The male Koozebanian presents himself to the amused female in The Muppets Valentine Show.

107 hoop hoop

The Koozebanians mate on The Muppet Show.

The Galley-oh-hoop-hoop is the mating ritual of a species indigenous to the planet Koozebane. The creatures' activities have been reported on twice, first on the 1974 special The Muppets Valentine Show and again on The Muppet Show episode 107, but their species' designation has yet to be revealed.

Kermit the Frog, the reporter on the scene, refers to them only as the "male and female Koozebanian creatures," suggesting that they are the dominant species on the planet.

The ritual itself involves the male and female charging toward each other, each howling their cry of supposed passion. Upon impact, the male and female instantaneously dematerialize, leaving a litter of four babies in their place. The Valentine Show version of the sketch featured an additional overture, where the male creature stood on it's head.

The Galley-oh-hoop-hoop reappeared in audio form in The Muppets' Wizard of Oz. The sounds of the mating ritual were among the many forest sounds heard right before the Lion's first appearance.

Orthographical note

The spelling "Galley-oh-hoop-hoop" comes from The Muppet Show Book, which adapted the sketch in storybook form.
