YMMV / Oobi

Go To

  • Creator's Pet: Uma seems to have gotten this treatment throughout the second season with her as the star of many episodes and leaving Oobi Out of Focus.
  • Dream Team: The supporting cast features some of the best-known puppeteers in the business. Most of them have played an iconic Muppet character at some point. Kevin Clash (Randy on Oobi) used to play Elmo; Matt Vogel (Angus) is the current performer of Kermit the Frog and Count von Count; and Jennifer Barnhart (Mrs. Johnson) plays Zoe.
    • In the main cast, Stephanie D'Abruzzo (Uma and Inka) was Kate Monster and Lucy the Slut on Avenue Q and Noel MacNeal (Kako) was the title character in Bear in the Big Blue House.
  • Ear Worm: The theme song.
  • Signature Scene: The scene in, "Showtime!" where Oobi and Kako's mouths are glued together, famously compared to an orgy on The Soup.

  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks!: Surprisingly, this wasn't the case with the show's transition from shorts to full episodes. Most parents agree that the show only improved by extending the plotlines and adding more Muppeteers to the cast.
  • "Weird Al" Effect: Oobi hasn't aired in Turkey for years, but the aforementioned Durex commercial that featured Oobi was very popular with Turkish viewers in 2014, overshadowing the show.
