Minor Characters featuredEdit
Kodiak Jack is a strange mountain man who owns the log cabin that Howard and Vince rent in Call of the Yeti. He sports an impressive array of injuries incurred by hunting the various animals in the forest where he lives.
He firmly believes that Vince is a woman, a misconception shared by many minor Boosh characters (one of the recurring jokes of the show), and even fell in love with him. Jack is eventually raped by very horny Yeti, although he actually seemed to enjoy this.
In the world of The Mighty Boosh, the Yeti are a race of tall, shaggy creatures with skull-like faces. They live in the woods, hibernating for 25 years and then reviving to find a man to mate with. They seduce their victims with a siren song of mellow hippy music, leading their victim to believe that "we're your family" and "everything you need within life". This musical spell is so potent that it affects apes (like Bollo) and even overcomes Naboo's "fortress"-like mind. In the end, our heroes escape and the Yeti end up raping Kodiak Jack. The Yeti featured in this episode are named Kachula, Panto, Tateta, Sakulu and Fanto.
