Svengoobles is a character featured in the episode, On My Way. He is a popular TV personality hosting late-night showings of horror movies portraying a vampire character and appears as a judge at the 2012 Midwest Regional Championship.
He is portrayed by Glee co-creator Ian Brennan.
He appears in On My Way as one of the three judges of the 2012 Regionals competition, and it is apparent from the response from the audience and people like Finn, Sugar, Blaine and Sam that he is very popular. However, Kurt seems afraid of him. When the performances end, he emerges from a coffin brought on stage by two stagehands to announce the results.
- Svengoobles' name is a parody the character Svengoolie, host of the old local TV series Son of Svengoolie, broadcast in Chicago.
- This was Ian Brennan's first on-screen appearance. (He is best known as one of the co-creators of Glee and the voice of the, "and that's what you missed on Glee" segments at the start of many episodes.)
- This is the second time someone that co-created or writes for Glee appeared in the show. The first was Michael Hitchcock appearing as Dalton Rumba in the episodes Hairography, Sectionals and Makeover.
- Some people mistake his name to be Svenboolie.
