A Reminder That Mr Blobby Was Fucking Terrifying
The '90s were a creepier time.
Anyone who grew up watching British TV in the '90s probably knows this guy: Mr Blobby.
You may remember him from Noel's House Party, where he'd playfully assault a pre-Deal or No Deal Noel Edmonds.
But there's a good chance you might remember him from somewhere else: YOUR NIGHTMARES.
Because seriously, Mr Blobby was goddamn terrifying.
And I'm clearly not the only one who thinks so.
It's over two decades since I was first traumatised by the creature and I still have so many questions.
Like what the hell was he? The closest thing I can find in nature is a blobfish.
What thoughts and motivations hid lurking behind those cold, dead eyes?
Who decided to give this evil hellspawn teeth capable of devouring children???
Just as creepy were the dozens of cheap, shoddy fancy dress costumes that the character spawned.
"I saw the face of God and it was weeping."
These are worthy of a post of their own.
This is what greets you at the gates of Hell.
But if it helps you sleep any better here's a photo of the actual guy under the costume, Barry Killerby.
A message from everyone who grew up in the '90s: Fuck you Mr Blobby. Fuck you.
