Produced by Thiruvantharam based Toonz Animation Studios, The Adventures Of Tenali Raman will be available in both English and Hindi.



At a press conference held here today, Turner Entertainment Networks Asia senior vice -president and general manager Ian Diamond said: "Showcasing relevant Indian content is an integral part of Cartoon Network's localisation strategy for India.

As leaders in kids television entertainment in India, we are extremely excited that The Adventures Of Tenali Raman will have its world premiere on the Network."
