The endearing adventures from iconic comic strip 'Motu Patlu' is being adapted into an animated TV series.

Computer animation and digital visual effects firm Maya Digital Studios Pvt Ltd has struck a deal with Lotpot Comics, which launched the comic strip 40 years ago.

"Motu Patlu is a pure Indian comic brand with a 42-year-old legacy. Its premise represents the cultural ethos of small town India and captures the life in the heartlands.

"At Maya we want to promote the best of Indian animated content and hence we approached Lotpot comics for the 3D animation of their characters," Ketan Mehta, Chairman and Managing Director of Maya Digital Studios, said.

Titled 'The Adventures of Motu Patlu', the series will show some experiences of the two friends who get caught in funny situations.

"Finding the perfect digital partner for Motu Patlu was a challenging task. That is the reason why it took us so long to digitise Lotpot comics. But now I am extremely excited and happy that Maya Digital Studios has taken over this challenging task," P K Bajaj, editor and publisher of Lotpot Comics, said.
