‘Skatoony’ quiz show returns on Pogo from September 21

Pogo is launching a new season of the ‘Skatoony’ quiz show on September 21. The show would be aired on Sundays at 11:00 am. In line with Pogo’s endeavour to diversify its bouquet of original productions, ‘Skatoony’ is a quiz show which showcases children competing with cartoon characters for real prizes.

Fusing live-action with animation, the series was first produced in the UK and has been re-imagined for India by Miditech India Pvt Ltd. Each ‘Skatoony’ episode comprises four rapid fire rounds and the winner receives a Sony Playstation 3.

Sharing the show details, Krishna Desai, Director, Programming, Turner International India Pvt Ltd, said, “Original productions continue to be a cornerstone of our India strategy as we grow and expand our portfolio to offer the best in class home grown programming to our discerning viewers. Embodying Pogo’s key attributes – humour and play smarter – ‘Skatoony’ is undoubtedly the funniest quiz show on television.”

In every episode, three kids compete with three toon characters in a ‘cartoon world’, where besides these three kids, everyone and everything, including the host, the participant, and the audience, is animated. The questions asked in each round are a mix of knowledge, humour and relevant for kids. The show has two hosts – Chak Chakachak, the quizmaster, and Jimmy Kundu, his best friend and the entertainer.

Pogo, a multi-genre channel created for kids in India, launched successfully on January 1, 2004 and is distributed by Zee Turner Ltd. Catering to kids and their families, Pogo offers programming from studios such as Universal Studios, Warner Brothers, Entertainment Rights, BBC and HIT Entertainment Plc.
