In the episode “Monumental Oddness,” which premiered in the U.S. on July 5 (following airing in Canada past yr), a villain is making an attempt to shrink all of the world’s well-known monuments and switch them into keychains. The youngster brokers of the Odd Squad, who use math to fix troubles and help save persons, are incredibly hot on his trail. While in Paris to rescue the Eiffel Tower, the agents come upon two ladies in white wedding day attire, planning for their ceremony. A single agent tells all people to very clear the area because of the villain.

They could—except that their officiant, flower woman, and musicians are not there nevertheless. The agents then swing into action, serving to the brides with their outfits, tossing flower petals as they wander down the aisle, actively playing the harp, and even officiating.
An crisis cellphone get in touch with through the ceremony provides the news that the villain has struck all over again, but the brides check with the agent officiating to complete marrying them to start with. “I now declare you married.

When it was a speedy scene, it is nevertheless wonderful to see queer couples woven into storylines that aren’t “about” remaining queer. Of course, we have to have ongoing queer people in kids’ displays as effectively (and this is slowly and gradually occurring), but we also have to have these kinds of relaxed encounters that basically replicate the planet we reside in nowadays (well, minus the monument-shrinking supervillains).
