The name translates as ‘Silly Idiot’ but the Bobalicon was in fact a terrifying Ogre from Spain. He had a tall lanky body with an oversized head and menacing grin. He would hover over his victims and scare them. However his weakness was that people easily duped him. He took a big part in Spanish festivals.
