One Animation Grows Oddbods’ Footprint


One Animation has inked new deals to further extend Oddbods’ reach with a new season and longer format specials.

Turner Latin America and the Spanish free-TV channel TV3 Catalunya have acquired the third season of the series as well as the 22-minute Halloween special, “Oddbods: Party Monsters.” Netflix, meanwhile, has picked up Oddbods season two, which is slated to launch globally in January 2020.

Further, in Italy, the train operator TrenItalia is showing ten five-minute Oddbods episodes via its trains’ on-board screen monitors and mobile app.

Michele Schofield, One Animation’s senior VP of content distribution, said: “We’re thrilled to see Oddbods now in its third season and continuing to perform well with broadcast partners. We are still negotiating more exciting deals for Oddbods and look forward to announcing those soon. Meanwhile, our one-minute Oddbods shorts are always finding new audiences across OTT platforms and YouTube, having amassed over 12 billion views on YouTube alone!”
