This is a list of characters that appear in the VeggieTales franchise.

Primary characters[edit]

Bob the Tomato[edit]

Bob the Tomato (introduced 1993) is the straight man in the his friendship with Larry the Cucumber. The pair introduce and wrap-up the Biblical lesson at the end of most of the shows. He also plays many character roles in the story segments, some of which are in contrast to his more mature persona, which Phil Vischer called "my inner Mr. Rogers".[1]

Bob first appeared in 1992 in a VeggieTales promo "Take 38" and later in 1993 in Big Idea's first video, Where's God When I'm S-Scared?. In it, he and Larry set the opening format which has largely become a VeggieTales standard, where a letter is read from a viewer by the duo on a kitchen counter (which serves as a sort of stage). In this show, Bob played himself in the first of the two 15-minute segments titled "Tales from the Crisper", comforting a frightened Junior Asparagus with the cheerful song, "God is Bigger." The end of this episode started a running gag in which Bob is annoyed by the "What We Have Learned" end-of-episode song, impatiently waiting until it is over so that he can ask Qwerty what they've learned. Bob also has his own Silly Song called Lance the Turtle, which was written by Jean Claude and Phillipe.

Bob the Tomato is voiced by Phil Vischer.

Larry the Cucumber[edit]

Larry the Cucumber (introduced 1993) partners with his best friend Bob as the wacky companion hosting the videos. In the pre-2015 theme song, he plays a sousaphone while Bob and other characters sing. Larry is often seen in the recurring musical segment entitled Silly Songs with Larry, in which Larry performs humorous musical numbers of various styles and content. The Silly Song segment, typically placed in the middle of the video, immediately became a very popular staple of VeggieTales entertainment and has been featured in several compilation videos. Larry also has several other recurring roles including: "Minnesota Cuke" (a parody of Indiana Jones), one of The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything, and the comical "superhero" LarryBoy who was featured in the short-lived animated series, Larryboy: The Cartoon Adventures.

Larry was first created by Vischer as a chocolate bar, but then a cucumber, due to Vischer's wife suggesting that parents would not think videos of a chocolate bar would be too good for children– due to reasons of healthy eating habits.[2] The now-cucumber Larry was then used to make a 20-second animation test called "Mr. Cuke's Screen Test" in 1991, which inspired Vischer and Mike Nawrocki to create VeggieTales. Larry's on-screen debut was in Big Idea's first video, Where's God When I'm S-Scared? In this first episode, he was the source of most of the jokes, including physical gags and silly dialogue. The video also featured the first Silly Song: "The Water Buffalo Song." Larry is the only character to have made an appearance in every single VeggieTales episode (to date).

One of the most notable differences between the Larry of Where's God When I'm S-Scared? and later videos is the range of his voice. While Nawrocki has always performed Larry's voice, early shows were voiced with a broad vocal range, from Nawrocki's natural tenor to well above. Starting with Are You My Neighbor?, that range was limited in scope to the upper range and included a slight lisp, giving Larry a more youthful and sillier sound. Gradually, Larry's speech became more normal.

Larry is one of the only Veggies to have spoken about, and to have been seen with his family. He talks about his Aunt Ruth in the Silly Song "I Love My Lips" and about a cousin in the Silly Song "The Song of the Cebu". In Duke and the Great Pie War, he introduces his three brothers, named Bob, Mark, and Steve, who perform the "What We Have Learned" song.

Larry the Cucumber is voiced by Mike Nawrocki.

Junior Asparagus[edit]

Junior Asparagus (introduced 1993) is one of the co-stars of the VeggieTales series and appears as a typical child. Junior has taken a lead role in several videos, including Where's God When I'm S-Scared?, Dave and the Giant Pickle, Lyle the Kindly Viking, and Lord of the Beans. He is also a member of the boy band "Boyz in the Sink", along with Larry, Mr. Lunt, and Jimmy Gourd, which have appeared in several Silly Songs. Junior is also seen at various times with his parents, Dad and Mom Asparagus.

