‘Draw a Pirate Ship’ competition invites young fans to submit original drawings; winning pictures to be featured fan art on the YouTube Halloween special release.
One Animation is releasing its fourth seasonal Oddbods special, a pirate-themed adventure for Halloween, titled Oddbeard’s Curse (1 x 22’). The special will debut on YouTube Kids this October and has also sold to linear broadcasters TV3 Spain and Mediacorp Singapore.
The YouTube version will feature fan art from the winner of the ‘Oddbeard’s Curse: Draw A Pirate Ship’ competition, which will be running on Oddbods Official Facebook page in August in the lead up to the show’s premiere. Young fans are invited to participate by submitting an original drawing of a pirate ship to be in the running for this unique prize.
“One of our core values is giving back to young fans and we’re excited to be able to offer them this chance to get creative and have their artwork featured in this adventure-packed Oddbods Halloween special,” commented One Animation SVP content distribution, Michele Schofield. “We’re also grateful to our partners at YouTube Kids, TV3 Spain, and Mediacorp Singapore; we know this extra special episode of Oddbods will bring some spooky fun to kick off the Halloween season.”
In Oddbeard’s Curse, while out fishing, Fuse snags and hauls from the lake the catch of the decade: a treasure chest! In landing his colossal catch, however, he loses a tooth. Alas, he is saddened to discover the chest is full of useless pirate junk except for a shiny gold tooth - a perfect replacement for the one he has lost. The gold tooth belongs to none other than the Dread Pirate OddBeard and no pirate worth his sea-salt allows stolen treasures to be re-stolen. So OddBeard and his crew of hearty misfits rise from the depths and march on Oddsville to reclaim what is un-rightfully theirs!
Oddbods is an internationally popular 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.
