|Other Mr. Bobinsky|
|Name:||Other Sergei Alexander Bobinsky|
|Affiliation:||Pink Palace, The Other World, The Beldam|
|Voiced by:||Ian McShane|
|Appearances:||Book and Film|
The Other Mr. Bobinky is the "other" version of Mr. Bobinsky in the real world. Like the real Mr. Bobinsky, he also owns a mouse circus. However, he is neater than the real one. He is the only other person to try to make Coraline stay in the movie (The other being the Beldam) He is the secondary antagonist.
The Other Mr. Bobinsky is the ringmaster of a circus of rats disguised as jumping mice, and he is almost identical to his Real World counterpart, except with less of a gut, a more pigmented skin color, buttons for eyes, and a much neater mustache. He wears a navy blue ringmaster's suit complete with gold trimmings and his liquidator badge. Once the Other Mother transforms all the residents of her Other World, he is reduced to nothing but a suit filled with his performing rats and a artificial, robot-like voice being replicated by the them. This is the scene were most viewers get "freaked out". When Coraline lifted his hat off, the head rat attempted to escape with the eye of one of the ghost children, otherwise the circus ball, only to be caught by the Cat. The Cat kills the rat that has the ghost eye and passes the Circus Ball over to Coraline in the front lawn of the Other Pink Palace.
- Fans joke about Other Mr. B in his second form about being "Drunk." due to his slurred voice.
- Other Mr. Bobinsky May Store his rats/mice in his chest.
- Despite being "Healthier." than real Mr. B, He still has an Abnormal skin color
- Towards the end of the film when Mr. Bobinsky is nothing but a ringmaster's outfit filled with rats, he mistakingly calls Coraline "Carolmushka". This is another reference to Mr. Bobinsky being Russian, as "mushka" is a Russian word.
- Besides the Other Mother and the rats, Other Mr. Bobinsky is the only other true antagonist in the film.
- (To Coraline) "Hello, Carolmushka!"
- (To Coraline) "Nothing's changed, little girl. And what if you do everything you swore you would? What then?
- Nothing's changed. You'll go home. You'll be bored. You'll be ignored. No one will listen to you, not really listen to you. You're too clever and too quiet for them to understand. They don't even get your name right. Stay here with us."
- "Every meal will be a thing for joy. Nothing will pass your lips that does not entirely delight you."
- "Frogs, ducks, rhinos, octopuses — whatever you desire. The world will be built new for you every morning. If you stay here, you can have whatever you want."