In the initial episodes, Junior was as much a main character as Bob or Larry, having a starring role in at least one segment in every episode - even appearing alongside Bob on the sink counter (in place of Larry) in Josh and the Big Wall and Abe and the Amazing Promise. As the series has evolved, his role has become less pronounced such that Esther... The Girl Who Became Queen would become the first episode in which Junior did not make an appearance. However, Junior continues to be featured prominently with leading roles in such movies as Pistachio – The Little Boy That Woodn't and The Little Drummer Boy.

Junior Asparagus is voiced by Lisa Vischer (the wife of Phil Vischer) in the video releases and the 2019 series "The VeggieTales Show", and by Tress MacNeille in the VeggieTales in the House series.

Archibald Asparagus[edit]

Archibald Asparagus (introduced 1993) appears in a stereotypical role of a stuffy, classically-educated "adult" contrasting with the rest of his co-stars. Archibald typically is seen with a monocle and a red bowtie, and has an Oxford English accent.

Archibald first appeared in Where's God When I'm S-Scared?, playing King Darius in the Daniel and the Lion's Den segment. This episode also started the continuing theme where he thinks Larry the Cucumber's Silly Songs are "too silly". He has also appeared in other Silly Songs including singing The Biscuit of Zazzamarandabo. Archibald has a recurring role as LarryBoy's butler (named "Alfred" in the video series and "Archibald" in the cartoon series) and was featured as the title character in Jonah: A VeggieTales Movie. He also has his own Silly Song called "Astonishing Wigs". Archibald is also the narrator for The Good Egg of Gooseville segment of The Little House that Stood and Larry's High Silk Hat from Lyle the Kindly Viking.

Archibald Asparagus is voiced by Phil Vischer.

Laura Carrot[edit]

Laura Carrot (introduced 1995) is a 6-year-old carrot and Junior's best friend. She first appeared in Are You My Neighbor? as a background character, and got her first major role in Rack, Shack and Benny. She is usually used when there is a child female lead playing the titular character(s). For example, in Princess and the Popstar, she plays both Princess Poppyseed and Vanna Banana, and in the Babysitter in De-Nile segment of Duke and the Great Pie War, she plays Miriam. In, Celery Night Fever, she got a redesign which would become her current look for, The VeggieTales Show.

Laura Carrot has been voiced by Kristin Blegen, Megan Murphy, and Keri Pisapia in the videos, Tress MacNeille in the VeggieTales in the House series, and Kira Buckland in the 2019 series, "The VeggieTales Show".

Mr. Lunt[edit]

Mr. Lunt (introduced 1995) is a decorative gourd[3] with a Spanish accent who grew up in New Jersey. He often appears as Mr. Nezzer's assistant, and the two were introduced in Rack, Shack & Benny. The pair were typically used as the video's "bad guys" in early VeggieTales episodes. Mr. Lunt has also appeared as an individual bad guy such as playing Haman in Esther... the Girl Who Became Queen and Otis the Elevated in Duke and the Great Pie War. As Otis the Elevated, Mr. Lunt and Mr. Nezzer's roles are reversed with Mr. Nezzer playing the sidekick to Mr. Lunt. Mr. Lunt also appears as one of "The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything" and as a member of the boy band, the "Boyz in the Sink". In addition to his "Boyz" songs, Mr. Lunt has gotten two of his own Silly Songs: "His Cheeseburger" and "Donuts for Benny". Notable character features are his gold tooth and his lack of eyes (forcing the use of the brim of his fedora or his eyebrows for expression).

Mr. Lunt is voiced by Phil Vischer.

Jimmy and Jerry Gourd[edit]

Jimmy Gourd and Jerry Gourd (introduced 1995) are gourd brothers who appear as a secondary comic duo. While Bob and Larry can be considered animated versions of Abbott and Costello, Jimmy (the orange gourd) and Jerry (the yellow gourd) might more closely resemble Tweedledee and Tweedledum. The pair debuted together in Are You My Neighbor? which established that they love to eat. Jimmy is a reoccurring member of the boy band "Boyz in the Sink". Jerry appeared with Mr. Lunt in the Love Song "His Cheeseburger" furthering his reputation as loving to eat. Alongside Mr. Lunt, Jimmy did musical commentary in Sweetpea Beauty: A Girl After God's Own Heart.

