about-me

Odd Todd created the website oddtodd.com in 2001. It features a cartoon series called “Laid-Off” which was a viral smash hit during the dot-com bubble burst. Todd made over 50 cartoons and games starring his blue robed character which are listed here if you wanna watch em.

The popularity of this series eventually led to a Comedy Central webseries and a book The Odd Todd Handbook: Hard Times, Soft Couch (Warner Books). Odd Todd has received three Webby Award nominations.

Demand for “Odd Todd” style animation led to the launch of Odd Todd Studios in 2004 — the pioneer of the ‘explainer’ video style.

Odd Todd work has been featured on ABC World News, National Geographic, Good Morning America and Nightline. The studio has created original characters for segments on IFC, Time.com and America’s Test Kitchen.

Corporate clients include Hewlett-Packard, ServiceMaster, and American Express.

NPR’s Climate Connections website which included Todd’s animated series It’s All About Carbon was honored with a National Academy of Science Communication Award and a Odd Todd/Robert Krulwich animation won an EPpy award from Editor & Publisher for Best Use of Video in a Media-Affiliated Web Site. As well as a Webby Award.

Todd has been featured by The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Esquire Magazine, CNN and The Today Show. The studio is based in Santa Monica.
