"Mr Blobby" is a novelty song performed by character Mr Blobby, famous for appearing in the TV programme Noel's House Party. The song originally peaked at #1 on the chart on 11 December 1993 for one week. It later spent a total of 3 weeks at #1. The single was the UK Singles Chart Christmas number one single in 1993.
The Mr Blobby spoof theme song "Mr Blobby", written by Philip Raxster and produced by Paul Shaw and David Rogers, was released as a single and somewhat improbably hit #1 on the UK Singles Chart on December 11, 1993, 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.
