Specifically let's create a stat-block for a horrifying eldritch abomination that takes the form of once-loathed 90's British Telly character Mr Blobby, stalks children and Celebrities and [REDACTED] them.The sort of thing that Call of Cthulhu Investigators or an SCP MTF might find themselves up against. CoC, Free League Alien RPG and Dark Heresy would be awesome.Let's see if /tg/ does indeed still Get Shit Done.
i like the idea of people surrounding the conflict to become enamored with the clown and dawn make up and join the fray against the players
>>79831083What is this thing, and why are we talking about it right now?
>>79831083i'd use him as some kind of monsterous pit beast used as a mount by noel edmonds
>>79831083>once-loathedI've never seen that thing before and I already loath it.
>>79831083>>79831083MR.Blobby has a domain you know.it was a short lived amusement park that failed to make its money back. its still there but abandoned
>>79831229CoC adventure.>PCs are British Police in present day setting>PCs get a call from a concerned citizen about yet another illegal rave at the sight of the old Crinkley Bottom amusement park.>Department policy is to look the other way unless things really get out of hand, but his time the caller said the music stopped abruptly and they heard what sounded like screams of terror.>Arrive at Crinkley Bottom, find the site of the old Dunblobbin section of the park.>There is evidence of recent human activity. A laptop and speakers are set up for an illegal rave. Whiskey bottles and drug paraphernalia openly displayed. Signs of a struggle. The laptop screen is shattered, whiskey bottles scattered everywhere as are what look like dimebags of black tar heroin.>No one is there, the place is eerily silent.>Suddenly you realize your radios aren't working. The signal from dispatch sounds distant, distorted like it's coming in too slowly.>Just then, a figure appears. At first it looks like a guy in a Mr Blobby costume. Just about the time you notice the suit is spattered with blood, it opens its mouth revealing two rows of jagged, razor-sharp fangs and rushes you screaming "BLOBBY! BLOBBY! BLOBBY! BLOBBY!"
>>79831488TFW you don't carry a gun because you're a Britbong.
>>79834195> Tfw you have to defeat Mr Blobby with butter knives and acid
>>79831167A fake kids mascot made to be too disturbing for kids. Being british however, the kids actually fucking loved it and he went from ironic joke to unironic pop culture icon
>>79834252>tfw your knoife loicence expired last week and you're still waiting for the replacement to arrive in the post
>>79831488Oh no, no fangs. He charges, tackles, hugs and ENGULFS, like a howling bespotted shoggoth. Once it has gained sufficient mass, it divides like an amoeba, making two bloblings equal in size to the original. Perhaps some remnant of the victim remains, explaining the occasional Mrs Blobbys and Baby Blobbys, but that is too terrible a thought to comtemplate.
>>79831488>>79836719This is the kind of cursed shit that I'm here for.
>>79831083Jesus fucking Christ, I thought I'd never have to see that again. I don't know if I should drink until I black out or try and avoid sleeping.
Reminder that this was a christmas #1https://youtu.be/rNkgDJpcuwU
>>79831147Blobby's power is the bewitch a segment of his audience. 99% believe they're enjoying Blobby "ironically" but some take the fandom much farther. As Blobby's influence grows, his appearances take on the character of a bachannalia. People go missing.Casual fans are undisturbed by the violence, and decry blobby's detractors as laughable wingnuts. People who claim their loved ones disappeared are mocked as Qanon tier wackjobs.
>>79831147>>79838242That is perfect a significant portion of the people who view a mr. Blobby attack find it funny even if it is he's absorbing people or eating them alive. They claim to find his Antics funny in an "ironic" way even as he's severely injuring and killing people in front of them.Have the player characters be immune to his effects for some reason.I'm just imagining a laughing parent telling their child "let mr. Blobby give you a hug" after just finished devouring said child's best friend.
>>79839981If you can get past security, and the throngs of fans, you can easily get to Mr. Blobby and tear him to pieces. Even with your bare hands. He appears to be an empty rubber suit. You'll be reviled by his fans and made a laughingstock in viral videos. Probably fired from your job and subjected to random attacks on the street. What kind of asshole hates Mr. Blobby?A new Mr. Blobby always replaces him.Perhaps you can find where they make Mr. Blobby
>>79840038I wonder what Noel Edmunds place in all this was- creator, unwitting pawn or willing collaborator? He'd be an obvious person to go to for answers
>>79843164He merely gave it a form and shape through the mascot. "Mr. Blobby" is something old and very powerful that's always been here. Just waiting for the right mold to slip into so it could give us all a hug. One big choking suffocating hug for all eternity. No death, no life. Just forever as a part of Mr. Blobby.
So ends a legend.
>>79831083>See thread title and picture>Expect fun>Notice OPs text>See how anons see Mr BlobbyHe's so hilarious though.
>>79843806He really fucking isn't, holy fuck.
https://youtu.be/pPrcr5Mj4y0?t=15the screamingthat's not edited, that's just what it doesthat's how it sounds
>>79831083Mr Blobby is a shoggoth pretending to be a man and I will not be persuaded otherwise.
>>79831083I always imagined Mr blobby as a kind of collosal flesh mound, the icon of devotion for a deranged cult, created by Blobby's representative on earth, Noel Edmonds.I'd say blobby would look like a mix between a sarlac pit and those insanely obese people.
Mr Blobby has to be the most terrifying thing the British have ever come up with.
