Archie is an inventor. When bubbles started to block the view of the lake's bed, he came up with a machine to clear the bubbles out. He appears to be friends with some sort of giant squid.
Well hello there! Come to check out my latest invention? Oh what fun! Step right up and give it a try, you won't be disappointed.
Hey you! Care to give Mr Squiddy and I a hand clearing out these bubbles? I'll even let you try out my new bubble shooting contraption!
