Professor Rattan was a childhood bully of Minnesota Cuke. When they grew up, Rattan wanted to compete against Minnesota. He attempts to steal the objects Minnesota founded that should be for the museum. Rattan stole the golden carrot founded by Minnesota. After journeying to find clues for Samson's Hairbrush, Minnesota went under the barber shop and after passing through tunnels, he founded the hairbrush. When Minnesota went back, the guards attempted to arrest Rattan, but Minnesota wanted Rattan freed and it redeem him.
Rattan appeared as Mr. Lunt, one of the Veggietales characters, who is a gourd. He wears some kind of adventure outfit. He parodies René Belloq from Indiana Jones.
Rattan appears to be merciless to Minnesota. He is greedy, as shown when he likes stealing objects for himself. He is also quite an intimidator, so this is how he bullies him.
