Buboicullaar, or Bubo for short, was a male frog-dog that was kept in Jabba's Palace by Jabba the Hutt. He was often looked over as being unintelligent, but was surprisingly smarter than many of Jabba's thugs.[1] He once ate a detonation link needed for a bomb, foiling an attempt to assassinate Jabba. Ree-Yees, a Gran, had the task of looking after the creature.[3]

Behind the scenes[]

Buboicullaar was portrayed by performer Franki Anderson[4] in the 1983 original trilogy film, Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi.[2] Anderson was six months pregnant at the time and controlled the puppet from underneath the set.[4]
