Mr. Lunt
  • Species: Gourd
  • Gender: Male
  • Hair color: Black (originally Brown)
  • Age: 36

Mr. Lunt is one of the main characters from VeggieTales. He is usually paired up with Mr. Nezzer.

Bio

In his first appearance, he worked alongside Mr. Nezzer at his chocolate factory, and follows every order he tells him to do. He later worked for his brother in Dinkletown when they planned to produce the Buzz-Saw Louie toys.

Physical Appearance

Mr. Lunt is a yellow decorative gourd with a moustache. He often wears a beige safari-like hat and uses the brim for expression. In the Netflix series, he looks relatively the same, but now wears a white suit and has an additional goatee, and he no longer has a gold tooth. He changed back to his normal design for The VeggieTales Show, albeit with his hat's brim being changed to a light beige color.

Fun Facts

  • He has an Italian or Hispanic accent.
  • According to Phil Vischer, Mr. Lunt was loosely based on and inspired by the Weasels of Judge Doom’s Toon Patrol in the animated-live action hybrid film "Who Framed Roger Rabbit".
    • Vischer has also stated Lunt’s name comes from the name of an actual street located in Chicago: West Lunt Avenue.
  • In almost every show he's in, Mr. Lunt has kept a mustache. The only exceptions are in Going Up! and Lord of the Beans.
  • He is the only main character to have crossdressed for roles he’s played.
  • Much like Pa Grape, he is one of the few characters to not have any visible eyes.
    • During the pre-production of Big Idea's second feature film, Mr. Lunt's outfit was initially designed to more closely resemble his classic pirate attire with his forehead covered. Universal Pictures' executives requested that Lunt would be given eyes to let him show more emotion as a character. After having artists experiment with various concept sketches of him with eyes, the Big Idea team ultimately found the designs uncanny and very unappealing. In the end, it was decided Mr. Lunt did not need any eyes for the film.
  • In Mr. Lunt's own love song His Cheeseburger, it was revealed that Mr. Lunt doesn't have any eyes whatsoever.
  • Phil stated on Twitter that the backstory of Mr. Lunt's golden tooth was that "it was part of his gangster outfit (even in his debut appearance) and it stayed with him."
  • It is unclear if Mr. Lunt has a first name. At one point, a fan asked Phil on Twitter about Mr. Lunt's first name, guessing it to be "Karl". Phil replied, liking the idea, but said it's probably just "Mister".
