Archie Kelly was a kid who only appeared in the first book. He was one of the tree actors in the Wizard of Oz play in early December. He tripped over Rodney James and chipped a tooth during rehearsals, so Mrs. Norton allowed the trees to have arm holes. When the forest scene began, Manny yelled "Bubby!" at Greg (a mispronunciation of "brother"). To not get teased, Greg redirected his name into Archie when an apple fell down from Archie's costume, saying "I think you dropped an apple, Bubby.", so everybody thought Manny was referring to Archie with it. Later on at school, some older kids teased him near his locker room, ending Greg's predicament.
