Voice Actor Mike Nawrocki

Henry is a character in VeggieTales. He is a potato who works as a coal miner in West Virginia, described as a laid-back but feisty potato.

His first appearance is in God Wants Me To Forgive Them!?! in the advertisement for the Forgive-O-Matic. He mentions the good quality of the Ginsu 2 steak knives that come with an order for a Forgive-O-Matic, stating that he was using them for coal mining, digging two miles through solid granite with one Ginsu knife, and that they were "still going strong."

It is unknown whether or not this is true, or even if Henry is really a coal miner. It can also be shown by Henry's movement that he is scripted for the advertisement, reading something held off-screen.

Afterwards Henry makes a brief appearance as a singing Flibbian in Are You My Neighbor?.


Henry is a potato. He does not have visable eyes. Henry wears a black coal miner hat. In Bob and Larry's ABCs, Henry can be seen wearing patched underwear.




  • Like Pa Grape, Henry comes from West Virginia.
  • There is a family of Spanish potatoes who appear in "The Song of the Cebu." Though they have the same model of Henry, he is not a part of the family, as he is not Spanish.
  • Most fans think he was redesigned as Po-Ta-To. This was confirmed to be untrue.
