OddTube is a 20-episode digital series based on the TV show Odd Squad that aired every Thursday starting onNovember 10th, 2016, and ending on March 23rd, 2017. It is a parody of the popular video-sharing site YouTube.
The show has its own site on the Odd Squad website at pbskids.org/oddsquad/oddtube/ where you can participate in several activities based on the series.
OddTube is a series of two to three-minute videos that are hosted by Agent Olympia at her desk. She encourages interaction by telling viewers to vote on various topics or to send in ideas that might influence the course of future episodes.
Each episode begins with Olympia or other characters saying "OddTube will start now." followed by an intro in which Olympia is shaded in.
New characters were introduced through Oddtube as well, like Agent Olo, O'Baad, and Amanda.
OddTube episodes are likely to contain “Easter eggs,” or hidden clues that prompt fans to visit games related to the show--for instance, Olympia could offer a secret code to unlock a game on the website.
It is possible the episodes could also end up on PBS between episodes, siding along with interstitial such as "Odd Squad Needs You", "We Are Odd Squad", and Training Videos, among others. So far, however, this hasn't happened yet.
