But, where does the word Bandersnatch come from and who wrote the book it was first mentioned in? Here’s all you need to know.
Where does Bandersnatch come from and what does it mean?
The word Bandersnatch was first seen in the poem Jabberwocky.
It was a nonsensical word created by the poet and mentioned in the last line of the second verse: “The frumious Bandersnatch!”.
The word can be interpreted in various ways, thanks to it being a fake word.
Some believe it refers to a swift-moving creature that can extend its neck and has a snapping jaw.
However, others highlight the fact that “bander” was an archaic word for a leader and, thus, suggest that Bandersnatch may refer to an animal that hunts leaders of groups.
Who wrote Jabberwocky?
Jabberwocky is a nonsense poem written by Lewis Carroll.
It is about killing a creature referred to as “the Jabberwock” and was included in the author’s 1871 novel Through the Looking Glass, and What Alice Found There.
In the novel, Alice finds a book written in an odd language.
She later realises, as she’s travelling through an inverted world, that the verses of the poem are written in mirror-writing.

What is Black Mirror Bandersnatch about?
The official synopsis for Black Mirror: Bandersnatch reads: “In 1984, a young programmer begins to question reality as he adapts a sprawling fantasy novel into a video game and soon faces a mind-mangling challenge. Welcome back.”
But as the show has a choose-your-own-adventure format, and it’s claimed five hours of footage was filmed all together, fans can be watching it for hours.
This summer, parts of Croydon were transformed into 1980s-style shopfronts for the movie, including a WHSmith shop full of music and books from the time.
Locals could have been forgiven for thinking they’d slipped into a time-warp as brands including a retro Pizza Hut and Wimpy began appearing in the South London suburb.
