"Pretend Catch!" is an episode of Oobi.

Characters

Plot

Oobi and Kako are outside in the backyard. They announce that they are playing pretend. Kako tells Oobi to "throw," and Oobi reaches for an imaginary ball. He pretends to throw it to Kako, who motions as if he is catching it. They play catch back and forth until Oobi notices the viewers and invites them to join in. He asks Kako to throw the imaginary ball toward the camera, as if he were playing with the viewers. They pretend to play catch with the off-screen viewers until they both try to catch at the same time and crash into each other. They get back up and dust themselves off. Impressed, Kako tells the viewers "Good throw." He and Oobi each give a thumbs-up as the episode ends.
