Oobi is an American children's television series. It has three seasons: a season of two-minute shorts and two later seasons of longer 13-minute episodes. It originally aired on Noggin. The shorts and a few of the long-form segments were also shown on Nickelodeon during the Nick Jr. block.

Plot

The show is based on a puppeteer training method in which they use their hands and some glass eyes instead of a full puppet. The main character is a curious hand puppet named Oobi, who is just starting to discover the world around him. All of the characters talk in simple sentences, using only two to three words at a time. Each episode ends with a montage of kids making and playing with their own Oobi-eyes puppets.
