Mr. Lunt is a recurring character in VeggieTales. Like most villains from the series he does not always play evil roles, but still plays them for the most part. He often plays assistants to Mr. Nezzar, and as these Nezzars usually become redeemed, Mr. Lunt would go another Mr. Nezzar character who would also become redeemed, making him a character that technically isn't redeemed in those canons.

Popularity

He would seem to be a hated character as unlike Mr. Nezzar, he usually isn't redeemed in the roles he plays, but he is actually mostly remembered by fans as not a villain, but the character who sang the fan favorite song "His Cheeseburger" which was such a beloved song in the show that it surpassed his roles that he usually plays.

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 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. Also, he no longer has a gold tooth.
