Octonauts: Above & Beyond is a Spin-Off of The Octonauts that released on Netflix in September of 2021.

Unlike its predecessor, Octonauts: Above & Beyond is focused on land creatures. It also adds Octo-Agents, whom are friends/family of the Octonauts who assist with missions.


  • Action Girl: Dashi takes on a brave, leader-type role in many of the missions.
  • Action Mom: Pearl, who is a brave, intelligent Octo-Agent as well as a mother.
  • Ascended Extra:
    • Some minor characters from the original series, such as Calico Jack, Pearl, Ryla, Ranger Marsh, and Professor Natquik, have been promoted to Octo-Agents.
    • Dashi has a much more major role in this series, going from one of the lesser supporting characters to such a major character that she almost outshines Captain Barnacles.
  • Canon Foreigner: Paani, a monkey from India who is one of the Octo-Agents, was introduced in this spinoff.

  • Episode Tagline: "Keep a steady paw" for "The Wild Windstorms".
  • Faint in Shock: Tunip does this in the cocoa episode, when he realizes there are no kelp cakes.
  • Furry Confusion: Polar bears are anthropomorphized, but panda bears are not.
  • No Full Name Given: Paani's surname is not known.
  • Out of Focus: Captain Barnacles and especially Kwazii have a much smaller presence in this series compared to the original.
  • Pandaing to the Audience: "The Bamboo Rescue" is about panda bears.
  • Playful Otter: Periwinkle, a Cheerful Child otter pup.
  • Plot-Relevant Age-Up: Periwinkle, who was a newborn pup in the original series, is now a child who attends Otter Scouts while Pearl works as an Octo-Agent.
  • P.O.V. Boy, Poster Girl: Gender-inverted: Captain Barnacles is featured heavily in marketing, but Dashi has the largest presence in the series.

  • Sleepwalking: "The Sleepwalking Dormice", which is about exactly what the title implies.
  • Vocal Evolution: In US prints, Pinto no longer has a Mexican accent.
  • Wrap-Up Song: "Octo-Report", a sort-of sequel to the original series' Creature Report.



Natquik is in Siberia, so it makes sense that his breath is visible.
