Oobi at Work (often shortened to "OAW") is a series of short films created as a tribute to the Noggin television series Oobi. The series was put into production during December 2010. The episodes are currently aired exclusively on DCPS, a public-access television network based in Duval County, Florida.


Oobi, a fun-loving, anthropomorphic hand puppet, is working for a business company. He is in love with the secretary and often takes her out on dates after the work day is done. Oobi almost never actually works. Instead, he goes on epic quests and adventures to satisfy the head of the company, Boss, and also dreams to one day marry Secretary. Although he loves his job, he often goofs off - and of course, Boss doesn't scold him; he joins in on the fun! Oobi's only enemy is former employee Sue Worrellman, who wishes to control Boss' company. However, she's kept from doing so by policemen Peter and Ol' Blue Eyes.

Boss Benge

Boss Benge plays as the tritagonist (and, occasionally, the antagonist) of the series. He is the head of the company. He is extremely fun-loving and enjoys working with his hired employees. Instead of being the normal mean and grouchy boss, Boss is the opposite and almost never makes anyone work.

He is revealed to have a deep, angry-sounding voice in season three and continues to have this voice for the rest of the series' run as his old portrayer, Megan Everette, decided she would only play as Secretary for the rest of the series, causing Peter to receive a new portrayer, Peterson Bianchi, whom he is named after. The character did not have a name until season three began. He is more serious than Ol' Blue Eyes and appears more than him. The character is shown multiple times chasing Sue (without any help from Ol' Blue Eyes) for no known reason during season three and four.