Jimmy and Jerry Gourd are voiced respectively by Phil Vischer and Mike Nawrocki.

Madame Blueberry[edit]

Madame Blueberry (introduced 1998) is a blueberry with a French accent who first appeared as the title character in Madame Blueberry. Her name and the theme of this video are both obvious allusions to the tale of Madame Bovary and as such Madame Blueberry was early on cast as a vain character. Although a blueberry, she is similar in size to Bob the Tomato and much larger than the similarly-sized-in-real-life French Peas. Madame Blueberry has a reoccurring role as the Mayor of Bumblyburg in the Larry-Boy videos.

Madame Blueberry was voiced in the direct-to-video series by Megan Moore Burns in 1998, by Gail Bock from 1999-2002, by Jackie Ritz from 2002-2009, and Megan Murphy from 2005 to the present. She is voiced by Tress MacNeille in the VeggieTales in the House series, and is voiced by Stephanie Southerland in the 2019 series, "The VeggieTales Show".

Petunia Rhubarb[edit]

Petunia Rhubarb (introduced 2005) is a red-headed rhubarb who is often seen with Larry as his love interest or as a female co-star. Her first appearance was in Duke and the Great Pie War playing the part of Princess Petunia, the scorned "Ruth" figure waiting to be redeemed by Larry's "Boaz". Petunia has a reoccurring role in the LarryBoy videos and sang alongside Larry in the Silly Song, "Where Have All The Staplers Gone?". Petunia was created after the animators decided to never use Queen Esther again because her hair was too difficult to animate.[citation needed]

Petunia Rhubarb is voiced by Cydney Trent for the direct-to-video series, by Tress MacNeille in VeggieTales in the House series, and by Kira Buckland in the 2019 series, "The VeggieTales Show".

Pa Grape[edit]

Pa Grape (introduced 1994) is an elderly grape with glasses and a Yiddish accent. Pa made his first appearance in God Wants Me to Forgive Them!?! as the father of the "Grapes of Wrath." Pa Grape has a reoccurring role as one of the "Pirates Who Don't Do Anything," appearing alongside Larry and Mr. Lunt. Pa Grape is typically cast as a wise, fatherly figure in such roles as Jesse in Dave and the Giant Pickle, Jacob in The Ballad of Little Joe, Mordecai in Esther... The Girl Who Became Queen, and the angel sent to guide Gideon in Gideon: Tuba Warrior.

According to an interview in "What's the Big Idea?" magazine, Pa Grape was held back in the 2nd grade for 13 years and was worried about his lack of eyes.[4]

Pa Grape is voiced by Phil Vischer.

Mr. Nezzer[edit]

Mr. Nezzer (introduced 1995) is a zucchini who made his debut in Rack, Shack & Benny as "Nebby K. Nezzer" (an allusion to Nebuchadnezzar the King of Babylon), the owner of a chocolate factory who creates an idol that he wants everyone to worship. In The Toy That Saved Christmas, Mr. Nezzer plays "Wally P. Nezzer", again with sidekick and chief trouble-maker Mr. Lunt. However in Duke and the Great Pie War, Mr. Nezzer plays the role of the sidekick, with Mr. Lunt taking the lead. In The Star of Christmas and An Easter Carol, he is "Ebenezer Nezzer" (an allusion to Ebenezer Scrooge) who owns a theater and an Easter Egg factory respectively. In addition to his roles, Mr. Nezzer usually appears as the leader in VeggieTales videos such as his role as the King Xerxes of Persia character in Esther... The Girl Who Became Queen, Olaf the lead Viking in Lyle the Kindly Viking, and the Mayor of Dodgeball City in The Ballad of Little Joe and Moe and the Big Exit.

He didn't appear in VeggieTales in the House or VeggieTales in the City, because DreamWorks felt Mr. Nezzer was African-American and, due to their policy restricting African-American characters being portrayed by white voice actors, had replaced the character with a similar-looking character Ichabeezer. Mr. Nezzar returned in "The VeggieTales Show" as the theater owner.[5]

Mr. Nezzer is voiced by Phil Vischer in the direct-to-video series and by David Mann in the 2019 series, The VeggieTales Show.

