BestMediaInfo Bureau | Delhi | July 2, 2012
A toothbrush moustache, cane stick and bowler hat when combined with impeccable comic timing can imply only one person in history – Charlie Chaplin. POGO is all set to reacquaint kids of Gen Y with the biggest comic hero of all time in an all new animated avatar in Chaplin & Co. starting July 7, 2012, every Saturday at 9am.
Chaplin & Co. is based on the hilarious escapades of Charlie Chaplin in an all new animated form. Daily life seen through the eyes of Charlie Chaplin could never be dull! Every little mundane event is transformed into side-splitting hilarity. Acute clumsiness and naivety are certainly not helpful when it comes contending with an irritable boss, persuading the neighbor that Chaplin’s house is not the local garbage dump, when trying to shake off a bunch of over-zealous cops and even going on a shopping expedition to the supermarket. However, our hero is ready to face whatever life has to throw at him. Against all odds, Chaplin overcomes the trials and tribulations of daily life with humor, dignity and the spirit of adventure.
Monica Tata, General Manager, Entertainment Networks, South Asia, Turner International India Pvt. Ltd. said, “Our aim at POGO is to strike the perfect balance between Indian and international shows that will enthrall kids and families. By launching a show based on the biggest comic icon in the world, Charlie Chaplin, we hope to entertain not only kids who never got to witness his brilliance but also adults who grew up admiring him. In addition, to remain relevant to today’s generation and broaden its appeal, the show has been made in colour and animation.”
