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 were available on YouTube from February 24, 2011 until April 7, 2014. However, several other sites currently feature the videos. For example, the series' Valentine's Day episode is available on a Secretary Day gift-promoting website.

Plot

Oobi, age 21, 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. Oobi often fools around rather than completing his assignments, causing him to get caught up in a lot of trouble with Boss in the series. In many episodes, a previous employee, Sue Worrellman, tries to destroy the work building or at least take control of it. Normally, after her attempts, she is thrown into the Oobi City Jail by Peter and Ol' Blue Eyes the policemen.

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.

Trivia

  • There are only three hand styles for the main character puppets, like in the original Oobi. The original series is not similar, though, when the fact of there are six main OAW characters is considered (there are four main Oobi characters).
  • The first episode was filmed in December 2010, though aired two and a half months later.
  • The character Ol' Blue Eyes does not appear much, though is classified main due to Peter Policeman being considered a major puppet (the two are often seen together).
