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.


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
  • It

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.


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.


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.
