MUMBAI: The kids' channel Pogo is all set to premier a blend of fast and funny comedy shows as well as surreal Japanese game show Takeshi's Castle.

This weekly show will premier on 1 March at 7:30 pm from Monday to Thusrdy. Bollywood personality and anchor, Javed Jaffrey brings his own brand of wackiness and commentary style to the show by lending his voice to the Hindi dubbed version.

Turner International India Pvt. Ltd managing director Anshuman Misra as quoted in an official communique said,Takeshi's Castle is an over-the-top game show that will add another dimension to the unrivaled programming that Pogo offers. Our selection of the superbly talented Javed Jaffrey to dub for this challenging and fun show is in continuation with the Networks localisation strategy, wherein we work closely with celebrated Indian personalities across Cartoon Network and Pogo, in addition to other initiatives. Previously, Tom Alter, Gaurav Kapoor, Purab Kohli, Tarana Raja, amongst others, have lent their voices for shows on Cartoon Network and Pogo,

The world's funniest, and perhaps most difficult, games challenge 120 participants in each program. Games include scaling walls, dodging boulders and leaping across a booby-trapped pond. There's no script, just lots of laughs as contestants try to catch a football in knee-deep mud or pole-vault across a river.

The game challenges 100-150 participants in each programme members of General Lees team. The game includes the contestants also have to encounter Count Takeshi and his guards.

In this endeavor, the contestants also have to encounter Count Takeshi and his guards. These sentinels appear in different games throughout the series and guard the castle from General Lee and his volunteers. No surprise then, that after each round, the numbers of volunteers who make it to the next round is dramatically reduced.
