Gigglebug unveils new animation Best & Bester at Cartoon Forum

Finnish animation IP studio Gigglebug Entertainment, the studio behind Nordic pre-school sensation Gigglebug, has unveiled Best & Bester, its latest animated production, at Cartoon Forum.

A digital-first concept, the TV series consists of 78 x 7 minute episodes and is paired with an interactive app which encourages users to compare their own favourite things and share it with their friends to determine the best thing ever, just like the characters.

Anttu Harlin, CEO and Producer at Gigglebug Entertainment said: “Our mission is to create positive entertainment which has an impact on shaping kids into balanced human beings. Best & Bester opens kids eyes to the endless possibilities that are available to them and celebrates the freedom of opinion through comedy that’s out of this world! Cartoon Forum is the perfect place to bring an original show like Best & Bester. It allows us the room to take greater risks and present something we’re passionate about that’s slightly outrageous and outside-the-box. We’re excited to see how the cartoon world embraces the unpredictable side of Best & Bester, and how kids get involved in comparing and debating their favourite things.” 

Best & Bester follows Gigglebug Entertainment’s hugely successful animation Gigglebug, the heartfelt and infectious Finnish TV series for pre-schoolers. A hit TV series currently broadcast on Channel 5’s Milkshake! and originally commissioned by YLE in Finland and SRF in Switzerland, Gigglebug also consists of three fun apps, three audio books, a music album and live events for the family. The apps have received more than 1,000,000 downloads, and topped the preschool app charts in 64 countries.
