Ask for sharing the banana

A minion named Lary finds a banana in his box and attempts to eat it, but his one-eyed co-worker named Darwin notices it, and they fight for the banana after Lary refuses to share. A tall minion, who appears to be an inspector, tells them to stop fighting but joins the fight when he sees the banana.

They fight and enter a rocket factory, and the banana's carried away by a trapping claw. The inspector minion releases the banana but accidentally releases the rockets also. The three minions together with the banana escape while the rockets explode behind them.

They then fight again to a canteen where they are joined and chased by numerous minions. During the fight, the banana is squished out of its peel and falls into a hole, much to the minions' disappointment. A one-eyed minion (looks like Lance) appears with an apple, and the chase begins all over again.
