show on Channel 4
in the UK
. Centres on a small group of aliens
from Hoobland, called Hoobs, who research human, or peep, life for Hubba-Hubba's Great Hoobapedia.
The trio, Ivor, Groove and Toola, start the show by stumbling on a question
to find an answer to, and always end up asking the Tiddlypeeps (children
), as well as Roma, who is a fourth Hoob on Earth
who wanders around on her own. Hubba-Hubba also gets them information
and orders them things from Hoobnet. At the end of each show they find the answer and then make a report
about it for Hoob News
This makes great "I-haven't-slept-yet" TV, because it's generally shown as a double-bill
at about six in the morning
, and doesn't deal with too many difficult social issues
and has some hooby-groovy songs
We're off to see the Tiddlypeeps!
