Taro is a minor character on Oobi.
Taro is one of Uma's classmates, as well as the best friend of Fred. He only appears in the "Uma Preschool!" episode. He is very artistic and likes to build bridges at the classroom's sand table. He even makes bridges out of graham crackers at snack time.
He was played by Tim Lagasse, who also played Oobi. Taro was one of the very few incidental characters that Lagasse was able to play. Most other episodes needed him to be on screen as Oobi at all times.
Taro is fair-skinned hand puppet with deep brown eyes. He has a spiky black wig. He doesn't wear any accessories.
