"Sunshine, daisies,
butter mellow,
turn this stupid,
fat rat yellow.
Ron Weasley casting this nonsense spell[src]

This spell was a nonsensical and non-existent charm fabricated by Fred and George Weasley that could supposedly change Scabbers' fur colour to yellow, but did not have such effect, as it was entirely fictitious, and nothing would happen.[1]

Behind the scenes

  • It is also possible that the reason the spell would not work is because Scabbers was not a real rat, but was in fact Peter Pettigrew, an unregistered Animagus in disguise.[2]
