Nick is a minor character on Oobi.


Nick guest stars in the "Chopsticks!" episode, where he plays a major role. He also appears briefly in the opening theme for season two. He is a friendly Chinese-American hand puppet who works as a waiter at the local Chinese restaurant.

In the episode, he greets Oobi, Uma, and Grampu when they visit the restaurant for dinner. He shows them the decor, the menu, and a wall of photos from China. He explains that his family came to the United States from China. When Uma asks if Nick is Chinese, he clarifies that he is Chinese-American. When Uma has trouble eating with chopsticks, Nick teaches her how to use them.

Nick was played by James Godwin, who also played Maestru. Nick's bow tie is the same one used for Maestru.


Nick is a fair-skinned hand puppet with big, dark brown eyes. He has short black hair and wears a black bow tie around his wrist. Unlike most other characters, his eyes are worn on his pointer finger instead of the middle finger, giving him a taller appearance.