>>79844264he was a joke that went too far
>>79836587Leaving aside how I may feel about the particulars of the performance, the physical skill of the actor in the suit is something to behold.
i genuinely have no idea how anyone can find Mr. blobby truly frightening. he's just some little gremlin making weird noises.
>stat me thread>grade school mascot that Brits are horrified of for some reason >Let's see if /tg/ does indeed still Get Shit Done.Can't believe this shit worked lmao.
>>79844989>he's just some little gremlin making weird noises.He's well over 6ft.
Those ice cream vans and fairground rides with the badly painted renditions of Mickley Mouse etc of Mr Bobby are horrific. There's one near me that gave me nightmares as a kid, it felt like Mr Blobby's eviler twin.
>>79845036>grade school mascotkind of? he's an intentional parody of one designed to be very weird, off putting and annoying.
>>79845095but you get my point right? he's just stupidly funny instead of actually horrifying, yet people seem to act as if he's some sort of hellspawn.
>>79845036>grade school mascotI think you are missing what makes Mr Blobby simultaneously so irritating and horrifying.Imagine a character who is designed as a parody of Children's television mascots. One who is intentionally designed be as terrifying and stupid-looking as possible and sent in to act like a complete dick to prank celebrities. Then imagine that the rightsholders of said parody character decide that he is ACTUALLY popular with children and he starts showing up fucking EVERYWHERE including unscripted public appearances where he acts like a huge dick to members of the general public.That's why Brits went from liking Mr Blobby as a wacky ironic joke to absolutely hating him all within a year and a half.
>>79845412It had it's own theme parkhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crinkley_Bottom
>>79845378It's the other half of the joke.
>>79845378>he's just stupidly funny instead of actually horrifying[citation_fucking_needed]
>>79845514See>>79831488Crinkley Bottom is still there. It's abandoned now. This whole thing is like a creepypasta come to life.
>>79845580>It's>singularNo. There were three of them.
>>79845590Are all three abandoned?
>>79846096Yes. I think one was shut down when a kid died there, or I'm remembering it wrong.
>>79846981>A theme park dedicated to this horrifying character was shut down after a KID DIEDJESUS TAPDANCING CHRIST this Mr Blobby-shaped rabbit hole just keeps going.
>>79847610Its not far from me. I may have to visit one day
>>79831083Did anyone else go to Blobby Land?
>>79848058Well that's what I get for posting before reading the thread.
>>79847964Tie a length of string to somewhere outside the area of effect before going in.Carry a magnet.
>>79831167A mascot that was made up as a prank for a British TV show to troll some celebs, with a falsified history and to basically wreak havoc. He was deliberately designed to be as unpleasant and unlikable as possible, but ended up famous.
>>79848034Not gonna lie, abandoned theme parks reclaimed by nature are comfy as fuck.
>>79849083Why a magnet?
>>79844737Honestly one of my favorite physical comedy performances in years.
>>79850032They use magnetism to navigate. It makes them aware of you so you don't startle them but also means they won't want to get too close to you as it makes them blind(?) if you can call it that.
>>79845378>stupidly funnyAnon I was not laughing when I first saw this thing. I was morbidly curious and then I was just flat out horrified. It's an awful abomination and the British are awful people for allowing it to get as far as it did.
>>79850227The Blobbies you see "in the wild" as it were are really more like organs of a singlar, central organism. There's a large mass at the center (?) of each Blobbyland. The interior is a non-Euclidean space so I can't say for certain weather or not it truly HAS a center, but that might be the best way to think about it.The mass is this constantly undulating and shifting mass of yellow-splotched pink flesh. Blobbies are constantly budding off the main mass then being re-absorbed once they have completed their tasks. Don't worry they aren't a hive mind. Each Blobby is given whatever information is needed to complete its task, then when it returns to the mass, that information is re-absorbed along with the body.If one of them spots you, however you MUST either terminate it before it returns to the mass or get the hell out of there.
>>79847610Noel Edmonds had a real body count for a British celeb. They did the "LOL bungee cord broke" gag on a member of the public and killed them on his previous show.
my favorite threads introduce me to new aspects of the world I didn't even know about(and if I had been born in my ancestral homeland I would have been right there in this mess)bless this thread
>>79846981So you're saying they're LITERALLY cursed?
>>79836587>>79844154You know what really gets me as a yank watching these clips?Mr Blobby's voice.Listen closely, really closely. I'm telling you he sounds EXACTLY LIKE the RAPE ORCS FROM TAIMANIN ASAGI.Great, now I will never unhear that.
>>79847964This looks like a goddamn SCP. It's like the house has tumours.
>>79850718At least one is. Maybe. I could be thinking of the bungee jump accident.
>>79850227Demolition elves. The place is lousy with them.
>>79851188Demolition Elf sightings are almost always fleeting and singular. What's weird is how Demolition Elves are drawn to the Blobbylands on an almost continual basis. Is it just the sheer number of people absorbed by the Blobbies or is it something else? Some kind of symbiosis perhaps?
>>79851351They witness the ruination of things.
>>79843709>it shed it's skin
>>79843709It's now assumed human form, be wary.
>>79847964>>79848034Where's that creepypasta video of Blobbyland?
