The City Folk are vegetable people from the Big City, seen in Tome of the Unknown.


All the members of the City Folk are different vegetables similar to one of the main characters of Tome of the Unknown, John Crops. The most notable of the City Folk is Cabbage Gal, the love interest of John Crops who is a cabbage. Other characters from the City Folk group include these vegetables in the designs.

  • Corn on the cob (Twice)
  • Egg Plant
  • Carrot
  • Tomato
  • Potato
  • Cabbage (Cabbage Gal)
  • Broccoli
  • Tomato
  • Watermelon
  • Turnip
  • White Radish
  • Onion(2)
  • Cauliflower

It should be noted that that list only includes the heads of the characters, the rest of their bodies are comprised of different vegetables and nuts.


The City Folk are seen celebrating around a small gazebo as a band plays. They seem to be possibly celebrating their harvest. While they're celebrating John Crops, Wirt, Greg, Beatrice, and Jason Funderburker arrive. They join the celebration and John Crops meets Cabbage Gal. When the guitar player (Corn on the cob) starts to turn into popped corn he is unable to play. John Crops is encouraged by the other characters to play with the band in his place. The City Folk are later attacked by a murder of crows, and they panic as the crows land to try and find food. Greg later saves the day and scares the crows away by screaming at the sight of a goose (which he had been looking for).


  • The Corn on the Cob is humorously seen popping into pop corn.
  • Corn on the Cob seems to be the only vegetable that is repeatedly used in the character designs by a Male and Female character.
