My name is Agent Olive. This is my partner, Agent Otto.
This is my lucky pencil.
But back to Otto and me.
We work for an organisation run by kids that investigates
anything strange, weird, and especially, odd.
Our job is to put things right again.
Come on, come on!
Who do we work for?
We work for Odd Squad.
I want you to tell me exactly how that...
THUNDER CRASHES, WIND HOWLS
-Well, I was following protocol as usual.
-No, no, no. She was...
-It was Agent Otto that wasn't paying attention!
We're going to go one at a time,
starting with Agent O-o-o...
-Begin at the beginning.
I was born on a stormy December night many, many moons ago.
-The beginning of the case.
Well, as you know, we went to investigate an odd robbery
at Mrs Mac's fruit stand.
I was doing all the work and Otto kept cracking jokes.
-Hey, Mrs Mac, what did one orange say to the other?
-Um, I don't...
Nothing because oranges can't talk!
Oh, that was a good one.
-Anyhow, you said the thief stole fruit but not all your fruit.
Thanks for getting us back on track, Olive.
-You are very good at your job.
So, I have all this beautiful fruit but it's so odd
because he or she or it only took the red apples.
Hold it right there!
-How many apples?
-It doesn't matter.
I want to know all the details. All of them!
Now, how many apples?
-Mrs Mac started with ten.
-Now I only have one, two, three.
Hm. So things went missing.
Sounds like a subtraction problem.
Partner, lend me a tablet?
Sorry, too busy dancing.
You started with ten, then some disappeared,
so now you're left with three. How many went missing?
-I hate it when the answer's in the middle.
If you started with ten and now you have three left,
then that means we can take away three from ten
to figure out how many went missing.
Ten minus one, two, three is seven.
Seven red apples stolen. Amazing.
Agent Olive, you are truly the best agent I have ever met.
-No, I mean it.
May I have your autograph?
Whoa, whoa, whoa! That's not what happened at all!
-So, there were more than seven apples stolen?
-No, there were seven.
She's just telling it totally wrong. First, my orange joke killed.
THEY LAUGH HYSTERICALLY
I can't catch my breath!
-When you got it, you got it.
That's how I remembered it.
But the only reason I brought up oranges
-is because some of those were stolen too.
-Oh, yeah. I forgot that part.
-How many oranges were missing?
-Mrs Mac started off with nine...
But now I only have four.
Partner, can you lend me a tablet?
Can't. Too busy being serious.
You started off with nine and now you have four.
Let's flip the last two numbers to subtract four from nine
to see how many went missing.
Nine minus four is one, two, three, four, five.
I have five missing oranges.
-Agent Otto, you are truly the best agent I have ever met.
No, I mean it. May I have your autograph?
Did either of you really sign autographs?
Well, not exactly an autograph...
I wouldn't say it was an autograph but she wanted one...
-Ms O, none of our gadgets are working! Aah!
And more of those lightning thingies are coming out of it.
Do your best to hold it off.
Now, where were we?
Should we really be standing around here
talking about apples and oranges?
Yes, that's exactly what we should be doing! What next?
We got a call about some odd activity at the soccer field.
Normally I would talk soccer with you because I'm such a big fan
but I'm a professional and I have job to do
so what seems to be the problem?
Excuse me but no. That's not how it went.
I can't believe I'm talking to Coach Roberts again!
Your soccer team is doing so good this year!
I've been watching all your games. I just made my own uniform!
Maybe I got a little carried away.
Not to worry.
I got Coach Roberts back on our side by telling another amazing joke.
THEY LAUGH HYSTERICALLY
That is the funniest thing I have ever heard in my entire life!
When you got it, partner, you got it!
Will one of you tell me one thing that actually did happen?
-Coach Roberts said his practice cones were missing.
-Well, he had ten and then he had zero.
-So, all ten were stolen?
-Well, Coach Roberts said...
Normally I set up the cones so my players can run drills.
Without them, they're lost. Look.
Coach, would you happen to have a picture of these practice cones?
Course. I always take a picture of my practice cones.
-A-ha! They're yellow.
-So, first red apples were stolen.
Then, orange oranges and now yellow cones. Take a look at that rainbow.
Red, orange, yellow.
The villain is stealing in the order of the colours of the rainbow,
which means they're going to steal something...green next!
What's the greenest thing in town?
-The town park!
Hold on. So, there just happened to be a rainbow in the sky?
We had to look up the colours of the rainbow in the library.
-But it just makes a better story that way.
Uggggh! Keep going.
We got to the park and saw Rainbow Robyn stealing all the trees in town.
So, I pulled out my return-onator...
And I pulled out my put-it-back-onator
-and we zapped the stuff and a vortex appeared.
-Out of nowhere.
-And that's pretty much the story.
-Yeah, that's it.
Hm... And is that how you remember it too?
Not at all. First, I never stole anything.
I paid for all that fruit!
-MRS MAC HUMS
I'm going to leave the money on the counter.
Oh! Oh, my apples and oranges, they're missing.
And they weren't paid for.
-Let's go, people. Hustle!
And I didn't want to bother Coach Roberts during practice
so I left a note saying I was borrowing his yellow cones.
My cones! They're missing!
And no one left a note!
Unless they did and a pigeon took it.
That would be ridiculous.
-OK, fine, but we still caught you stealing all those trees.
-Those were my trees!
I was planting them to make to park prettier
and I was using the cones to mark the spots to plant them,
and I brought to apples and oranges for the other volunteers.
I was being a good citizen until you two showed up.
Rainbow Robyn, stop right there!
Oh, hi, Odd Squad.
And then the vortex opened.
What's the update, Oscar?
The update is, the world's going to end unless we close this vortex.
-Just one moment.
-I'd really like to talk to you about...
How many trees got zapped?
Um, I started with ten but I'd already planted five.
So ten minus what equals five?
-When you're doing subtraction,
-you can switch the last two numbers to make it easier...
So we're looking at, what's ten minus five?
Easy. Ten minus five...
So, to sum up, Robyn had five trees, ten yellow cones,
seven apples and five oranges,
and, as it says here in our Odd Squad manual...
..when you zap those exact objects in that order, you get a vortex.
Which is what I suspected.
And now that I know what we're dealing with...
Oscar, use the un-tree-cone-apple-orange-onator.
Huh. Well, that worked.
Rainbow Robyn, on behalf of Odd Squad, I apologise.
-Totally our bad.
Olive, Otto, what lesson did you learn here today?
I guess sometimes I can be a little too serious.
And I guess sometimes I don't take things serious enough.
And I probably need to do a better job of listening to my partner.
Yeah, same goes for me.
The lesson is, don't zap those exact objects in that order!
Rainbow Robyn, is there any way we can make it up to you?
-So, good news.
-All of your trees are planted.
Bad news, we accidentally made another vortex.
