Biography

Mr. Blobby is a fictional character who featured on Noel Edmonds’ Saturday night entertainment show Noel’s House Party, which was often a ratings winner in the 1990s. He was designed as an outrageously over the top parody of a one-dimensional, mute novelty character, which ironically made him distinctive, absurd and popular. He was a large pink humanoid, covered with yellow spots, sporting a permanent toothy grin and jiggling eyes. He communicated by saying the word “blobby” in an electronically-altered voice, expressing his moods through tone of voice and repetition.

The Mr. Blobby spoof theme song “Mr. Blobby” was released as a single, and hit #1 on the UK top 40 charts. On Dec 11 1993, it hit #1, replacing Meat Loaf’s “I’d Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That)” which had been in the #1 spot for 7 weeks. A week later, “Babe” by Take That bumped it off #1, but only for a week. It returned to the #1 spot on the charts on Christmas Day and remained for another 2 weeks. The song also became the first to return to the top the No1 position since 1968. The single later received the dubious honour of being voted the most annoying Christmas #1 single according to the yearly HMV poll.

    'fake' (?) children's character elevated to near-christ status by children's choir and passionate vocal solos. one of the most profound/insane cultural artifacts i've ever stumbled across

    I'm still trying to locate the limited edition white label of Mr Blobby's song (instrumental goa mix), featuring free style mcing by PM Dawn and Shabba Ranks. PM me if you managed to grab a copy from Black Market when it was released back in 92. PLUR.
