The Gnorbu ("nor-boo") is a fun-loving and social Neopet. They enjoy shopping, telling jokes, and hanging out with friends.

Before the art change, The Neopets Team would shear them once a year on January 6th. All Gnorbus, regardless of color, would then present as a SheardGnorbu, but luckily Gnorbu hair grows very fast and they were back to normal the following day.

Gnorbu were originally introduced as an April Fools' joke in Y7, but due to popular demand they were then redrawn to become official pets in Y8.

Gnorbu are 42cm (1.38ft) on average, making them one of the smaller Neopets.[1]

They are not limited edition, meaning you can create one any day of the year.
