Oobi is a show about wonder. It speaks to the stage in a young child's life when everything is new and incredible: building a block tower, making cookies. It's a show about the everyday revelations. Oobi lives in a single-story house with his younger sister, Uma, and his grandfather, Grampu. Oobi's best friend, Kako, lives across the street and often comes over to visit Oobi. Most episodes center around Oobi learning more about a simple concept like a new sport, a new place, or a holiday. Uma and Kako are the comic relief, and they often misunderstand Oobi's discoveries or provide commentary on the episode's topic. The show is meant to mirror the stage of early childhood "when everything in [the] world is new and incredible" and "when each revelation helps build a sense of mastery and self-confidence."
