Dasdasi (Persian: دس دسی صداش می آد) was an adaptation of the Oobi series produced for IRIB TV2 in Iran. None of the original puppeteers or producers were involved in Dasdasi. According to an interview from 2013, the producers watched English episodes of Oobi before developing the concept and decided to create a version specifically for a Muslim audience.
The series ran from September 22 to December 20, 2012, with one episode premiering roughly every weekday for two months. Reruns continue to appear on the IRIB channel regularly. As of 2013, Dasdasi has been broadcast in seven territories. It has never been aired outside of Asia.
78 eight-minute episodes were produced.
Dasdasi features a cast of five main hand puppets: two children, a mother, a father, and a grandfather. A baby also makes several appearances. Some of the props used are identical to those on the American series. The set pieces are completely different. Unlike the original show, Dasdasi focuses on elements of Iranian culture. Each episode includes brief interlude segments starring a finger with googly eyes, which were not featured in Oobi.
