Odd Todd is a website owned and operated by Todd Rosenberg, who has created a series of humorous Flash cartoons depicting the world of unemployment, after becoming unemployed himself.[2]

Rosenberg's first cartoon, Laid Off: A Day in the Life, humorously deals with frustration, despair, and boredom of an unemployed man in his 30s, a situation shared by many in the Silicon Valley after the dot com crash. His cartoon character was picked up for development at Comedy Central for a half-hour television show but was shelved.[3]

His book, The Odd Todd Handbook was published in 2003 by Warner Books. Paramount Pictures purchased "Odd Todd" as a live-action movie in 2005.

Rosenberg has been working as a freelance animator. Odd Todd animation has been featured on ABC World News, National Geographic, America's Test Kitchen and Time.com.
