In-story information
Species"Troll Bear" with green hat

The main character is the eponymous "troll bear", encountering adventures in the forest, and occasionally the town nearby.

He is fond of sandwiches with cucumbers, and always carries around his "flaxkikare", (lit. akin to "flash telescope"), a telescope which could transport the user to the area looked at.

"Bobo" had his own magazine from 1978 to 1989.[1] A group of spin-off characters, "Gnuttarna", later had their own magazine.[1]
