Cartoon Network Celebrates 20 Years in India
Over the years, Cartoon Network has become every child’s one-stop destination for fun, laughter, adventure, best friends, superheroes, cartoons, entertainment and much more! This year, the iconic brand celebrates its 20th anniversary in India. Cartoon Network is pulling out all stops to showcase shows, movies and contests in a month-long stunt that will enthrall fans across generations.
The Happy Birthday Cartoon Network programming line-up not only includes current favourites such as Horrid Henry and Oggy and the Cockroaches but also reinvigorated versions of classic series such as The Flintstones, The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy and Courage the Cowardly Dog. Kids and adults can tune-in to all the excitement and wackiness starting 04 May, from Monday to Friday at 11 AM.
To make the celebrations even more rewarding, Cartoon Network is giving one lucky child and his/her family a chance to win an all-expense paid trip to the recently launched Cartoon Network Amazone waterpark in Thailand. All kids have to do is watch the Happy Birthday Cartoon Network block at 11 AM throughout May and answer the simple questions. Other exciting prizes such as tablets and PSPs will also be up for grabs.
Summer will become the coolest season for kids with Cartoon Network launching new content not only from its international portfolio but also from its stable of local Indian shows such as Roll No 21 and movies such as Mighty Raju: Superhero School, Sonic Boom Dhamaal Aur Dhoom, Sholay Adventures. Cartoon Network Originals’ global hit franchises Steven Universe and The Amazing World of Gumball are back with new episodes and the channel will be launching two brand new Cartoon Network Original series called Uncle Grandpa (in May) and Clarence (in June).
Speaking on the occasion, Siddharth Jain, Managing Director, South Asia, Turner International India Pvt. Ltd. said, “Since its inception in 1995, Cartoon Network has been the leading channel in the genre thanks to the adulation and loyalty of our fans across generations. We look forward to the future with innovative and engaging content forming our cornerstone to success.”