>>79846981>>79847610I don't think anyone officially died at a park (though yes, a bungee jump stunt did kill someone on one of Noel Edmunds shows), but one of the parks was only open for 13 weeks and cost the local council millions. Its frankly unbelievable.https://www.lancs.live/news/lancashire-news/blobbygate-story-morecambes-crinkley-bottom-19669180Also note: at least one of these parks had a wildlife preserve, so you could also be attacked by poorly treated elephants and even in 2009 there were apparently "tigers mincing around"https://www.28dayslater.co.uk/threads/the-grail-of-all-explorations-crinkly-bottom.39411/
>>79857440The more I learn, the more cursed this shit becomes.
>>79857566And you haven't even listened to 1993's platinum selling Christmas #1!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rNkgDJpcuwU>An MTV critic said that Blobby "tried to kill music... with what might be the worst song of all time"; the track is often named as such. Rupert Hawksley of The Telegraph ranked it as the worst Christmas number one in history, arguing that Blobby "set the bar so low with this bizarre single, it's hard to imagine that it could ever be usurped". Daily Record writer Euan McColm named it the third-worst Top 10 single of all time. It placed first in an HMV public poll of the worst-ever festive songs, and second in a VH1 viewer survey of the worst number one singles of all time. The track also came sixth in a Channel 4 poll of the 100 worst pop songs in history.Or maybe the album would be more your speed? Something to really get into, focus, let the melodies swirl around https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mm8Epcq1aRU

>>79867301I'm not terribly familiar with CoC, is there a fear component to the statblock to go with sanity loss?
>>79869842Usually there is. I'm not familiar with 7e, New Delta green but in earlier editions of CoC you had 2 numbers or dice codes separated by a slash.like 0/1d10or 1d10/1d100Basically when you see or otherwise perceive something horrifying or otherworldly you roll 1d100 and compare that number to your character's Sanity score. If you roll lower than your SAN, you pass and reduce your Sanity by the first number. If you rolled higher, you fail and reduce SAN by the second number.Extreme nasties like Cthulhu himself have Sanity loss weather your pass or fail. Yes the second example is Sanity loss for seeing an Elder God and yes that is a loss of 1d100 SANITY. It is entirely possible to roll so badly your character instantly goes permanently insane just from seeing Cthulhu once.
Noel will pay and pay dearly at that for bringing this abhorrent affront to the Almighty into this reality.
>>798673011d6 for a regular Mr. Blobby.1d100 per round if you are ever unfortunate enough to witness the Blobby Core.

>>79873282Why does it look like someone jizzed on Mr Blobby?
>>79870913See>>79850362The Blobby Core or The Pink Mass resides at the center of each of the three Blobbyland anomalies.The "Center" is a relative term as each anomaly is a non-euclidean space so the internal structure shifts constantly. However, the closer you get to the Blobby Core, the more reality distorts so it's the best way to think of it.
>>79831083I'm a yank. I googled Mister Blobby and JEEZUS CHRISThttps://youtu.be/4H0MR-trDQc
>>79876462It gets worse the more you watch it
>>79876462Moor proof the British are a clinically insane race.
What's its end goal
>>79873949The remains of a previous victim, their bones slowly liquefying into his moist soft Blobby flesh.
>>79880241Mr Blobby is a perfect example of how many layers of irony the British Public demand in their entertainment.>1. Created as a fake and deliberately unsettling chaotic mascot to evoke reactions (the same reactions all of you are having; chiefly "what the fuck" and "oh god it's coming straight towards me" and "it smashed through the fucking wall"). Aimed mostly at adults.>2. Kids, who watch adult TV, unironically like Mr. Blobby. The idea of a rampant manifestation of rule-breaking appeals, I guess. Some quiet children are suitably terrified.>3. Adults like Mr. Blobby ironically, in a sort of "what an interesting manifestation of the nation's moral decay and the vapid morass of light entertainment. Oh dear or dear." way. >4. Some people who aren't entirely sure why Mr. Blobby is popular start a theme park. It's popular, briefly, because it's ironic. It's like having a theme park about Happy Tree Friends. And it fails because there's only one joke, and it doesn't translate well to a theme park.>5. Modern /tg/, without context, loops straight back to 1 and the cycle repeats.So, to sum up, it's a deliberately terrifying character, like something out of Candle Cove or Local 58, but more high-energy. Then it became a "beloved" icon on at least 2 levels of irony. Then people read it as an unintentionally terrifying character. Goodness. What a mess.
>>79880249It's already achieved it.
>>79883513Given how fucked everything is I could believe it.
>>79831083>>79831202Fuck y'all I had a Mr Blobby teddy bear as a kid, I loved that thing. Also the original Mr Blobby sketch is unironically funny:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HDyyU6H81X0Genuinely never understood why he creeps people out, Mr Blobby is based as fuck. If I have just been indoctrinated from childhood into some kind of Blobby cult then honestly I'm down, I don't have much else going on, bring on our new eldritch god.
>>79887065Looks like we've found an Edmonds
>>79887620I'll give you that Noel Edmonds is a creepy motherfucker, he legit ran Deal or No Deal as a cult. People that went on it were sequestered like jury duty in a hotel and then encouraged to believe in his ideas of positive thought manifestations, that's why the show has such weird creepy vibes and people made so many dumb decisions, they were isolated into a rotating community of people who were weirdly love bombed into believing they could control probability.This is why he does shit like try to sell dodgy alternative therapies and telling people they cause their own cancer by having a negative attitude.Mr Blobby however is just good vibes and good times. Got to respect him. If he's talking about cancer it's just to say "blobby blobby" at a cancer patient ward to cheer up kids because he's an absolute lad.
>>79887065based Mr. Blobby appreciator.
