I know when the other Boovs said, "Oh!" they were not happy to see me. The true is, among the Boov, I do not fit in. I fit out.
―Oh's realization to Tip.[src]

Oh (also known as J. Lo) is the protagonist in the DreamWorks film, Home. He is voiced by Jim Parsons.


The Boovs Evolved From Aquatic Creatures See The True Meaning Of Smekday. He is given his name by other Boov when he said hello.


Oh is generally talkative, optimistic, naïve, and annoying, but is friendly, well-meaning, selfless, heroic and intelligent. He is also shown to be a comic relief. Oh also seems to think Pig is a strange creature, since Pig is a cat and does not at all give meat or milk. Oh also happens to consider himself "super advanced in technology", even though he can't remember to turn off the capitals sometimes. Oh is also a heroic Boov; he grows into a Boov who runs toward danger and not run away from it, to selflessly help others, especially his friends.

Physical appearance[]

Oh is a male with a purple skin and cyan eyes. He wears a cyan and purple coat with a purple button on it. He has octopus legs.



At the beginning of the film in a Boov spaceship, Oh first appears, holding some balloons and knocking over several Boovs. He is seen waving and is excited about going to Earth (also known as Smekland by the Boovs).

Like all Boovs, he is placed into a new home (from one of the many apartments that were taken from the humans when they were "relocated" to Happy Humans Town). Oh plans a warming of house party and invites his neighbors. After realising that no one is coming to the party, he spots in the distance a Boov called "Best friend" Kyle who is a mid-level traffic officer. Oh then attempts to send and invite Kyle to his warming of house party, but instead accidentally sends an invite to every being in the entire galaxy, including the Gorg, that would reveal all of boov kind's location on Earth. Kyle attempts to arrest Oh, but is unsuccessful and Oh is able to flee the scene, eventually hiding from the Boov in a gas station.


  • [while inputting password] "My name is Oh and Captain Smek is awesome and anyone who does not think that is a poomp... 1."
  • [after Tip shows him his green hand, realizing that he's lying] "I doos not! I... Poomp..."[1]
  • [after locking Tip and her mother inside of slushious] "Tip cannot come into the out now, I am fixing my mistake!"
  • [to Kyle, after he sends his directions] "Fa-da! I have sent directions to my living space!"[1]
  • [after realizing that he accidentally presses "send all"] "It is not my fault! Why for put "send" button right next to "send all"?! [to Kyle] This is just a bad design."[1]
  • [after he eats a urinal cake thinking it is a blue mint] "AHH! DO NOT EAT THE BLUE MINTS!! [disgusted] Thankfully, there is a large bowl of lemonade." [drinks a urine thinking it is a lemonade] "UGH! DO NOT DRINK THE LEMONADE!"[1]


DreamWorks Wiki has a collection of images and media related to Oh.


  • In the book, Oh told Tip to call him "J. Lo," thinking it was a common name. Tip constantly referred to him by name, with everyone assuming she meant the actress. To pronounce his real name, a human would need three heads. The real J. Lo worked on Home.
  • Oh's realization of him not fitting in is justified throughout the movie.
    • His carry-on is over-sized compared to the other Boovs.
    • He was the only Boov who was not scared/shocked when the human baby was shown. In fact, he found them ugly and cute.
    • He was the only Boov to like the idea of a party.
    • His password was not "password", unlike other Boovs.
      • This uniqueness was noticed by Captain Smek saying, "Boov are not unique."
    • He "runs towards the danger."
      • Although wanting to do to a place with no Boovs (because of his mistake of sending an invite to the entire galaxy, thus revealing their location to the Gorg), he went to the Boov Central Command.
      • When the Gorg mothership caught up to them above Earth, Oh used the Gorg superchip to help the Boov escape.
      • When the Gorg started to destroy Earth, Oh ran towards the ship to return the "Shusher", which was actually an egg that contained Gorg larvae.
  • Despite being a protagonist, he bares a slight resemblance to Gallaxhar, as both are aliens who have stretchy arms as well as squid-like feet.
  • He was considered a super Boov for running towards the danger unlike his fellow Boov.
  • In Home: Adventures with Tip and Oh, he is voiced by a different actor Mark Whitten.
  • In the movie, he doesn't seem very tech-savvy and is quite incompetent and reckless. In the series, he is much more responsible and cautious.
