Always announcing

The Announcer's name tells all, as he serves as an announcer or host wherever one is needed. He doesn't really let his personality show through, so little is known of him as a character, except that he does seem to be eager to do his job. He first appeared in the children's book, and hasn't changed very much since then. He has a pear-shaped body with no visible legs, a long slender neck, and a large black mustache. He always seems to be wearing a purple suit and tie (or, on some occasions, a tuxedo) and monocle. While he rarely makes actual on-screen appearances, his voice, which is earnest and mostly British, is used quite often. He resembles the members of The Barbershop Trio.