>>79887065>>79887868>>79890056Blobby hands typed these posts.
Do NOT inform people outside of the British Isles of Mr Blobby. What they do not know cannot hurt them. But now... may God spare their souls.
>>79891571Mr Blobby was very popular in New Zealand for reasons I cannot fathom.
>>79831083I'm glad I don't remember seeing any programs with that fucker in.STILL unnerves me to this day just by seeing an image, like something that just shouldn't be tried to disguise itself as lovable

>>79891712Blobby is well beyond reason
>>79873949Fuck if I know. maybe that's how the Edmonds manage to co-exist without becoming hosts for the emerging Bloblets...
>>79891571YOU JUST KNOW
>>79883513What did they do?
>>79891571>that leerdidn't know Mr. Blobby was cheating on his wife. what a scumbag.
>>79900021I'm pretty sure they have an open relationship.
>>79891712I cannot imagine the thought process of the kiwis who, after having split from the British Empire, decided to import the insane tackiness of american sculpture, and apparently, the worst of british entertainment at the same time, may god bless then damn you all.
>>79900072>open relationshipso Mrs. Blobby is a cuck?
>>79902457I don't think they have the same concept of sex and relationships we do. I mean they at least don't have any visible genitalia. Mr Blobby walks around children wearing nothing but a tie 24/7, we'd have noticed, he'd have been had by operation yewtree.
>>79883513We are truly doomed.
>>79902539maybe it's like a bird's cloaca, and the parts meant for reproduction are contained within it?
>>79831083So he wasn't a fever dream!
>>79831083>shoots with a shotgunWow. So scary.
>>79905820Britain is a weird place to grow up.I had that same "oh it wasn't a dream" feeling about that time they made all the schoolchildren in the country go out into a field and jump up and down to create an earthquake, but it turned out it was real and actually happened to me.
>>79905960>Fist sized hole punched in its chest>You can hear the man inside shriek, sob, beg for help>Mr. Blobby doesn't even slow down.

>>79906566Oh they know, and they profit from it.
>>79906566>>79906598It was from a better time where children weren't coddled away from a profound and needless sense of surreal horror.Personally I was traumatised as a child by sentient orange with a human face being tortured to death while making inhuman wails. It was just a part of a good british upbringing.

>>79908208We need a containment team, we have a indoctrinated victim to the memetic hazard.
This is the man in the costume.I don't know why the picture is so unsettling.Supposedly Blobby's in the bag.
>>79908623wrong sentient orange with a human face, thanks for making me feel old that someone who is now an adult could have grown up with the Annoying Orange.Here's the weird british shit if you're curious.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LAc_WpPpWlYHonestly even for britain it's pretty bizarre that it was on at a sunday daytime. I think the fact that he came back for revenge might have freaked me out more than the initial death. I became convinced he was under my bed.
>>79908974>adult could have grown up with the Annoying Orange.I wonder how many zoomers remember that.And I barely count as an adult.
>>79908974ok yeah it's weird and surreal, but only just seeing this, I love it
>>79908974... This isn't even creepy, I just don't know what the fuck this is? Is this some sort of daytime show ala ellen/the view?
>>79909016In retrospect I am glad something this fucking weird was put on television.Also in retrospect watching it again I forgive my child self for thinking the orange would kill him as he is on screen shown having eaten a child while his screaming mother panics and maddening piano plays.>>79909047It was "This Morning With Richard Not Judy" the title of which takes another level of britishness to explain, but it was essentially a sketch comedy show with a satirical daytime chat show as the framing device. The only thing I can think of that americans would know is that Stewart Lee the "not judy" of the title went on to become the writer of Jerry Springer The Opera which caused a christian moral panic and protest in both countries for featuring a gay Jesus and the Devil being reconciled by Jerry Springer.He's also a successful if niche standup comedian, if you'd enjoy a very liberal very british Norm MacDonald then you'd probably enjoy it.
>>79909145it's right up my alley for "surreal comedy", some shit people try to pass off as that is just irritating.
>>79908386It's because of the large, mysterious bag, and his expression looking like he's been caught doing something wrong.
>>79909145Follow up question being an 'uncultured american pigdog," Are almost all British shows built in with a layer of irony to them? Because almost all shows I see are satirical in nature. I'm certain you have a few straight laced ones, but almost all the popular ones seem to be taking the piss.
>>79909177You should try The Young Ones or Jam. They're british comedy shows on a similar surreal wavelength. The Mighty Boosh is good but does lean a touch more towards annoying, sometimes.
>>79909298Yes and no.It's not that it's all the shows it's just that it's a very common strain of our humour. The example I'd give is Mrs Browns Boys, this is an absolute lowest common denominator show that's critically hated. Equivalent to whatever the dumbest sitcom trash is that you have. But even that is the way it is because it's intentionally making a point of doing a big multi-camera sitcom like it's the 70s and nothing has changed, and also a big part of its appeal is the actors laughing, breaking character and doing improv.The difference is that having a layer of irony isn't limited to satire or to a certain kind of comedy.The most popular gameshow is called "Pointless" and the celebrity edition is literally called "Pointless Celebrities", it's all presented with a wry gentle humour not taken too seriously.We still absolutely have our share of genuine sincere dramas, genuine sincere trash, daytime magazine shows, reality shows, all that stuff. All of which does about as well as it does in america I'd imagine, so there's plenty of popular shows that aren't ironic or satirical, we just always have a good portion that are, I'd guess more than america at least, and there's always the potential at any moment that when they want to lighten the tone in a regular show with humour that's the angle they'll take.
