    Seriously, what’s with the Indian kids channels launching so many channels and then adding more subscription fees? Like with Nick HD+ and Disney International HD? I mean Disney has 5 channels in India now!

    "Motu Patlu" becoming "Fat and Thin" did fit in because one of the characters is fat and the other one is thin. Still don't know if Gattu Battu is actually "strong and weak" (I don't know much about Gattu Battu so I don't think that my assumptions are correct).

    He's actually Motu's nephew according to the description.

    Some Latino YouTuber also did a video about Motu Patlu. Before he ventured to watch the series, he even tried checking the D se Dab list: cool clothes, attitude and new hand moves.

    He removed the Motu Patlu vid for this:

    EDIT: The tweet got removed. If you want to know why it got removed it's because Maya demonetised his video.

    I was lucky to watch the Motu Patlu video before it got deleted.

    Motu Patlu apparently has become a meme now. It should have become a meme at the same time as that Guru Cool video came along.

    Here's what AnimationXpress had to say:

    You know who Motu Patlu are but lots of others don’t. Well, large parts of the world just got to know them! And it’s thanks to the world’s number one YouTuber PewDiePie (real name- Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg). He recently uploaded a video on his YouTube channel (also called as PewDiePie) calling Motu Patlu (sarcastically):
    • “A fantastic anime”
    • “one of the greatest creations of Nickelodeon since the 90s”
    • “to its very core, just a fine animation”
    • “probably one of the greatest animations” he has ever seen
    • “the greatest anime of all time”
    • “the greatest thing that has ever happened”
    He starts with saying that his life “changed for the better in every single way” since he discovered Motu Patlu. He then goes on to explain the character of Motu and his addiction to the Indian fast food item samosa, which he pronounces “samocha.”

    His wry wit then targets the attention to detail in the animation, making a special mention of how the eyes of the characters have been done.

    Many might take this as a pat on the back for Nick India as well as Mumbai Anish-Mehta headed Cosmos Maya, its creator. However what’s not so pleasing is that PewDiePie makes some brazen accusations and not-very-appropriate comments. Like “with Motu Patlu, animation is progressing in a third world country.”

    A clear indication that he is ignorant of the quality of animation being produced in India and the fact that it is no longer a third world country; rather it is amongst the world’s fastest growing economies. Clearly, somebody needs to give him a business book or some articles on how the nation has grown in recent times and has become an emerging global superpower over the past four to five years.

    It is quite evident with the manner he talks that Kjellberg is blank about the animated shows produced in India. With Netflix signing a deal with Green Gold Animation for Mighty Little Bheem, and many international buyers showing interest in Tik Tak Tail and Trigo being selected in the top five at the 2017 MIP Junior International Pitch, India definitely cannot be described as just “progressive in animation.”

    The video has received 1.24 million (about 12 lakhs) views in just 15 hours, and with 57 million subscribers to the channel, the numbers are only going to increase.

    However, if you take this positively, any publicity is good publicity. With this naive attempt, people may start exploring Indian animated shows and in the process, realise what we are hinting at.

    I was probably the only one in Portugal that knew about Motu Patlu for years now before I understood its true meaning on Nick India. Now I just knew that it was starting to become a meme.

    We also had a similar problem with Oggy airing simultaneously on Boing, K2, and Frisbee

    This happened because Motu Patlu finished early on Nick at 10:20pm, while CN and Sonic finish airing Oggy at 10:30pm.

    Thank god Oggy doesn't air here anymore. As much as I like the show I don't want any US TV channel spamming Oggy.

    I thought Oggy was non-dialogue.
