Verne is one of the main characters in Over the Hedge. He is the leader of the foragers and an easygoing, overly cautious, and "naturally tentative" box turtle. He is voiced by Garry Shandling.

Personality

Verne is "naturally tentative" box turtle, who is the leader of the foragers. He does not have much emotion when he talks. He has his own ways of doing the daily tasks which everyone else goes for, but his world is turned upside down when RJ introduces his chaotic lifestyle into the mix. He never really trusted RJ (and he was kind of right for not trusting him). He is genuinely caring for his family and will do anything to protect them. He is best known for his "tingling" tail when a situation is not right, he uses that as a sign to back off. After RJ saves them at the end, he gives up his place as leader to RJ whom he has finally accepted into their family.

Trivia

  • A running gag in the film is that Verne is constantly being mistaked for an amphibian.
  • Verne's shell is also capable of coming off his body, continously showing his butt (another gag in the film).
  • Originally, Verne was going to be voiced by Harold Ramis.
