Mr Blobby by Mr Blobby replaced I’d do anything for love (but I won’t do that) by Meat Loaf at the top of the UK singles chart twenty years ago this week, having entered the top 40 the previous week at number 3. After one week at number 1, the song was succeeded by Babe by Take That.

The single returned to the top of the chart after one week at number 2 and stayed there for another two weeks. It then made way for Twist & shout by Chaka Demus and Pliers. After falling from the top spot for the final time, the record stayed in the top 10 for two more weeks, one of them in the top 5, and then spent the last two weeks of its chart life in the lower top 40.

Mr Blobby was released on the Destiny Music record label and was the only UK number 1 hit for Mr Blobby. The single was certified platinum in 1993 but in a 2002 poll for HMV it was voted the worst Christmas song ever.