>>79909541Come to think of it the best example really might be pantomime. The bizarre combination of ritualised levels of tradition, sincerity, irony, nonsense and men in drag, I don't think anyone who isn't a child can fully articulate what level they even enjoy pantomimes on, but they are hugely gigantically popular, every year, every christmas, without fail. They support an entire countries worth of small local theaters for the rest of the year, because they will sell out every night over the festive period.They're maybe the most incomprhensibly british thing that exists and also probably explain why we took to Mr Blobby like we did.I'm rambling, it's 2am in the green and pleasant land.
>>79909298>Are almost all British shows built in with a layer of irony to them?Irony and the world destroying your dreams are two of the cornerstones of British situational comedy. Rare indeed is the British character with ambition who comes out the better for it.
>>79909890That's true one of the most beloved british sitcoms of all time is set in the trenches of the first world war and ends with the entire cast being killed.
>>79910025I'm not entirely sure I'd call Blackadder a sitcom.
>>79910084By what metric?
>>79910084Then what would you call it?
>>79909890>Irony and the world destroying your dreams are two of the cornerstones of British situational comedy. They're cornerstones of British society, really.>>79906744Now that i think about it, there really was far more mildly eldritch stuff on then I remember. Even the wholesome stuff like Pob or ZZZap! (which was made with deaf children in mind) was peculiar.My favourite was Roger and the Rottentrolls, but precious few people seem to remember it.https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=-oGyAb5TaaY
>>79890593can blobby even use a regular keyboard?
>>79913380He doesn't need to he has cultists. What they were promised is anyone's guess.
>>79909890>Irony and the world destroying your dreams are two of the cornerstones of British situational comedy.Three ways to know that a comedy is British>Irony>The world destroying your dreams>The entire cast and crew are Irish, it's set in Ireland, and Wikipedia has banned dozens of Irish IPs for editing its page to suggest it might be an Irish comedy instead.
>>79915482Ha....are people really banned for editing that?
>>79915482>Wikipedia banning people for edits they don't like.Do we even have to ask, of course they were.
>>79909191which to be honest, he has
>>79870592What almighty? There is no god, only Blobby.
>>79915950>There is no god, only Blobby.Quite possible the most accursed sentence I have ever read on this site. Certainly on this board.
>>79844264Not Mr Noseybonk?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=adRU7BzgzcY
>>79906744What? Is this some british show?
>>79917194yes but the show had nothing to do with kids really. He was part of a candid camera type segment on a variety show. They would get adult celebrities and tell them they were guest stars on a hit kids tv show which starred this monstrosity. They then proceed to have the Mr.Blobby act in pure incompetence and see how long it takes before the celebrity breaks character.But then Mr.Blobby went from being 'Just a prank bruh', to being a real kid's show character with its own theme park. The popularity did NOT last long.
>>79831083OP Here. JEEZ-US CHRIST. IS THIS THREAD STILL GOING?NGL, I love this thread. It's like a trainwreck that never stops.
>>79917357There were theme parks. Multiple. Throughout the country multiple theme parks just gave over their entire branding to Mr Blobby for multiple years.He also had a song that was No. 1 for three weeks over christmas 1993. The lyrics genuinely sound like the anthem of a cult.>>79917194If you were actually asking about the orange it's in the replies: >>79908974>>79917474It's almost like there's some primordial force that makes Blobby popular.
>>79917612>The lyrics genuinely sound like the anthem of a cult.Having now listened to it >>79857770I have to agree with you
*Reads thread**Calls Kamen rider*https://youtu.be/C02iy00hdNw
>>79918771Just to include a sample, here's only the part of the lyrics sung by a creepy choir of children:"Blobby, oh Mr Blobby, if only you could make us understandBlobby, oh Mr Blobby, your influence will spread throughout the landBlobby, oh Mr Blobby, when disaster strikes you never get depressedBlobby, oh Mr Blobby, you'll always prove that Blobby is the bestBlobby, Mr Blobby, you're the guy who puts the do in do or dieBlobby, Mr Blobby, your deeds are guaranteed to stupefyBlobby, oh Mr Blobby, if humanity's a question of degreeBlobby, Mr Blobby, stay loyal to your Blobby pedigreeBlobby, oh Mr Blobby, you're the one who bears the pink and yellow crestBlobby, Mr Blobby, you'll always prove that Blobby is the best"Petition to rename Mr.Blobby to "He Who Bears The Pink And Yellow Crest"

>>79923664After some elaborate searching it's Nathalie Brandon, but she seems pretty obscure and has only been in this show.
>>79924087>were the creators of Hollow Knight subconsciously influenced by Mr. Fucking BlobbyAll is Blobby and Blobby is all. Blobby reaches into our minds, warps our dreams, shows us images, vistal, carnal, delights, blasphemous acts, the carnal worship of the Blobbymass.He whispers to us, calls us to the Blobby land, the hives. Oh, they think they got them. They think they destroyed the gives, demolished the parks. But the Blobbycores live on, waiting, eternally patient.Soon it will come, the feast of extravagance shall begin, the time of the Blobbyfying shall be upon us! Weep, repent, rejoice, for they shall come again! Oh Blobby, come to us, show us the way! We long for you Blobby! Devour all and make it Blobby!
