They look like yeast cellsEdit

Anyone notice they look like budding cells of Saccharomyces cerevisiae ? 69.121.20.42 (talk) 20:16, 18 June 2015 (UTC)

What I find odd about the last couple of revisions on this pageEdit

As anyone has noticed, I have edited this page for the following reasons:

"squeaks, squeals, and clicks"

This is sort of dumbed-down, as the article, from its second revision in 2006, said that the sorts of sounds they make include "squeaks, squeals, "poofs", and clicks". The only reason why it was called "squeaks, squeals, and clicks" until now was because someone replaced "poofs" with "poops", and further on, many people add to the page by saying that they make "sounds such as squeaks, squeals, clicks, and flatulences", "squeaks, squeals, clicks, and farts", etc. I think that "poofs" should be put back, as it is the closest thing similar to making a sound similar to farting that I can think of as of now (aside from "air bellowing", which was what I was thinking of placing in my edit).

"is a pink/ Boohbah"

This is sort of strange, as the second revision of the page said that the Boohbah (Jingbah) was fuchsia, which is technically a shade of pink. A regular pink would basically be much, much brighter than fuchsia, and while it is still brighter than an average shade of fuchsia, the shade of pink Jingbah is should be considered fuchsia, considering how darker and hot-pinkish it is.

"a spinning recharging pod"

This is redundant, as many sources say that the ladle-like hammock-beds inside of said thing, which does spin, are the pods themselves. The thing that spins the pods around should be called a base from now on, as the thing resembling currents of power leading to each pod and linking them to their branches is currently unknown. The way the pods are described in revisions before I came along are too redundant; they are said to resemble "five deep spoons" with the handles linked. Although their handles (and fronts) are linked to the "branches" on the so-called "base" monument, the "spoons", compared to the pods on-screen, look a lot like ladles, especially with their "deep" interior and upward-facing back handles.

Plus, the description that says they "alternatively" resemble "five fig halves" should be replaced with "one can say that the pods are the Boohbahs' beds or they resemble five fig halves", the former especially because many sources say that the pods are the Boohbahs' beds, considering how the Boohbahs appear to be sleeping in the pods almost anytime the latter are seen on-screen. I think we should add that too, as what I said is true.

The Boohzone isn't mentioned

On the show, upon leaving their pods and the Boohball itself, the Boohbahs enter their habitat, the Boohzone. Why this place isn't mentioned here astounds me, as said place appears every single time the Boohbahs are seen.

There are 104 episodes, not 65

According to Anne Wood, William Bickley, Michael Warren, the crew had to film 104 single episodes, with the Boohbahs beginning and ending their day being shot when the first episode is produced, their warm-ups and dances being introduced in the first thirty and higher episodes, and all said sequences being repeated later on to avoid wasting money. However, multiple sources say there are 65 episodes and not 104, and all 104 episodes are listed on the show's wiki (which I work on frequently). There are 69 episodes currently listed, but because I can't spend my time attempting to add several series episodes to the list, I would like someone to help me out with listing episodes 70-104. 2601:82:200:9E0B:AD91:5C69:DCC1:ADAE (talk) 22:22, 29 February 2016 (UTC)

Add categoryEdit

I wish to add this article to the Category:British television programmes featuring puppetry, as I feel that the Boohbahs use a type of animatronic puppetry when they move their eyes left to right. Just wanted to ask first. -- MisterBwaar (talk) 02:15, 11 November 2019 (UTC)

Do you have a source for that? You're probably right, but I want to make sure. Clarinetguy097 (talk) 22:37, 11 November 2019 (UTC)
Does this article from the Chicago Tribune count? https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/ct-xpm-2004-01-28-0401280066-story.html
Originally I was just going by the show itself visually, but this article did mention them being puppet-like. -- MisterBwaar (talk) 03:19, 14 November 2019 (UTC)
In my opinion, that article is too vague to support that the show features puppetry. Clarinetguy097 (talk) 18:43, 20 November 2019 (UTC)
