Now, would you go "Left" or "Right"?
~ Hoggle

Hoggle is the deuteragonist of the 1986 film Labyrinth and the first ally Sarah meets. He is a kind of goblin dwarf. He was supposed to be working for The Goblin King Jareth, but he cares about Sarah more. Still he does what Jareth says because he's a coward.

Jareth forces Hoggle to give Sarah a peach that would make her forget about her baby half-brother Toby. In the end, Hoggle finally stands up to Jareth and proves his bravery by saving Sarah, Ludo and Sir Didymus from a giant mechanical goblin.

He is performed by Shari Weiser and voiced by Jim Henson's son Brian Henson.

A running gag throughout the movie is that no one, not even Jareth, can get Hoggle's name right.
