The Newspaper Employee is a minor character in The Amazing World of Gumball. He first appeared in "The End" while standing in line at Food N' Stuff. He is also seen briefly in "The Laziest" and "The Helmet." The 3D Cube Employee appears to be a close friend of his. In "The Boss," it's revealed that he has an evil alter-ego, named Mr. Chanax, the founder of Chanax Inc., who appears when he is unfolded.


The Newspaper Employee is a bipedal, living ball of crumpled up newspaper. He wears black glasses, and his limbs are scrawny and black as well. His arms are made out of newspaper.

In Season 2, he is slightly changed, as he develops eyebrows, dots for eyes, and a mouth. His legs and arms look different, too.

In "The Boss," he gets yet another redesign. He remains the same as he did in Season 2, except, there are no newspaper writings all over his body. His eyes are also more "realistic." Despite this, he can be seen in his old design during the car chase in "The Law."

  • Based on a early concept poster, the Newspaper Employee was originally supposed to be a ball of scribbles.
  • Like Larry and Pantsbully, he has more than one job, as he is shown to work at both Chanax Inc. and the Rainbow Factory.
  • In "The Boss," it is revealed that he has an evil alter-ego -- Mr. Chanax.
    • Although "The Boss" is considered his final appearance, as Mr. Chanax dies in it, he still occasionally makes cameos around Elmore.
