About

Gremblo is a cartoon character known for his short stature, purple-colored skin, who is often depicted in various situations with his wife Margie. After he was initially created by the Trash Toons YouTube channel in late 2016, animators Michael Cusack and PsychicPebbles began posting their own illustrations of Gremblo, encouraging others to post fan arts along with the hashtag #gremblo.

Origin

On December 26th, 2016, YouTuber Trash Toons uploaded a video titled "Gremblo," in which a disgruntled office worker named Greg commits suicide after being nicknamed "Gremblo." The video has since been deleted.

Spread

On June 16th, 2017, Twitter user @MichaelRCusack[1][2] tweeted an illustration of the character followed by a photoshop of Gremblo with President Donald Trump (shown below). That day, the tweets were subsequently retweeted by animator PsychicPebbles (shown below).



On June 17th, 2017, PsychicPebbles[5] posted a drawing of Gremblo aiming a rifle at a door while warning the intruder on the other wise that he is "prepared to defend myself and my family" (shown below, left). Shortly after, artist Shadman replied with an illustration of Gremblo reenacting a scene from the 1976 crime film Taxi Driver (shown below, right). PsychicPebbles subsequently announced he would be "compiling all Gremblo fan art for something genuinely special and important," urging those who wanted to be included to post their original illustrations with the hashtag "#gremblo."[4]


"i don't know who's behind this door and i don't know why you're invading my home, but i am prepared to defend myself and my family." "are you talking to me? Idont see anybody else around, so you must be talking to me."

That day, an anonymous 4chan user posted illustrations of Gremblo, claiming the character was "up for adoption". Prior to being archived, the thread received more than 95 replies. Meanwhile, YouTuber Places to Visit in Hell uploaded a video of Gremblo floating in space while a piano can be heard in the background (shown below, left) and YouTuber secondkingMASH posted an animated of Gremblo running off a cliff and exploding (shown below, right).

The following day, Redditor Mr_Nexxus submitted a post asking "What is 'gremblo' and what does Psychicpebbles have to do with it?" to /r/OutOfTheLoop.[3]
