About the shorts

Oobi has three seasons, but only the last two were made up of regular long-form episodes. The first-ever season was a series of two-minute interstitial shorts that premiered in 2000. These were played during commercial breaks on Noggin and Nickelodeon.

The shorts' look and feel is noticeably different from the long-form episodes. The shorts have simpler stories, less dialogue, and smaller, more realistic sets than the main show. The puppet designs were also bare-bones: aside from their glass eyes, none of the puppets had any accessories.

48 different shorts are known. Since most of them haven't had an official release, it is hard to find them in good quality online. Many of them haven't been found in full, and some are missing entirely. Read about the shorts below or use the navbox!
