About the Partnership
Web3 media and entertainment firm, Doodles—created by Burnt Toast—announced today that it is acquiring transatlantic animation studio, Golden Wolf.
Since launching in October 2021, Doodles have grown into a franchise, including animation, gaming, merchandise, music, and live events.
On the other hand, Golden Wolf is a renowned animation studio known for its distinctive style. The company describes itself as “living in the space between irreverent humor, intensely dynamic action, and psychedelia.”
Following the acquisition, Golden Wolf will be helping Doodles expand its focus on longer-form original content development.
The OG NFT project took to Twitter to share the good tidings:
The deal is both boast-worthy and newsworthy. Golden Studio produces ancillary content for the Adult Swim animated series Rick & Morty alongside content for major companies such as Disney, Illumination, Nike, and Facebook.
Golden Wolf’s CEO and Founder, Ingi Erlingsson, will become Doodles’ Chief Content Officer. However, Erlingsson will continue to oversee and operate Golden Wolf’s offices in London and New York, managing other projects on the side.
Insights Into the Deal: The Importance of the Acquisition
