-Voice-over legend Rob Paulsen (Animaniacs, Jimmy Neutron) paid a visit to our fun little corner of Los Angeles! Rob has done numerous voices for OddBot, Inc. projects. His golden throat has given life to both Mr. Flickner and Lester on "Lou & Lou: Safety Patrol!" and "Al" on the forthcoming Playhouse Disney short series "Can You Teach My Alligator Manners?"
-It was a privilege to show Rob our creative process, and he was kind enough to let us harrass him with a camera!
-Rob even signed Crystal's "Animaniacs" set!
Fanboys (and girls),

-OddBot, Inc. has wrapped production on another round of "Lou & Lou: Safety Patrol!"
-The new batch of ten shorts will air late this fall on Playhouse Disney, joining the ten episodes already receiving rave reviews from kids and parents alike.
-Speaking of rave reviews from parents... It has just shown up on OddBot's World-Wide-Web-O-Scope that "Lou & Lou: Safety Patrol!" has received one of THESE:
-For those of you without laser-assisted vision for pixellated fine print (like us), that's an official recommendation by the Parents' Choice Foundation! Click the seal of approval to see the quick write-up Safety Patrol was given.
-Also on the Parents' Choice Foundation list was "The Many Adventures of Mr. Mailman," one of the first shows OddBot produced for PBS Kids Sprout as a wee studio so many (few) months ago.
-Thanks, parents! Keep your laser-eyes peeled this fall!

With the ever-increasing hum of a pubescent cyborg, OddBot, Inc. is celebrating our first full year as a studio!
They say the first year is the biggest hurdle (and we never were too good at Track & Field), so naturally we are EXTREMELY grateful to all those who helped make this critical toddler-time such a success!
Here are some official highlights from our first "full season":
We adventured far and wide with "Mr. Mailman" as our guide (layer)...
Nyuk nyuk... (FlashjokeeventhoughitwasanimatedinAfterEffects).
We'll keep you updated with more exciting news of OddBot animation as it goes to air! We promise from the bottom of our chrome-plated hearts.
In the meantime, we're gonna go blow out our candle and eat some cupcakes...

-AWN (Animation World Network, duh!) has seen fit to chat with our very own Boss Bot, Christopher Hamilton!
-Chris gabs with the trade 'zine about short-format animation and its apparent rise in popularity of late...
-OddBot's work bookends the article, with Chris as the first production studio interviewed (as well as a top-of-page screen shot from Lou & Lou: Safety Patrol). One of the final points touched on in the article is the success of The Many Adventures of Mr. Mailman, whose most recent episodes were produced by OddBot, as well.
-Wow. You'd think we were totally awesome, or something!
-Check it out here:
Keep it Odd, folks... Por Vida.
-OddBot, Inc. played host to none other than Grace Rolek, star of Playhouse Disney's "Lou & Lou: Safety Patrol!"
-OddBot, Inc. is currently in production on the third round of these adorably fun animated shorts. Grace's voicings of "Louise" bring levity and enthusiasm to the role, and we at OddBot couldn't be more thrilled to be working with her!
-We started with a tour of the new studio digs, moved into some pizza, had a rousing round of patio badminton, and ended with a Dual-Screened lesson on Nintendogs!
-All in all, a fantastic visit from a favorite!
Grace (with safety cone) and the crew at OddBot, Inc. These smiles check out, Lou!
Odd as ever,

Ch-ch-check it out and stay odd,