The French Peas[edit]

Headed by Jean-Claude and Phillipe, the French Peas (introduced 1996) are a group of Monty Python-esque large green peas with broken French accents who debuted playing the Philistines in Dave and the Giant Pickle. The Peas were then shrunk to a regular pea size and became more of agitating characters rather than menacing. Like the French soldiers in Monty Python and the Holy Grail, the French Peas often torment passersby with strange, nonsensical threats, as seen in Josh and the Big Wall!. The pair narrate the episode Madame Blueberry, calling it a French folk tale. The French Peas should not be confused with the more ordinary peas (see below) who frequently appear as background characters. Phillipe and Jean-Claude have another brother, Cristoffe, who appears infrequently. They also have their own Silly Song "Hopperena" in Twas the Night Before Easter.

Jean-Claude and Phillipe are voiced respectively by Mike Nawrocki and Phil Vischer. Cristoffe is voiced by Chris Olsen, a Big Idea animator until 1998. Numerous other voice actors have played other French Peas including animator Brian K. Roberts.


Qwerty (introduced 1993) is the desktop computer seen on the kitchen counter which Bob and Larry use to read the Bible verse at the end of each show. Qwerty's name is derived from the first six letters that appear on a standard English keyboard. Though Qwerty is not alive per se, it does have certain anthropomorphic characteristics, including responsory noises and voice activation. In (almost) every episode, Bob says "We're over here by Qwerty to talk about what we learned today..." to which voices start to sing the "What We Learned Today" song. Qwerty is not always perfect as in the first episode "Where's God When I'm S-Scared?" when it accidentally posts a meatloaf recipe rather than a Bible verse.

According to Phil Vischer, the original design for Qwerty was an Intel 80386 model computer. Qwerty was slightly updated in Abe and the Amazing Promise, giving two verses instead of one, and got a more "life-changing" update in the episode Pistachio - The Little Boy That Woodn't when it got a voice. The design of the new update, including a black screen instead of the original blue, is reminiscent of an Apple iMac. Because of the location of "The VeggieTales Show", Qwerty is no longer part of the main cast.

Qwerty is voiced by Mike Nawrocki.

Secondary characters[edit]

The Scallions[edit]

The Scallions (introduced 1993) are a trio of often devious green onions who are led by their tallest member simply called Scallion #1. They are among the most consistent antagonists in VeggieTales. They debuted as the Wisemen opposite Larry's "Daniel" in the second act of the video Where's God When I'm S-Scared? (Daniel and the Lions' Den) and later appeared in Are You My Neighbor? as a trio of bandits that rob Larry in "The Story of Flibber-O-Loo" and as the band of bandits who kidnap Little Joe and take him to Dodge Ball City in The Ballad of Little Joe. In the Silly Songs "The Yodeling Veterinarian of the Alps", "Listen", and "A Helping Hand", they along with Frankencelery perform as the quartet singers that narrates the songs. Occasionally, one of the Scallions will make a solo appearance. For example, Scallion #1 appeared as a salesman selling the "Forgive-O-Matic" device in God Wants Me to Forgive Them!?! and as the Englishman/Cedric in King George and the Ducky, and Scallion #3 appeared as the Milk Money Bandit in LarryBoy and the Rumor Weed. None of the Scallions have actual names, which Scallion #1 laments at the end of the Silly Song "Larry's High Silk Hat" from Lyle the Kindly Viking ("I've been around since show one and I still don't have a name").

Scallion #1 is voiced by Phil Vischer, Scallion #2 is voiced by Mike Nawrocki, and Scallion #3 has been voiced by Mike Sage, Brian K. Roberts, and Mike Nawrocki.

Dad and Mom Asparagus[edit]

Junior's father, Dad Asparagus, (introduced 1993) first appeared in Where's God When I'm S-Scared?. He often appears opposite Junior whenever a video requires a father figure. Dad Asparagus is also an astronaut. Seen less often, Junior's Mother, Mom Asparagus (introduced 1993), appears in the traditional mother role supporting Junior and also debuted in Where's God When I'm S-Scared? Dad and Mom Asparagus are also seen together as Reverend Gilbert and his wife alongside Junior in An Easter Carol. They also make individual appearances, Mom as Shack's Mom in Rack Shack and Benny, and Dad Asparagus as himself and the Professor in God Wants Me to Forgive Them!?! among others.

