“MOST AWFULLY BAD!!!”
Mr. Hoggle, Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door

Mr. Hoggle is a pig-like character who runs his Hot Dog Stand in Glitzville in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. He is famous for his Hot Dogs. Mr. Hoggle's name is a pun on "hog" and "haggle," meaning to argue over a price. According to Goombella, Mr. Hoggle has sold his hot dog for three decades.

History[edit]

When Mario arrives in Glitzville, he can visit Mr. Hoggle at his Hot Dog Stand to buy Hot Dogs for ten Coins each.

A little later, Mr. Hoggle imported a Yoshi Egg from a Southern Island to create a new menu item out of the egg, to be called the Southern Fried Egg Dog of Tastiness. However, Mr. Hoggle struggled with the egg as it was alive and bounced away from him. Noticing this, Mario intervened, and the egg jumped up to the roof of the Hot Dog Stand. Mario used a nearby Plane Panel to glide to the stand's roof and saved the egg. Mr. Hoggle allowed Mario to keep the egg, asserting that most people "don't like eating stuff that jumps all over the place".

If Mario speaks to Mr. Hoggle with a Yoshi that hatched from the aforementioned egg as his active partner for the first time, Mr. Hoggle will remark that the Yoshi used to be the egg he failed to catch.

Tattle[edit]

Goombella can use Tattle on Mr. Hoggle only while he is outside his Hot Dog Stand but before Mario interacts with the Yoshi Egg.

  • "That's Mr. Hoggle from the Hot Dog Stand. He's sold dogs for like, 30 years! Nobody's as hot for Hot Dogs as him. He's always looking for the next miracle Hot Dog! Anyway, his dogs are famous. Nobody comes to visit here without having one."
