Chhota Bheem will provide lots of entertainment, with 88 TV episodes and 20 films available on Netflix.

When he wanted to start his own animation franchise, creator Rajiv Chilaka was inspired by Indian mythology.

Child protagonist Bheem is based on Bhim from the ancient epic Mahabharata, who was known for his strength.

Bheem gets his superpowers from eating laddoos, and he serves as the protector and all-around problem solver for the fictitious rural medieval village of Dholakpur.

Netflix owns streaming rights to four seasons of the main Chhota Bheem series, plus a spin-off series called Chhota Bheem Kung Fu Dhamaka.

The 2021 film Chhota Bheem ki Citi Pitti Gul makes its way onto Netflix on December 1, 2022.

The first of Netflix’s Indian Original animated properties is a spin-off of Chhota Bheem, featuring the world’s strongest boy as a baby.

Mighty Little Bheem consists of a main series with three seasons, three limited-run series of three episodes each, and the 20-minute special I Love Taj Mahal.

But it does take some getting used to as Mighty Little Bheem has no dialogue.

Bheem makes baby noises while the adults make wordless exclamations.

Episodes do come with English and Hindi audio descriptions and closed captions.

Motu Patlu originated as a comic strip about a pair of friends who are a lot like Laurel and Hardy.

On Netflix, there are 14 films.

Motu gets into trouble, especially when samosas are around. Meanwhile, the tall Patlu tries in vain to stop him.

The Motu Patlu movies have a variety of backdrops, from robots to dinosaurs to sea creatures to kung fu.

So choosing which film to begin with is really just a question of what your children are most interested in.

With lots of Indian-made content available on Netflix, finding one to watch will not be difficult.

And this is the same for animated films and TV shows, which are great for kids.
