Odd Pod


The Odd Pod YouTube channel features the toys, games, comics, cartoons, and fads that made the 1980s and ’90s so much fun.

Host Dan and his crew of colourful puppets look at the pop-culture franchises that informed kids growing up in the ’80s and ’90s. Revisit cartoons such as Freakazoid, Ghostbusters toys, television theme songs, and others that will instantly bring back memories — or, for those who weren’t there, may inspire a trip down a rabbit hole to discover more. Steeped in nostalgia, the channel is lighthearted, entertaining, curious, and informative.

Fans of Dan’s work can support his channel through Patreon.


Discover books, magazines, podcasts, and blogs that celebrate toy history, pop culture, and collecting.
