Nick India went from this to being a 24/7 Motu Patlu channel. Really disappointing. Apparently Nick had poor ratings in India causing them to "reintroduce" the channel around 2005. Then the current head of Nick India joined, put Japanese cartoons, less airtime for the American Nick shows, removed sitcoms and started producing local content.

You can see it in the company journey: https://www.viacom18.com/about-us

ZEE TV even replaced the Nick block with a CN block as it wasn't going well: http://www.indiantelevision.com/y2k2/aug/aug87.htm

But that doesn't mean you should stop bringing Nick content completely!! Did Disney and CN stop? They're still bringing their originals here despite not much interested in them!

I'm sure some people out there want to see those shows, but it looks like in India Nick is well known for Ninja Hattori, Perman, Motu Patlu and not the real Nick.

Actually, this Nick India schedule is similar to that one the Nickelodeon block for Lumiere TV Cyprus had...

Also, here are all the Teennick/Nick Jr. bumpers (the video was originally with errors, and so I reuploaded it)

This is clearly a sign that India wasn't ready for Nickelodeon. If Nick India shut down without being "saved" in the mid-2000s, then the joint-venture would never be established and Motu Patlu would air on a non-Nick branded channel operated by Network18.
I think the joint venture was made to launch the COLORS channel and to get Viacom into the Hindi GEC space. They also run their own movie business like Disney’s UTV. Before 2007, there was only MTV, Nick and VH1 but now many regional Colors channels are there, and other Viacom brands like Comedy Central in a way that appeal to Indians.

I'm super excited! As part of the new episodes, a special Nicky Ricky Dicky and Dawn episode has been advertised on Nickelodeon Greece, in which the gang goes for vacation!
While that, new episodes of I Am Frankie, Toon Marty and Hunter Street air every weekend, and they are awesome!

Some Up Next bumpers of Nickelodeon Greece during the 2016-2017 era.

WAIT is this for the favorite greek music artist I just voted, global, or only in Greece? Also, why there are only 4 general categories (2 for actors and 2 for movies) as of now?

Here are other videos I just uploaded

"We were invited by Viacom 18 to pitch for Nickelodeon Sonic’s new channel package.

Cubes come to life: they play, explore, use gadgets and solve puzzles, symbolizing the spirit of curiosity and teamwork in every kid!

This was the perfect opportunity to take our new Octane pipeline for a spin!"

The Nick Pakistan Facebook Page has turned into an ARY Films marketing tool. Nothing about Nick has been posted recently and they keep posting about their upcoming ARY films and other related things.

If there will be a Pakistani equivalent of Motu Patlu adapted to the local culture, then the channel has no future.

At first, I thought Brian Hohlfeld working on many shows Nicole Dubuc worked on was just a coincidence . It turns out they're married. I previously thought the Paul Dini / Misty Lee marriage had the largest age gap (he was born in 1957 while she was born in 1976), but this is the one that's larger (he was born in 1957 while she was born in 1978, making 21 years). I'm not complaining, but this is surprising.
Into the Spider-Verse is definitely one of the better animated films I've seen this year. I really enjoyed its comicbooky art style and animation. I wouldn't mind a sequel.
