Journal description

My editor. Used to love Mondays, now despises them.

Likes hot scoops, accolades, and slamming a table dramatically.

Interview notes

  • Lizbert used to be a renowned explorer.
  • Liz was disgraced when Grumplantis turned out to be a hoax.
  • Clumby thinks Bugsnax are a similar waste of time.
  • Also that only desperate losers would believe in Lizbert.


Clumby is grouchy and skeptical, specifically of the existence of Bugsnax and the credibility of Elizabert Megafig. Tired of the Journalist's tendency to chase "monster hunts", she threatens to fire them, unless they can return alive with proof of Bugsnax. She is quite reliant on coffee.

Personality Quiz: Which Grumpus are You?
Personality Quiz result Clumby.png

You think internet quizzes are hokey nonsense. You're three pots of coffee deep and if you have your way, you'll never sleep again.


At some point in the past, Clumby was, much like the player, a journalist investigating Snaktooth Island. In her expedition, she came across the Triplicate Space, where she met and interviewed Alegander Jamfoot. To prevent the information from this interview from becoming public, Clumby was recruited into the Snakolytes herself. She now uses her position at GNN to keep sensitive information from going public, feigning skepticism of Bugsnax.


Clumby is a short orange-furred Grumpus with a pink, oval-shaped nose and green eyes.
She wears white pointed glasses, a brown reporter's hat, and a lanyard that contains her ID card.
Her face shape is an overbite, the front row four big even round teeth and the row below three big round teeth, the middle one thinner than the two wider outer ones but all the same height.

Clumby bears a resemblance to Garfield [2] thanks to her orange fur, pink nose, and half-lidded eyes. Various other aspects of Clumby make this resemblance even more apparent.

  • She is a newspaper editor, and Garfield is a newspaper comic.
  • Her Journal description has the Journalist mention she "hates Mondays".
  • Her SnaxScope FlavorText has Lizbert joke about loving "Lasagna".
  • Her Personality Quiz entry mentions an excessive amount of coffee consumption.
  • Her Interview has her mention coffee consumption as well.
  • There are several newspapers taken by the expedition team and one has a headline on Lasagna Sales Rising - Record-breaking monday'. Clumby is the editor of this newspaper.
