Watching cartoon TV shows is the favourite pastime of every kid. Apart from providing entertainment, they take kids out of the confines of the classroom and teach them at a time when they are relaxed and able to absorb the desired knowledge and learnings.
The cartoon TV shows have evolved over the years; there has been a shift from magical themes to more futuristic and scientific themes. Popular cartoon characters include Chhota Bheem, Doraemon, Tom and Jerry, Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Popeye, Dora the Explorer – to name a few. From teaching morals & values to inculcating life skills to flaunting hi-tech gadgets, these cartoon characters spark kids’ imagination and helps them understand new concepts faster while having fun.
