Karthik lends his voice to title track of ‘Pokemon’

Cartoon Network has roped in South India’s leading playback singer Karthik to sing the title track of the hugely popular action packed show ‘Pokemon’ to be aired in Tamil and Telugu. Starting May 18, the show is being aired on Cartoon Network in four languages -- English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.

Monica Tata, Vice President-Advertising Sales and Networks, India and South Asia, Turner International India Pvt. Ltd, said, “As the leader in kids’ television, Cartoon Network looks to providing its audiences with the best programming and entertainment across its various initiatives. We are happy to partner with Karthik, the leading playback singer, for the Tamil and Telugu adaptation of the popular series ‘Pokemon’. Coupled with the popularity Karthik commands and the viewership that Cartoon Network generates, we are sure the title track created specially for kids in South India will appeal to them, making their favourite block ‘Toonami’ even more appealing.”

Thrilled with his first foray in the children’s television category, Karthik, who has sung more than 700 songs till date, said, “Children form a significant part of my fan-following, and singing the title track of one their most popular shows ‘Pokemon’ on Cartoon Network is my way of thanking them. I enjoyed working with Cartoon Network and singing the title track of ‘Pokemon’ in Tamil and Telugu. I am happy that kids in South India can enjoy their favourite show in their language and I am a part of this. I am excited about the track and hope kids like it too.”

The month of May will be a treat for children with the launch of two more shows by Cartoon Network in Tamil and Telugu. These include the ‘Dragon Ball Z’ series and ‘The Justirisers’, along with other classics like ‘Richie Rich’, the all-new ‘Popeye Show’, ‘Scooby’, ‘Akbar & Birbal’, ‘Tom and Jerry Tales’ and numerous ‘Tom and Jerry Movies’, among others.
