What are you waiting for? GO!

I am a caterpillar. Well, that's not entirely true. My mother was a caterpillar, my father was a worm, but I'm okay with that now.
~ Khalil introducing himself to Jonah.
I wanted to be big and important, just like you! But the world doesn't need more people who are "big and important"... The world needs more people who are nice and compassionate.. And merciful! That's what I want to be. You can find yourself a new traveling buddy. Goodbye.
~ Khalil to Jonah before he abandoned him.

Khalil is the deuteragonist of Jonah: A VeggieTales Movie.

He is voiced by Tim Hodge.


He is a blue half worm, half caterpillar.


Khalil is a friendly animal who is very nice to Jonah. He seems to know Jonah somehow, as he had many things based on Jonah. He aids Jonah to his adventure to Nineveh so Jonah can send God's message to the Ninevites. However, in the end of the film, Khalil abandons Jonah due to his actions of being pathetic.


Jonah: A VeggieTales Movie

After Jonah leaving port, a guilt-stricken Jonah goes below deck to rest where he meets a salesman caterpillar named Khalil, who agrees to go with Jonah to sell his merchandise. The Pirates attempt to reel Jonah back in, but before they can do so, Jonah is swallowed by a giant whale. The pirates attempt to attack the whale using a cannon with cannonballs and a bowling ball as ammo, but the whale merely swallows the ball (which Khalil is hiding in), disgorges Jonah's lifebelt, and swims away.

Inside the whale's stomach, Khalil finds a grieving Jonah and the pair are soon visited by a host of God's angels, who explain that if Jonah repents, God will grant him a second chance. Upon repenting, Jonah and Khalil are spit up onto the shore, where they ride Jonah's camel Reginald to Nineveh. Jonah watches and waits from a distance in the hot sun. God provides a plant to shade Jonah, only for Khalil to eat a single leaf off the plant, which kills it. Jonah laments the dead plant, and Khalil is disappointed Jonah shows compassion for a plant, but not the Ninevites. Khalil then tries to explain God is compassionate and merciful and that he wants to give everyone, both Israelites and non-Israelites, a second chance. Jonah refuses to accept this and states it would be better if he was dead. The story ends with Khalil and Reginald leaving Jonah to his sulking.

The film ends with a song and the surprise arrival of the tow truck driver, who is none other than Khalil.


He was then heard to voice Lutfi in the fanciful "flannel-graph" of Saint Patrick, the opening element of the episode Sumo of the Opera. He was also the secondary character in the video Pistachio. He also has a reoccurring role in the "Boyz in the Sink" Silly Songs.


  • He speaks in Indian accent.
