The series is debuting on AVOD Safe Streaming™ video service, Kidoodle.TV, this week, for an
exclusive first window.

Oddbods: Busy Bodies encourages children to get active and use their imaginations as they
participate in adventures with Hersha and the Oddbods characters to locations including space,
a winter wonderland, the park, or enjoying a rainy day at home. During each episode, Hersha
guides viewers through movement, stretching and breathing exercises while participating with
the Oddbods to achieve their goals.

Hersha Chellaram is a certified Integral Yoga instructor with expertise in bringing the complete
practice of yoga to adults and children of all ages and abilities, including those with special

Advocate, presented by the Hong Kong Adventist Hospital Foundation.

Michele Schofield, SVP, Content Distribution at One Animation, said: “During the pandemic,
children have experienced an emotionally challenging and turbulent time, during which they’ve
shown remarkable resilience and courage. At One Animation, we wanted to show up for kids
and deliver tools that would alleviate stress, promote mindfulness, and encourage them to get
active physically and with their imaginations, and so we put our efforts into creating Oddbods:
Busy Bodies – a series to offer kids a chance to release energy and have a few moments to
process their feelings. As an existing partner of Kidoodle.TV, we’ve seen the platform’s positive
uptake and tremendous growth, especially this past year, and we knew this trusted and kid-
focused platform would be the ideal place to premiere this hopeful new series.”

“The pandemic has challenged our children in multiple ways and the new Oddbods: Busy
Bodies show is a great example of not only addressing individuality, but also celebrating it. How
we get through this looks different for everybody but we can do it together. The mindful
techniques this series delivers are a powerful way to integrate a more meaningful and timely
form of kindness and understanding into the lives of kids and families. We couldn’t be happier
than to be the first to show this original series to millions of kids and families globally,” remarked
Brenda Bisner, CCO for Kidoodle.TV at A Parent Media Co. Inc.

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
