I always wanted a Oobi creepypasta, so, Fandom users, please help me sort out what I came up with so I can make one, also, this won't be on this wiki, it will be on Geoshea's. This may not pass on this wiki.
I love Oobi, it is probably one of my favorite shows back in the day, in fact, I still like it to this day. However, one experience with the show... was unpleasant.
If you do not know, Oobi was a children's show for Nick Jr. and it's predecessor, Noggin. It stars a young, curious hand puppet named Oobi, who explores his neighbourhood and learning about his world, he is joined by Uma, Oobi's energetic sister, Kako, his friend, which Oobi's family treats like another family member, and Grampu, Oobi and Uma's parental guardian.
I was at my local Target, where I was browsing for a nostalgic gem, I found a copy of, "Blue's Clues: Shapes and Colors!", I bought it, not only was Blue's Clues also close and dear to my childhood, but it featured, "Dance!", the first episode of Oobi, back when it was just shorts that aired in between commercial. I checked out and happily drove home.
I put the DVD in, and watched the Blue's Clues episodes, but then came the main attraction, the Oobi short, I selected it in the Extras menu, and nothing happened. I waited for 15 seconds and nothing, so I just decided to cook a Ham and Cheese Hot Pocket, my favorite. It came on not so long after I entered the room again. To my surprise, it was actually, "Camp Out!", the very first full length episode, but I still liked that episode.
It was normal, up until one scene, in this scene Uma and Kako argue with Oobi over what to do, the former two want to tell ghost stories and the latter wants to roast marshmallows, the fight ends up getting so intense that they accidentally knock over their tent, before going with Oobi's idea. On this copy, Oobi decides to just go with Uma and Kako's idea.
The ghost stories were light hearted, such as a ghost that is a chicken, which Uma came up with, or a silly jumping ghost Kako made up, Oobi, on the other hand, tried to come up with a very scary ghost in a attempt to discourage the others from telling more ghost stories, he came up with a evil, gray ghost that has a body of old rags and is covered in chains, and only comes when people tell ghost stories, this scared the others into stop telling the stories.
Everything afterwards is normal, but when it ends and Oobi goes to sleep, the hands that cover the screen when a episode is over don't appear, instead, a faint shadow that looks like the ghost Oobi described slowly comes in, leers at Oobi, and lets out a faint chuckle, then the... thing... comes into camera, coils around Oobi, and suffocates him in his sleep, it does the same to Uma, Kako and Grampu, and then goes into a knot of a gnarly tree with their dead bodies, the last thing shown, was a beret, red hat, finger and acrylic eye fall out of the knot. it slowly fades out, and then the credits played.
It was a surreal, and without of doubt, creepy moment for this show, but I am still a die hard Oobi fan, even if that is somewhat a manchild trait.
There is nothing scary about this story, and it is lacking in content. On top of that it is unlikely that you will find a Nickelodeon/Nick Jr. DVD in the Dollar Tree as Viacom tends to try to get every penny they can out of their shows (with the exception of small things like coloring books).
The closest thing you're going to get to a Creepypasta about Oobi is 1999 which side-features a rip-off show called Booby. Not only is it one of the most popular and better written Lost Episode pastas, but most of the Booby episodes are creepy, which is something I would never think possible for a show about hands.
Also it kind of feels like misuse of the Writer's Workshop to get feedback on a story that isn't even going to be posted here.
List episodes and up being terrible and we all know they exist. No one's gonna put the effort into making these things and nobody will put them secretly in children's shows when these tend to have some adult content openly added into them from time to time.
As for this one, it is unoriginal and follows a really bad pattern. I don't see an adult going after a copy of their formerly favorite kids show's teaser. It's a waste of money.
Moreover if anyone where to see it, they would shrug it off as weird or them not remembering the episode properly. No shock or fear.
As for your comments on the lack of originality, why is this site still running and doing well for itself? because quality original content keeps popping up all the time
