Among its many monikers of success, Google had declared it to be the most popular animation show in the world, 2 years in a row. The winner of the Most Popular Show for consecutive 5 years at the Kids’ Choice Awards, Motu Patlu has been winning top honours everywhere. The show also holds the distinction of being the only show in the world wherein 1000 stories were created and delivered in a record span of less than 8 years.

Talking about the milestone, Anish Mehta, CEO, Cosmos Maya, said Through Motu Patlu we have created the Indian version of Laurel and Hardy. Our IP creation journey began with Motu Patlu and it’s a great moment for us to see it complete 1000 episodes and maintain the interest of the kids for 8 years. It is a huge achievement for the entire team that has created 1000+ stories in less than a decade for this show. As we now move to a new phase with Motu Patlu going international, we hope that kids continue to watch the show and love it to help achieve the next milestone.”

Commenting on this occasion, Suhas Kadav, creative director behind Motu Patlu said, “The milestone is a celebration for us as it approves our belief in meaningful entertainment. The show has beautifully weaved the journey of these two friends and their quirks. Our characters started their journey from Furfuri nagar and travelled internationally and added more colour and culture to their stories. The show has set trends, won the hearts of the audiences for its storyline and made records, and we couldn’t be prouder. As it makes the 1000-episode mark, we are sure that Motu Patlu will keep raising the bar and continue to be the audience favourite by delivering exciting storylines”
