Netflix Picks Up ‘Oddballs’ Animated Comedy Series

Inspired by YouTube creator James Rallison’s popular online comic videos, the show will debut on the streamer later this year.

A new animated comedy series, Oddballs, from YouTube creator James Rallison, is coming to Netflix later this year. The show follows a bubble-shaped boy named James, whose observations on life fuel his comedic rants at everyday annoyances.

In the series, James often elevates his rants to laughably absurd heights. Along with his best friends Max (a talking crocodile) and Echo (a girl who claims to be from the future), James comes up with ridiculous schemes to question norms that frequently result in disaster.

The show draws inspiration from Rallison’s YouTube channel, The Odd 1s Out. Rallison and Ethan Banville serve as series creators and executive producers alongside Carl Faruolo and Michael Zoumas. Jennifer Twiner McCarron, Matthew Berkowitz, and Aaron Behl serve as executive producers for Atomic Cartoons. Sarah Soh is the supervising producer

Rallison and Faruolo lend their voices to the show along with Julian Gant, Kimberly Brooks, and Gary Anthony Williams.
