Iver, Tula, and Groove are Hoobs who come from Hoobland, a sunny, colourful, bouncy world. They travel the universe in their Hoobmobile, a colourful, imaginative bus that they live in as well as drive. Each day, they are charged with the task of finding out the answer to a question about the world they are visiting. They then report their findings to Hubba Hubba Hoob back home in Hoobland, who is compiling the enormous reference database called the Hoobopaedia. This information is then broadcast to Hoobs everywhere via the Hoobnet. Iver, Tula, and Groove are aided in answering the question of the day by several Hoobs and some people. Roma, the roving reporter Hoob, travels around the world and shows the group footage from her discoveries. Hubba Hubba also guides them throughout their investigations. But most importantly, the Hoobs visit Tiddlypeeps (children), who seem to be the most helpful of all in answering questions. The Hoobs are always amazed and surprised by their findings, and are anxious to report the answer to the question of the day on Hoob News.

Iver™ is the mover and shaker of the Hoobs. He is a natural leader and always ready to get things started! Iver tends to think ahead and foresee potential problems. However, he sometimes needs to be reminded to slow down. This purple Hoob often finds himself mediating between his friends Tula and Groove. But despite his businesslike nature, Iver is always ready to join in the fun. He’s the sort of Hoob we’d all want to have around!

Tula™ is a carefree, exuberant Hoob who seizes any opportunity to have fun. Her enthusiasm is both delightful and contagious. She is extremely creative and imaginative, and always has a project in the works. Tula’s nurturing side often takes over, and she finds herself playing the ‘mother’ role. This pink Hoob is the optimist of the bunch. It never occurs to her that things won’t turn out just fine.

Groove,™ in contrast to both Iver and Tula, is the laid-back member of the team. He is never stressed out and always seems very relaxed. However, once Groove latches on to an idea, he will stick to it, no matter what! This green Hoob is quite thorough and meticulous, and a great listener. The most musical of the three Hoobs, Groove has the ability to make an instrument out of anything. And his expansive collection of objects often aids him in his musical creations.

Roma™ is the roving reporter for the Hoobs and is never actually on the Hoobmobile with the others. An archetypal explorer — independent and fearless — Roma seems to know a little bit about everything, from geography to fashion to culture. Roma travels all over the world to give reports to the Hoobs. When on location, however, this orange Hoob often becomes so preoccupied with something she’s found that she forgets the actual topic at hand.

Hubba Hubba™ is the only Hoob we know who actually lives in Hoobland. He acts as the search engine for the Hoob group; he is a fountain of information and helps them in their discoveries. This wise blue Hoob uses the answers to the questions the Hoobs investigate to compile the Hoobopaedia. A parental figure, Hubba Hubba gives the Hoobs confidence to explore the world through play and experimentation.

Tootle,™ Twang,™ and Timp™ are the Motorettes™—sassy, sparky musical creatures who work inside the engine in the Hoobmobile. Their efforts allow the Hoobs to travel wherever they need to go. Once they hear the recognisable musical sting, they know it’s time to get to work! Indeed, these colourful creatures are very musical. They can be heard singing all sorts of catchy songs that pertain to the theme of the episode.

Iver, Tula, and Groove all live and travel in the safe, familial environment of the Hoobmobile—an ordinary bus from our world that’s been “Hoobified.” The Hoobs start up the Hoobmobile whenever they need to go in search of some Tiddlypeeps to talk to. But the Hoobmobile is more than just a means of transportation. It’s also a metaphor for the question, which is in itself the vehicle of discovery. Everything starts with a question...and who knows where that question will take you? Step inside it and you’ll find a huge, uncramped, Hooby world, unlike it’s former exterior shell. It is filled with the latest Hoobytechnology. Apart from the driving area, the Hoobmobile contains a recreation area, where the Hoobs can play, make things, sing, dance, eat and sleep. The all-important technical area of the Hoobmobile, houses all the Hoob technology, which is key to their research and communication. This is where the Hoobs communicate with Hubba Hubba and Roma. Another important area in the Hoobmobile is the Hoobystudio, where the Hoobs broadcast the Hoob News show. Instead of running on gasoline, as most vehicles do, the Hoobmobile runs on music! The Engine Room of the bus is comprised of all sorts of interesting musical elements interwoven with cogs, levers, plugs, and pulleys. The Motorettes live in the engine and power the Hoobmobile, acting as pistons. The minute the Motorettes hear a recognisable music sting, they know the key to the ignition has been turned. It’s time for them to get the engine working and for the Hoobs to visit the Tiddlypeeps. The Hoobmobile is off!

