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.

Quite a fascinating show...
23 October 2004 | by yenca615See 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!!
