Booji Boy, who was conceived in the early 70s, has traits of a simian child and typically wears a nuclear protection suit. He is portrayed by Mark Mothersbaugh in a mask and is the son of another fictitious Devo character, General Boy. The intent of the figure is to satirize infantile regression in Western culture, a quality Devo enjoyed elucidating. This character was officially introduced in the 1976 short film The Truth About De-Evolution.
According to the book We're All Devo!, the roots of the character come from discovering a baby mask in an Akron area novelty store. Mothersbaugh developed the character's distinctive high pitched falsetto almost instantly.
Booji Boy has been a staple of Devo's visual imagery throughout their career. He plays a prominent role in the video of their 1981 single "Beautiful World." He also appeared in the 1982 Neil Young film “Human Highway” in a very comical yet unsettling role predicting the end of the planet. Booji is also pictured on the cover art to Recombo DNA.
