‘Skatoony’ is a British/Canadian/American children's live-action game show, pitting live-action kids against cartoons. In India, Pogo launched a new season of this popular quiz show on 21st September 2008. The daily show was aired every Monday at 11 am.
It was a quiz show where children had to compete with cartoon characters for prizes. The series was first produced in the UK and has been re-imagined for India by Miditech India Pvt. Ltd. Each 'Skatoony' episode comprised four rapid fire rounds, and the winner received a Sony Playstation 3. The series was co-produced with Talent Television (British Version), Blink Studios (Arabic Version) and Marblemedia with Smiley Guy Studios (North American version).
The show has two hosts, Chak Chakachak – the quizmaster and Jimmy Kundu, his best friend. In every episode, everyone including the host, the participants and the audience are animated. The questions asked in each round were relevant for the kid. In every episode, three kids competed with three toons in a cartoon world.
James Fox was the program creator of the original version.
