Koozebanians - Strange creatures from the planet Koozebane seen on the puppet show THE MUPPET SHOW/SYN/1976-81.
The planet was home to many species, including Phoobs - blue, tasty creatures with bushy
eyes and two fangs with a chameleon-like ability to blend into the landscape (so
they won't be eaten);
Spoobles - a living red fluid that lives in a jar; Merdlidops - pink
furry crater-dwelling creatures, Fazoobs - a musical group of pink and purple
George and Martha - alien rock creatures.
When Koozbanians mate, they practice
the "Galley-o-hoop-hoop" mating ritual which produces "Wonk, Wonk" sounds and a
dance that motivates the mating creatures to run straight into one another like two
oncoming locomotives. The ensuing collision creates a litter of new babies.
The Koozebanian characters were first seen in the 1974 ABC "The Muppets
Valentine Show" and on episodes 107, 205, 208, 211, 223, 319 and 415, as well as
the later series MUPPET BABIES, LITTLE MUPPET MONSTERS and CITY KIDS.
Palisades Toys merchandised a
Koozebane Kermit Action Figure that included a Reporter Kermit, and a male, female, and baby Koozebanian.
