Shrignold is a Butterfly that leads the Love Cult seen in Don't Hug Me I'm Scared 3. He teaches Yellow Guy about love and couples, and attempts to recruit him. He appears in the beginning as a caterpillar, but appears as a butterfly when he talks to Yellow Guy after Duck Guy swats him with a fly swatter.
- "And you will never be alone."
- "Makes you sad doesn't it? That there's so much hatred in the world."
- "But maybe I can hold your hand? And together we can understand about love..."
- "To love each other is to care, to be kind..."
- "And it's protected with a ring!"
- "No, no, no! That's not how it's done! You must save your love for your Special One..."
- "Come and meet some of my friends, they all know about love."
- "Come on! Just over the rainbow!"
- "It doesn't have to be, 'I hate you and you hate me' "

- Shrignold is the only teacher not to be based off an inanimate object.
- The caterpillar Bird Guy killed at the end resembled Shrignold (possibly a dark, satirical look on abortion).
- Because Yellow Guy is the embodiment of the young demographic that the show is parodying, he calls Shrignold "a little baby pigeon".
- Shrignold seems to bear some similarities with the cult leader Sun Myung Moon with his views that God requires placation (like how the other cultists must feed Malcolm rocks) and how he arranges marriages.
- Shrignold appears as a cameo in Don't Hug Me I'm Scared 6.
- Shrignold is the most calm antagonist in the series.
- He switches from having no heart to a heart on his chest.
- He and the Sketchbook are the only puppets that didn't try to kill the puppets, plus he didn't act violent towards Yellow Guy unlike the other teachers.
- Duck Guy refers to Shrignold as a "Pesky Bee!"
- When Shrignold appears in Don't Hug Me I'm Scared 6, his tone changes from calm and patient to seemingly angrier and threating.
- Yellow Guy screams at Shrignold when he comes back in Don't Hug Me I'm Scared 6, which is suprising seeing how patient and kind he was with him.
