She has served Odd Squad for a hundred years as of ‘Odd Squad: World Turned Odd.’ Until she passed a test in 1983, Oprah was once an agent. She then became the Big O at the end of Season 2 after working together with Olympia, Otis and Oona to stop Ohlm. She is constantly seen drinking juice from a juice box.
