Nick unveils two animated shows 'Go Diego, Go!' & 'Perman'

MUMBAI: In line with its plans to ramp up the programming Nick has launched two shows - Go Diego, Go! and Perman in India. While Go, Diego, Go! is an international show from the Nickelodeon library, Perman is a Japanese acquisition.

Continuing its onslaught, the channel has introduced a spate of 13 new shows since the beginning of this year. Go, Diego, Go!, is a half-an-hour animated show for young kids, that will air at 10 am every Sunday while Perman, is aimed at the 4-14 year age-group and will air at 7 pm from Monday to Friday.

Talking about the shows Nick vice president and general manager Nina Jaipuria said, "The launch of these new shows in line with our programming strategy of not only bringing the shows that are 'entertaining' but also 'safe-for-kids-viewing'. Over the last 1 year, Nick has become the preferred destination for kids looking for 'masti' and 'comedy' and I am sure that both Perman as well as Go, Diego, Go! will further strengthen this association."

Go, Diego, Go! is a half-hour animated show, starring Diego Marquez, Dora the Explorer's cousin. Diego is an 8-year-old animal rescuer who loves nature and has the ability to talk to animals. An entertaining play-n-learn show, Go, Diego, Go helps kids understand and appreciate animal life in habitats other than their own. So, as Diego goes about locating and rescuing animals, he keeps talking about them - their names, physical attributes as well as their habitats, thus informing kids about animals and their unique life in a manner that makes this an exciting learning experience. Every animal on 'Go, Diego, Go!' is researched and its traits authenticated by a renowned science education consultant.

Perman, a classic animation series, is also a half-hour show created by the Japanese duo Fujiko Fujio (also responsible for Nick's programme Ninja Hattori). It tells the story of a gang of kids - two boys, a girl and monkey who are elected by a mysterious masked man (named Super Perman) to be the protectors of their city. The main protagonist is Mitsuo who is the leader of this gang. All the members of the group own a special 'Perman Kit' comprising a helmet with ear-caps giving them super strength, a magical cape that allows them to fly, an emblem button with a 'P' that they use as a communicator and their own robots that have the special ability to transform themselves into exact replicas of the kids at the press of a button. This classic animation show, a super hit in Japan, promises loads of masti and fun.
