Bova is a child from Uranus who always looks on the downside of life, which is probably an effect from living where the sun never shines. :o) He figures that if you dont get your hopes up, you'll never be disappointed. He has an extremely high metabolism which probably causes him to always be hungry. He can generate electricity through his antenae on his forehead. Out of all characters, Bova is, by far, the funniest I've seen. His negative comments are a comic relief when moments are tense. His perspective on life is both hillarious and sometimes true. Without him, it's hard to picture what the show would be like.
