I am so excited to announce the release of “ODD SQUAD: CREATURE ENCOUNTERS” on DVD, the latest title from the multiple Emmy-winning live-action PBS KIDS series Odd Squad from The Fred Rogers Company. The new DVD, available just in time for Halloween, features five “odd” stories from the popular series, including a special extended adventure called “6:00 to 6:05.”
About the Show:
When it comes to dealing with bizarre situations and unusual creatures, the agents of the Odd Squad are always ready for the challenge. Fans can join agents Olive and Otto as they interrogate a mummy, a unicorn, and a robot that escaped from library books; work to find a powerful weapon capable of defeating the Hydraclops; and travel back in time to prevent dinosaurs from destroying headquarters. Using their wit, courage, and math and problem-solving skills, Olive and Otto work to save the day and set things right!
All four of my kids are HUGE Odd Squad fans. It is one of the only shows they ALL agree on. (I love it too!) The show is aimed at kids ages 5-8, and seeks to teach math skills in a fun and humorous way. We all love the quirky characters and crazy plots. The show is innovative, fresh, and in my opinion, one of the BEST shows on television for kids. I can’t say enough good things about Odd Squad.
While the kids are still enjoying the show after the cast shake-up at the beginning of Season 3, they miss Olive, Otto, and Oscar, and were SO thrilled to receive this DVD that features their faves.
They are also excited to be able to watch their favorite show on the go. This DVD has been in the car since we got it in the mail! Watch Odd Squad anytime by purchasing a copy of Odd Squad: Creature Encounters, or any of the other Odd Squad DVDs available for purchase.
“CREATURE ENCOUNTERS” is available now on Amazon and in stores. The DVD has a run time of approximately 75 minutes and an SRP of $12.99. This stories included within this new DVD are below.
