Gobo is a sprite that comes with all installations of Scratch. Gobo was named by Scratch Team member Natalie Rusk. It was drawn by Wing Ngan. On February 14, 2011, the Scratch Team announced that Gobo was the ninth most common sprite used in projects uploaded to the Scratch Website (after buttonPressed). It is unknown how commonly the sprite has been used more recently.
Gobo was named by Scratch Team member Natalie. According to Natalie, she got the idea from Gobo vegetable, also known as burdock root in English. Gobo was originally named "Blob".
A modified version of Gobo is used as the logo for the programming language Snap!. It has a "tail" depicting the Greek lowercase letter lambda (λ), which, in computer science, is often used as a symbol of functional programming.
