Oddbods Halloween Special

My first grader discovered The Oddbods a couple of months ago and loves it. This exclusive series, created specifically for YouTube Kids viewers, features the characters young viewers know and love from the hit animated series. The show stars seven furry, colorful friends who live in the small town of Oddsville and like to get into all sorts of mischief.  Check out what they have up their sleeves for Halloween on YouTube Kids here, or, if you are not viewing on a phone or tablet, you can check it out here.  Let the kids watch this while they make Halloween crafts and enjoy some snacks!

 

Zombie Hotel Halloween Special

Pass the Fawlty Towers, turn right after the Addams Family’s house, and you’ll find the ZOMBIE HOTEL! Wide-eyed twins Fungus and Maggot will welcome you, along with their Mom and Dad Zombies, Rictus and Funerella, and a team of wacky employees who never run short of oddities.  But don’t worry, the twins and their human school pal Sam will come to the rescue whenever you’re served pig’s eye soup for lunch or if your room is next to a couple of loud vampires.  A different kind of resort, where there’s never a dull day! This is a Halloween special created especially for YouTube Kids. Check it out on YouTube Kids here, or if you are not viewing from a  phone or tablet you can view it here.  This is a new one for me, so I’ll be tuning in with my kiddo this weekend.

 

Happy Halloween viewing!

 

The YouTube Kids app is the first Google product built from the ground up with kids in mind. The app makes it easier for children to find videos on topics they want to explore and is available for free on Google Play and the App store. YouTube Kids continues to put parents in the driver’s seat with additional parental controls that allow parents to choose what is right for their family.
