Archibald Asparagus (introduced 1993) appears in the stereotypical role of a stuffy, classically-educated "adult" contrasting with the rest of his co-stars. Archibald has a pronounced British accent and a monocle, with a demeanor similar to Graham Chapman's sergeant-major character from Monty Python's Flying Circus or Sam the Eagle from The Muppet Show. In earlier shows, Archibald had a more pronounced British accent with a side-mouth and no glass in his monocle, but the glass was added when the VeggieTales animators started using Maya software. Archibald first appeared in Where's God When I'm S-Scared?, where he played King Darius in the Daniel and the Lion's Den segment and interrupted the Silly Song, The Water Buffalo Song. Archibald has a reoccurring role as Larry-Boy's butler, Alfred. He also sang the Silly Song, The Biscuit of Zazzamarandabo and was the title character in Jonah: A VeggieTales Movie. Contrasting with some of the other Veggies, Archie's 3D-animated depiction has remained generally the same over the years, except that the vectors have become less sharp with rising CG technology.
Archibald is voiced by VeggieTales co-creator Phil Vischer.
