Pogo is all set to celebrate the 15-year milestone of its animated superhero Chhota Bheem with a month-long anniversary campaign.
As part of this campaign, the kids’ entertainment channel will bring the adventures of “Chhota Bheem” in various avatars for its fans across India with new Big Picture and series, movie premieres, digital initiatives as well as on-ground birthday celebrations.
Pogo will invite kids to witness Chhota Bheem’s triumph over Mahavinashi in a blockbuster telefeature, “Mahavinashi ka Badla” on Sunday, April 30 at 11.30 am.
Additionally, starting April 30 at 9.30 am, Pogo will invite fans to enjoy the premier of globally successful series “Mighty Little Bheem” as he travels through his city on epic adventures, often in search of ladoo, every Monday to Friday.
Throughout May, audiences will get to enjoy the might of their favourite superhero, starting with the movie premiere of “Yamlok Ki Khoj” on Monday, May 1 at 11.30 am and the brand-new Big Picture where Chhota Bheem faces another Big Villain, “Damyan ki Dehshat” beginning May 7 every Sunday at 11.30 am and thereafter every Sunday.
The channel's campaign, co-powered by Kellogs, Mother Dairy, Sunfeast Bounce Biscuit and Fresca, along with Associate sponsors Glucon D and Godrej Magic Handwash, will bring Pogo and Chhota Bheem where fans are. Along with Little Singham, Chhota Bheem will visit its fans at malls across Mumbai, Delhi, Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Pune, Hyderabad and Mangalore. Along with a big three-tier laddoo cake cutting, this campaign will include challenges, live performances, and games for parents and kids around Bheem's favourite food, 'Laddoos', with exciting prizes!
