UK, 2 December 2020 – Award-winning content creation, distribution and licensing studio One
Animation has secured a deal with renowned packaging manufacturer Keco Ltd for its three-
time Emmy Award® nominated animated preschool series Oddbods. The partnership will see
Keco Ltd create bespoke sustainable and responsibly sourced children’s meal boxes branded
with the globally loved Oddbods characters.
Launching this month, the premium takeaway meal boxes will be available at 7000 fish and chip
shops across the UK and will feature an Oddbods pop-out character for children to play with.
The boxes will also be plastic free and use FSC sustainably sourced paperboard.
Rob Spindley, SVP Commercial Development USA & EMEA, One Animation, said: “As we
continue to extend the global footprint of Oddbods, bringing sustainable and plastic free
products to the market is very important to us. We are very much looking forward to working
with the team at Keco Ltd to create an engaging and fun meal time experience in an
environmentally responsible way.”
Jamie Kearns Managing Director at Keco Ltd, added: “Keco is excited to be working with One
Animation to showcase the globally renowned series, Oddbods. Children throughout the UK &
Ireland will be able to engage with the characters as they invent their own storylines or
recreate scenes from this much-loved, Emmy Award-nominated animated series. These
takeaway branded meal boxes will perfectly capture Oddbods and children will enjoy
assembling and playing with their favourite characters, safe in the knowledge that all materials
used are both plastic free and sustainably sourced.”
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! Oddbods’ innovative app “Oddbods Oddlife”, designed with facial recognition
technology to help kids learn healthy habits, has recently been nominated for a Kidscreen
Award in the Best Game App – Original category.
