice, only to spill it all over others) Oops! Sorry!

Narrator: This has been silly songs with Larry. Tune in next time to hear Larry say: I'll take that sippy cup!