Dad Asparagus is voiced by Dan Anderson in the videos, and by Rob Paulsen in VeggieTales in the House and VeggieTales in the City.

Mom Asparagus has been voiced at various times by Gail Bock, Pamela Thomas, and Lisa Vischer in the videos, and by Tress MacNeille from the VeggieTales in the House series.


Scooter (introduced 1995), a carrot with a Scottish accent, first appeared as the engineer of the "USS Applepies" (a spoof of Scotty from the original Star Trek television series) in "The Gourds Must Be Crazy" section of Are You My Neighbor? Scooter is seen as an Israelite in Josh and the Big Wall! and as Horatio the baker in the Omelet segment of Lyle the Kindly Viking and has a recurring role as a police officer in the LarryBoy episodes. He returned as the USS Applepies' engineer in the video Veggies in Space: The Fennel Frontier.

Scooter is voiced by Jim Poole.

Phil Winkelstein[edit]

Phil Winkelstein (introduced 1993) first appears in Where's God When I'm S-Scared? as Frankencelery, a character in a veggie horror film of the same name. Hailing from Toledo, Ohio, Winkelstein is a mild-mannered celery stalk with a high-pitched voice who resembles the classic Frankenstein's monster, purple eyelids, cervical electrodes, black hair, and a unibrow, outside of his acting career. Winkelstein also sings the bass part of the quartet singers with the Scallions in The Yodeling Veterinarian of the Alps, "Listen" from "Larry Learns to Listen", and "A Helping Hand" from "Bob Lends a Helping Hand". He also appeared as a background citizen of Bumblyburg in Larry-Boy and the Fib from Outer Space!.

Phil Winkelstein is voiced by Phil Vischer.

The Green Onions (introduced between 1996) consist of daughter Annie, her two parents, and Grandpa George. Grandpa George was the first Green Onion to be seen and made his debut in Rack, Shack, and Benny as the chocolate factory's security guard as well as the episode narrator and has similar recurring roles as a narrator of VeggieTales episodes. Annie first appeared in The Toy That Saved Christmas, alongside Grandpa George who appears as a postman, and it is revealed that they are related. Annie's parents first appeared, alongside Annie, in Madame Blueberry playing poor French green onions. Annie also appeared alongside Larry on the sink counter along with Petunia, and in place of Bob, in Sweetpea Beauty.

Annie Onion has been voiced by Shelby Vischer, Phil Vischer's daughter, Allie Nawrocki, Mike Nawrocki's daughter, and is currently voiced by Maggie Roberts, Brian Roberts's daughter. Annie's parents are voiced by Phil and Lisa Vischer. Grandpa George is voiced by Phil Vischer.

Miss Achmetha[edit]

Miss Achmetha (introduced 2000) is a green onion or a scallion who made her first appearance singing the song Lost Puppies in Esther... The Girl Who Became Queen. Miss Achmetha is known for her constantly twitching eye, her somewhat confused or annoyed demeanor, and her accordion, which she sometimes plays during her singing roles. She also appears in speaking and non-speaking parts in Silly Songs including "SUV", "Larry's High Silk Hat" and "Bellybutton".

Miss Achmetha is voiced by Charlotte Jackson in the direct-to-video series, Gail Freeman-Bock in Jonah: A VeggieTales Movie, and Elise Napier in The VeggieTales Show.


Khalil (introduced 2002) is a caterpillar with an Indian accent who first appeared in Jonah: A VeggieTales Movie as a rug salesman and foil/conscience to Jonah. He corresponds to the worm in the book of Jonah that kills Jonah's shade plant. He was then heard to voice Lutfi in the fanciful "flannel-graph" of Saint Patrick, the opening element of the episode Sumo of the Opera. He was also the secondary character in the video Pistachio. He also has a reoccurring role in the "Boyz in the Sink" Silly Songs. Khalil returns in the series The VeggieTales Show and plays music in the orchestra pit.

