Trivia

Reruns of the original shorts stopped airing in 2007 when Noggin ended its relationship with Sesame Workshop. Since the shorts were created when all of the channel's programs were co-productions of Nickelodeon and the Workshop, it is unknown which company has the broadcast rights for them. See more »

Crazy Credits

Every episode ends with the production logo for Josh Selig's Little Airplane studio. It features a scene from a musical sketch titled "I'm a Little Airplane" that Selig created for Sesame Street in 1994. See more »

Quite a fascinating show...
23 October 2004 | by (Pittsburgh, PA) – See all my reviews

We first stumbled onto Oobi right after the season started. Little did we know that our then 1 1/2 year old would fall in love with it. Needless to say the show is very cute and even holds the attention of my husband and I. We find ourselves laughing at the characters with the little things they do that are just hysterical. Who would have known that a "hand" could make someone laugh as hard as Oobi does. My son absolutely loves it. But not only does it serve as just a cute show, it also teaches kids basic principals of life. Overall I would definitely recommend this show to anyone with kids. (Or without for that matter) This show is definitely for keeps!!
