Eddie Retractorhead is an animated short series that aired on Nickelodeon UK in 2008 and was produced by Cosgrove Hall, best known for creating a variety of cartoons including Danger Mouse and Count Duckula.[1] The series features a blob of mucus, named Eddie, who was created by falling from space and landing on a tractor and a pie. Eddie lives in an inflatable pie house at Area 52 with his friend, an orange blob named Blam Blob, where they go on many misadventures while meeting other weird characters along the way.[2]


According to the official website, ten shorts were produced each running for about a minute long."[3] Previously, the shorts "Trailer," "Space Day Out" and "Explodeeeeitus" were available for over a decade, although one of the series editors, Tracey Cleland, uploaded the shorts "House" and "Speed Camera" onto her resume and Vimeo account in 2019.[4] In 2022, YouTuber "Lucas’s Archive" uploaded a VHS recording of the short "Olympics" airing on Nicktoonsters, and as of January 2023, only four shorts are still missing.
