Grabbin' Goblin
Austin Playing as ''The Grabbing Goblin''

The Grabbing Goblin is a goblin who has a compulsive habit for taking away others' belongings. He once grabbed King Pablo's dragon egg, which he nicknamed "Eggwin".


The Grabbing Goblin has green skin in his first two appearances and purple skin in "The Tale of the Not-So-Nice Dragon". He wears an orange pumpkin hat along with a brown hoodie and pants.


The Grabbing Goblin is really good at stealing. He is also able to walk on walls, ceilings, and other vertical/upsidedown surfaces without falling off.


Austin has played the Grabbing Goblin in three episodes of The Backyardigans: "Tale of the Mighty Knights: Part 1" and "Tale of the Mighty Knights: Part 2" from season three, and "The Tale of the Not-So-Nice Dragon", the finale from season four.
