Multi-platform video distribution company Future Today and global, award-winning CG studio One Animation are launching Oddbods & Friends, a free app for children ages 0-9, now available across OTT channels, including Roku, Apple TV and Amazon Fire TV, with potential expansion to other platforms.
Oddbods & Friends curates hours of animated content from across One Animation’s full portfolio together for the first time including:
- The twice Emmy Award-nominated Oddbods follows the adventures of seven different, quirky and very lovable friends who celebrate individuality and acceptance in a fun, warm and inclusive way. The series is broadcast in over 180 countries worldwide with major broadcasters and platforms, including Disney, Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, Netflix, and Amazon, and is recognized as a significant influencer in the digital space having amassed over 12BN views on YouTube.
- The all-new slapstick comedy series, Antiks, follows two sibling ants, Joey and Boo, who have an appetite for food, mischief and minuscule levels of mass-destruction. Launched earlier this year, the show has already amassed an impressive 500M views on YouTube to date.
- The comedy-adventure series, Insectibles, co-produced with ZDF, KIKA, and Discovery Kids Asia, is a #1 rated and multi-award-winning series with major broadcast partners around the world, including Discovery Latin America and the Middle East, Sony Pop U.K. and Italy, Canal+ and Teletoon France, and SVT Sweden, among others.
- The adventurous preschool series, Rob the Robot, is broadcast across 75 countries worldwide and is designed to engage, educate and entertain preschoolers, incorporating a developmentally appropriate curriculum based on the latest educational research.
“The Oddbods & Friends app offers entertaining, award-winning, fun, and educational content for kids ranging from preschool to age 9, and we are thrilled to partner with Future Today to deliver our very own branded content offering, digitally, to reach kids and families across the U.S. anytime,” commented Michele Schofield, SVP, Content Distribution at One Animation.
