Sketchbook is the main antagonist in the first Don't Hug Me I'm Scared. She teaches the puppets about creativity. Sketchbook also makes cameo appearances n the second and third episodes, and again in Don't Hug Me I'm Scared 6. She is voiced by the series co-creator, Becky Sloan. She is commonly referred to as Paige, although some fans call her Nancy.
She is a sketchbook with multiple pages. The first page depicts her face, which consists only of eyebrows, eyes and a mouth. She also is shown to multicoloured hair. Throughout the episode, Sketchbook's appearance constantly changes as she keeps flipping pages. On the pages there are several drawings such as a light bulb, leaves and sticks, a realistic heart and some storm clouds.
Sketchbook likes to be creative but she doesn't want anyone to interfere with her creative ideas. For example, when Yellow Guy suggests painting a picture of a clown, she destroys the painting by pouring oil all over it before quickly changing the topic. Later, when Yellow Guy says that green is his favorite color, Sketchbook quickly shoots him down and tells him "Green Is Not a Creative Color!"
- Doesn't allow the puppets to be creative in their own way.
- Pours oil on Yellow Guy's clown picture.
- Denounces green as not creative
- Indirectly causes the puppets to go insane and/or have hallucinations.

- Joseph Pelling mentioned on his twitter that Sketchbook's gender is paper. This is a joke as the Sketchbook is obviously female.
- The Sketchbook is commonly known to fans as "Paige," but this has been long debunked: its official name is Sketchbook confirmed by the official website by clicking the first picture and placing the cursor at the bottom to bring up the caption.
- It is also commonly assumed by fans that Sketchbook's gender is female, even though it is genderless.
- Sketchbook is a hand rod character much like the Lamp.
- She does not seem to show her anger in the outside, only on the inside.
- Sketchbook states that green is not a creative color, although she has a green strand in her multicolored hair.
- If one watches the first and sixth episode at the same time, the scene where Sketchbook covers the clown painting in oil is played at the same time where Yellow Guy drowns in oil.
- When Sketchbook shows the picture of the brain, the Temporal Lobe (the part of the brain that processes auditory information from the ears) is green. This could possibly mean that "Green is not a creative color" means that the ability to understand sounds is useless.
