I really don't mind you people watching me, although I do wish you'd share them. You're very selfish, taking me away from the children like that, you know.
~ Bobble appearing to a Foundation doctor.
Suddenly all those superstitions started to float away and I had no children to help, no parents to… well, you'll find out soon enough. And yet, there was one little form that I had left, one fun-loving character that could still reach inside those kids' heads and twist. I'm talking, of course, about Bobble the Clown.

Smile, you're on television!

Bobble the Clown is a humanoid creature resembling a clown under the SCP Foundation's containment. He is star and producer of SCP-993, which is a television show that brainwashes children.  


Bobble is a psychotic individual who loves every second of it. His twisted sadism is his only true goal in life, and he wishes for nothing more than to corrupt and kill children simply because he can. His powers allow him to brainwash and change form as he pleases, so he uses them for near unstoppable madness.   

History and Procedure

Bobble the Clown was first discovered by the Foundation after they found his television show entitled Bobble the Clown, which has the designation of SCP-993. In each episode, Bobble would go around to different locations and learn a new lesson. However, if these programs are viewed by children under the age of ten, they will fall unconscious at the beginning of the episode and remaining that state until the episode ends, waking up with extremely painful and long-lasting headaches.

Child victims exposed to SCP-993 instances claim that the show teaches and endorses illegal, violent, and horrific actions such as stalking, murder, torture, cannibalism, and more. The episodes give careful and step-by-step instructions on how to commit these atrocities, and the actions become ingrained into subjects' minds, making them obsessed to carry out the actions themselves. Repeated exposure to SCP-993 cases can result in severe mental illness.  

Episodes are released frequently from an unknown source, but in the 2000s, the SCP Foundation was able to block all of them from public viewing and obtain recordings of all documented episodes.

However, Bobble the Clown seems to be able to manifest from recordings of his show, and can even interact with or attack SCP Foundation personnel. He hates them for cutting him off from the children and wants revenge. In interviews that have been managed, Bobble says that he enjoys twisting children's minds and has been doing it through various means for millennia, possibly dating back to the caveman days and that Bobble the Clown is just one of its forms, its previous being the mythical skinwalker.
