From the MoviesPaploo is an Ewok scout in Chief Chirpa's village and a close friend to Wicket W. Warrick and Teebo. Known for his brazen actions and foolhardy bravery, Paploo was the Ewok who stole an Imperial speeder bike as a distraction for the Rebel strike team. Paploo is a cinnamon-colored Ewok, with a smooth stone set in the center of his tan head-dress.
From the Expanded UniverseA boisterous, prank-playing Ewok, Paploo would often get into trouble with his domineering mother, Bozzie, not to mention his uncle, Chief Chirpa. He had all manner of misadventures in his youth alongside his friends Wicket, Teebo, Latara, and his cousin Kneesaa.
As he grew older, Paploo grew more serene and insightful, studying the mystic ways of the Ewok shaman. When Logray was removed as medicine man by Chirpa for practicing dark magic, Paploo was named Ewok shaman. One of Paploo's first acts was to remove a curse placed on the Ewok village by Logray. The Golden One, C-3PO, aided Paploo in this ritual.
Behind the ScenesPaploo was played by actor Kenny Baker, who also played R2-D2. Baker's Ewok was originally going to be referred to as Wicket, prior to the casting of young Warwick Davis as Wicket.
