Hipphipp! is a Swedish comedy sketch show that ran for three seasons on SVT - First in 2001, then in 2003, with a final one in 2011. It also spawned a live-show and a four-part Christmas special. A film about Morgan Pålsson and Robert Flycht had its premiere in late February 2008.

The show was created by and primarily stars the duo of Anders Jansson and Johan Wester. Many characters and concepts evolved from stage shows that the pair performed during the 1990s.
