Mumbai: Cosmos-Maya’s massively popular IP, Motu Patlu has been declared the 9th most searched keyword in India for the year 2018 by Google Trends. It is the only kids’ animation show to feature in the top 10 search trends. This development comes on the back of consistent top television ratings for the show in the country. It stayed at the top of the rankings every week of 2018.
Motu Patlu was also the 4th most searched TV show in the world for the year 2018. Beating heavily marketed American shows like ‘Lost in Space’ and ‘The Haunting of Hill House’ from the Netflix portfolio, Motu Patlu has emerged as the most searched Indian TV show in the world.
If that was not all, Motu Patlu ended 2018 with more than 3 billion views on WowKidz, Cosmos-Maya’s YouTube channel, despite the fact that Motu Patlu is geo-blocked on YouTube in India.
As of date, Cosmos-Maya has produced more than 400 half-hour episodes of the show along with 18 TV movies and one theatrical feature film.
Speaking on the development, Anish Mehta, CEO Cosmos-Maya said, “Motu Patlu is our biggest property. Our IP creation journey began with Motu Patlu and to see it continuing its golden run is a great feeling. 2019 will be even bigger”
