It turns out that my little pink-and-yellow dude, which was intended to be a kind of Pokemon thing, is almost the spitting image of a British television character from the 1990's!

Update: But is it possible that Mr. Blobby's roots go even further back?

BLOBBY ROBBY ROBBY

I still wake up screaming every night.
Not a fan of Noel Edmund's house party, Elation? That was before Noel Edmunds became a washed up TV personality hosting stupid game shows. Oh, wait, he already was.

Wow. I'm reminded now that I actually had that Barbapapa book where he finds a wife and has kids when I was a kid. It was quite strange.
