At Home With Olaf is an animated short film series that premiered on Walt Disney Animation Studios' YouTube Channel on April 6, 2020, amidst the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The first six episodes were entirely animated by Hyrum Osmond; afterwards, episodes were animated by others, though Osmond is still credited as the creator and he animated the sixteenth and twentieth shorts. The last short, which was released almost two weeks after the initial finale, was animated by four people.


Josh Gad reprises his role as Olaf with most of the dialogue reduced to mumbles and giggles, though occasionally he will utter a few words. The only other characters to appear are the Snowgies, Bruni, Gale, a couple of dogs, some geese and some frogs while Anna is mentioned.

Trivia

  • During the COVID-19 pandemic, people were required to be in quarantine. This series was animated and voiced entirely from the homes of Osmond and Gad, respectively, to ensure their safety, under orders of California governor Gavin Newsom.
  • Hyrum Osmond was previously the supervising animator for Olaf in Frozen. He left Walt Disney Animation Studios in 2018. This series marks his first production for the company since his departure.
  • Except for "Ice", all the episodes of this show are considered Frozen canon. "Ice" is not because it is 2D, and does not fit with the standard animation style for the Frozen franchise, which is three-dimensional CGI.