>>79924726Dude you have to conceal your power level.The entire deal of the Blobby cult is blending into light entertainment banality, you've got to go softly softly with this shit. The desperate frenzy to make money of nostalgia is only intensifying. He's coming back, but you cannot let the normies know about the hives.
>>79906611Man i used to watch ashens nonstop and now i barely watch his new videos now. I dunno what changed, frankly.
>>79920617It's Mr Blobby, of course they were
>>79914447Not being eaten?
>>79927751His YouTube is very low effort now, as he spends a lot of time streaming or making God awful films.
>>79914447>I'm loving it. I'm loving it! I don't give a shit, this is the happiest I've ever been. This guy is a legend!There isn't a cult, as such, there's people playing their parts for the King in Pink and Yellow. Think about it, the whole original conceit of The Play was people agreed to perform a bit of light entertainment, but really they were going to be exposed to a malevolent entity that wanted to ruin them. Blobby bystanders, audience members, whole damn counties and tourist attractions were sucked into the performance, to their cost and with little understanding of what was involved, but a good portion of them found the whole thing hilarious anyway. You can even bring in some Delta Green with the entropic decay aspects of the theme parks - they suddenly took over smaller attractions, sprouted ungodly ugly structures that fit in nowhere on this earth but especially not sleepy English villages, then decayed into abandoned wreckage that still draws in curious souls.tl:dr Crinkley Bottom is Carcosa.>>79908386>No mask? No mask!

>>79934473do they still sell this stuff?
>>79927751when he started getting other people in the humor dropped hard
>>79937929Not in any shop I've been into.
>>79941326that's a shame. it would be interesting to see what it would taste like.
>>79942174pink lemonade, I would guess
>>79942174Blackcurrent and lemon, I think. Same company that did Panda Cola and the like. Apparently it was ludicrously acidic as well, if you believe this ancient daily mail articlehttps://www.thefreelibrary.com/Our+children+are+eating+acid%3b+WE+EXPOSE+THE+SHOCKING+TRUTH+BEHIND...-a0103894752>DENTIST'S VERDICT: [Brain Licker sour candy] is the most acidic food we've ever come across. I have never seen a product for human consumption with a pH of less than two. The previous worst was Mr Blobby Pink Lemonade, which had a pH of 2.4.According to this delightfully accursed website, there was a whole range of food and drinkhttps://www.mrblobbycollection.com/food
>>79908974That was fifty-five minutes and fifteen seconds of the purest kino I've ever seen.
What if Mr Blobby is the physical cast of the King in Yellow--the species the King emerges from? As a Blobby matures its yellow crests spread over its body, leaving behind the pink flesh it had in its child state. There is only one King, but when he abdicates or falls, one of his children is ready to emerge from the hives and take his place. No mask! No mask! What seems to be cheap, crinkled rubber is his flesh, of course.
What is at the center of the Blobby hive?
>>79935322It was 1993, I have no clear recollection of it.
>>79839981>I'm just imagining a laughing parent telling their child "let mr. Blobby give you a hug" after just finished devouring said child's best friend.i swear i have seen cartoons like this, the mother is excited for her kid to meet the clown and the kid is crying a carrying on as his friend was just devoured his legs kicking a little just outside its mouth before stopping and twitching a little, then he slurps the rest up and approaches the kid as the mom pushes him closerthen the kid calms down and is totally fine with being next now for some reason, pure insanity
My Ranger and animal companions will be sure to defeat any threat
>>79945645Alternatively, what if its the other way around- the juveniles shed their yellow down as they grow older and more active. No need to hide, no need to be summoned, it can simply be free to dance and play and howl Blobby nonsense in terrifying joy>The time would be easy to know, for then mankind would have become as the Great Old Ones; free and wild and beyond good and evil, with laws and morals thrown aside and all men shouting and killing and revelling in joy. Then the liberated Old Ones would teach them new ways to shout and kill and revel and enjoy themselves, and all the earth would flame with a holocaust of ecstasy and freedom.
>>79892899>>79890593>>79887065This.It's the same thing with people alleging dark secrets to the teletubbies, spongebob or whatever cute kids show was popular, just to be edgy.Fucking pathetic.Blobby is amazing and the oonly thing i'd wanna see is him square off against a teletubby!
>>79951057Fuck you. Now I'm thinking about those hedgehogs.
>>79952417Make it all four, one would go too quick. Hell, throw the vacuum cleaner in too.
>>79954550I think while teletubbies are less agile, they do make up for it in mass.Blobby is squishy, teletubbies are more bouncy.Like seriously one tummy bounce from a teletubby and blobby goes flying across the meadow.And nunu is absolutely OP.You can't possibly expect anyone to match up with that vacuum.It will just suck something up and then you can chase it all around the house to give it back. or trap a hand of yours with its suction.
>>79954680>Nunu turning Mr Blobby into Tubby Custard>This is a mere stumbling block
>>79954927No come on, no violence.Nunu would just literally pin him to the floor and watch him flail.
>>79954951>pin him to the floor and watch him flailThis is just turning into a slashfic
>>79955365We're reaching levels of cursed that shouldn't even be possible.
>>79954927Stumbling block? We stuck a memetic hazard in a pit with four walking, talking telecommunications devices. I'm fairly certain Blobby planned this.
>>79955762Even liquidised, his goals are served.
>>79955452noo noo got that succccc
>>79909727Honestly the Star Wars Christmas Special makes so much more sense when you realize it's supposed to be a Panto. And then they tried to sell it on NBC.
