On January 15, prepare to see the world of PBS Kids’ Odd Squad like you have never seen before. The educational programming network will be premiering Odd Squad: The World Turned Odd, an hour-long film centering on agents Oona, Olympia, and Otis, who accidentally change the past and undo every odd case Odd Squad ever solved. The agents embark on a mission across time to set things right, using a variety of math skills and teamwork.
“We hear from families often about what an impact Odd Squad has had on them, and how much they enjoy watching it together,” said Lesli Rotenberg, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Children’s Media and Education, PBS. “With Odd Squad: World Turned Odd, we hope kids and parents continue to laugh and learn together as Agents Otis and Olympia use math and problem-solving to face their newest challenge.”
And the positive educational impact the show really shows as it reaches an average of 6.6 million viewers on-air, and averages 20 million streams digitally per month. The show focuses on math skills, including algebraic thinking, numbers, operations, and more.
Odd Squad fans will also be able to catch a sneak peek of PBS Kids’ newest upcoming series, Pinkalicious and Peterrific, following the Odd Squad: The World Turned Odd film. Pinkalicious and Peterrific will premiere on February 19.
Odd Squad is created by Tim McKeon (Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends, Adventure Time, The Electric Company) and Adam Peltzman (The Electric Company, The Backyardigans, Wallykazam!), and produced by Sinking Ship Entertainment and The Fred Rogers Company.
Odd Squad: World Turned Odd will air on PBS stations’ primary channels and on the PBS KIDS 24/7 channel (check local listings). It will also be available to stream for free starting January 15 on pbskids.org and the PBS KIDS Video App, which is accessible on a variety of mobile devices and platforms such as Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, Xbox One, and Chromecast.