Character Line art

Welcome to the comprehensive Character Line Art section. Here you will find lots of character poses to use in those product designs that require 2-D graphics. Please refer to the Design Elements section for guidelines. When working with this line art, consider the following: • Please use the full-colour palette whenever possible, as this is the truest representation of the characters. • Use only the 2-D design elements in combination with line art. • Please use the limited-colour palettes only when such colour restrictions apply.

crayonlike shadow

• Do not alter any of the character colours. These have been approved as the official colours. • Each character pose has a crayonlike body shadow. Please exercise caution, as this shadow should not be shifted or altered in any way.

This logo is to be used with all 3-D designs:

01_LO This logo is an Adobe Photoshop 5.5 file. To use it in a layout, open both The Hoobs logo file and the background image in Photoshop. Be sure that the resolutions of both files are the same. With the logo layer active (with all layers linked except for the white background layer), simply drag the three layers onto the background art document. This will create three new, linked layers in the background art file. Now resize and position the logo as needed, keeping the three layers linked. When placing the logo on a dark background, change the ‘Jim Henson’s’ type and TMs to 10m/100y.

The 3 logos below are for use only with the 2-D design style:

Knit goodS Guidelines

Interpretation of style guide art for knit goods When it comes to interpreting Hoobs style guide art for socks and other knitwear, ‘less is more.’ Here are some helpful guidelines for simplifying art for knitwear: 1 Omit all fur shadows and highlights. They will not translate well. Rather than try to suggest a 3-D form, it is best to represent the Hoobs as clean, flat characters when knit. 2 Outlines should be limited only to interior areas, where definition is required. 3 The exterior form is stronger when it is defined by shape, not by line. Therefore, the background colour of the product should not be the same colour as the character. 4 With knit stitches, there is not enough allowance for eye highlights. Please omit all eye highlights and simplify any eyelashes. 5 Treat hair less as a series of strands and more as blocks of colour. 6 Since Tula’s mouth colour is so close to her fur colour, use purple for her mouth. 4

Embroidery & AppliquÉ guidelines

Digital style guide art and embroidered art have different advantages and disadvantages. For example, the intricate line work of the style guide art does not translate well in embroidery. On the other hand, embroidery reads more cleanly when line work is minimized; and appliqué offers an opportunity to show texture and form, given the choice of material. The key to getting the most out of embroidered art and especially appliqué art is to simplify. A literal interpretation of style guide art is not as successful as a more simplified version. Here are some helpful guidelines: 1. Remove all shadows and highlights in fur. 2. If necessary, the number of outline colours can be reduced. 3. Wherever possible, line work can and should be simplified. In this close-up of Iver’s hair, notice how deep the outlines cut in and how close they are to each other. When this is embroidered, as is, these lines tend to thicken and the area will look muddy.

5. Remove highlights in eyes. They tend to distort the eyes. Ideally, the eyes should be stitched with a high-gloss thread so that they create their own highlights. Simplify Tula and Roma’s lashes to just two lashes per eye.

NO

yes!

6. The same rules apply to appliqué, except that all outer outlines should be simplified even more and replaced with the same-coloured thread used to hold down the appliqué fabric. In the example below, the same-coloured thread is represented with a lighter tint of the body color, but in an actual appliqué, the thread and the fabric should match.

4. Outlines should be dropped entirely in some places. Small features, like the nose and mouth, tend to get distorted with embroidered outlines.

Appliqué works best with larger, more open areas. For this reason, small features—ears, eyes, nose, and mouth—should still be embroidered. Also, as many interior details as possible should be eliminated. Notice, for example, how Tula’s forearm line and upper arm line have been removed.

Preferred interpretation for appliqué

This will allow a better fabric display while still communicating the intended position of her hands.
