Doop is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character appears in the Marvel Universe, created by writer Peter Milligan and artist Mike Allred. He made his debut in X-Force vol. 1 #116. He is a green, floating spheroid creature of unknown origins who speaks in a "language" all his own (represented in text by a special font).
Doop was a dance music production act from the Netherlands formed by Ferry Ridderhof and Peter Garnefski, who would later record under the name Hocus Pocus and various other project names. They were producers and band members of Peplab.
In 2011 Doop released an E.P. called The Doop eepee produced by Ferry Ridderhof containing the single My Chihuahua.
Doop was best known for its eponymous single, which reached No. 1 in the UK. The song was influenced by the Charleston, a 1920s dance, and was most remembered for its lyrics, which consisted entirely of the word "doop" sung over a fast-paced big band sample. In the USA, a remix of the track by legendary house-music artist David Morales was released.
Hocus Pocus was best known for its single "Here's Johnny," which reached No. 1 in Australia.
"Doop" is a 1994 song recorded by Dutch techno group Doop. It was released in February 1994 as first single from its debut album Circus Doop and achieved success in several countries, including Ireland, U.S. (where it hit number two on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play), and spent three weeks at number one in the UK Singles Chart in 1994. It consists of a Charleston-based big band number set against a techno backing track. Two main versions (each with its own corresponding radio edit) were issued featuring different big bands, with the "Urge 2 Merge radio mix" combining sections of both. In 2005, the song was covered by Looney Tunez vs Doop.
