Don't Hug Me I'm Scared Wiki

"Looks like somebody's having a bad dream!"

—The Lamp, Episode 6

The Lamp is the secondary antagonist in Don't Hug Me I'm Scared 6. He attempts to teach Yellow Guy about dreams, even though Yellow Guy tries to end the song multiple times. At first he has no legs, however, once the first dream sequence starts, his legs appear.


The Lamp is a round lamp covered in pale yellow stars, with a red switch for a nose, and a sky blue top covered in white clouds. He has gloved hands, and long arms, and periodically long legs with red sneakers. He has eyes on the top of his body, and a long, thin red rectangular mouth under its switch. The star under its mouth occasionally glows. He also usually has crossed eyes. His shoes, legs, arms, and hands appear to be the same used for Tony in Episodes 2 and 6.


The Lamp has a temperament that can be regarded as spiteful, vitriolic, and even malicious, as evidenced by his mocking of Yellow Guy losing his friends, and ignoring everything he says, and rushing the lesson straight to him drowning in oil. It seems to purposefully disregard the things Yellow Guy says, and simply wishes to resume and complete the lesson. He can be considered the least qualified to teach lessons among all of the teachers in the show due to his considerably nonsensical and incoherent lyrics that fails to persuade a substantial objective or purpose.

The Lamp's song about dreams is of very poor quality compared to the other teachers, where the Lamp simply recites basic concepts regarding dreams before launching into a repetitive list of lyrics often starting with the words, "Or you can have a dream about...".
