Pogo is bringing a brand new weekly show for kids titled Andy Pirki, starting December 3. Children will be taken on a jolly adventure with Andy, the pink dinosaur, and his friend Pirki, a short, grown-up man with the heart of a child.
The silent slapstick comedy Andy Pirki has been created by Mangaluru-based AUM Animation Studios Pvt. Ltd., which celebrates friendship between the lead characters thrown in funny situations. Andy is an intelligent pink dino and the last of his species while the simple-minded Pirki is separated from the human world. Their unique circumstances led the duo to develop a special bond and become the best of friends.
Krishna Desai, Executive Director & Network Head, Kids, South Asia, Turner India, said, “Kids love light-hearted humour more than ever before – with Andy Pirki we bring forth a truly unique non-dialogue show with contemporary storytelling. This brand new home-grown weekly will air in prime time on Pogo. We hope that our audiences will not only enjoy but also relate to Andy Pirki’s lovable characters and the ever-attendant hilarious situations.’’
Andy Pirki will cap off a strong year of original productions for Pogo following the successful launch of Tik Tak Tail in September.
Shreekaanth Dass, Managing Director, AUM Animation Studios Pvt. Ltd., said, "The initial idea to produce Andy Pirki came to us in the inception year of AUM Animation Studios in 2009. Andy Pirki has already won multiple industry awards for best animation in India and international markets. We are excited to bring this fun-filled, action-packed entertainer series to the audience through Pogo. The characters have a lovable persona of their own that promises to take them on a fantasy quest.”
Andy Pirki is all set to tickle your funny bone every Sunday at 9.30 a.m. from December 3 onwards only on Pogo.
Andy Pirki has already won various national and international awards.
