—the Vegetable Gremlin burps after drinking vegetable DNA.
The Vegetable Gremlin was a mutated gremlin at Clamp Center.
He's the first Gremlin to become a mutant gremlin, and he changed into a creature of living vegetation after drinking vegetable DNA, after he mistook it for juice. As a result from drinking the vegetable serum, he's very prone to be belching a lot.
After his mutation, he's one of the first Gremlins to show up in the Clamp Center's main lobby, he popped up from the salad bar, and then he attacked a man. Due to being riddled with vegetables all over his body, for example, he had salad ears and carrot fingers, and then a gremlin dressed as a waiter's shown picking small vegetables off his body to use in drinks, and it showed that the other gremlins were using him almost like a walking vegetable stand. But he presumably died at the end of the film along with the most of other Gremlins (except Greta) when they all got electrocuted by the Electric Gremlin.
- There were several scenes with him filmed, but most of them were cut out from the film, but they're available to watch in the Additional Scenes featurette on the DVD (which he's actually the deleted scenes):
- There's a deleted scene of the Vegetable Gremlin and Microwave Marge. While everyone's running out of Clamp Center, then Marge stopped and looked at the Vegetable Gremlin. Then she picked up a drinking glass, and then picked a vegetable off him, and she plopped it in her drink. Then she's about to take a sip, before she realized and she ran away screaming from the Vegetable Gremlin.
- Another deleted scene shown another gremlin who's pouring lots of condiments on the Vegetable Gremlin while the cook gremlin was trying to make a meal out of the Vegetable gremlin. Then another scene, shown a squirrel eating an acorn while standing on the Vegetable Gremlin's head when the gremlins were opening cages to take out the animals.
