The Blacky Pictures Test is a projective personality test for children similar to the TAT for adults The Blacky pictures were a series of picture cards used by psychoanalysts in mid-Twentieth century America and elsewhere to investigate the extent to which children's personalities were shaped by psychosexual development. The drawings depicted a family of cartoon dogs in situations relating to psychoanalytic theory. The main character, 'Blacky', was accompanied by Tippy, a sibling, and a mother and father. Blacky's sex was decided by the experimenter, depending on the subject who was taking the test.
The Blacky pictures' worth as a source of experimental data was questioned by psychologists, among them Hans Eysenck, and they since have fallen out of use.
