''The Hoobs'' was a [[InternationalCoproduction British-Canadian]] children's television show produced by The Creator/JimHenson Company, originally airing on ChannelFour and NickJr UK from 2001-2002. The eponymous Hoobs were a species of alien creature reigning from the fictional Hoobland (in reality these creatures were played by {{muppet}}s), sent down to Earth by their [[TheMentor mentor]] Hubba Hubba to gather as much information about Earth as possible. Three of these Hoobs -- Iver, Tula and Groove -- were handed a [[{{Thememobile}} Hoobmobile]] that ran on singing motors (yes, ''really'') while they travelled the UK. The fourth, Roma, was sent to other parts of the world, like Oceania, Europe and even Antarctica to report on her findings which the other Hoobs would watch on a large screen.

Added DiffLines:

** HumansAreFlawed: That said, the show does not shy away from exploring some of humanity's flaws -- it briefly touches upon matters such as criminals (''Iver Five-O'' and ''Bossy Boots'') and the mistreatment of animals (''Not A Horse'').

* AliensSpeakingEnglish: Subverted. Though the Hoobs mainly spoke English, they had words and phrases which were exclusive to their home planet, including "Fan-tabby-hooby!" for "fantastic" and "peeps" for human(oid) adults.

Added DiffLines:

* JerkassBall: While fairly mild examples of this trope, Iver, Groove and/or Tula can pick this up whenever they become either too obsessed with answering the Hoob News question, or couldn't care less about it. Iver is often an example of the former, while Groove is usually the latter.

* HumansAreTheRealMonsters: Averted ''hard''. The Hoobs frequently look to the "peeps" for knowledge and wisdom.

* Hubba Hubba would then gather the Hoobs and then formalise the procedure to add to his '''[[GreatBigBookOfEverything Hoobapaedia]]'''. This involved emailing Roma the task so she would be able to report her expertise to the rest of the Hoobs.
