Everyone craves to go back in time and relive their childhood. Driven by dreams and an active imagination, childhood is often called the best phase of a person’s life. Kids often wait for their favourite cartoons to air, and then rush to school to discuss it with their friends. Despite engaging in tiresome activities like playing, drawing, even fighting with their siblings, kids love to watch television at all times. Now, since they’re way more imaginative than adults, they watch cartoons more because cartoons provides an escape from the real world. As of today, there are many cartoon tv channels for kids in India.
Some of the top cartoon channels are as follows:
