Inspired by James Rallison’s oddly comic YouTube musings, the new animated series follows a bubble-shaped boy named James, whose life observations fuel rants that escalate to absurd heights; the show hits the streamer October 7.
Netflix has just announced a release date and shared a trailer for its upcoming off-beat (or possibly just “…odd”?) new 2D animated comedy series, Oddballs, inspired by YouTube creator James Rallison’s The Odd 1s Out. The show follows a bubble-shaped boy named James, whose observations on life fuel his comedic rants at everyday annoyances. The show hits the streamer October 7.
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.
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.
