Biography and PersonalityEdit
In the first film, viewers first see Boingo as a friendly, cute, and innocent rabbit who is one of Red's woodland friends. However, near the film's climax, Boingo betrays Red and is revealed to be the infamous Goodie Bandit and resides in a cave lair with his ski team, who serve as his henchmen (with Dolph, one of the ski team members, as Boingo's apprentice). It turns out that the bunny tricked Red into believing he's her friend as stated when he told Red, "You've been hoodwinked, baby!". In the same film, it is also shown that Boingo really loves carrot crumpets.
In Hoodwinked!, Boingo is first seen hitching a ride with Red on her bicycle. Red asks Boingo if he is still working for the Muffin Man, but the rabbit says that someone stole all the recipes last night and now, he doesn't have a job anymore. Red apologizes Boingo to for that and asks him if he is still running the cable car. Boingo says that he is, but it is nothing like eating goodies all day. Feeling bad for her best friend, Red gives Boingo a carrot crumpet to cheer him up and he thanks her for this. Then the rabbit happily hops away into the woods with his special treat.
Near the end of the film, Detective Nicky Flippers told Granny, Wolf, Twitchy, and the Woodsman that the real bandit was with Red when she fell from the cable car, knew a shortcut to Granny's cottage, was with Granny at the Xtreme Dream Snowsports Competition, and when Kirk's schnitzel truck's tires were stolen. The bandit is revealed to be Boingo.In Boingo's cave lair, Dolph is worried that the cops might find them, but Boingo tells his right-hand man to forget about the cops because they have everything they need in the lair. But Dolph fears that Granny (whom he refers to as the "old lady") is still alive and will be back. Annoyed, Boingo tells Dolph that he is done dealing with the Muffin Man and Granny, saying they can both take a hike. Red, who was secretly hanging onto Boingo's cable car, overhears Boingo and Dolph's conversation and realizes that Boingo is really the Goody Bandit. Boingo also says that he is never gonna answer to anyone ever again, and bursts out laughing evilly. After a conversation, Red tries to defeat Boingo in battle, but they both seem to be evenly matched. Boingo gains the upper hand and defeats Red because of his long ears (which he can also use as hands or to block someone trying to punch him). Boingo then orders Dolph to tie Red up, Lesa to hold the book, and Vincent to get the schnitzel truck which is now a bulldozer (not counting Keith, who is told by Boingo to change his name to Boris instead). Red tells Boingo he is crazy, to which Boingo replies, "Maybe so. But I'm top of the woods now, baby!" Then he starts singing "Top of the Woods" and concludes the big finish with, "You've been hoodwinked, baby!", while pointing at a tied-up Red (her mouth was also covered and tied up by Dolph). Meanwhile, Granny, Wolf, and the Woodsman see all of this and sneak in to save Red and capture Boingo and his minions (after taking on Dolph, whose clothes are taken off by the gang). However, after Wolf poses as a building inspector, he is defeated (but not Granny and the Woodsman). Boingo then sets the rope on fire with his ear and tells Granny that Red is "going for ride" and that there aren't any brakes on the cable car. Then he sets the cable car off on the zip lines and cackles evilly. So Granny gets on a bike, defeats Boingo's cronies, and runs over Boingo's head. Granny proceeds to let go of the bike and jump onto the cable car, and saves Red by having her climb up on her red hood. They then jump onto one of the zip lines, and the cable car falls off when Granny pulls the "Emergency" lever, and the cable car falls into the river and explodes. However, Boingo and his henchmen are right on their tail and Boingo shouts out to them, "End of the line, ladies!" and laughs evilly. So, Red and Granny both use their hoods as parachutes to lift themselves high in the air to avoid Boingo and his men. Suddenly, Boingo spots the police and he and his minions are sent zooming into a van. Chief Grizzly then closes the doors; however, before the van drives off, Twitchy tells Boingo to "say 'Parcheesi!'" and takes his picture. Then Boingo starts banging on the doors while screaming, "Not prison! NOT FOR A CUTE LITTLE BUNNY RABBIT!!!".
In Hoodwinked Too! Hood vs. Evil, Boingo is locked up in the London Bridge Asylum.
Red, Wolf, and Twitchy head to the asylum to ask Boingo who the witch is and where they can find Granny. Boingo didn't answer much of their questions, but thanks to Twitchy, they found a clue in his cell. Boingo did tell them that the witch was there and left a few minutes ago.
It is unknown what happened to Boingo after that, and it it also unknown what happened to his ski team.
Boingo is shown to be an incredibly skilled fighter, as revealed in his fights with Red and Wolf in the first film. He can also use his ears to pick stuff up or to block himself if anyone attempts to punch (or kick) him.
- When Boingo hops around, his feet always make chattering noises.
- At first, Boingo appeared to be a supporting protagonist in Hoodwinked!. However, near the climax, the rabbit was revealed to be the Goody Bandit, thus making him the main antagonist.
- His appearance in Hoodwinked Too! Hood vs. Evil referenced Silence of the Lambs. He creepily said (to an actual person walking by and not to Red), "Hello, Clarice." Boingo was also locked up tight at a mental asylum called the London Bridge Asylum and he helps Red a little by answering a few questions just like Hannibal Lecter, but he didn't have the iconic half-mask that Hannibal wore.
