The dub first aired on Nickelodeon Arabia in 2009. It continued to air regularly until 2011, when the channel closed. It was one of three Nick Jr. shows in the network's lineup, along with Wonder Pets and Dora the Explorer.
Promos and commercials for the dub used a "cut-out craft" style. Before every episode, Nick Arabia played a quick pre-show opening where a hand pastes a cut-out photo of Oobi on a pad of construction paper.
The title cards are left in English, but the opening logo is localized to feature Oobi's Arabic name. The Arabic voice cast is added to the bottom of the ending credits, leaving the rest in English.
