Commander Hoo-Ha Smiles is a recurring antagonist of Camp Lazlo.
He is the leader of both Camp Kidney and Acorn Flats and the father of Patsy Smiles.
He is voiced by Jeff Bennett.
Commander Hoo-Ha is a sadistic muscular bison whose name comes from the military exclamation "Hoo-Ha" (or "Hoo-rah"). He is in charge of both Camp Kidney and Acorn Flats, and possibly Tomato Camp as well. It seems that he doesn't know Slinkman's name because keeps calling him "Slugman", which Slinkman tries to unsuccessfully correct. He does not seem to know or care what a platypus is and refers to Edward as 'some sort of beaver-duck'.
His daughter is Patsy, of the Squirrel Scouts, and Hoo-Ha is highly protective of her, sometimes to the point of violence, as shown when he figured out she likes one of the Bean Scouts (by finding a valentine card she wrote), he ordered her to beat all of them so he could figure out which one she likes when she hesitates to beat him. When it was Lazlo's turn to be beaten, she said the card was for her father and Commander Hoo-Haw believed it. He once mentioned that he attends "court ordered" anger management classes. Lazlo seems to be his favorite scout.
His name and behavior suggests that he was once a marine. The insignia on arm reveals him to be a staff sergeant, but his title, Commander, is a rank in the Navy; the insignia on his chest is that of a three-star general, also known as a Lieutenant General. He drives a vehicle which sometimes resembles a Jeep and other times looks like a Humvee, license plate number "Hrumph", (an angry grunt or snort), decorated with flags bearing a single star, which is the insignia of a general.
- Hoo-ha's name means an "uproarious commotion".
- In Valentine's Day, He has muscles and it may be possible that his full name is Hoo-Ha Smiles.
- When ever he gets angry he rips his shirts/clothes he is a reference to "The Incredible Hulk".
