Both these feature length animation films have been produced by Chennai-based Pentamedia Graphics Ltd.

Monica Tata, Vice-president, Advertising Sales and Networks, India & South Asia for Turner International India, said, “Indian animation, which has aired on Cartoon Network, has always been a huge success and we are extremely happy to introduce two of the most well-known features, specially dubbed in Tamil, for our audience in the state. This is a natural extension of Cartoon Network’s overall localisation strategy for India.”

The future plan also includes series such as ‘Baby Looney Tunes’, ‘Robotboy’, ‘Franklin’, ‘Harry and His Bucket Full of Dinosaurs’, ‘Dragon Tales’, ‘Bob the Builder - Project Build It’, ‘Krypto The Super Dog’, ‘Richie Rich’, the all new Popeye show, popular action franchise block ‘Toonami’s, ‘Gransazers’ and ‘Transformers Cybertron’, ‘Dexter’s Laboratory’, etc would also be aired in Tamil on Cartoon Network.

‘The Legend of Buddha’, a classic 2D animation feature, is an inspirational story that details the journey of Prince Siddhartha of the Kingdom of Kapilavastu, who is prophesied to abandon his opulent life for one of asceticism and spirituality.
