Gigglebug App Gets New Animated TV Series


Gigglebug-post

Anima Boutique/Gigglebug Entertainment is currently riding high on momentum built by their new iPad app, which invites kids to create grumpy animals by tickling them through the touchscreen. The app found its way to the top of the Free to Play Kids Apps in Finland and China within 2 weeks of release, and now they have decided to spin it off into its own TV series.

The Gigglebugs TV series will start airing in Finland on June 15th via a 10 x 5 minute format centering on the lead Gigglebug character, who tries his best to cheer up his friends. The series will be presented at the Annecy market this week, and will continue to seek financing for a bigger project at MIPCOM later this year.

We are in advanced negotiations with broadcasters from Germany, Denmark and Finland with additional interest from broadcasters in UK, Spain, Argentina, Croatia, Sweden and Norway,” notes Harlin. “We will shortly partner with a top international sales agent to handle distribution the show.”
