Mr Blobby
BlobbyProud.jpeg Mr. Blobby was a fictional character featured on Noel Edmonds' Saturday night entertainment show Noel's House Party, which was often a ratings winner in the 1990s. He was a tall, fat humanoid, pink with yellow spots, a permanent toothy grin and jiggling eyes, in other words he was perfection, he communicated by saying the word "blobby" in an electronically-altered voice, expressing his moods through tone of voice and repetition. Mr. Blobby started out as part of the 'Gotcha' feature of the show (originally called 'Gotcha Oscars' until the threat of legal action from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences), in which celebrities were caught out in a Candid Camera style prank. Celebrities such as dancer Wayne Sleep and rugby player Will Carling would be enticed to take part in a fictitious children's programme based around their profession. Mr. Blobby would clumsily take part in the activity, knocking over the set, causing mayhem and saying "blobby blobby blobby", until finally when the prank was revealed, the Blobby costume would be opened - revealing Noel inside. This was all the more surprising for the "victim" as during rehearsals Blobby would be played by an actor wearing only the arms and legs of the costume and speaking in a normal manner.
