Mumbai, April 27 2016: Summer vacations are undoubtedly the most exciting time of the year for kids. The much awaited break brings along time to indulge in their favourite activities and catch up on their much loved TV shows. To make summers a lot more engaging and entertaining, Cartoon Network is excited to introduce their special summer programming for the month of May for its young audience. The channel has lined up three exclusive movie premieres – ‘Billu Gamer,’ ‘Pette The Prince’ and ‘Mighty Raju: Rio to Goa’ to ensure that the kids have an exciting vacation. Along with these premieres, the channel will also showcase fresh episodes of The Powerpuff Girls, Lai Bhaari Oggy and Sir Haddi Sir.

 

First up, the channel will premiere Billu Gamer on Sunday, May 1, 2016 at 11 a.m. The movie is about a young boy christened Patty who lives with his parents and teenage sister. Patty is very fond of playing video games and Billu happens to be his all-time favourite gaming character. To Patty’s surprise, Billu comes to life and becomes buddies with him and takes Lolly and Ruby with him to the gaming circus. At the circus, unfortunately Lolly makes a mistake which results in a massive havoc. The movie takes an interesting turn as all four of them solve this fiasco.

 

Another movie which is a must watch is Pette The Prince. The movie is around a pampered young brat, born in a royal family and is the sole heir to his father's throne.
