Hubert Jason Cumberdale is a character featured in many episodes. He appears with Jeremy Fisher and Marjory-Stewart Baxter, though he gets more cameos in the series. Compared to the other two puppets, Salad Fingers appears to dislike Hubert and often describes him with negative terms, such as having an unpleasant taste.
Like Jeremy, Hubert gains a humanoid form in episode six. However, it is more malevolent in nature, making a screeching noise when interacted with.
Hubert is a white finger puppet with a sewn on mouth and black dots for eyes. He wears a dim coloured yellow shirt with stains on it and a dark blue bandana. In episode ten, he wore a top hat and black pants. In episode eleven, Salad Fingers encased Hubert in a suit of human skin, giving him the new appearance of a "flesh boy."
