You know that an animated TV show is a hit when kids and kids at heart both enjoy watching it.
It’s not often that we see grown ups watch excitedly what the children are hooked up in the boobtube and vice versa but their are some cartoon series that can satisfy the taste of both age brackets. Take the case of Cartoon Network’s Adventure time, a series has had huge commercial success and highly positive reviews.
It is based on a short produced for Frederator’s Nicktoons Network animation incubator series Random! Cartoons. After the short became a viral hit, Cartoon Network picked it up for a full-length series that premiered in 2010. The series follows the adventures of 14-year-old boy Finn and his best friend Jake, a dog with magical powers. The show became a worldwide hit and can be seen by millions of kids via the kiddie cable channel.
In the Philippines, chocolate milk brand Bonakid Choco Boost by Wyeth, has teamed up with Cartoon Network to bring Adventure Time to life with an amazing tour sure to excite school children around the metropolis. Adventure Time is one of the TV network’s most popular and engaging programs suited for active grade school children and even adults. The partnership seeks to encourage physical and mental engagement among kids in a fun and wholesome way.
The adventure revolves around mystery challenges that test the children’s creativity, imagination, decision making, and agility. Dressed up as Adventure Time’s character Finn, the kids are tasked to save the main character, Jake, who is trapped in a mysterious place called “Ooo”. The land of Ooo is the main setting of Adventure Time where Finn, along with his friends and foes, live. The kids are given six missions to complete, each one filled with exciting missions and challenges guaranteed to stimulate kids’ mental and physical toughness.
Participating kids have been pre-selected to join this highly interactive game, with Bonakid Choco Boost drink as an important component to help them with the bonus mission en route to the finish. This involves shooting balls into holes that represent the correct answers to three given questions about nutrients found in Bonakid Choco Boost: calcium, iron, and zinc. This task alone demonstrates the participants’ mental alertness and good physical coordination, with emphasis on the three nutrients that help support the nutritional growth and development needs of children 7 years and older.
The fun and laughter go beyond the games, with some of the participants animatedly articulating their delight during one leg of the tour. The adventure games raised the kids’ spirits so much that one participant described Bonakid Choco Boost as “life-changing”. There were even some who, obviously stimulated by their enthusiasm after a drink, asked where they can buy the milk and how much it costs.
Packed with energy and nutrients, Bonakid Choco Boost promises to inject life and excitement to play and adventure. This partnership with Cartoon Network is a testimony to that claim, bringing children’s favorite cartoons to life for an energizing and fun activity.
Trully, watching cartoons is one easy way of being young again. It becomes more exciting with the many events tied-up with these shows where everyone is treated to a day full of fun.
