Mumbai: Discovery Kids is launching a new animated series ‘Bunty Billa aur Babban’ on 18 April at 1 pm and 7 pm from Monday to Friday. The slap-stick comedy series is produced by Toonz Media Group.
The show follows the contrasting duo Bunty (the parrot) and Billa (the cat) who live in the same house. While Billa’s ambitions rest in living an easy life, he is annoyed with the hysterics of Bunty who never stops troubling him. Bunty unleashes mayhem in the house, inciting chaos, and confusion everywhere. Babban, the donkey also joins the duo, escalating the fun conflicts and comic situations. The Bollywood-inspired voiceover enhances the entertainment quotient.
“We are on a journey of innovating our offerings and creating franchises out of characters that not only engage but also help expand our consumer footprint and provide a healthy dose of entertainment,” said Discovery Kids business head Uttam Pal Singh.
“Bunty Billa aur Babban - the slap-stick comedy is a fun addition to our existing differentiated IPs including stylish and action-packed superhero in town ‘Little Singham’ and best slice-of-life school comedy ‘Fukrey Boyzzz’. It will further cement Discovery Kids’ position as the most preferred brand in the kids’ category," he added.
“This is Toonz’s first collaboration with Discovery Kids and we are really happy to forge this association with ‘Bunty Billa aur Babban’, which is a show that has tremendous potential to turn into a hugely successful kids IP,” added Toonz Media Group CEO P Jayakumar.
“The show brings back the innocent charm of playfulness and hearty humour, with many beautiful moments to engage and enrapture the young audience," he added.
