Oobi is a curious hand puppet. He loves to pretend and experiences the wonders of early childhood on a daily basis. He is always willing to teach his younger sister Uma something new, and can often be found playing with his best friend Kako.
Oobi has fair skin and hazel eyes. His fingernails are light pink.
Oobi appears in every episode of Oobi, with the exception of the "Bongo Drums!" short. He debuted in the "Dance!" short and was last seen in the "Superheroes!" episode.
