Deer Squad (Chinese: 无敌鹿战队; pinyin: Wúdí Lù Zhànduì) is a Chinese computer-animated children's television series produced by iQIYI in Beijing. The show started out as a series of shorts on China Central Television. The first episode of the full series premiered on iQIYI's video platform on 15 July 2020. The series is about four deer characters (Kai, Lola, Rammy, and Bobbi). The show made its premiere in the US on January 25, 2021.
The show was first announced on 1 August 2017, under the title Deer Run. Nickelodeon & ViacomCBS Networks International has overseas broadcasting rights to the show. A second season is currently in production.
According to Xiaoxuan Yang, vice president of iQIYI, Deer Squad ranked in the top five children's shows launched on the iQIYI service in 2020.
- Kai (voiced by Brody Allen in English) is the yellow deer who is the leader of the Deer Squad and the group's tech wizard. He has water powers and a hovercraft.
- Lola (voiced by Juliet Rusche in English) is the pink deer who has wood powers and a car that can fly.
- Rammy (voiced by Holden Thomas in English) is the big red deer who has sun powers and a race car that could convert into a robot horse which can leap high.
- Bobbi (voiced by Connor Elias Andrade in English) is the small green deer who has earth powers. He also has the ability to understand babbling animals and likes making desserts.
- Sir Steel (voiced by Doug Erholtz in English) is a conceited wealthy entrepreneur who comes up with various plans either for profit or to simply provide himself with convenience even if it means causing problems in the city or wilderness which he does not seem to mind or realize. Though not entirely bald (he has a small hook of hair at the very top), Sir Steel wears a wig which is seen coming off sometimes. He is also the main antagonist of the series.
- Professor Scratch (voiced by Julie Maddalena Kliewer in English) is Sir Steel's personal scientist.
- Muffin is Sir Steel's pet poodle. Sir Steel is quite protective of her.
- Ian (voiced by Mr. Lawrence in English) is a white duck who is a friend of the Deer Squad. He likes keeping the park in order, and would sometimes dispatch the Deer Squad with his tuba when he notices trouble. He also has ducklings to care for.
- Tina (voiced by Samantha Hahn in English) is a green turtle who is also a friend of the Deer Squad. She has three children.
- Fifi and Sasha (Both voiced by Andie Mechanic in English) are two swans.
- Ricardo (voiced by Jaiden Cannatelli in English) is a helium-voiced squirrel who likes to play pranks. He has an affinity for his tail which he named Ramona.
