First Appearance

The Patchwork Girl of Oz (1913)

Original Publisher

Reilly & Britton

Created by

L. Frank Baum


The Yoop is 21 feet tall, and weighs 1640 pounds; he is at least 400 years old and has a deep, bass voice. His temper is fierce and ferocious, with a ravenous appetite, preferring Meat People and Orange Marmalade. Since his imprisonment, he has had only six ants and a monkey.

He is dressed fancily, in a pink velvet suit with silver braid and buttons, pink leather boots with tassels, and a hat with an enormous pink ostrich feather.

When he was roaming free, he ate cows and sheep and sometimes knocked over people's houses. He was married to Mrs. Yoop, a powerful Yookoohoo; she also was a giant, but he does not share her magical abilities, and cannot transform himself to escape from his confinement. Since he abused his wife in the past, she was never willing to use her power to free him.
