  • He seems to be the leader
    of the cult/following which involves his
    "friends" worshipping Malcolm.
  • Shrignold is the only teacher not to be based off an inanimate object.
  • The caterpillar Bird Guy killed at the end resembled Shrignold (possibly a dark, satirical look on abortion).
  • Because Yellow Guy is the embodiment of the young demographic that the show is parodying, he calls Shrignold "a little baby pigeon".


  • Shrignold seems to bear some similarities with the cult leader Sun Myung Moon with his views that God requires placation (like how the other cultists must feed Malcolm rocks) and how he arranges marriages.
  • Shrignold appears as a cameo in Don't Hug Me I'm Scared 6.
  • Shrignold is the most calm antagonist in the series, the only one who didn't force anything bad on anyone (he only asked Yellow Guy to join, and then of course force him into it.) However, if looked upon with the same satirical view on abortion that the ending gives, he could also be viewed as a predator, as Yellow Guy seems genuinely upset about the current events, and only Shrignold was with him the whole time.
  • He switches from having no heart to a heart on his chest.
  • He and the Sketchbook are the only puppets that didn't try to kill the puppets, plus he didn't act violent towards Yellow Guy unlike the other teachers.
  • [1]Duck Guy refers to Shrignold as a "Pesky Bee!"
  • When Shrignold appears in Don't Hug Me I'm Scared 6, his tone changes from calm and patient to seemingly angrier and threating, but this could be due to him singing faster than he did in Episode 3.
  • Yellow Guy screams at Shrignold when he comes back in Don't Hug Me I'm Scared 6, which is surprising seeing how patient and kind he was with him.
  • He spells 'harmony' 'harmunee'.
  • He most likely lost his memories, then forced the other members in the cult into doing the same, just like he tried to do with Yellow Guy.
