Congratulations to Odd Squad and PBS on their FOUR Daytime Emmy® Awards!

Attention Odd Squad fans, there is oddness in your town and Ms. O needs YOU to help solve it. Team up with brand new agents Orion and Oleanna in this live, interactive adventure. With help from Ms. O back at headquarters, kids will put their STEM skills to the test and decode, decipher and unravel clues to stop villains like Father Time and Lady Terrible. Featuring an original script by the creators of Odd Squad and new music including songs by Soundcheck, “Odd Squad: Live!” is a funny, action-packed experience not to be missed.

Odd Squad is an Emmy award winning series about a spy organization run by kids that investigates anything strange, weird and especially odd. Each episode follows kid agents as they track down villains, stop odd creatures and help people with odd conditions like The Jinx or The Sing-Alongs. Odd Squad is a little Men In Black for kids, mixed with Airplane and elements of Get Smart. Also embedded in each episode is a math lesson aimed at kids 4 to 8, leading to the expression: Odd is the problem, math is the solution.

ODD SQUAD: LIVE! is based on the PBS Kids series, Odd Squad, created by Tim McKeon & Adam Peltzman with original music by Paul Buckley. It is produced by The Fred Rogers Company and Sinking Ship Entertainment. Major funding for Odd Squad is provided by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting & the U.S. Department of Education.

ABOUT THE ODD SQUAD TV SERIES

Odd Squad is a government agency run by kids in suits equipped with the world’s most advanced and unpredictable gadgetry. Why kids and not adults, you ask? We told you that the squad was a little odd. Odd Squad agents are positioned in various locations throughout the world. The TV series stars two kid agents, Olive (‘whip-smart”) and Otto (“thinks out of the box”), stationed at Odd Squad Precinct #13579, which is located in a small town. Whenever something strange or unusual or just plain nuts happens, Olive and Otto’s job is to make things right again. Embedded in each case is a math concept that Olive and Otto explore; from time, mapping, and number operations to measurement, geometry and spatial sense, the solution for each episode finds Olive and Otto going to “The Mathroom.”
