Mr. Flibble appeared on the BBC2 TV show Red Dwarf in the episode quarantine. Mr. Flibble was a small, penguin-like hand puppet utilized by A. J. Rimmer, the ship's resident hologram, when he was infected with a holo-virus. The holo-virus caused Rimmer to go insane, and he donned a red and white checked gingham dress and army boots. Later in the episode Rimmer chased the other main characters around while brandishing Mr. Flibble and channeling energy beams through his eyes. Eventually, Rimmer and Mr. Flibble were subdued and Rimmer was cured of the holo-virus, and the ship resumed its course towards Earth.

"Mr. Flibble's very cross."
-A.J. Rimmer
