|Voiced by||Ringo Starr (1984) and Phil Vischer (1993)|
Archibald "Archie" Asparagus has a taste for "class" and wants more than anything to turn the usually wacky VeggieTales into a more highbrow production. Archibald was inspired by the Monty Python's Flying Circus character, The Colonel, a stuffy army officer, who occasionally appeared out of nowhere to order the end of a sketch. He has a wife, which he calls "Lovey."
His 3D-animated depiction has remained generally the same over the years, except that the vectors have become less-sharp with rising CG technology. He also had a side-mouth in earlier shows. He wears a light gray monocle and a red bowtie. The glass was added when they started using Maya. Archibald first appeared in Where's God When I'm S-Scared? as an interrupter in the Silly Song, The Waterbuffalo Song and King Darius in Daniel and the Lion's Den.
His favorite television show is Etiquette Junction. His favorite food is roast beef and Yorkshire pudding. His favorite form of transportation is surrey. His favorite pasttime is croquet. His favorite movie quote is "God bless us, everyone." from A Christmas Carol. If he wasn't an actor, he would be an efficiency expert. He describes himself as tall, dark and grammatically-precise.
Archibald was the main singer in the song called The Biscuit of Zazzamarandabo. Archibald is the main character in Jonah: A VeggieTales Movie and a butler in The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything: A VeggieTales Movie. Archibald, who has a British accent, is somewhat of a nerd. He often plays leaders of the stories, such as King Darius, the Mayor of Flibber-o-Loo, King Saul, and Alfred. He is eccentric, to say the least. He is voiced by Phil Vischer.
