|“||I really don't mind you people watching me, although I do wish you'd share them. You're very selfish, taking me away from the children like that, you know.||„|

|“||Suddenly all those superstitions started to float away and I had no children to help, no parents to… well, you'll find out soon enough. And yet, there was one little form that I had left, one fun-loving character that could still reach inside those kids' heads and twist. I'm talking, of course, about Bobble the Clown.||„|

|~ Bobble the Clown|
Like many monster clowns, Bobble the Clown is a cruel and sadistic character hiding behind a cheerful and colorful facade. Through his TV show, Bobble performs various illegal and immoral acts, including torture, arson, cannibalism and stalking. He takes delight in all of these acts, and happily shares information to his audience on how to perform these acts effectively (such as using mosquito coils to set buildings on fire, or how to inflict painful but non-lethal wounds). Bobble loves nothing more than to twist and manipulate the minds of children into doing evil deeds, having taken many forms for millenia to accomplish this task. When deprived of an audience or otherwise rendered unable to broadcast his twisted messages, however, Bobble quickly loses his happy-go-lucky mask and becomes increasingly sadistic and vindictive, using his supernatural abilities to stalk and spy on his enemies to find their weaknesses, taunting them for a while before finally murdering them.
History and Procedure
Bobble the Clown was first discovered by the Foundation after they found his television show entitled Bobble the Clown, which has the designation of SCP-993. In each episode, Bobble would go around to different locations and learn a new lesson. However, if these programs are viewed by children under the age of ten, they will fall unconscious at the beginning of the episode and remaining that state until the episode ends, waking up with extremely painful and long-lasting headaches.
Child victims exposed to SCP-993 instances claim that the show teaches and endorses illegal, violent and horrific actions such as stalking, murder, torture, cannibalism, and many more. The episodes give careful and step-by-step instructions on how to commit these atrocities, and the actions become ingrained into subjects' minds, making them obsessed to carry out the actions themselves. Repeated exposure to SCP-993 cases can result in severe mental illness.
Episodes are released frequently from an unknown source, but in the 2000s, the SCP Foundation was able to block all of them from public viewing and obtain recordings of all documented episodes.
However, Bobble the Clown seems to be able to manifest from recordings of his show, and can even interact with or attack SCP Foundation personnel. He hates them for cutting him off from the children and wants revenge. In interviews that have been managed, Bobble says that he enjoys twisting children's minds and has been doing it through various means for millennia, possibly dating back to the caveman days and that Bobble the Clown is just one of its forms, its previous being the mythical skinwalker.
In an alternate dimension designated SCP-1730, Bobble was contained in the infamous Site 13. When questioned by a task force, he said he had been "broken". He had gotten a taste of his own medicine when Director Emerson, the site's director, had tortured him and played with him, and allegedly "got his jollies on" to doing such. At the end, Bobble opens the gate, while laughing maniacally, so Samsara can reach the Thresher room to end it all. Then Samsara who had emptied all their weapons to no avail on Elijah, an eldritch abomination, had activated it with a task force leader. Bobble along with everyone else present are presumed terminated or KIA except the Cheribum, Saturn, the KinetoHazard, and Elijah. Emerson is confirmed dead as well as the task force leader.
