"Quiet Read!" is one of the Oobi shorts.

Plot

The short starts with Oobi quietly reading a book. The camera pans over to Uma, who starts playing loud electric guitar music on her boombox. As Uma dances along, Oobi asks her to play it quieter. She can't hear him over the loud music and keeps dancing. Oobi raises his voice over the music and gets Uma's attention. Sad that she won't get to finish her song, she turns off the boombox and dejectedly says that she will be quiet.

Oobi thinks of a compromise and takes out a pair of headphones. He gives them to Uma so she can listen to music while he reads. While she listens, Uma starts scatting along to the rhythm and making a ruckus. Realizing he won't get to read in peace, Oobi decides to join in and dance.
