Villain Overview

~ Smek's catchphrase.

Smek, formerly known as Captain Smek, is the main antagonist of the Home franchise.

He is the villainous main protagonist of Almost Home, the main antagonist of DreamWorks' 30th full-length animated feature film Home (which is based on the 2007 children's book The True Meaning of Smekday by Adam Rex) and the TV series Home: Adventures with Tip & Oh.

He is the arrogant leader of an alien race called the Boov who are trying to find a place to hide from their enemy, the Gorg. Eventually, they settle on Earth, until one of them, a Boov named Oh, makes a mistake. Captain Smek sends an Alien Traffic Cop named Kyle to hunt down Oh for what he did. He was the one who stole the egg from the Gorg. He is also the archenemy of Tip Tucci, Oh, and Kyle.

In both the short and film, he was voiced by Steve Martin, who also voiced Hotep in The Prince of Egypt, Orin Scrivello in Little Shop of Horrors and Mr. Chairman in Looney Tunes: Back in Action. In the TV series, he is voiced by Nolan North.


Smek is cowardly and arrogant, qualities celebrated by the Boov, who are "the best at running away".



Not much is known about his life, other than having stolen a device of Gorg's he uses to shut people up, although the device is actually a Gorg egg.



Smek tells all of the Boov that they are going to invade earth as their new home. After Oh sends an invitation to all of the Boov (including the Gorg himself), Smek then tells all of the Boov to find Oh and tell him what his password is to stop sending the invitation to the Gorg he sends a Boov cop named Kyle to find Oh and tell him what his password was.

Oh's password

Later Smek goes to Paris and tells them if they found Oh, but one of them lies and gets Smek upset until Kyle tells him that Oh got away with Tip within getting his head hit by Smek's "Shusher", Smek tells Kyle if he got any idea what to do, Kyle suggests that they type in random buttons which doesn't work for only Oh knows it, Smek likes the idea (he likes any idea despite that they are aliens) and tells the Boov to get to work.

Many Mistakes

Later, they find Oh and Tip and Smek explains how dumb Oh by saying he makes many mistakes and thinks it is a game to Oh and thinks he will continue to make mistakes, after Tip turns the "gravity thingy" upside down Smek later escapes in Kyle's flying pod.

New Captain

I saw who did that! I hold grudges, you know!
~ Smek's last words before starts crying in the Floor.

After the Gorg attacks the Boov, Smek did not know about the super chip that the Gorg had and Smek was the only one who thinks he's the super Boov and anyone who holds the "Shusher" is the captain which is what Smek is Oh however mentions to all of the Boov about how a bad captain Smek is by doing the wrong thing about humans, Smek has finally had enough of Oh and before he can hit Oh with his "Shusher" Kyle forces him to let Oh be captain but Smek refuses and gets hit in the head by Kyle but tells the Boov Oh would not know what to do and thinking he would make more mistake but gets hit by Kyle again and gives the "Shusher" to Oh with Smek getting run over by the Boov and crying on the floor, near the end Smek redeems himself and becomes a DJ for the Boov and for Oh being captain.

Almost Home

In the short film Almost Home, Captain Smek appears when getting out of his spaceship and announcing to his Boov on arriving at their foster new planet.

Home: Adventures with Tip & Oh

In the TV series sequel to the 2015 film, Smek made his first TV appearance, this time he is more sinister, villainous, cunning, manipulative, and greedy than he was in the film. He gets revenge for Oh taking his role as captain.

In his first TV episode "Little Kisses", he steals every kitty litter in Chicago when Oh and Tip buy some for Pig in revenge for Oh taking his role as captain of the Boov.

In "Boov Up and Drive", after Tip fails her first Boov driving test, hosted by Kyle, Smek steals Slushious, leaving it up to Oh, Tip and Kyle to retrieve it back.

In "Best Frenemies", Smek pretends to be Oh's friend so he can find out his fears and weaknesses, but then he realizes what true friendship is about.


  • The name "Smek" is a Swedish word that means "caressing".
  • He is the fifth 3D computer-animated movie villain to be an alien, the first being King Goobot, the second being Gallaxhar, the third being General Grawl, and the fourth being Lena Thackleman. However, unlike all four of them, Smek isn't truly evil, and would do anything to protect the Boov from any certain threats.
