Oobi is a Noggin show focusing on the life of a bare hand puppet, Oobi. Oobi has many misadventures with his best friend Kako and little sister Uma. Oobi learns basic math, letters, and helpful hints along the way. Oobi helps his friends play new games, figure out problems, and have fun! Oobi used to be a short-form series, the episodes about 1 minute long each, until creator Josh Selig turned the show into a full-length show. The show is still airing in re-runs at 2:00-3:00 AM every day.
