Hungama TV ramps up activity with new shows & contest















MUMBAI: The Disney owned kids channel in India, Hungama TV has geared up for the vacation promising to bring fun, laughter and adventure to kids and aggressively ramp up action on the channel.


The ‘Ha Ha Ha Hungama‘ block will see the launch of four shows including new animated series - Shuriken School, Being Ian, Kiteretsu and Tensai Bakabon. New episodes of Shin-Chan, Telematch, Kochikame and Doraemon will also be added to the line-up of fresh programming.


Even the action adventure live action show Hero will kick off a new season on 7 May and for the young movie-buffs, Hungama TV will have a special matinee time, informs an official release.


The channel will also kick off a contest titled ‘Pajama Pakdo‘ on 30 April. Kids are being invited to help police the channel and spot the wicked pyjamas that have escaped the high security central laundry. Kids need to catch as many pyjamas to win prizes.








Hungama TV head of programming and production Aparna Bhosle said, "Every summer, there is a considerable increase in eyeballs on kids‘ channels. Hungama TV‘s summer programming ups the ante on comedy and local programming to keep our young fans entertained at home.


In line with all its plans the broadcaster is also launching an anthem for the channel. "We are very excited about launching our Hungama theme song that captures the spirit of our audiences. We are hopeful that kids will sing along and dance to this theme through this season," she added. The lyrics for the song have been penned by Abbas Tyrewalla and the music has been done by Vishal - Shekhar.


Tensai Bakabon is the story of a gifted child, hence his nickname "Tensai" (genius), but as he gets older, he deteriorated to his father‘s level - quite a drop. His younger brother Hajime however turns out to be the brightest bulb on this family tree.


In Kiteretsu the main character is a scientific genius boy named Kiteretsu, who has built a companion robot named Korosuke. He frequently travels in time with his friends and Korosuke in the time machine built by him.


Being Ian narrates the story of Ian Kelley is a 12-year-old with the kind of imagination that goes "cut" in the night. In other words, he thinks life is a stage and he‘s the director causing him to get himself into strange predicaments. But somehow he manages to walk away from each "set" with a sense of accomplishment, or a detention!


The story of Shuriken School revolves around a school where kids get to learn how to be an astronaut, sorcerer, rock star or a ninja. During their training they learn to fly over rooftops, melt into walls and disappear into a cloud of smoke.
