Whistle while you clean!

Moe Yukky is the owner of Yukea on Main Street, a shop dedicated to furniture (hence its titular pun of Ikea). He loves things being pristine and pitch-perfect.

He keeps the shop clean and has to double up on a mopping routine which takes four hours and buckets of Potion Ocean water.[1] In fact, he has won several competitions based around cleaning.Character Encyclopedia

His best friend is Dewy (who owns the D.I.Y. Shop on Sludge Street), though with heavily overlapping specialties and opposing tendencies (Dewy being incredibly messy and clumsy); thus, they often bicker. Regardless, their friendship continues strongly.

Mukky Yukky
Moe's shop Yukea has only ever been dirty once - when Dewy, who works at the DIY Shop, lost control of his turbo jet-powered Jelly Bean sorter. The machine pulled Dewy into Moe's shop, where it exploded! Everything was smothered in ooey gooey Jelly Beans - Yukk![note 1]

Welcome to my store! Please be neat and wipe your feet!
Shopkeeper Moe Yukky is the brains behind Monstro City's number one home furnishings store, YUKEA. Step inside to find a bewildering array of wacky wallpapers, ROARsome rugs and uh more! But be sure to wipe your feet at the door - one footprint and he'll have you stacking shelves and sweeping floors 'til next Twistmas!
Clean And tidy!
Neat-freak Moe can't help cleaning dirty things. He once wiped every grain of sand on Bleurgh Beach with a damp cloth, just because he heard the 'seaweed'.
Flatpack king!
Moe holds the Golden Allen Key trophy for flatpack furniture assembly. He once built an entire fitted kitchen in under two hours, with no instructions and 38 missing screws!
Accompanying speech: "I've got a few screws loose!"
No Sweets!
Sweets and snacks are banned from YUKEA as Moe can't bear to see wrappers dropped on his spotless floor. If you visit with a sweetie in your mouth, don't let Moe see you chewing, or he might suck it out of your face with the vacuum cleaner he keeps behind the till!
You won't believe it, but Moe was a delicate shade of pink as a baby![note 2] His Mum dropped him into a gooberry crumble on his third birthday, staining him permanently purple!
Eye Pie Spy!
When Moe feels shy or scared, he has been known to hide in a bowl of Eye Pie. Can you spot him? Accompanying puzzle

  • Moe Pukka - family; lives in Jollywood
  • Dewy - BFF and main annoyance. They were rivals for Tamara Tesla's love and, for such good friends, completely contrast one another.
  • Roary Scrawl - another bestie, but their relationship isn't so elaborate. Scrawl has, in the past, asked Yukky to do cover stories a number of times.
  • Tamara Tesla - his former "love" interest, albeit the relationships are rather unclear as of the events of 2010 but they appear to be friends.


His name is intended to be an antithesis of his personality.

He is clad in an office green work jacket giving a sense of order and formality. His two protruding teeth are even and white, with an eternal smile lining his face. His relative Moe Pukka shares the snail-like head and slender body, showing that these characteristics are not exclusive to Moe and Moe only.


Date Area Event
April 16, 2008 Yukea Moshi Monsters starts, with Yukea starting shop along with it.
May 27, 2009 Daily Growl[1] Roary Scrawl lets Yukky write his first post on The Daily Growl (though this was mostly due to the fact that he was busy holidaying with girlfriend and significant other Tyra Fangs). He chooses to write about his clean habits above anything else, instead of writing about what he sells.
June 23, 2009 Daily Growl[2] Yukky announces the winners of the Built-a-Bot competition.
September 2, 2009 Daily Growl[3] Dewy's Daily Growl post that announces his soon-to-be public prank of Moe Yukky. He asks the audience what he should do, with the picked comment being to slop him.
September 8, 2009 Daily Growl[4] Dewy's slop prank succeeds, though the article that leaks such was written by Moe himself. He takes is like a sport, however. Yukky sustained a classic door-drop prank (as it is affectionally called), where a bucket of any respective substance falls off a door upon opening. The post is written in a limerick (though such is not mentioned), a form of poetry that is typically humorous, spanning five lines (although it is not formatted in a line-breaking sequence but, rather, in a block of text).[5]
February 2, 2010 Daily Growl[6] Fast forward to 2010 and Moe is having a love showdown with Dewy to win the heart of Tamara Tesla, which unexpectedly leads to a dance off. A lot about Moe himself is revealed, such as his talent of singing opera and being a world class singer. He mentions his ability to make Snail Souffle and Gloop Hotcakes with an Apricot Spinach Glaz; and, of course, his ability to clean the magnitude of Tesla's telescope collection. Dewy's was posted the day before[7], with Tamara's updated design being posted the day later on the third.[8]
July 1, 2010 Daily Growl[9] Tells us that Moe likes Moshlings because of the fact that they are his epitomic pets: they leave no mess and they're fun to collect. It is effectively there to advertise the Forum Moshling Mania board (Moe comments on how he's trying to catch all of them via the forum which, back then, was arguably the best source for Moshling combos). Since, the forum has been removed.[10]

  • Moe's Yukea salesroom floor is so clean and shiny it is said Monsters can eat food off it.[1]
  • He has big eyes so he can easily spot flecks of fluff.[citation needed]
  • His Character Encyclopedia bio actually has an error, stating that his shop, Yukea, has only ever been dirty once. However, there was an instance where Dewy pranked him, intent on giving him a feel of dirtiness (something Dewy loves and thinks Moe should bear for once) via slopping his shop and his head.[12][note 1]
  • Yukky, by May 27, 2009 (406 days from Yukea's debut in Moshi Monsters' first day of public showing), said that he has sold four million items, all of which he had polished and cleaned.[1]

  1. 1.0 1.1 It actually happened twice; There was an incident where Dewy "pranked" Moe because his clean freak tendencies were beginning to annoy him and hurled a can of Slop into his shop.
  2. Despite being born pink, his only properly-elaborated family member, Moe Pukka, is blue.
