Oobi is friendly and inquisitive. His good-natured and ever-curious demeanor is a personality that young children can easily relate to.

Oobi's favorite toy is his miniature red car, modeled after a Ford Mustang. As a hand, he is naturally talented at playing the piano and dreams of becoming a pianist when he grows up. He takes lessons from a traveling piano teacher named Inka. His closest friends are Kako, his neighbor and favorite playmate; Frieda, an older girl who is portrayed as a talking foot puppet; and Angus, his nerdy fellow piano student.
