Gobo is a sprite that comes with all installations of Scratch. With 20,176 uses on Scratch as of February 14, 2011, it is the ninth most common sprite used on projects uploaded to the Scratch Website (after buttonPressed).[1] Gobo was named "Gobo" by Scratch Team member Natalie Rusk.[2] It was drawn by Wing Ngan.[3]


The Gobo sprite is the most commonly used sprite in the Fantasy category of Scratch costumes and the only creature made by the Scratch Team.

A modified version of Gobo is used as the logo for the Scratch modification Build Your Own Blocks. It has a "tail" depicting the Greek lowercase letter lambda (λ), which, in computer science, represents the time window over which a process is observed for determining the working memory set for a digital computer's virtual memory management.

The Gobo sprite is currently used to give the viewer of a project information on why it was removed if multiple Scratchers have flagged it.
