Odd Squad: The Movie
Premiere Date: August 1
In this feature-length Odd Squad event, a rival group of adults that calls itself Weird Team arrives with a gadget that fixes any odd problem. As a result, Odd Squad is run out of business and all the agents are forced to disband and go back to their lives as regular kids. Using math skills and teamwork, the kids discover Weird Team isn’t actually solving problems, but just covering them up. The Season 2 cast teams up with the Season 1 cast to stop Weird Team and save the world from destruction.
Odd Squad is targeted to kids ages 4-8 and their parents. The live-action series introduces simple math concepts and age-appropriate social skills like cooperation, communication and perseverance. In the fun and friendly program, government agents Olive and Otto use math to investigate strange occurrences in their town. Odd Squad cases include disappearing zeroes, Santa’s missing reindeer, runaway dinosaurs, and characters who escape from books.
