Gobbo in The Adventure of Gobbo and the Watchmaker archiveGobbo is a goblin who doesn't like adventures. What Gobbo likes best is sitting in front of his fire eating rhubarb and drinking dandelion ale and farting. If Gobbo had to make a list of the top ten things he didn't like it would probably begin with: 10. Going down river rapids in a leaky canoe; 9. Being captured by eagles; 8. Falling down thousand foot cliffs, which is a shame for Gobbo, because those are just some of the things that happen to him in The Adventures of Gobbo and the Watchmaker. The trouble is that Gobbo's best friends - the brave and cheerful Globachan 'We'll be fine' and Globachan's clever and plucky daughter, Pixie Pumpkin 'How did you know I had a time shield?' - just can't resist an adventure. But this time, they must meet the scariest baddie yet - the Watchmaker and his mechanical army. A show with live music, lots of dancing, some funny bits and a raffle with good prizes, Gobbo is a production for the whole family.
