CN and Pogo's new shows revel in Indian mythology and folk tales

#1
Quote::Turner International India, the broadcaster of kids' channels, Cartoon Network (CN) and Pogo, is all set to launch new programmes to entertain kids during the summer holidays.

Taking forward the theme of Indian animation, the network is rolling out a show titled Kumb Karan; and two movies, namely, Krish Trish and Baltiboy 1 and 2.

Kumb Karan is a home-grown Indian animation, which will air on Pogo on June 06, at 10:30 AM. The weekly show has been conceptualised and produced by Turner, and mounted by Cornerstone.


The 13-part series is a humour-laced tale of two twins and their adventures. Incidentally, the protagonist has been named after the legendary warrior, Karan in the Mahabharata.


Talking about the new shows and the appeal of Indian animation, Krishna Desai, director programming, South Asia, Turner International India, says, "Indian animation consists of content, whose storyline, characters or settings resonate with the Indian audience. One of our flagship properties, Chhota Bheem turned out to be a big hit with the audience. It encouraged us to further take forward the concept of 'Desi Toons', and create more intellectual properties (IP) for the network."

Desai terms Indian mythology as the "low-hanging fruit", which serves as a rich source of inspiration for crafting fresh stories and characters.

Krish Trish and Baltiboy 1 and 2 have been acquired by Turner International India from Children's Film Society of India. The movies have three 'sutradhars' (narrators), introducing kids to fables from regions such as Punjab and Maharashtra.

With the aim of reaching out to the maximum number of kids, the movies will be simulcast on CN and Pogo on June 06 at 11 AM. Later, the movies will be showcased on one of the two platforms.
