''The Hoobs'' was a [[InternationalCoproduction British-Canadian]] children's television show produced by The Creator/JimHenson Company, originally airing on Creator/Channel4 and NickJr UK from 2001-2002. In the United States, the show was available exclusively on Creator/{{Hulu}}, though has since moved to a service called [=TubiTV=]. It also once aired on Creator/{{Sprout}}. 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.

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Mark Jefferis's portrayl of Groove seems noticeably cheekier than John Eccleston's, though the character's love for his friends remains fully intact.

** 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'').
