Khalil

Khalil (mistakenly called "Carlyle" by Jonah) is a recurring character from VeggieTales. He made his debut appearance in Jonah: A VeggieTales Movie.

Physical Appearance

Khalil is a half caterpillar and half worm. He has black hair, black eyes, and a black mustache. His body is blue-pale, and he wears a red vest.

Development

Khalil is based after the worm who ate the plant God gave to Jonah when he watches over Nineveh. Phil's original concept of Khalil was to be just a worm like in the original story, but disliked it after seeing concept art as he looked too much like a snake. So they changed it to a caterpillar, though they kept the worm concept as he's a hybrid.
