One in 20 children in the UK have a disability but major commercial channels such as Disney and Nickelodeon don’t feature any prominent disabled characters

Fireman Sam and How to Train Your Dragon feature the only disabled characters currently on long-running children’s television franchises.

To complete her mission, Hullabaloo’s going to need friends, cunning, intelligence, and — in the real world, at least — some money. That’s where Indiegogo comes in with a