Khalil is voiced by Tim Hodge.


Ichabeezer (introduced 2014) is the grumpy zucchini neighbor to Bob and Larry in the VeggieTales in the House and VeggieTales in the City series on Netflix. Ichabeezer is used on the Netflix series in essentially the same manner as Mr. Nezzer is in the video series - as either the gruff, semi-villain or as the vaguely simple-minded authority figure in the stories.

Ichabeezer is voiced by Rob Paulsen.

Minor characters[edit]

Archibald's Wife[edit]

Archibald's Wife (introduced 1994) is an asparagus like her husband and first appeared in Larry's Lagoon as "Lovey" (with Archibald and his wife as a clear allusion to Mr. and Mrs. Howell from Gilligan's Island). She returned soon after as the Flibbian doctor in The Story of Flibber-O-Loo. She is usually cast alongside Archibald in a supporting role and is differentiated from Mom Asparagus by a longer nose and a British accent similar to Archibald's.

Archibald's Wife is voiced by Gail Bock.

The Peas[edit]

Not to be confused with the French Peas, the Peas (introduced 1995) consist of Percy Pea, Li'l Pea, and other peas that are only seen in a group of other Veggies as background characters. The Peas first appear as background characters in Rack, Shack, and Benny. They also star as the monks alongside Pa Grape in Lyle the Kindly Viking. In Dave and the Giant Pickle and Josh and the Big Wall, Percy and other peas appear as the Israelites. The entire family is seen in The Toy That Saved Christmas where Percy and Li'l Pea receive their first speaking parts. Percy and Li'l Pea see their largest roles in Larry-Boy! And the Fib from Outer Space!, Larry-Boy and the Rumor Weed and "Bully Trouble" (from Minnesota Cuke and the Search for Samson's Hairbrush).

Phil Vischer voices Percy Pea. Leslie Benodin (1996–1999) and Mike Nawrocki voice Li'l Pea (1999–present).

Grandma Gourd[edit]

Grandma Gourd (introduced 2004) is a yellow gourd who has appeared in several episodes as a minor/background character. Grandma Gourd first appeared in Sumo of the Opera as a woman beating the Italian Scallion (Larry the Cucumber) over the head with her cane and had several other non-speaking roles in subsequent episodes. Her roles became slightly larger starting in 2010 with a minor speaking part in Pistachio - The Little Boy That Woodn't as a bookseller, as Mrs. Josephson in It's a Meaningful Life, as Miss Lewis in Robin Good and The Not-So-Merry Men and as Old Mother Hubbard (Goldilocks (Laura Carrot)'s mother) in "The Good Egg of Gooseville" portion of the Little House That Stood.

Grandma Gourd is voiced by Keri Pisapia.

Ma Grape[edit]

Ma Grape (introduced 1994) is a grape with a Southern accent and Pa Grape's wife. Ma Grape made her first appearance in God Wants Me to Forgive Them!?! along with the rest of her family. She has since appeared in some episodes from the late 2000s to the early 2010s, such as the non-speaking role of Jethro's wife in Moe and the Big Exit, and as Sarah in Abe and the Amazing Promise.

Ma Grape was voiced by Heidi Landis in her debut episode, and by Delilah Rene in Abe and the Amazing Promise.[6]

Tom Grape[edit]

Tom Grape (introduced 1994) is a grape with a Southern accent and Pa Grape's son. Tom made his first appearance in God Wants Me to Forgive Them!?! along with the rest of his family.

Charlie Pincher is voiced by Tim Hodge.

The Peach[edit]

The Peach (introduced 1995) first appears in the Silly Song The Hairbrush Song and appears to have no actual name as he is only ever referred to by the rest of the cast as "the peach". He later appeared in the Oh, Santa! Silly Song in which he played an IRS agent. The running joke about the Peach is that he, unlike most of the other characters, has hair. He was thus the obvious choice to play Samson in Minnesota Cuke and the Search for Samson's Hairbrush, however, he is seen only in still pictures throughout the episode. His latest appearance in a speaking role was as a mall employee in Merry Larry and the True Light of Christmas.

The Peach is voiced by Mike Nawrocki.
