** The episode "Bollo" is almost entirely based around the death of the titular gorilla. He becomes a major character in Series 2, and even makes a brief cameo later on in series 1, wherein the fact that he died a few episodes ago is not mentioned.

* HistoricalInJoke: In the episode where they get lost in the zoo, Howard's mentor sees Vince and shouts "A Mod! I am a Rocker, he is a Mod. We are mortal enemies!" This is a reference to the two eponymous subcultures which clashed in England during the early to mid 60's.
** The odd thing about this is that Vince worships Mick Jagger (no, seriously, he's got a shrine and everything) while calling himself King of the Mods, even though Jagger was very much a rocker.

The Mighty Boosh is a rather unusual British comedy series about two friends, Howard Moon (Julian Barratt) and Vince Noir (Creator/NoelFielding), who have bizarre adventures together. Howard is a humorless braggart with a love for jazz and a penchant for getting into trouble, and Vince--the "King of the Mods", the "Mayor of Camden", and the face of ''Cheekbone'' magazine--ends up saving Howard OnceAnEpisode, which tends to involve him talking to animals and wearing silly outfits. They eventually have to fight a MonsterOfTheWeek (usually in song) while meeting a range of strange characters, many of whom are also played by Barratt and Fielding.

The two work at a zoo and end up living together with the DeadpanSnarker stoner shaman, Naboo (played by Michael Fielding, Noel's brother, whose hair is the show's [[LineOfSightName namesake]]), and Bollo, Naboo's gorilla familiar (Dave Brown). Most episodes focus on Howard and Vince leaving the zoo (first series), their flat (second series), or their second-hand goods shop (third series), for a number of distant locations. Including the Arctic tundra, Monkey Hell, and the planet Xooberon.

The humor of the show is based on a combination of non-sequiturs, pop culture references, psychedelic visuals, and musical interludes. The look of the show is intentionally low-budget but highly creative. The humor ranges from the silly to the surreal, but always stays happy and sweet. Much like a children's show, only with balls jokes.

Part of the show's appeal is its home-made vibe. The visual elements (including the animations) are based on Fielding's art, while Barratt composes all of the music (and plays a mean guitar). Many of the extras are Barratt's and Fielding's friends and family.

''The Mighty Boosh'' was originally a stage act, then a radio series, before it became a TV show. It then returned to the stage between series two and three, and another live tour took place between 2008 and 2009. The whole crew reunited in 2013 for several music-centric stage shows in the UK and one at Festival Supreme on Santa Monica Pier.

* CloudCuckooLand: The place Howard and Vince live in is supposed to be London, but instead of British currency they use euros, all people everywhere go on bizarre rants without police interference, animals attempt to get busy with humans and no one finds it odd, time travel is as simple as hailing a taxi, and strange, immortal Cockney green witches inhabit the streets.
