“DANCE LIKE NOBODY’S WATCHING”
FEATURES SIX MUSICAL MATHEMATICAL STORIES
DVD Available from PBS Distribution March 15
Arlington, Va. – February 9, 2016 – PBS Distribution announced today it is releasing six stories from PBS KIDS’ ODD SQUAD series on the new DVD “DANCE LIKE NOBODY’S WATCHING” on March 15, 2016. Featuring math and music, the stories on this new DVD will have kids singing and dancing as they watch Odd Squad agents solve off-the-wall cases.
From listening to Delivery Doug sing about egg salad sandwiches to hearing Agent Olaf’s potato song, this DVD is filled with laugh-out-loud tunes. In the story “Dance Like Nobody’s Watching,” Agent O’Duffey forgets the code for the alarm system at headquarters. To turn it off, Olive, Otto, Oscar, and Ms. O must make their way through several booby traps by following the correct pattern. In order to beat the final trap, Otto dances his way between numerous flashing lasers while listening to his favorite band – Soundcheck. The band is also featured in the story “Soundcheck.” Utilizing the Mathroom at headquarters, the agents uncover that the band’s new hit song “Take Away Four” is causing four items related to its listeners to be subtracted – four tires, four bagels, four chairs. Because a musical problem needs a musical solution, Olive and Otto change the song’s lyrics to make things right!
“DANCE LIKE NOBODY’S WATCHING” will be available on DVD March 15, 2016. The DVD run time is approximately 90 minutes and its SRP is $12.99. A special feature included on this DVD is an extended version of the Soundcheck song “Take Away Four.”
