Top Ten Entertaining, Engaging, Educational Cartoon Shows in India


Which parents will not be happy if the kid shouts out the answers to the questions the cartoon characters ask in the show, or  if the show does wonders in your child’s colour or shape recognition?

Many shows in the Cartoon channels are engaging, but in different ways…While some are very entertaining like Tom and Jerry, Oggy and Cockroaches, Chota Bheem, Motu Patlu, Ben10, Doramon, some shows are truly smart, funny, educational, and can hold the attention.

Then, which are the good cartoon shows? ........ In my opinion - those which engage your child and teach him or her something positive, along the way. And, if you can join your child to watch, that's an added bonus.

This is the list of shows which I believe are not only Entertaining and Engaging, but also very Educational :  

1.    Umi Zoomi

This is a delightful series for preschoolers, which reinforces math skills like counting, measuring, and spatial relations. The show’s interactive format keeps kids engaged and excited about helping the characters solve the problems they encounter, and they will sharpen other skills like shape recognition and color identification along the way.

2.    Mister Maker

Mister Maker  is a preschool television series commissioned by  Michael Carrington at the BBC for CBeebies. The series launched in 2007 and also airs on BBC One and BBC Two.

Mister Maker does something interesting and that gives him an idea of what to make. He collects the required things from the Doodle drawers or an art and craft shop and makes it. Then he wakes up the shapes and they do a song and dance, followed by a randomly selected shape (circle, triangle, square or rectangle) to form a picture or to find how many (particular shape) are there. 

3.    Dora the Explorer

Dora the Explorer is an American educational animated TV series created by Chris Gifford, Valerie Walsh, and Eric Weiner. Dora the Explorer became a regular series in 2000. The show is carried on the Nickelodeon cable television network, including the associated Nick Jr. channel.

Galli Galli Sim Sim (Devanagariगली गली सिम सिम) is the Hindi language adaptation of the American children's television seriesSesame Street (famous for its Muppets), for India.

This classic educational series sometimes deals with strong emotions -- such as missing a friend, suffering from low self-esteem, and being worried about a new sibling's arrival -- but the messages for kids are always positive and self-affirming. The show's superb educational content supports early skills in literacy, math, and science and exposes kids to a variety of cultures through music, dance, and language.

About 157 million children in India are watching the show on Indian children's TV channels, Turner's Cartoon NetworkPOGO and Doordarshan.

Little Einsteins takes us on an adventure with four children: Leo, June, Annie and Quincy. Each of these four children have their own specialization, Leo loves to conduct, Annie loves to sing, Quincy loves to play instruments while June loves to dance.
