Goblins are a sapient species seen in the 1977 animated film The Hobbit.


Like their literary counterparts, these Goblins descended from the Dark Lord Morgoth's Orcs after they fled to strongholds underneath the Misty Mountains. They appear as large and slimy creatures with lupine ears, scaly skin, protruding fangs, and the catlike eyes and nose of their Orckish brethren.
