WildBrain CPLG and MetaPals, an AI digital companion platform, have signed a global partnership to bring Teletubbies to the digital era with the April 20 launch of Teletubbies AI digital companions. 

With WildBrain’s Teletubbies brand celebrating its 27th anniversary March 31, the collaboration marks the beginning of an array of IPs joining the MetaPals Multiverse in 2024. Using AI and blockchain technology, Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po will become personalized, evolving digital companions within the MetaPals browser extension game engine.  

The Teletubbies characters integrate with users’ daily browsing experiences accompanying users across the web, offering playful interactions and practical assistance. This technology not only brings these fun characters to life in new, interactive ways but also helps to foster a sense of companionship, as brand fans and kidults around the globe nurture their Teletubbies MetaPal online.
