The Hoobs

Show Summary

Welcome to The Hoobs guide at TV Tome. The Hoobs is an award winning series currently showing on Channel 4 in England, but is on all over the world. The colourful creatures have captivated viewers since they hit our screens. Hubba Hubba head of Hoob Land has sent four of his favourite Hoobs Iver, Tula, Groove and Roma to find out things on the Earth (Which Hoobs call the Peep planet). On the Hoob's version of the Internet (HoobNet), there is an enormous database called the Hoobabeadia (Like encyclopaedia.) It is the Hoob's Quest to fill it with all the information they can find! A Jim Henson Company & Jonathan M. Shiff Productions production.


IVER: Iver is the planner of the group. An extremely organised Hoob, who needs everything just so to get through the day. It's not that hard to loosen Iver up though, and though meticulous, he loves having fun just as much as anyone. He dos get frustrated if he can't do something straight away, because he's wants to get things done on time, but given the right support, Iver can turn his hand to anything.

TULA: Tula is a very easygoing exuberant Hoob who just loves adventures. She is very creative and there's nothing she likes more than going through her Hooby bits box to see what she can make. Although she is normally very kind and considerate, there are times when she can become unintentionally bossy, but she's loved all the same.

GROOVE: Groove is the most laidback of the Hoobs. He is also the most musical but the main thing he is known for is his huge collection of... collections! He has one for anything you can think of, and loves nothing more to spend his time sorting through them or adding to them. Groove unfortunately does have an extremely stubborn streak at times, and once he gets an opinion into his head, it's extremely difficult to get it out. He also gets distracted quite easily...

ROMA: Roma is the explorer of the group. She is very rarely seen in the Hoobmobile because she roaming all over the planet trying to find things out for Hoob News. Like Groove, she also can get distracted easily. But she is always ready to help whenever she needs to and is always up for an adventure.

HUBBA HUBBA: Very much the father figure. He remains in Hoobland finding out all the infomation that they will need on HoobNet.

THE MOTERETTES: When the Hoobs need to go somewhere in the Hoobmobile, they just turn the key and the Moterettes start singing. The Hoobmobile runs on music!

TOOTLE: A very smooth singer, and often sings a few solos in the songs.

TWANG: He can sing quite a few different styles but favours opera. He likes to sing the right words to songs... Unlike

TIMP: Timp is the most fun loving in the trio. She can be extremly silly sometimes, providing viewers with the most laughs.


Hoobledoop: Hello!

Hoobletoodledoo: Goodbye!

Hoobacious: Wonderful

Hoobellygrobelly: Fantasic

Hoobygroovy: Cool and groovy.

Peeps: Grown ups.

Tiddlypeeps: Children

Squigglytiddlypeeps: Babies

Wrinklypeeps: Old people.

Hoobybooboo: A mistake.moreless

    Iver, Tula, and Groove are Hoobs who come from Hoobland, a sunny, colourful, bouncy world. They travel the universe in their Hoobmobile, a colorful, imaginative bus that they live in as well as drive.

    Each day, they are charged with the task of finding out the answer to a question about the world they are visiting. They then report their findings to Hubba Hubba Hoob back home in Hoobland, who is compiling the enormous reference database called the Hoobopaedia. This information is then broadcast to Hoobs everywhere via the Hoobnet.

  • Leave it to the Jim Henson to come up with a great show like this.

    I like watching this show, it's one of the best show since bear in the big blue house. Its very educational and very entertaining and I think it's good how they break it down in to bits so children can understand how the ways of the world work. I also like the way they say their catch phrases e.g. Hooble tute (means hello) and : Hooble tooble doooo (means good bye). I also think the children that make an appearance on the show are very good. Unlike most shows where children are to scared to talk, don't say anything or talk to quietly, the children on this show are very bubbly, full of life and look very happy to see the hoobs and thats what seperates this show from other childrens shows. If you like jim hensons creations or love puppet shows, then this one to look out for, but for now from me to you HOOOOBLE TOOOBLE DOOOOOO!!!!!moreless
