The Hobbit Film Series. Then Things You Should Know About This Humanoid Race.

1.- Hobbits originally appeared in the novel The Hobbit by author J. R. R. Tolkien. The main protagonist, Bilbo Baggins, is the titular hobbit.

2.- Thus, they are a fictional, diminutive, humanoid race who inhabit the lands of Middle-earth.

3.- Also, the novel The Lord of the Rings by Tolkien includes more hobbits. For example, Frodo Baggins, Samwise Gamgee, Peregrin Took and Meriadoc Brandybuck.

4.- In The Lord of the Rings, hobbits lived in the Shire and in Bree in the north west of Middle-earth, though by the end, some had moved out to the Tower Hills and to Gondor and Rohan.

5.- Hobbits are also briefly mentioned in The Silmarillion and Unfinished Tales.

6.- Hobbits are between two and four feet (0.61–1.22 m) tall, the average height being three feet six inches (1.07 m).

7.- They are usually very shy creatures, but are nevertheless capable of great valor. Hobbits are fond of a bucolic and simple life of farming, eating, and socializing.

8.- Their feet are covered with curly hair with leathery soles, and most hobbits hardly ever wear shoes.

9.- Hobbits are considered to “come of age” on their 33rd birthday. The race average life expectancy is 100 years, although Bilbo Baggins and the Old Took are known to have lived to the age of 130 or beyond.

10.- Some Hobbits live in underground homes with round doors and windows: “hobbit-holes” or Smials.They claim to have invented the art of smoking pipe-weed, and they had a distinct calendar.

“A round, jovial face; ears only slightly pointed and ‘elvish’; hair short and curling (brown). The feet from the ankles down, covered with brown hairy fur. Clothing: green velvet breeches; red or yellow waistcoat; brown or green jacket; gold (or brass) buttons; a dark green hood and cloak…” J. R. R. Tolkien.
