About this deal

A third park based in Pleasurewood Hills, Lowestoft also failed to outlive the 1990s but maintained successful revenue during and after the Crinkley Bottom branding. In March 1994, Elizabeth Kolbert of The New York Times wrote: "Mr Blobby's rise to stardom has provoked anguished commentaries about just what he stands for. Various scenes were filmed in and around Cricket House, which wasn't open to the public at the time. While the park attracted over 500,000 visitors in its first year, attendance figures dwindled and the park closed in 1998.

In December 1997, Mr Blobby made a guest appearance on the children's game show Get Your Own Back, he was the losing grown-up and was subsequently gunged. This led to large losses, a local scandal toppling councillors and finally an auditor's investigation, which reported in 2004 that "the Council's decision to proceed with the Theme Park was, on the basis of information available to Members and officers in March 1994, imprudent and failed to give due regard to the interests of local taxpayers. In February 2009, Cole Moreton of The Independent featured Blobby in a recounting of the "10 most irritating television characters", asking: "Was there something in the water?Mr Blobby's 1993 Christmas release " Mr Blobby", which topped the UK Singles Chart for three weeks, is regarded by many as the worst single, [35] and indeed, song, [36] of all time.

On 6 September 2019, Mr Blobby appeared on the 20th Anniversary episode of Loose Women where he grappled Carol McGiffin, losing an eye in the process. Within the first 3 weeks of its release 200,000 copies were sold, making it BBC Enterprises' fastest-selling video. In 1994 Millennium Interactive released Mr Blobby, a platform game based on the character for Amiga [42] and MS-DOS.

BlobbyVision featured even more of Mr Blobby's antics than ever before, including Postman Blob, Mastermind and even Blobbin Hood!

and was filmed at the Crinkley Bottom Theme Park, Somerset and BBC Television Centre, Wood Lane, London. Neville Crumpton, who bought some of the merchandise rights to the character in 1993, [31] said: "If the press can knock him, they'll knock him whenever they can. Though Mr Blobby is long gone from the estate, he still gets a brief mention in their free guidebook.Loose Women's 20th Birthday Ends in Chaos as Mr Blobby's Eye Falls off After Attacking Carol McGiffin". Denson, a child of the 90s, said he "thought it sounded like fun" and that it "was surreal putting on the suit for the first time. In a 2016 article, Stuart Heritage of The Guardian said that Blobby "became a sensation immediately", but then devolved into a "widely despised irritant". The All New Adventures of Mr Blobby' was released on the 5th February 1996 with fun clips including James Blob, a James Bond parody, and Blobby the Bellboy. Mr Blobby first appeared in 1992 in the 'Gotcha' segment of the second series of Noel's House Party, in which celebrities were caught out in a Candid Camera style prank.
