Iconic Lotpot comic characters Motu and Patlu come to life in the first animated 3D series Motu Patlu. Produced by Maya Digital Studios in India, Nickelodeon is airing the ground-breaking series starting October 16th.
“Motu Patlu,” set in the city of Furfuri Nagariya, is about Motu and Patlu and their constant habit of falling into tricky situations. A highlight of the show is the title-song that brings together Gulzar and Sandesh Shandilya.
The show is the first India 3-D kids’ program filmed that is not mythological. Show composer Gulzar pointed out that Indian kids never had sufficient homegrown entertainment fodder in either print or audiovisual formats.
Added Anu Sikka, VP – Programming & Scheduling, Nickelodeon India, “Motu Patlu has great story telling, engaging characters and world class quality of animation – the three things that we look for in a show. Motu Patlu surpasses our expectations on all 3 parameters and we are sure that kids will love the show as much as we loved bringing it to them.”
In order to connect with the tech-savvy kids of today, Nickelodeon will invest in building digital assets for Motu Patlu. Kids can interact on the digital and mobile platform through numerous Motu Patlu games, contests, downloadables and a lot more on the dedicated microsite, www.motupatlu.in. Social media like Facebook and Twitter will also be used to keep the engagement going.
