-for the next Odd Squad Episodes??!?!?!?!?!?!?
If you haven't checked Wikipedia for the next episodes, the these are the ones that are scheduled to be released:
And these episodes are going to be AMAZING!!!!!
Why you ask?
BECAUSE WE'RE FINALLY GOING TO FIND OUT WHO AGENT FLUFFIN' OTIS IS AND THIS IS EVEN A BIGGER MYSTERY THAN WHO IS AGENT OLIVE'S PARTNER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And now, get ready for a giant rant about my opinion on this matter:
Ok, FIRST OFF, I'm just going to say, that part of this still puzzles me, and I'll explain why later.
Now, secondly, I'm going to talk about the popular theory that's been going around.... that Otis was a dog. If you haven't heard of this theory before, or you're not a fan of Odd Squad and are reading this for some reason, than you may be thinking, "Wait, what?". Yeah, let me explain. In the episode Training Day, a dog agent made a short appearance in a flashback, and was addressed as "Agent Otis". Because we haven't seen Agent Otis (the dog) since that episode, some people started to believe that they're the same agent.
And now I'm going to prove that theory wrong. Yep! Sorry whoever came up with this theory, I'm going to rip it apart. So in one of the more recent episodes, Other Olympia, I feel like the creators were saying that "two people can have the same name! The dog thing was a mistake!". Also, way back in the first episode that Otis was introduced, he says that he doesn't know who Agent Olive is, when he's clearly seen her because in the only clip we've seen of Dog Otis, Olive is there to. ALSO, dog or not, he still would have had to go to the academy, which Ms. O clearly states that Otis never went to the academy. Not to mention, in the episode where everyone turns into puppies, Otis is a completely different breed of dog that the other Otis.
Now that that's out of the way, let me tell you who I think Agent Otis is! I think he is a villain! Or, used to be a villain. Let's look at the way he acts in "Mid-Day in the Garden of Good and Odd". If you don't remember, in this episode Otis and Olympia team up with Gardener Todd, the former villain, Odd Todd. Throughout the episode, Olympia keeps stating that you shouldn't trust a former villain, and "Once a villain, always a villain", with Otis continually telling her that "villains can change". Later in the episode, Todd claims that he recognizes Otis, and Otis just answers by saying "I just have one of those faces" (I also want to point out that none of the other villains recognize him for some reason). In the episode "The Ninja Situation", Ms. O asks Otis to go undercover as "The Evil Ninja", in which Otis replies saying "I don't really feel comfortable pretending to be a villain... because of the thing we talked about". He's the oddest character in the show, but he's constantly saying things like:
And when Olympia asks him if he has any special talents, he says "None worth mentioning", when it has been shown MULTIPLE TIMES that he had LOTS of talent! For someone trying to not be odd, he is VERY ODD. Another strange thing, there is no evidence of him having a life outside Odd Squad. Or at least a NORMAL life!
He tells Olympia that he's said more words to her than anyone else in his life...
When Odd Squad shuts down in the movie, instead of relaxing at home or playing on a playground like all the other agents do, he goes out and finds a JOB...
He never mentions having any friends outside of work...
So let's say Otis used to be a villain. Ok! He's obviously turned his life around, and just wants to forget about being a villain! It's not like he's being forced to work for Odd Squad... right?
While I was doing research for this theory, I came across this photo...:
It all seems normal... except for most of the information is private. Besides that everything else is normal... or is it? When it comes to his status, just like the rest of the active agents, it says active, but next to it in abbreviations, is says "Stipulation OS.V.1.". When I read this, I. WAS. SHOCKED. Because they would have a word like Stipulation in a show for five-to-eight-year-olds! I'm kidding! Just kidding! But seriously I did think it was slightly unusual because I didn't know what that word meant and I had to look it up. No joke. And I actually WAS surprised when I looked it up. If you were like me, and didn't know the definition, than it means this:
That means that Otis most likely had a deal with Odd Squad for... something. Honestly, I'm still puzzled about this theory. I'm not like the other theorists that are super confident in their theories, and can use all this information to make a conclusion. I can solve about 3/4ths of a theory, but I'm not good at finishing the theory, so, if you have any ideas, than feel free to comment them down below!
Another thing worth mentioning is that in the episode "Xs and Os", the Xs say, "There's been a lot of suspicious activity around here." "Villain break-ins, missing gadgets... You wouldn't know anything about that, would you Otis?". Otis replies "Nope!". The Xs will still be staying at Odd Squad until they figure out what's going on, AND they were sent by the Big O himself. This means that if Ms. O and Otis DID work out some sort of deal, than the rest of Odd Squad doesn't know about it...
Wow, I can't believe a PBSKids show has a mystery as big as THIS! Man, this show is underrated. #watchthisshow
But that's all I have to say for now! This is DragonStar117 signing off! See you in the future!
