Not to be confused with Bobo the Bum.

"Bobo doesn’t actually provide any service, unless watching him Dumpster-dive is your idea of entertainment, but he does periodically appear and wander around the various districts. You can interact with Bobo but he won’t appear in your relationship panel or affect your Urb’s Rep."
- excerpt from The Urbz: Sims in the City Official Prima Guide

Bobo the Hobo is an Urb that appears in The Urbz: Sims in the City. He does not live in any district and may randomly visit the district or apartment, sometimes he will come if the player throws a party. Although he wears clothes from Central Station, he is treated by the game as a Gasoline Row Urb, and he has socials from Gasoline Row.

One notable glitch is that he does not appear in any Urb's relationship screen but his name can be seen in the Call Urb screen if the Urb knows Bobo. One way to tell if the Urb knows Bobo is to open the Call Urb and look for Bobo in the list, his name will be displayed if he is known by that Urb and will not if the Urb doesn't know Bobo.

He is similar to J.J. but unlike him, the player can make him join his/her crew so the player can control him whereas J.J. will refuse. Also, if Bobo's relationships are viewed from the relationship screen, the player can see his relationships. Like other Urbz (E.G. Scary Mary), if the player resets the game (By importing the players' Urbz), the only Urb that Bobo will know is the player and will lose all relationships will all official Urbz.
