I know this place has been done to death over the years on these forums, but I thought I would post this report firstly because it seems that nobody to date has reported on the food hall and avaries and secondly I have some very serious and sad news to announce.

With much regret and considerable sorrow, I am sorry to announce to the good people of 28DL that sometime between July 2014 and October 2014 the home of Mr Blobby has been demolished :(

I am aware that I am meant to post a bit of history before the report, but on this occasion I wont. Those of a younger generation who have no idea of who or what Mr Blobby is, will be better off remaining in ignorance. Those of an older generation who do know what I am talking about, will not be wanting those awful childhood memories resurfaced.

From Wikipedia, this paragraph nicely sums up the phenomenon of Mr Blobby: 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...Some commentators have called him a metaphor for a nation gone soft in the head. Others have seen him as proof of Britain's deep-seated attraction to trash." A Sun article published the previous month had reported that Blobby reduced a young girl to tears after throwing her birthday cake onto the floor during a show, causing the girl's father to mount the stage and assault Blobby.

Onto the photos:


The Ticket Hall, bizarrely now full of boxes and boxes of Christmas Crackers!

Yes this remote patch of Somerset, miles from anywhere, really was once a wildlife park

The Food Court

Inside the Food Court - those who were unwillingly dragged here as a child in the 1990s will be thrilled to know that right next to the food preparation area can be seen the most minging staff toilets. Happy dysentery to you all!

The Avaries

Depressed, miserable and bored wild animals still remain in the cages waiting for the return of visitors

OMG - They destroyed Mr Blobby's house. Just what, we ask, was going through the head of the psychopath who bulldozed MR BLOBBY'S HOUSE!

In this pile of pink rubble lies the remains of a National Treasure, a legend from the 1990s. A nation mourns and weeps. Throughout the nation flags are flown at half-mast.

Children from around the world mourn the loss of an idol

The Miniature Railway can be followed

Inside the Miniature Railway Tunnel, funky vomit-style artwork remains

Thanks for looking. A Book of Condolences to the late deceased Mr Blobby will be opened shortly.

Thought I would give an update:

You may have noticed that I took my children to Blobbyland. Well my 7 year old son has no idea who or what exactly Mr Blobby is.

Consequently I have just had to spend the past hour watching old You Tube clips of Noel's House Party with him. I have also been forced to search Amazon for a Mr Blobby DVD.

God! Life is so cruel to me :banghead

Well this thread has resurfaced again. Let's give an update to an update:

At his request and proving that any old crap can bought from eBay, Son of Bertie Bollockbrains will be receiving a Mr Blobby DVD from Santa :mad. He is also getting a Mr Blobby pencil case to be used at school. I'm blaming this website for putting the idea of visiting Blobbyland into my head.

Funny memory from that day - Told Son of Bertie Bollockbrains (aged 7) whilst we were at Blobbyland that one day Peppa Pig World (which is a theme park in Hampshire) will be like this one day. He cried himself to sleep that night because of me saying that.

MWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA (evil laugh)

yes I know I have sinned and I will be reporting myself to social services in the morning
