Is It Any Good?

This is a fun add-on for viewers already sold on Odd Squad and its personnel, but if this is your kid's introduction to the franchise, know that their interest won't stop here. The all-kid cast (adults play a few supporting roles, but kids take center stage) is fantastic for young viewers, and the kind of catch-as-catch-can content suits the target audience's interest and attention span. This is great news, but it's likely to mean they will want to see the TV series next.

Even though these episodes run just over two minutes apiece, Odd Tube is no fluff show. It's engaging, humorous, and makes the most of opportunities to drop in some math know-how or illustrate a science concept. Every episode gives kids something to learn, from putting a ruler to good use to the difference between a planet and a moon. It's basic stuff that's delivered in an exciting way, guaranteeing that kids will learn something as they watch.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
