– some stuff I want to write about…
My nephews are growing up fast and their naughtiness is reaching new heights with each passing day. At the age of 3 and 1/2 years, the only things that keep them from creating a ruckus in the house are scolding by their mother and Chota Bheem cartoons. Whenever they come home (their grandparents home), they are pampered a lot and they only way to make them sit in a place is by switching on the TV to PoGo channel and allow them to watch Chota Bheem. Being their mama, I accompany them while watching this cartoon and I will say, I have seen more episodes of this animation than I would like to admit. 😛
The more I watched, the more I began to put rational thinking into it and have come up with the some interesting findings:
Despite all this I must confess that I like this program. The characters are fearless and have morals and stuff which you rarely find in the real world. Green Gold, creator of this series, has done a good job of producing an Indian alternative to the Japanese cartoons that are aired on some channels. It does teach the kids about friendship, values and other character building matter that also entertains and keeps them occupied. It came in at the perfect time as the good cartoons that we grew up on are not even aired these days and Cartoon Network has been reduced to a pathetic state. I hope this gains more popularity and reaches magnitudes like the comics of Amar Chitra Katha and Chacha Chowdhary.
My nephews first birthday had a Pooh & Friends theme party and by the looks of it, I think their fifth birthday will have a theme of Chota Bheem & Friends.
