DID YOU KNOW
A beloved and unique creature, Dobby, introduced in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, was the first fully computer-generated major character in the Harry Potter films. Dobby went through many design alterations before the bat-eared, soulfully big-eyed, pointy-nosed house-elf emerged. The designers took into account Dobbys background as servant to the Malfoy family, and so he was given a pasty, sallow appearance, enhanced by grim skin and little or no muscle tone. His hunched posture reflects his years of abuse at the hands of the Malfoys.
