Hoojibs were a species of small, white-furred beings. They had long ears and an antenna on the top of their heads, and moved on four legs. The smugglers Han Solo and Chewbacca brought a hoojib for the menagerie of the crime lord Jabba the Hutt, hoping to win his favor, though the critter was not what it had seemed.
Behind the scenes
- "As for how it happened… I kept trying to sneak Hoojibs in until they let me do it properly."
- ―Cavan Scott