>>79959960That explains exactly one part of the Star Wars Christmas Special. The rest remains a mystery.I have yet to see the Widow Twanky settle in for an evening of VR porn.
>>79955762When Mr. Blobby reaches social media, we as a species are done. Imagine if The King in Yellow was performed on Twitch, YouTube live, etc. all at once. Whether or not Blobby is the King in Yellow like other anons put together, just imagine what results from Blobby broadcasting across the globe instantly instead of being confined to one island's traditional airwaves.
>>79887065Hey, I still have my original Mr Blobby CD single.True story, a friend was using my CD player to record some music for their CoC campaign. He left the room for an hour, giving me enough time to delete the last few tracks, record the Blobby single and put the other tracks back on. He wasn't pleased, apparently it ruined the mood he was going for at the gaming table...
>>79906744Ha, Fist of Fun, I remember you! And I want the Moon on a stick too Mr Curious Orange...
>>79960986I can imagine. We play horror games to feel pretend horror, not have an actual cosmic horror smash in.
>>79960683>When Mr. Blobby reaches social mediaWhere do you think we are!?Also, Mr. Blobby (via UK panel shows) has already infiltrated the nerdstream. See:>>79836587 You are too late.
>>79953644Not the part with the shrike? The hedgehogs were bad, but the shrike was legitimate horror.

>>79857770What a bunch of nofun faggots.
This is the best thread I've seen on /tg/ in a while.
>>79967724Bit of a low bar to reach there.
>>79961466It's not the screaming terror. It's the quiet desperation of Mr Hedgehog begging his wife not to curl up into a ball because if she stops, she'll die.
>>79967724/tg/ hasn't been good in a long time. But a thread like this is a ghost of when fun and interesting things happened here. I have now seen things I shouldn't have seen, but I'm grateful to have seen them now.
>>79968384That's not Mr. Pheasant being so blinded by tears over his wife's cooked body that he doesn't notice the farmer aim a shotgun at himI remember next to nothing about Farthing woods except the death scenes which have clung to my mind for 20 years
>>79970767Farthing Wood wouldn't be made now.
>>79970767>>79968384jesus fucking christ what
>>79971073It's okay, it's for kids. It teaches them about life.
>>79971100Is this some british shit?No wonder they're so fucked up.
>>79971073Traditional British children's television. It made my generation.
>>79971748Well that explains a lot.
>>79971748It was big in Norway too, our own state-funded TV broadcaster ran a dubbed version pretty regularly.Remember when the badger went senile and started forgetting his friends, before dying in his sleep?
>>79970767bro whatI remember seeing it but I don't remember the detailsYoutube link that please?
>>79973467It was a heartbreaking show.
>>79971073>>79971104>>79973695The Animals of Farthing Wood. It's about some animals who have to flee their home when it gets re-developed into a housing estate. Season one was the only good one.Here's a review: - https://youtu.be/-fLE686EqkoJust the deaths: - https://youtu.be/2pypyDDPmIQ
>>79971100That's fucking horrifying.
>>79974358Man, Adder was the best.
>>79974358On review, the hedgehog deaths really are the worst because of how drawn out it is. Plus to a kid, the way it's set up seems to be a clear "they will learn how to cross the road and make it". >>79976212Adder is a great example of how to have a character that clashes with a party, but isn't obnoxious about it and actually develops. Absolutely the best.
>>79976709>When a childrens tv show from decades ago is more fucked up than GoT
>>79976709>the way it's set up seems to be a clear "they will learn how to cross the road and make it". "Hey, we introduced a bunch of adorable fox kids for the main couple""Oh boy, will they have adventures?""Sure, sure they will."
>>79970767As far as animation goes, the British and Japanese both share a love for fucked-up shit. Farthing Wood, Watership Down, the animated Animal Farm, all are really dark.
>>79980470Dont forget Plague dogs, one of the most pro suicide movies out there
>>79974358Made in Abyss ain't got shit on this boomer stuff.
>>79980521I grew up on British Animation and I quite forgot that one. British Animation deserves to known for more than Aardman's admittedly stellar Claymation work. Cosgrove Hall's Wind in the Willows was a staple of my childhood, and while not as dark as the others, it had its moments.
>>79949230I have one of those.His head is shaped like a bellend though
>>79980470When The Wind Blows. A tender story of an elderly Northern couple dying of radiation poisoning.
>>79980769It amazes me that the person who wrote When the Wind Blows also wrote The Snowman which I watch every christmas
>>79981048>One poster said "I couldn't believe it when I heard. He was a nice old children's illustrator who never hurt anyone.">The case will be heard at the Old Bailey next month. ITV News, I'm Burton Mondesco.
>>79981048His satire of the Falklands War is and remains a masterpiece.
>>79981048He based the old couple on his parents, and how they reacted to the world/official government briefings from the time, which adds another layer of horror to the proceedings. His more recent book Ethel & Ernest is also about them, though its much more positive. Its the story of their lives, from when they met in the 20s to their deaths in the 70s.For more vintage British/Australian nuclear doom, Threads is a good 'un. For a given value of good and a significant amount of doom.
>>79981470In terms of that, the most frightening and prescient would be Survivors from 1975. It essentially predicted the Coronavirus outbreak.https://youtu.be/Ch7N7KCn778
Honourable mention to this absolute mentalist https://youtu.be/aYsoZxpsPVcYeah, teachers are scary, but the adult implications of "he's a powerful adult committing secret crimes that violate your personhood and nobody will believe you..."
