Cartoon Network, a hot favourite with most children, has designed a new show exclusively for Doordarshan viewers titled Cartoon Network Duniya that starts on July 8.
The hour-long show will come on every Saturday at 10.30 p.m. and feature two of Turner's popular and original productions - M.A.D" (Music, Art and Dance show) and Codename: Kids Next Door.
"Doordarshan's extensive reach across India will enable kids in non-C&S (cable and satellite) homes to enjoy Turner's engaging original production, that has so far been limited to C&S homes," said Anshuman Misra, managing director of Turner International India.
"In the preliminary stage, the highly rated 'M.A.D' and popular animation series Codename: Kids Next Door will serve as the perfect introduction to new viewers. Later in the year, GalliGalli Sim Sim will further enhance this appeal by showcasing content that is both educational and entertaining in nature."
Galli Galli Sim Sim is the Indian version of the globally renowned pre-school series Sesame Street.
The show is aimed at serving 157 million children under the age of six in India and is also committed to supporting India's Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (Universal Access to Education).
