Cologne-. WDR mediagroup (WDRmg) in Cologne has licensed Gigglebug Entertainment’s Finnish kids’ programme, Gigglebug, to Channel 5’s popular pre-school block Milkshake! Gigglebug.

The British broadcaster is betting on its international success and popularity in the online world and will stream the first five episodes of the series on Milkshake!’s first ever YouTube channel with two new episodes released every week.

“Gigglebug is just hilarious and we are so happy to be able to share it with the Milkshake! Audience,” said Sarah Muller, Head of Children’s Channel 5. “The Milkshake! YouTube channel should provide an ideal platform for the property as UK families can enjoy episodes of this unique series.”
