MUMBAI: Pogo has lined up a treat of hilarious programmes in its slot called Pogo Funny Side Up on Prime Pogo from 2 April.

The special line-up includes weekend side-splitters - Chuppa Rustam, new episodes of Takeshi’s Castle, Mr Bean, Just for Laughs Gags - and a slew of weekend movies.

The channel has also launched a 'Spot the Bug' contest wherein kids can win iPods and Pogo goodies every week.

"Pogo has always been at the forefront to ensure that kids have a good time, be it through exciting programming or innovative ground events. Pogo Funny Side Up will give kids the much needed wind-down after a month of examinations. What better way to greet the summer vacations than with a treat of humorous shows and movies that are sure to appeal to kids and their parents alike," says Turner International India Pvt. Ltd managing director Anshuman Misra.

To kick off Pogo’s repertoire of weekday bone-ticklers, the popular candid comedy series will catch India off guard in Chuppa Rustam. Be it out on the streets, in shops, offices, restaurants or even at the doorsteps of homes, the world falls unaware for the most hilarious pranks on Chuppa Rustam every weekday at 7 pm.

Plus, Pogo presents a lethal combination of the wackiest game show on earth with the funniest guys in India. Brand new episodes of Takeshi’s Castle, voiced by stand-up comedians - Ehsaan Qureshi, Naveen Prabhakar, Raju Srivastav and Sunil Pal – of the Great Indian Laughter Challenge fame will be aired on weekdays at 7:30 pm.

Mr. Bean - the man with a child-like nature - will be aired Mondays through Fridays at 8 pm.

Some clever jokes, a hidden camera and a few unsuspecting victims make Just for Laughs Gags, which will be back with all-new episodes, every weekday at 8:30 pm.

The laughter marathon continues into the weekend with a two hour special of Takeshi’s Castle Jaaved Jaffery – Mini Marathon back to back from 7 to 9 pm every Saturday and Sunday.

Among the movies that are lined up are Dr. Dolittle (2 April), Wallace & Gromit (9 April), Getting Even With Dad (16 April), Baby’s Day Out (23 April) and Home Alone (30 April). These movies will be aired every Sunday at 2 pm on Lights, Camera, Pogo! Funny Side Up.
