Cornershop animates Pogo's latest desi toon
Following hot on the heels of Chhota Bheem's phenomenal ratings success, Turner's kids' entertainment channel POGO today announced its next breakthrough 'Desi Toon' (Indian animation), a hilarious new adventure series about mismatched twins entitled 'Kumbh Karan'. Set to premiere on POGO on Sunday, June 6 at 10:00 a.m., Kumbh Karan is the brainchild of Turner's original production team with the animation produced by Mumbai-based Cornershop Animation Co.
Kumbh Karan features the hilarious escapades of identical twins Kumbh and Karan, who despite being identical are in fact the exact opposite of each other. Kumbh, named after the demonic giant from Ramayan loves to sleep and eat! Karan shares Kumbh's eyes and big ears and the similarity ends there! He is named after the skilled warrior Karana from Mahabharata. The two live in a fictional town called Ajab Gajabpur and are the darlings of the village.
This animation comes as another feather in Cornershop's cap which has some successful campaigns to its credit.
