Mighty Little Bheem wins over the world
Mighty Little Bheem, the adorable, super powered toddler, is celebrating a well-deserved
success worldwide. For its first Original Animated series from India, Netflix placed its

much loved kids animated franchise Chhota Bheem, one of India’s most successful
animated shows. Chhota Bheem has been enthralling audience since its inception in

Speaking on the success of the show, Mr. Rajiv Chilaka, Founder and CEO, Green Gold Animation, said ““Mighty Little Bheem was always an ambitious project in terms of scale and quality. We realized the opportunity but also understood the challenges that come with creating a show that is truly global yet rooted in Indian culture. I believe we have managed to do so as the show has been very well accepted everywhere especially in Brazil, Mexico, The US, Nordics, Africa, Australia and New Zealand. Most of them are new territories for Bheem. It is a very simple and innocent show at heart, with a lot of effort put into the nuances. This is what I believe is resonating with our audience worldwide”
