Odd Squad


2018 Best Children's or Youth Fiction Program or Series

Odd Squad is a live-action comedy about a high-tech organization run by kids that investigates anything strange, weird and especially odd. If there is a fire, you call the fire department. A crime, you call the police. But if you find yourself suddenly floating or attacked by spaghetti then that’s a job for Odd Squad. At the end of the first season agents Olive and Otto left to run their own Odd Squad Agency. Taking their place for the second season are new agents Olympia and Otis. Olympia is excitable and knows everything about Odd Squad while Otis is a serious agent of few words. And while Oscar, the resident Odd Squad Scientist has moved on to become President of all labs, new agent Oona brings her quirky flair as new head lab scientist.

Each episode follows lead agents Olympia and Otis as they track down villains, stop odd creatures and help townsfolk with odd problems like laughing uncontrollably or being covered in jam. Odd Squad has a fun, goofy and irreverent style that includes sight gags, one-liners, absurd situations and plenty of slapstick. Also, embedded in each Odd Squad story is a math concept aimed at kids in grades 1-2.