>ywn make zooks with your mates on the school computers ever againPain
>>79981738Terence Hardiman was really good in that. Was always a bit disappointed they never adapted the book Hunky Parker Is Watching You and went with the genetics lab thing.Also, while we're on the subject of nuclear allegories, low budget costumes and bizarrely terrifying children's TV, Through The Dragon's Eye was part of a series of schools programme to encourage literacy. Along with cardboard sets, not-Ewoks and songs about spelling, it had a bafflingly scary design for the villain, Charnhttps://www.denofgeek.com/tv/looking-back-at-through-the-dragon-s-eye/
>>79982210Mate, this was right there with Earthwatch. Oh, and the one about German spies.
>>79980521Apparently the book has a less dark ending; the book makes it clear that the island is real, the film leaves it ambiguous as to weather the dogs drown or not.
>>79980610Thus the outward appearance grows to mirror the inward nature.
>>79982424best part of the book is the dog thinking he's psychic after the dude accidentally blows his own head off with the shotgun
>>79981738>The prefects are the voice of the Headmaster.>They must be obeyed.
>>79982210https://youtu.be/5HPNKNRl4h8Villain enters at 1:25I was shown these in primary school, and I didn't remember the baddy being that horrifying-looking! I did vaguely remember him melting people, though.
>>79982552He is actually pretty horrifying and their reactions seem totally justified.
>>79982552He is absolutely terrifying.
>>79986748I don't know of he looks like a real bird monster, but he definitely looks like the leader of a village bird cult. The bad kind.
>>79982210Growing up in Great Britain last century was metal as fuck. This was an otherwise whimsical kids educational adventure, with silly cartoonist characters and puppets, right up until Satan here shows up and kills half the supporting cast by melting them.People rag on 40K for how ridiculously Grim Dark and OTT it is about how fucked everyone is, everywhere, all of the time, but when it was created it was actually pretty fucking middle of the road compared to most everything else in the country it was competing with. Fucking Doctor Who back then regularly had episodes with full on massacres and flat out body horror as minor plot points, and that was the family friendly, light hearted fun sci fi option.
>>79990111Spearhead from Space and Terror of the Autons were fucking insanely scary.
>>79990278Ressurection of the Daleks kills 51 people, often in the most cruel and merciless manner, gunned down as they flee, fighting foes they are unable to harm, or just seconds before they would have saved the day or achieved even just a pyrrhic victory. Or this nightmare fuel from the end of Dragonfire, after the main villian, an ice alien, finds out his species is dead and decides to off himself by melting in the sun.
>>79990392Late classic Who was absolutely mental. The reboot is the most soulless dreck by comparison.
>>79990111>Growing up in Great Britain last century was metal as fuck.Remember those safety films we used to show kids? I vividly remember watching a child drown in a slurry pit.
>>79990495It's not body horror or particularly visceral, but the last season episode Curse of Fenric has a scene where you see the moment a priest loses his faith in god over his guilt about the dresden bombings, is therefore no longer able to fend off child vampires, and immediately dies screaming.The budget was gone by then, the effects didn't always look great, but man was that a really well acted moment, that scream sticks with me. That one always struck me as a pretty intense moment for a kids show.
>>79992237I remember the one with the dead kids and graphic electrical burns. And the cooking oil burns. We saw them in primary school. I think i was 7 at the time.
>>79990111>>79990392>>79992541Daleks are quite possibly some of the best villains of all time and are horrifying as a concept on basically every possible level. To be a Dalek is terrifying, to fight a Dalek is terrifying.
>>79992541>>79992237I think people in GB still really remembered the War and the Blitz. They were preparing their children with the mental scarring they would need to be able to make it through another similar scenario. >>79990278Claws of Axos had a dude disintegrate into a white powder, and Inferno has an entire alternate version of the earth be utterly destroyed. Side note - while I know Baker is considered the best, I have a real soft spot for Pertwee just because of how much a chad he makes the doctor come across as, and how well he conveys a sense of disappointment and longing at being trapped on a planet of British virgins.
>tfw you hit the bump limit and now it's time for a /blobby/ general
>>79992965Daleks especially are just extremely post-war nazi allegories. Literally marched down the streets of London doing little hitler salutes with their weird plunger arms speaking in staccato "hitler speech">>79992965Guy didn't get many episodes with great writing to show it, but I think Sylvester McCoy is hugely underrated. He genuinely does a great job of never quite letting you know where you stand, flipping from impish to morally outraged to vulnerable, while always making you wonder if he has a plan. He's great in the audio stuff they did later but I do miss his tremendously expressive face. Pretty good for a guy who made his name pretending to put weasels down his trousers.Truthfully though I don't think the Doctor has ever had a truly bad actor portraying them, just bad writing or direction.
>>79993163The current one is the worst but even she's, at worst, mediocre.
>>79993910She's really not helped by the scripts or direction.Or her wardrobe for that matter.

This has been a really nice thread, thank you anons. Blob on until next time, blob on.
Goodnight Sweet Prince
I want to go back
>>79992793Oh FUCK>>79993163McCoy is amazing in the Happiness Patrol, too. Not only is there a villain who fucking caramelised you to death, but the Doctor takes the "What are you going to do, stab me?" defence to whole new levels.
>>79996760A giant Bertie Basset as a professional torturer and executioner.That's the kind of shit you just aren't going to get in another show.
