If you’ve found this article, you must also be wondering the question:
What kind of animal is Booba?
Booba is, of course, the goofy furry guy in the cartoon series on Netflix and YouTube. The Netflix description about the TV show says:
The world is a mystery to little Booba. But he approaches the curiosities around him with wonder, finding adventure in his everyday surroundings.Netflix
I have scoured the internet to try to find out exactly what Booba is supposed to be.
What Exactly Is Booba?
Is he a rat?
Is he some kind of wolf?
Is he a yak?
Is he even an animal at all?
Unfortunately, the only descriptions of him I could find are things like:
- A curious creature
- A furry creature
- Funny and curious little creature
- A strange creature
What He Could Be
I think he could maybe be some kind of hairy hobgoblin. A partial definition of a hobgoblin on Wikipedia is:
Hobgoblins seem to be small, hairy little men.Wikipedia
Or maybe Booba is supposed to be a small Yeti or Abominable Snowman.
That could make the most sense.
According to Wikipedia:
The Yeti (/ˈjɛti/), also known as Meh-Teh in Himalayan folklore, is an ape-like creature purported to inhabit the Himalayan mountain range in Asia.Wikipedia
Booba is a Russian TV show. And the Himalayan mountain range is south of Russia in Asia.
Maybe the creators of the Booba show used the folklore and ideas of what a Yeti is to create their main character of the show.
