The only show I can watch with my kids

My two daughters (3 and 5) are crazy about the Oddbods. The humor of this show is surprisingly bright, and they make me laugh too.

What's the story?

ODDBODS is a CGI-animated series about seven colorful friends who live and play in Oddville. The cuddly gang, made up of pink Newt, yellow Bubbles, blue Pogo, green Zee, purple Jeff, red Fuse, and orange Slick have very distinct personalities. As a result, there's never a dull moment when they get together. From helping one another get fit, to hosting a crazy birthday dance party, they manage to trip through life while enjoying one odd moment at a time. 

Is it any good?

This fun series features sketches of colorful, unusual characters navigating ordinary situations in ways that lead to extraordinary results. But there is no end of creative attempts to problem-solve, even if their process is a little weird. 

There are some mischievous moments, most of which lead to mild disagreements and humorous semi-disastrous moments. Nonetheless, the Oddbods are determined to keep celebrating the odd in everyone. 

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about how TV characters communicate when they speak a different language or don't speak at all. How do facial expressions, body language, and their behaviors tell us what they're thinking? What are other things that you see or hear that help tell the story in Oddbods?

  • What makes each of the Oddbods odd? Is it how they look? Behave? Fix problems? Even though they're all different, what do they have in common? What does the show teach us about being different?
