The Hoo-hoo is a species of firebird native to Japan.[1]

History

When Japan beat the USA on the match for the third place of the 2014 Quidditch World Cup, on 9 July 2014, the Japanese presented the American side with a Hoo-hoo chick.[1]

Behind the scenes

  • Hō-ō (Japanese: 鳳凰ほうおう), sometimes known in English as the hoho bird, is the Japanese pronunciation of the more common Chinese name, Fenghuang, a bird from East Asian mythology with similarities to the phoenix. This same creature also served as the inspiration for the phoenix-like Pokémon, Ho-Oh.
  • In the 2018 audio edition of Quidditch Through the Ages, Imogen Church as Ginevra Potter pronounced "hoo-hoo" as "who-who", which is very different from the Japanese 鳳凰Hou Ou pronunciation.[2]
