Storyline

From the writers and puppeteers of "Sesame Street" comes this series about wonder and imagination. It focuses on the stage in a young child's life when everything in his or her world is new and incredible - when each revelation helps build a sense of mastery and self-confidence. A bare hand puppet named Oobi is the star of the show. Each day, he learns more about the world around him. Joining him on his adventures are Uma, Kako and Grampu. Episodes are organized around simple themes such as animals, food, water, music, art, play and nature.

User Reviews

Oobi is the greatest kid's show ever!

When our family got the Noggin network, we discovered a show with talking hands, complete with eyes, that were as heartwarming as anything we had ever seen. Basically, this show is like crack for little kids it is so addictive. Oobi learns about the world around him with his grandfather, Grandpu, his little sister Uma, and his best friend Kako. They do much of everything regular families do, and they learn about different things in the process. My kids love this show so much. We constantly watch Oobi, which I don't really mind, because the characters aren't loud or obnoxious, and my kids learn a lot from them. Oobi is definitely a show worth letting your kids watch!
