Thumb Wresting Federation Signs Up Bulldog in the UK

Animation Collective, an independent U.S. children’s entertainment business, has signed London-based Bulldog Licensing to represent Thumb Wrestling Federation: TWF in the UK . The live-action, short-format comedy series about a fictional sports league debuted on BBC One’s CBBC in September, and is also aired on BBC Two.  

Rob Corney, managing director of Bulldog Licensing says, “We believe Thumb Wrestling Federation: TWF is a fantastic opportunity for UK licensees as it suits a British sense of humor perfectly. The classic play pattern of thumb wrestling at the heart of the show makes it perfect for merchandise and the viewing figures bear out the fact that this is precisely the type of property we believe will succeed at UK retail.”
