The Ninja Situation is the B-plot of the 20th episode of season 2 of Odd Squad.


Otis must go undercover to recover a stolen gadget from The Yum-Yum Twins.

Learning Goal

  • Numbers & Operations: partitioning & dividing




  • The gadget Otis has to recover has an unknown purpose, and is aptly named the MacGuffin-inator. This is a clever play on the word "MacGuffin", which is a type of trope referring to an object that serves merely as a trigger for the plot.
  • Olympia makes a reference to a Season 1 recurring motif, "If Sheila could see me now." This breaks the fourth wall when Oona explains that the show isn't "doing that anymore."
  • This is the only appearance of The Yum-Yum Twins.
