Phonograph is a female character competing in Open Source Objects.
Phonograph is very sensible and usually has extremely good advice, however she always runs out of record when she speaks, so she sometimes gets cut off in the middle of her sentences. Despite this, no one takes her very seriously besides her closer friends. She is wise and honest. She can never tell a lie and is bad with secrets. At times she is too trusting of people, causing her much grief when people break her trust. She is not a hateful person, and is known to be quite calm.
She is an unsaturated maroon color at the base and a brownish-gold speaker. On her left side is a handle while on the right is her arm. She has a black record placed on top of her.
Episode 1 - "Who the hell recommended Glowing Heart"
Phonograph plays a minor role in her debut. She is first seen plummeting from the sky alongside Extension Cord, whom she apparently helped. Later on, Phonograph urges Sippy Cup to hurry up and get down to avoid being up for elimination, though her advice is interrupted by a record scratch.
Episode 2 - "Your Opinion is Invalid"
In "Your Opinion is Invalid", Phonograph teams up with Holly, whom immediately pulls out a Christmas vinyl and replaces Phonograph's own vinyl. Holly runs along the vinyl, rendering Phonograph unable to speak. The two encounter Roulette Wheel and Retainer as the competition continues, and both manage to win in the end.
Episode 3 - "The Good, The Bad, and The ********"
In the beginning, she was shown in the background to be playing some music which attracted some butterflies.
In the production of the play, she was placed on Green Crayon's team. She was one of the people who didn't want to do Holly's musical idea. She also suggested to GC that they do a horror play which GC took in part of the idea of doing everyone's play production. After some time, she asked Holly what should she do for the play since GC is busy with the others. Holly suggested that she should play the background music. She thought that was kind of lame, and she was hoping to play a lead role or something. Holly told that she needs to be flexible and being flexible means to anything that is possible even if it's hard. She told Holly that it isn't hard for her to do since she plays music anyway. Then, Holly says that it shouldn't be an issue then and if she ever needed any help then she can go to Coaster since she isn't doing anything as much. Afterwards, she walks off on-screen.
Before the plays start, she is seen working with Coaster on the music choices. She asked if she was okay since Coaster was looking bored or so. She said she's fine and she hopes the others know what they are doing. Afterwards, she slips and drops records. Phonograph starts to panic as this happens. She said to please be careful with those records and to put them back in the box as she said that they can figure out the order later since they are all labeled.
In the play, she plays as the narrator and plays the music for the play. As she begins to say her opening lines, Holly, eager to get out there, interrupts her monologue by singing. As Extension Cord's drama scene comes up, she accidentally plays a laughing track at an inappropriate time which she quickly stops.
After the plays are done, CB announces the best and worst productions of the plays. Unfortunately, her team got the worst production prize, and they were up for voting.
