The edutainment channel from the Zee network, ZeeQ, has acquired the rights to air 'Dinosaur Train' and 'Zou' in India.
The 24-hour channel targets children in the age group of 4-14 years and these shows cater to the pre-schoolers in India.
While Dinosaur Train is being aired Monday to Thursday at 4.30 pm, Zou will be aired Wednesday to Thursday at 2 pm, starting August 28.
The half-hour show, 'Dinosaur Train', features two animated episodes with a real palaeontologist interacting with kids who love to explore the world around them.
Meanwhile, 'Zou' is a French animated preschool series, which follows the adventure of a lovable 5-year-old Zebra. The show touches every theme of early childhood and aims to inculcate family values in children.
