I say, Hello Noddy, It's me, Sly The Goblin.

Hello Noddy, Here's the party.

Sly and Gobbo are the main antagonists in the BBC stop motion animated TV series Noddy's Toyland Adventures and all of its subsequent spin-offs.

Sly was voiced by the late Susan Sheridan, and Gobbo was voiced by Jimmy Hibbert.



Sly and Gobbo are the only villains appearing in the Noddy franchise. They are a pair of mischievous goblins who love to cause trouble for others and also have an obsession with coins. They are always seen going out of their way to create trouble for others and to steal from the residents from toyland with Gobbo appearing to be the leader of the two.

However, at the end of each episode they would seemingly apologise only to return to their old tricks come the beginning of a new day. While they were not particularly threatening or powerful they were definitely the closest thing to regular villains Noddy and his friends faced during the course of the series.


Gobbo is a rather ugly, short, skinny creature with flushed cheeks, a pointy nose and raggedy clothes while Sly is a more lanky scarecrow like goblin with pointed ears, a large chin, a raggedy jumpsuit and an elfish hat.
