It was an idea slime monster created by Zackie Beauchamp which came to life. The Blob does everything Zackie Beauchamp writes in his story, including eating his creator's best male friend Adam Levin. It was defeated when Zackie Beauchamp uses his mind powers to think the blob away and bringing his best friend Adam back.
In a twist ending, the story was actually written by the Blob and his green-colored blob friend liked it, especially when the Pink Blob ate Adam. Green suggests that Pink change the ending so that Pink eats everyone.
The Blob is described as a giant pink blob with beady eyes, a huge toothless mouth, and a massive head with thick veins that throbbed like a giant heart. It also had a long, sticky tongue covered in hot drool that it used to grab and devour anyone in its path.
TV Series appearance
The Blob looks drastically different than how it was depicted in the book. It appears near the end of the episode as a small yellow blob with purple veins and a rope-like tongue. This one has no eyes but very sharp teeth.
The Blob in the film appears near the climax as a gigantic, glowing pinkish-purple mass of amorphous slime. It has no distinct shape, nor a "mouth" or tongue.
The European version of the blob is slightly different. For example, when the blob eats something it becomes bigger. Unlike the American and TV version, the blob is not a monster written by a another blob and he was not defeated by Zackie's mind powers but with the type machine, to make him shrink.
Television and Film
The Blob appears in the TV adaption of the book performed by Jason Hopley.
The Blob appears in the Goosebumps film. It appears as a more liquid substance unlike his appearance on the book cover or TV version. When Slappy and his fellow monsters track R.L. Stine, Zach, Hannah, and Champ to the abandoned amusement park, Slappy frees the Blob which consumes the funhouse. While R.L. Stine was distracting the monsters, he ends up swallowed by the Blob. Once the book is complete, the Blob and the other Goosebumps monsters were sucked into the new book.
List of appearances
- The reason why The Blob had a more liquid appearance in the film was because originally was going to be Monster Blood. But instead of changing the appearance, the animators just changed the color from green to pink.
- The Blob, especially in its movie appearance, is a take off of the 1958 film The Blob. This is also referenced in the film Goosebumps.
