Common Sense Media has named Odd Squad: Odd Beginnings as a Common Sense Selection for Families. The hour-long special kicked off the series' third season, featuring the newly-formed Odd Squad Mobile Unit. The new unit is a "team of kid agents who form a mobile unit response team tasked with investigating any and all odd happenings. To do so, they use math and science skills like units and means of measurement or simple machines as well as teamwork and strong problem-solving skills." The article mentions the special's focus on team-building and teamwork, as well as the concept of using math and science in everyday applications.

Everyone at Fred Rogers Productions is devastated by the tragedy at Tree of Life synagogue in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood that Fred Rogers called home for many years. We offer our deepest condolences to those who lost loved ones and whose world has been upended.

The importance of community is even more evident at times of tragedy and though this terrible event took place in our home city of Pittsburgh, we know it also deeply affects our neighbors around the country and the world.


For more than two generations of Americans, The Fred Rogers Company has partnered with CPB and PBS to share what Fred Rogers called an “expression of care” for children and families through broadcast and digital media as well as neighborhood outreach. We stand firmly in support of continued federal funding for public media. In the nearly 50 years since Fred spoke on its behalf before the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Communication, public broadcasting has provided countless hours of free, evidence-based educational content to millions of children, exploring topics like science, literacy, math, and the core social and emotional subjects that foster kindness, friendship, curiosity, and enthusiasm for learning.
