In a decade, ‘Motu Patlu’, India’s beloved kids entertainment show, has won many hearts and brought smiles to many children’s faces.
Inspired by the famous characters in Lotpot Comics, ‘Motu Patlu’ are the awesome twosome of Nickelodeon. Being the first-ever Indian animated characters to have statues at Madame Tussauds, their popularity has been simply spectacular.
Now the show enthralls kids with their hilarious antics and rib-tickling adventures across streaming platforms, games, and wide range of consumer products. Celebrating the 10th birthday of the show, Nickelodeon teamed up with Smile Foundation, India’s charity for underprivileged kids.
John Thattil, Vice President, Sustainability and Resources, said: “We are happy that the children from this school Smile supports (SHED Primary School), have the opportunity to fulfil their dream of meeting Motu and Patlu and be a part of this milestone celebration.

“The show, thanks to Nickelodeon, has brought a smile on many a children’s face in the past 10 years. To add to it the parents and adults watching the show along with their children, also were able to Smile and forget their troubles for some time. Each episode of show, while being entertaining always had a very relevant message which was well received by the children.
“On behalf of Smile Foundation and its partner SHED Primary School we thank Nickelodeon for the joy they have bought to the children especially today by including them in this celebration and we wish Nickelodeon all the very best in continuing to put Smiles on more children’s faces through ‘Motu Patlu’!”
The birthday bash in Mumbai was a riot of fun and games. Straight out of the television screens, Motu and Patlu engaged with the young kids with their silly antics while clicking a lot of selfies.
