"I'm a computer. I'm a computer-y guy."
Colin the Computer is the main antagonist of "Don't Hug Me I'm Scared 4" and a minor character in "Don't Hug Me I'm Scared 6." He teaches the main trio about computers and the Internet. He is voiced by Joe Pelling.
Colin is a normal-sized computer puppet with square eyes and a square mouth near the bottom of his monitor. His screen is dark and rectangular, with a graphic of a wrench, nut, and screw on it. Occasionally, images flash on his screen when he thinks of something. He has multicolored keys that change colors multiple times throughout Episode 4. His left hand appears to be able to change into a pointer or an hourglass. When he gets angry, he has bloodshot eyes and his hands turn into red wires shaped like human hands.
When inside the digital world, Colin's appearance notably changes. He gains legs made from computer wires, and he has a computer mouse for each foot. His keyboard becomes his torso.
He is arrogant, bragging about how "clever" he is and singing about himself. He also seems to be quite interruptive. Sometimes he ignores questions posed toward him, preferring to talk about himself, or the "digital world." He likes gathering personal information and seems to be obsessed with oats, continuously showing them to the puppets.
- Trapped Yellow Guy and Duck inside the Digital World, brainwashing them.
- Interrupted Gilbert the Globe.
- Acted rude towards Red Guy.
- He was confirmed to be named "Colin" by Becky Sloan on her twitter account, although his name was never used on-screen.
- Colin demonstrates the largest vocal range of any character in the series.
- He seems to dislike Red Guy but, he's somewhat indifferent towards the other puppets, since they did not ask him too many questions like Red Guy did, and because they did not touch him.
- Colin's keyboard changes in various shots.
- Colin's late responses to Red Guy is possibly a reference to slow internet.
- He doesn't like to be touched.
- He seems to like asking them questions instead of answering their questions.
- This shows that, like Tony, Colin is evasive about answering questions when it's against him or his teachings.
- Despite claiming that he is clever, he has been shown to make some grammatical errors while speaking. ("Do a digital dancing" and "count to a fifty in a blink of my eye.")
