Horrid Henry Wiki

For her book series counterpart, see Mrs Oddbod.

Cynthia Oddbod (aka Miss Oddbod) is the headmistress of Ashton Primary School. Despite this title, she is somewhat kinder to Horrid Henry than Miss Battle-Axe. She admires Perfect Peter's behavior a lot and he is her favorite student along with the Best Boys.

She was the 'time capsule thief' who dug up time capsules from the school grounds at night in the episode Horrid Henry's Time Capsule. Horrid Henry almost always gets sent to her office every day, and she tells Henry in Horrid Henry Computer Whizz that her office is like his second home.

Emma Tate voices her.
