"Soup!" is an episode of Oobi from season one. Like the rest of the season, it is a short that aired during commercial breaks.

Plot

Oobi, Uma, and Kako are in the kitchen, all huddled around a bowl of soup for Uma. Oobi and Kako sniff the air and think it smells delicious. The boys slide the bowl over to Uma, and they give her a taste of it from a ladle. She says that it's too hot. Kako blows on it to make it cool down. Uma tries another sip from the ladle, and now she says that it's too cold. After waiting a while, the soup is just the right temperature.

Trivia

  • In Canada, this short premiered on TVOntario on January 8, 2004. (source)
  • Uma's judgment that the soup is "too hot, too cold, and just right" is a reference to the classic fairy tale Goldilocks and the Three Bears.
  • Uma wears a bib in this short, marking the first time any of the hand puppets wears clothes or an accessory.
  • As with other shorts set in the kitchen, the lighting gives the characters and their surroundings an orange tint.
  • Two scenes from this short are featured in the original opening theme for season one: Uma with her bib and Kako blowing on the soup.
  • A video of the entire short has been found, but since it was taken from a low-quality recording of a Noggin tape being skipped through, it's shaky and has no audio. (It can be watched here)
