Blobs, unlike most species on ''[[Futurama]]'', are non-humanoids. They travel by sliding around on the floor using all six limbs for arms. Blobs do not possess a one-way digestive system, instead they are able to swallow any food, or annoying human, so long as it will physically fit inside them. Swallowed items will sit, visible, inside them until digested or otherwise removed from the body. Humans have the ability to remove small items, such as [[Popplers]], through the chest of a Blob, but are unable to get themselves out should a Blob swallow them. This may not be the case if the swallowed human is carrying salt, because salt de-solidifies Blobs temporarily.

Episode

Venusian Blobs are a species of jellyfish-like aliens from Venus who have settled on Earth and what appears to be the artificial rings of their planet, and are easily angered. An unknown Blob apears on the Earthican $20 bill.

The first example of their existence is the words Venusians Go Home plastered around the city in AL1. Venusians seem to use AL2, as a van is see with the words A Venusian Corporation written on it in AL2.

The identity of the species is only hinted at in the series via the painting Venus de Venus that Bender showed the Planet Express ship. It clearly shows a female of the Blob species, so we could deduce that the Blobs are in fact Venusians, much like Humans are usually Earthicans. However they are explicitly referred to as Venusian Blobs in Game of Drones

Anatomy[edit]

Blobs, unlike most species on Futurama, are non-humanoids. They travel by sliding around on the floor using all six limbs for arms. Blobs do not possess a one-way digestive system, instead they are able to swallow any food, or annoying human, so long as it will physically fit inside them. Swallowed items will sit, visible, inside them until digested or otherwise removed from the body. Humans have the ability to remove small items, such as Popplers, through the chest of a Blob, but are unable to get themselves out should a Blob swallow them. This may not be the case if the swallowed human is carrying salt, because salt de-solidifies Blobs temporarily.

Blob reproduction is unknown, but may involve their spewers, which may-or-may-not be exclusive to the female anatomy. Spewers are apparently offensive to some people, despite being seen in popular art.
