Prometheus is a main protagonist of the stop motion animation segment Prometheus and Bob, seen on the Nickelodeon animated anthology series KaBlam!. He is a purple alien who tries to educate Bob on how to live in modern society, despite their kind living in a hunter-gatherer society. Each lesson is recorded with a remote-controlled camera. Prometheus's voice is often difficult to understand due to sounding distorted.

Usually, his lessons end with total chaos due to many factors he can't control. For example, the devious Monkey always interrupts the two with the intent to play pranks on them for fun, often ending with pain and frustration for Prometheus. Another obstacle for him is his boss, the Overlord. Being at bad terms, his employer has the misfortune to always come in the midst of a lesson. The Overlord thus has a very bad opinion of Prometheus, making his life even more difficult.

However, Prometheus's biggest weakness is his short temper. Even when he makes good progress teaching Bob, Prometheus normally finds his learning progression too slow. This ends with Prometheus throwing a tantrum, causing Bob to panic and forgetting anything he was being taught.

Trivia

  • In "Tape 677: Evolution Chamber" when Prometheus was devolved into his primal form, he resembles Bob in his appearance (sans his skin color), hinting at being related to Bob's species.
  • At times, Prometheus can be heard speaking English. According to Prometheus and Bob creator Cote Zellers, some of the dialogue would be reversed to avoid slip-ups of profanity.
