Oddbods is a globally loved, three-time Emmy Award-nominated, non-dialogue comedy featuring seven adorable, highly unique pals. Together, despite their differences, they survive the perils of everyday life, unintentionally turning ordinary situations into unexpected, extraordinary, and always humorous events. The quirky, but totally charming, Oddbods celebrate individuality in a funny, warm and unexpected way. After all, there’s a little odd in everyone!
Targeting kids aged 6-9 years, Insectibles is a comedy adventure series which follows the adventures of Zak, Gramps, and three bio-mechanically enhanced insects as they search for the missing pieces of the ‘Shrinkinator’ – the crazy invention that shrunk Zak and Gramps before it exploded. They need to find the missing pieces and fix the Shrinkinator all while evading their enemies!
