So this is movement on one legg.
It's called "hinke" in norwegian.
But I can't find any English word that fits. Translating sites give limping and "bobble"
But those words are more associated "feeble and injured.
Limping would be translated as halte not hinke.

Try "gimpy". It can apply to hapless people that collide with inanimate objects like door frames. We don't really have a word or phrase for choosing to move on one leg…unless the odds are against you in a butt kicking contest.

We always called it "hopping"…

It's fun to be a bunny, be a bunny, be a bunny, and hop hop. Hop hop.
1. (of a person) move by jumping on one foot.

Wasn't this one of the races encountered in 'The Voyage of the Dawn Treader'? As for bunnies, The Velvetine Rabbit had a problem with his hind legs 'being made all in one piece'
