The "Charger Pods" are five beds inside the Boohball.


All five Boohbahs sleeping in the pods

Information Edit

These pods are where the Boohbahs sleep and, hence their name, "recharge" energy.

A pod looks like a big white ladle, with glowing patterns etched on the exterior. The pod has a fuzzy interior where each Boohbah sleeps, with each one's pod being a lighter shade of that Boohbah's colour.

On the show, the pods are connected to a strange-looking "monument" of cells, which is apparently meant to represent currents of the Boohbahs' energy, with each pod's handle and front linked to the poles on the edges of the monument and parts of it illuminating in different colours randomly. The monument is attached to a spinning platform which circles the pods around when the Boohbahs are sleeping.

Trivia Edit

  • One can also say the pods resemble fig halves (due to their shape and the Boohbahs sleeping inside them almost reminiscent of the seeds inside of the fig being exposed) or that they look like hammocks.
  • The pods are the first (and last) place where the Boohbahs are located at the beginning and closing sequences of the show:
    • Opening: The camera pans above each Boohbah sleeping in its pod as they start spinning and each Boohbah is introduced; after each one is awoken from its slumber, they all fly out of them and go out to do a warm-up.
    • Closing: The Boohbahs fly toward the pods, nestle themselves in, and retract their heads. While they begin recharging and sleeping, we pan over them again and watch as the pods whirl around each-other and the Boohball flies off.
  • The pods are extremely similar in appearance to (and may have been influenced by) the Kamino chairs in the Star Wars film Episode II: Attack of the Clones. Like them, they are shaped like giant spoons and too have a white spot in the bowl; the things that set the pods apart from the chairs are that their users sleep in them, they can spin around, they are colour-coded, and they have a fuzzy interior.
  • In some books, like "Twirling, Whirling Swirl!", illustrations depict the pods as five beds placed on a fuzzy platform (without the cells filling in the gaps between each pod), making them look more like seats as opposed to hammocks. This also gives the illusion that if the pods were to spin, like on the show, they would circle around each-other manually and not propelled by the platform underneath.
