Bilbil, as a Mifket.

Mifkets are primitive creatures who live on an island in the ocean.


Mifkets are neither animal nor man. Their heads are shaped like coconuts, with short coarse hair. Their faces are like putty, with small beady eyes, flat noses, and wide grinning mouths. Their bodies are pear-shaped, with short legs and long arms, and they wear clothes made of the colorful leaves of their island.

They live in a village made from the leaves of the island's plants. In the center of their clearing is a large flat stone where the king resides. (John Dough and the Cherub)

They are considered more similar to humanity than Tottenhots. (Rinkitink in Oz)

They are able to throw their heads at their enemies, similar to the Scoodlers. (Scalawagons of Oz)


The Mifkets are the dominant race on the island on which they live. Other residents include a rabbit named Pittypat, Para Bruin the rubber bear, and the Fairy Beavers.

Near the shore of the island is a broad swath of what looks like grass, but which is actually a mass of trees only an inch or two high. Beyond that is a magnificent forest, the trees of which are of various sizes, having sail-like leaves of every color but green, and abundant flowers only in various shades of green.

The Mifkets housed three prisoners on their island, a "Princess" and her parents. The parents were kept as slaves, and the Princess lived in a hut made from the giant leaves of the roi-trees. (John Dough and the Cherub)

Glinda briefly transformed Bilbil into a Mifket, as one phase of his transformation into his original form, Prince Bobo of Boboland. (Rinkitink in Oz)

When the first batch of Scalawagons flew into the Mifkets' territory, one of the Mifkets jumped inside. Jenny Jump kicked the cars back to Oz, with the Mifket inside. This was discovered when the Mifket bit Aunt Em. It was captured by Ozma, who gave it a job as a winder for Tik-Tok. Tik-Tok tired of the creature, however, and it was given to Number Nine's father, who soon also tired of it. It was returned to its own homeland, as Ozma decided it had no place in Oz.
