A Tubby-tastic 25th Anniversary Celebration

License to PR joined WildBrain to kick off a year-long 25th anniversary celebration for icons of British popular culture and the original disruptors of children’s television, the Teletubbies with this award-winning campaign in 2022. High reach PR activity spanned a Teletubbies audition on ITV’s Saturday night primetime TV show Britain’s Got Talent, costumer character visits to a celebrity family home and the offices of BuzzFeed and LadBible, beautifully packed anniversary hampers for influencer outreach and a 25 year fact sheet to generate national press.
