When I think back on my childhood, there are characters I will never forget.
Whether it’s Big Bird and Elmo from “Sesame Street” or Steve and Blue from “Blue’s Clues,” there are some amazing television characters that have shaped my life. They’re part of the reason I still love television today.
However, there are also plenty of characters I don’t remember or never got to see. In the United Kingdom, for example, Mr. Blobby was on a late-night variety show that pranked celebrities. Even though he’s not an actual children’s character, the show told people he was, and now he has a cult following in the U.S.
Watch as Mr. Blobby thoroughly disturbs the contestants on this game show. Beyond his creepy clown looks, his voice is insane.
Yikes. I think I’ll stick with fuzzy monsters who teach me how to count to ten. Not that there aren’t plenty of creepy kids’ characters from the States…
