Nick to launch new show - 'Gili Gili Gappa' on Holi

MUMBAI: Nick is readying for Holi with a special slime show of its own. Gili Gili Gappa, which is the Indian version of Slimetime Live, will premiere on 15 March at 4.30 pm and will air every Friday. The fast-paced show embodies Nick's characteristic features - noise, mess and slime.

The first international version of Nick's Guinness World Record breaking gameshow, Gili Gili Gappa is hosted by Nischint (aka Nishu) and Aaliyah. The duo tries to keep order while contributing to the chaos, Nick style.

In Gili Gili Gappa, two teams go head to head in each of the six unique games like Mooh Phat, Aas Paas Bandar Gili Gili Andar and SpongeBum Gili Chaddi. The finale round called Holi Hai has the two winners up against each other for the big challenge, vying for Nick's ultimate honour - a chance to sit under the "Gili Gili Ganga" machine for a complete sliming.

But they're not the only ones who get to participate and get a taste of Gili Gili. The eliminated contestants also get into the act equipped with water balloons, Gili Gili shooters and popcorn as they try to influence the outcome.

Gili Gili Gappa functions as links between the four shows on the two-hour NickToons block Trollz, Chalk Zone, The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron and SpongeBob SquarePants. Nick general manager Hema Govindan said, "It's the final touch to our ace NickToons block."
