Roll with the Pangolins (Pangolin Tournament)
- Ran from: November 17-23, 2014
- In support of: United for Wildlife
The tournament was endorsed by Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, who is the president of United for Wildlife. United for Wildlife work to fight against illegal wildlife trade. The tournament was created to support the conservation of pangolins, the world's most endangered mammal.
An original short, "Meet the Pangolin" was created to promote the tournament. Two birds (not Angry Birds) watch a pangolin eating insects and ask what species it is. The birds mishear the pangolin's answer, thinking it is a penguin and then a mandolin. The pangolin breaks down its name (the syllables appear on screen, spelling "Pan-Go-Lin") and tells the birds to "deal with it". One of the birds says to the other "Doesn't look like a penguin to me".
Earth Hour Tournament
- Ran from: March 23-29, 2015
- In support of: Earth Hour, WWF
The tournament was promoted with a Piggy Tales-style short. A scientist pig builds a power generator in which a pig has to run on a wheel (like a hamster wheel) to power a light bulb. Another pig begins running on the wheel, and then a third, lighting up the bulb, much to the scientist pig's delight. The pigs generate too much power and cause a power surge which causes lights around the world to go out. The pigs are then left in darkness.
