The portly butler to the Lodge Mansion and the servant who appears most often.
A running gag is how Archie annoys Smithers as much as he annoys Mr. Lodge, and
Smithers takes great pleasure in throwing Archie out of the house. Despite his
frustration with Archies clumsiness, he remains faithful to the Lodges.
Sometimes he calls Veronicas friends Master Archie, Miss Betty, etc, while
other times he calls them simply by their first names and applies the formality
only to the Lodges. Once, when his nephew visited him, his first name was
revealed to be Hubert. In older comics, he was referred to as Jeeves.
In one Little Archie story, Mr. Lodge told how he and Smithers were childhood
friends, and Smithers Sr. was the family butler. Back then, Mr. Lodge called him
by the nickname Smitty.
