What is a Mulligrub?

If you were a kid in the 90’s (or a parent of one) you might recognize this iconic face from the popular children’s television show Mulligrubs.

Mulligrubs was an Australian television show that aired from 1988 to 1996. The main character was the ever expressive Mulligrub. Viewers only ever saw her face and heard her very high pitched voice. Fun fact, in order to achieve that very high robotic voice, the actress behind the face Di Kidd, had her dialogue run through a voice modulator.
