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.
